The delusion of Arkansas football coach Bret Bielema appeared to be at an all-time high with some recent comments.

The embattled coach told the media during a press conference, “I think this team is very close to being where we’ll all be really proud of them.”

I feel so sorry for Bret Bielema at this point. The guy is more delusional than I am when I find my mind wandering with the possibility of dating Emma Watson. He thinks his team is “very close” to being to a point where everybody can be proud? He must be kidding.

The Razorbacks just got beaten up and down the field by TCU to the tune of 28-7. They’re not close. They were three scores away from being even respectable.

There was once upon a time where I considered Bielema my equal. That’s how great rivalries work. Two men go toe-to-toe to find out who is the superior individual. That only works if both sides are pretty close in overall skill.

Now, I’m over here owning the streets of the internet and Bielema is Arkansas thinking being blown out means his program is headed in the right direction. It’s just sad.
