Hearing today that Bret Bielema is emerging as a candidate for #Colorado coaching job. @RapSheet reports the #Giants assistant is interviewing with CU. Bielema had been interested in MSU job, too, which went to Colorado’s Mel Tucker. He also talked to Boston College.

As I’ve said before, I really do hope Bielema becomes a head coach again in major college football. That might sound surprising to all of you out there, but it shouldn’t.
Rivalries are better when both sides are flying high. Ever since Bielema left Wisconsin, his life has been one failure after another.
He flamed out with the Razorbacks, and hasn’t accomplished much at all since. I need him back at the top of his game.
It’s not fun when only one side is winning!
Is Colorado a great job? No, but it’s still Power Five football. He’d make a few million dollars a year, he’d be in a major conference and he has the chance to build a program and turn it around.
I sincerely mean it when I say I hope Colorado hires Bielema. The moment he cashes the first check, I’ll go right back to cheering against him.
