Bret Bielema is as outspoken as any coach in college football, and that’s unlikely to change. Now he’s taken aim at the rivalry trophy up for grabs during his Arkansas team’s matchup with LSU this weekend.
Of the Golden Boot, Bielema said:
“It kind of looks like a bad neck chain from the 80s. It’s a little gaudy. It’s a little big. But it’s gold-plated.”
While I’d love to sit here and make fun of “Bert” for those comments, I just can’t. I’m going to say something I didn’t think I’d ever say: Coach Bielemat is right.
See for yourself:
The Golden Boot has been awarded to the winner of the rivalry game since 1996. LSU holds a 12-8 record in the series since then.
