Arkansas coach Bret Bielema is never one to shy away from a tasty quote so the fact he threw a little shade at two conference opponents during National Signing Day festivities isn’t surprising.
“Florida is kind of the new Ole Miss,” Bielema said. “They’re doing some things recruiting that kind of shocks you a little bit.”
Bielema did not elaborate on what Florida or Ole Miss do that is so shocking but suggested it’s now a “different world.”
UPADTE: Bielema is now saying this was meant as praise for Ole Miss.
Recruiting, man. It’ll bring out the shudder face in even the most venerable of coaches.
