Found April 01, 2013 on Shirts With Random Triangles:
Is being in the SEC already giving first-year Arkansas head football coach Bret Bielema a swelled head? Speaking in front of the Saline County Razorback Club in Benton, Ark., the former Wisconsin HC boasted how he had a better record in the Big Ten than Alabama HC Nick Saban. "The reason the SEC is talked about all the time is one team, because of their dominance. But I didn't come here to play Alabama. I came here to beat Alabama. "You can take Saban's record when he was at Michigan State and when he was a coach in the Big Ten and put it against mine, and he can't compare." Saban had a 34-24-1 in record in five years as HC of Michigan State. Bielema was 68-24 during his seven-year tenure as Wisconsin HC, and went to three Rose Bowls (and lost all three). Sadly for Bielema, he is now in the SEC, where Saban has accumulated four BCS titles as HC of LSU and Alabama. Advantage: Saban. (al.com)
