The Flea Tipper carries TCU… and teaches Kliff Kingsbury a lesson

You might recall a game played 18 years ago. A national title contender played a Big 12 road game. Then came Matt Davison, riding to Nebraska’s rescue against Missouri: That was 1997. The play was called “The Flea Kicker.” Nebraska went on to win a share of the national championship with Michigan. * That Nebraska-Missouri game, of course, was played later in the season. For...

Bret Bielema throws jabs at Kliff Kingsbury, but he’s already lost the fight

While Bret Bielema continues to dig deeper in the asteroid crater he has already carved into the earth, you have to give him one thing: he keeps being himself.

Bret Bielema to Kliff Kingsbury: ‘Don’t be so sensitive’

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema, who isn’t exactly known for a reserved style in front of a microphone, unsuccessfully tried to downplay the aftermath of his team losing to Kliff Kingsbury’s Texas Tech squad on Saturday.
