Bret Bielema Arkansas Press Conference: Open Thread

In less than 10 minutes, it'll be official. Officially, official!

Bret Bielema is going to Arkansas, and by now we've had just about 24 hours or so to mull the whole thing over. Barry Alvarez sure seems intent on coaching the Badgers in the Rose Bowl, though we won't know that for sure until tomorrow, probably.

But before that even, Arkansas will introduce Bielema as its new head coach in a 4 p.m. CT press conference in Fayetteville. We'll be tweeting updates throughout on @B5Q and keep this thread open for a while to discuss whatever transpires in this presser. Sad to say, I think "1-0" -- at least Bielema's version -- will be retired.

You can watch the press conference live on Arkansas' website.
