Bret Bielema reportedly wants to coach Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl before jetting to Arkansas. Do you support this?

If you haven't heard the news yet, Bret Bielema has left Wisconsin to become the new head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks. This has come as a bit of a shock to everyone, considering the relatively equal footing that the two football programs stand on. But in the end, it seems that SEC coaching salaries and the opportunity to coach in what is widely considered to be college football's top division wins out over other considerations.

According to ESPN's Mark Schlabach, Bielema wants to stick around and coach the Badgers through the Rose Bowl before taking over at Arkansas.

Schlabach followed up that tweet with another, speculating about how AD Barry Alvarez might feel about this.

I'm on the same page with Schlabach on this, but I suspect that there are plenty of people on both sides of the aisle. Where do you stand on this issue? Vote in the poll, and discuss in the comments.
