Feet are to Rex Ryan what kneel-downs are to Bret Bielema
HOOVER, Ala. — Arkansas Bret Bielema was regarded as one of the best interviews at SEC Media Days.
He got personal Wednesday, tearing up when mentioning the three seniors he brought with him from Fayetteville, Ark. Then he got even more intimate, going as far as to discuss one of his … fetishes?
Bielema on kneeling on the 2-yard line vs. Texas: "It was a proud moment. Borderline erotic."

A formation of 11 OL scoring a TD from the 1-yard line to win the NC would definitely take Bielema from "borderline erotic" to, you know.

Oh sure, if I say something on the football field is erotic, I get weird looks, but if Bielema does it…

Bret Bielema just used the word "erotic" at an official, SEC sanctioned event. Have a good Wednesday, everyone.

Ashamed that nobody at SEC Media Days was brave enough to ask Bielema the follow up: “if that’s borderline, what’s full-on erotic?"

Bret Bielema calling Arkansas taking a knee against Texas “borderline erotic” makes me think 50 Shades of Bielema would be a hell of a read.

His “erotic” comment comes one year after he lauded the backside of defensive lineman Bijohn Jackson.
Pressed to clarify his comments in a separate press conference, Bielema chuckled and asked, “Has that gone viral already?”
It’s understandable, though, when put into practical terms. Arkansas carried a 17-game losing streak into the second half of the 2014 season before crushing LSU and Ole Miss. Then his team ended a three-year bowl drought by thumping the historic Texas Longhorns in Houston.
South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier and LSU’s Les Miles won’t coach forever, but the SEC media is in good hands as long as coach Bret Bielema stays in the conference.
