    Not true.

    Hogville knew about Pittman leaving before many players knew.

  • What do you want to know? 

    Players actually by a large percentage really like and support Bielema.  There are one or two position coaches not very well liked among players, surprisingly to me Anderson is really liked in the Oline room.  Players aren't stupid, they know it's possible a change could be made after this season.   They also honestly believe they are playing hard and fighting for this coach, it's just not working out. 

    Also a side note, there are unfortunately many players currently upset with the fanbase.  They have been called many things when walking off the field and during games that really suprised some of them.  As I've been told, it's not just a comment about a fumble or one bad play, it's been multiple games and multiple just really bad things.  They are disturbed and bothered by these comments.

    Players won't have time to leak any news unless Bielema resigns, in my opinion.  If he were to resign, I could see a team meeting called and he let them know what's about to go on.  If he's canned I assume it's made and he's give. A short time to talk to players as it's being leaked right before a press conference.

  • #11 by Missooie on 13 Nov 2017
  • Also heard that some of the team leaders are not very well liked by some of the other players. Take it for what it's worth.

    I have to disagree with you here.  I know a player on the team and they are not happy with Bret and several other coaches.  In fact, he is even considering leaving if Bret is retained for next year.

    I've heard a certain coach doesn't like being made fun of, to the degree that he wouldn't play the best players if they were guilty of it.
  • #22 by onebadrubi on 13 Nov 2017
  • I read the whole post and before I read the name on it was almost fooled into believing it.  Oneredrubi come up with some of the most rediculous post I’ve read on HV.

    Oh really?  Like what?  To make a statement such as that you shouldn't have any issue coming up with proof to back it up. 

    This came from a current player.  I will not share his name in the open like this.  I will howeve share it with a mod as done in the past or FOTH to verify.

    I messaged with onebadrubi and got his perspective and source.  There are over 100 guys on the roster and they have different perceptions and different things effect them different ways.  After talking, I have no doubt that what he shared is accurate.  Again, one players perception of things can be the polar opposite of another players, but I believe onebadrubi is giving an accurate description of what he was told.   I personally have heard similar statements and I’ve also heard the opposite.  No one is on the same page.  I think that’s a testament to the current level of dysfunction.

    Probably wasn't seeing the field, happens everywhere.

  • Rice, I looked for the post but couldn't find it.   A lot was said (observations) of the demeanor of the players on the sidelines as well as the mom.   Maybe you can find it, interesting post.

    I read it when it was posted, as I said, usually those unhappy aren't playing.

    Yes. The initial Tweet was a joke Tweet that sensationalists and those who will believe anything believed.

    The Tweet that I posted was the same guy following up basically saying, "Chill. That wasn't real."

    Yeah I'm sure they have been taken down.  But I was talking to someone who saw the "celebration party" tweet in real time.  Just wondered if it was these.

    This "this celebration party" happens every Saturday night. It just gets blown out of proportion when they lose.

    No, he actually plays a substantial amount of time.  He just doesn't like the way the personnel handles things and doesn't like the atmosphere they bring.

    Was this the post about a recruits parents saying they couldn't believe how the fans treated their own players?  It was during one of those brutal times this season where the staff's lack of effort was proven on the field, IMO

    Thanks FOTH.  I'm by no means saying every player feels the same way.  I fully believe players like clary feel different than Hammonds, morgan different than Baptiste and so forth. 

    I have real issues with obvious coaching decisions with whose playing, I'm positive players do as well. I was quite amazed however, that this staff still had some players attention and support.

  • Ummmm, totally different story from what a starter told me during their off week. I was told and I quote “Bielema is not the same coach that recruited me; he’s worried about his reputation and show more than the team”
  • #42 by Pork Twain on 13 Nov 2017
  • Not Ryan Mallet messing up the dorm leak but you get what I'm saying. Anyone know anyone attending U of A? What  are they saying?
    Because coaches make a habit of talking about getting fired in front of the players?  I mean, I believe they can get a vibe or a feel for what is going on but as has been mentioned several times, it is likely to vary from one player to the next.

    If Bielema is worried about his reputation it seems to be a bit late.  Pretty sure putting the best players on the field and putting them in a position to succeed and winning some games would have taken care of the " reputation".  His reputation, at this point, is basically a reflection of his coaching ability.   Or lack thereof.

  • Ummmm, totally different story from what a starter told me during their off week. I was told and I quote “Bielema is not the same coach that recruited me; he’s worried about his reputation and show more than the team”

    Hard to defend himself if an AD were to ask why did you have a freshman blue shirt starting over merrick or Wallace.  Or how does a play maker like TJ ride the pine, etc. 

    I definitely agree with the first part however.  There are roughly 150 people Bielema has either employed, recruited, or staffed.   I think you could get 120 or more different stories or philosophies.  Some like the guy, some support the guy, some can't wait for his replacement, some even wish he'd probably stay but get a better supporting cast, and I bet even someone wishes we had a special teams coach.

    We won't know many of the truths until this staff is broken up. Like many times in the past, assistant coaches will release a little info here and there at their next stop, players will say a few tidbits to media in the spring as well if a new coach and staff are in place.
