or maybe in your 10 yr old minds you think it is cute. Really it just makes you sound like an inbred from Alabama.

How do you know they aren't exactly that?  That may be why they do it? Ask them if they're married yet, and if so, were they related before marriage?

They called him Bert at Wisconsin too. I know he hates it, but I thought it was a funny nickname for a while.

Why are so many people upset about using the name 'Bert'? It's not like it's a nasty name. How many years did we call Nutt 'Dale', or MOTHO, or Hootie?

I've explained at length on here why I use it -- goes back to his 2nd year at Wiscy when my Wiscy relatives began referring to him that way.  They loved him at the time and simply thought it was a kinda humorous name.

So not only not funny, not even original. A "funny" nickname would be something like Big Pappa Walrus or The Big Baluga, but Bert, Really?

No, it's not more juvenile.  Calling people names to insult them is especially juvenile on a message board where people call themselves cute screen names.  Using words to insult people is a form of bullying.  It's immature, petty, and childish.

Lots of people make money from weak products.  George Lucas made a movie about a duck named Howard.  I doubt he gave any money back.  And I doubt if people purposely call him names because he had a bad movie.

Calling people derogatory nicknames is pathetic.  Don't say, 'it's just a name, don't be so defensive.'  You know exactly what you are doing.  You are using it in a demeaning way that shames a person for no other reason than he doesn't win football games.  How pathetic is that?  Makes me sick.

I have skin and dignity to go with it.  I criticize people for their actions, but I call them by name because I'm not willing to wallow in deeply personal insults just because I don't like the results of his coaching.  He has a family and his name means something to them.

That's exactly right.  I disagree strongly with a lot of people on here. I also am ready for BB to leave and be replaced.  But I'm not willing to purposely try to bully or shame the man personally when my only gripe against him is that I think he's proven he can't win enough games.

Call people by their actual name.  It's not hard and it shows you're a dignified adult.

Doesn't fit at all.  Bret fits very well and he'd say that to your face if you'd come out behind that computer.

Exactly. People calling Bret, "Bert" believe in their own little man way, it's insulting to him. Seeing as how they can't do anything other than call him names, they are stuck with all they've got...and that just happens to be the name "Bert".

Go back to your safe spaces you bunch of pansies. Every coach out there gets a nickname or juvenile monicker. Bert is as mild as it gets. People call Saban Satan. They call McElwain the Swamp Donkey. Made fun of Les Myles all the time. Come back at the end of football season and we will get you girls a participation trophy. Geez.

Because unlike Houston Nutt, Bret Bielema has done nothing but run a clean program and represent the University with class. He has stated in the past he doesn't like that nickname. He should be and probably is going to be fired at the end of the season. I know it is probably too much to ask but our fans should have some class and stop insulting him.
