Or getting drafted.

He did a great job of retaining players, so great that in his 5th year he went 4-8 and got himself fired.

Seriously? Did y’all not hear Hoggets demands?! This is y’alls last warning. I mean it...

God people!  Bret Beliema IS GONE!!!!!!!  Get over it, already!!!!  The point being made is that, despite your bias against him, he did a fantastic job of retaining players and NOT have a lot of attrition.  To be successful at Arkansas, you have to retain your players.  Kudos to coach for keeping players on campus and not recruiting losers who are getting arrested and failing classes.  Now, hopefully, these players will develop into the kinds of players Chad Morris needs to be successful on the field.
You contradicted yourself lol

The bottom line is Bielema didn't win enough games as head coach and apathy was setting in.
This is the thing would make a great case study of Bielema's time at Arkansas.  Bielema didn't suddenly forget how to coach during his time at Arkansas.  The weight gain is dead giveaway of the apathy.  How many successful coaches look like that?  I think having the baby might have something to do with it.  But for whatever reason he obviously had no fire left.

Because Bert NEVER cut chaff like every other school does....

Well since scholarships are no longer 1-year grants but 4-year grants, you have to justify getting rid of players and it CAN'T be performance based. They have to flunk out, get kicked out of school or quit. Bielema recruiting good student-athletes that for the most part stayed out of trouble. If "every other" school is kicking players off the squad, it's because they flunk out, get into to trouble or transfer.

You can either look forward or you can keep looking back and blaming past coaches. I prefer to look forward myself.
