I’m chalking this up as selfishly, very good news for Northwestern in 2013. Fresh off Wisconsin’s butt-whooping of Nebraska to achieve the extremely rare air of three straight Rose Bowls for the Badgers, Bret Bielema has bolted one of the seemingly more attractive jobs for at best a lateral move to SEC Arkansas. As this story is just breaking, it will be interesting to see just how much money it took to sway the man who went 68-24 in Madtown. Will Matt Canada, the recently sainted offensive coordinator be next in line? What will it all mean? One thing is sure, there will be a transition factor in place for next year, which is fine by me as I was downright frightened by our 2013 date with Wisky – in Madtown on October 12, 2013 – after seeing the B1G Championship.
We’ll have much more as the pieces of the puzzle settle. Quite a crazy time. One thing is for sure, this is the year that college became “all about the money”.
