08:17 AM ET 12.05 | University of Colorado officials were left in limbo Tuesday as Cincinnati football coach Butch Jones apparently needed more time to respond to an offer. But there is a possible wild card. Arkansas announced Tuesday it had hired Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema to take over its program, suddenly pushing Wisconsin into the market for a new coach. The Wisconsin job is seen as one of the best in Big Ten Conference and in the Midwest where Jones has spent almost all his life. It's unclear if Wisconsin might now also have interest in Jones, who has talked with at least six different schools about job openings the past two years. Jones also took part in a press conference at Cincinnati on Tuesday to discuss the Bearcats' appearance in the Belk Bowl.

Wisconsin all day Butch...or wait it out and keep a good thing at Cincy. its only a matter of time before they join the ACC or Big 12/10.

side note: how about Old Dominion possibly winning the FCS National Championship in only the programs fourth(?) year back. could this be the first program to win the NC and then move up to FBS the following year?

you guys think NDSU can repeat?

long time fellas, glad to be back.
