04:47 PM ET 12.10 | Among the initial points of contact between new Arkansas coach Bret Bielema and athletic director Jeff Long: a letter the then-Wisconsin coach sent Long in praise of Bobby Petrino's termination:"Here at UW I have a great AD because he is a man of his word and asks the same for all of us. Best wishes moving forward and stay strong. It was the right call!"

How hilarious would it be it Bielema was caught having an affair with an intern, somebody needs to set him up just for the laugh. Lot's of college ladies need the money.

Yet another destination job tactic surfaces: ingratiating oneself to and servile adulation of the AD of another school.

Can't hitch oneself to a single wagon...

From what I understand he also included what could only be a resume.

He took a step down the ladder instead of a step up.

Hey...it's called being proactive.

You can build a thousand bridges ... but you suck one *** and they'll never call you a bridge builder again.

Wasn't that Bielema's wife on the back of that Harley?

Don't think Arky will be scheduling W KY anytime soon, eh?

Speaking of W KY, can you believe Petrino has stooped that low to get back into coaching. I mean the guy's name was out there for every prominent opening, Auburn, TN, KY, TT, and he ends up at da Hilltoppers of Bowling Green, KY.

Damn how the mighty have fallen.
