SEC Media Days: Bielema talks quarterbacks, being a father

SEC Media Days: Bielema talks quarterbacks, being a father”

Allen led the Southeastern Conference past year both in total passing yards (3,430) and yards per attempt (8.3).

Bret Bielema has some catching up to do in that department, too.

"Austin's a smart dude", said Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema.

He got about 500 text messages including one from the SEC's head honcho after he and wife Jen welcomed daughter Briella Nichole Bielema, who weighed 7.8 pounds when she was born.

He looked at his cellphone and was surprised to see SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey's name. "I had never FaceTimed with a head football coach in the SEC". One of those people was SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey, which resulted in pocket-dial dilemma.

Texas A&M and Arkansas will meet September 23. "I said, 'I apologize, I must have butt-dialed you.' That was a unique experience". "I don't think I can go much further than that one".

Now in his 5th year, Bret's stamp is firmly on this team, "these guys are guys that I recruited or decided to make a scholarship offer to". One-time Georgia commitment Devwah Whaley (602 rushing yards) gets a chance to be the featured back.

"I give a lot of credit to the SEC in allowing this to happen, because he truly is a kid that's done everything right", Bielema said". He is the only coach in program history to lead the Razorbacks to three straight bowl games. "Mine aren't getting any money, I don't know about anybody else's", Bielema said.

For everything that makes us so excited about media days-namely, that it's something, anything, about football after a long offseason-I'll let you in on a media days secret as a former media days attendee: They are miserable. Bielema was asked about quarterback play in the SEC with the league's returning talent at that position, including Arkansas' Austin Allen who led the SEC in passing yards previous year. That's pretty neat. He said, Why were you calling me?
