Bret Bielema has endeared himself to Arkansas fans so far with his promise of winning the Southeastern Conference.

The former Wisconsin coach has been on the job with the Razorbacks for two months, filling out his coaching staff and showing a tendency for directness — including engaging critics on Twitter.
