Why is it that Bountygate is such a big deal in the NFL and Sean Payton is suspended a year for having knowledge of dirty play, yet nothing came of Bielema all but bragging that he told his players to try to injure Mike Martin?
You can read the full article here:
After the game Saturday, Bielema said his offensive line -- which grinds opposing defenses into dust by pulling its guards and ramming them into linebackers downfield -- was prevented from pulling by Michigan. He used the word "tactics," which is coaching code for "holding," to describe what Michigan's defensive line was doing.
"But we rectified the situation," Bielema said.
When asked how, Bielema recalled a chop-block penalty that went against his team -- and took a touchdown off the scoreboard -- in the second quarter. Wisconsin lost seven points but delivered a message.
I remember this when it happened and I have despised that Gomer Pyle looking mf'er Bielema ever since.
