Tweet from CBSChicago.com sports editor Adam Hoge...
"Reliable source tells me Tennessee has at least reached out to Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema."
I'll be honest ... I haven't heard Bielema's name at all until this tweet.

Wes-delete my thread.
That name is definitely out of left field.
Well... I'm not sure how I'd feel about that guy...
I'm liking this. He was my darkhorse pick from Day One. Did you see what he did to Nebraska last night?
Guy complained about Urban Meyers recruiting tactics. He would get eaten alive in the SEC, I'd be furious of we hired Beilema.
3 big ten titles
2-4 in bowl games
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
68-24 record so far, owning the Big Ten. Three straight conference titles. Only makes $2.5 million.
They hung 70 on Nebraska last night and rushed for more than 500 yards.
I like the way they play up there, but he'd need to bring in SEC caliber athletes to get it done down here. Could be an interesting choice. Still rather have Strong though.
Owning the Big 10? The only reason they played last night was because PSU and OSU are on probation.
Agreed. End of the day guys we need to hire a winner. This guy wins. Would be a good option.
what is the deal with strong? have we reached out to him or not?
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
Yes, three straight Rose Bowls is owning the Big Ten. They backed into it this year but it still counts amd nobody up there is going to give it back.
Pretty sure we interviewed him on Friday, but Louisville sources deny that. Based on what WRK are saying, it sounds like he's not near the top of the list.
Ha very true... His remarks about Meyer coming in and contacting other teams recruits is embarrassing. I don't want him here.
No disrespect to your program, but this is a non-starter.
1. He hates the SEC- on record stating that
2. Wisconsin is one of the largest and most profitable athletic departments in the country. UT will not outpay UW.
3. He is best friends with his AD. Hand picked successor.
Good luck with your search though
Ain't a way in the world we can spell that man's name. Bulimia?
I would LOVE this hire. 68-24 in 7 seasons with 3 straight Big 10 championships w/last nights pasting of Nebraska. This year is his 3rd straight Rose Bowl appearance. He is a defensive coach!
**BTW- Wisconsin won the Big 10 title last night w/ a red shirt SR QB, Curt Phillips from Kinsport, TN.**
The timing of this new rumor is too perfect for Bielema. He just put on a show at the B1G championship and got his fans all excited, even after a pretty disappointing season overall. I'd bet his agent put this rumor out to capitalize on his stock being back up again.
Good stuff thanks. Don't want a crybaby from the Big 10 anyway.
yeah,anyone remember the 85 sugar bowl? i didn't care how we got there all i cared about was i was in new orleans having a blast.
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
He wasn't the only coach up there who complained about Meyer. They had a different recruiting culture in that league before Urbie got up there.
Make sure you let Hart know how you feel, Drizz. I'm sure it means a lot to him.
Remember what happened the last time we played Wisconsin? Big slow offensive linemen that couldn't block anybody on our defense, that won't work in the SEC. No Thanks.
He's 1-5 against Ohio St..... Interesting
Yeah, we pasted them, 21-17. I guess we showed them their kind of football just doesn't work.
