First things first: Bret Bielema is not the first football coach — and won’t be the last, either — to make an impression on a new fanbase with some big-chested talk behind a podium.

All the same, if you throw down a gauntlet in Nick Saban’s direction in any public forum, you’re going to raise some eyebrows. According to Arkansas football site, at the Saline County Razorback Club fish fry, Bielema had this to say about his new conference home, its current champion and that champion’s coach:

“The reason the SEC is talked about all the time is one team, because of their dominance. But I didn’t come here to play Alabama. I came here to beat Alabama.

“You can take Saban’s record when he was at Michigan State and when he was a coach in the Big Ten and put it against mine, and he can’t compare.”
