Yes, our pal BERT wore custom blingy Air Force 1s to SEC Media Days. It was inspired by Dan Mullen's choice of footwear the day before. Bielema won this little battle. He made reference to starting a Nike vs Adidas war, but we all know how that would turn out.

This was the part of the speech everyone seemed to like the most. It was all about how the team overcame all those close losses over the last couple of years and how he's proud to wear those scars because of what they led to and will continue to lead to.

About the only thing people seemed to care about on Tuesday was Steve Spurrier's comment about Arkansas and Tennessee doing cartwheels after 7-6 seasons while people seem to be writing off South Carolina after theirs. It was cute. "Elder."

All the coaches have been asked about dealing with team discipline given some of the high-profile issues that have taken place this offseason. This was Bielema's response. Arkansas has (knock on wood) had few legal issues involving players in Bielema's tenure.
