Bret Bielema might be the new coach on the SEC block, but he’s not going to take any guff from bullying fans.

Bielema, the former Wisconsin coach who took the Arkansas head job last month, maintains his own Twitter account and responds to almost every tweet, including the ones from the haters (see Bielema’s comments at the end of the tweet).

Bielema, who coached Wisconsin for seven seasons and led the team to three consecutive Rose Bowls, didn’t endear himself to Wisconsin fans when they learned that he had been flirting with Arkansas since last September. So, the hatred from Wisconsin fans is understandable.

However, answering every nasty tweet is going to get tiresome and eventually Bielema will have to concentrate on actually coaching in the SEC. Still, for now, it’s interesting to watch how brazen fans can get when they know the coach – and not one of his office lackeys – is actually monitoring the Twitter feed.
