Wisconsin fans have reveled in coach Bret Bielema’s lack of success during his first season at Arkansas and now they have a witty T-shirt to commemorate the Razorbacks’ 3-9 season.
The story behind this simple red shirt, which is being sold in a store across from the Wisconsin University Book Store, is simple.
Following Wisconsin’s controversial 32-30 loss to Arizona State early last season, Bielema’s wife tweeted the hashtag ”#karma” much to the ire of every Wisconsin fan on the planet.
Of course, after she did that, Arkansas, which was 3-0 at the time, went on to lose the rest of their games, including an 0-8 SEC record. It was the first nine-loss season in school history and the first time the Razorbacks had gone winless in conference play since 1942.
And Wisconsin fans took delight in it all.
While Wisconsin fans had some hard feelings toward Bielema for plotting his departure from the Badgers’ program just a few weeks after the 2012 season started, those feelings were intensified by Jen Bielema’s ill-fated tweet.
It’s too bad Wisconsin and Arkansas don’t have plans to play each other in the near future, but that won’t stop these shirts from becoming popular around Madison.
