* HOG COACH BRET BIELEMA GIVES GOOD TWEET: Today was Razorback Coach Bret Bielema's day to meet media the annual SEC gathering with reporters. Twitterwas full of his comments, notably:

Bret Bielema said beating Texas in a bowl game last season was 'borderline erotic'.

He also said he had a selfish interest in putting his heavyweight offensive line on the cover of the Hog media guide — a better fit for him.
