Barry Switzer rationalizes Bielema's hiring

So, Barry Switzer has weighed in on Bret Bielema's hiring at Arkansas. It's a great quote.

Here's what Switzer had to say;

"The first thing I heard today was that he grew up on a pig farm. That's quite a start in my book. And my last memory was watching him hang 70 on Nebraska. Just those two facts are enough. Then, I hear that he's out of the Hayden Fry-Bill Snyder-Barry Alvarez coaching tree. Oh, that's enough for me to like a lot. Then, I hear he's got a 27-year-old wife. Okay, we can stop. I like him."

Instant classic.
