• Baby Bielema will be a girl so she won’t be playing playing football according to Coach Bielema. Talked about how he understands why he was warned about the first trimester and now gets it.
• He dropped one-liners left and right. Most hit the mark.
• Noted he could still add 3-4 players to the class via graduate transfer, blue shirt on something else. Some rule aspects he could make advantage of. Did mention OL and DL as possibilities.
• WR Jordan Jones is a guy that jumps out at him of those who redshirted this past season. Almost played him last year He’s very fast and very long.
• New DC Paul Rhoads: On the defensive side of the ball it starts with stopping the run … and that will be the first order of business this spring.
• OC Dan Enos - Excited to have seven offensive early enrollees. Loe’s having the nation’s best junior college WR (Brandon Martin) and nation’s best junior college tight end Jeremy Patton, set to arrive in June.
• Safety signee Montaric Brown may look 8 in the face, but also plays football very violently.
