Big Ten Tweets of the Week: Bret Bielema Wants a Big Piece of You, Notre Dame
Every Friday on the Big Ten Blog, we'll bring you the best Big Ten-related tweets of the week.
Notre Dame and Wisconsin have a long, storied history...of not playing each other. The two teams met up for a three-game series in the early 1960s, but those are the only post-WWII meetings in the "rivalry" or whatever you call two teams that never meet. Wisconsin won two of three games, for whatever it's worth.
At any rate, Bret Bielema must be feeling a little nostalgic for the '60s (note: he was born in 1970), because he took to Twitter to effectively call Notre Dame out after an opening in Notre Dame's slate became apparent:
Have tried to get Notre Dame on in the past schedules, now Michigan is taking a break in 2018 & 2019. Will see what we can do for Wisco!— Bret Bielema (@BretBielema) June 29, 2012
Note to Notre Dame: make this happen.
In less fun news, today (June 29) marks the six-year anniversary of a very sad day in Northwestern, Big Ten, and college football history.
Pat Fitzgerald has filled in admirably for Walker and looks to be the head man in Evanston for a long, long time, but the football world is poorer without Walker. And he was only 52. To put that in perspective, there are five head football coaches in the Big Ten who are at least 53 years old, and Kevin Wilson turns 51 in the middle of the season.
Back to upbeat things. Former Ohio State commit Alex Anzalone is still weighing his options in recruiting, and he's got no shortage of time to spend reconsidering his next move. That's not to say he's just sitting at home, however; he just visited nearby Penn State again, and according to Penn State commit Adam Breneman and Rivals.com recruiting Mike Farrell, apparently it went well:
And lastly, while combing for material, we checked out the Twitter handle @buckeyefootball to see if it's something the university maintains or just a news aggregator or whatever. It's neither. It is, however, the best Ohio State feed on all of Twitter. Yes it is. Behold.
And then what happens??? And then what happens??? TELL ME, DAMN IT! I need to know if Michigan ever wins!
The only way this could possibly be better is if there were a third, final tweet a week later that just said "Twitter is stupid."
