This is Bret Bielema’s wife, Jen—one of the few women in this world who can slap on a pig nose and somehow make it work.
The Arkansas football coach posted the goofy picture to Twitter, where it was spotted by Nate Scott of For The Win. As you can see, the image is a marriage of team spirit and “woo pig-sooie” pride:
Jen also posted a selfie with the pig snout:
Naturally, social media users and Razorbacks fans didn't fail to notice Arkansas' first lady showing off her school spirit.
At this point, some of you may be wondering how Bret Bielema—a man for whom six packs come by the can—ended up with a woman who can pull off a piggish facial ornament.
In other words, how did he end up with her?
Bielema says he doesn’t know. He once famously claimed to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “In football terms, I outkicked my coverage a hundred times over.”
Translation: I have no idea how I managed to wrangle this one.
There you have it, Razorbacks fans. College football is (almost) officially here, and what better way to get the blood pumping for Saturday’s game against Louisiana Lafayette than your coach showing off his age-defying wife on social media?
In truth, Arkansas fans hardly need any pumping up. These people are baby-crazy when it comes to their football. They’ve done everything short of sacrifice livestock in the name of their program and their new coach.
For example, this video of Arkansas fan “@LizHoney” singing with a taped-up nose.
And this video of two tone-deaf guys singing “I’m a Bielema.”
Indeed, these are crazy people—beautiful, weird and an extremely passionate people. And they're ready for some football.
