FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — When the Arkansas Razorbacks go on the road, coach Bret Bielema’s dogs are boarded up as he and his wife Jen travel to the game.
The fourth-year Hogs’ coach provided a colorful explanation for why his dogs don’t travel during his weekly coaches show on Thursday night.
“I’ve got 70 other people I have to watch, let alone his 3-pound ass,” Bielema said about Rick, one of he and Jen’s two Yorkshire Terriers.
“They are caged up, thankfully. (Rick), I don’t think he’s a very smart dog, but he has been able to identify my suitcase because when I pull that out he starts shaking like a little girl. He knows that the day is coming he’s going to get to get sent over to the dog pound. But I think he likes it. He gets to hang out with his buddies all day and apparently have a good time.”
