Bill Snyder, Bret Bielema joke about motorcycles at Liberty Bowl


Even though the Autozone Liberty Bowl is still over three weeks away, the Arkansas Razorbacks and Kansas State Wildcats have already arrived at the stadium in Memphis. The two head coaches, Bill Snyder and Bret Bielema, did a press conference on Thursday and it seemed that they both have a good sense of humor.

Snyder started joking around that he had arrived to the stadium on a motorcycle. Bielema quickly jumped in and said that it was “a touchy subject.”

This is obviously a reference, and a subtle shot, at former Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino. He got into a motorcycle accident while riding with a young assistant for the Razorbacks.

It was later revealed that Petrino had been having inappropriate relations with her and he was subsequently asked to resign from his post. Bielema usually opens his mouth and makes an idiot out of himself, but this time, he was actually pretty humorous.
