SEC commissioner spoke to Bielema to discuss flop: 'We are moving forward'
Whether you love or hate Bret Bielema, you probably judge him one way or another for the "altercation" he had with Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson Saturday night in Tuscaloosa. The Razorback head coach certainly didn't break any rules on the play but his actions have once again resulted in varying levels of reactions.
After the video went viral Monday, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey reached out to Bielema and publicly stated no discipline would be handed out. Sankey released the following statement Tuesday regarding the incident:
"I visited with Bret over the phone on Monday and we discussed the play that has now become widely reviewed through a brief video clip," Sankey said. "Football is played in an intense competitive environment and I reminded him of the need for head coaches to resolve with their own players issues that may arise, which was his intent. The unsportsmanlike penalty assessed on the play was not directly associated with Bret's efforts to intervene at the end of the play and we are moving forward in a positive manner."
