Bielema’s Wife Calls UW Loss ‘Karma’
The ending to Arizona State’s 32–30 victory over Wisconsin on Saturday night was downright bizarre.
With the ball in field goal range, no timeouts left and time winding down, Badgers QB Joel Stave centered the ball and took a knee, assuming he’d have time for a clock-killing spike on the next play. Only there was no next play.
The Sun Devils jumped on the ball after Stave laid it on the turf, thinking he had not taken a knee and thus fumbled. The refs then took a long time spotting the ball for the next play, so much so that time ran out on Wisconsin and ASU escaped with a victory.
The wife of ex-Wisconsin head coach and current Arkansas head man Bret Bielema, Jen, poured salt in the wound of Badger fans after months of seeing her husband hounded on Twitter by them.

Needless to say, that didn’t go over well in the Twittersphere.

And those are just the clean responses.
Is anyone else really hoping for an Arkansas-Wisconsin bowl game now?
