Jen Bielema on Twitter: Wisconsin loss to Arizona State is karma

Bret Jen Bielema

Jen Bielema continues to receive notice for her Twitter actions.

Bielema was watching the end of the Wisconsin Badgers-Arizona State Sun Devils game on Saturday night, which had a controversial finish that left Wisconsin with a 32-30 loss. Bielema, whose husband Bret left Wisconsin for Arkansas after seven successful seasons leading the Badgers, termed the 32-30 loss “karma” for Wisconsin:

Wisconsin completely botched the final 18 seconds of the game, and so did the referees by not setting up the ball or calling a delay of game penalty on ASU. The Pac-12 later admitted the referees screwed up with the way they handled the ending.

But why was Jen calling the loss/referee screwup karma for Wisconsin?

Jen’s husband Bret decided to leave Wisconsin for Arkansas in search of the SEC payday. He left on his own, surprising most people tied to the Wisconsin program.

Did he leave because Wisconsin couldn’t give him and his coaching staff the kind of money he wanted? And would that be the type of karmic payback Jen was talking about? Or was she referring to ungrateful Wisconsin fans who sent her nasty messages because they were angry with Bret for leaving the program? Maybe it’s a touch of both.

Regardless, between this message and Jen starting the “Throw the A” trend at Arkansas, we know she is more than comfortable with her husband’s new home.
