Big Ten Fallout: Jim Harbaugh, Mark Dantonio, Jack Conklin, and...Bret Bielema?

Welcome to the Fallout - Big Ten edition. 


Bret Bielema? What's he doing here? 


I've got a little list. I've got a little list. 
Pat Forde places first-year Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh at the top of his list of "College football's most intriguing coaches of 2015." Ohio State's Urban Meyer comes in at second. Iowa's Kirk Ferentz, Nebraska's Mike Riley, Wisconsin's Paul Chryst, and Michigan State's Mark Dantonio also make the list. (Dr. Saturday)



I Ain't Ever Satisfied.

Insanity


There's a possibility, but no chance. 
Patrick Vint takes a tweet about a meeting between Arkansas head coach (and Iowa alumni) Bret Bielema and legendary former Iowa head coach Haden Fry, and speculates that Bielema coaching Iowa someday (presumably when Kirk Ferentz is an ex-Hawkeye head coach) isn't out of the question.
