Arkansas is 2-3 on the season after a 48-22 loss to South Carolina last weekend, making head coach Bret Bielema's seat even hotter as the first college football coach firing of the season has already happened. Some fan (anti-fan?) edited Bielema's Wikipedia page to blow off some steam, and called out the Razorback's coach.
Some of the edits — like changing his sport to soccer — weren't too bad. But his playing career was switched to "competitive money eating" and his annual salary edited to "WAAAAY Too Much."
Larry Brown pointed out the edits on Twitter:

Since arriving at Arkansas, Bielema is 27-29 with the Razorbacks, and has failed to finish higher than third in the SEC West, tying for third once, tying for fifth last season and finishing 7th each of his first two years.
Bielema's teams are 10-24 in SEC play under his watch, and the Razorbacks are off to an 0-2 SEC start this season.
Arkansas' two wins this year have come against FCS Florida A&M and the Sun Belt's New Mexico State. They have losses to then No. 23 TCU, Texas A&M and South Carolina, and have Alabama on the schedule this weekend.
Things aren't looking great for Bielema, but his buyout is a whopping $15.4 million. Last year Bielema was the 17th-highest paid coach in all of college football. Arkansas either needs to wait out his contract or eat a huge chunk of cash.
