Bret Bielema Mother's Day Cards

Recruiting college football players doesn't just mean recruiting the actual athletes - coaches often have to convince a player's family that their school is the right place for their loved one. Arkansas coach Bret Bielema gave us a reminder of that Friday morning.

Bielema, who took a flight to the NFL Draft to support his players, posted photos of Mother's Day cards he's sending to recruits' mothers. He also mentioned that he's willing to write to girlfriends of recruits - if need be.

This isn't anything new - but usually, we see the finished product from recruits, not coaches. The Razorbacks have done a nice job on the recruiting trail the past few years - we'll see if it continues.
