There are worrying rumblings that all might not be well with the BICEP results! What they claimed may well exist but perhaps their observations did not measure it. The rumour is their readings were contaminated by foreground galactic polarisation.
So at present the odds look 50:50 as to whether it was the big deal after all.
Later in the year Planck should confirm it (or not) so don't abandon the Big Bang just yet.
