JL loves coaching stability, loves CBB, and loves his branding (#NeverYield and doing it the "right way"). Ain't gonna happen this year.

Maybe Vegas is underestimating the average Arkansas fan's tolerance for mediocrity?

Maybe Vegas is overestimating Jeff Long's desire to field a national-discussion worthy football program?

Maybe Bielema surprises us all and puts together a season rendering this type of speculation irrelevant.

For the Waltons, Tyson's, and J.B. Hunt family, 5 Mill a piece would be chicken feed to them. That being said, it ain't happening.

Maybe Vegas knows a casual college football bettor doesn't know Bielema's buyout but rather his record here and set those odds to rake in bets on both sides?

The Vegas odds-makers have a pretty good track record (they HAVE TO in order to maintain their clout and respect) - - - but they're not proven right ALL of the time.  Time will tell if they've hit the nail on the head this time, - - - or if they've hammered the wrong nail.

How much are the Walton' s giving to the athletic program guv??



Also it would be more like 20MM with assistant buyouts. The new coaches buyout.

People who have that kind of money don't part with it as easily as people think, and certainly not for zero return on their investment.

There is ZERO chance of CBB being let go this year barring some kind of Ole Miss style crisis. NONE.

The rumor has always been that various books in Vegas have one person inside each program that feeds info. I somewhat believe this and somewhat doubt this. I somewhat believe it because I know darn well that Vegas researches contracts when coming up with lines like this. I doubt it because having a man on the take all over the country would eventually be turned up imo.

CBB isn't getting fired this year... No way No how.

Johnny Tyson one told me that the notion there are big bucks boosters in this state who would drop millions to get rid of a Razorback coach is laughable. He said the people he knows with money aren't willing to waste it on buyouts.

15-1 odds.  Isn't that like 6% chance of getting fired?   I would say CBB is safe with those odds.

Now I think CBB needs to win 8  or more this year or he will find his name on the smokin hot seat next year. 

But I think Sumlin must win 9 or more this year or he may not keep his job.  Malzhon is suppose to be challenging Bama this year so lots of pressure on him to succeed.  If Auburn doesn't win 10 games this year and get a big bowl game I think his seat gets very hot.

I'm pretty surprised they gave Bret the highest odds at 16:1.  So that means they'd pay $16 for every $1 bet that he is the first canned.  That's a good bet if it pays.

So what odds would they give that Bret is NOT the first SEC coach fired?  1/16:1?  Pretty sure that's not how it works, but I'd bet a huge sum on that deal if it did.  By my calculation, that's 6.25%.

The only way Bret leaves is on his own accord - and to another job.  He won't quit, nor should he.

The risk we have as Razorback fans is that Bret decides the challenge is too great.  That would be a terrible realization for some of us.

Just because a mediocre coach could possibly recognize his own shortcomings... that doesn't sound like a 'risk' as you put it. 

Six years ago our football program finished the season ranked #5 in the country.  Just because some people can't be successful doesn't mean others can't or won't. 

Irrelevant though, because Burtt isn't turning down the $$ to leave where so many have apparently already decided the 'challenge is too great'.

Chip Kelly at either A&M or TN is a little scary with the talent they can get.

The talent would be better than he could get at Oregon.

It's called "throwing good money at bad" and successful business people don't usually do such things especially in a situation like Arkansas Football which is going to make money simply by being a member of the SEC.  Yes smart business people do "cut their losses" when it's time, but the UA is in a great financial position so there would be no need to cut one's losses. All that to say this. I agree with Mike and Johnny Tyson, no one is getting fired without cause.

Re: Vegas says Bielema best odds on SEC coach to be fired.


No it doesn't.  That info is from the same  USA Today article that we had a 7 page thread about, 10 days ago.


The odds are the first coach to be fired, which is not the same  bet as best odds on coach to be fired.   Sumlin is more likely to be fired but his tougher games are late in the season, so him being the first coach fired isn't as likely, same with Gus.

Basically they set the line at 6.25% we lose our first 3 real games (TCU, A&M, and South Carolina) and then he gets a pink slip then or after the Bama game.

Uh, no... just pointing out there's little risk in Bielema suddenly figuring out he's not cut out to win on the big stage.  If this was the case you'd rather have that happen then him continue in blissful ignorance, right?

The odds quoted are to be the first coach fired on out of all 115 coaches in division 1.  So 6% is quite high.

Vegus has no dog in this hunt.  If they say he's the 4th most likely coach to be fire he probably is.
