He would be a great replacement for BB. He knows how to compete in SEC.

I'd prefer that we go a different direction, rather than bringing back Malzahn. I know that Nutt and his MSM were giving Malzahn hell when he came to Arkansas, but he recruited and signed 5 players from his Springdale team for the UofA and then left them here with Nutt(less) when he decided to leave, rather than share the OC title with an idiot who thought ladders and cinder blocks were football training equipment. His (in my eyes) deserting his players soured me on Malzahn and I'm still not over it. I never root for his Auburn team and wish that they would lose each and every game.

He was very divisive among boosters and upper echelon people around the program. 

Gus is getting top talent and still having aubbie fans talking about him being on the hot seat.  He's not a program builder or able to sustain, he flutters when good things fall in his lap. 

Arkansas will look in another direction

Ok. Thanks.  I just never heard about the divisiveness among big boosters.  As far as the Gus bus coming to Arkansas, he is in fertile recruiting grounds and is still not exactly setting the world on fire, so I think we should look elsewhere.

There's not.  Except for folks who still hold Nutt's coin purse.  There are still folks here who question Mike Irwin when he opines on the matter.  And there is ZERO folks closer to the situation than him on this site.

And?

He is competing for a sec title. And has the pick of recruits in the southeast. You canít do that when your university is more in tune with Manhattan, Kansas or Des Moines, Iowa.

If Nutt would have swallowed his pride and let Gus do his thing, we would have probably won the SEC in either 2006 or 2007. Nutt would have continued as coach or he could have retired at the peak in 2007 and became AD, and let Gus takeover.

However, he couldn't get out of his own way.

There is the way he did the Springdale 5 plus the way he left Arkansas State. Telling everyone he was going to build them up into the Boise State of the South then letting them know he was gone while already on the Auburn jet. And if I remember correctly at his press conference at Auburn he made the statement that he was coming "home". They can keep him, he would definitely be an upgrade on what we currently have but he is as sleazy as the day is long. Wouldn't be worth being associated with that for an extra win or two a year.

Gus won't leave allbarn for one main reason: he is getting the best players money can buy there (and that won't happen at Arkansas).

I'm all for Gus if he wants to come back to Arkansas. Gus runs a physical upfront offense and would utilize TJ Hammonds, Hayden and Whaley ( If he does not transfer, wouldn't be a big issue if he did). Arkansas would be a 8-9 win team next season if we could get Gus from Auburn.

If Gus wants the job it is his for the taking if he just writes Long a letter praising his integrity. Arkansas is the greatest coaching job in America. Where else do you have a guaranteed 6 year gig protected by a massive buyout and are praised for being ahead of schedule with a 6 win season?

I find the Gus style of play more enjoyable to watch.  He's built a power running team from spread formations. Also he has somewhat ditched the HUNH since that style puts too much pressure on your defense.  I also, like how Gus will adjust his philosophy to his players.  Something CBB can't seem to grasp.  He started at Auburn the same year CBB started at Arkansas, and nothing is more of a sign of how both coaches have built or maintained their programs than last year's game..Auburn 56-3 (and possibly) this year's game. 

Gus overall 40-19 SEC 21-14 -- CBB overall  27-29 SEC 10-24. 

Gus is winning in the SEC -- CBB isn't!   

I'll take anyone (aside from Briles) that can win games in the SEC.

This!! One of the most mediocre coaches I have ever seen. He has consistently under performed with top talent.   He is the passing coach version of Houston Nutt.

He went elsewhere and wound up at AU where he then is supposed to win witch includes us. Someone pleas fill me in on what I missed.

Didn't like his shenanigans while he was here, but we could do worse.

He could go 9-3 at auburn and be on the hot seat there and be looking for a golden parachute.  To me he'd be kinda like Mike Anderson.  He'd have moderate success here.

Anyone who is hired to replace Bielema is going to be a divisive hire, it could be Saban or Belichek and half the fans would complain about.
We didn't know it at the time but Malzahn should have been hired instead of Bielema, but that ship has sailed and don't think Malzahn would take the job if offered.

Okay, you can't have it both ways.... as many on here have said on her that one of Bielema's issues is that he does have and isn't concerned about job security............ so, according to you, a coach is dammed if he does and dammed if he doesn't.....??

No.  I'm saying he could wins 8-9 games there this year and be told that he has to do better the next year or else.  He might want to come over to low expectations land where he'll be given 4 years of job security.

Gus hung a billboard of himself in Jonesboro?  I think you need to check your facts on that.

Anybody who uses his one year stint at ASU-J and then jumping into the SEC for a huge raise, and the opportunity to coach in the SEC instead of the Sunbelt needs to check their meds.
