Title: Guess who reads Hogville?
Post by: hawgon on November 07, 2017, 01:46:50 pm
Jeffry Augustus Long that’s who.  After my post a few hours ago noting that Long had not tweeted anything at all since October 20th, he went on a Twitter retweet frenzy this morning.

Duh.   Half the posters here are his minions.

And Good Job.  You should print it all out and mail copies to our big boosters.

What it actually most likely means is the damn thing is done.  Bert going, Jeff staying.  I'd say I'm 90% certain of that. 

1.  Because of the flurry of twitter activity which is occurring for the first time since the Auburn game.  That beat down started the discussion/debate in the inner sanctums.

2.  Too many of the guys on here with possibly legitimate sources basically saying the same thing. 

3.  Only ? is who is the guy.  I'd say there is 50/50 chance that's decided as well and as part of Long staying and everyone getting back on the same page may have been Long laying out a replacement plan.  Another good reason to stay silent.

I don't think Jeff reads message boards, but he has a staff that keeps him informed on how the media and fans view him and the program.  I'd guess they told him his approval rating on Hogville sucks.

I am not so sure that 'him' is incorrect in this case. He could have typed, "so much smarter than he is.

It is a nominative versus object case situation.

Nothing wrong with ending a sentence with a preposition anymore.

*edit* just saw a post lamenting evaporation of grammar. This ^ isn't an example of that, in fact it's the opposite, it makes perfect grammatical sense.

Retweets. Soccer, volleyball, etc. Plus one about Ragnow nominated for Witten man of the year award.

When I was working in the media I posted something on here just before I went to cover a Hogs basketball game.  20 minutes later, I'm walking into the Bud and one of the S.I.D.s stops me and says, "where did you get that information from?"

I don't remember what it was that I had posted, but it had just been a joke I was making.  I told him that it was just a joke...I'm not sure he believed me.  However, I did find it funny that Hogville/my post were being monitored that closely.

hahah, mine too. I mean, we don't have the discretionary income to drink Cakebread every night.

Hooray for purchasing wine in bags in boxes by the (3) liter!

When I was working in the media I posted something on here just before I went to cover a Hogs basketball game.  20 minutes later, I'm walking into the Bud and one of the S.I.D.s stops me and says, "where did you get that information from?"

I don't remember what it was that I had posted, but it had just been a joke I was making.  I told him that it was just a joke...I'm not sure he believed me.  However, I did find it funny that Hogville/my post were being monitored that closely.

College sports is a BILLION dollar industry.  LOL Welcome to the real world.  If any people think that it it is crazy to think Jeff Long has multiple minions on here... THEY are crazy.   Of course he does.   So did Frank.  And if you can't see that Long owns pretty much ALL of the media in Arkansas, you are a blind fool.

In this day and age it's not a bit far fetched to think that S.I.D's and the like keep an eye on social media of all kinds.

Keep an eye?  NO!  Trying to control media dates back as far as media itself.  Social media is no different.  But, my God, how can the people who do that job live with themselves?    How, Hogsanity?

I spent my adult lifetime in criminal courthouses.  What I know is that most people are vicious animals.   We people with empathy tend to think that psychopaths are abnormal.  That is wrong.  They're normal.  We are rare.

Maybe.  Or maybe we, as a species, are slowly evolving from vicious animals - the greatest predator to ever walk the Earth - into something better, and we just live in an age of transition - from vicious predator, into.. Shepherds of the Earth.

Or... Maybe its just the Absynthe.

But this I KNOW, and you seem to know it too:   Most humans are psychopaths.

THEY are crazy.   Of course he does.   So did Frank.  And if you can't see that Long owns pretty much ALL of the media in Arkansas, you are a blind fool.

 

A few years ago there were several people in the BAC that were checking hogville regularly. 

You are right, it is the smart thing to do.

Long may have some folks on here, but they are not in power.  Long does not control the media.  He strong arms the media some times, but he doesn't own it or control it.

When Long first got here, he was an idiot and tried to shut out any media that didn't agree with him. (Me for example)  Then after getting rid of the main S.I.D. (ZH) Long started doing what professional teams do.  They play up to the media.  The spoil them.  They go out of their way to make them happy.  The reason they do this (professional teams and college teams that act professional) is to make it difficult for you to say anything bad about them.

One of the reasons I got into media was because I couldn't stand how our local media bowed down to Nutt.  I wanted to get in there and ask the tough questions. 

After a few years of being around our local media I get it.  They are generally, genuinely nice guys (and gals...looking at you Ms. Orange). 

I REALLY like Bret.  I think he is a good man and I love how he goes out of his way to help the media.  I think he has done a lot of good things while here at Arkansas.  I was one of the last to come around because I have gotten to know him and I wanted so bad for him to succeed.  I've only been gone for a couple of years, but I would have been one of those Arkansas media types that went soft on Bret (like others did for HdN) because you really do want them to succeed.  However, Bret is 100x the man that HdN is.

Still, my point is this:  It is always easy to say "Well, if I was in that media room I would..."

And...like I did...you WOULD do that for a time.  Then you become a professional instead of someone just trying to get a "gotcha" question in there.

I promise you, knowing the guys (and gals...what up Alyssa!) in that room they understand it is time for Bret to go.  They just don't want to beat him over the head on the way out. 

Long on the other hand...

1.  As always, you sound like you know what you're talking about.
2.  Does anyone NOT like Bret B?  Just because I can see that BB thought he could coach and Barry Alvarez didn't have the heart to tell him he didn't know his ass from a crater - doesn't mean I don't love the man.   If Jeff Long hired me tomorrow, I'm sure that BB would soon no longer be the absolute worst coach in history, because I would be.   There's no sin here... it just freaking sucks, all around.

oh yeah...

3. I never lie, but you would not believe the stories of corruption I can tell you about the Texas Courthouses.   Just .. beyond belief.    I don't know, but I will NEVER believe that the AD is not doing ALL it can to manipulate public opinion, including having dozens of accounts on Hogville, and I would bet a LOT that I can name several.  Compared to what I've seen, that is just shlts and giggles.  Not even bloody.  OF course they are doing it!   Its a BILLION dollar industry built on the backs of unpaid "students."

But then again, who knows?   I try to wipe out the ____   I've seen with as much Green Fairy as I can swallow.  Maybe some day I'll succeed.

I don't think Jeff reads message boards, but he has a staff that keeps him informed on how the media and fans view him and the program.  I'd guess they told him his approval rating on Hogville sucks.

I'd take that job in a heartbeat. Easy, straightforward, good pay, and I get to rile up people like you all day? Sign me up.
