You must not remember his time at Ole Miss with the Murray St Mafia.  He was taunting our players in one game while acting like a buffoon.  No Thanks.

Why are some of you obsessed with filling his staff for him? And why does it always have to be some recycled Razorback twice removed?

I see everyone scrambling on twitter begging him to keep Lunney.  Who cares?

It's his staff. His job depends on winning. Not ours.

I am eager to see who he does hire but I am not gonna spend countless hours researching who he should.

This is a tough one.  Dude is a hog and gave everything he could give to this program.  Hitched his wagons to Nuttsack and get carried away with a few things.  That stunt he pulled at LSU still irks me to this day.  I guess is CCM thought he was good enough to help and make this a better program and team I would buy into it.

No one and I mean no one with connections to Houston Nutt should be allowed any where near the University of Arkansas.  With the stuff they pulled and acted here and their actions while at Ole Miss. That group of classes hacks should be blacklisted.
