Charlie Strong would be the minority

Ummmm.....really?

That is who they will talk to if Taggart turns them down.

So let me get this straight, we waited all this time just to wait on Gus and our people messed this up in a few hours after the game?? Yeah right..lol

It was never going to be Gus. I still think itís Norvellís job to loses Iím fine with a Kiffin. The choice of candidates is way better than the last 2 coaching searches, not even close.

No one can be that stupid...can they?

I sure as heck hope not.  Naming one of those guys head coach will make us the permanent laughing stock of Division 1 football.  We'll be fighting it out for a spot in the bottom 25 every year.

You are correct. Should have let the lady run the show. If they were dead set against her, should have hired Scanlon, Varady or Gragg and let them run with it.

PRJ

Agree. I think that is what they would have preferred to do (Scanlon), but clueless Steinmetz was too emphatic on a sitting AD. Think that is where Gragg came in. Steinmetz never seemed concerned about the non-ideal situation of having two searches going at once like this.

He was offered by some people....when it came to approval..someone threw a fit.

PRJ

So he was offered and said yes to the offer....then when the BOT found out about the offer they rejected it? Asking bc I thought you had mentioned yesterday that both sides were on the same page for Gus only and they offered him $6.3M already? If that was the case how did it all of a sudden change and get rejected? Just wondering for context about what could

I do not know if he said yes. From what I was told, an offer was made, when that offer went up the chain, somebody shot it down. A no go.

In fairness all you have to do is look at someoneís post history to see if they are in the know for real or not. PRJ during this whole firing and hiring scenario we have been going through has to be 95% or above. He has usually been the first to suggest what is going on behind scenes and he has literally been spot on about everything.

10-4....everything happens for a reason, and so just maybe for once this will lead us to be able to hire Kiffin, who I have always felt is the actual best fit tor our program in achieving the highest ceiling here! He would not only win big here, but he would make us relevant nationally, would be fun to watch, and would keep us entertained no matter what! If you arenít winning national championships, the next best thing is to be completely entertained all year long!

Well in a perfect world we would hire the AD from Memphis, the Head Coach from Memphis and pay whatever it takes to make Venebles DC.  In the back of my mind I keep thinking it is not impossible that Venebles is a coach in waiting at Clemson--in the meantime he actually seems to love his present job.

Ive kept this in mind from the beginning. You knew there would be a 0% chance we would just step up and hit a grand slam like a bunch of confident, cocky, badasses.

We would fumble and stumble and argue... until we end up with someone like Jim Grobe. Quintessential Arkansas.
grand slam?  Who would that be?

The odd part is it seems a lot of national media heads like Brett McMurphy have been tweeting ďHuge win today for Georgia and ArkansasĒ....and asking if Gus Christmas tree was on the side of the road yet., etc.....he is very well plugged in and has broken almost every coaching hire this year so far. All of them speculating as if it was already done and he is coming here?

I guess they could all be assuming it was true bc I mean who would botch a deal they have been working on for 2 straight weeks? I know several of them believe if he lost today it was inevitable....

This entire thing reads like a soap opera.  While it's good drama for those that like drama, it's not how successful people operate.  Especially considering they have the same goal in mind, to restore Arkansas to its winning ways.

Gus's agent is also a key piece in the decision making process.  If there are naysayers his agent is definately selling the proposal to them.  Gus is one of their most important clients.

This decision is not made in a vacuum by each individual.

Goes in another direction.....we may very well end up with......



Lane Kiffin.

Hearing all kinds of things about how we may have botched up Gus Malzahn....

Lane Kiffin is definitely in play....but....Jimbo Fisher leaving didn't help us.

Venables is in play....

But we better pray it doesn't slip past Kiffin.

Skip Holtz and Tim Horton. Those names aren't jokes.

Taggert or Fuente to FSU and Kiffin to Arkansas!!!
