Title: Bazzel as AD?
Post by: HungryHog on October 05, 2017, 04:03:49 pm
This will probably get slammed because of the pounding the show with no name gets on here, but I heard it brought up once on the radio, but never here or anywhere else since, so I thought I would throw it into the furnace of Hogville.

What about cleaning house - remove Jeff Long and CBB.  Hire David Bazzel as AD.  With the Broyles award he has tons of connections for advice on rising coaching talent.  He has his hands in a million things - all Razorback related.  The man loves the Hogs.  He has good relationships with current donors.

I am tired of Uncommon, NeverYield, and GPA.  I want to win.  I want someone leading the Razorbacks that wants to win.  I think Bazzel brings a great attitude and identity for our program.

What am I missing here?  I hate that every thread on here just gets trashed now, but it's where we are..  How bad of an idea is this?

I'll hang up and listen.

No doubt he would be better than Jeff Long and Bielema would be a better coach with an AD like Bazzel. Bielema did well at Wisconsin because Barry Alvarez kept a foot on his rear, whereas Jeff Long pats Bielema on the rear.

I think his passion for the Hogs and his connections would be outstanding attributes.  I just don't think you turn the keys over to somebody without that kind of experience.  I wish there was somebody with those same attributes that had some upper level collegiate administration experience.  This is a different animal in today's world than when former coaches would move on up the ladder and take the AD spot upon retirement.  The complexities of the business aspect would make it a tough transition, even with the best resources.  As much as we hate to admit it, this thing is a business and to do all the things we want (great facilities, recruit nationwide, etc.) you have to have a pretty sharp business acumen, as well as be very much in touch athletically (especially with football, the cash cow).

I am tired of Uncommon, NeverYield, and GPA.  I want to win.  I want someone leading the Razorbacks that wants to win.  I think Bazzel brings a great attitude and identity for our program.

4. Shall I continue?

I’m assuming you are referring to firing Petrino?  Otherwise I’m not sure what “raising credibility by doing the right thing” is.

Is it:
1) Helping BP circumvent the 30 waiting period to interview and hire Jessica Dorrell?
- Not saying BP isn’t at fault but Long requested the Office of the EOC wave the waiting period because and I quote Jeffie here, “We feel that flexibility is necessary.”
- Jeffie may have not known that BP was hiring his side-ho but he bent the rules because Petrino told him to.  That’s just straight up shows you being Jeffie was BP’s little biotch.
2) Hiring JLS knowingly that he was bankrupt?
- Would love to see if they even ran any medical tests cause hell the man was pure nuts.  Getting his “piss hot”, “smile”, and forgetting that he wasn’t the coach of Alabama didn’t exactly lend us credibility.
3) Hiring Anderson?
- We were scared to hire another caucasian, that’s doing the right thing fo sho.
4) Hiring Bielema based on a love letter?
- Wisconsin has had no issue kicking tail since Bielema left.  We have been a revolving door for assistants and coordinators.  Jeffie was over the moon riding the #integrity train and didn’t do his homework.
5) Increasing the buyout for the coach with the worst SEC record?
- This one just made us look plain stupid.  Jeffie took a gamble and it didn’t work.  Not credible.
6) Hiring Jimmy Dykes?
- Do I even have to type more here?  Celebrity hire, I like Dykes but he was in no shape or form qualified to run an NCAA program.
7) Shall I continue?

I look forward to your reply with actual evidence or statement at least instead of just repeating the word credible multiple times.

All this is part of it but it's also trying to hire 1) Tommy Bowden and 2) the wake forest coach, Jim Grobe? I think.  It's hard to trust him to hire the next one. And let's be honest, the most important job of an AD is hiring and firing the head football coach.

the number looks big, but the only real change in his contract was the extension and raise which was worked into the buy out.  CBB went from 3.2 mill to 3.85 mill x 4 years which is approximately a 20% raise.

now a 20% raise for winning 2 conference games in 2 years is a bit...well...excessive IMO.

I mean surely their were performance goals that one should meet in order to be eligible for a raise.  does that mean CBB exceeded Longs expectations by winning 2 conference games?

This will probably get slammed because of the pounding the show with no name gets on here, but I heard it brought up once on the radio, but never here or anywhere else since, so I thought I would throw it into the furnace of Hogville.

What about cleaning house - remove Jeff Long and CBB.  Hire David Bazzel as AD.  With the Broyles award he has tons of connections for advice on rising coaching talent.  He has his hands in a million things - all Razorback related.  The man loves the Hogs.  He has good relationships with current donors.

I am tired of Uncommon, NeverYield, and GPA.  I want to win.  I want someone leading the Razorbacks that wants to win.  I think Bazzel brings a great attitude and identity for our program.

What am I missing here?  I hate that every thread on here just gets trashed now, but it's where we are..  How bad of an idea is this?

I'll hang up and listen.

I wouldn't hire Bazzel to be an elementary geography teacher despite his trophy designing prowess so I'll also pass on him being an AD.

He didn't design the trophies. He was just the "front man" for the groups putting them together to try and "force feed" us a rivalry game.

Maybe so but do you know him well enough to say that? I don't. Like others he didn't grow up here and came here to play football at the UA. He's from Florida.

 But without doing research you cannot assume the negative either. Using his radio gig as evidence that he is a bad choice is just as silly as saying he's a former hog makes him a good choice.

Uhh.....okay Einstein please point out/quote where I said his radio gig (or any other particular employment) automatically disqualifies him as a candidate? What I AM saying is that while he may have organized such things as the Broyles Award, it most certainly DOES NOT necessarily prove he can handle the ENTIRE responsibilities of an AD. As you may know that includes hiring/firing coaches, drumming up support of the Athletic Department, setting budgets, working closely with the Board of Trustees, making certain staff and personnel decisions above and beyond just the hiring/firing of coaches, developing and promoting the program(s)with other national sources, actively raising monies for the program, etc.

Could he do the job: heck, I don't know. Perhaps he indeed has a talent for all of the above. However, just because he's done some nice things for the program, including the Broyles Award and playing football for the Hogs, most definitely DOES NOT automatically qualify to offer and upgrade for Long or anyone else.

Sounds like FAsS and V8 need to get a room.

If we do that I'd really want Iron Mike Irwin as head coach. I bet he'd put an end to the jelly sandwich nonsense and toughen up the team.

 I wish I had perused a little farther before commenting. You just blew this thang up in the first page...

Pillowhead is just a rebound that won't go away... He's waiting on the return of OTR

Well if he/she/it is truly on the rebound I totally understand why one wouldn't want to become involved. Too many raw emotions when one is having "that time of the month" (or in this case a year).

But without doing research you cannot assume the negative either. Using his radio gig as evidence that he is a bad choice is just as silly as saying he's a former hog makes him a good choice. I would believe anyone who can champion something like The Frank Broyles Award and create it from the ether has got to have some business management skills...

Heck a LOT of people have business management skills. That doesn't make them qualified to run a multi, multi million dollar athletic business. Especially with no prior experience in athletic administration.

Could he do the job: heck, I don't know. Perhaps he indeed has a talent for all of the above. However, just because he's done some nice things for the program, including the Broyles Award and playing football for the Hogs, most definitely DOES NOT automatically qualify to offer and upgrade for Long or anyone else.

He might not be qualified as AD, but his public relations and ability at promotions might work in either the ADs office or the Razorback Foundation?

I could most definitely envision him with some type of PR job with the Hogs; RF would be a possibility as well.

I don't think he's looking for a job.......

Naw, he will just go to the middle of the field, they will turn on both scoreboards bright red and have an assistant turn him while he's standing on a lazy susan with both arms stretched out.
