Post by: forrest city joe on November 10, 2017, 03:46:58 pm
A caller called in and said he had heard a rumor that if the Hogs get blown out by Lsu,coach B could be fired on Sunday.he ask Bo had he heard anything about that.and i was shocked to hear Bo say that he will not rule out anything.he said he does not like to deal in rumors.but he did not rule this out. will coach B be fired if the Hogs get blown out against LSU.and who would be the  interim coach for the last 2 games?will it be Rhodes or Enos?

I wouldn't rule it out either. Toss-up on interim coach.

I am not a big fan of firing a coach before the end of the season. But, if that were to happen, it means we already have our next man.

Im trying to get it going where we fire him after LSU and then have a player appreciation game with MSU.  That way fans can pack the stadium and not worry about BB.  Just have everyone show up and show the team that the fans are behind them knowing a new guy will coach them next year.

I donít know, but if the events of the last few days mean what a lot of us think they do, then yeah, I can absolutely see that happening.  The main reason we wouldnít go ahead and fire him was apparently completely on Long.  If Long is more or less out of the picture, then others are in control and they will probably want to pull the trigger.  We gain nothing by waiting. 

Henry Kissinger once said something to the effect of, ďWhat must be done inevitably, should be done immediately.Ē

 "he will not rule out anything, he said he does not like to deal in rumors.but he did not rule this out"

Classic radio personality stance on this issue.  He is going to make sure he gains listeners to his show, podcast, and increases the popularity of the overall radio network.
He is not going to discount anything at this point.  More talk is what he is after. . . he is a radio TALK show host after all.

FWIW, I do not discredit him for this stance either.

doesn't matter, wont change anything.  he is gone, Long will let him finish the season, because there is no reason not to.  than we will hire a coach between the last game and signing day.

the only reason Long would fire him mid season would be for a fire-able offense like the Petrino situation.

lol, that's not how it works. 

regardless, CBB will be gone at the end of the season, and we will have a new coach next year.  Long will still be here.

the only think left is to wait, and watch the last few games of the year.
Title: Re: Listening to Bo's show. could this be true?
Post by: Mike_e on November 10, 2017, 04:17:59 pm
The only reason to fire him early at this point is to give the OC and/or DC a chance to show their stuff.

If it's Enos then we'd see him with the gloves off.  If it's Rhodes then we'd see a firebrand on the sidelines and what the kids could do with some enthusiasm.

Either way it lets the guys get an on the field interview which they are owed, and also (hopefully) keeps another johnelle moment from happening where everybody just gives up.

It seems like the urgency to see Bert fired yesterday is rooted in the fear that he won't be fired. 

I think he's a dead man walking, I have no fear that he will be gone after the season is over.

We just have to endure 3 more games of BertBall

70k arent showing up to watch Nick Fitzgerald run all over us just because we have an interim coach.

I highly doubt firing right now has any impact on attendance.

That's my thinking. If it was going to happen why wait this long? Auburn would've been the time to do that. We are basically now at the very end of the year...2 more games after LSU may as well finish it out.

you pay a bigger buyout (granted not much)recruits still have no idea who the coach is because no current coach will say publicly they are coming until their season is over, and other schools will try and get your best recruits on official visits while they still have games left.  I want him gone but be patient. After almost 6 years 2 weeks is nothing.

I want to beat LSU worse than anyone left on our schedule but I think if we win it makes it worse for Bielema.

1.  You barely beat a bottom tier sunbelt team but you turn around and beat LSU?  That's not a good thing.

2. Bielema has become increasingly chippy with the media lately.  We win and you better believe that Bielema is going to have some hot takes.  He might pull out his cellphone and have Toby Keith "How do you like me now?' blaring when he walks into the press conference.

I'm just ready for it to be over.  I would love to have one coach dismissal/firing/departure to be free of drama.

I suspect that would be a cathartic moment for all fans of the program both in the stadium & around the world. Iím not beholden to any coach or AD...especially these two guys who donít seem to get it yet. They have had 5 yrs to show us something to grasp onto for hope. They failed. Itís been like Groundhogs Day ever since CBB arrived. Meltdowns during games, excuses, deflection of blame, scapegoating others, propaganda, sacrificing assistants, playing favorites whilst not playing the guys who are game changers until Bert is forced to by happenstance...then taking credit ala HDN when a guy like TJ Hammonds finally gets the rock.
Time for change my friends. Yes it can be scary, but often good things come out of that change. I know that I have dealt with some changes in my personal life this year that were not fun to go through to put it lightly, but I used the pain as motivation & a year on I have good things in the works. I am a stronger, wiser man for having gone through those sh*t storms. Nuttin but love yíall <3

It's only 2 more weeks, firing a coach during the season does nothing but scare potential candidates off.  Let him finish the season with some dignity and it show that we gave him every opportunity to succeed. 

He won't win another game, but he was given a chance.

Haven't read thread but three things come to mind:

1. FCJ - here to promote MA by bashing BB
2. Rumor - from a CALLER
3. Bo had the fence post exactly where it always is

I've never been more disgusted in Hog "fans."

Hey, in case it matters, our guys have a GAME in 15.5 hours. Get on board or get off message boards!

Wow. So you really think the only reason people didn't go to last game was the coach? And people will pack the MSU game if he's fired?
it's the worst Razorback product in over 20 years. That's why.

It's only 2 more weeks, firing a coach during the season does nothing but scare potential candidates off.  Let him finish the season with some dignity and it show that we gave him every opportunity to succeed. 

He won't win another game, but he was given a chance.

Unless you have a bigger one in store....remember how the Petrino deal went.

The reasoning of not firing him now is his contract states he cannot be fired during a season.This would cause a buyout of the full 15 million dollars instead of firing him at the end of the season....but the way it looks is that he only has 15 more days of employment at Arkansas.

It seems like the urgency to see Bert fired yesterday is rooted in the fear that he won't be fired. 

I think he's a dead man walking, I have no fear that he will be gone after the season is over.

We just have to endure 3 more games of BertBall
Yes, you nailed it. As much as I would like to see the Hogs beat LSU, the thought of BB returning next year is a very depressing one.

I do feel sorry for the man and hope he moves on to find a position where he will be happy because I, as most, really can't take another year of this.

I donít know, but if the events of the last few days mean what a lot of us think they do, then yeah, I can absolutely see that happening.  The main reason we wouldnít go ahead and fire him was apparently completely on Long.  If Long is more or less out of the picture, then others are in control and they will probably want to pull the trigger.  We gain nothing by waiting. 

Henry Kissinger once said something to the effect of, ďWhat must be done inevitably, should be done immediately.Ē

Me thinks the chancellor will be the decision maker with BB.  And I could certainly see him pulling the trigger sooner rather than later to keep himself from being drawn in any deeper into the mess than he already is. 

And especially if it's an embarrassing loss.

What worries me more is the case that if we win out, he gets to stay.
I can not and will not root against the hogs.

Surely, the descision has been made as some have assured that out has.

You only have to worry about that if we win tomorrow

Haven't read thread but three things come to mind:

1. FCJ - here to promote MA by bashing BB
2. Rumor - from a CALLER
3. Bo had the fence post exactly where it always is

I've never been more disgusted in Hog "fans."

Hey, in case it matters, our guys have a GAME in 15.5 hours. Get on board or get off message boards!

Mike Anderson does not need promotion. Any Arkansan that thinks Arkansas can do better than Mike is a rank fool.

No he may not fire him during the season, but he may make the announcement that he won't be retained for the 2018 season.

You're screwing up eating there for catfish. Though I would say they used to have prime rib on Thursdays that was pretty good but Danny left and it hasn't been the same since.

Gives fans hope for the future and a reason to attend the last two games in support of the players. A win win for all

If people want to go support the players they can whether he is fired or not. Do you think the administration of the University will look at the stands full of people and think "Hey Bielema's doing great"

How could anyone expect anything other than a "blowout"?  Especially when you consider how we've performed against common opponents.

I'm looking forward to my trip to the Mississippi State game, with or without Bret.

I keep wondering if firing him before the season ends is a more important "take THAT" from the angry fans (me included), than it would be strategic. If there's a good reason to do itóother than our satisfactionólet 'er rip!

Then how about the question, what would attendance be for MSU with or without BB?

I'd say 30K with him, 70K w/out him.

Every game is going to be at least -4 with Bielema still here and +4 with him out of here. I've seen my last game with him as the coach and will be at the first one he isn't. I don't think my family is the only one feeling this way.

Well if it's $15 million now vs. $5 million come November 25th, Long will wait, as he should.

Surely all of us on this board can find the patience to wait two weeks for the end result we want.

A caller called in and said he had heard a rumor that if the Hogs get blown out by Lsu,coach B could be fired on Sunday.he ask Bo had he heard anything about that.and i was shocked to hear Bo say that he will not rule out anything.he said he does not like to deal in rumors.but he did not rule this out. will coach B be fired if the Hogs get blown out against LSU.and who would be the  interim coach for the last 2 games?will it be Rhodes or Enos?

Good grief.  Any conversation that begins "caller heard a rumor" is a conversation not worth listening too.
