Bleh.  That would be one of the most uninspired hires possible.  Better him than Leach though.
If he is hired, though, I will get behind him.

No way we pay 6 million to buy him out.  That would be the biggest waste of time and money, ever.

Mike Irwin said tonight that TT said he would take the job in a heartbeat..............

He just couldn't afford the 6 million buyout

Mike also said that they are looking for a way around it with a loop hold

I have my preferences for a new head coach, but just like with HDN I will back the new guy until he proves that he cannot get it done. We will have a good idea in 3 years, and if he hasn't convinced us in he needs to be gone and we go to the next one.

Tommy Tuberville is the best available coach being mentioned outside of Butch Davis.  He absolutely would be worth the 6 million dollar buyout.

I think it's exciting news, IF true, that TT may be the frontrunner.  :)  :razorback:

He's just about the only one being mentioned who has proven he can win in the SEC but also has enough ties to recruit Arkansas (which he has already been doing, unfortunately). I hope it's true.

I would rather have Kiffen with Ed as a cordinator than TT. But since everyone else looks pretty worthless, I would take TT, only if there is a way around the buy-out!!!!

Loop Hold, that's a new one on me.

I could see TT going to Auburn and saying I've done just about all I can do here and would like to move on and try to negotiate a lesser amount.  Now Auburn's administration is probably smart enough to not let him go to a divisional rival.  I'm just guessing that they are that intelligent since our guys obviously aren't.

I'd rather have Kiffin or Peterson before Tubberville.

What has Kiffin done on his own?  Oh wait, hasn't been on his own except the 3 win Oakland Raiders, but that's a totally different ball game. So rule him out. We need someone established.

As for Chris Peterson, I don't think his style of offense will last in the SEC. Plus, what about his defense? I haven't seen the numbers or watched them much this year, but when I do catch a score of a game it's like 48-42. Gotta have a solid defense, especially in the SEC.

No Butch talk.  Everything that I hear and read says that he is out of the picture.  Hell, the NC boards arent even talking about the possibility of him leaving.

KIFFIN COACHES THE FREAKIN RAIDERS PEOPLE.  THE RAIDERS!!!  Do you really think that he would come right out and dominate the AFC West.   Davis, good coach, bad NFL coach.   Steve, same thing.  He has won 3 more games than people thought he would.

If he is hired, though, I will get behind him.
Maybe you should go and look at what he has done at Auburn after Bowden sunk it.

anyone who says TT would be a waste of money is not very smart. look at his record against the big dogs. he wins the big ones...AKA the ones HDN lost. he is also a coach that does well on the road in the SEC.

I just got a phone call about this as well.  So the rumbling rumor goes.  I guess they've got the money to spend, hmmm?

Guess I'll have to quit calling him Blubberville.

TT will always be a good hire.  he has good assistants.  He recruits well and he can fit the type of system that fits Arkansas whether some like it or not. 
His road record in the SEC is jaw dropping and you hardly ever see his teams blown out.

If we can pay $3.5 million so HDN can "feel better inside" about resigning, couldn't we pay 6 mil to get the best coach on our list?  Just my opinion.

TT seems like an older HDN, who likes to run. I hope he has a NC under his belt. Does he? If so...well, ok but forget the creativity as Nutt seemed to have it over him in that dept. and that's not a good thought. I'm in my 50s and I know it's the young ones like Gus who can recruit and who don't think it can't be done that way in the SEC, etc.
