New Rumor about Butch Davis
« on: November 08, 2005, 01:25:48 pm »

On the Huddle today, it was said that Florida State has been talking about letting their Coach go at the end of this season. Butch Davis' name has come up in their local media as the favorite. He knows the recruiting area..........Why would he not go ? Why stay here and take the chance of NOT getting the Arkansas job..................Unfortionitly this could pan out...............

Davis will not coach UA. That was determined a while ago. Let's just shift our focus on to whether next years talent will be good enough to over ride bad coaching.

how bout this scenario:  Fb retires after next season ( cause I keep hearing that Nutt will be the coach next year, with The springdale coach Mahlzahn coming in as an assitant) This allows the ua board to keep nutt & not have to pay off his contract, make him the ad & put Malzahn is as HC......before you laugh that he has no college experience..just remember, Jimmy Johnson had no pro experience when he took over Dallas & it didn't take long for his system to prove itsself.......I think that there are those rare people who have something special & Malzahn may be that guy....

Malzahn is a great coach, but he has never recruited, never had the make sure players are going to class, etc, etc.  I don't think he will be ready in two years to take over a D-1 program.  I am all for him coming on next year as QB coach or WR coach, then in a couple of years being named OC, but don't see him being HC anytime soon

The REAL rumor is that wherever Butch goes he's taking Gus and Mitch with him.
I have no idea if there is any truth to it but I wouldn't want to be Frank or big Jim if it happens.

I don't know who I would pick. My point is that Davis is no better than Houston; its a lateral move. Hey, if they hire Butch and he turns the program around, then great. I'll jump on the bandwagon.

No problem Hillbilly, just trying to figure out what you wanted me to respond to.  That makes no sense.  Davis is a great coach, and if it works out I would love to have him as coach, but there are other possibilities if we don't get him

Davis is a huge improvement over Houston.  He knows how to win on a major D-1 level, and has NFL experience as an assistant, Coordinator, and HC.  He brings instant credibility for recruiting b/c he knows what it takes to make it in the NFl.

Not to mention that he MIGHT be able to pull some of the D-1 recruits out of Florida with some of the ties he still has down there..............Something we have never been able to do here at Arkansas..........

If this scenario plays out, I'd say the bright outlook for the future just went away.  Not only would we lose an awesome in-state QB, but an awesome in-state coach that IS headed to the next level.  I would then be totally assured that we have a bunch of dip-schits making the calls on the Hill.  Not only that, but I would DEFINITELY not go to any more games or even waste an afternoon (evening) watching them get beat again on tv.

I do want what is best for the program, Hillbilly. But that doesn't mean I have to agree with you. If we lose out on Butch while Houston gets his 2 years to stink up the place, it won't be the end of the world. 8) :razorback:

Don't dismiss anyone because of bad NFL experience.  I don't know if BD is 'the man' or not, but don't base it on NFL experience alone.

Whether he failed in Cleveland or not I would settle for him just getting us up to where he took Miami. We can worry about him getting us to NFL level later.

It's a crap shoot if you ask me.  Just got to get lucky and find the special one.  I'm no coach expert but I'm also not freaking out over the prospect of Butch Davis.  Remember we already tried a HC that won a NC.  REMEMBER?
