I would appreciate him being tarred and feathered and ran to the Oklahoma border on a rail.

I appreciate that he came out and immediately showed his true colors, so that we didn't end up with him long term.   Just think where would be if we got lucky and won 8 or 9 games.

Absolutely the worse coached game I have ever seen.  Had the Tigers on the ropes and wrapped them around our own neck.  Shameful, pitiful and unprofessional.  Unforgivable idiocy.

The bankrupt bum can't get his ass out of Fayetteville fast enough. Paul "THE SORRY EXCUSE FOR A DEFENSIVE CORDINATOR" Haynes can't get his sorry tail out fast enough. Hell throw Klenaikes in with these bums.

PISS POOR COACHING ALL YEAR!

Better options at the High school level in Arkansas than these clowns.

I want to thank him for our best win of the year, at home against Tulsa, and at least not losing to Auburn and Kentucky.  What am I talking about, winning is not important, integrity is.  I want to thank him for being a good ambassador of the program and not acting like he is mentally challenged at every opportunity.  Oh wait...

He was here to get a paycheck he could not get at Wee-burr State...that could also be deferred until bankruptcy was final.  All the "I'm here to help the kids" is BD. He's a loser in the 1st degree...no wonder BP learned so much from him. Good riddance crazy old fart!

He was colorful indeed. He added a special thing when he spoke to the media. I think I will miss that. He lightened things up a little during our losses and made me laugh allot. Smile dammit.

   Get his ass out of Arkansas as I post these words  -  ask Michigan State what
a BAD COACH THAT HE WAS -  I cannot believe that Jeff Long would hire this
"SLAPPY THE CLOWN"  and to pay him $800,000.  If Jeff Long hired this loser,
do you really think that he can hire a top tier coach?  Again as i say Bobby Petrino could have been counseled not fired to save the season = now we have the cause and the effect.

How in the world anyone could look at his hiring as a positive is beyond me, but to hear the goobers on DTS after he was announced, you'd swear that we had just hired the modern-day Paul Bryant.

That was my worst fear from the day he was hired.  Anyone who honestly believed he was anything resembling HC material after the debacle he was the maestro of at Michigan State was kidding themselves in the most unimaginable way.

the single event I'll remember most is John L. having Tyler out there throwing and warming up intently just before the Alabama game kick-off...then Tyler made that last throw right before we were to receive the kick-off and John L. stepped out there and 'high-fived' Tyler as though John L. had just 'brain-banged' Nick Saban....John L. had a stupid and satisfied look on his face as though he had just pulled the wool over Saban's eyes by starting Brandon Allen...well Bama's 52 points later and our 0 points only proves just how infantile John L.'s thought processes really are....God that's embarrassing when I think about it.  John L. actually believed the DARK LORD of Tuscaloosa missed his curve ball.
