Golf is very healthy.
Men's basketball went to SEC Championship game.
Women's soccer last year went deep into NCAA tournament.
Track and cross country are still the track and cross country we know and love from Arkansas.
Men's baseball went to SEC Championship game.

Choosing to remain ignorant and bitch is easy, though.

A very quick and hasty glance looks like he hired men's basketball, women's soccer, and on the cusp of hiring men's track/cross country, not sure who finalized that one. Someone can fact-check me on those though.

I never said the athletic department was a mess. But these same types who bought 10 of the B.MFP t-shirts and now claim he was an awful coach...the homer types, media as well...watch the 180 they do the moment Jeff Long is gone.

100% correct.

This is ridiculous. If he were a pilot that got you safely from point A to point B, would you refuse to give him credit because he didnt build the plane? Why would he replace coaches that don't need to be replaced?

Exactly the train of thought I was on. But I was gonna give Kevin the benefit of the doubt, hoping he was legitimately wondering how many of those coaches Long hired, hah.

Never knew this board was full of clairvoyants.

What is Long really, then?
He spends his evenings in a cemetery performing forbidden Yankee rituals while wearing his ancestor's Union blue Civil War uniform. Word on the street is the ritual involves mixing snow with unsweet tea and unseasoned grits and pouring the mixture over the graves of dead Confederate soldiers.

since you guys want to start with the insults, I already knew the answer to the question. my years on hogville have proven most on here don't know we have other programs. I just wanted to see if you guys would do some research.

it speaks to the fact that the programs he has not had to make the most important decision , who runs it, are doing just fine. I question is hiring ability way beyond football.

his first hire in softball, was atrocious. he may have fixed it with his 2nd. we will see if they keep improving. the made the ncaa's last year.
the jimmy dykes hire, REALLY.  again, he may have fixed it on his 2nd attempt. he went out and got a proven winner, who happens to be from Arkansas, not that, it matters to me
volleyball, to be determined, their coach took over a real dumpster fire. lots of freshman playing this year, with possibly the best player in hog history pilar.
Track, it ended up being the right guy. he got bashed for the hire, the coach has us back to where they belong.
men's basketball-was an easy on for him, mike wanted it, and the fans wanted him. 2 tournaments in 6 years, is not great. hopefully, he will go back to back after this season.
football-has been well documented on here. it has not been his finest performance.

everyone wants to talk about the money he raises. A big time booster once told my dad, anyone can raise money for the university of Arkansas as athletic director.  plus, with the $40 million they get each year from the sec.

his greatest accomplishments in my book is the facility improvement.

I think he snubs his nose at the common fan. he is a camera hog. he loves self promoting. and his statement of not winning at all cost, was the last straw with me. I don't want to cheat (at the level others cheat), and I don't want a bunch of criminals wearing our uniform, but if they are going to spent the money, and constantly ask for more money, then our leader should be saying, we want all of our programs to be in the position to win titles, but we are going to do it in a professional, and abide by the rules way.

My doctor is a pretty crappy doctor all in all, but he built a really nice building for his practice and his staff is really polite.  So, all that said, it doesn't bother me that he prescribed the wrong medication to me that would have killed me had I continued to take it.  I'm smart enough to evaluate his successes outside of medicine.

You have seen it answered 100 times. You think if the question keeps being asked, those that answer will grow tired of answering and you can eventually use the lack of an answer as proof of something. Your troll is weak. You don't even mask it in clever responses.

Wasn't aware a college football coach or athletic director had a direct hand in potentially killing you.

Huh.

P.S. Our football program isn't dead. It's about where it's always been.

http://www.businessinsider.com/schools-most-revenue-college-sports-2016-10/#16-arkansas--1142-million-10

Though written in 2016, U of A has increased the athletic department's revenue by 46.2% over the last five years, which is about 5th highest in the country over that span.

I'd consider that pretty successful for an athletic director whose job encompasses, ya know, more than just HAWG FUHBALL.

Now go ahead and respond with some unoriginal, feeble, and weak attempt at a spin before I put you on ignore so my timeline is no longer cluttered with your utterly sophomoric posts.

It was Jeff Longs' best interest to fire petrino, and the worst thing that ever happened to the ua.
That decision will cost near 200 mil if you figure we already missed one stadium upgrade, and now we may not be able to pay for this one.

Mess that up? Did you not see where I said how much the athletic department's revenue has increased over the last 5 years?

When has our football program been in more shambles than the 5 years prior to 2016, when the article was written?

Despite those years, Long was still able to increase the department's revenue by 46.2%. Call me crazy, but that's pretty damn good.

The job of the AD is NOT to win football games.

Even hiring coaches is only a small percentage of the job.

Fund raising, effective management of resources, NCAA compliance, public relations...  So many things that are far more important to those who make decisions on hiring and firing of ADs.

women's golf currently #1 in the nation
men's golf currently top 20 in the nation

May be true, bit what pays for these programs? Actually, what pays for EVERYTHING? Men's Basketball...? Baseball...? Women's Basketball...? Volleyball...? Gymnastics...? Soccer...? Golf, either men's or women's...? Track, either men's or women's?

Would this board exist if ONLY for those NON-FOOTBALL sports? Guess what.... it's the same no matter where you go... with MAYBE the exception of Kentucky, Duke & North Carolina... possibly Kansas. But I would bet all publicly funded Universities programs need a good football program to be healthy & not put a drain on the Universities they represent.

Bottom line, Football PAYS the bills for ALL sports. Without Football, would the rest of our programs even exist?

Title IX was a remarkable achievement for women and for individual sports.  But yes, the SEC trough fuels everything.  Jeff...2 questions for you?  1) Do you still have total confidence in Coach B?  2)  If you say yes, do you think your bosses(the PTB or Trustees) have total confidence in you?
