Irwin is always the last to get on the "get rid of this coach" wagon...I remember him defending Pelphrey until he was blue in the face when he was on the radio in the afternoon....let's all have a good bleed, right, Mike ?

Not recruiting Texas enough
Not recruiting lineman
Horrible record
Crappy staff hires
I’m sure there’s more...

What has he done to earn year 6? A Texas bowl win. ? The guy can’t get it done here how much must longer must we wAtch this?

No so sure about that. It's obvious he isn't posting as much. He has pushed the same ideas on TV recently that he disagreed with me on in this forum so maybe he is coming around.

I listen to Bo and Grants show on lunch break and seems like mixed signals from the media recently. After the USCeast game, seemed like everyone , including local media, was disgusted and didn't think things could be turned around.As of late, it seems the talking heads have been rallying around the injury claim...However, after DR. Heim laid out his case today, all BO could say was he couldn't disagree with anything he had said. I guess the situation is "fluid".....😁

He was on here about a week ago saying that Bielema would be back because he hadn't received the "talk" from Long saying that he had to make changes or else he's fired. Every indication is that "talk" already happened after the Virginia Tech debacle last season.

We're a bad team - so of course most teams are better than us and we're losing to them.
That's the point - WE ARE BAD.

So we need to find a coach who can field a team that's not so bad.
A team that's better prepared, better coached, mentally tougher, utilizes the available talent better and schemes better.

It makes me think Irwin believes Bret will likely be here next year, so genteel coverage is still in effect.

Ok, fastest to 30 losses than any coach that was given 5 years here.  3 out of 5 years here 0-4 starts in the SEC.  This is just 2 reasons to move on from this regime.  At the end of this season if we do not win an SEC game I'm pretty sure in a 5 year span we will have the WORST win % in the SEC that is below Vandy an Kentucky.  But, thank god our players are staying out of trouble an Graduating that is really the ONLY thing you can hang your hat on.

Mike Irwin's gonna talk when Mike Irwin's ready to talk and a bunch of Hogville yahoos aren't going to force his hand on anything and anyone who would like to discuss that further can meet me at the Alma Sonic anytime you're ready. There's a nice big open field behind the sonic there just perfect for folks to work out differences and for settling both minor and major disagreements.

Mike's on the radio all the time. He's hogville's best friend...and I'm not going to stand for anyone to say another disparaging word about the man.

Irwin has stated that on here. I don’t think Brett is going anywhere. We will have him at least one more season. However, I would challenge B.B. to drop at least a 100 lbs by next season. It’s hard to tell young men about hard work and declipine when it appears you don’t have any yourself. Plus I truly believe it will make him better at his job: recruiting, coaching!

He has been on Bo's show a lot saying that there are no plans to get rid of Bielema and basically calling everyone who thinks that there might be or should be stupid.

In short, pretty much what he was saying about Chaney right before it was anooinced that he was going to Pitt.

he is saying whatever the coaches say. he just parrots what they say. then he gets mad at us, calling us drunks on a message board, when someone tries to challenge him. saying we are not there everyday, and he has been covering the hogs for 40 years.

with social media today, you don't have to be there, every press conference in on youtube. go listen for yourself, evaluate what you see on the field.

but, when cbb is gone, then the piling on will start

Maybe the plan is to be as bad as possible so the excuse can be "Every team we play is better than we are. Why would you expect us to win?"

Well, when you're considered one of the 25 WORST teams in ALL of college football, just about every team you play is considered a "better team". Please remind me whose job it is to see to it that a good number of those teams that are currently considered "better teams", are behind, rather than in front of us?

Mike is a very good reporter. I am a fan. I am sure the tone of what he has said on occasion has suggested some optimism about Bielema as a coach ... he is evidently a great guy, highly organized and has hired some assistants that are higher quality than Arkansas has seen in some time. I don't doubt Mike's views are pretty accurate and insightful.

Obviously, Bielema is a highly ethical guy who means well and has done a lot of things right. The bottom line remains, at some point it comes down to wins and losses. There is obviously something not working right now.

I pretty much agree with you on Bielema except for the final sentence.  There are four things not working.  Offense, Defense, Special Teams, Player Passion for Winning.

That's a lot to fix.

I think its a message board...That means its a place to have an opinion, even a stupid one.  What Mike does is basically going and hanging out at a skating rink and then complaining about all the kids on roller skates.
