I don't think anyone has ever said that, just pointed out that if a school does that it doesn't help them land a good hire



Also this whole situation is strange.

This is just what I am thinking:


They are freaked out with what Kirby is doing at Georgia. They see he is destroying people, including them, in yesr 2. They think "why not us?"


Also, his whole tenure has been strange there. This week with the whole death threats thing. Then it comes out that was probably not true, while silly I don't that that is why he is getting fired. Although that seems to be what the school is going with.

Florida knows they can be great when they have the right coach.  Good enough isn't good enough.  It wasn't for Ron Zook, it wasn't for Muschamp, and it's not for McElwain.

Some programs absolutely demand excellence.  Some don't.

It's that he was never competitive in those "east titles," especially when the east was and still is well below the other side.  He was to have been an O-ffensive guru.  Far from it.

Mind you, I hate FU but he was way below what they think they should be.

Really?  Have you thought about that premise?  Because if true, a coach who isn't even decent took a program with little to no tradition or advantages and beat us by four touchdowns about three weeks ago.

i read the florida boards [and others].

it's performance related at its core. after that, it's personality.

despite the W/L record and east titles, fans did not like on the field performance and ongoing personnel mysteries. personality-wise, Mc just didn't click when trying to explain why things were the way they were.

This right here is what pisses me off about Arkansas. We are in the SEC, where schools demand excellence and championships from their football programs. Arkansas doesnít belong in the SEC because we are happy at .500 and celebrate moral victories. We do not deserve to be in the same conference as Bama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida.

Yeah, our BOTs are more pathetic than the coaching  if we don't have consequences for 11 SEC wins in 5 years and 4 of those are to Ole Miss.
