Sumlin appears to be on pace to have his second half of the season collapse.  Maybe we should hire Sumlin to coach us for the first six games and have Bielema coach us for the second have of the season?  Just a thought!

I don't know.  The way we closed out the second half last year makes that proposal iffy.

Wouldn't you think there was a no compete clause in all SEC contracts?

Not if the employer terminates the contract.

What about Sumlin and bring in Coach Bro (when he is fired at the end of the season) as OC?  With those two guys back together and bringing those strong Texas recruiting ties, I like that combo and upside.  Keep Roades and let him finish the defense rebuild job he has started.

Sumlin to Arkansas? That would be kind of awkward... We already have a HC. And he's probably going to be our HC next year too. And he's got built in excuses too.... Star receiver, RB, and Center and QB go down. And those excuses will work too.

We are  2-5 when our center played...that injury doesn't count.

I think Sumlin could use a change of scenery. He can still have success as a head coach. How can he be expected to win at a place that has only male cheerleaders?

Sumlin actually has done pretty well at A&M.

2012    11–2   
2013    9–4   
2014    8–5         
2015    8–5      
2016    8–5      

I think most people here would prefer that over what we had.   

 You just got trolled by the Aggies beat guy.!?!?!?

Might as well add him to the list of coaches that cannot do more with more and people thin they are going to magically come here and do more with less (Gus, Miles, Richt and Sumlin).

I think there is a lot to be said about a coach just changing venues and becoming rejuvenated.  A pessimistic view-point would be - 'He couldn't do it at A&M, what makes you think he can do it here?'  But sometimes it just becomes stale for a coach and a change of venue and team re-focuses them and their true potential comes out.  Plus, you take with you all the mistakes you made at your previous stop and can correct them accordingly (Handling of Quarterbacks...).

I would point to Will Muschamp to back up this point.  I, for one, thought he would be terrible at SC because he was terrible at Florida.  But he has succeeded beyond what I thought he could at SC in his first two years.  He specifically talked about what he needed to do differently to be a successful head coach in the SEC - and then acted on it.  No reason for me to think Sumlin couldn't do the same - or Gus for that matter.

Lack of any improvement in any area, lack of general understanding of off, def, s teams and lack of a winning record. Plus any high school coach in ark could have done better with same resources.  Butters is out. Follow the agents, not the teams for more in site.

One man's trash is another man's treasure. Substitute "college football program" for "man". Bielema can't beat Sumlin to save his job, so he is more attractive than Bielema to Arkansas. Plus, he's black. That would help since 80% of the team is black.

Kevin Sumlins offense would actually be a perfect fit for our roster.

Except for the first year those are mediocre outcomes based on their recruiting since joining the SEC.

Johnny foozball basically made Sumlin a lot of money. Once he was gone his results are mediocre (thought better than ours) with superior talent. I'm concerned about this hire.

 It may count more than we know... Wouldn't that be some crap to lose our only real NFL prospect and then win out..?

Not impressed...Figures to land in TTech or SMU, if he goes anywhere.

Remove Manziel and Sumlin would not even still be there.

Remove Arkansas from his schedule and it doesn't look so good.

Over the past 4+ years, he is 1-16 against LSU(never), Bama(2012), Ole Miss(2013), and Miss State(2014) in his last 17 games. (the year of his last victory over said school)

Might as well just hire Gus if we're gonna go the "retread" route

Be respectful please, Gus has family members on this board.  :P

I posted this SEVERAL weeks ago and got laughed off the board. We need an offensive Coach who can recruit and ties to Texas recruiting is a major plus. I'd take him in a heart beat
