So many people are more angry about the 1pt win because...
« on: November 04, 2017, 07:41:23 pm »



They honestly believe that it saved his job or he would be fired tonight.

You allowed posters opinions WITH ABSOLUTELY NO INSIGHT to what was going on behind the scenes to become fact.

When was the last time a Arkansas coach was fired with 3 games left in the season???

Obviously the writing is on the wall and most including me would be shocked if he were retained but some of you won't allow the process to play out and the Anti-Jeff Long post are spilling over into the Jump all forum.

Personally I want our current 2018 recruit's to stick to their verbal commitments and also prospective coaching candidate's to see the potential in our gladiators on the field.

Keep in mind were going to be competing against Florida and most likely Texas A&M, Tennessee & Ole Miss for a a big name coach. That's just the SEC.

It's actually more appealing the less work they may have to do to turn the program around. At the end of the day we still have to sell the program to a prospective hire, so what does trashing the player's & AD (who's doing the interviewing) really accomplish???

There's a coach right now who is a hot commodity and who wants this job. The change needs to be made.

I'm thrilled the kids squeaked out a win. That said, CBB should have been fired on the field and sent home. He is done. The university knows it, the kids know it, the fans know it and the donors know it. It's time to rip the bandaid off and get to work recovering this team from despair.

This is the main difference between us and the Florida class teams . They just fired a coach coming off back to back SEC east titles . We can't fire a coach who is at maybe 30% winning rate . Winning does matter to them. We are a slow , poorly conditioned team who gets pushed around on both LOS by lesser talented players

There’s nothing stopping us from lining that up behind the scenes.

Assuming you want a current coach who has a successful win/loss record now....is he going to quite his job and assume coaching duties next weekend or late December/January????

You DO NOT let a recruiting class of 14-15 hang in limbo for almost 8 weeks until a hire is made official.

The state of Florida (Gators) & Texas (Aggie's) is loaded with so much talent you can assemble a top 20 class from scratch in 3 weeks. Jan-Feb 5th.

Now if you can without a doubt announce the Offensive or Defensive Coordinator at Clemson/Alabama etc..  as the successor early your 2018 class will fall apart by Thanksgiving.

Don’t worry about it.  LSU will beat the ever loving S@#t out of us next week.  Then MSU will rape our skulls and we’ll be limping into Bert’s final game as Arkansas’ coach.  If it’s not, it will be the end of Jeff Long.  No one can deny how pathetic our program is now.  It’s just a matter of time.

The high from firing the coach will wear off quicker than you all realize.  Annoying everyone for your coach is fixed fix won't make it come any faster. 

The season is almost over.

We simply do not trust Jeff Long to do what looks obvious to everyone else.

Yeah let's let protecting that 63rd rank recruiting class dictate our decision making.

Then Missouri will hang 45 on Hogs. Ark defense won't stop that offense.

And you think this coach would leave his current gig with games left to come here? Seems to me you just need some patience and a little expectations management.
