my favorite line from wally this morning......

Someone must have told him that. Wally's never read Chaucer. The only thing Wally reads with any regularity are his birthday and fathers day cards.

To be fair, all but Dykes and Smith were thought to be good hires at the time. Can’t see the future, but Long’s legacy here will be determined in less than 30 days
All of Long's coaching decisions except Dykes had good merits at the time for their being hired.   Dykes we just did not know.    Smith was an interim coach so should not even be mentioned as a hire and everyone thought this patch was a good one at the time.  Dykes was a bad hire because he had no track record so Long made a mistake here.  CBB hiring at the time seemed like a great hire.  We all thought that.  So lets all quit being so high and mighty as MONDAY MORNING QBs and admit it.   

I would wish we would get off the fire Long and let the man do his job. This is getting too childish and petty.  It is not Long's fault that CBB was not the coach WE all thought he would be.  Bielema is not a good fit at Arkansas so lets move on.  Long is a professional, well respected and will not get on any twitter account and get childish like so many of us are acting to defend himself. 

 Now if Long does nothing or hires a coach you do not like then by all means challenge the man but lets wait and see what he does.  Let the man do his job.

I would hope the BOT would convene an emergency meeting this afternoon involving the Chancellor and tomorrow morning at a 9:00 A.M. presser announce the dawning of a new day in Arkansas sports in general and football in particular.

they meet on wednesday.

You also forgot:

Mike Larabee - Softball
Robert Pulliza - Volleyball

Both abject disasters.
Hahaha...we're all of sudden concerned about softball and volleyball.  There is more to being an AD than just hiring coaches.  CBB and Petrino were considered major coups at the time of hiring.  They didn't work out.

How do you know Long doesn't know it's over?  How do you know Long isn't talking to prospective new coaches every day?  How do you know Long doesn't have a plan in motion to hire someone soon after the end of the season?  My guess is he is doing what an AD should be and getting his ducks in a row so we don't end up with a situation like LSU.

How do you know Long is going to be here to and the call??

That’s pretty telling.  Long MUST go.  If he is so highly touted as the Longlovers seem to indicate, he should have a new job in a day or two.

If the BOT renews his contract, it may be the worst decision since the Iran-Nuclear deal.  I just hope Asa is watching all of this and realizes the importance of those nominations and the repercussions of not vetting it out carefully.  There is more to life than just solving Trigonometric Substitutions and Laplace Transformations.

He wouldn't have been looked over by SEVERAL other institutions if he was that highly thought of. That's just an illusion of the Long sheeple. Michigan chose a former football player that was AD at UCONN...... a basketball school, over him. But then again, Long had worked at Michigan in the past, so they know him. Then there's Nebraska.... they made a hire out of left field (no pun intended) over him. So you gotta wonder who the coaches are that's tied to these ADs. We know Moos hired Leach at WSU, decent looking results. Michigan already has harbaugh. Jeffi's coaching tie..... LesS Miles.

Here's the agenda;

I won't have time to attend the meeting that day.  I have a private meeting with Trump to air some of my grievances.  But maybe could attend next month's BOT meeting.

I don't believe that. Trump only meets with people that has more brains than him.

How do we know Jeff Long doesn’t know? Because it’s Jeff Long.
Jeff Long is the definition of "riding a high horse". He has consistently positioned himself as one who cares about "more important" things like improving players GPA, making them leaders, ect.than winning games. Therefore, if you disagree with what he is doing you are on the low road of caring more about winning than players doing well grade wise, ect. This all ignores the obvious that nobody pays a coach $4 million dollars plus a year in order for them to primarily work on making players better students over winning football games. Jeff Long needs to go and take his song and dance routine with him.

We have all observed Long "doing his job" for ten years.  The program can't endure another of his clueless hires.  "He thought it was a good idea" doesn't cut it.
