I didn't know fans are paid to make these decisions.  When do we get our checks?

I never thought it was a good idea.  In fact, I said from the time Long hired John L. Smith that he had self-imposed the death penalty on Arkansas football.  Guess what?
I know several who thought John L Smith was the biggest joke ever when he was hired and several who didn't like the BB hire.  What I always said if you lose 3 games in the Big10(weakest it had ever been) with Russell Wilson you are always gonna lose more than 3 games a year at Arkansas.  Always

Most of us do what most fans do - pray it's a good hire and hope for the best.
Every new coach deserves support until they show they don't.

Wow!! Thanks for that - I don't think anyone on this board has ever expressed that before

Who are you, the thought police?   Or just another Jeff Long Flunkie?

I'm calling BS on most people who say they KNEW Bielema was a bad hire at the time.  Easy to say now...

Speak for yourself, fella.
Agreed.  Living in Mizzou country I asked several friends how they thought CBB fit at Arkansas.  None of them understood it....I didn't understand it either.  Arkansas only wins when we outscore folks.  Our defense has never been good enough to run smash mouth football.  Especially in the best division of college football in the nation.

There were some, but they were few.  And most were just hungover from the Petrino firing.

I thought the hire was a home run.  I missed that call; the ball hooked in front of the foul pole.

You are new on here.  I remember quite a few people not liking the hire when it was made.
