This should be interesting. I'm a Gus fan however would love to see what Norvell can do on the this level. Not sure we will ever see either one of them though.

I'd be ok with either.  Gus has done very well at Auburn and his offense would translate to the recruits that Arkansas pulls in.  I don't think Auburn will let him go, though.  He's in a better program at Auburn with better recruits, more money, and a bigger fan base.

You think we end up with someone else? I think it will be one of these two.

I'm not really a Gus fan, but it'd be hard to argue hiring a coach with his kind of recruiting abilities and experience. Still, he's really hit or miss and hugely dependent on the right personnel to run his system. Can he do that at Arkansas? Maybe.

I'd tend to rather take a chance on Norvell being the next Urban Meyer. It's a bigger risk and a longer shot, but the upside is big. Worse case scenario, we're in this same place in another five years.

I voted Norvell mainly because I think it is more of a fresh start the majority can get behind. I fear Gus would be a divisive choice.

If Gus comes in wins and embraces the fans it will bring the fan base together. Whichever one can win here is the one I want. With that being said I would probably take Gus because he knows Arkansas and he's already done a pretty good job at the highest level. Plus I like the style of defense his teams play. Not to mention his style of offenses at Springdale were juggernauts. Maybe he can bring back some of those plays.

Shokced so many folks are in on Norvell and out on Gus. Gus is a proven SEC winner and recruiter. Norvell has proven he can win in CUSA but not against the talent you face week in and week out in the SEC. Hogville is Bias I know but when it comes down to picking a proven SEC winning coach who has made a national title appearance vs a young up and coming coach, its an easy choice.

Well it's an either or poll.  You don't know how many people put Norvell as 1a and Gus as 1b.  Just because they chose MN first doesn't mean they are out on Gus, just means they prefer MN for any number of reasons.  Example I would put MN 1 but wouldn't have a problem with Gus, my main concern is that it would be a divisive hire because some fans view Gus so negatively so why put the program through that drama if it's not necessary.

The coach who
1. Has Arkansas ties
2. Won a NC as OC
3. Been to a title game as head coach
4. Recently been to a NY6 bowl

Too easy, but hog fans have bitter ex Syndrome and hate Arkansans /people with arkansas ties who are successful outside of the razorbacks. Theyd rather be mediocre

This...Gus would be a home run hire and a real HR hire who doesn't have a AD guiding his every move. Gus leaving Auburn would be more shocking to the national media than CBB was in 2013

It isn't bitter Ex syndrome, it's about what happened in 2006. Houston Nutt was dirty but Gus had dirt on his hands too.

Correct. That entire situation was a lesson of pure greed on all sides. My hope is that no one who had any part of it ever has anything to do with razorback athletics again.

It's that obvious? 1.5 years as a HC taken over from a guy who did the actual building, coaching in CUSA and has zero experience in the SEC...yeah that's the obvious choice /s

Look...he may come in and set the world on fire but let's be honest here. This is the SEC and on top of that we are not named Bama or UGA or FL.

So to sum it up...1.5 years as a HC,  no SEC experience in any way shape or form, never built a program in his image from the ground up yet he is CLEARLY the guy? Sounds an awful like a basketball hire made in the early 00's.

Norvell would be the more popular choice for us message board types.  But we are the minority.

I'm certain Gus would be welcomed back by the majority of Arkansas fans.  It would all be Hooty's fault at that point. Bygones would be Bygones.

And Gus's mythically legendary rise up through the state of Arkansas goes well beyond the events that transpired in one fall in 2006.

I'd take either in a heartbeat.  Norvell is young, and the product he puts on the field is exciting. Gus puts an exciting product on the field as well. As far as Gus dividing the fanbase is concerned, all would be forgotten when the results came. Gus is also a proven commodity, which would make recruiting and hiring proven assistants a little easier. He would be able to attract a top-notch DC. I like Norvell because it would signal a fresh start, but if it turned out to be Gus I think it would be a great hire.

I voted for Norvell but it could be any of several good young coaches.

Gus, coaching performance aside will never have unified support.  It's impossible for him to  overcome the political divide of his history in Arkansas and his performance has been erratic enough that he's not worth the fight anyway.

Sure I did. What he did was wrong, no doubt about it, but it didn't merit termination. He should have been fined, suspended for a few games, and put on probation but not terminated.
