Oh, its coming.   But until it happens, KEEP UP THE PRESSURE.   Write letters.  Don't go to games.  Do NOT donate money.

The attendance at Homecoming broke Jeff Long's back.   But we haven't gotten him yet.  Keep it up.

If you're talking about Bielema, might as well let him finish the season. There's no saving it. And I don't imagine any other coach is going to leave their team to come coach the last two or three games at Arkansas (games he'll probably lose).

THE only possible thing I see is similar to what happened to Muschamp. Let every one know he is going but is going to finish the season.


Still think it's slim we hear any thing of substance before November 25th

It'd be a FLa type thing, interim for the last 2 games, while the search begins for the new HC. The new HC would likely be named right after games finish up the weekend of Nov 25, unless the new guy is coaching in a conf title game somewhere.

Itís not BB...  UA isnít firing him with 3 games left and put a lame duck interim in place.  He has to be talking about JL. 

JL probably challenged the PTB over BB and lost!

Probably, but I don't consider either of them the "king", and I also don't think Long loses his job.

The school cares about MONEY.   Attendance is what is killing Jeff Long and helping the boosters who are fighting to rid us of the snake.   DON'T GO TO GAMES.   We are winning, but it is not over.   JUST DON'T GO TO GAMES.

If Jeff Long is fired this week you're looking at another year with Bret or a coach you're going to be extremely disappointed with.

It takes a little longer to get an AD than a coach.

I'm not talking about concession sales and the handful of tickets not already sold.   This is a BUSINESS and they are losing their CUSTOMERS.    And it is Jeff Long's fault.    Do not go to games.  Help the boosters with brains win this fight.  DO NOT DONATE UNTIL LONG IS GONE.  Write letters telling them you will NEVER support them FINANCIALLY until Jeff Long is gone.   

Jeff Long's REAL job is to make the UofA money through athletics.   They are building on to a HALF EMPTY STADIUM.  HaHa.  That is how we are winning this fight.

Very unlikely. If they are going to fire Long then it's extremely likely that they already have an interim AD ready to go and he'll lead the search for the new football HC.

Key phrase being interim Guv.

Not how it works.  'They' don't act as a single entity.   They are divided right now and Long is in a power struggle that he is losing.  We are almost over the top.  There is a war going on right now.  The good guys' best weapon is that Jeff Long is endangering the UofA's enormous income off the football program.

Just don't go to games.  Don't donate, and let them know you will never donate until Long is gone.

That won't be a problem.

The only time who the AD is affects a coaching search is when the coaches know who he is and don't like him. As long as the new coach is guaranteed at least 4 years of his contract, he won't give a thought to the AD being an interim.

Enlighten me

How could I be more clear?  The UofA cares about MONEY.  Nothing else.  It is a business and MONEY is the bottom line.   Football is huge revenue.   Jeff Long's job is to make MONEY for the UofA.   Empty stadiums scare the HELL out of them, as it should.   We'll never get people to write letters, or to quit donating because they don't want to lose their seats.   But just don't go to games.   Long will be gone by the end of the season.

All of that "stuff", donations and ticket sales, are funds that have already been received back in the summer.

They were split 5-5 several weeks ago. I wouldn't be at all surprised if that has changed and not in Long's favor.

It ainít just the UA.  Think how much money WASNíT spent in NWA last week.  All those hotel and restaurant people all chirp and it gets back to the BOT and everyone else.  Lots of people with lots of personal connections to this BOT member or administrator or
that are bitching and unhappy because instead of two more big paydays before Christmas and the end of the year, theyíve got big zero weekends coming up.

All that plays a part at some point.

I can't argue that but the point of "don't buy tickets, don't go to games" in an effort to hurt the football program in the pocketbook doesn't really apply since everything for the 2017 season is already "in the books."

True. However, it is the residual "fall out" of hotel rooms going unsold, restaurant and bar receipts tailing off and other spending tied back to lack of fan attendance that will be a hit to the local economy. If that happens the next two home games I can virtually guarantee that there will be some noise being raised as to the fans' "boycotting" games.

Most if not all coaches do not want to be hired by an interim AD.  Think about that.
