"Long has said the football program is more than wins and losses. Some say the athletic director’s job is more than the football program.

Both are wrong.

Football is the biggest marketing platform the entire university has.

And wins and losses, ultimately, are all that matter there.

In the SEC there are no participation trophies.

Which is why Long may be more worried about saving his own backside than what to do with Bielema."

According to a lot of what I have read on Hogville, the football program is only a minute part of the ADs job.

85% of the REVENUE.   Money is all that matters to them.

I am now a fan of Andy Hodges, and I wish more of the Arkansas would be as blunt about Long and the program.  Many blame Bret but Jeff Long is the one that hired him and should not be allowed to make another hire.  I for one will not buy another ticket as Jeff Long is AD.  Smite me all you want but loss of money is the loudest voice fans have.  It's time to use this power.
