1.  Too proud to recognize or admit we crapped in our nest by a Long shot.
2.  For sure
3.  No doubt

But really, at this point, it's probably best to just move on.  Still stunned 6 years down the road though at the lack of vision shown by our PTB's. 

Top 5 to bottom 5....hate that for the team and our fans.

The guy we should bring back won the West 3 times, gave us Matt Jones, Dmac, and all those other studs. Beat National Champion LSU at home, beat the teams he was supposed to beat. And even in his worst years, was competitive. My favorite years as a Hog fan! So before you haters blow me up, he loves that Helmet! Lmao

Long will never bring him back.  Only way is with a new AD.  It’s more likely our next coach will be facing him at another SEC school real soon.

Someone needing to stir up the small mass on Hogville. He is not ever coming back. Also he has just won one more game than Arkansas this year! Louisville is 5-4. So if we are going to change let us reach higher!

No.

He shouldn't have been fired but that time has passed.  Too many fans still blame the whole mess on BP and will not ever forgive him for it.  There's no reason to try to start another head coach off with so many of the fans already against him.

Same reason Gus shouldn't be considered either.

Ain't happening on any level except that part of my brain that still yearns for the best offensive coach Arkansas has ever had.  Those answers may surprise folks who remember my many post on Hogville but at the end of the day I'm a realist and I know that ship sailed off into the sunset as I was settin on the dock of the bay hating Jeff Long.

I concur. That time was fun, but it is gone. Too much divisiveness to be workable.

The thing that bothers me are the people who say that he shouldn't have been fired in the first place. He would have been fired from any major corporation if that became public knowledge. Probably every major college would have fired him as well, with very minimal exceptions. Keeping the leader of the organization after something like that happens destroys any credibility you have, and everyone feels like everything goes. The people ranting that we should fire the AD for making that decision have done nothing but continue to divide the fan base and harm the program. We get it. He had a good two years, but he is the only person to blame for being fired.

Just days before this incident transpired, in a more publicized story, Sean Payton was suspended for a year without pay for bountygate. which he both knew about and about which he lied to the NFL, in essence his boss. So much for every company/team would react the same way.

Firing BP was absolutely a reasonable option. However, it wasn't the only reasonable option.

There is only one name that needs to be considered, Mike Norvelle. Until he says no,there needs to be no further discussion on the matter. The next Frank Broyles, and maybe even the next Bear Bryant. Jeffie can redeem his legacy forever with this one hire, as much as I hate to say it. Would no longer be a yankee carpetbagger, and could go from the outhouse to the penthouse with one fell swoop.

Actually I do believe bring Bobby back is a possibility but only if the U of A's top choices say no.

To put it bluntly: If it came down to either Bobby or Gus, I'd take Bobby in a heartbeat. Why? Because in 3 out of Bobby's 4 years at Arkansas, the Hogs beat the team Gus was with.

I mean there going to have to make space in the new museum for all the Heisman trophies

Norvell is a very good coach and would be a very good hire but concentrating on one coach is what got LSU stuck with Orgeron. It's best to have multiple options in case their top choice says no.

Go Hogs!
The one thing I did like about Houston Dale, he was a players coach that won. CBB is a players coach, but seems to have problems coaching period. I liked Ken Hatfield too. Still very approachable. Friends with a couple of guys that played for HDN and they can get you fired up with the stories about how Houston could make you believe they were going to win a ballgame. They loved the guy.
