This is very true.  I have a junior and senior high student with very high test scores.  Alabama has been the most aggressive at recruiting my kids.  We visited over the summer.  They are much more aggressive than Arkansas about going after high achieving students.

Many schools go after high achieving students from out of state because they take so many soso students from in state. You ever look at the grade requirements to get a lottery scholarship in Ar? Not exactly high end students right there.

A 3+ hour executive meeting cannot be good for Long, right? At the very least, we will at least see some changes from him, I'm willing to bet. At the very most, he's gone. I can't imagine them just sitting in there for 3+ hours just twiddling their thumbs.

Oh no, it’s perfectly normal to keep a million dollar a year employee out in the Hall cooling his heels for three hours.  Just ask some of the guys on this board.

Jeff Long up walking around outside executive session room. We've now surpassed three hours.

$20 says the BOT is just sitting in that room reading this thread seeing how long this thread will go on while coinciding with their top secret meeting.

And people threw a fit when they initially were going to make the requirement for lotto scholarship be 2.0 gpa AND like a 17 on the ACT....

They are arguing over whether he reminds them more of Kermit the Frog or Jerry Reed talking to Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit.

"Now Bo, when I tell you we're gonna keep winning in football, we ain't gonna keep winning." 

"We're not?"

"No, we're gonna become the worst football program in the SEC West."

"So winning is really worst in the SEC West."

"Right.  And when I say the stadium expansion is gonna cost $78 million, it ain't gonna cost $78 million."

"It's not?"

"No, it's gonna cost $160 million."

"So $78 million is really $160 million?"

"Yeah.  That ought to keep them confused."

"Oh, they'll be confused alright."

Its gotten much more difficult to get in to the U of A.  Their minimum requirements are not real high, but you also can not get in with the minimum.  U of A hands out much less in scholarship money to local kids for some reason.  They say that they are going to correct that. They haven't as of yet. My daughter already knows what she will get from Alabama.  We will not hear from Arkansas until next spring.  Alabama just tries harder for the good students.

Going back to 2010 when we had our college finding experience with our youngest, it was crystal clear that Arkansas was not up to par in getting the top students when compared to Oklahoma (it has a division with about 8 people working in to devoted solely to attracting National Merit Finalist students), Miss St, Auburn, and Alabama. I would throw in others but they are obvious already and/or private schools (SMU, ND,  Univ of Va, Univ of Ga, U of NC, W&L, and a couple of others). All of those we had direct experience with.

As far as you know. Does anyone who knows anything at all about this process really think the BOT is going to instantly type up a PR stating they just release Jeff Long and will fire BB shortly? Silly. It's already been done and they'll announce it the weekend after the Missouri game.

Cause UofA is almost at capacity now since they give out of state tuition to places like Taxes. They do not have to give out a ton of scholarships, BUT the lottery scholarships do not come fro the UofA. My kid is a FR this year, and one of the schools he looked at was UofA, so we know all about it. You are right though, they take for ever letting people know what they will be getting in FA when compared to other schools.

So the new coach won't know who his boss is going to be?  Seems odd to me.

Makes me worry they're going to give Bielema another year.

Anyone hearing anything about financial issues and deceiving the board regarding the expansion? Or is that just far fetched rumor? Also any truth to the rumor of insurance fraud surrounding RWIII?
