Long got hazed. haha.

At least Steinmetz didn't put him in the bed of a pickup truck, pull him through the automatic car wash, and drive all over Fayetteville with him back there.

For the 1,638,872th time...Jeff Long had nothing to do with the Pepsi contract. ZERO. That was done at the University level. Coke offered a 2 year deal worth $2 million dollars. Pepsi offered 10 years for $20 Million. Which one would you take if you were the university trying to raise money?

I'm not defending Long and I want him gone, just get tired of the falsehoods of the Pepsi deal. Also, I hate Pepsi.

It was Jeff Long and Bielema. They love Pepsi.

Chancellor and trustees needs to treat Long with
Respect. Fly him down to little rock, leave him out of
Meeting, fly back with him in the same plane and not communicate
With him is terrible.

Flying him down, making him sit there like the employee he is and not bringing him in IS communicating with him.

I just said his wasn't cryptic, I didn't say it was right.

You have a track record of frequently speaking with 100% certainty when you don't actually know what's going to happen, and being wrong. It makes you untrustworthy. With that said, if Leach is hired I'll formally apologize to you.

Contrariwise whomever replaces him will know not to sit on their laurels.

How many ADs are out there?  How many assistant ADs?

We only need one.

We only needed one coach when we hire JLS.  ;)

If he is so respected, he should zero issues finding a position elsewhere.

What makes him so ďRespectedĒ?

The financial situation of the school, handling of CBP, and Chairing the Playoff Committee are three.

I am not saying keep him or fire him. I am only saying he is respected outside of Hogville.

No problem. They will know enough as to why that it shouldn't bother them. Besides maybe some of them actually don't like Long anyway. Highly respected AD's are no different than the jobs. They are replaceable.

Well someone thought that when Nolan was tired and the string of bad football coaches we have had. Iím pretty sure Hogville thought Fayetteville was the destination that any great coach would want.

It isnít as guaranteed as some would like to think.

It isnít as guaranteed as some would like to think.

Well when Nolan was retired JFB had Bill Self in his hip pocket until White told him no.  He had Tubbs in his pocket until White told him no.  BP called and called until someone finally answered the phone. 

Hell BB wrote a love letter to get the job.

I don't think the option for good coaches will be limited.

John White burnt the BB program to ground by not allowing the hire of Self. Jeff long has been the slow burner left behind by White. We can get good coaches, good players and succeed. Arkansas is a sleeping giant (per Stoops). Long has helped keep us in an induced coma.

I imagine putting a bunch of guys in the pros and keeping good relations with them will pay off for Baum stadium at some point. It amazes me that any would grumble about this. Baseball is a winning program for us.

Yep, but he was a temp.

To be honest I don't have a problem with his hiring CBB.  At the time it seemed a good hire.

The problem I have with him now is his history of bad to mediocre hires.  That is not acceptable in your chief head hunter.

Which you can play the other side of that coin. ADs across the US will see we removed a highly respected AD.

Not a good rep to have when looking for an AD.

I don't think you would even need to look across the US.

If the Self rumor is accurate then he would have been coming to a program that recently won an NC.

I donít think that describes our football program.

Pork is one of more accurate guys on here but if you were around in the Heath, Pel, HDN days you would be well aware that even one of the best was batting about .333 back then and that was before the rumor mill got locked down.  Some of you new folks are far too quick to buy into anything posted.  Just be cautious getting your hopes up too much based on anything you see on Hogville.  That reduces board meltdown when someone's prediction does not pan out.

Well, looks like the text i got from my friend a few days back was right after all.     he text me again earlier this morning to tell me today.  but, i didnt quite feel like sharing since some of you like to haze anyone with any information. big bunch of jackholes some of you guys are...  but, there it is.  i am sure a lot of you are happy with what has transpired.  These other schools were trying to get the jumpstart on coaching search.  florida sure did, and UT.  but, hopefully, we'll be able to pick up some steam and find a good guy.   anyways.. onwards and upwards.. oh and I Told you so!  =-P
