Big, big mistake to shell out that kind of money but Arkansas has backed itself into a corner with all the debt to expand the stadium. Sooner or later this ridiculous bubble of football will implode and hurt all other college athletics.

Malzahn is not coming to Arkansas, regardless what they offer him. It would like moving from a house with indoor plumbing to one without. Big step backwards.

It really just depends on what Gus wants...UAF will likely come through with more money and a friendlier environment, but he'll only beat Bama once every 15-20 years. He'll bring UAF to middle of the SEC pack. Most of the people that ran him off the first time are long gone.

At Auburn, the money will be good but the expectations higher, but he'll beat Bama maybe 40-50% of the time and he'll have much better athletes from which to choose when it comes to recruiting. The fan base and administration won't be as forgiving.

So it just depends if he wants to coach at a higher level with more risk, or be comfortable emotionally and settle (although slightly richer).

Translation: Gus & Jimmy Sexton are waiting on Auburn to bring him an even bigger Brinks truck than Arkansas'. I hope Bama boosters help stuff Auburn's truck, mainly so they can bring him the mother of all Brinks trucks whenever Nick Saban retires. I certainly don't want the Gus Bus coming home, but it looks like he's just a bidding war away. :(

Thank you Jarius Wright and Tyler Wilson for the recruiting assistance!

Although ESPN has been known to whiff mightily on a supposedly breaking story, their website shows Gus and Auburn have agreed to a new deal.

No Malzhan for me please. He's just another coaching nomad. His loyalty to the Arkansas State football team and program tells me all I need to know about him.

KingCoyote you shouldn't comment about things you don't know anything about. I agree the people on the hill have totally screwed up everything right now. But, the football bubble bursting and screwing up all college athletes? Don't you understand? Football pays for all other college athletics?
