So long Coach Bielema. Time to turn the page for a new chapter. I think there's a good JUCO out there waiting for you.

Coach Bielema is a class act, huge respect for him. But after 5 years with very little success, it is time to turn the page and move along. I suspect he realizes that as well. I truly wish him and his family the best going forward.

Leo Durocher was right - nice guys finish last. I just hope we don't pay (waste) a ton of money for someone else to come in and do the same thing. This balloon of exorbitant coaching pay and severance packages blew up in our face again. It is said that lunacy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Allen commented on all those plays inside the 20yd line that resulted in no touchdowns and says............." not quite sure what that was all about "

Seems like our selection committee is set on hiring an AD and maybe a head coach that has an Arkansas background....they need to get that direction out of their heads and hire some people that can build a winning team regardless where they are from.

The first thing to ask an AD candidate................" what are the school colors of the U of A"?

If he says................."charcoal gray " .....toss his resume in a garbage can.

The "real" football programs in the NCAA don't prostitute themselves to some athletic apparel company and have that company dictate that they wear charcoal gray uniforms.

Why does Arkansas ?

1/3 1/3 1/3 rule. 1/3 of a chance you get someone worse, 1/3 chance you get someone the same, 1/3 chance you get an improvement. Hope recruiting committee understands that rule.

Where did things go wrong? Easy answer: the recruiting classes were always in the bottom half of the SEC. I directly attribute that to the way Jeff Long handled the Petrino affair making a spectacle of that for his own glory and then following it up with goofy and bankrupt John L. Smith. Coach B had a mountain to climb when he got here....
