Bet all of these jokers' buyout still higher than Harvey Weinstein's.

Great opportunity for the Hogs. Take the difference between the $15 million we all believed was the buyout and what it really is and try to buy some players. Other schools have done it, so join the club. A Heisman QB goes for $175,000 or so, a suspected rapist a lot less.... Of course, I'm not really serious in asking Arkansas to cheat like so many other schools have and continue to do. .......just making a point that it takes quality players more so than high priced coaches to win in the SEC. A combination of both would be great, but that hasn't happened at Arkansas in years; and te prospects of it EVER happening are slim and none.

That should turn up the heat a bit. Time for Bielema to produce a miracle and beat Alabama or Auburn. Lol

Long hired Bulimia so he's just as complicit in this ongoing fiasco as Bulimia is. Look at what Nebraska did recently. The AD can be on the hot seat too.

Coach B should hook up with Houston Dale and find out how he went about quitting to take a new job with the Landsharks AND got a buyout from the U of A.
