It's time to get Gus. It's time to part ways with Bielema. Hogs are beyond salvage with this head coach. Go Hogs.

Hogs go 4-8. Long won't fire Bulimia , but Rhoads will be one and done.

I love offense. Great show. No need to worry about the West As long as Saban is there. Let's enjoy these shoot outs and win some every once in a while.

Jeff Long and Bret "Losing Record" Beliema both need to go!

Exciting to watch but the number in the "W" column is what counts. It will be a small miracle if we break .500 this year. Even if we wait until January to axe Beliema we will still have to pay over $11 million in a buy out. That is ridiculous. We will probably be an also-ran in the SEC forever so why pay so much for a coach????

How much is Jeff Long's buy-out...isn't he the guy that has hired all of these coaches that just can't get it done for the program?

Bielema's buyout is $12 million thanks to Jeff Long. Bielema has job security for a very long time. He doesn't have to worry about losing.

I'm middle aged and the Hogs have never been real good. We are at best, the fourth best program in the west behind Alabama, Auburn, and LSU. Most would say A&M is the fourth best based on recruiting base. Firing Bert probably won't solve things. This job is not one of the best in the west from a recruiting standpoint, but $5 million annual salaries sound good to most people. I just hope Bert figures out how to win some of these so he can stick around. He is a good representative of the state. He doesn't cheat on his wife and he doesn't lie to his boss.

I have often wondered why a coach is given so much money before he proves he is worth it. Why not offer a fair salary and tie in bonuses for paid attendance, won games, bowl appearance, national championship? This could possibly guarantee the school would not lose money and the coach could reap a giant harvest if he is successful. Arkansas could be a pioneer with a program like this.

Almost don't count except in horseshoes and hand grenades! I was concerned that A&M wasn't going to cover the spread, but knew in the back of my mind that the hapless Hogs would come through in the end! Thanks, fellas!! Bulimia is the Pillsbury Throwboy!! Pretty sure that Long can be fired by the administration. Nebraska just did it to their second AD in 10 years!! Where is Les Miles these days?!
