    If they can produce a conference title within a reasonabl period of time say 2-4 years, then the $$$$ were worth it.

    With a coaching staff making around $7 million a year, they better produce sooner rather than later. As far as "restocking the shelf with more talent", what we have isn't chopped liver. At these prices he had better produce a top 25 team within 2 years.

    I'll tell you what the real longtime slight is. Paying coaches such exorbitant sums for playing a game, and then turning around and paying people who actually contribute something to the well being of society such paltry sums of money!! Arkansas is still waaaaay behind in this area. So keep on playing and watching your foolsball if it makes you feel better.
