    I suspect Petrino was fired because enough big boosters told Long to do that.

    It was a stupid decision whoever made it. Hiring a replacement who was clearly not ready just made it all the worse.

    Long didn't have the football background to figure out that Bielema was the apprentice of Barry Alvarez at Wisconsin and not ready for a job like ours. His performance in year five suggests he will never be ready.

    We can get somebody better. CBB has performed well below our standards.

    no good coach is gonna come to Arkansas.

    We don’t have anything to offer that anyone else can’t match or won’t match. Arkansas is a big pay day into early retirement. Or career suicide. Coaching careers die at Arkansas.

    We are not a football school. We re trying to get back to being a basketball school. Football just needs 8-9 wins a year to be a success. And I’m good with that. I have seen the light.

    Frank Broyles, Lou Holtz, Ken Hatfield, Houston Nutt and Bobby Petrino all had a lot of success at Arkansas.

    The light that you see is not something that I see. In recent times, Petrino, while his ethics are questionable. lead you to the Sugar Bowl and national prominence. So, it can be done.

    I think the real question is, can Arkansas administration find the coach that fits Arkansas. Can they recruit a coach that will take them higher. I don't buy the baloney that says it can't happen at Arkansas. The administration has to be capable enough to find him.

    Houston Nutt was hired by a committee of ex-players, administrators, boosters etc. Maybe they will do it like that. Nutt won the SECW two times so a little more democracy didn't go too badly.

    I think Long is more of a businessman/fundraiser than a football guy. He couldn't tell Bielema was the apprentice of Alvarez and not ready for this.

    Long has Arkansas last in SEC in graduation rates, too

    By Andy Hodges - November 8, 2017


    At a time when the football program is in crisis, Jeff Long’s supporters have talked about how he was brought in to improve academics.

    While the university put out a press release Wednesday touting the school record graduation rate, that’s only a small amount of the actual truth.

    It’s dead last in the SEC.

    Which means Long’s touting academics as a priority over wins and losses in football sounded like a reasonable argument, the fact is Arkansas is doing about as well in that as in football wins and losses.

    Here are the latest numbers, released by the NCAA on Wednesday:

    • Vanderbilt 96%
    • South Carolina 93%
    • Missouri 91%
    • LSU, Mississippi State, Alabama 90%
    • Kentucky, Tennessee 85%
    • Ole Miss 84%
    • Florida, Georgia 83%
    • Auburn 82%
    • Texas A&M 81%
    • Arkansas 80%

    The fact of the matter that was pointed out to me by someone recently was every school in the NCAA has seen an increase in graduation rates because, well, the NCAA has mandated it.

    Arkansas just hasn’t improved as much as everyone else.

    There have been a growing number of disgruntled boosters, ex-athletes and others that have said for years that many claims and statements from Long and his minions are half-truths, misleading and only giving part of the information.

    It makes you wonder if the UA Board of Trustees should have listened to former Sen. David Pryor a couple of years ago when he publicly questioned Long’s claim of a need for new luxury suites in the north end zone in Fayetteville.

    You know, the one that has the stadium under construction at a cost over $160 million (that has had some questioning how it was handled from a fiscal standpoint) while adding about 3,500 seats for folks willing to spend a lot of money.

    The questions for Long continue.

    And more evidence for the growing number of people that want a change not only in the guy at the top of the football program, but the athletic department as a whole.

    Which makes the next month or so even more interesting.

    I hear that the BOT's meeting that wraps up today could tell the tale on Long and Curly.........
