Re: MA Firing

I am inclined to agree that Mike Anderson deserved another year but I am not surprised by this. I totally agree that our AD better have an A list of candidates and not some "flavor of the month" type coach waiting in the wings. Stan Heath (another good man) was a "flavor of the month" guy when he go...

Re: Bielema's buyout

So the take away from this is that Bret Bielema is going to have to find a job that pays $3,000,000 annually or the Razorback Foundation is going to pay out the entire $11,000,000 + contract (whichever comes last) to fulfill the contract's final obligations? Am I missing something? In the meantime, ...

Re: Bielema's buyout

That makes sense. So, Bielema can go to work for some football program or franchise and the Foundation would still have to pay the difference between what he is receiving right now from us offset by what he receives from his new employer. However, what kind of job would he have to take so that the F...

Bielema's buyout

I saw a Wally Hall column a couple of weeks ago stating that the Razorback Foundation was paying just over $320,000 a month to Bret Bielema to satisfy the buyout provision of his contract. This last year he worked as a "Special Assistant" to Bill Belichick. So, is it wrong to conclude that the Found...

Re: an open letter to the Arkansas Sports Media

I look at Randy Rainwater as an earnest stand up guy who understands and appreciates the rank and file Razorback fan. He also has on people who have walked the Razorback walk such as Marcus Elliot, John Thompson and Dr. Fitz Hill as a player or a coach. Despite his tendency to blow sunshine up our s...

Re: an open letter to the Arkansas Sports Media

Everything you say is true. I bet you and I could put together a program that could certainly rival the 2 to 6 time slot shows we have now just by not being snarky or divisive to the callers that contribute to the content.

Re: an open letter to the Arkansas Sports Media

I get your "free market" argument when there are a variety of choices in front of you but in my local market, you have 2 choices from 2 to 6 - Sports Talk and Paul Finebaum. While I respect Finebaum as a journalist, his show is more about Alabama with some discussion regarding Georgia, Auburn, Flori...

Re: an open letter to the Arkansas Sports Media

I agree with your sentiments. There is a disconnect between the media and the rank and file Razorback fan. Fans can spend up to a thousand dollars to attend a game once expenses such as lodging, food, gas, tickets and yes, a contribution to the Razorback foundation is factored in. It won't be cheap ...

Re: Fire Morris

Morris is trying to win with a roster that was constructed to compete in the Big Ten West (or Legends or Leaders or whatever they call it these days); not the SEC West. I take heart that Nebraska is 0-2 with a new but popular coach, UCLA is 0-3 with a new but proven winner and Florida State is 1-2 w...
