However, with other schools grabbing coaches and us not, shows me the BOT thinks we are getting a coach playing next weekend. I don’t want Gus, but I’ll say this, if he wins the NC at AUB then leaves to come here, it might be the biggest recruiting tool that I can possibly think of. Pay attention to AUB and Memphis’ early signees, if they start saying they’re signing late it’s a signal the coach might be leaving.
I’d like to think your right. I’m in Memphis. I have contacts within the UM athletic department that told me before football season started that Norvell would take the Arkansas job if ever offered. I really didn’t think much of it at the time as I expected Bielema to survive this year.
As I stated in another thread I was buying into the Gus thing. I agree it would be a major coup for us and recruiting.
My worry is who’s in charge at the Uof A. For whatever reason various admins at Arkansas have been successful at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. They certainly suck in PR. I’m very skeptical.
