I heard this story driving home in the past few weeks, I believe on Bo’s show. Clay/DD/anyone else, please correct me on this as I’m sure I’ll miss a few details…
A national pundit relayed this story, quoting several sources, so many that he felt comfortable relaying it, despite lack of “proof”.
Story goes: Sam Pittman leaves Arkansas to re-join Chaney at Jawja. Bielema is upset, and had the whole Hog OLine go to Sam’s house and try to change his mind.
After that, CBB reportedly had a discussion with some folks, including Rex Ryan, about how upset he was, and also how “it was time to part ways”, “kinda glad Sam left, we’re better off without him” etc, . Reportedly Rex and Sam are very good friends, unbeknownsts to CBB.
Shortly afterward, Rex has a young OL assistant who he thinks is NOT a great coach, and he calls CBB to recommend this coach to CBB…and we ended up with Coach Anderson!
That’s hilarious if true. now that it’s over, I mean. not so funny when I was vomiting during CBB’s last 14 games lol
