I’ll try anyway.
Now that there’s an opening for UA HFC, we’ll spend the next day or two throwing names around and arguing about them. That’s great and fun and distracting. But it will get old. Then, we’ll worry that someone is “definitely” in or out, and we’ll argue about that. Eventually, we’ll start wringing our hands and worrying what’s taking so long, wondering if all the good coaches have backed out and if Arkansas will ever hire anyone every again.
This will start sometime Thursday.
When it does, everyone needs to take a breath. The regular season still has three weekends left. Then there are the championship games and the bowls. The likelihood of a hire before the first weekend in December is quite remote. Lots will happen in the interim.
There. I said it. Won’t do any good. But I said it. I feel better now.
