Kudos to Nate Allen’s article, he wrote what needed to be said, and heard. i’m sure he will sleep better at nights. The cart has been placed before the horses figuratively speaking. They won’t stay I’m beginning to smell rotten stinky stuff once it is allowed to settle in it will spread over to other programs
There were arguments to fire Mike. There were arguments to keep Mike. Decision is made now, we move ahead. HY is not going to change his mind and bring him back. I do agree that not taking questions after the firing was a tone-deaf move. You may not have liked Jeff Long’s moves but he’d give you an explanation.
That pompous jack —- seizes any and every opportunity to open his mouth and try and show how great he is. Thank god I don’t have to see his explanations anymore.
I don’t care that HY didn’t take questions, he doesn’t have to explain why he fired someone who just hasn’t delivered a high level of play. It was understandable to a lot.

[/quote]It’s much tougher for Arkansas to be competitive in the SEC than many believe. There’s a very good reason, Heath, Pel, and Mike were not at the level of play achieved by Sutton and Nolan…it’s called the SEC and a small state.
You don’t fire anybody coming off back to back tournament appearances. And why do you guys think Beard comes to Arkansas last year? From everything I’ve read on Beard Texas Tech is where he wanted to be, and he’s not leaving there unless it’s a blue blood job or Texas. Maybe, after the UALR year, we might could have got him, but if Texas Tech offers then, he may still have chosen them over us.
