I watch the SEC all the time so of course I know WR's from other teams. You missed my point. It's not like people or your average fan from all over the country know him yet. They may one day but not yet.
Can the average from all over the country name a single current Razorback?

I don't really get this idea that coaches get worse as they get older.  More years experience = more knowledge = better coach

He's a knowledge resource for our players.  He'll do fine here.

Your health deteriorates, your brain slows down, and your energy levels drop.

Though, the biggest issue is a coach getting stuck in their ways. No matter what the profession, the older workers usually aren't the best because what worked well 20-30 years ago isn't what works best today.

Experience doesn't always translate to wisdom.

I completely understand the notion of Jeff Long hiring away the football coach of Wisconsin. That is a fine institution, and one would think its head coach would be a catch.

The part that was underscrutinized = how much money Long committed to hire this coach vs. his demonstrated level of competence. We paid Bielema like he was a superstar, and really, the best any of us was hoping for from him was basic competence. Nobody thought he would be instantly successful, and most of us thought we had bought into a five-year turnaround plan when he was hired.

Bielema had incessant staff turnover and hardly managed to build anything. Fine, time to go. But Long's financial commitment to Bielema made the transition especially painful.

Really, that's where Long failed. If it took that kind of financial risk to hire Bielema, we should have gone elsewhere. His odds of producing in line with his compensation were too long. Course, all we see are the headlines, "coach hired." Only later did we learn that Long had mortgaged everything.

Financial prudence should have kept Long from hiring Bielema. I'm certain Bielema would not have come if the offer had been appropriately sized. Long paid what it took to make the deal, not what made any sense.

 I didnít have an issue with what Bret was making when he was first hired, the issue was the dumb big buyout simply because of beating Texas in a lower level bowl.

Spencer Rattler is my #1(i know they are calling him pro, I'm combining the two), then Nix, Hilinski, Howell, then KJ, although I must admit I have questioned myself if I wasn't just seeing thru the rose-colored glasses on it, but I had him top 5 overall . But I almost wouldn't say it out loud. And now KJ and Gunnell are really comparable. As is Ty Evans coincidentally.

I didn't even look at the PRO style, just the DT.  I did notice Gunnell starts out #1 on a  couple of services and then fell to #2 for a long time but keeps getting evaluated down since committing to Arizona.

I think the hogs have just who they need in Jefferson.

With that being said - I don't feel "bitter" about any player who leaves the state. I don't do the state pride thing. I only care about the Razorbacks.  If they aren't Razorbacks then I won't follow their career or root them on - I simply don't care.

The only time I even think about Arkansans playing elsewhere is when I see it on a message board.  It seems like hogville brings up the players that we overlooked (no offer) as much as the players who left despite an offer.  Our fans are just as likely to get pissed at the coaches for undervaluing local talent.... especially the one's who clearly wanted to play here.

The main Arkansans who draw ire usually handled their recruitment poorly.  If you flip or string along the coach and fan base then there is going to be anger - and that holds true for out of state recruits as well.  The only difference is that we are constantly reminded about the instate recruits.

Ageee itís mostly all about how the recruitment is handled by them. What does indeed bother me to some degree is when any college athlete squanders the golden opportunity given to them and not get their degree or work hard or gets in trouble and kicked off the team and leaves school, flunks out, arrested, etc.

There is an asphalt paver and tack truck (maybe) in the NEZ parking lot. Are they going to overlay the parking lot or is that for the road? Looks like it may only be an 8' paver so I assume it's for the parking lot...

I'm with you brother.

It doesn't get better but eventually it does get easier.

Prayers coming your way.

Thanks. The deal is think about all the lives changed by college sports for both ordinary folks and the athletes as well. I venture to say over the years it would be millions.
