Jealousy and ignorance rules this thread. I hope Bo makes a billion bucks and takes over ESPN. Why anyone would want someone else to fail when he has no competing reason is just petty.

You confuse jealousy for disdain.  You see it a different way so it is ignorance. This line of thinking makes you either a millennial and if you are too old for that, early onset dementia.   See how fun painting with a broad brush is?

Personally I think Bo is great and gets a bum rap on these boards. I think his replacement is the worst thing since toenail flavored potato chips.

Truth, because it's rarely about the guy fired and whether or not he should have been canned.  It all comes down to the subsequent hire.

There was so much speculation about "what really went on" around that, and we'll never know the real story.  What was always intriguing to me was that it seemed that JL hand picked BB based on believing he was a proven HC at a program that is similar to us in a lot of ways...always the underdog, and has to do more with less talent. 

I'm guessing the "uncommon" discussions about doing things the right way, and him not having ever been mentioned about not running a squeaky clean program at UW, likely made JL think, "Well....after what we just went through, the last thing I'm doing is hiring anyone that I think is going to black my other eye, or the UA's for that matter." 

Then well after the fact...we hear that even dating back to his UW days, he was known to frequent the bars a little more than some would like, and if the rumors are true about his drinking while at the UA, then it sort of makes one wonder if JL just chose to ignore some of what he heard prior to hiring him, or if he was never made prity to it. 

Either way....it all comes down to wins.  I think everyone knew Eddie Sutton as an alcoholic, but he won.  It's charming and insignificant, until you lose.  Then it's irresponsible and significant. 

I'm interested to see what mad hatter does at KU.  I think almsot everyone felt like he rode the talent at LSU, and won despite not being able to coach his way out of a paper bag.  We'll see if he can coach at KU.   ;D

Which is evidenced by the fastest way to get fired as an AD.  Hire a bad CFB coach.  A lot of them...don't even get a second chance at it.

And the magnitude of fail in the subsequent hire was amplified by the won-loss  record ofvthe guy who was fired. This is an argument that neither of us ever win. I am just so delighted we never have to hear blubber mouth again and hooe he stays in the NFL forever.

This is what Jeff Long does.
I thought he probably felt he was doing a whiz-bang job by getting these 'established' coaches like Bielema, Petrino, and Anderson to come here. After all, doesn't the average fan clamor for a 'proven winner'?
(Never mind that most of the great coaches in UA history were not 'proven' when they came here)

I liked Jeff as a person. His hiring choices were not that great.

He's doing the same thing now. He hired a 'proven' winner in Les Miles. But what does that have to do with Kansas?
First, Kansas is a tough situation---for anybody. But I think we're about to see the Bret Bielema thing play out all over again with Les Miles at Kansas. They'll have some moments where it looks promising but by and large Miles won't accomplish that much. But this is all Jeff knows how to do. He rarely thinks outside the box. This is where I give him credit for Jimmy Dykes; that was outside the box. Jeff was swinging for the fences there, which I like. Hit a homer or strike out. Before someone says Dykes failed, I will say he only got three short years.

Longs hires are a example of someone who is in charge making decisions with out proper knowledge or doing the needed research and background checks. He appeared capable but was negligent.

I am listening to Bo's show for the first time in a long time, just because it's the last one. I respect the show Bo and his team have put together, but am not sad at all to see it go. Bo's comment today about people around north central Arkansas not having a television is a good example of his pompous attitude toward Arkansas that I will not miss, among other things. I will miss hearing Clay if he is not continuing with any other local show.

My question is, did I hear a commercial indicating that Derek Ruscin will take over Bo's time slot? Please tell me I misheard that.

Derek Ruscin said on his most recent podcast that he is stopping his "Ruscin Is Ranting" Podcast to start a new project in March, which also made me think he was doing a new afternoon show to replace Bo. ESPN Northwest Arkansas is now running a promo about a new show coming March 11th from 3-7pm. The promo features a couple of voices, one sounded like Derek Ruscin and I wasn't able to identify the other.

Listening to the promo again, the other voice with Derek Ruscin sounds like Zach Arns. Some of you may remember Zach doing radio with Jon Williams back in the late 90s and early 2000s. More recently, Zach was voice of the Springdale Bulldogs. It sounds like Derek and Zach will take over for Bo's time slot on the ESPN affiliates in north and west Arkansas but KARN-AM 920 out of Little Rock may be doing something different.

Good luck to Bo.  I get why some didn't like him, but I enjoyed his show.  I really wish Shawn Arnell was back on.  IMO Shawn was the best Arkansas has had

Did you catch the name of the show? I thought the promo was very vague... No name introduction or anything

Get Clay Henry and Grant Hall together all afternoon and that would work for me.  Great knowledge and storytelling.  Mix in Dudley Dawson and Mike Irwin a couple days a week. Just keep Grant and Dudley to limit the Cardinals talk to 5 minutes a day and we are good to go. Yes I know about Press Row- just trying to keep Ruscin out of the afternoon hours. I'll stop beating this dead horse now. Good luck to all.

My favorite Arkansas show, hands down.

Wes is good. And I really really liked the odd couple dynamic he had going with Smith.

I would pick Game on with Wess Moore his first run as his own show with Michael Smith and Mike Irwin calling for an hour everyday was awesome. Another would be  Jordan Stuckey who had a show with Michael Smith as well  called Stuck with Smitty  and then another show with Dave Barr ,but  after that he completely disappeared  around 2013 . Jordan Stuckey  had the great personality on air  like Pat Bradley and great  knowledge of Razorback  history and new how to mix humor and sports talk without it getting too boring or annoying.The last one and probably the one that could rival if not be  better than Bo Matingly in reaching state wide demand  from listeners not only in Northwest Arkansas  but Central Arkansas as well    Shawn Arnell would of  had the  best radio show .
