Recruiting Texas is what we need to go along with someone that can actually coach. You find that guy you've got your man.

I don't care where he recruits as long as he can coach and evaluate talent.

Rich guys with limited football knowledge got us in this mess and appear to now be trying to make it worse.  HY walked in the door and was handed the check book to get Gus and if that didn't happen to get Morris. I love what he's done with other decisions so far, can we just let the AD do AD stuff until the end of the season???
He had little if anythingt o do with either one.

Norvell? Mack Brown?
Bob Stoops (long shot)
Art Briles (if you're willing to look over what happened at Baylor)
Mike Leach ( as long as he doesn't turn into a butt pirate I guess)
Mike Gundy ( the oil man is dead)

When Briles got hired to coach again at a TX public school he clearly was able to show the Baylor stuff was beyond him. Supposedly, his wife won't leave TX. We kinda have discovered that is something we aren't all that comfortable with.

So Porktitarian says Norvell isn't on his list because some "skeletons" came up when he was vetted last time.

I thought I'd go back and look at Pork's info on the BBall search.  Notice below he claimed at the time that Muss was offered but BOT wouldn't approve because of Muss's supposed skeletons.  So how did that turnout?  I'm thinking the supposed skeletons were probably floated by someone not wanting us to hire Muss, HY sniffed out the BS, and low and behold ended up hiring Muss.

Some trustees wanted to wait and talk to Chris Beard after the final four, before we offered anybody else.

We came to an agreement in principal with Kelvin Sampson last weekend.  He had the contract in hard, but never signed it.   We moved on to Plan B, and Sampson got a nice raise and extension to stay at Houston.

We offered Eric Musselman, but the BOT Athletic Committee wouldn’t approve it.  Apparently EM has some skeletons in the closet.

Yurachek met with and offered the job to Gregg Marshall last night.  Hearing he will be our next head coach.

Flame away!


Porkatarian out...


Norvell and Musselman with skeletons in their closets. It's Halloween!!! yeah, bring him.

Basketball is not football...

But Musselman was not exactly a household name, and not exactly a rockstar on the recruiting trail. Nevada? HY was able to dive deeply into the resume and see things that maybe the average fan doesn't see.

I write that because I think a boatload of fans think "recruiting Texas" is a set-in-stone mandate for a HC. I might gently remind that is about the #1 reason offered up for Chad being (a) hired and (b) retained. Seems a tad bit myopic. Not that recruiting Texas isn't important. Building relationships is important. Having charisma is important. Selling a vision for your program is important. Do those things and the proximity and history of UA in Texas recruiting will eventually work itself out.

Get a great football mind. Get someone with some charisma. Get someone who has a plan/has vision. Recruiting will follow.

A "recruiting first" or "recruiting is everything" mindset might work for your fantasy football draft but there are other elements needed. (Not that anyone wouldn't agree, but just feeling compelled to remind).

Isn’t it ironic don’t you think....that the person saying they doubt U A would hire Norvell because of his so called skeletons said the same exact thing about Muss.  Actually said BOT rejected Muss. Then same person also floats rumors about Freezus, a man with known skeletons.  The absurdity & hypocrisy of it all

Simple answer is football and basketball aren't the same when it comes to hiring of HC's.

He might not ever be hired here, was just calling about some irony.  Also the skeletons thing is tired.  If someone knows what they are spill it.  If not it's just a circle jerk rumor.  He's been a successful HC for 4+ years and is known enough that it would have come out if anything serious or worth knowing.

Norvell doesn’t have any skeletons that prevent him from taking this job and that is a fact.

You know why that goes on. Line gnat's to the apple cider.

Muss had zero skeletons. Wasn't rejected by the BOT, was actually our AD's first choice but we had to deal with one dude and his infatuation with Beard.

Norvell likes coeds and camera phones.

The phones are ringing off the hook in both the AD’s office and the Razorback Foundation.   

Multiple boosters have let Yurachek know they’re pulling their donations until Morris is gone.

This is coming from a former trustee, fwiw.


Porkatarian out...

Those boosters better fork over multi-millions of dollars if they want him fired. If I were the AD I would tell them to think about it before they do something they will regret later. I would tell them that I make the decisions based on my observations and not their pocketbooks. It is my job to ensure the program is in good hands. Until then no one is going to get fired.

The boosters screwed everything up in the first place. We are where we are now because of them and their stupid decision to fire Bret and go after someone they could not get. They pissed off Gus long ago and Gus screwed them over real good by staying at Auburn. He has the last laugh. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Any word on if we are actually serious about getting rid of CCM after year 2 if we go 2-10 or 3-9? Also any word on if we might actually have interest in Kiffin this time and try to get him?

The one element that is missing is getting the experience these young recruits need to be really good at playing and winning football. One and a half are not enough. Not even two or three years. 4 to 6 years are the winning years. Take that to the bank.

 I keep forgetting. You guys want microwave instant winning soup. Cook for 3 mins and your national champions. Good luck with that.

I remember allot of fans not liking what the media outlets and other teams fans were saying about us and making fun of Arkansas fans wanting to fire Bret and especially trying to get Gus and ending up with Chad. You guys sure you want to go through that again and possibly with the same results or mediocre results at best?

I’m not doubting that Muss had zero skeletons. What I am calling out is the insiders own account that Muss did have skeletons & was rejected by the BOT.  Was proven 100% wrong on that but then turns around & claims same thing on Norvell.  Maybe it’s true about Norvell maybe it’s not. Right now it’s just message board rumor, period, & constantly repeating it doesn’t make it more or less true.  Until that box is opened it’s basically Schroedingers D!ck Pic

Morris may very well be gone this year.  Interim coach?.....splash hire?.....just stop the bleeding?  I don't know.  But I do trust him when he says that this problem is not being swept under the rug.

It's not unreasonable to win against San Jose State and be able to decide upon a QB in the preseason and not play the merry-go-round all year.  It's not unreasonable to win against a Kentucky team that was playing a WR at QB and had better passing stats than your starting QB.  Better management of that game is an easy win.

Do those things and nobody is complaining.  I found most fans to be extremely reasonable going into this season.  All most wanted was improvement.  There has been more of the same and now you have recruits bailing and players transferring.  You want to wait another 3 years???

Chad Morris doesn't have it.  Morris = Larry Porter

HY just might have a plan.  Yesterday I was told by a hometown friend and big money manager in NWA that several millionaire donors are done and have expressed this sternly.  Apparently they were told to hang on that there were a few ideas being tossed around.  Take it for what it's worth.  I don't run in the same circles down here in Tampa that I used to up in Arkansas, but you can ask Irwin if most of what I am told is bs or not.....he knows.

Morris may very well be gone this year.  Interim coach?.....splash hire?.....just stop the bleeding?  I don't know.  But I do trust him when he says that this problem is not being swept under the rug.

I'm just not understanding why a coach that is regarded by MANY including Dabo Sweeney and others in the coaching profession who say Chad Morris is a coaching genius and has high respect in the field.

My opinion is, he gets let go, resigns, fired....he moves on to something else and is highly successful.

There are coaches who are great assistants but not great head coaches.

Norvell? Mack Brown?

If Mack Brown wasn't so old, I'd be intrigued by the thought of bringing him here.

Donations get tickets. Ticket holders are loyal fans. Calling them suckers is cheap.

Nah, buying tickets doesn't put anyone at the top of the pyramid of fanship. Come to think of it, there is no pyramid of fanship levels. Fans are fans. Others are just smart enough not to dump money into a bad product.

You guys bring in a POS coach and you will lose the fan base big time. You will be the biggest laughing stock in all of football at every level of football. Your negativity is the leading factor if the program fails. Take that to the bank.  :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke:

People could care less about Arkansas football outside of the state.

Usually when Pork shows up with this type of thread the noise level in the AD's office from big money guys is getting loud enough that people in the hallway start hearing it.

Usually when this talk shows up on Hogville we are a year away at least from a coaching change.

Usually "buyout" is the big reason the coach get's another year.

Often, for cosmetic reasons, a coach with a huge buyout will be allowed one year to replace his staff and show significant improvement.

It will be interesting to see if this situation plays out the same way I've witnessed in the past.

That being said, I've never seen the program this low and I've not seen how HY would address this exact situation.  I do like what I've seen from HY in his coaching hires to this point, so if we ever get to the point of hiring a new football coach I'm optimistic.  But heck, I'm an optimist until I'm not.

I do hope Pork and LZH have accurate sources.

I would be ok with Morris right now if it was clear that our roster is just not talented enough right now. If we needed more time to recruit and develop players and implement a system, I'd be willing to give him more time.

But that's not why we lost to San Jose State or Kentucky. We lost because our coaching staff does not have the ability to mentally prepare our players to win or execute a game plan to win the game. Its coaching we are 2-4, instead of 4-2.

Lot easier to say I'm not donating money than to say here is a $hit ton of money go have fun...

Absolutely. The issue is who will pay any buyout not ongoing donations they normally pay.

My opinion is, he gets let go, resigns, fired....he moves on to something else and is highly successful.

What's the difference between being let go and fired?

And we can let go of the fiary tale he will resign. He isn't going to do that.


Also Michael Scott was an amazing salesman but a horrible boss. Maybe morris is just a great OC and horrible coach.
