They have a 18 million buy-out to Taggart..  Didn’t bother them, they want to win..   on Twitter sounds like they are going after Urban

They’ll make a run at Urban Meyer.

Actually they’re going to get Bobby Petrino....

So much for "you can't fire a coach after two seasons."

By the way, you think we have attendance problems? Look at Florida State this year. 10 minutes before kickoff for the Louisville game, where the number of tickets sold was 46,540. The stadium holds just shy of 80,000 people.

Fired 21 games in. Same number as Aggie Chad here at Arkansas. He actually beat a couple power 5 teams, unlike Aggie Chad.
They actually still have some pride left in that program.

In the USA Today article about his firing, the whole second half of the piece was all about how Arkansas football is also a disaster.

Norvell is not the top target.

They'll make Urban Meyer and Bob Stoops quietly tell them no.  I bet Norvell is their first serious candidate.  Eventually someone is going to want to see what Mark Stoops can do outside of Kentucky as well.  I think Clay Helton could have a good run with a change of scenery.

And then there's Briles, who we know would jump at the opportunity, and Petrino, who may or may not even want a head coaching job.

I'd suspect Rhule or Matt Campbell are at the top of the list. They have a huge buyout, but after this move I don't think money is an issue. They realize keeping Taggart would actually cost more in lost revenue and fan base. Hopefully Arkansas realizes the same thing.

I think you have an issue with the truth.

12 out of 14 seasons he won 8 or more games.
One of the most winningest coaches yet he's a failure according to you.
Your deceit and hate is disgusting.

Reminds of liberals who make things up about someone because they don't like them.

He seems like one of those guys that can win anywhere, and has a good record of taking over programs that are a bit of a mess as well.  I could see him taking USC then PSU going after Rhule.

Because he is a proven winner.
1 bad season out of 14 is an outlier.
People with common sense will look at it that way.

I wouldn't sign him long term though that's for damn sure because he has a tendency to abruptly leave or do something stupid.

And no he is not the reason we sucked after he was fired that's just something stupid people say.
We sucked because of who we replaced him with.
