    Have you seen Arkansas recruiting the last two years and the current group of players? Not exactly a who's who, especially for a team that has won 21 games the last two seasons.

    Butch Davis is a great recruiter and would be stability to a coaching staff and program that needs it. I don't know if he gets the job or if is the best hire, but it would send the message that Arkansas is past the Petrino firing.

    Waiting till December will be the worst mistake Arkansas make, even above hiring the wrong guy. The wrong guy in the long-term may be able to solidify the team currently and have a great season. But as it stands, the current head coach at Arkansas is a cast off from Jim Tressel's ohio state staff and we saw how that worked for OSU last year.

    This is what most Arkies miss. Petrino's recruiting has sucked the past two years when consider their record and the NFL system they run. Throw in a third straight year or bad recruiting and their program is going to fall off a cliff after this season.

    It would not be far-fetched at all if we were stuck in the Big East. However, I don't see it now in that we're in a conference that will afford us with the means to match or exceed whatever Arky offers.

    Arkansas' recruiting always sucks if you base it on rankings. The last two years success was built off guys who came from $#@!ty recruiting classes. The '09 class was the only decent class (15th) according to rivals, yet hardly any of the 4 and 5-star players even contributed to this last season.

    That's where the loss of Petrino will hurt. He was an excellent evaluator and developer of talent.

    Bleh. "Excellent talent evaluator" is one of the most overused bull$#@! descriptions with college coaches. Arkansas currently has 126 scholarship offer out for '13. Doesn't seem like very much evaluating going on there to me. Throw whatever you can against the wall and hope for the best. Sometimes you get lucky while most of the time you are just very average like everybody else. The only way to really secure the status of best talent evaluator is to apparently go the Alabama rout of offering everybody who breaths (they currently have around 100 offers out), oversign, identify the good ones though years 1 or 2, then figure out a way to dump the rest.

    Most of those guys he built around were 4 stars or highly recruited 3 stars. Mallett was a 5 star, although he wasn't really a recruit.

    Arkansas has had six 4 star recruits the last 2 years combined. Once the Tyler Wilson's and Knile Davis' (4 stars), leave, Arkansas gets very thin, Petrino or no Petrino. You'll get killed in the SEC!SEC!SEC! with that.

    Last year's #5 team started eight 4 or 5 star players. This year's team, which is expected to be preseason top 10 will likely start six to seven 4 or 5 star players. Two of those are seniors.

    Wilson's backup is a four star. If Davis leaves early, the projected starter in 2013 is a 4 star.

    It has never been a roster stocked with highly rated recruits. It's been a handful of 4-5 stars and a bunch of good 3 stars. Who knows if the 2013 team will be good or not, but the roster makeup won't be much different.

    Didn't Jimmy Johnson basically tell Arkansas to $#@! off when they hired Hatfield back in the day? Can't see him going there.

    Jeff Long isn't going to hire Butch Davis.

    Arky needs to suck it up and hire an interim.

    arkey

    I could see Tubs leaving Lubbock and heading up to the hills. I could see Tech getting who they really want as their head coach, Dykes Jr. aka: Sonny Dykes. I could see La. Tech in a hell of a mess if that happens. Tubs knows the SEC, was successful at 'Ole Miss and Auburn, and brings a good knowledge of defense, even if he doesn't know how to hire the right defensive coordinator recently. I'm guessing he'd hold on to the current arkey staff until December too.

    http://footballscoop.com/news/6211-arkansas-plans

    Late last night we communicated with two representatives of Arkansas and this morning we have spoken with coaches involved in this process. Based on those interactions we feel highly confident in the following.

    Discussions with Garrick McGee have ended. Representatives told us that Jeff Long has made the decision that having a full process after the season was better for all parties involved....adding that asking any current head coach to take this position at this time wasn't the right thing to do.

    Arkansas will stay in house, appointing one of their current assistants as interim head coach for this season.

    Arkansas has their Spring game on Saturday and then their assistants are on the road on Monday. Based on what we were told last night and the timing mentioned here, we're speculating that the announcement of the interim will occur at or after the Spring game (possibly as late as Monday; but we don't think they'll wait that long).
    Appears they are not going to make a big splash.

    Probably. But again, that outcome was the obvious and most logical decision to begin with.

    Say what you want about Arkansas-- like, they're a bunch of toothless racist redneck inbred $#@!sucking methhead crack smoking $#@!gobblers-- but Jeff Long continues to impress. You don't really think of "Arkansas" and "doing the right thing" in the same sentence often, but he's handled this entire situation well.

    They're not making a big splash because none of the splash hires want the job. IMO, they will ultimately have to settle, a la aggy.

    Yeah, except he hired Petrino in the first place, and if he didn't know Petrino's a $#@!sucking weasel, then he should have known. Yeah, he's done it right since $#@! met fan, but this is truly his mess to clean up.

    I get the distinct impression that Arkansas has been following advice of counsel since this broke. The final act may be Long facing the consequences of signing off on (1) hiring a known dirtbag, and (2) actively increasing said coach's autonomy past what university policy would normally allow, e.g. by putting his John Han$#@! on a request for variance from AA policy.

    Long on twitter:
    Have seen and heard media reports re: P Carroll, while I respect him, I have not sought him out, spoken to or offered him a position.
    And official statement:

    “As we near the completion of spring practice, I wanted to provide an update regarding our progress in naming a head football coach at the University of Arkansas. While we have initiated a review of potential candidates both inside and outside the program, the process remains ongoing and will extend beyond the spring game weekend. While this process is a priority, it is imperative we take the time to identify a leader for our program who will provide the best opportunity to build upon the recent success of our nationally ranked program on and off the field.

    “I appreciate the tremendous leadership our assistant coaches have provided this spring. They continue to serve in the best interests of our student-athletes and the Razorback program.

    “My hope is that by sharing this information today, we may focus our attention this weekend on supporting our coaches and football student-athletes at the spring game. I hope you will join me at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Saturday to show our support and cheer on the Razorbacks.

    It is John L Smith as interim. Previously HC at Louisville (where Petrino was his OC) and Michigan State. Recently an assistant at Arkasnas before leaving to be HC at Weber State. He approached Arkansas about doing a one year interim deal if needed.

    Obviously Long couldn't get a good head coach at this time. Smith is good because there will be no pressure to hand the job over to him if Arkansas had a good season.

    Would have much preferred a good head coaching hire, but if its interim, this wasn't a bad call. Plenty of head coaching experience, has coached with 8 of the 9 assistants over his career, knows the players, was Petrino's mentor for years, etc.

    There was never any realistic options for hiring a long term coach. ANY coach that would be willing to dump his players and team during spring ball to go to Arky is a coach you don't really want. Not sure why anybody thought they wouldn't hire a temp to begin with.

    John L Smith though? REALLY? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA

    That dude SUCKS......he better hope the talent bails him out

    I'm trying to think on any planet where it would be a good idea to have John L Smith run a program, even if it's just for one year, after the bed he $#@! in East Lansing and the ass he made of himself repeatedly on national tv?

    Oh, Arkansas is looking for a coach?

    To every poster that I debated with on this thread about whether to hire a full-time coach or go the interim route, I was wrong, you were right. Clearly, I underestimated the Piggie ability for self-immolation as I never considered that a coach like John L. Smith would be a serious candidate. I really felt that if worse came to worse, they would just hire Alum Butch Davis and be done with it.

    If John L. Smith is seriously the best Arkansas can do, just shut the program down now and concentrate on basketball.

    I don't think you were wrong in principle.....it's just the timing was impossible. You can't lure a top candidate away from a job in spring ball, it's just not going to happen. There was never a realistic option of getting a good coach. Their ONLY option was to go interim and look in December.

    This. Once you come to the reality that you're not going to hire a good HC in April, you just have to focus on the season at hand.

    And unfortunately, there weren't any great interim options on the current staff. JLS, while not great at MSU, at least has HC experience. Knows the players. Knows the staff. And will let the coordinators do their jobs.

    He's an 8 month placeholder, not a long term option. And best of all, he knows it.
