was listening to BR radio in my car and he was on as a guest. Made a few interesting points.
-Big Ten historically bad during his tenure, 5 loss team in the Rose Bowl this year.
- Went 23-1 against the bottom four of the Big Ten, was under .500 against the other seven schools.
-Recruiting classes ranked in the 50's
-Wants to try to win games the same way Saban, Muschamp, Richt and Les do, which won't work at Arkansas because of the lack of talent in that state. Petrino's strength was the contrast with that style.
-No experience whatsoever south of Manhattan, Kansas. Says comparisons to Saban and Urban Meyer are ridiculous because a) Saban is a once in a lifetime coach and b) Urban was at Florida which almost recruits itself unlike Arkansas who needs someone dynamic.
I'm not sure I agree with him (I have been positive about the hire) but he did bring up some interesting points I hadn't thought of.
