GrandDad...familiarize yourself with the principle of relativity. Then all of this will make sense to you
Success is relative to where you are. Do you think a school like Vandy or Kentucky wouldn't call back to back 10 win seasons successful? Well Arky has little history of being a powerhouse so 10 win seasons are success for them.

- Liked Petrino as our coach and the direction he had the Hogs headed. - Never thought Petrino was the only coach who could do well at Arkansas. - Never thought Petrino was irreplaceable. In fact I’ve always operated with the mindset that NOBODY is irreplaceable in any type job. - Disliked the situation Petrino put the Hogs in and he should have been fired. - Really like the Bret Bielema hire and think he will do very well at Arkansas.
Got to hand it to Long on two accounts. 1. Making such a great hire 2. Keeping it under wraps for some time now. Don't think this wasn't in the works for several weeks now and perhaps longer.
