Obviously. Arkansas has nothing to offer. No money. No facilities. No fans.

You showed us.

If we're talking B12 coaches, I'm just hoping that Arkansas doesn't get Briles or Gundy. I think either could kill it at Arkansas, and with minimal turnaround time.

As for Patterson, the rumor in Texas has always been that the oil families in Fort Worth have taken care of Patterson off the books with oil royalties, and it would take a substantial amount of money to make it worth his while.

And I've heard that, too. But they're just that - rumors.

I don't think we'll be lucky enough to land him, but Arkansas is unquestionably a better job, IMO.

You could make a pretty good argument that Arkansas is the 5th best job in the SEC west ahead of only the two Mississippi schools.
can i get some hog fans to rank/tier the coaching jobs in the SEC west? i'd like to hear what yall think the pecking order is. base it on whatever you'd like, preferably not your bias the world revolves around hog football. serious question. no flame.

Well as far as if I was going to coach somewhere

Tennessee- great tradition, money, stadium, fan base. It's a great job. They've shown patience with Dooley and might need to show some more with the new coach though.

Arkansas and auburn is a tough one though. Auburn has tradition, probably better talent but it is close at this point after the attrition. Arkansas gets you a crazy fan base, but no meddling boosters that seem to bring looming sanctions to the program.

Current conditions.

1. Texas A&M - Ridiculous recruiting base. No long term history of continued success, you win big you become a god. Enormous endowment, oil $ boosters, getting out from under the thumb of Bevo, huge student body, an hour from Houston, hour and a half from S.A., 3.5 from DFW.

2. LSU - Ditto on recruiting base. Clear cut #1 school in the state, crazy fan base, only a recent history of big success which has created a mini monster, Les Miles could be an easy act to follow by not being so weird and winning.

3. Alabama - Generations of dirty business has the boosters ready to do whatever is needed, they set the bar with cheating behind the scenes. Ton of in-state talent, right in the middle of the best recruiting region, tradition to sell, crazy fricks willing to screw everything up at any moment diminishes the job for me. Everything you could want, Alabama would make happen.

4. Arkansas - Clear cut #1 in all things Arkansas. Willingness of fans and boosters to reach the glory levels of the 60's-80's. Can run an entire state if wanted. Recruiting would be a challenge but has shown the ability to recruit nationally, fan base is one of the most loyal in the country. Tons of facilities already in place, lots of room for improvement in local recruiting bases, ground could be made up but would have to really work it.

5. Auburn - Just too much working against you at Auburn. When the BOT were all in on doing it dirty it gave you fighting chance against Bama and the rest of the SEC. If Aubie has to go clean, they just don't have the drawing power in any phase of the program to be at the top for a sustained period.

6 MSU - The minorities of the state tend to prefer MSU from my observations. OM and MSU pull each other apart more than anything else. For a small state with scarce resources and every one else coming in to pluck players I wouldn't want to coach at either Mississippi school. I think MSU has more room to grow but would not be a cushy job by any means.

7. Ole Miss - Thank God for Mississippi. Lots of stigma to overcome, but more so lots of hurdles. A small poor state that divides its resources is like the BBQ trailer taking on PF Chang's. It's just a different realm of competition and the economics and realities of the world will keep Ole Miss from becoming a national power again. OM is a stepping stone at this point.

Auburn will have a full roster in 2013. As it is right now, there are 78 scholarship players with only 13 seniors.

Means Auburn can't even sign a full class without more attrition.

C'mon man! That's just a stupid statement. In a million years, I would have never thought Arkansas would lure Petrino away from the Falcons...but they did. If the man hadn't shite where he ate, there's little doubt that program would be a perennial bowl team. Now, those are facts.

Hmmm...now that I think about it I do like how Arky's AD hurt my least favorite football team last time. If they do end up screwing Baylor, TCU or OK Lite by taking one of those coaches he is probably my favorite AD ever.

I take my comment back.

Not to mention, if you can win the SEC West, you are playing for 'Ships. Most football coaches want to come make their bones.

TCU's entire team is pretty much freshman and sophomores right now, if he ever does want to leave, I don't see him leaving until he sees what he can do with those players when they are developed as juniors/seniors.

The fact TCU is bowl eligible this year is a miracle in and of itself. I don't see him abandoning this "work in progress" team and handing the unfinished business off onto someone else.

I do. TCU needed like 5 of them to finance their entire stadium up front.
