Arkansas needs to throw the bank at Art Briles


I think he would do great things at Arky but I'm not sure they could out bid Baylor

I think we can outbid all but a few teams, but I'd be surprised if we got in a bidding war for Briles.

Baylor has resources to match Arkansas if it came to it. I don't think Arkansas wants to mess with his buyout. Starr will go after Arky like he did Clinton.

I don't want someone that doesn't give ANY shits about defense. But I don't see why we wouldn't be able to outbid Baylor. He's only making $2.5MM. I don't think they'd match $4MM when they're happy being a bottom dweller 90% of the time.

Arkansas can't afford Art Briles.

Petrino was making $1.5MM/yr more than what Briles is making.

And if UK beats UT next week, should they come after Joker? You do know they are 1-5 in conference before tonight.

Sorry we don't chase the Coach D'Jour. Stan Heath should have taught everyone to not hire the young hot name based off one game or one season.

Our sights are set for someone who can deliver long term sustainable success.

You don't want Briles. He lost 3 games with RG3 as a senior. It may be that he's at Baylor, but he still couldn't do much there (and got blasted by Sleepy Sherm repeatedly).

Arkansas needs to hire a coach who wants to build a killer defense. Can be an offensive guy as long as you lock up a great DC. But, I'd go after a guy similar to Pelini, Muschamp, etc. Is Kirby Smart that guy?
