First, big shout-out to my guy still living the dream on campus. A lot of stuff is flowing in now.

Let's get to it. So Kelly hired a "hiring coordinator" and settled him in somewhere around February last year.

So basically Kelly drops a name or three, and this guy sets up interviews, background checks, you get the idea. Anyway he's got a logbook of several names Kelly interviewed either on the phone or in person.

But most notable on the list was Petrino himself. Pretty cool right ? But apparently the guy has one hell of a handshake deal at Arkansas for that HC spot. Very short. Very quiet. All this stuff will likely be talked about soon enough.

Seems Kelly was trying to gouge the frick out of other SEC schools . A few others came up. The Arizona OC bombed his interview. NDs QB coach came through.

In other news, something I found hilarious. Kiffin has gained quite a reputation for rampant tampering.

He's gone after Kyren to the point Kelly emerged from his office and jokingly asked everyone "is Kiffin trying to hire you guys too? Be honest".

The Nuss Bus is getting one hell of an NIL Powerade deal. Ink dries on that next Saturday I believe. Damn good for him.

More will come, I just have to stop procrastinating work. Got too excited to share.

There was a chance I was going to believe you, but that went away after I read this.

Completely shat the bed according to two people there. Kelly didn't care for his coaching style at all. Maybe just not the right fit for Brian Kelly.

So many phony insiders on this board. I wonder if it's the same losers with different accounts, or are there really that many sad people who get a weird validation from the attention.

Damn, it's been awhile since I heard that term

Everytime I hear it I think 28 years olds fighting with foam swords in a public setting somewhere

The Petrino part ruined a good troll job.

You need to show a little restraint. If the hook is too shiny no one will bite.

Petrino is classless. He will burn Arkansas to the ground to get that job. It's going to be painful to watch if you like Pittman. I don't know why he ever made that hire. I thought Petrino was going to do the same to A&M, but it didn't materialize, they must have been smart enough to withstand it. If Arkansas hires Petrino again, they get what they deserve.

Petrino the Usurper strolled right back into a situation where they would take him back in a heartbeat, he knows Pitt will be fired midseason and he'll be auditioning for the full time role during the back half of the schedule.

No troll. Kelly did his job and interviewed several people.

As for the rest, I'm not sure how NIL works, but when Nuss is the face of Powerade during the season, I want you to remember where you heard it first. As that's the only real way to prove it, I think?

I understood Jayden because of his California connection and high profile as a recruit, but Nuss would be a surprise. If you get that right, I'd be thrilled for him.
