    Arkansas Pigs looking for new BB coach?

    Broyles and Heath are meeting today. There's a certain amount of unhappiness in pigland about the BB program. It is possible that Arkansas could soon be another competitor in the new coach chase.

    Too bad Mike Anderson probably doesn't want the job anymore - It'd be nice to see Missouri twisting in the wind again.

    Re: Arkansas Pigs looking for new BB coach?

    Why is Gillespie's name mentioned in about every coaching search? Does he want out of College Station? He has taken A&M to prominance...why leave?

    Re: Arkansas Pigs looking for new BB coach?

    Gillespie must have some connection to Arkansas? I don't get it, they just ran a basketball coach who got them to the NCAA and won 21 games in a competitive conferences. Plus, Broyles is a certified nut.

    Arkansas has more money than anyone else. A newer arena. Huge basketball tradition and the campus is awesome. My bro went to school there.

    I highly doubt Arkansas has more money than Texas A&M. They print money there they have so much.

    Arkansas has the most money, even more than Texas. They have Walmart and Tyson Chicken as there doners. They bring in close to $100 million a year. It's not even close to anyone else the amount of money Arkansas has. A@M is second in there own state. Which still is a ton.

    Re: Arkansas Pigs looking for new BB coach?

    There's a town down in Arkansas that is building a $35 million dollar HIGH SCHOOL football stadium, if I recall what I read correctly. The hillbillies have mucho dinero, they just don't go to the dentist.

    Re: Arkansas Pigs looking for new BB coach?

    I've heard Bill Self to Arkansas. Gillespie to Kentucky...and while we're at it, here's my predictions:

    Lon Kruger to Michigan
    Jeff Bzdelik to Colorado
    Billy Gillespie to Kentucky
    Roy Williams to Iowa (Coach K as head assistant)

    Re: Arkansas Pigs looking for new BB coach?

    I keep hearing Gillespie can see that Arkansas is an easier place to win the Big One from. Actually, there are only so many coaches who have wonm in D-1, can coach, and can recruit.


    The big Hawkeye Cedar Rapids Hawk beat writer was on 1620 today said they want a proven recruiter at Iowa. They are not sure Altman fits the bill. They hired Alford thinking he could recruit Mich and Illinois stars and it did not occur. He did land Adam Atom Bomb on the bounce. He said when Tom Davis left, Iowa lost Collison. When Floyd left, we lost Kirk Herr Heinrich. When WM left, we lost PJ. Coaching changes do set a program back for awhile.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    A&M's Arena is new with in the last 10 years, and they have a brand new practice facility. If Gillespie leaves, it's not because of facilities, or money.
