    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    Even for Larry, I'd say that is a bad move. If he is successful at Southern Mississippi, he could probably have a better pick of schools. Arkansas isn't a bad place (for basketball) but the administration there is a disaster.

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    Shouldn't this be in the "General College" forum?



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    wow....I live here and I haven't heard that one. They passed on Tim Floyd and hired Heath which was a big mistake. This might not be that bad of a choice. Actually I'd love to see LE here in NW Arkansas.

    Good opportunity for Larry. Surprised a major conference school would be interested at this point.

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    No way...they start with Gillispie and now are going after Eustachy? Something is wrong with this picture...there are many better candidates out there than Eustachy and all of his baggage.

    It doesn't make sense to me either. Even if you ignore his baggage, it's not as if he's doing great at Southern Miss. Seasons of 10 wins, 11 wins, and 20 wins (16-11 vs D1 teams) usually doesn't get you major interest. Arkansas is a fine job, hope he gets lucky and gets it.

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    Also saw on ESPN's site that Memphis has given permission for Arkansas to speak with Calipari. I would think that Arkansas would have some appeal for either Calipari or Eustachy (both are currently coaching in a mid-major conference).


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    I'm shocked anyone would question his ability to win. If
    Arkansas hires him it's a great hire for them.......my god, it's
    Arkansas.....it's not Duke. Larry made some bad choices....but he's a winner.

    Yeah, to me Arkansas is a top 50 job. Great home court advantage as well.

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    I think it's the type of program that is willing to take a chance on somebody like Larry.

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    The admin at Arkansas is a mess, but I read somewhere that Broyles was finally going to retire this year, so it should get better. They have tons of money to spend.

    Re: Arkansas Rumor

    If Larry goes to the HOGS, will he hire Wayne Morgan as an Assistant to help with recruiting?

    If I were a head coach in a major conference, I would hire Wayne in a second. Larry, Steve Barnes, and Wayne back together again? :Smoking:

    Yeah, you're right..the athletic department is a mess here. But I don't see that it's such a bad move for LE. They really love their BB down here and I wouldn't be the least suprised that someone like LE could revive the Hawg program down here. If they hire him, I might just become a Hog fan.

    The biggest thing for Arkansas would be to get rid of Broyles NOW instead of this one year 'fare well' tour. This is the guy that has trashed Arkansas Athletics. They seriously need to 'clean the slate' down here much like ISU did. And I'm not so sure that LE wouldn't be a good hire
