    Altman to Arkansas

    According to foxsports.com, Dana Altman will be introduced as Arkansas' new head coach at a 5 pm press conference today.

    Man, I love seeing the Hawks twist in this wind - this will only make it that much more enjoyable!

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    That is great... this hawk coaching search is turning into the BVDV/Wayne Morgan fiasco. It has not yet reached the level of hilarity of their president search.

    I disagree. IMO, the media (Keeler) is really making this into something it's not.

    Is Iowa hurt by not having a president? You betcha.

    However, it's not close to the fiasco we had a few years back.

    When we were looking for our football coach, it took some time. No one was saying anything and there were a lot of rumors/speculation floating about. In the end, we did alright.

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    I'll bring this up once again just because I love to speculate...but what effect do you all think this will have on Kenton Walker's commitment?

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    I have no idea. Many speculate he went to Creighton over ISU because of playing time - so that wouldn't really change with Altman going to Arkansas.

    If that speculation is true, I would think he'd stay there. If not and he committed to Altman - who knows.

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    Intresting story. The cupboard looks a lot fuller at Arkansas than Iowa. Boy I never thought he'd leave Creighton....

    Now who???

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    Much of hawkeye nation will be happy with this. They have consistantly said that they "can do better" than Dana Altman.

    The list of potential candidates is shrinking...especially the list that has been discussed from Day 1:

    Pearl - No.
    Majerus - No.
    Lowry - No.
    Theus - No.
    Altman - No.

    Who is next?

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    Perhaps now Creighton will snatch away some of the coaching candidates that Iowa is pursuing?

    I get more pleasure from Keeler being wrong than the suffering of the Hawks.

    I think it is possible! IMO Iowa is higher profile, but Creighton is a better job.

    I think they will end up with Stallings from Vanderbilt. Not a bad selection either.

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    This was a best case scenario in my opinion. It might open up Walker again, and then we might be able to avoid Altman. That is the one guy that has really had McD's number. Good times!

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    Dana Altman's patience was definitely rewarded. In taking his name out of consideration for jobs over the years, he got a big one. Arkansas is one of the top 15 jobs in the country. He has to be thrilled.

    Re: Altman to Arkansas

    With this and the uncertainty of Kentucky/Florida/A&M/Michigan, the hawks look to be settling for scraps when this all shakes down.
