    Twitter is saying Fran met with Arkansas, say it cant be so. Sounds like Little Petino and Nevada coach are also candidates.

    Is Arkansas really a better job than Iowa or Houston? If you can't get Chicago corridor talent to Iowa you aren't going to be able to get deep south talent in Arkansas.

    Same thing it wouldn't be any easier to get talent to Arkansas than Houston. Arkansas glory years are almost as distant as Houston's too.

    There is no way in hell Arkansas is hiring Fran. Fran's next stop is at a mid major.

    Fran knows he can get Barta to pay him more money with this stuff floating around. Hopefully he gets a raise and a higher buyout.

    Barta better take a page from Kentucky and lock Fran down for life. He's just too valuable a commodity to let him just leave.

    If they met and that was leaked, Fran might be interested. I bet Barta is writing a new contract as I type.

    Well, Arkansas must like crappy defense, no-talent sons of coaches, and wives who get kicked out of press conferences. At least it's entertaining, if not successful.

    Barta's "To-Do" list for today...
    - Extend Fran to 2030 with $500K annual automatic raise and $15M buyout
    - Extend Kirk to 2030 with $500K annual automatic raise and $30M buyout...because Arkansas might go after the football coach too.
    - Send thank you letter to Arkansas AD for pointing out how important the Iowa coaches are to Iowa's athletic success.

    Administrative assistant "Mr. Barta, could I set up a meeting with Lisa Bluder and you for tomorrow, she's back after her elite 8 appearance and want to talk about the season and future?"

    Barta "um, who...oh yeah, that one....tell her we can connect in June or July"

    Admin Assistant "should I pull her contract so you can review it prior to the meeting?"

    Barta "Listen, hun,...I'm just real busy and in a hurry...could you call Tom Arnold and Ashton to see of they could ponybup a fee more million to add to Fran's contract I'm working on...and didn't spell 20 million buyout right?"

    Iowa better not let him go. He’s far too entertaining to make fun of for me. He’s a horrible coach and a jerk. Perfect fit for TOE.

    Fran has probably met with more than Arkansas. He just took a program like Iowa to the 2nd Round with a bunch of tavernhawks. He needs to strike while he can.

    Just checked out Arkansas's roster. Let's just say that they don't match the typical McCaffrey racial makeup of a team.
