    Re: Arkansas closing in on Art Briles?

    Briles would be a Chizik-like hire. if RGIII had never gone to Baylor, he would have been fire by now. The only coach I fear is David Shaw from Stanford. He's going to be a good one. I also think Willie Taggert would be a good coach. The only problem with both of these guys is teaching a quarterback the west coast system.

    If the PTB at Arkansas think they want to replicate the TAMU offense then Briles would be a good hire. His offense would bring lots of excitement to Fayetteville although not sure how many wins.

    Stanford does not run the West Coast Offense. They run a traditional pro-style offense.

    Shaw is not going anywhere.

    As DD said, Shaw doesn't run the west coast system; however, how would an Arky QB struggle to learn a system similar to what they run now? Not like it would be going triple option to throwing the ball.

    Briles would be a great hire and I'd rather it didn't happen.

    Yeah me too, i don't think he's interested in Arky. I think he would be a more fit at Col.

    Well I hope the Hawgs get the Gus Bus, then we don't have to worry about Arkansas any more. Malzahn has almost gotten as far as Kiffin without really accomplishing anything. He would have been Tony Franklin Part 2 without Newton.

    Briles is a very, very good coach and a heck of a recruiter. I hope he stays at Baylor, no need for him to take over Arky.

    What's this report from ESPN that Arky offered Les Miles $27 million for 5 years? It occurred at the half time report of UNC - Indiana game.

    SportsByBrooks is apparently the first to have gotten word out about this, but a few other sources are picking up on it including ESPN and a newspaper in Louisiana.
    Although it would probably be best for us, I would honestly miss playing Les' LSU teams if he left for Arky. I doubt it would be the same. No way he would take the job anyway.

    I love the coaching carousel.
