Terrible hire for Arkansas. Texas pipeline is all but over.
Instant improvement for Arkansas right here. I'm surprised they went for him though.
Does anyone know whether the compensation package for the Arkansas job includes a motorcycle, along with a hoochie mama?
I'll also be interested to see how his penchant for running up the score goes over in the SEC.
Assuming, of course, that he has the opportunity to do so...
Wisconsin's Sagarin SOS ranking under CBB:
2006: 82 record: 12-1
2007: 57 record: 9-4
2008: 52 record: 7-6
2009: 64 record: 10-3
2010: 66 record: 11-2
2011: 44 record: 11-3
2012: 38 record: 8-5
He dominates when the SOS is worse than 60th (.846) but not so great when playing a SOS higher than 60th (.603).

Good resume'. Good hire for Arky. Surprised Wisconsin let him go.

I am in Milwaukee this week and the general consensus around my office was good riddance. Comments included:
Amazing how little they know about the SEC up here. One sports reporter said "I'm shocked - the Arkansas job has only been open a week. I might understand that from a fan but you would figure a reporter would keep up with college football. Oh well - it's not the Packers so probably not noteworthy to this bunch.He was 4-4 this year, he is lucky to be in the Rose Bowl
He coasted on what Alvarez left him
He has never been a very good game coach.

Some people see Steve Spurrier as slipping because of his record at SC, but when you look deeper you see that he's doing some of the best coaching of his life.
Of course the Badgers are going to rip him for bailing, that's human nature. I believe it's a solid hire.

Definitely did not see this coming. I love watching the coaching carousel...it's always so interesting to see who gets hired. I wonder who Wisky goes after now.
You can bet he'll go after Tenpenny. I hope we hang on to him, though with the guys we have coming in, I'm not too worried.
