    Speaking of which, don't ever forget this:

    Nutt Turns Down Nebraska

    Nutt said he never accepted the job and he was flattered at Nebraska's offer, but that it was best for him to remain at Arkansas. He informed Nebraska officials Friday night that he wasn't taking the job.

    "For six long years we've poured our heart into this program, and we feel that our work isn't finished," Nutt said. "I know we can do better. So many times I think we're not far off."

    Nebraska offered Nutt the job Friday, but Arkansas made a counteroffer. Details were not announced, but Nutt said the contract was close to $1.5 million per year, which would almost double his salary, with a few more details to be worked out.



    They're going to take care of me," Nutt said.

    Nebraska athletic director Steve Pederson said Saturday the head coaching job hasn't been offered to anyone yet and that he simply wanted Nutt to come to campus for a formal interview.

    Pederson also said that reports Nutt was offered a package worth up to $2.5 million were false.

    "I about fell out of my chair when I read that," Pederson said.


    Nutt confirmed that there had been no offer on the table.

    "He didn't actually ever offer me the job, but I'm protecting him a little bit, too," Nutt said. "Things would have gotten very difficult if I had gotten on that plane."


    ==================

    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    I love all the MASH references, as it is my favorite TV show. I still watch the reruns every time they’re on!

    The reality is that historically Rutgers has not been a competitive program and now being in the B1G East even less so. We all know it is about the money from the B1G, but Rutgers would be a better fit in the AAC. As a member of the B1G Rutgers is at best a 6-7 win program. They will battle Maryland and Indiana every year to avoid the cellar.

    The B1G brought in Rutgers for one reason - to get the Big Ten network into the millions of homes in the Northeast. Bringing in Rutgers has been very beneficial, financially, to the conference.

    Yes...and also to be a patsy for the rest of the conference. It's all about the Benjamins and TV viewers...

    I think many just don’t understand the markets. It’s why we constantly have a discussion about “why is Mizzou in the SEC?”

    Re: 2019-20 Coaching Carousel

    I realize why The B1G wanted Rutgers and it certainly makes sense from a financial standpoint. It also means teams like Rutgers and Maryland, who will never be able to compete in the B1G, will have to go through the coaching carousel every 2-4 years. If those program's accept the fact that they cannot realistically compete and can settle most years with 6-7 wins and a trip a low level bowl game then they avoid coaching turnover. Somebody like Butch Jones ought to be able to do that occasionally.

    I think most posters on here thought Mizzou was a bad fit for the SEC, that it was more in line with the B1G which was what Mizzou wanted according to most media sources at the time. My only remaining complaint is the SEC needs to swap Mizzou for Auburn, geographically and from a a strength of divisions standpoint.

    I think that Auburn and Mizzou switch wouldn’t be the end of it. I think us and Vandy would be part of it as well. The IB makes too much money.

    Mizzou is a really big pickup for the SEC due to St. Louis and KC markets.

    LSU would love that idea.
