Clint Stoerner, former quarterback (96-99) and current radio personality was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated early Saturday morning in Fayetteville. Stoerner was also charged with violation of implied consent, meaning he refused to take a blood, urine, or breathalyser test to determine his blood alcohol content.

FTB:Nutt Era won’t survive Kentucky loss

From Robert Shields…

Houston Nutt will not survive this loss to Kentucky unless the Razorbacks go on another winning streak that includes Tennessee at Knoxville and LSU at Baton Rouge. That is the only way he returns as coach next season after what may have been his jump-the-shark game. Frank Broyles, with his last good firing already out of the way, will leave the duty to the new athletic director, who has no understanding of the nuances of Razorback football, and Chancellor John White. The politics of the firing will be entertaining and great for several columns with the result being an executive search firm recommending Alabama offensive coordinator and former Texas Longhorn, which ironically may be just what the doctor ordered to re-establish a recruiting stronghold in Texas, now absent since the fans ran off Ken Hatfield and Broyles moved UA athletics to the grand SEC.

Fan Unrest Getting Blogosphere Play

Many around the blogosphere are picking up on a couple of stories about Arkansas fan unrest over Houston Nutt. There appears to be a campaign to encourage people who want Nutt fired to wear black to Saturday’s North Texas game. Also, money is being collected to fly Anti-Nutt banners over the stadium for the rest of the season. They’ve collected enough to fly the first plane, also during the N.Texas game. Hog Blogger, Every Day Should Be Saturday, Fanblogs.com, and Losers with Socks have made note of the situation. With the way Arkansas fans have been “showcased” by ESPN this past year with the FOIA request, the lawsuit, and the reaction to the whole Springdale mess, I have little doubt the national sports media will eat this up next weekend.

Danny Nutt Banned From Coaching Booth
I didn’t realize that the NCAA had restrictions on who could be in the “Bench Area” or the coaches booth. D. Nutt, who was seen Saturday in the coaches booth, has been notified that he is no longer allowed in either area. The UA won’t be punished for the previous transgressions.

A Decade of Futility

I didn’t mention this in the post below but wanted it noted that for a decade the first SEC loss of every season has been followed by a loss in our very next SEC contest. Think about that. This is a crazy stat. Congrats Houston. I can’t say that your not consistent.
