Haven’t We Seen This Show Already?

Tommy Bowden turned down Arkansas today to accept a contract extension with Clemson. As I made mention of with one of my Tommy Tuberville posts, and with the Expats feeling the same way, I feel I must admit that this really is reminding me of the Basketball Coaching Search. The Hogs tripped into a great find there and the odds of that happening again is slim. This would be funny if it was happening to someone else. Unfortunately it’s not. Where is Long headed next? I don’t think even he knows.

    Funny…I felt the same way. I’m praying we don’t become the laughing stock of the NCAA again becoming a circus show searching for a new football coach. Deja vu all over again…

    Why haven’t they called in a young, up and coming coach? Why haven’t they brought in Chris Petersen of Boise State? He’s s gonna be the next Urban Meyer. Petersen was voted as the best coach in the NCAA winning the Paul “Bear” Bryant College Coach of the Year award earlier this year in January. He was a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award, a semifinalist for the George Munger Coach of the Year Award and was the Region 4 Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. Petersen is 23-2 over the last 2 years, his team finished as the #5 team in the country last year, won its bowl game against Oklahoma in one of the greatest college football games ever played in the Fiesta Bowl, and this year is ranked #17 even after loosing his starting QB. Petersen is only 42 years old. All this in a state and a school that nobody wants to go to. He is doing all this with scrub players that nobody else wants! What could he do with quality kids, kids that want to play in the SEC?

    At least bring him in for an interview…Why haven’t Razorback officials at least called him? UCLA was looking at him, he turned them down. I want somebody young that will build a new tradition in Razorback football, I want a proven winner, I want to be in a BCS bowl. Go Hogs!
