Per capita, Arkansas produces as many SEC players as Florida. The outliers are Mississippi and Georgia, which produce more (many more in the case of MS) recruits per capita than other SEC states. Arkansas is by far the least populous (2.9 million) state in the SEC. I don't know what is Kentucky's excuse.

Thanks, John. I feel for Paul Petrino and Coach Haynes, but you are absolutely right.

Very thoughtful article.  For the Vols' sake, I hope they take your advice.

 

But I don't think Jeff Long ever was a buffoon in the eyes of the Arkansaw faithful.  Not many really were ready to blame Long if he ended up hiring Sonny Dykes.  But he had put himself in a tough position with his vow to hire a sitting head coach with BCS experience.  That narrows the list considerably.  And Arkansaw has an inferiority complex (from a conference history of being Texas' little brother for 6 decades) that makes us all expect that we will be choosing from assistant coaches and mid-level universities.  

 

In our hearts we all know Long did the right thing in firing Petrino.  Now with the hiring of Bielema, I really do wonder if Jeff Long is the smartest guy in the room.

But Leconte may be the biggest elevation gain from base to peak.

Leconte is 6594'. Probably the 3rd or 4th highest in the East. But people who have hiked it say it is a tougher climb with better views.

LSU is looking for an easier W for the last game of the season. They figure on losing half the games they play against UA. If you are afraid of losing, you want to schedule a loss in the first half of the season, to have a chance at recovering in the polls before the final four are chosen. And a prime time win over A&M will help more if it's the last game of the season.

Armageddon is finally here. We will never win an SEC championship. Frank Broyles will be revealed to be a Russian spy. We now have the same colors as Arkansas State. Might as well just merge the schools. ASU has won the war. I curse you, Jeff Long! May you burn in eternal fire! This is how Hitler started. Look for the swastikas on the helmets! I'm burning my Confederate flag and cheering for Penn State! Hell, might as well cheer for Texas. At least they respect their colors. Even the Aggies know something about tradition. Black is not a color; it is the absence of color! What's next? Louisville Orange!?

And once we have a 9 game conference schedule, we can move Mizzou to the West and Auburn to the East, where they belong, and preserving traditional rivalries won't be such a problem.
