You are confused son. Arkansas just needs a big time coach and they will be a national powerhouse in 3-4 years. We were well on our way with Petrino. We have better facilities and more money than any of the schools you named. NW Arkansas is beautiful and is the 2nd or 3rd fastest growing community in the USA. The only think UofA lacks is recruiting and a big time coach fixes that immediately.<quoted text>
The money is what was impressive, not the job. Arkansas will never be able to consistently compete with LSU, Alabama, Georgia, & Florida. Now that A&M is in the SEC they will only become stronger & will be hard to consistently compete with. Why would a coach of an LSU or Alabama or Florida or another top school that has a chance at a conference or national championship every season go at a school like Arkansas that will never be able to consistently compete for titles? Sure, they'll win 8, 9 sometimes 10 games a season every once in a while but that's not going to win you a championship. Good bowl games every year, maybe a conference championship game every 8-10 years but nothing special.
The Les Miles offer was fake. He just wanted a raise
