MIKE MASTERSON: Our Razorbacks

Woe, pig sooie

Where to begin? Let's start with the title. They're not "Our Razorbacks". Believe it or not, they are not the uniting force in Arkansas that they once were. State lines may exist on a map, but they are permeable.

You called this Bielema's fifth mediocre season? What do you consider a bad season?

Masterson, stick to the Buffalo River and Branson. You've failed miserably at national/world issues, and have done no better at sports. Stick to something you know.

Delta2, it appears that your issue is that you are just not either a Hog or Mike Masterson fan. If that is the case, so be it but Mike is right on with his comments both with regard to coach and athletic director---and fans all over Arkansas agree.

Your first sentence is certainly correct, dph815, but if I want sports, I'll go to the sports section.

Before Jeff Lomg is fired , he should be made to go to Bobby Petrino and get down on his knees and beg Petrino to come back to Arkansas. Then he should be fired. There could have been conditions made for Petrino to stay at Ark.After all his wife forgave him.Why couldn't Long?

Looks like Bielema's gonna' "tie" John L. Smith's enviable record of 4-8 after the next two games. Wow, can't the Hogs do better than that? Right now Kevin Sumlin looks like a good replacement.

Bubba, let's go through this one more time. Bobby Petrino made sure that his girlfriend/traveling mistress was hired over several other applicants (I don't know the exact number, maybe hundreds) for a job at a publicly funded university. Therefore, everyone of these applicants had a legitimate case against the university which they likely would have won and cost the UA and Arkansas taxpayers millions of dollars.

I really like Brett and his wife and new daughter. He is very amiable and has certainly led a clean program. But, it just isn't happening on the field. I won't be surprised if he gets one more year due to the rash of injuries this year and the competition for a new hire by other SEC teams, but I also won't be surprised if he is sent packing. But, other than our record (which is amusing to say) I like the guy. I wish him and Jen and there new little one all the best. They are good people.

Here's a thought D2. You could just not read Masterson's article(s).

Since Coach makes over 3 million dollars a year and that's just the head coach How much money does the football program bring in as revenue to the university? and is it worth it ?

D123, Masterson sure makes that tempting, but I often read things I disagree with. If I like it I say so. Same if I don't like it. Subscription paid for.
