    Yeah, I saw that. No problem. I wouldn't expect Fayetteville to be nice either.

    Stay in Athens, CSP!

    Go, Dawgs!

    We know that Pittman is an elite recruiter....but you have to think a significant part of his recruiting success is the program and Athens. Kind of recruits itself. Who the hell wants to go to Arky?

    Arkansas is a dumpster fire with an impatient fanbase and boosters. Why would CSP want to walk into that mess?

    Those of you who have 247 access does it allow you to view all programs? If so go check out HawgSports first week of Arkansas coaching search podcast. They start out talking about CSP

    Northwest Arkansas isn't like the rest of Arkansas, the MSA is approaching 600,000 people and its a really nice area infused with Walmart and Tyson money. Plus a ton of outdoors activities in the Ozarks.

    From what I've heard Pittman loved working at Arkansas and being close to family in Oklahoma but hated working with Bielema. It would be a risky hire but the players would probably like him a lot more than they liked Chad. He recruited a lot of 4* OL to Arkansas before and once he left the OL fell off a cliff and still hasn't recovered. I think he'll get considered but ultimately Arkansas can't afford to go with anyone that doesn't have head coaching experience IMO. Plus it would likely mean Jim Chaney as OC ?

    I remember a story about Pittman hosting a big-time OL on a visit to Arkansas and apparently Bielema either forgot or was out of town vacationing in the Bahamas when the recruit was visiting and never made time to meet him. Pissed Pittman off and the recruit ended up signing with another SEC team.

    If you read up a few posts you'll see that I like Fayetteville very much. You're right, that area of the state is vastly unlike most of the rest of Arkansas.

    I also like Little Rock. I've been there a good many times.

    I've not been everywhere in Arkansas but other than the NW and LR I've not been anywhere in the state I much liked.

    That's not to say I like all of any state I've been in other than Florida. /s

    Go, Dawgs!

    Will Muschamp maybe looking for a job soon. Before you say I’m crazy not talking about head coach Defensive coach. I don’t think he will ever be a good head coach but he’s been a good D-coach. Could do worse.

    Appears we're doing pretty well with what we have. LSU might want to consider him. Or Ala.

    Im hearing that if Kiffin takes the Arkansas job that the Pitboss will be his OL coach. Apparently people in the know have been told that if he takes the job it’s a done deal but he’s waiting to see what happens at FSU. Just thought I’d give an update on what I’m hearing in state

    That's a little hard to take seriously. Coaching championship contender to coaching bottom feeder for a lateral move is not something that would be attractive. IMO

    Look y’all, I’m praying it doesn’t happen and he stays at Georgia. I’m a Georgia fan that just so happens to live in Arkansas. I am just trying to relay what I am hearing from inside the state

    Sounds like wishful thinking. I have family in Arkansas. They tell me it's a necessity there. 😁

    This Pittman to Arkansas was first being thrown out as the HC, coming from the people in state.

    He is currently Associate Head Coach at UGA, and would be a downgrade or at best lateral move to go back to a lesser program (this was stated just above) .

    Now those people are saying OC under Kiffin, who i believe likes to throw the ball all over the yard. I may be wrong here, but Pittman doesn't seem like the type of potential OC to do that. Id see him as a run ball first and early and often type.

    This Arkansas and Pittman stuff is “for the hogs”. I have an Ark buddy who pays money on 247 to get info and he texts me every other day with their new candidate.

    Not happening here. Nothing to see here is my opinion.

    Well I’m glad there’s nothing to see here cause I don’t want to lose him. They are a much lesser program who believes they are a top 5 program in the nation. 2/3 of the main coaches they have looked at turned them down to either stay put or go “to a lesser” program. They don’t understand that no one wants to go there plus they have to full on rebuild and not make a splashy to contend. Again just relaying what I hear. Kiffin told them he reached out to an SEC OL coach that told him he would go with him. The AD of Ark has said he met with Pitman publicly. So just trying to stay informed. Don’t want it to be true at all
