i have no clue as to who the next hog head coach will be, but wally hall is the last person i would expect to have better information. anyone regularly exposed to his 'work' can attest that it is nothing better than a hodge-podge of his fact free opinions, pique for perceived slights, admiration for some jeebus loving jock, and whatever outhouse rumors he can swipe off the net, all of it in such pathetic form it wouldn't be tolerated in a middling high scool rag.
Thomas Murphy of The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette believes Arkansas AD Jeff Long has finally found his man. And he is a man. He’s 40 (and then some):
Gundy has a career mark of 66-35 at Oklahoma State, his alma mater. He built the Cowboys from a four-win team in 2005 to 12-1 last season before falling back to 7-5 this year.
If he leaves OSU for Arkansas, Long will have succeeded in landing a “name” coach for his program.
UPDATE – Now here’s one you don’t see everyday. While Murphy is tweeting that Gundy’s the guy and others are saying he could be introduced tomorrow, longtime Arkansas Democrat-Gazette columnist Wally Hall nixes his co-worker’s claim with this tweet:
If you needed further proof that coaching searches are impossible to follow in the ridiculous age of Twitter, you don’t get much better than this.
If the announcement is to come today, then it sounds like Hall’s in the camp of folks who believe Boise State’s Chris Petersen is moving to Arkansas.
Oh, to just take a Xanax and wake up when all this nonsense is over.
UPDATE II – And here’s the latest from Murphy as he walks back from what he tweeted earlier:
And on and on it goes.
