Disable texting function, maybe?

Posted By on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 12:50 PM

When writers passed through Ole Miss on the SEC tour, one asked head football coach Houston Nutt if he could think of anything he should have done differently as head coach in Arkansas. He didn't mention telephone habits, pre-kickoff or otherwise.

Is there anything you would have done differently at Arkansas?

Houston Nutt: I probably wouldn't have hired a couple of people. I probably would have just stuck to my niche. (He hired current Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn from nearby Springdale High following the 2005 season).

....

Will it ever be the same for you when you go back to Arkansas to visit?

HN: I don't know. I have enough friends with my mom living there that I'll always go back. There are still people there that I'm very close with, guys like Jim Lindsey and Frank Broyles, who I still talk to. There are a lot of good people there, Warren Stephens in Little Rock, Rex Horne, who was my pastor at Immanuel Baptist Church. So I've got enough friends there that I'll always go back. What's difficult, and it goes back to what Phil Fulmer said (after he was fired at Tennessee), but you love the place so much, grew up there, played there, coached there and felt like, 'Boy, you've done nothing but give it your all,' so it still hurts a little bit.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
