A Boy Named Sooie: Another One Bites the Dust

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2007 at 10:16 AM

What's that smell?

I tell you what:  Grobe was dissuaded by something he saw on the hill, same as Altman.  I was so glad that he wasn't Tommy Bowden that I was willing to settle.  He would have been a transition guy.

This isn't about money or recruiting territory or fanbase or whatever other limits outsiders want to throw our way.  This is about people.  I'm not sure who the bagman is, but somebody's repeatedly gumming up the works.  Whether that somebody's in the BOT, the Broyles Center, or the Chancellor's office, this shit stinks. 

Now, I'm praying we can pick up a Venables or a Muschamp.  I'm still interested in Leavitt, but, because of his history of sticking with South Florida, I think he's far-fetched and may be a waste of our increasingly precious time.  All the big game seems to be out of sight.

Long's managing to keep a tight lip until right before he levies the offers, but I'm not sure I can take another ESPN update with the word "spurns" in the headline.

    I haven't even spoken to my friends. I ignored all the teary empty nonsense of postgame coverage. I didn't sign into Twitter for a week. Anyway, the game was on a loop in my head.

  • Where I stand on The Agreement

    Nobody has any reason to be the least bit disappointed with the job Bobby Petrino has done with the Arkansas Razorbacks. Still, I have my reservations about the document that shall henceforth be known as The Agreement.
