the cuck Arkansas "media" drove his demise because their pussies were bleeding from having to be in the same room as a normal man during press conferences

...and one particular member of those mother frickers went without sleep for 4 days doing FOI requests and trying like shite to bring him down after the motorcycle thing


ironically, it was someone Jeff Long hated that did it


I just don't blame Jeff Long. Weak people who are scared to be open about the truth blame Jeff Long

oh, and trust me, I'm glad we've got Hunter now. Hunter is my Razorback hero

I don't doubt that all and the national media made him out to be the devil. I wanted to believe Petrino wouldn't bomb here but when I looked at what he did at Louisville then I changed my mind.

a local media guy driving the fagot Gus Malzahn chariot was the main culprit

Harry Rex himself is to blame for the pox on the Razorback program. Always spreading his black magic on this board.

I had a feeling in the past that someone wanted Petrino gone because he was the opposite of Nutt and had a dry sense of humor.

It was but he wasn't the same coach after getting fired. I remember one of my relatives was working at a mall and he was buying some clothes. This wasn't long after the firing and while he was checking out, his hands were shaking getting his card back. He say much but it looked like the firing got to him unlike the Atlanta situation.

That had more to do with Frabk Broyles and his daughter having cancer. He felt that in his early years that he should have cut him some slack and give him more time as his daughter was getting treatment in Tulsa. Either Frank misunderstood or didn't seem to care but it rubbed Nolan the wrong way. For the rest of his time at Arkansas, he wanted to make sure that Frank would never get the best of him and he would resist to the end. The same happened with the university getting sued as it he trying to bring him down with him. He lost in the courtroom because he couldn't prove that it was more than just a personal agenda.

This is news to me. Broyles offered him full payed leave and guaranteed him his job so he could spend time with Yvonne, she wanted him to continue coaching and he declined the offer. I don’t recall or find anything indicating this caused a riff between them, but I could be mistaken. Nolan was in his second or third year and stayed there an awful long time for there to had been this kind of problem.

This was from his book but it didn't go into full details. Nolan felt that Frank was giving him a hard time because it was a slower rebuild than what Arkansas was use to. Arkansas was going to play Arkansas State in one game and Arkansas was down big, he believed that had he lost that game then he would be fired.

Also he was waiting outside Frank's office and Ken Hatfield left his office frustrated because they were reviewing plays before a game. He told his frustrations to Nolan and Nolan said give me the plays and so he looked it over, he crumbled the paper in his hand and threw it in a trash can. He said that is what I thought of Frank Broyles.

RE: Nolan I always felt (as an outsider) that he was a great coach but a big prick and rarely, if ever, admitted his big mistakes.

He's not alone. That's the personality profile of a lot of the greatest coaches and leaders. You need to be a confident, disagreeable, SOB to be an effective leader who will seize control of a program, bend the players to your will, and drive away the distractions.

Nice people with agreeable personalities are just less likely to work.

I met him at the Bud Walton arena and he was nice. He still lives in Northwest Arkansas on his ranch.

Nolan used anger to fuel his teams because according to his book he had to fight a life that was harder for him to overcome than other folks had to endure.

While there was certainly some racial tension here, Nolan felt (rightly) that Houston Nutt was the golden boy in the athletic department despite being a terrible coach. Then he went into a televised press conference and dared the Athletic director to fire him. So Broyles did. Both of them had egos that couldn't be in the same athletic department. Broyles was the boss so Nolan goes. Had some good players recruited too.
