Everyone is upset, but we've been upset since 1992 for the most part. It's using that reality thing all the "realists" like to use to justify their negatives.

Yep.  No one is  happy.  I'm sure not.  Firing him now doesn't put us in any better position.
I'm probably less confident in coach B than at any point.  Still, who are you going to get with a better pedigree, who's had more success?  No more extensions, get the buyout down..  If it's not better in 2, adios with a smaller buyout and full recruiting classes for his successor.  Personally, I hope he turns it around.

Yep, patience is needed by all, either it gets turned around, or we get a new coach.

I guess you're a bandwagon fan? I guess you're not an alum, you don't enjoy going back to the campus, tailgating with old friends from school, cheering on your alma mater?

These kinds of comments are just as stupid as the "well I am a season ticket holder.....so I have the right to call shots.." comments.

Who gives a crap if someone is an alum or not. That state university is funded through every tax payer in this state.

But not the athletic department. The point is it means something to an alum to go back to his alma mater, something you obviously don't understand. Not every alum feels this way, but lots do.

You don't have anymore skin in the game than anyone else rice. You want everyone to think you are some bigshot because you say you know somebody. Get real, you have no more knowledge or skin in the game than AW, Cuck, Randy or myself...and your opinion means no more or less than ours. Quit trying to convince everyone how and when they should support the program...

I support the program by purchasing shirts occasionally and cheering them on from home. I have a decal on my truck and a hog license plate. And that is enough. And that should be enough. I didn't know there were "levels of how important a fan is".

Exactly. I was a season ticket holder since 1981 to 2002. Couldn't take HDN anymore...when CBP came in I got back in and am still in. I don't brag about it on here...because it means nothing. I over pay for a PP just because...I have friends that have season tickets also...I see them at games...WOW! I saw a friend at the game...I tailgated...Oh boy! Sheeeezzz O Pete...what does it matter? I don't spend a ton of money, my opinion doesn't matter...but I DON"T HAVE TO RENEW MY SEASON TICKETS or PP...that is my choice. Will the foundation care...no, they won't...but that still doesn't mean I am not a hog fan because I don't tailgate with my friends and sing CBB's praises regardless of the outcome of games...I'm with ya AW...

I'm a student at the university. I forked over the money to go to TCU, Arlington, Mizzou, and Charlotte this year. I was at 10 of the 13 games.

I'm still not more important than anyone else.

I think rice has little man syndrome, that's why he feels the need to brag about being a season ticket holder and tailgating with his frat boys. How big a boy are ya Rice? RD Mercer

Don't tell some of your fellow "alumni brethren" that. You'll be exiled.

I'm a graduate of the UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS at Monticello. A sister school of the "mother ship". I guess I'm a second tier level of importance when it comes to calling the shots. MY OPINION MATTERS to ya know.

All UOFA SCHOOLS LIVES MATTERS.

Now, all this said, I want to believe that Bielema has it in him. I'm willing to give him another year to show something. He'll return a second-year starter at quarterback and experience at most positions.

Same here. I want him to succeed. I hate coaching turnover. Especially when we have one that seems to like it here. But I just have a gut feeling he and Jen will be looking elsewhere once baby Bielema is born.

there are more fans like you in this state than those that donate to the cartel (razorback foundation). The state wide passion for the Hogs transcends socio-economic boundaries. Rice exemplifies the NWA "wine and cheese, I'm better than you, I know more than you" crowd. Aren't you on the wrong side of the state for that rice?
