I still love the Arkansas fight song... But Mooch is the man... Go Razorbacks!

Meanwhile yet another former reported candidate for the Arkansas job, former Tennessee HC Phil Fulmer, says he has not been in contact with the school about replacing Petrino, but did not sound like he was shooting down the idea of coaching the Razorbacks.
"When I left Tennessee, I was asked if I would coach again, and I said I would consider it if it was at a place where I could compete for a championship," Fulmer said. "Arkansas does qualify as that kind of place, as there is a very solid foundation there."
It any of the above stories are true, then you can't fault Arkansas for aiming high when it comes to replacing Petrino. On the other hand, such purported attempts to land a big-name coach will only lead to disappointment and grumbling among the fanbase when a lesser talent is finally named as head football coach.
