This will never happen in a million years, but, damn, I’d sure love to see it purely for the extra-curricular entertainment value.
According to former Tennessee assistant Doug Matthews on Nashville radio yesterday, Arkansas officials have spoken to his former boss Phillip Fulmer about the vacant head coaching job. He doesn’t know how serious they got, but there have been discussions between them:
“I know Phillip has had conversations with them,” Matthews told the radio show. “And when I say with them, all that is going to take place behind the scenes.
“But everything I’m hearing from Arkansas is the spring game, I think, is this Saturday. ‘Let’s get through spring. Let’s see where we are.’ But I think they’ll either go with a guy that they’ve got on the staff or they’ll bring in someone to be — caretaker’s the wrong word — but bring someone in who has been through it all before.
“If there is a place for Phillip, that will be the place.”
Doughnuts, subpoenas and Spurrier’s catty comments… I’ve missed ’em all. Throw in a fan base that knows its way around a FOIA request, and you’ve got a heady brew for blogging. Unfortunately, it sounds way too good to be true.
