Jeff Long doubles down on the strange.

According to reports, this is Bobby Petrino’s replacement at Arkansas.  He’s a cool customer.

It’s only for ten months, unless he wins the national title or something.  Maybe this is Long’s roundabout way of making the next coach look good.


UPDATE:  And here’s the topper.!/TheUpset/status/194544370182127616

Yeah, this is gonna go well.

    The name reminds me of an old Gator, John L. Williams, from Palatka.

    No pun in the title of the post, huh?

      first thing I thought of, too. LOL. I figured John L. Smith had hired hot blonde twins to replace Jessica Dorrell.

        Smith and Dorrell. It’s beginning to smell like Porker name-brand ham around here. After the film clip, I’d say the Smith brand is smoked.

    Strange or steady, could be either/or depending on perspective

    I love that his wiki page says he is an American college football homosexual. Lmao.

      To maintain continuity in the coaching staff, Jeff decided on a multi-month contract for John L. after reading this entry in the wiki:

      “Smith has earned a reputation for his adventurous attitude and actions,”

    Wow. Get it together, Arkansas.


  6. Does Arkansas not realize they could’ve just promoted from within for an interim coach? God at least them you might have a better shot of catching lightening in a bottle or something.

    reminds me of this guy

    Wiki now reporting… “Received award for Worst Interim Coach 2012.” and “He then joined Dennis Erickson as fluffer and assistant head coach for seven seasons at three schools::” – This is fun !

    Wait – didn’t Petrino replace Smith at Louisville? If so, well played Arkansas.

    No discussion of John l. Smith is complete without revisiting this rant;

    It tells me how desperate Arkansas is to salvage this season. With their best team on paper in recent memory, they’re sacrificing a stable multi-year plan and throwing all their chips in the pot for 2012.

    Arkansas: the gift that keeps on giving.

    Ah, the “let’s see how Gus does for a year at Ark State” hire.

    Watching these programs implode one after the other does make you appreciate the fact that this will never be Georgia with Richt around. More and more, this feels like The Year.
