All that spending like drunken sailors on coaching salaries this past offseason – is it too soon to start questioning the judgment of people like Jeff Long and Jay Jacobs?
I’d say no, simply because even if it’s not too late to turn seasons around at Arkansas and Auburn, their main goal of competing for a title in the West is already dead and gone.
At this point, their focus has to be on not being that team, the last place program with the four million-dollar head coach.
And if you’re the lucky athletic director who winds up in that boat, where do you go from there? Hope and pray it turns around quickly, or spend more of that SEC TV money on a buyout and new blood?
