At the time, it seemed like a good idea.

Nothing like a good piece of snark – in this case asking a member of the University of Arkansas board of trustees who approved a $160 million stadium expansion because to do otherwise would be “a vote of no confidence in our chancellor, our president and our athletic director” why it’s such a good idea to give a blank check to the man who failed to supervise Bobby Petrino and hired John L. Smith as his replacement.

This is why you have nice things you probably don’t need.

    “….Goodson apparently fearing opposing it would offend them.”

    The writer has it all wrong. Board of Trustees probably don’t care what the University president and AD think of them, but they care a good deal about what their friends/neighbors/colleagues think of them. And how could they face them if they denied Arkansas this shiny new thing???

    As an unrelated aside…..Bert is the Rex Ryan of college football in sooooo many ways…..
