    I think I saw this. It was a comparison if we had hired Beard when he was hired at Tech. It’s comparing the two time frames.

    We’ve made an offer. We’ll see what happens when they get eliminated from the tourney

    Hearing they don’t want to get into a bidding war if we tried to take him.

    That’s kinda surprising to me since that asshole Fertitta (their version of T. Boone) decided to bankroll Holgorsen’s football contract - not sure why he wouldn’t do it for Sampson either unless he doesn’t like the guy.

    I would be absolutely shocked if fertitta was outbid by Arkansas.

    They play their home games at a newly renovated on campus stadium called the fertitta center and were selling out games this season. He’s not going to let them be shitty at basketball after donating $20 million for the renovation and naming rights

    One thing I do like about this is that he fired Anderson after less than one year on the job. Shows he’s not afraid to make changes

    Chad isn’t his guy, so when he goes 2-22 in the SEC after three years he will also be shitcanned

    Richard did an article on the topic today actually. Thanks for bringing this up THF!

    http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2019/mar/27/qb-target-proudly-shows-arkansas-graphic/

    Highly regarded quarterback Mike Wright proudly showed off the graphic Arkansas coach Chad Morris sent him on Tuesday that honored him for being named the Atlanta The Opening Regional MVP.

    Wright (6-4, 180, 4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash) of Atlanta's Woodward Academy, was named the quarterback MVP after Sunday’s competition.

    “I think Arkansas makes the best edits,” Wright said, “or at least from the schools who send me stuff.”

    He explained why Arkansas’ graphics stand out.

    “Well, one thing, all the graphics are sent by Coach Morris himself, so that's special,” Wright said. “The creativity is awesome, too. There is never your typical player with your name on the back of the jersey. It's you running out the tunnel or busting through a pinata.”

    He has a best of 11.03 seconds in the 100 meters and 21.09 seconds in the 200 meters this spring.

    Wright has scholarship offers from schools such as Arkansas, Ole Miss, Minnesota, Louisville, Kentucky, Illinois and others. He also likes how the Razorbacks fan base interacts with him on social media.

    “Another thing is the fans love it also and it's always cool to see fans behind recruits because they actually play a huge role in recruitment,” Wright said. “They have impacted my view of Arkansas tremendously.”

    He completed 106 of 161 passes for 1,521 yards, 18 touchdowns and 5 interceptions along with 64 rushes for 533 yards and 9 touchdowns as a junior. He connected on 120 of 185 passes for 1,707 yards, 13 touchdowns while throwing only 2 interceptions and rushed 70 times for 309 yards and 9 touchdowns as a sophomore.

    Wright plans to visit Fayetteville before summer.

    “It may be an official. Arkansas is one of my top choices,” Wright said.

    He likes the way coach Morris and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Joe Craddock's offense operates.

    “As far as the relationship, it is awesome,” Wright said. “I talk to both almost every week. Sometimes we all get on FaceTime and talk about anything.”

    It would not be a surprise.

    Any reports that he was hired or that there as an agreement in place were, as always, premature.

    Dana Altman was literally inside Bud Walton being sworn-in before turning around and going home.

    Yurachek is running this show solo. We’ve been communicating with Yurachek through a 3rd party... but apparently we’re shooting for something else. Sounds like we’re putting feelers out with Greg Marshall.

    Steve Alford inquired with Arkansas about the job, not the other way around. Daniel Ocean if we settle for your boy I’m banning you

    When we have a coaching search, everyone in the state has a fucking great source. I'll believe it when I see him on the sidelines next year. I would say after the press conference, but there's the Altman thing.

    State of the Hogs: Beck knows what to expect from Musselman
    By: Clay Henry

    Former Arkansas guard Corey Beck waves to the crowd after being honored Saturday, March 9, 2019, during the first half against Alabama in Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.
    FAYETTEVILLE — Corey Beck doesn’t pull punches.

    So it was no surprise when he offered an immediate prediction for the returnees on the Arkansas basketball team hoping to play for new coach Eric Musselman.

    “These baby (expletive deleted) kids won’t play with Coach E,” Beck said Monday morning.

    “He don’t play that crap. What we needed, is what we got, a tough coach with a mean spirit.”
    ADVERTISING
    That’s on the court demeanor, Beck said, not off the court.

    “Don’t mistake me, he’s a real good guy,” Beck said. “But he’s like Nolan (Richardson), as soon as he steps on the court, Coach E’s demeanor changes. And, he’s really tough, like Nolan.”

    Beck told Musselman the program won't be easy to fix.

    "I told him part of it would be that he needs to get to Memphis for some tough kids," Beck said. "Now, (Memphis coach) Penny Hardaway is getting the good ones there, but there are a lot over there. I keep hearing from Dwight Stewart and so many others that there are plenty of good ones there now."

    Beck was delighted to get a phone call from Musselman late Sunday night after the new Arkansas coach had visited with his players. They were old friends from many battles in the Continental Basketball Association.

    Musselman phoned Beck sometime after midnight. Asked if that was an odd time to reach out, Musselman said, “You’ll find out I do a lot of odd things. I think it was around 1:15 a.m. when we finished talking.”

    It followed some text exchanges with other former Razorbacks, including Corliss Williamson and Patrick Beverley.

    “Corey was a guy that I had a lot of respect for as a player,” Musselman said of their CBA days. “He was a incredibly fierce competitor.”

    That’s Beck, the inspirational captain of the teams that went to back-to-back title games in 1994 and 1995, and won the school’s only national title. Beck provided a similar scouting on their new coach.

    Now the owner of Corey Beck Commercial and Residential Painting in Northwest Arkansas, there couldn’t be anyone better to provide the scouting report. I consider Beck a good friend and a straight shooter.

    “I was at Sioux City and Coach E was at West Palm Beach with the Beachdogs,” Beck said. “I think it was like three or four years and our teams were always the two at the top, playing at the end.

    “I know him real good. I can tell you he coaches the game like he’s playing it, real intense. He’s like a playing coach.”

    Beck laughs about those rivalry games with the Beachdogs. He said it wasn’t anything that ever came into his mind.

    “First, I tried out with an NBA team, then next thing I ended up in Sioux City,” he said of his time with the Sky Force. “I can tell you that no way I knew where that was until I got there.”

    The CBA was a mental and physical test with far more games in a season than Beck played in college. There was little time for any nightlife.

    “And, if you did do some of that, I learned you didn’t do it before you played Coach E’s teams,” Beck said. “You better be resting the night before and ready to play. That team he had always worked so hard.

    “I’m telling you, I would love to play for him. He is my kind of coach.”

    Beck said Musselman is the right coach at the right time.

    “We’ve had some good coaches (since Richardson),” Beck said. “But it’s a tough job to follow him.

    “I liked Stan Heath, a great recruiter, but maybe not (the coach) that you need. Then, you had John Pelphrey. I think he did bring in a few good ones, but never had that backbone player you needed.

    “I am a huge Mike Anderson fan. He had the right DNA for the program, but wasn’t fortunate to get the right kids.”

    Beck points to toughness as the central issue, something that he thinks Musselman will fix.

    “What you know about Coach E, he’s been in the game all over the basketball world, from the NBA, to the CBA, the D League and now college,” Beck said. “And, he knows it takes toughness.

    “I played his teams and they were tough, tough, tough. They were amazing teams.

    “He’s got the right coaching strategy. You saw him come out of timeouts with great sets. He always has well-coached teams.”

    That’s the same report from the same general time frame from another friend, former radio host Bo Mattingly. It was Bo who told me Sunday to phone Beck.

    “I saw Corey play against the Beachdogs (and Musselman),” Mattingly said. “Corey had some amazing games.”

    Mattingly worked at a radio station that handled Beachdog games and eventually did the public address at the games.

    “I think I was 20 or 21,” Mattingly said. “I did a lot of things for the radio station and their relationship with the CBA team got me involved.”

    There was a night that the regular radio play-by-play voice was gone so Mattingly handled the broadcast solo.

    “Their best player was Shelton Jones and for some reason Eric took him out early in the game - no foul trouble, no apparent reason - and I commented that it was a weird substitution,” Mattingly said. “I didn’t think much about it.”

    The next day there was a meeting to go over that, with Musselman in the locker room.

    “I’d heard about people being called to the locker room to meet with him,” Mattingly said. “They were usually not much fun.”

    This one wasn’t so bad, but there was a sharp point.

    “I came in and the first thing he said, ‘Hey, do you want to coach the team?’" Mattingly said. "And, then, he said he wondered why I was questioning his decision to sub out Shelton Jones?”

    It was quickly explained that there was always a plan behind everything.

    “That was my first introduction to the coaching world,” Mattingly said. “You learn, sometimes there are things that don’t make sense, but there is usually a plan.”

    Mattingly said Musselman’s plans were in great detail.

    “He had his hand in everything to do with the franchise, A through Z,” Mattingly said. “And, yes, there was a fiery side to him. I think he is the coach who invented stomping on the floor to get the attention of the players.

    “The character trait that was obvious to me was that everyone knew who was in charge. He was the leader and ran the entire organization. If there was something he didn’t like in the arena, it was changed.

    “The other thing that stood out, I knew he was good. I followed him through his stops and always saw success.

    “The head coach made the difference in the CBA. It makes a difference everywhere. He’s always had that fiery intense motivation. You felt it and everyone else did.

    “He had important qualities that demanded hard work and his players competed hard.”
