    JS is done as the Arkansas coach.

I can't think of a single compelling reason for why Arkansas would extend JS into a permanent HC.

    and to be fair, Alabama had a coach like JLS also. This pretty much made it clear after this game that Kines would never be the full time head coach at Alabama.

    Houston Nutt also had a habit of acting crazy during interviews after terrible loses.

    I think he could have survived this season up until that "smile" debacle.

    Saban wasn't brought in as an interim coach and didn't inherit a team in the top 10.

    Right but at the time no player on UAB or UL Monroe roster would have been given a scholarship to play at LSU or Alabama.

    Arkansas probably didnt deserve the #4 ranking to start the season.

    Seems JLS needs the money he is getting this year:

    No doubt, but Saban didn't start on shaky ground. John L. did. When UL-M's QB hit the end zone in OT in Fayetteville, the John L. Smith era at Arkansas effectively ended.

    JLS was doomed from the start,was just a temp.
    The fact that the Hogs have played so bad is the talent they have on both sides of the ball.Petrino did not believe in recruiting any semblance of defense,always tried to outscore you.That mindset may work elsewhere ,but not the defensive minded SEC.They in no way deserved their ranking to start the season.We will see how they respond to Syracuse Sat.with Wilson back under center.
    If they lose,then that program will be in a free fall and may take years to rebuild.

    ROLL TIDE ROLL!!

    Petrino's Arkansas team last year beat everyone they played other than LSU and Alabama (who were #1 and #2 in the nation) and won the Cotton Bowl. His Louisville teams went 41-9 and won an Orange Bowl. Petrino may be a jerk, but there aren't really any holes in how he built teams. His teams won, period.

    Blame that lose on the Auburn coaching staff. The OC is terrible. Gene probably did enough to get the monkeys off his back.

    LSU's defense is awesome. I'm not sure you're a football person.

    Truthfully, Auburn left at least 10 pts on the field with Coats' drop on the deep route and Frazier missing an open McCaleb running down the sideline.

    The game plan was fine. The offense is there. KF is just struggling to transition from a spread offense which he's always played to a pro set- one of the hardest transitions or a QB to make.
