Boom, motherfucker! The creeping rumor is Will Muschamp, the defensive coordinator at Auburn, acolyte of Nick Saban, and occasional affront to FCC broadcasting standards, will be the next football coach at Arkansas. This is still in the realm of creeping rumor, of course, but it's an odd hire for one reason: having just gotten rid of a spastic, yeah-rah offensive guy, Arkansas will have gone out and grabbed a spastic, yeah-rah defensive guy.

Admittedly, this is a very, very good yeah-rah guy, and it seems less of a conscious decision to hire one guy in particular than an commitment to hiring the person they felt to be the best coach out there after Jim Grobe turned them down.

Again, purely speculative, but here in the blogosphere that flies like Kevin Everett out of a hospital.
