Not sure how likely this is to happen. They’re offering about 2 million more per year over what he’s currently getting though I can’t imagine it would be solely an issue of money.  Will LSU renegotiate to keep him? Arky is a good job, but is it worth giving up a cushy spot like he has at LSU for more scratch?

I think that is a weird move…they need to get a texas dude as texas recruiting is their lifeblood. Arkansas has to recruit west to survive. I would think that Wal-Mart/Tyson chicken money can buy alot though…

I can’t see this happening.

It wouldn’t completely surprise me if this were to happen. For as well as Miles has done in Baton Rouge, I think he takes an excessive amount of criticism. I could see a scenario where he wanted to get out of LSU simply to go to a program that would be more appreciative of his services.
