01:52 PM ET 10.30 | Look through any college football message board, and you'll find at least one thread calling for Jon Gruden to pay a visit. He's the first name mentioned in any high-profile coaching search, but one Arkansas fan wants to stop for a moment and figure out why. He's had no significant success at the college level and has been out of coaching for a long time. What's the big deal?

I agree.... not a knock on Arky, but with his ego I think he would only take a job like TX etc....

John Gruden makes no damn sense what so ever when he speaks.... except when he says San Francisco reminds him of ALABAMA!!!

There's very little chance that Gruden goes to any college as HC. But, there is a slight chance. But, don't get your hopes up.

I am proud of you :)...Have fun... Keep him from the drunktards on either side...Should be an awesome environment...

Can't wait....he's so geeked been getting in trouble at school for talking about it and not sitting still since I told him yesterday morning. Oldest girl is PIZZED she's not going...can't understand why I just can't get another ticket.

As for my boy, he's been w/ me for Arky vs gump & LUS, and games as Zero U and Nebraska...he's used to drunktards, he's even got a few relatives that live up to that down there

I cannot see him taking the Arky coaching position. Look more to get Frank Solich from Ohio University.

Haha....i would be 2 as a 12yo... would be braggin my **** off....Awww.... nothing you can do about that... she should understand

When I was in 8th grade my stepdad scored tickets for him and I to go to game 5 of the 91 world series braves vs twins (worst to first year). I remember my teachers couldn't get me to shut up one of which actually acted totally jealous and was upset that I was leaving early that day to make the drive to ATL. I was probably obnoxious about it though. I still thank him for taking me and not my Mom....who still holds that over me like I owe her.....lol (I do!)

Vols fans are convinced gruden is done deal for next year.....lol

It's really simple.

Gruden is knocking down $5,000,000+ sitting around talking football. Why the hell would he want to walk into a dumpster fire like Tennessee or Arkansas for $3.5-$4 mill?

I'm betting a lot less hours and a lot less stress, too, being a commentator.

Oh, and Erin Andrews saw a picture ripped fromthe weather catastrophe movie The Day After Tomorrow, showing waves covering the Statue of Lberty and thought they were actual pictures from this hurricane.
