Arkansas Must Look Elsewhere – Grobe Stays at Wake

Everybody’s got the story:

Triad Business News

Jim Grobe is staying at Wake Forest. This is a NO BRAINER. The man is a Football Hero in the land of ACC Basketball. He’s getting a stadium rebuild. He’s got a good team. He’s at a good, smaller school. He is appreciated.

Sure Arkansas has money, big teams, bigger alumni and did I say bigger money. Coaches are chewed up and spit out. Better to stay with the family that loves you that the business that will fire you when you have a bad season.

    Don’t go telling ALL our secrets. Personally, I really didn’t think it was a big issue; but Andy pointed out that we were getting a LOT of Search traffic from folks from the Arkansas area – so feed the trolls.

    Interesting comment from an Arkansas Razorback message board by way of an greensborosports.com search in our stats department:

    Last night, the goober on 40\29 came on and said that we had a new coach and it was Jim Grobe. This morning, ESPN radio is laughing at us because he’s staying at Wake Forest. How can these goobs keep getting on TV and reporting “false” reports and keep their jobs? What the hell are we gonna do now? Hell I guess we could just hire Don Decker–U of A strength and conditioning coach. Somebody. Then we could at least get back on the ****** recruiting path!!!
