One program’s discarded coach could be another’s desirable hire. Such is the case with Arkansas and Steve Alford.Stadium’s Jeff Goodman reported on Tuesday that Alford is a candidate for the Arkansas Razorbacks basketball job. Arkansas is looking for a new coach after firing Mike Anderson, who was 169-102 over eight seasons on the job. Anderson led the Hogs to three NCAA Tournament appearances, but after an 18-16 season, he was let go.Alford might be a slight upgrade but probably would not be much better. He went 124-63 at UCLA and was fired after beginning the season 7-6.Though they haven’t made much noise this century, Arkansas has a strong basketball tradition. They were highly successful during a 20-year period from around 1975-1995 under Eddie Sutton and then Nolan Richardson. They reached back-to-back championship games under Richardson, winning one national title. Winning at a high level at Arkansas can be achieved. … [Read more...] about Steve Alford reportedly a candidate for Arkansas job

Oregon? Track stars leaving neon green streaks in the sky. Utah? Grinders and pluggers on both sides of the line. Stanford sells itself as Wisconsin West, a template built around power, smarts, and air-tight fundamentals; Washington State is Texas Tech North. Colorado? Oh, doctor. Speed? Strength? Passing? Toughness? The option? A framed picture of a bison with snow on its nose? Dysfunction? “I’m not sure what the ‘brand’ is for Colorado,” ESPN college football analyst Rod Gilmore said with a chuckle. “Other programs, you can identify (that). And I’m not sure Colorado has found their brand yet.” Welcome to Job 1A, the experts say, for the football coach that’s picking up Mike MacIntyre’s baton: Establish an identity. Stand for something. Anything. The Cradle of Quarterbacks. The Chautauqua Curtain. The Flatirons Flyers. Whatever. “(The Cardinal) have a brand and a philosophy they’ve been following since (Jim … [Read more...] about Colorado football job isn’t a “coach-killer” anymore. But how good of a gig is it?
Mike Bobo’s job is safe. More accurately: Mike Bobo’s job was never in jeopardy. One miracle comeback against Arkansas saved Colorado State (3-9) from its worst finish in 30 years and the best athletic director Joe Parker could do was shrug and say “meh.” At 11:25 a.m. Monday, he basically did just that by sending an email to fans informing them that CSU’s head football coach isn’t going anywhere. No mention of the unreasonable contract he offered Bobo last December. No mention of the $8.5 million required to part ways with his coach. Just seven paragraphs saying this season was disappointment and, in more subtle language, ask that you buy 2019 season tickets. Which is perfectly fine. One losing season in four years shouldn’t cost Bobo his job. And if you’re Parker, what else are you supposed to do? Come out and say “I’m sorry I offered Bobo a bad deal we can’t afford to get out of?” Parker’s role in the … [Read more...] about Stephens: Devoted or Stubborn?
