Two interesting quotes from a radio interview on Nashville's WGFX:
“It was very, very difficult. It's always been a way of life for me, not necessarily a job. I grew up the son of a coach and it was just something you did every year, every fall. It was difficult, and then to watch [Arkansas] struggle and not play the way they played before, I felt a lot of responsibility for that.”
Here's the one that will cause some discussion:
"[I]t's unbelievable the facilities we have at WKU. The weight room, training room and locker room are way off the charts, way better than what we had at Arkansas."
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
There's a joke to be made in there somewhere.
ouch...WKU better than Arky? That'll rub some feathers...

My fiance is a grad student at Western. The facilities are very nice, and they continue to improve them. A lot of ongoing construction throughout campus.
For a mid major school it is very nice. If BP hangs around for a few years they could be very good.
I think I just spotted another BOLism.
U did! Ruffle some feathers.
and yes..."rub some feathers the wrong way" ;)
Guess that rules out Arkansas State for any future considerations.
I don't know much about Arkansas facilities, but I have family in bowling green. Let me tell you, it is ridiculous the amount of money WKU has put into their athletic facilities recently. Football stadium renovation was awesome
No way facilities @ WKU better than Arkansas.
I haven't seen the WKU facilities, but overall Arky has great facilities--especially Bud Walton Arena and Baum Stadium. Coach Broyles offered to show me around the football complex a few years ago but didn't have time--wish I had taken him up on it now.
