Rex Nelson started things off on Monday Oct 8, 2012 by saying that at the Little Rock Touchdown Club they like to have at least one speaker from Alabama every year. Two weeks ago we had John L. Smith who thought he was in Alabama, but today we do actually have someone who lives in Alabama.
This week’s guest was Paul Finebaum and Finebaum talked about potential coaches that Arkansas could hire for football. One comment that caught my attention was that Alabama’s current defensive coordinator Kirby Smart would be a great pick but he may be waiting for the Tennessee job to open up. The funny thing is that Finebaum said that Phillip Fulmer was considered for the Hog job this April but he would not have been interested because there were not enough donut shops in Arkansas.
