Arkansas Razorbacks Internet Chatter: June 10 - Jerry Jones, Derek Fisher, More

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

News, notes, and interesting reads from around these here interwebs.

Jerry Jones says Bielema is the "answer" at Arkansas – One of the more recognizable and most notable Arkansas alums spoke highly of the Razorbacks' second-year head coach, and was quoted saying he believes Bret Bielema to be the answer for Arkansas' football program right now. After the Petrino debacle and John L. Smith's one season as Head Hog, Bielema had a lot of pressure put on him in year one, and as we know, didn't go so well. But a very powerful figure has place his confidence in Bielema. Jones' word actually means more to me now that he did the right thing and passed on Jonny Manziel in the NFL Draft. HERES A VOTE OF CONFIDENCE FOR YA BERT!

Five SEC Players You'd Pay to See Again – Our friends over at And the Valley Shook (the LSU site) had a tremendous post idea and collected the opinions of contributors as to the five SEC football players they would pay to see play one last time. And wouldn't ya know it, our man Darren McFadden made the cut a couple in a couple of the lists. Run DMC scared the living hell out of LSU and the SEC in his day and he'd no doubt be on my list. I'd have to say I'd want to see DMAC, Johnny Manziel, Joe Adams (returning punts), Cam Newton, and Tyrann Mathieu. I can't put the obvious Bo and Herschel because I never saw them actually play :(. Who are your five SEC guys you pay to see again?

ESPN looks at Arkansas and the QB position – It's no surprise, and to be honest, it's getting a bit old; we know Arkansas isn't one of the stronger teams in the SEC at the quarterback position. But ESPN recently unveiled their QB unit rankings for the SEC and Arkansas isn't sitting pretty as you can imagine. But in the top 10 QBs in the league, ESPN has Brandon Allen in it. And obviously the unit rankings takes a hit, because after BA are two QBs with zero playing experience. Do you agree with the rankings? Think its too harsh or just right?

Derek Fisher to coach the NY Knicks – The 501s very own, Derek Fisher, is headed to the Big Apple to take over the vacant coaching position for the NY Knicks, according to reports. Fisher, who played at UALR, has more postseason experience himself that the whole Knick team. I didn't even have to look that up. D-Fish has just around that long and it's probably true anyways. Fisher isn't one of my favorite players, but its always good to see an Arkansas boy make it big.
