pigprison.jpgFor reasons beyond my understanding, it appears that the University of Arkansas has offered Houston Nutt a contract extension through 2012. Oboy. Six more years of astonishing mediocrity.

ESPN.com reports that Nutt earns a base salary of $329,644 and has a total compensation package of $1.05 million annually — not including $412,000 per year in tax-deferred annuities that will be paid at a later date.

Nutt is just barely 60% in his nine seasons at Arkansas, 67-43. I like Houston as a person, but I think he needs to move on to other pastures so that Fayetteville can pursue excellence. Unfortunately, Arkansans just seem content to settle.

On this day...
