There’s at least one Arkansas fan who is unhappy with the direction of the Arkansas athletics program. And they highlighted these problems in an advertisement in the state’s biggest newspaper.
An advertisement paid appearing in the sports section of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette laid out some of the shortcomings in the Jeff Long era. Long is Arkansas’ athletic director.
The advertisement also points out the less than stellar SEC records of football coach Bret Bielema and men’s basketball coach Mike Anderson.

The advertisement also encouraged fans to write to the Governor of Arkansas to express their opinion. The football team went 7-6 this season, but did go to a bowl game for the third consecutive season. The men’s basketball team is 15-4 and 4-3 in SEC play. The Razorbacks knocked off LSU on Saturday.
In addition to serving as athletic director, Long is also a member on the College Football Playoff committee.
