Grobe Has Change of Heart, Will Stay

Arkansas is a dream job, but not if you're at a football factory like Wake Forest. Jim Grobe has backed out of the Arkansas job, becoming the second candidate in three days to do so.

If you have experience coaching any level of football — Pop Warner on up — you're urged to give the Arkansas search firm a call. The number is 867-5309, or something like that.

It was widely reported that Grobe had taken the job, but according to the Springdale Morning News, he had a change of heart after talking with his team during an emotional meeting. And as it turns out, an expensive meeting. He left an extra $1.1 million a year behind (who couldn't use that?), but you have to admire Grobe for having the guts to follow his heart.

It is not about the money. Someone send this to Les Miles, please. Les: You can't be in two places at once. You made the wrong decision. Don't worry, your place in Michigan football history is secure. Bo would say "LSU = Les screwed up."
