Baylor got a commit from his teammate/QB Wesley Harris today.
Difficult yes, impossible no. I think our performance and Baylor without RGIII may put some different ideas in his head if our offense can show some improved passing.
I would normally write this off as a typical 2 star Baylor recruit but with the way they have been recruiting, this offer has the looks of having more to do with keeping Rhodes than it does taking Harris based on his talents.

Pray that Briles goes to Arkie
Why? I think he's good for the conference.
This. I hate the creep for 08 but he is a good coach an we need our conference to be tough and competitive.
Also, I'm not sure Rhoads is flippable. From what I've read he really likes Baylor/Waco.
That's not who Arkie wants
And no Texas fan will like the answer to who it is
Briles would be a much better choice than Diaz.
and unless the arky fans I talked to are wrong, which is always possible, Arky brass prefer an offensive minded coach with some HC experience rather than a defensive one with none. Of course, lights out performance by the defense this year and that could change.

Why would I have a problem with Arkansas hiring Kirby Smart or Charlie Strong?
Butch Davis, Charlie Strong, & Gus Malzahn would be ahead of Diaz on the Arkie short list
If I remember correctly, back in the 80's, Baylor had a recruiting advantage because they could offer recruits a monthly stipend for living expenses because they didn't have on-campus dormitories. Anybody know if this is still true?
I think Wesley Harris projects better as a DB. That said, BU has two project QBs in he and Chris Johnson so you figure one will develop.
Arkansas' top 4 are Gus Malzahn, Butch Davis, Garrick McGee, and Skip Holtz. They want a guy with connections to the state (all 4 do), and HC experience (all 4 do). Of those guys, 3 of them are offensive-minded coaches and Butch Davis is the other.
Davis is already openly campaigning for the spot, and his relationship with Jerry Jones won't hurt his chances.
Safe to say that neither Diaz nor Briles will be on any short list.
Thats pretty much what I was told although Butch has issues because of his past association with schools on double secret probation.
This is all true but briles is just as far up the list as Butch Davis is
Not sure if you are saying Briles is in consideration or Butch has about the same shot as Briles does. My understanding is Butch wants the job and is lobbying but is not numero uno on the list and is a longshot. Briles runs the type of offense that Arkansas likes though.
I think they take Malzahn - not Diaz.
I'm agreeing with you basically but adding that, realistically, Davis has no greater chance landing the job than briles does
I have trouble believing Briles shot down Aggy! If so that is funny!
I can't imagine Arkansas going for a coach whose former program is getting hammered with sanctions after going through the Petrino debacle. Then again, they are Arkansas.
He was at the camp Friday and did really well as a corner. The fact he ran a 10.87FAT doens't hurt and legit 6'1.
Manny isn't on Arkie's radar at the moment. They're looking at guys with ties to the program and/or state and has NFL experience (read into that what you will) first and foremost, neither of which Manny has. This from a higher up in the Arkie AD.
The team to look out for is Tennessee. Assuming Dooley shits himself again, theyre going to throw the book at Petrino, but there's some thought that he may take an extended hiatus to get his family affairs in order, in which case Manny would be a short list of candidates.
