    Now Arkie has stopped paying Bielema the remaining $7mil he was owed per his contract. Interesting angle they’re basing their decision on, not seeking a comparable job. This probably won’t end well for Arkie. I bet it does change the language in all future coaching contracts though. They will be very specific in not allowing said coach if fired to accept extremely low paying asst gigs to circumvent the buyout clause.

    Decision to stop Bret Bielema buyout payments could save Arkansas millions

    They mention Butch and his $35k job at Bama in the article. Nothing about washing cars though..

    I don't feel sorry for Ar-Kansas. They have some fans that are still jealous of UF's success, especially with the big 3 sports. Some of them are still mad about the 2008 (or 2009) season when Tim and the gators struggled mightily to beat Ar-Kansas. They thought they were robbed just like the cocks fans thought they were robbed last week. They were mad that the gators won the title in baseball before they did. Constantly berating the gators for its baseball fans support (or lack off). And seemingly put out great teams year after year even without fans support. UF even passed them in basketball. They are no longer thought of as a power in SEC basketball. Lastly, UF passed them in win totals in football last year. Sorry for the long off topic comment.
