Arkansas and Auburn joined Kentucky today at the new head coach festival, held annually at Pittsburgh (Arkansas State has put in a bid to host as well). Bret Bielema of Wisconsin and "we don't want to be like the SEC -- in any way, shape, or form" fame agreed to take over at Arkansas and Auburn brought Gus Malzahn back to Lee County after a one-year stint at Arkansas State, where he washed away all traces of Gene Chizik on his person.
That leaves Tennessee as the only SEC school without a head coach, but I'm sure they'll figure something out. Besides, Dave Wannstedt is available AND he has a working telephone.
But what about the hires Arkansas and Auburn made? Obviously, we won't really know anything until we're into the 2013 season, but that's not what this is about. We're here to make sweeping statements based only on things from the past because that is way more fun than waiting.
And to make this much easier on me, we'll lean on bulleted lists in pro/con format ...
