I "feel" like I have fufilled all my obligations when it comes to my bills. I wonder if I can just walk awya from them and not have to pay? If you use Bo, boo hoo I'm a baby, Mattingly's logic.

So, he's a person who uses his faith to get out of contracts. Way to go Dwayne or however you spell your real name. You are a real piece of work.

The concept is built. Their product is strong. Now the question is can the powers in charge replace him with the right person.

Anybody think it is strange that he is giving up a sports director position at a television station. Because of KNWA and KARK teaming up to do the Razorback Nation he was coming into a lot of peoples homes all over the state. I find it interesting that he would give all that up just to do a sports talk show that is only heard in Northwest Arkansas. Does anybody not get it yet. He is more than likely going to be the new pregame, halftime, postgame, and scoreboard show host for ARSN on the Razorback games, but he probably wouldn't be able to do it if he was working for KNWA/KARK. I'll take it a step farther, a year from now he will be working for KATV doing the Razorback reports and possibly doing a similar version of the Pig Trail on Sunday nights.

It should be against the law to play music on any AM radio station.

Sounds like he'd fit right in.

If he will be happy, I say more power to him. I hope the show is a success.

Who Cares. The real question is will he grow any taller? Why don't he go to Notre Dame and be their mascot? Bo "mommy will I grow any taller" Mattingly can pack his ego in a duffle bag and head off to live with "the little people".

More like pack the ego in an 18 wheeler and move on.

Will be interesting to see how his replacement will be. It's a high profile spot.

Maybe they will hire Craig Oneal for the job. Now there's a sports man.

That's funny. Craig knowledge of sports is limited to laughing at himself.

Yeah, and they need to fill Craig's spot with Mark E.!!!

Those words... "high profile"... I don't think they mean what you think they mean.

I listened for about five minutes and had to turn it off. It seems that Bo really hasn't changed. He came off like a jerk. The old Bo is back.

It is high profile. It cracks me up that Nexstar came up with the idea and having multiple stations in the state is what got it done but that anchor whoever it is reaches more of the state than any other anchor in Arkansas. The product has been given the resources now lets see if they use their heads and put the right person in the chair.

...either a) Ruscin, or b) the 'pooer who's the GM for the Fox station. At least that'll give him a real job to do.

Marty's way too good a sports guy to work at KNWA.

As for actual options... they'll either give AP a bump (he's already doing a KNWA clone sports report on FOX) or try and find some former Razorback. Probably the former.

Either of those options will make the person better than anyone else in the state.

My friend said KNWA called Jimmy Dykes about the job. Are they desperate or what? That is way below his level

How is that? He gets a ticket home, a fat check, a lot less travel and is the biggest fish in the smallest pond (ARKANSAS). Coaches do that all the time. Hell, TV anchors even do it.

now, they're suing bo. that's funny. i hope they get everything he owns, should fit in a small bag, unless they get the ego, then pull up the trailer

5:18 poster is right. This is one of if not the highest recognized on air positions in Arkansas. Maybe not the best with Bo in the seat but has the the chance to be the most recognized anchor in the state. It covers both markets. That's one of the reason that I think Inman didn't get the Hog job. He wasn't known in Fayetteville.

There are no "big fish" anchors in Arkansas.

How many DUI's do you need to have in Arkansas before someone (manager) realizes that your credibility is shot?

Are DUI arrests good for your resume?

Just curious.
