If the ACC is so lame in football, why is an SEC power trying to steal one of the coaches (again)?

Rebuffed by Carolina's Butch Davis and Clemson's Tommy Bowden, Arkansas is now looking to land Wake Forest’s Jim Grobe as the new Razorback coach.

A University of Arkansas private fundraising arm approved a salary supplement Wednesday for Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, a strong indication that Grobe will replace Houston Nutt as the Razorbacks' coach. There was no word from the university, however, on whether Grobe would replace Nutt, who "quit " Nov. 26 and was hired almost immediately at Ole Miss.

(Arkansas's Chancellor John White suffered only minor burns when his pants caught on fire after expressing his support of Nutt just one day before Nutt "quit.")

The Morning News of Northwest Arkansas reported on its Web site Wednesday night that Grobe would likely be introduced Thursday as Arkansas' coach.
