There has been a lot of commotion with Arkansas football Coach John Smith. Smith has filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy in September, owing just over $25 million.

Smith, who took over as interim coach for Bobby Petrino, listed just $300 in cash on hand and $500 in his checking account in a court filing.

Smith has said the cause of all this chaos was when his real estate investments went bad. The start of the financial down fall started when he was head coach at Louisville from 1998 to 2002.

Signing a contract for $850,000 for ten months the expectations are very high for new Coach Smith.
