Arkansas ended its rough 2018 in fitting fashion — with a shutout loss against Missouri. Behind 21 points in the second quarter, the Tigers defeated the Razorbacks, 38-0.

In coach Chad Morris’ first season, Arkansas finished 2-10 and winless in the SEC.

Morris had a lot to say after another embarrassing loss. Actually, he was downright defiant in his last postgame press conference of the year, saying his team is getting better.

“We’re moving in the right direction,” Morris said. “It may not seem like it right now, but we are.”

To open his press conference, Morris talked about how disappointing the season finale was, in particular, the second quarter where Arkansas gave up three touchdowns.

“First of all, their (the fans) passion, as of I’ve said many, many times this year, the passion our fan base has, the love for the ‘Hogs that they have inspires us, inspires me. I promise you, their passion level and my tireless work ethic, as well as our staff’s tireless work ethic, will match their passion level. With that together, locking arms (we’ll improve).

“As I said last year, regardless who the coach is, 4-8 is unacceptable, 2-10 is unacceptable. But with their passion level and our work ethic, our drivenness because of their passion, we’re going to get this program going. We’re moving in the right direction. It may not seem like that right now, but we are.”

“Well, you gotta sell who you are, and you gotta sell a vision. You gotta sell what’s coming. And that’s what we’ve been selling from the start. We started recruiting these young men, selling them on the opportunity to come in and contribute, contribute early and make an impact the day you step on campus. That does not change. That’s been our mission, and that’s been our message to these young men, and that won’t change. These guys will be able to come in and impact this program, and continue to establish what we’re trying to put forth, and it will happen the day they get on campus. We’re anticipating quite a few mid-years, so they’ll have an opportunity to come in, play and contribute quickly.”

Morris talks about how he knows what it will take to turn things around at Arkansas.

Morris also talked about quarterback Connor Noland’s performance on Saturday.
