The last time we checked in on Arkansas’ hiring of Dan Enos, about a month ago, the mood in Fayetteville was at best a little tense, at worst calling for the new offensive coordinator’s resignation after a 2-3 start.

Five weeks is not a fair amount to judge a new OC and thankfully cooler heads prevailed, because the hiring looks better and better each week.

Enos, a former quarterback at Michigan State and head coach at Central Michigan, has helped the Razorbacks find their offensive groove.

In Arkansas’ first six games, including a competitive matchup against No. 2 Alabama, Arkansas averaged fewer than 24 points a game on its way to a lackluster 2-4 record.

Just three games later, it sits fourth in the SEC at 34.8 points per game and second in total yards per game behind only Mississippi behind a strong surge from Brandon Allen.

After two SEC OT victories and a blowout win over UT Martin, the next two weeks against No. 9 LSU and No. 17 Mississippi State will show if the Razorbacks’ three-game win streak was more a fluke or a sign of what’s to come with Enos calling the shots.

If Arkansas can win two of three against ranked SEC opponents (Ole Miss was ranked No. 17 last week) fans should look at 2015 as the potential start to something great.

The problem is timing as both senior Allen (2,476 yards, 21 TDs, 5 INTs) and junior RB Alex Collins (1,068 yards, 12 TDs) likely will be off to the NFL.

Allen has to leave and Collins is projected to be a third-round pick by

This was Arkansas’ year to strike and they may have used the first six weeks of it adjusting to a new system. Not the best tagline for the everyday Arkansas football fan.

With a greater expectation to succeed immediately than most offensive coordinators, Enos’ unit better keep scoring (more than 56 points per game in past three games), otherwise an already disappointed Arkansas fanbase could get ugly.
