It's not that I don't think Noland can't win the job, I think it's more along the lines of his arm might be too tired. Now, he is also at a disadvantage because he's playing baseball right now, so he's missing practice time which is invaluable AND he's missing time learning the the playbook. So, it's possible for him to win the starting job, but he has major obstacles to overcome.
Actually, if you watch the defense, it wasn't their fault aside from a couple of games. The defense kept the Hogs in the game for most of losses. The offense's inability to make first downs caused the defense to get worn out. It's easy to be outscored like that when the offense gets single digit first downs and the defense doesn't get a break. They have issues on defense, but the "REAL" work as you called it needs to happen on offense so the defense can rest.
JUCO safety set to become first female skill position player to play college football on scholarship
Right. It takes a lot of hard work and determination to earn a scholarship to play ball, regardless of gender. It's even more impressive that she did it in a male dominated sport.
Umm Adam, I'm looking for some clarification in your article. You said, "According to head coach Chad Morris, Boyd will not be able to practice this spring, though a reason wasn’t given." I say this because 5 days ago, Michael Wayne Bratton wrote "During a recent media availability with the program’s assistant coaches, the team’s running backs coach Jeff Traylor noted running back Rakeem Boyd won’t return from his offseason shoulder surgery for “a couple of months” meaning the Razorbacks will be thin at tailback this spring." in his article "Pair of Razorbacks switching positions for Arkansas this spring". I'm wondering if Boyd has some different reason for not practicing than what Michael wrote in his article. If you could clarify this, that'd be great.
Londonhawg, at no point, in your rambling incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.
Chad Morris explains decision to strip Arkansas program of all entitlement: ‘We have got to earn it’
Wolfman, at no point, in your rambling incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. Have you already forgotten how bad our season was? We went 2-10 without a win in the conference and almost without a win in the FBS. Morris stripped the football program of their workout gear because he believes they don't deserve the right to wear it. This has nothing to do with anything you said in your comment. They have to earn the right to be called a Razorback again, plain and simple.
Following news of Missouri’s postseason ban, college football Twitter speculates on future of Kelly Bryant
Kelley Bryant isn't going anywhere. He didn't go to Mizzou to go to the post-season. He went because he believes it gives him the best opportunity to work on his mechanics to be a better passer so he will be a better prospect for the draft. Mizzou shouldn't worry, he's not going anywhere.
I was going to say the same thing.
If Clemson's success is what we have to look forward, then let's build it. It took Dabo 6 years to win a NC and he started out with a team that had a pre-season #9 ranking and fell to 6-6 a couple of years later. So, take your time coach.
Completely agree with you here london. We really need to shore up that O-Line too. It's gonna be a long year, but I think it will pay off in Year 3. Maybe we'll sneak a few of extra wins in this season.
Actually, we already have the room for the 29 that CCM wants to sign. CCM mentioned earlier this year that he needed 24 to transfer in order to make the room needed. With this transfer, we've hit the mark he wanted.
Makes it hard to get ahead in this conference when you're Top 20 in the nation and not even top half of your conference. We're not even in the top half of the West with Bama, LSU, Auburn, Miss State and TAMU being ahead of the Hogs in recruiting. Ole Miss is the West team behind Arky with UK, Mizzou, and Vandy behind Ole Miss.
WATCH: Maria Taylor has the perfect response to speculation that Green Bay could lure Nick Saban away from Alabama
Don't forget, it's warmer in Bama too.
Right. Meyer: Ok, in today's class, this is how you get away with lying through your ass.
I was going to say the same thing. It's just click-bait. Print this word or that word and people will click it. Just like how they have an article every week with the word "savagely" in it.
-10 wind chill and snow. I lived up there in 7 years. It snowed on Halloween every year. December is worse. It's -3F and a -25 wind chill.
Well, that puts a damper on our depth our LB.
I was wondering that myself. Maybe he saw something (writing on the wall) with the shift in the coaching staff and he figured he'd hop on the life boat before the ship started sinking.
Arkansas and Texas A&M play annually in Jerry's World and Arkansas gave up another "Home" game by playing in Little Rock this past year. Florida and UGA aren't the only 2 who play a SEC away from their home stadium.
I was actually surprised that so many sports writers and analysts actually thought Kelly Bryant would choose Arkansas. Did I want him to? Sure, but KB mentioned many times that he was looking for a school to help him finish developing as a passer (Mizzou) and could help him improve his draft stock (Mizzou could easily finish 2nd or 3rd in the EAST). Mizzou has the talented receiving corps that would help get KB noticed at the next level all while winning many games. Arkansas really only had the Morris connection. Our offensive line wasn't that good this year, our receiving corps will get an upgrade this off-season, but they are unproven, and I don't see Arkansas winning more than 5 games this year. We're not even going to discuss the dumpster fire that is Auburn with a coach that has no powers and is pretty much on his way out. Mizzou made the most sense and did from the beginning.
You know, sometimes I wonder if you even know anything about football. It's fans like you who tear down the program and make recruits not want to come to Arkansas. Then you go on these rants that you don't like this or that and bad mouth the team. Why don't you just shut up? Try being a supportive fan. Is CCM our coach of the future? I don't know, but I'm giving him the chance he deserves. If you can do so much better, then apply of the job. Until you prove that you're a better coach than CCM, shut your pie hole and support these young men.
Love the Henry family. Classy folks.
WTF is wrong with people? Respect the guy's decision. He needed to go somewhere that would help him improve his draft stock. The dumpster fires of Auburn and Arkansas would not do that him. I'm really glad that he didn't come Arkansas with some of the stuff our fans have said to him. I apologize on behalf of Pig Land.
Makes sense. They are bowl eligible, so if not chosen, then let them come up with a game of their own.
Morris is cleaning house. I'm sure he offered them a position change or something that would allow them to continue with the team in a different role, but it was no secret that Morris needed a bunch of players to transfer in order to bring in the recruits he has for this year. After the last game of the season, Morris said he would need at least 4 more to transfer to make room for the new recruits. He got those 4 with Kelley leaving now. We only had 25 scholarships and Morris is recruiting 29, so someone has to go.
I agree. I thought he'd make a TE and then you could have a TE throwback pass to the QB or something like that.
Yup, redshirted last year and didn't played a down this year. New coaching staff probably had a long sit down with him and this is what's best for him.
We just need LSU to step up and not pull an Auburn against UCF this bowl season.
