We just have to get him to stop talking next.
There is a reason why Houston Nutt does not coach anymore.
Mentally tough, prepared teams do not have these sorts of ups and downs at home. One the road is one things, but not at home. Physically, we can match up with everyone (maybe not depth-wise), but we looked mentally drained this evening.
Amen. It is good to hear a sensible fan talk. We had the same problem after Houston Nutt left, then after Petrino. Arkansas has now won 12 of its last 16 games (or something close), and you hear our fans thinking we can get a better coach then coach Beleima (not the case). The best thing a program can have is consistency in the SEC west and everyone once in a while, maybe the stars will allign (until Saban retires). Personally, I would rather have the kids we have at kids we have at Arkansas, doing well in Academics and playing beyond their talent level. Idiot fans are idiot fans. They don't remember how bad things can be and have been. I just hope we keep Enos another few years.
Damn it, Bobby P. I thought we would grow old together in NWA.
You're good-ole-boy rant is frivolous. You are judging without understanding the situation entirely. I feel like I just read a rant by some generic billy-bob on a message board.
It is ridiculous that this is a story on your site, SDS.
He may be right, but that man does not belong on television or radio #toastmasters
With Vegas and many articles I have read, I am wondering if I am not accounting for something with how favored Auburn is. This seems like a trendy pick. We are hitting our stride. However, Arkansas is who I follow more thoroughly than any other team, so I am biased, but C'MON.
Never-mind. Thought the Logo said TAMU. Sheesh.
We are hitting our prime. Hopefully, you guys don't beat us early on and fade into into November, like last year.
I have TAMU coworkers (being an Arkansan working in Texas) and I enjoy the friendly, respectfully rivalry we have. If you guys beat us another year in a row though, I may lose it.
Much love for Walker. Heartbreaking. Hard working beast and a hell of a teammate.
We're getting into the the time of the year the hogs are at their best. Good luck to everyone we play. Nothing is a given, but you better be ready to play. These next few months are about mental toughness.
Welcome to Jim Chaney. I am still jealous of you guys stealing Pittman from us, but I do not know many Arkansas fans who were disappointed when Chaney left the team to head to Purdue. I do not think many of us who have had him as an offensive coordinator are shocked by losses like this. How many seasons below 9-3 will Smart last at Georgia?
Hated to hear this news about his father. I feel for the guy. Coach B seemed to understand the heartbreak of losing a loved one. As long as the Ragnow knows he does not owe the fans, the school, the state, or the game anything. Razorback nation loves and supports him.
Well, that's an unfortunate prediction...
Great marketing, horrible pizza.
Indeed, she was making fun of me for posting on sports message boards - calling me a hypocrite in regards of me having a life. Just ranting about spoiled fans taking what they have for granted.
I believe Miles should have been fired. Though, I believe the LSU fans, boosters, & AD deserve a few losing seasons after how they have handled the situation for almost a decade now. It is like a bunch of children were running the football program there, much like Arkansas when Houston Nutt was in the 3-year process of being fired - even though he deserved to be let go, as well. We got Petrino right after our miscues, and paid for it 2-fold when he wrecked his bike with his mistress. I love college football, but hate most fans & boosters. In the words of my wife, many need to get a life.
As an Arkansas fan, I hope Petrino does not end up at LSU. If he had a program that could recruit based on tradition (ie Florida, LSU, Tennessee), Petrino would be hard to stop.
As a Razorback fan, I am going to miss Les Miles on the opposing sideline.
That Michigan State game seems like it would be exciting to see Enos go up against his Alma mater, unless somehow he was coaching them.
Nothing needs to be given to us. Earn everything
Yes, I understand the reasoning. Preseason rankings are based on paper and traditions of schools. Everyone should earn their spot based on on-field results after the 3rd week.
**Warning, this is a bias comment** I have never had many problems with Tennessee throughout the years, but this year and off-season I have jealousy towards how they are being perceived in comparison with the Razorbacks. I never thought they should have been ranked if Arkansas was not. We proved ourselves on the field last year against them. I understand we lost some good players, but I think our coaches as a whole are better and we had seasoned back-ups ready to take the field. I am not going to lie, it is jealousy that makes me angry with Tennessee. I wish we would face each other this year.
I wish the Razorbacks could play the Vols next week. All of their preseason hype is just that. It bothers me that they were ranked at the beginning of the year. If we played, at least I could find some justification in the rankings of them being better than us.
My fear is seeing him at a place where he can get the recruits just from tradition alone (ie LSU, TN, Florida - just to name possible schools who may be looking in the future). He did not have that luxury with us at Arkansas and I do not want to see him on the other sideline.
Bobby Petrino, I hate that you are so good at what you do.
