At least Arkansas isn't the squad faking injuries after first downs. I counted 5 times your tigers did just that. Trash
Agree here, but ultimately we need to get to a level that calls become irrelevant. The bigger issue I see this year has been Depth. Lose Catalon and the game is over. Lose 3-4 players on a D-line it costs you an LSU win. I'd also so, if Arkansas played Auburn or LSU, there is no doubt who'd win and that makes you look forward to next year with recruiting, playbook knowledge etc.
Sam Pittman blasts Arkansas fan on social media over his handling of the Jalen Catalon targeting call
I think Arkansas handled this the way they should have. If the HC makes the complaint to the league office he gets slapped with a fine - Like Lane Kiffin. If the AD makes the complaint, not only does it carry more weight, there is also no consequence. To bad it all falls on deaf ears in Birmingham anyway. I have no doubt Pittman stand up for the players.
Part of that was defensive fatigue too. There was no rush all day along the D-line due to inexperienced players filling in for those out in quarantine. Not to mention, the offense didn't give the Defense much help for most of the game. 3rd down conversions we atrocious. Odom isn't to blame for that...that's Briles...after all it is a team sport.
You better believe it. I'm not even upset about this game other than the poor refs. But considering Arkansas was down 6 D-lineman, this game result was as to be expected.
Arkansas AD defends Jalen Catalon following targeting call, hopes to change upcoming suspension for DB
Easy there honcho. HY us just defending an athlete in his program. He's not being derogatory...if anything his actions are endearing. Arkansas has been hosed by the refs this year. If this is targeting, we might as well start playing flag football.
If Morris was still the coach, Florida would have hung 70. Probably 50 in the first half. Personally I've underestimated how good Florida is. Mullen coached lackluster talent at MSU to win so this is what he's doing with real talent. There might be a new dominate team in the SEC to contend with Bama. I for one am ready to see Saban get knocked off his high horse once and for all.
Auburn is 1-4 after all. LSU will show why.
First off, the record is wrong in the article. Arkansas leads the all time series. Secondly, Hunter did not in any way change on his previous comment from the summer. He's contractually obligated to play the game in Arlington until 2024. Beyond that it is to be determined. He's never stated otherwise. Stop trying to start something false. That said, I do thin both ADs would advocate to have the game back on campus. Its a big deal to have a home and home for the fans and to allow recruits on campuses which you cannot currently have on the road regardless if your the "home" team in Arlington.
When Filipe threw 4 TDs and there was nothing you could do to stop it.
Good luck with Chad...your gonna need it. Gus clearly took over play calling in the 3rd quarter.
Not True. Looked up the rule. Fumbles are reviewable plays regardless if they were blown dead or not. This was a fumble caused by a backwards pass. The refs even ruled it a backwards pass....which created a fumble which Arkansas recovered. The NCAA rule book "Dead & Loose Ball, Article 3, D, 2. clearly states this. Page 112 of the rulebook if you care too look for yourself. Hogs won this game 100%. These refs and especially the replay officials should not be allowed to ref a game the rest of the season.
Morris has already shown in ineptitude in the 2 weeks of play at Auburn. Arkansas was right to ditch him and Auburn will learn the hard way its seems. The guy is a high school coach at best. Keep in mind, he was a nobody until he asked for Mazlan's help. If it weren't for Malzahn, we wouldn't even be having this conversation. I have to think Malzahn will call the plays Saturday just to save face because Arkansas looks ready to play bog boy football again.
They are technically. They are NOT mentally. These guys were lazy and unmotivated by Morris and company. These guy are highly motivated now and it's obvious.
The gimmicks were definitely Petrino. At the time nobody really cared because we were winning. I never understood the sledgehammer helmet stickers... Glad we are going retro here. Get back to your roots of the Peyton Hillis, D Mac days.
Florida State is one of those legacy schools thanks to Bobby Bowden that recruits itself in the Florida market especially in years when both UF and Miami are treading water. That played a big factor in the major talent Jimbo's FSU teams had. The last two years you've seen a major recruiting shift within Florida because of Dan Mullen's Florida ties and UF success. Bowden is not the coach you think he is IMO. He'll go down as a one hit wonder as accurately compared to Gene Chizik.
Really JTF? Being a Georgia fan should you know better? Hogs will beat both Mississippi schools at the least. Mark it down. Might even beat Tennessee and Mizzou in the east. Hogs have struggles with no real coach. Morris was a joke. Good luck with Auburn.
Bret was a curse to Arkansas and Chad Morris was the nail in the coffin.
The special teams coach is the last coach Arkansas wanted to keep. Good riddance ot that guy. I've seen enough Arkansas botched punts to last a lifetime.
I have a hunch this is going to happen.
It doesn't matter what offense you run if you don't have an oline worth its salt. You could say Beilema was successful at Arkansas because of Pittman. When Pittman left for Georgia, Arkansas' oline went south fast and we haven't won since. Also, why do we assume Pittman will run a ground and pound offense? He's never been a HC! IMO, he'll get an OC that understand the importance to run the ball that opens up the entire offense to make better use of Burks and the whole snag crew. If you can get 5+ yards rushing on first down, it changes the play calling we haven't seen in at least 3 years. Arkansas losing streak is so bad beaicof the inability to do anything effective on first down regardless of run or pass all because of the offensive line. Pittman's success hinges a LOT on who he gets as his coordinators.
This hog fan would take Houston back without hesitation.
To answer, many dont realize Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones played for Frank. Then there was Lou Holtz, Ken Hatfield, and Houston Nutt. Even Houston went down to the Bayou and beat #1 LSU. Nutt was also a muffed punt from beating Urban Meyer's Florida in the 2006 SEC title. Then came Petrino who most Georgia fans know well about (Atlanta Falcons). He had the winning-est 2 seasons in Arkansas history. Then even Bret Beilema shut out both LSU and Ole Miss. Arkansas does have great competative history....but everything changed in April of 2012.
I hear ya and agree. I'm just saying he has a bulldog isolationist personality. Lets be real, it'll never happen. Its far more likely that Lane Kiffen will be fired at FAU and Arkansas hires him as the OC.
I'd take that but I'm not sure Bobby is capable of being a subordinate.
If Starkel doesn't get the start this week, I'm off the Morris wagon.
Good! I got nervous every-time that guy stepped foot on court. He is a sloppy player notorious for turn overs.
Its about time we had an Athletic Director that actually listens to the fans! Now never change them again!
