Although it probably occurred just as the cosmos ordained, I still can't get caught up in the Lane vs Leach revelry due to the fact that my prideful spirit can't get past the fact that both shunned Arkansas. Plus my favorite and perhaps the greatest Rock Drummer ever, Neil Peart, died this week. I need a hug.....
The extra week does give the players some time to let the bruises acquired after 13 games heal up a bit. Only positive I can think of to justify the delay.
Yes we are. Getting 3* guys to play like 4* guys is as imperative at Arkansas as it is at KY. And thanks.
Another winner... CSP shaping up to be Frank Broyles 2.0
Would have been a travesty had this award went to anyone else...
This needs to be re-visited after the early signing period. Not expecting any miracles, but I do expect CSP to land more than 6 recruits...
My thoughts exactly. Good Luck Coach Lunney.
Is there any other job besides Head FB Coach that pays a huge severance bonus for failure? Cudos to HY for taking a stand against this ridiculous practice.
Congrats. Wishing him success. Tough situation, perhaps he can turn things around.
Thanks sir. And hoping you guys hire works well for you also. Perhaps at some point the BLR will actually be a ballgame...
So nice to see all the Georgia fans wishing CSP well. This is how SDS USED to be before all the trolls came onboard. Sportsmanship and intelligence used to be the norm on SDS, not the exception... Thanks for showing class guys..
I for one am on board. Why? 1) He WANTS to be at Arkansas. Not there just to use it as a stepping stone to a more prestigious position. 2) Players love him. He will lift morale and get these young gentlemen thinking and performing as a TEAM again. The last half of this season our guys looked as if they would rather be elsewhere. 3) Reputedly one of the best recruiters in the nation. 'Nuff said. 4) Very familiar with the SEC. CCM had NO IDEA what he was walking into. Yes it is a concern that he has no experience as a HC. We'll see how quick he is on the uptake soon enough. I think he will adjust just fine. Hopefully he will follow Ed O's example, make smart hires and trust his coordinators to do their jobs. I'm happy.... WPS...
I LIKE IT !! I LIKE IT A LOT !! Helluva recruiter. Will likely put together a helluva staff. Most important, he will make this a friggin' TEAM again.
Congrats on the hire. Hope he serves you well and sticks around for a while....
Two candidates say no so we're dead in the water now??
You guys want him Tigurr?? I don't think we do anymore.
Stoops and Gran 2020. I mean really. Skill positions depleted by graduation, 2 QBS down. No problem, we just put the most talented player on the team behind center and scheme to his strengths. Amazing. They should be in the White House. If I had a COTY vote, I know where it would go. Congrats on pulling a great season out of a potential train wreck.
You're wrong about one thing. The Piglets HAVE talent, they just play like a sandlot team because we hired a coach who couldn't lead, and refused to adjust his scheme to fit the personnel on hand.
"...will play their first game under interim coach…I honestly don’t know his name." BARRY LUNNEY, Jr... Isn't research part of a journalist's job? It's not like you had to drive to Fayetteville and ask, google...
1) this is clickbait. 2) I suppose we COULD do worse. 3) I BELIEVE we CAN do better. 4) this is clickbait. 5) God, please let this just be clickbait....
What Boss Hog said... We need a guy who already schemes to utilize the athletes we have, otherwise tack 3+ more years to the rebuild process.
Agree... Nutt's day has come and gone. Too any fans still have a bitter taste in their mouth concerning the way his tenure ended. The program needs a new set of wheels, not a retread.
LOL.. I'm praying just as hard that Aubie spanks Bama so the Barn will proclaim him a hero and give him a raise and a lifetime free pass for meals at waffle house to stay...
no No NO NO NO NO..... He can't seem to develop a QB.... Don't say Cam Newton, that kid needed no development, he was born to QB... Gus was offered $7M to come home 2 years ago. He used that as leverage to get a raise from Aubie. Smart on his part, but a bridge burning move as far as I'm concerned. I hope H.Y looks at it that way as well.. Just... NO !!!
A lot of the fan base probably agrees. After throwing for less than 100 yards against a group of 5 squad the air raid would certainly be entertaining. 87 yards passing might have won a few games, in 1935...
Yep. If CCM had Quinn Grovey, Clint Stoerner, Ryan Mallet, Matt Jones and Pete Burks (remember him?) on roster, He'd be trying to sell us on Pete...
Can't argue. The young man is a lot of fun to watch. I couldn't help enjoying watching, even when he was making my Hogs look like a middle school defense. Definitely deserves recognition...
