I take no joy in the Vols' downfall. I remember last year too well.
Wishing the young man a swift and complete recovery.
Got a feeling the Hogs will lose a couple early, and maybe drop out of the top 25, but they will be a tough out come conference season.
Kentucky over Florida? That *is* bold.
I know SDS would hate to put Arkansas on the list for *three* games in the Chad Morris era, but the North Texas "fair cat--Psych!!" game seems even worse than San Jose State. The game wasn't even close.
Ouch. Not exactly a vote of confidence in the Hog QBs. Anyway, thanks for your service, Mike; you produced some great memories. Will South Carolina be throwing a lot? I know Mississippi State will. I suspect Ole Miss will.
That's puzzling, from both ends. But good luck to the young man.
Yikes! Easy choice for the Tide, given the success on their receivers and the big stage on which they play -- unless he wants early and substantial playing time. Don't know enough about Alabama to know whether those things are available there. but I suspect not to the extent they are available at Arkansas.
Not gonna argue that Oats doesn't deserve COY. That's not the point. The point is that Musselman deserved some mention in this article, after taking another team to the Sweet 16 (as he did with Nevada) and doing it without two NBA-caliber players who opted to go pro, in Isaiah Joe and Mason Jones. Picked to finish no better than sixth in the league and finished second. Won 12 straight conference games and split with Alabama. Sweet 16. Muss deserved mention as much as Barnes.
Muss is amazing. I just hope we can hold on to him. Go away, Minnesota.
He's a good guy who did a lot for the Hogs. I wish him the best.
Thanks for the year, Feleipe! I doubt we could have ended that 19-game conference losing streak without you. Best of luck always.
He played us like a second-hand fiddle to get his extension, but I wish him no harm.
I think if there is a barometer of how much Arkansas has improved since back-to-back 0-8 seasons, it was Auburn. After three years of combined 137-33 losses, the Razorbacks were a bad call away from escaping a 30-28 loss to the Tigers. Pretty far removed from a 51-10 whipping a year ago.
I don't think this game is a barometer of anything, except maybe the Hogs' willingness to keep playing hard after they fall way behind. Even without Waddle, the Tide doesn't look like the same team that only beat Mizzou by 19 and Ole Miss by 15. Saban has his guys focused on what they do best and peaking at the right time. Ask Auburn and LSU. Against a thin and exposed Arkansas defense, I look for the Tide to roll up five touchdowns and a field goal by halftime. What happens after that just depends on how much Saban wants to rest (or risk) his starters.
I do know that (1) the San Jose State Arkansas loss to went 5-7 for the year, and (2) no SEC team should lose to San Jose State.
And how many were ready to help this season besides Slusher and Coates? Takes time, unless you are Alabama. Even takes time for LSU.
So, umm, by "out there" I mean ready to play in the SEC as a freshman.

On second thought, it depends on results over time -- much longer time than Mizzou has played Arkansas. Is Ohio State-Michigan a rivalry game despite the Buckeyes' eight straight wins? Depends on how long you think it takes to gain, then lose, rivalry status.
I am not going to forget that Pittman was working with the same players (with Franks out and Smith subbing for Boyd) that went 0-fer in the conference last year, lost to San Jose State, and got whipped like yard dogs by Western Kentucky. Except for backup freshman safety Myles Slusher and a grad transfer or two, there's not a single Pittman recruit out there. You may not agree with me that he's made the most of the talent he had, but to say we're settling for mediocrity or should be thinking of our next coach is to overlook how bad it's been for three years.
Disappointing. Guess its next man (Trelon Smith) up. No size and experience after that. Guess Boyd will still have a shot at the Senior Bowl. Hearing they've invited Jamie Newman in spite of his opt-out.
Congrats, LSU. No excuses. Finley will be a good one. Still believe we're on our way back.
