Wolfman, the only reason I commented on this thread is because a Mizzou fan implied that Pittman lied to a kid he had never met to get him to flip. The family’s tweet disproves this in my eyes but for the sake of being open minded I went down the rabbit hole. I think Pittman is very excited about flipping Curry as he is a very gifted OL with a very impressive offer list and that’s Pittmans bread and butter. EVERY program partakes in dirty recruiting, it happens but I don’t see Pittman committing recruiting suicide for a 3 star RB. I think it’s much more plausible that Missouri liked this kid but planned on transitioning him to a LB in the future, there’s nothing wrong with that but when you imply that the the only logical reason he could’ve possibly flipped to Arkansas is because Arkansas got dirty on the recruiting trail that’s when I think it’s “hog manure”. Kids change their minds like they change underwear and I think that’s what happened here but Missouri fans being salty over losing a 3 star RB is amusing especially when you guys got a much better one signed.
Tiger TD, Jesus man calm down there’s no need to get triggered and why do you hate Mr. Rogers so much. I assure you I’m not sensitive in the least but I do believe you can be an SEC fan and act like an adult at the same time. Recruiting can be shady I get that but you can still be classy and act like an adult.
I misspoke you didn’t say it but you certainly implied it from the start. It is possible that Arkansas coaching staff lied to this kid but it’s not very likely. That’s recruiting suicide and I don’t see Arkansas reaching out to a kid that they didn’t know and taking that risk for a 3 star RB. I’m done with this debate, you’re obviously of the opinion that you’re intellectually superior to everyone else and there’s no debating someone like that. Feel free to continue to hurl insults.
No need to apologize you’re stating your opinion and you’re entitled to it. I get it the article implies something you don’t like and you don’t agree with but i was amused at how you flipped that around and said it must have been Arkansas because Missouri isn’t capable of something like this. Take the homer glasses off, they make it hard to think rationally.
I’m not asking you to concede anything, I could care less if you concede anything. Floating conspiracy theories that an Arkansas coach is telling lies to a 3 star RB with very limited offers to flip him from Missouri is delusional, one of us definitely has our head in the sand and it’s not me.
How would Pittman make it up, how would he sell to the family that he knew the internal workings and intentions of the Missouri coaching staff? That’s a tough sell especially to a family you have never met. It’s much more plausible that Missouri liked this kid but wanted to transition him to a LB at some point in the future. You were the one that cared enough about these kids flipping to Arkansas that you got on a comment thread and called someone a liar.
How would Sam Pittman even know that Missouri was planning to play the kid at LB moreover how would he even be able to convince this kid and his family that he knew it. You can look it up Pittman didn’t even know this kid up until hours before his announcement, he literally had to see film before they offered him because he knew nothing about him. I can’t wait to hear how Arkansas “played dirty” to flip Curry, again stay classy Mizzou fans.
So you really think that this kids family just made this entire thing up? Also there is no way you classify Ray Curry as “meh” the kid had offers from several top 25 programs. “Signed with the liar” lol stay classy bud.
It is a bit of a gamble but I LIKE THIS HIRE! I get the skepticism but under the circumstances this is a great fit for this program.
With the exception of a few rebuilding seasons his record at Washington State is 43-21 including an 11 win season last year in PULLMAN WASHINGTON. I’m sure it’s next to impossible to recruit to Pullman and he has still found success there to the tune of 9-4, 8-5, 9-4 and 11-2. His offenses are consistently ranked in the top 10 in the country and he’s found success everywhere he’s coached. I do agree however that the defensive coordinator hire would have to be a solid one.
It is inexcusable to lose to a team starting a WR at QB and then allow that player to to complete 7 out of 11 passes on your defense. My biggest argument in defending CM has been his stellar recruiting and I still stand by that but if this program continues down the path they’re on the recruiting WILL dry up, it’s already starting with de commitments. I’m not for firing him halfway through his second season because I believe that could cost the program more than just money but my goodness at times our coaching staff looks completely inept. You can win at Arkansas, it’s been proven time and time again but the clock is ticking on this coaching staff and they’re running out of time.
Too late to say sorry? Justin Bieber ‘disappointed’ by Nick Starkel’s decision to destroy pregame shirt
Please God make it stop, hog fans have suffered enough.
Arkansas is terrible no doubt and this particular loss is beyond embarrassing but an Auburn fan calling another program a dumpster fire is hilarious. Was it last year or the year before Auburn fans were literally posting pictures of the Gus bus in flames. Check back with me at the end of the year when you’re trying to figure out if you’re going to fire Gus or give him an extension.

O’Grady is a beast when he wants to be.
He’s made some pretty bad decisions throughout his career, looks like he stepped over the line this time.
Knowing this guy he’ll probably roll up on a Harley wearing a Sugar Bowl hat.
Three of those schools you mentioned have never even been to the conference championship game for football.
Totally agree, I mean I get it we’re still in the dead period right now for sports and there’s not a whole lot to write about but c’mon man. This article wasn’t even a reach it was more delusional than anything else.
I’m a realistic fan and I get that we haven’t been super competitive since 2010 but really? There are schools in this conference who have never even been to the conference championship for football, (football seems to be Connors biggest reason for dropping Arkansas). I’m not for dropping any of the current schools but Arkansas for the most part is competitive year in and year out in baseball, basketball and with the exception of the past few years in football as well, not championship caliber by any means but competitive.
Those highlights from that 7 OT game still drive me crazy to this day. 22 was a gamer and a special athlete, prayers for his family.
After all the roster lost last season I was in the group that didn’t think they had a prayer of making it back to Omaha. It was a hell of a season just making it back, I mean sure it hurts to lose those two games the way they did but DVH shows no signs of slowing down.
I’m excited to see what we get out of the TE’s this season with fresh QB play. Lunney has definitely loaded that position with talent and turned it into a position of strength for this offense
I disagree, I think it’s a very overlooked position in today’s game. A good TE can almost transform an offense.
I always liked Briston, hate to see him go like this.
What can I say Dave Van Horn is worth his weight in gold.
The talent is there no question, they’re just having a tough season in Baton Rouge this year.
Dave Van Horn is worth his weight in gold, the man can flat out coach.
Shouldn’t you be worrying about the Gus bus going up in flames in a Waffle House parking lot midseason.
You really can’t tell me with all sincerity and a straight face that you thought Bret Bielema was the answer at head coach. Recruiting was regressing and so was the on field results, I like him he’s a good man but you can’t play Bama football against Bama with 3 and 4 star recruits. I don’t know if Morris is the answer or not but two things are for certain, time will tell and the man can flat out recruit
