One MAJOR thing that people are missing is this - in 2007, Arkansas was very one-dimensional, and EVERYONE knew that and that McFadden was the team's major weapon. Teams literally game-planned against him and stacked the box but could still not stop him. The 2007 Florida team was loaded with talent that eased Tebow's troubles. There's really no comparison about which player had to shine through the more difficult circumstances.
Oh, so he won't be fit to play?!
Are you kidding me?! This is a great hire!! It’s Missouri-freakin-State! Recruiting will instantly be better, and so to will the win column. It’s kinda hard to gut a program that has this team’s record. There’s practically NO way that this won’t work for this school, wherever it is..
Seems the GA slide is more than under way. No more national championship possibility in the future. You guys blew your chance!
Who's your grandmother?
Not a chance. Pipe dream.
Georgia bashes Mullen because they are afraid of him. #Truth. Florida is quickly getting to the point where they will knock off Georgia year after year, again. And, Georgia still hasn't won its national championship yet...
Apparently, it won't.
Of course you would. But, he ain’t stupid.
Hey, two in a row left you!
Time to go back to the cellar. I’m hearing Sylvester Croom is available.
Having second thoughts? 5-star RB Zach Evans will no longer be announcing his commitment at 2020 Under Armour All-American Game
Agree. Get over it everybody. Nobody cares about your poor players' feelings. Fragile little football players..
I can't even imagine what this dumba$$ must have done to be told to go home before the state championship game!! NEVER heard of that happening before. This kid will be a hand full..
He was a top 5 coach even back when he was at state. It was unreal where he took that team..
A young coach who's unproven will have a hard time winning over good coordinators. This type of guy needs a year or two of on the field success to win over others. A lot rides on year one...
One thing many have come to know - never count Hurts out.
The West coaches are about to Sh!+ on this guy sooo hard. Call it brick-layin. Oxford ain't no Boca. He'll find that out very soon...
Tough to tell. The guy was playing with the previous coach's players. What a win for him, he only had to wait 1 year! Who knows anything about his ability to recruit, or guide a program that's not already rolling for that matter..
Who knows. Arkansas really just needs to get to 7 wins with this next HC. They just need to be decent again, before anything else. And, who knows what kind of OC and offense he'll install... Can it really be worse than 2 wins?
Doing poorly at AZ doesn't mean he would do poorly in the SEC. It's a tough sell to get good recruits to want to go way out to AZ to a school with no facilities, hardly any name, in a conference that is not inspiring. Sumlin would probably do much better closer to home. Sometimes a coach has to stay in his area to be successful. He had some magic all around Houston. And the razorbacks need some more Houston magic.
They should consider Sumlin. He could recruit TX and make use of the current WR talent.
Aside from interim Barry Lunney Jr., another head coaching candidate still a possibility at Arkansas
They should opt for Freeze, Chizik, or Miles. To competitively recruit, they’ll need someone who has had some success in the SEC and recruited it well. Putting in a no-name with no past success will be a train-wreck! Who in their right mind would choose to play for Lunney over Kiffin!? Let alone any of the other great coaches. I agree with others - that they need to be thinking about who can get them back to 7 wins, then maybe they can find someone who can take them further..
This guy has been a head coach one year and has played with another coach’s players. #unproven
I mean, really, they could have just saved some money and never printed those...
UGA's window has come and gone. Good luck having success now that Florida is coming back. UGA had a few years to get this done, the few years that Florida was down. Welp, too late now. The division is about to be a lot harder to win.
