I am not content with losing or even morale victories, but I will accept our players trying their best & having a coaching staff who actually knows what they are doing. I don't really expect to win many (if any) games this year, but what I saw on the field yesterday for the Arkansas Razorback Football team was a hell of a lot better than I had seen in the past couple of years...played a solid first half & if we had some depth, probably could have been more competitive the second half....in the couple of years that Bielema's teams were competitive, no one really wanted to play us because we were big, rough & not easy to deal with.....would like to get back to that & eventually add skill players. Sam Pittman will get us there....probably not this year or next, but at least his has righted the ship for now...Go Hogs!
SDS Mailbag: Georgia’s QB situation, SEC home-field advantages and how the 2020 Heisman should be handled
As much as I hope we have improved, because I really love Sam (and I see most GA fans respect him) the Dawgs will walk all over us that first game.....Auburn, now there is where you will see a stout defense. I hope that by the next round we play GA, we will be much better team.
I think we will a conference game this year...when/how?, I have no idea...as a Razorback fan, I have WAY MORE CONFIDENCE in Sam I Am than Chokin'Chad Morris-the WORST D-1 Coach in modern football history.
Hey...I know we aren't that good, things have been bad-but when you are at the bottom-the only view is UP (eventually)...while we still may not be so good this year-we will LOOK GREAT in these uniforms, as Fernando used to say, 'It's better to look good than to feel good.'
I don't like FL,have never had a reason to pull for the Gators, but I have always LOVED Tim Tebow, he is on the Mount Rushmore of NCAAF & deserving of every honor, championship or good word spoken about him....God Bless.
All of this sounds great, however as a Razorback fan-I have gotten used to disappointment. I believe that Sam is the guy for the job because HE WANTS TO BE THERE....when no other coach really wanted job. Now as a college football fan-I don't believe we will get to play...I hope we have college football, but right now, I am not counting on it.
As an Arkansas fan, I'm not counting on instant success, but when you are as low as you can go...the only view is up. I expect we will be better, much better coaching before & especially during the game and also a better effort from our players. I like Sam, consider it a good hire & eventually, he will turn the us around, but if we play an SEC schedule only this year, there could be 'Hard Times' still for HOGS this year too....
When you are at the bottom, the ONLY view is UP....now, as a diehard Razorback fan-I don't have my hopes up that much-but Chad Morris is the WORST COACH I've ever seen, so given the fact he is gone bodes well, love Sam, I think he will eventually bring us around, but prob not this year....I would love to double our wins (which is 4) and perhaps actually win an SEC game, but sadly I am thinking Covid-19 will keep everyone off the field this year...missing baseball hurt, missing college football is even worse.
I am happy to have Sam Pittman has our HC...its not a splashy hire, but he has assembled a great staff, has been on the recruiting trail since the day he was hired and probably more than anything-I want Sam Pittman because he WANTED to come to Arkansas.....as you saw, not many folks did-we can't be any worse than we have been and the only direction for our program to go is UP.
I will applaud anyone who will come to Arkansas and give Coach Sam Pittman and his staff a chance.....God Bless Feleipe Franks, welcome aboard.
I have to admit, as an Arkansas fan-I am jealous, when I read that our AD was talking to Leach-I so wanted that hire....so apparently Ark did not offer enough money (which is ridiculous...because that is about the ONLY THING Arkansas has plenty of)....love Mike Leach, funny, entertaining and oh-he is a great coach too....I hope Sam Pittman does a good job, but it's Arkansas' bad to make a spashly hire & get a good coach at the same time...

SEC Basketball Power Rankings: Conference play starts with a bang and Georgia picks up signature win
I have as many SEC wins as Chad Morris does.....
I hope so, I have bought in w/the Pittman hire-when you are at the bottom, the only way to go is up. The staff is impressive.
I've always liked Bruce Pearl and his coaching...I think most all coaches who are competitive walk a fine line w/the rules.
I see Chad Morris is picking up in Auburn where he left off in Arkansas....Enjoy that hire.
Good Riddance to anyone who didn't want to help Coach Pittman...either you are for or against Ark. I am backing Sam Pittman 100%.....Thank you for wanting to BE AT ARKANSAS...as many folks including Chad Morris who didn't want to be there....if so, he would have moved his family there first thing. Chad Morris will be remembered as the WORST head in Ark History...you and Gus deserve each other.
Good Riddance....he sucked as a QB-too many interceptions.
Somebody please coach me up....does Chad Morris get his complete buyout from Ark and gets this job too?
Feel like we just lost another game....I really wanted Mike Leach (just like I really wanted Gus before), but like Gus-Leach used Ark to get paid more....I never wanted Kiffen, although he will make a big splash at Ole Miss...there are more guys mentioned that I wouldn't want than those I do....but the reality is apparently NO present or past big name coach wants to to come to Arkansas...

Good Riddance to ALL members of the Morris family. If you aren't going to move to Arkansas while CM was the head coach-we certainly don't want you playing here later on....You dragged our program down below what anyone could ever imagine & the fact you will always been known as the WORST head coach in Power 5 history (let alone the SEC) will speak volumes to your head coaching endeavors for the future...."Full-Tilt Boogie" my ass.
Chad Morris didn't know any better as he was not a Power 5 coach.
Sounds like most SEC fans agree CM had to go....but some of you are hung up on the payouts to Bert & now CM....Is Arkansas known for football?...No. Is Arkansas the star of the 'blooper reel' over the past few years?...Yes, but one thing most fans don't understand about our 'Hillbilly' state is that we have MONEY!!! Yes, just like 'The Beverly Hillbillies'.....Jerry Jones, the Walton Family (WalMart), Tyson foods (chicken)....just to name a few...writing checks for a new coach, old coaches, etc. is not a problem....as some of you have pointed out-finding a great coach willing to come to Arkansas is the biggest problem...after enduring Chad Morris for 2 years-I would welcome Bobby Petrino with open arms.....literally anyone who can take young players and show some type of improvement....which is something CM NEVER did. Thank God Chad Morris is gone.
In the words of The Rock, "It doesn't matter"...who starts, Ark will lose to Western KY this weekend, so afterwards-perhaps someone else will be choosing a starting QB. Personally I am pulling for Ty Storey to do well.
Have you guys actually seen us play this year? There is NO WAY the Razorbacks will win this game...relax, save up for Ole Miss.
I would love to see Mike Leach at Arkansas in the SEC....he would bring attention to a poor program much like Spurrier did at SC. We can't be any worse than we are right now....there has been zero improvement from last year to this year, which is a lack of coaching-CM IS IN OVER HIS HEAD, piss-poor decisions & just can't the best out of the players on his team. I don't expect another win this year. I hope that losing to Ty Storey & West KY, will once again demonstrate Chad Morris is NOT the coach who can restore Arkansas Football becoming competitive again.
In the words of The Rock, "It does matter..." what he said, Arkansas won't even score against Bama & will not be able to stop Bama from scoring. Roll Tide.
Please tell me where CM has been "Very Successful" in college as a head coach?...His best season at SMU was 7-5 and now that team without him as head coach is ranked, undefeated and just smoked a pretty good Temple team....Clemson has done just fine without him-he helped DeShaun Watson be a better QB-a guy who was already a Heisman finalist, but he is a horrible in-game coach and I have never seen our team be this bad for so long...we will have won a conference game since 2017 and will not win one this year. His recruits are now leaving left and right because they see their destiny.
