  • That may be the first reference to ever go over my head Haha


    There is nothing wrong with being positive. I think in a year or two Morris can have us back to a respectable level, and possibly more! I just don't think he is a miracle worker. And he doesn't have to be 


    I would love them to come out and shock me and the world, I just think so many things are stacked against them to do that right now. I do think this year will be more fun to watch than last year, even If they only win one more game.
    At least you have a sense of humor.  This is Sting Ray: https://www/youtube.com/watch?/V=Uyd0fEJt-Ls  No harm intended, just a little kidding.  You may indeed be right.  I would think it has been a wildly successful season if we go 6-6.

  • I don't take myself too seriously at all.

    Those who take themselves too seriously are ones who bitch and moan and cry and think the sky is falling and Morris was the worst hire ever if he doesn't win 8 games in year one.
    You are doing it now.  Please spare me the self-righteousness.

    Then spare me the anguish and existential crisis if he doesn't win 8 in year 1.

    Deal?

    No deals with you.  I will say as I please within the rules of Hogville.

    Lol. One more than I expected.

  • I'm gonna call the Miss St. game a loss for the Hogs for a few reasons...1. It's in Starkville, and that is a tough place to go win a ballgame. 2. Their starting QB (Fitzgerald) is a dynamic and elusive play maker. 3. They have 8 starters returning on offense, and 6 on defense.
    With a little bit of luck, maybe this new head coach of theirs will turn out to be not as good as Dan Mullen.
    I am expecting Mullen to win a national championship at Florida in the next five years.

    I wouldn't be shocked if Mullen has some major issues at Florida. Just a hunch.

  • Here's a prediction for you . . . I'll put the over/under for "number of the above predictions that are - objectively - 'correct' after the end of the 2018 season" at 5 1/2.  And I'm going with . . . the Under.

    By the way . . . if your current gig doesn't work out, you might try reading tea leaves, or otherwise telling fortunes.
    Orrr...I could just continue doing whatever I want to do and ignore your lame@ss snarky remarks.  :-*

  • I think we beat LSU.
  • #60 by bigpigpimpin on 27 May 2018
  • I was with you until you said 8-4. After watching the spring game, I just have to laugh at that prediction.

    We are slow, small, don't throw it well, dont catch it well, and putting in a whole new system. If we go 8-4 Morris should run for governor, president, and Mr. Universe. 8-4 lol
  • #61 by GuvHog on 27 May 2018
  • I think we beat LSU.

    LSU does have some issues, especially on the offensive side of the line of scrimmage. They lost the starting QB, the Starting All everything RB, plus 2 starting Wide Receivers off of last year's team and may have lost a couple of OLinemen too. This is the first year where Orgeron's recruiting will really show as many of the Mad Hatter's recruits are gone.

    Don't put much stock in what you saw at the Spring game. They'd only had 12 practices so the coaches knew the offense wouldn't be anywhere close to being where they want it to be. There are still a lot off practices left and you can bet the QB's will be working on their passing all summer. The 1st and 2nd team defenses were much better than I expected them to be and a lot farther along than I expected.

    That's why I think we beat them. Ed O is horrible and people will see that again soon. He was not successful at Ole Miss or USC. He won't be successful in corndogville either. Arkansas gets the boot back this year.

  • As far as a loss to the Necks (at least that's what the Rebels
    used to call them in the old days) of Misstake, I thought Fitzgerald
    graduated? Misstake won't beat us without a QB like Fitzgerald
    or the Dallas QB, Didn't we break his leg last year anyway?

    Pete Fiutak, College Football News (May1st) predicts possibly eight wins for Razorbacks in 2018:

    "Guessing The Preseason Regular Season Win Total Will Be Set At … 7.5
    After winning four games last year, will there really be a three-win improvement?  At least.
    The Hogs should be able to get by Eastern Illinois, at Colorado State and North Texas for a nice base of wins, and they’d better get past Ole Miss, Tulsa and Vanderbilt at home. And then it gets tricky.
    Where are the other victories coming from? At Auburn, Texas A&M, LSU, at Mississippi State or at Missouri? There’s no Georgia or Florida on an SEC slate that’s relatively manageable.
    Yes, doubling last year’s win total is really possible."

  • #68 by nwahogfan1 on 30 May 2018
  • For Red and all the other Hog fans predicting a 8 win season when we are breaking in a completely new staff with a completely new offensive and defensive schemes  and new QBs.  You should go to put your money down in Vegas and you can win lots of money if your Wish comes true.    Let me know if any one puts a big bet down because then and only then will I know you are serious and not just being a Hog Fan. 

    I think Vegas has the W/L line at 5.5 so you can go over and win a bunch of money.

    Does he predict who our starting QB will be?   I think predicting over 6 wins in May with out a starting QB named is a complete guess with out much merit.

    Bielema isn't the coach anymore. Otherwise there is zero logic behind it.

    Good post.

    That being said --- can I bet on the under and still be a Hog fan?

    Or to be a real Hog fan, do I have to have buy into the hype for, like you said, year one with brand new coaches and brand new schemes?
    Of course, that means finding the next cliff to jump off of if we don't win 8. In year one under a new coach. In year one with brand new schemes.

  • 13. Arkansas will finish the 2018 season 8-4, 4-4 in SEC...losses to Alabama, LSU, at Auburn, and at Miss St.

    If this team achieves a dyslexic result of last year's overall record, I'll buy you a dinner and a bottle of champagne at any restaurant in LR. Per usual, everyone here is ramped up about next season. That is the case every year with the fringe fans who read and comment here. Reality is, the team's depth is thinner than usual and there will be season-ending injuries before the first kickoff. Further, this team's talent level is down. How do I know this, especially when recruiting rankings argue otherwise? Because I have seen it on the field over the past 2 seasons. Slow at every position, inability to properly tackle, lack of hustle, skill players not up to par. For examples:  CK is no AA or BA, or TW or RM. RB's are not as good as in past years either. Certainly WR quality is WAY down from the Petrino years.

    Much more likely this team will have another 4-8 than a 8-4. Going to be rough year, but I am glad for the new head coach...Fatty was taking this program to new lows. I believe fans will see improvements however subtle they may be. Morris will build on it and in the next few seasons, I think we will see results in the W-L record, just not this coming season. Winning 5 games will be good. 6 wins will be great year.

    Concurrence. If Morris pulls a Nutt in his first year, give him a nicer new contract for next half decade.

  • Here are my Baker's Dozen Predictions (best guesses) for the Razorbacks 2018 season...:

    1. Cole Kelley will start at QB. Ty Storey might get a few looks too, but I think that in the end, Kelley is the man, at least for the next two seasons.
    Noland is QB1 on Day 1.

    It's typical fan psychology.  The assumption is everyone on your team will be better while everyone else the same or worse.

    Fans always want the new guy to start at QB. Barring a rash of injuries, Noland and Jones will both redshirt.

    However, you may be able to see Noland play some on the baseball diamond next year for Arkansas.

    I agree with this. Arkansas already has 4 QBs on campus who will not redshirt. That makes a redshirt for Jones and Noland highly likely.
