Replacing all neutral games with home games.
« on: May 28, 2018, 11:52:29 pm »

Hypothetically in the past 20 years, had Arkansas replaced all Little Rock and Dallas games for home games (home and home for TAMU), how much do you think it would have helped the Hogs on the field? Do you think Arkansas would have beaten LSU in Fayetteville in 2006? Would they not have lost to Monroe and Toledo?

It wouldn't have helped any.  Our record of beating SEC teams in Fayetteville is not good, and in 2006 when we played LSU fan attendance was great and our record in Little Rock against big teams was better than in Fayetteville.  I agree that all games need to be moved to Fayetteville, but there's no need to bring up another tired run of the mill GSD again.

We now have a smart AD, so anything is possible.

Up until the ULM disaster our record in LR was amazing.

I don’t think it would have matter 12 years ago. I do think there have been some games in the last 5 years that would have gone better

Actually Jeff very much wanted out of Little Rock. That was part of his undoing.

New AD is scared and bows to the powers at be (currently, at least - not saying that is unreasonable). Disagree as you wish but that is the truth.

How much would it help your beloved ASU on the field to not go on the road and play bigger programs strictly for a big paycheck.

I don't think there is any effect on the field (game day), but what it does effect is the quality of team that is placed on the field over the long term.  Actually playing in Dallas could potentially help the quality.. if we would win those games, better showing better recruiting.

Little Rock though is a stain on our program, every time we play there it diminishes the long term quality of the team because opposing coaches can use that against us on the recruiting trail.  Before people go ape nuts, think about it.  In 2019 we only play 2 SEC games at home.. for players who value playing in the SEC that hits home.
