Think we can make a bowl game?
« on: April 11, 2018, 08:44:07 am »

Some tool named Bartoo on Bo's show yesterday said not to expect much the first two years Morris is here based on what he did at SMU. As if it was an apples to apples comparison. I found it to be a pretty ignorant segment and felt dumber for listening.

Can? Yes. Do I think it is more likely than not? I don’t know, but it’s not something I am confident about.

They can. Will be tough.


Doesn't matter one way or the other



I do think it will take him a season or 2 to make the program "his"

SMU doesn’t recruit well.

U of A doesn’t recruit well relative to competition.

I think you can make a comparison.

We should be able to win the nonconference games, and win the home conference games vs. Ole Sanctions and Vandy.  That's six wins and a bowl.

To be fair, you pretty much just summed up Bo's show as it is every day.

7+ wins

Predictions? I do think we can get to 6, but 7+ seems like a stretch.

To say that both programs don't recruit well and there for are on the same level is ignorant. Morris has way more to work with here than he did at SMU and will have more access to better players on the recruiting trail.

6-8 wins. If not, I won't be impressed with the new staff. Schedule sets up for a minimum of 6 wins and most good coaches can work with the strengths of the team to get some wins before having all the players and their offense in place. BB stumbled out of the gate and never really got going. I hope that Morris can get off to a good start with this years schedule and make a bowl game.

I agree. Ironically, this schedule was setup for Bielema having a down year... lol

He also has to play better teams


Where does smu fall in the recruiting pecking order in their conference? I'd bet it is pretty close to where Arkansas falls in the SEC.

They’re not on the same level, but relative to their competition a comparison can be made. For whatever perceived increase in talent Morris gets now his competition is just as or more talented.

I'm going to go with "no" even though, as of now, we are undefeated, we could certainly make it to a bowl game. 

During the spring, Arkansas media never give us a clear accurate representation of realistic expectations of what will come in the fall.  For years I've refused to buy into the hype and it's saved me a lot of disappointment when reality crashes down on the homers LOL

Par for this year will be 4-8.  We should be able to duplicate Bert's efforts while sleepwalking and anything better than that will be gravy.

We should know fairly early on how it's going to go. At least put up a fight against Auburn and don't choke away yet another game against A&M it could be a decent year. Get stomped by Gus then lose to the Aggies again starting off 0-2 in the conference it will be a long year. Have to think some improvements on the defensive side of the ball will help quite a bit. Kicking game still looks awful which could very easily lose us a game or two that is winnable. I'm hoping for at least 6 with seeing improvement along the way.

Possibly, but probably a 5-7 kind of year. Fine with that. Bobby went 5-7 his first year. Just need to see a clear philosophy/game plan/culture change.
