Title: Bo being negative
Post by: twistitup on February 08, 2018, 06:18:59 pm
The guy just oozes negativity.....
Angry lil feller- doesn't think J Long should have been fired...disappointed it didn't work out for his drinking buddy CBB

He loves the recruiting class being in the 50's...he has that childish 'told you so' attitude that makes a person want to puke.

He's not pulling for a turnaround...it's obvious

We wouldn't have cracked the top 40 with Bert.  And we all know Bert couldn't win unless he had a talent advantage.

Obviously I wish we had a higher ranked class but if it's the price to pay to rid ourselves of Bert, it's a small price to pay.

He used his platform to prop up a failing CBB and JLong - but is now using his platform to create dissension within the fanbase...

His glass is half empty w Coach Morris - strange he is not excited for change after the mediocre seasons we have been having.

Next thing you know...Wayne will be bragging about all the money he made in the stock market today. Come to think of it, maybe that's why BO was sooo negative today - he might have a big chunk of money in the market.

I don't know the reason why...but you could feel it through the radio.

I realize I can change the channel, I just don't understand the lack of optimism for a coach that has been on the job a month.

If someone truly liked Bielema, why wouldn't he like Morris? I admit that I really wanted Norvell, but now I'm pretty convinced we hired the right guy. Norvell was a flash in the pan and/or trouble waiting to happen. I can't think of one reason that Morris isn't our guy.

I'm really not trying to trash Bo....I've listened to his show for years and I know he likes to stir the pot, but it usually has SOME merit.

Now it more like a little child that is angry and refuses to be happy - even when change 'for the better' is happening in front of his face. He will dismiss facts to stay on his negative agenda- kind of confusing.

Just listened for about 10 minutes, but I didn't get negativity, just a bit of reality.  No matter how good you feel about the guys coming in, there weren't many of them, so that means we are going with what we already have.  How does that make you feel?

You bring in 25-28 kids and it's easier to find 5 or 6 that will contribute right away.  You bring in 14 and odds are there won't be as many to help right away.  That means whatever depth you had to end the year is what you still have.  Not a great situation to be in for us.  A team like Bama, not so much a problem because they have great depth.

Morris's success next year isn't going to be based on this recruiting class.  it will be based on whether he can get more out of our current team than BB could.

Bret wasn't a bad recruiter by arkansas standards, so Morris should have an average amount of talent to work with.

Great, thanks for the in-depth perspective.

On another note...why did he want JLong to stick around so bad? Was he in a business relationship with the guy? It's almost like he lost money on the deal ...otherwise, why would he even care?

I actually heard Bo defending Morris to a couple idiot callers today.

One of our wonderful fans said that John L had a higher recruiting class than Morris...... despite the fact that John L wasn't hired until after the 2012 recruiting class.

Bart (I have no idea what he does - is he an intern?) on the other hand was being SUPER negative.

Bo actually cut off and hung up on tiger bait (yesterday) when he was making fun of our recruiting class.

out of 50+ calls....that is all you have. I understand there are exceptions - but OVERALL - him and his sidekick are negative about the future...in an over-exaggerated kind of way. I just don't understand the basis for ANY negativity...CMM just got here w a new staff. At this point we know nothing...Bo was VERY clear - he didn't approve of the JLong dismissal - and said CBB was 2 wins away from still being here (he is still in defense mode for some strange reason)

You have any quotes or anything else to prove your case.

I gave you two instances that I heard.

Bo kept repeating that the reason why our class was so slow was because Morris was hired late and that the early signing period hurt us.

I didn't hear him say that Morris needed to be fired or that he was a horrible recruiter etc.

I gave examples above about the JLong and CBB situation

....kept repeating we are WAAYYYY BEHIND, WAAYYY BEHIND (he doesn't know this)

....his minion called one caller 'stupid' for saying there may be talent on the team already from past recruiting

- not giving any callers credit for facts related to recruiting and how the numbers work - instead cutting them off to say IT IS WHAT IT IS - in a very condescending way. He was being a jerk and his sidekick was even worse. Something is strange....lots of butthurt in that studio
Sometimes it's not what you say it HOW you say it and the overall tone and attitude of the program. Amazing - fans feel a fresh start and BO is still hurt by the past in an obvious way. WHY is he still talking about CBB being 2 wins away from still being here - live in the present.

I think you are hearing what you want to hear.  Bo is a jerk to most of his callers b/c most of them are idiots.  For example, he went off on tigerbait and told him that the reason why our class was ranked so poorly (on Rivals) was because we were penalized for every spot below 20.  Dead silence from tigerbait. He didn't know how the rankings system worked.

The main thing that pissed me off is that he doesn't correct and cut off the callers more.  We have a chit ton of idiots who love to call radio shows.  I heard a caller blame his poor wages at Wal-Mart due to the stadium expansion.  It really hope some of the callers are plants just to get people to tune in.

Did you not read the examples in the above post? He is still arguing CBB would be here w 2 more wins and that JLong should not have been fired.

There are several more example in the post and more that was said...it's not just my opinion - I was with a group of 7 listening and nobody could understand the arguing and negativity. His overall tone was a downer...it is what it is. A guy was talking about the numbers and how they worked - Bo cut him off and said we covered that yesterday, let's not try to paint a pretty picture - this was one of the worst recruiting classes ever....c'mon that is crazy to put this class on CCM - he just stepped in the freakin' door.

He used his platform to prop up a failing CBB and JLong - but is now using his platform to create dissension within the fanbase...

His glass is half empty w Coach Morris - strange he is not excited for change after the mediocre seasons we have been having.

This after pimping Morris as the greatest thing since lace up shoes during the coaching search, and attacking and berating everyone who dared to think we as a program should try to do better if we could.

My ears have finally stopped bleeding, and my pulse rate has stabilized ... and it all started with turning the Alco-Hobbit and his merry band of ass hats off. Permanently.

Bo is angry he lost his security blanket and does not have inside access he once had - it messed up his business plans and he's pissed.

"How many stars do you think the Razorback program has? 2, 3, 4,? Just say you are 3 star....how can you beat out the top teams for the good recruits? Look at TX -how do you do that, look at all the competition - I don't know if it's possible......look who you are up against" blah blah blah

This. Iíve lived in neighboring SEC states for 18 years now, and Iím trying to think of any radio hosts that are outsiders that hold and command a talk show where they have a pulpit to denegrate the local team? I find it stunning that someone with no true loyalty to the statesí flagship athletic program can hold a position like that. It comes across as ďself sabotage ď by continuing to enable this.

I think Bielema probably would still be where with two more wins.  If he had beaten Missouri and VA Tech in 2016 I think last season would be seen as more of an anomaly with the injuries. I'm not saying that would have been the right move, but I think that's what would have happened. I think a lot of talk radio is like wrestling, you have to have story-lines and things to keep it interesting.  Bo tends to take a little opposite side of the fence from what ever the public consensus is at the time.  That drives callers into the show.  When things were going south on Bielema, he took the defensive, Now folks are optimistic on Morris he's taking a slightly different tack. It is a little frustrating that although since last year Bielema and company were warning that this would be a low rated class because of how many people they were going to be able to take and now everyone acts like this is somehow and indictment of Morris.  There were going to be even fewer scholarship slots under Bielema presumably so our ranking would have been even worse than it currently is.  Not to say the recruits would be worse, but the actual ranking due to more zeroes in the average.

He used his platform to prop up a failing CBB and JLong - but is now using his platform to create dissension within the fanbase...

His glass is half empty w Coach Morris - strange he is not excited for change after the mediocre seasons we have been having.

I listen to him quite a bit lately while driving to games, and I do not hear negativity at all. Just yesterday he pointed out the class would have been ranked alot higher if they had signed 24 instead of 16, and that they did a great job considering they did not even have a defensive staff until after the bowls.

My biggest problem with Bo is the accept the mediocrity mantra he pushes. You are Arkansas know your place. Then he will spend half his show extolling  the virtues of Saban and theTide. I know it is insignificant but I wonder if it hurts instate recruiting. I often wonder if he receives a little payment on the side.

When someone says something like " the coach is just playing favorites " Bo asks for specifics as to how the caller knows this. Of course it is answered with stuttering and and ums and Ahs, followed by " I just know it and you're just a protecting someone ".

Bret wasn't a bad recruiter by arkansas standards, so Morris should have an average amount of talent to work with.

The guy just oozes negativity.....
Angry lil feller- doesn't think J Long should have been fired...disappointed it didn't work out for his drinking buddy CBB

He loves the recruiting class being in the 50's...he has that childish 'told you so' attitude that makes a person want to puke.

He's not pulling for a turnaround...it's obvious

I tuned in yesterday to listen to his show and after the first 15 minutes I was thinking, this guy has an agenda.  Bo was intent on dumping on this years recruiting class.  A caller started explaining how you lose points toward your ranking if you don't sign 20 and Bo didn't want to hear any of that.  It became pretty obvious he was on a mission yesterday so I just turned him off. 

Bo was interviewing Morris Wednesday after the signings.  Morris said these guys are coming here to play for the University of Arkansas, but also for the entire state of Arkansas.  Bo asked "Is that something that you are trying to make sure Razorback Fans hear, that it's the entire state's program, just because of things that maybe you've been told coming into the job?"  I thought that was a really stupid, condescending question, basically asking Morris if he is pandering to state.  Of course Morris is trying to build unity around the state for the program.  It seemed like the nature of the question caught Morris off guard for a second.

Bo's starting to rub me a little wrong these days.  If I need a dose of negativity I can always log on to Hogville.  I don't need it from Bo.  We made a coaching change to get away from just that type of vibe around the program.

And I thought it was a good question because Morris. not being from here, may have been told certain things about how some parts of the state have felt neglected and that he, along with the University, needed to fix that.

And of course it is pandering to parts of the state.

My opinion on Bo is that it hurts his business future revenue and his status as a person/insider when BB was fired.  His friendship with BB gave him status. I have heard him mention texting back and forth with Justin Moore about games, or having dinner with other SEC coaches.  I seriously think stuff like that was because of his friendship with BB and it started with the show he made. He probably lets his disappointment come thru in his conversation some times and that's kind of understandable.

Also if you actually know something why should you have to reveal how you know, he doesn't? Generally because he is either speaking in vague terms, general ideas, or making darn up.

I live in Oklahoma so I don't listen to Bo, but anyone who makes the argument that we made the wrong decision in firing Long and CBB is just not correct.  CBB was done here.  He hit his pinnacle in 2015 and has been on a downward slide since.  He needed to go.  I believe strongly in this new staff, and I believe we will ultimately be way more successful under Coach Morris than if we had stuck with CBB.  No doubt in my mind.

Honestly I do not know why anyone would listen to talk radio ( be it sports or news or whatever ) for more than maybe 5 mins unless they have a good interview on. I may listen to Bo when I am going to a game, but usually it is in the background while my partner and I talk.

When I do listen, of course. But it has been the same on Arkansas sports radio for 20 years. All the way back to Chuck's show. What people want is a place to be able to ramble and make unfounded claims and not have their statements challenged. We see the same thing here, and when someone does get their opinion challenged they get their panties in a wad and say they do not have to prove anything.

And it is not any different on any other caller driven show anywhere. People want to pop off and have no one disagree with them and if the host does challenge them they get accused of protecting whatever team is being discussed.

I don't listen to sports talk radio or TV hardly at all.  I do have a suggestion and I'm too lazy to do this myself.

If anyone cares enough to invest the time, why not take the average recruit percentage, that actual number that recruiting services issue each recruit, add that up and divide by 16, then multiply that number by 25 for a full load of recruits and see where we actually come out against the Nation.  I know we ended up in the 60s based on our actual recruits.  Likely we would have ended up in the 30s with a full load.  Thats just a guess.

And Bo made that exact point. The class is ranked where it is because of only having 16 players in it. If I read the list correctly, only 2 teams signed fewer players, Stanford and I cant remember the other one.

I'm a Hog fan and like to keep up with the happenings as I can, and I know as well as anyone that listens to the show much that if they are successful next season the same guy (Bart I believe) that was calling the guy an idiot for saying there was talent on the current roster will be giving the previous coaching staff credit for having left so much talent....and Bo will too....just how they roll...I'm ok with it, they have to keep the pot stirred to have a talk show.

We wouldn't have cracked the top 40 with Bert.  And we all know Bert couldn't win unless he had a talent advantage.

Obviously I wish we had a higher ranked class but if it's the price to pay to rid ourselves of Bert, it's a small price to pay.

Someone 'spained' to me some weeks back that if we could have filled out the rest of the class to the 25 allowed with 3-stars our ranking would be somewhere up around 40-35 +/-.

I think all of us who truly love the Hogs are saddened that it didn't work out for either Long or Bret. Heck, had they done the jobs we had expected we would not have only saved a boat load full of money in buyouts and "start overs", but would not have been the overall mess we're in today. If anyone wants to be angry and upset then just look at the fact neither was getting it done after five years and place the blame on the two folks who ultimately screwed things up. Placing the blame on the folks who had to make the final (difficult) decisions to make the necessary changes as well as attacking the overall fan base who expected and demanded better is misplaced/misdirected. Always amazes me (after all this time not sure why though) how when someone fails almost immediately that person (and that person's defenders) want to avoid self-examination; almost inevitably the fault lies within.

Agree 100%.

But he also inherits holes in the roster, particularly on both sides of the line. Have to keep that in mind as we judge performance in spring practice and possibly early next year.

I donít mind  o nearly as much as when he leaves that jackass Bart in charge to do the show. He just goes out of his way to make fun of callers. Itís his only schtick and frankly, Iíd like to punch him in the face, so I donít listen to his shows when he is the honcho. But then again, I rarely listen to Bo outside of football season and with hen only when he has Irwin or a national pundit on.

Well, Guv says it is because the only job Norvell was going to leave Memphis for was the Arkansas job, so Om, Tn, FL, or no one else bothered to call.

Agree 100%.

But he also inherits holes in the roster, particularly on both sides of the line. Have to keep that in mind as we judge performance in spring practice and possibly early next year.

I donít mind  o nearly as much as when he leaves that jackass Bart in charge to do the show. He just goes out of his way to make fun of callers. Itís his only schtick and frankly, Iíd like to punch him in the face, so I donít listen to his shows when he is the honcho. But then again, I rarely listen to Bo outside of football season and with hen only when he has Irwin or a national pundit on.
I wish Bo and Bart would move on OUT OF STATE and Mike Irwin and Clay Henry would take over

People getting mad when someone isn't a sunshine pumper on the radio. Bo is spot on, negative or not. We have been, and are still behind in recruiting. Bielema didn't pan out, and left Morris with very little time to patch dozens of holes all over the field.

He wasn't blaming the new coach, just saying its going to be a while til it gets better. I agree.


Bo has to get people to pay attention in the offseason just like every other program. He just spends his on stuff like this. Tune into the other show, and they are talking about drug and alcohol addiction.

I didn't hear the show in question, so no comment on that particular show. As we speak Bo is on a rant about "negativity." Wonder where that came from ;)?

When he starts "being Bort Bielingly", I turn the channel or turn it off. He comes across as an arrogant little troll which is why I rarely listen. When I do it is to see who the guests are. He does have some good guests who I enjoy getting the perspective of on us or CFB or CBB in general.

Listening to Dabo Swinney or another coach from Clemson who coached with Morris there, don't recall his name, or someone like that gives valuable info on what to expect from our new coach.

He has a lot of good guests actually. It's when he starts taking calls or going on his little rants that I usually exercise my right to hit the off button. Like Jim Rome and a lot of other hosts, Bo likes to stir the pot and get irate callers or "me too-ers" to up the ratings.

He plays "devil's advocate". Before Morris was hired, Bo was on his soap box, tub thumping for him as the greatest thing since Lombardi. Now, he is throwing cold water on any expectations and starting the "you can't win in the SEC without all 4-5 star players" and how we have to recruit better players than what we have, yada, yada, yada. I'm paraphrasing, but I get tired of all this blather within days after signing day.

It can't help recruiting for people to parrot his "at the end of the day" cliches about our recruiting or lack thereof. It's not his job to don pom-poms and cheerlead for us, it's also not his job to run the program down. When posters on here take his claims as the gospel, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, creating a kind of narrative that no coach can win here. Not true!

When most programs have back to back years like we had in 2010-11, the talking heads and "ditto-heads" say the sky is falling, it won't last. When another program does that, they say make way for the new dynasty...

The talking heads always lump Alabama and Auburn together like they are equal, when they are not! Look at the won-loss record the last 5-10 years. When was the last time Saban was said to be on the "hot seat?"

Bo is just being Bo, so just keep your preset finger limbered up and ready at all times.

 I don't see that at all... Bo usually does a good job of letting the callers make their points and he steers it back to the middle for perspective. I don't hear him as being "negative" or a "homer" either. I think he usually looks at different sides of every argument and he seems to let the callers make their points and is generally respectful of their opinions. He is a little sarcastic, but its usually pretty funny.
 He gets some great regulars, too. Michael from Stuttgart, Tigerbait, Eddie from Clarksville, Tim from Little Rock... golden radio when those guys call.
 I think we are lucky to have Bo here in Arkansas, he's good enough to go to a bigger market if he wanted to but I think he likes it here.

These guys see him as negative because he is not all " it's all good, the Hogs can win with lesser talent if they will just try harder" etc. Whats funny is they make fun of Rick Schaffer for saying exactly those type of things.

That's difference between us.  The only time I listen is when I happen to be driving, but the nature of the job is I might be in the vehicle for 15-30 minutes   One of those callers comes on and it immediately gets changed. 

I heard a portion of his rant today.  Calling out Twist and Porksoda was amusing.  Defending Bart's rant on Long's firing was not.  Guess I have little patience with anyone who isn't capable of understanding why Long needed to go.

Since we know they are reading this I'd like to see Bart show in a forum like this and defend his views.

This....all a person has to do is go back and listen to the show from Thursday. It was throughout the program....

I think there is a way to go back and listen to old shows - if not, why not?  I went to his webpage for the show - still a pic of CBB not updated since Aug 24 2017.....so maybe you can't go back and listen to old shows.

Sometimes you can confuse a media person laying out possibilities with that person actually wanting something to happen. I know Bo well and I don't think he had issues with Bielema being fired. I also don't think he was tied to Long.

He may have defended both over certain claims but that doesn't mean he tried to save their jobs. Some clown who calls himself Tim From LR tried to claim that I was trying to save Bielema job right down to the end. That's pure BS.

I said after the South Carolina game that he was in job trouble and if he didn't get control of things in a hurry he was gone.

What Tim may have been referring to is a remark I made after the Ole Miss game. I said that with three games left if Arkansas won out, went to a bowl and won that game it would finish the season with a five game winning streak and even though the record would be the same 7-6 as the year before Bielema might be able to sell the idea to Long that winning five straight at the end including a bowl game is a lot better than blowing back to back games at the end of 2016.

That wasn't me saying Bielema should keep his job. It was me explaining a scenario where he might not get fired.

I know what most people of Hogville would want Bo to say every day, and that's something along the lines of firing up his microphone everyday and talking about how Arkansas was going to win 10 games this year and every year no matter what.

Then, when that inevitably did not come true, those same fans would be calling his show and posting on here pissed off as to how "Bo was wrong" and "Why did he get our hopes up?" Typical darned if you do, darned if you don't situation.

What I want is realism. I don't care if the realism is as negative as 0-12 or as positive as 12-0, or (likely) somewhere in the middle. Just give me an honest view.

Don't sugar coat it. Don't dumb it down. Don't prop me up. That insulting to the listener. And honestly, I think Bo does a pretty good job of seeing things objectively and giving his opinion on how things are. Now, he is human and it was obvious he was in love with CBB and JL and was upset they got fired. But I'm willing to bet once season starts and he gets to know Morris that will change.

I'm not one of those fans that needs to be coddled and told how good everything is going to be. That's the problem with a lot of people who don't like his show.

When does it air and what is easiest way to tune in from Dallas?


He did.  He even produced a reality youtube series around Bielema.  The title was Being Bret Bielema.

Good points and that brings to mind this question, why does anybody need to listen to a radio tlak show?  Do you listen to learn something, for entertainment value, to be coddled, embarrassed, angered?

For me, its to be entertained as well as to hear discussion on developing news stories. During spring and fall camp the practice reports are nice to try and keep up with what's going on. During season its nice to hear discussion on the matter. I like other people's takes on the season as enjoy it when the idiots call in. It can be a form of entertainment for sure

2 threads and 6 pages talking about Bo, and yet, he makes fun of Hogville posters. He couldnít buy this much publicity. Ha!

Well, I used to listen to him,  and now I don't.

So I don't know how much this "publicity" is helping him.

I listen for the entertainment. And I get that in 2 forms. 1- Bo does get some really good interview subjects. They bring a perspective you just cant get from homers. And they often talk about broader topics than just the Hogs or SEC. 2- I get a really kick out of some of the callers, and I enjoy how Bo or Mike often smack them down.

Why did the show end?

He's still being Bret Bielema....I've always thought the part of the show after he was fired would be the best.

Ratings would be through the roof as him and Bo get plowed at the East Side Grill all while taping the show.

Bo cut his teeth in the Miami radio market. He learned the business from a guy who knew how to get ratings. His current show is toned way down from what he was doing as a kid barely out of high school but he knows more about how to put together a show and make it work that anybody I've been around.

I hosted a show for about two years and it was a PIA to deal with. I much prefer to come on, say a few things and go away. Bo works at it. He's doing show prep most of the morning. He puts in more than an 8 hour day, I know that.

he works at having the same callers on day after day, letting them ramble.

Honestly, I was hoping CBB would have found a landing spot already and taken Bo with him.....
