Nutt was not a solid coach.  Revisionist history to say so.  A lot of time has passed and some of us just don't have it in us anymore to remind the rest of the details of Nutt era ON THE FIELD.  Should have been encouraged to leave at the least after 2003.

Will there be changes based off the suggestions presented by the commission? Almost certainly. Will those changes be enough to alter the sport in any easily identifiable way? We’ll have to wait and see.

The commission’s suggestions aren’t going to be rubber stamped, but Emmert has stated multiple times in recent months that he had to convince every member that this wouldn’t just be window dressing.

“Just to be blunt about it, you don’t waste Condoleezza Rice’s time if you’re not serious about it,” Emmert said last Friday.

The NCAA would need the help of the NBA and its players association to collectively bargain any change to the one and done rule. Any significant overhaul to the current structure of grassroots basketball leagues or apparel companies and their relationships with NCAA institutions would also require significant assistance.

If nothing else, the commission’s suggestions seem likely to give us at least a few tweaks to a current system that most agree is in desperate need of tweaking. It also could serve as a jumping off point for a broader dialogue that results in more sweeping changes for a sport that finds itself in a position where sweeping change seems to be its only option.

This is a product of someone simply winning a race.  The Daytona 500.  Outside of that, no real success.

Too much “Launch Angle”, not enough “Charlie Lau”.

It’s become an issue sweeping baseball.  Crunch time hitters choke up on the bat, shorten their swing, hit down thru the ball, and put the ball in play.  Preferably driving it right up the pitcher’s eye hole.

The fascination with homeruns and “Launch Angle” is killing the clutch hit.
I think this is right, too much focus on trying to get lift on the ball so it can carry out of the park. Pitchers of all levels, but especially from college down hate to pitch inside, to me if your approach isn't middle to oppo you are doing it wrong, especially with runners in position, but also in every AB. I just don't see enough of it.

The hire from Greenwood was Greenwood's co-defensive coordinator.  Crosby Tuck has been hired to be VB's offensive coordinator.

My mistake.  I read his post wrong.  Yes, Chik is the DC at Greenwood

The home series with the Metropitans and Pirates are going to tell us something. Really need to come out better than .500 for the two series.

there is a pretty cool bar and restaurant area down along the river. Can't remember the name of it.  Not as  nice as Nashville but not bad.  If you like checking out  college campuses Louisville is right across the street.
Whiskey Row....lots of good places down there

I don't blame the young man at all for looking around. He will only go through the recruiting process once in his life, so he might as well make the most of it.

That said, I sure hope he picks Arkansas in the end. I'd love to see all these in-state kids turn the program around. It'd be a huge story on the national front, too. If the Razorbacks are ever truly "in the hunt" again when mid-November rolls around, it's going to be a huge story.

The electricity in these hills and hollers...I can still remember...Man, would I ever love to see it again!


I hate to be a negative voice here, but I don't see Wilkins coming to Arkansas. All signs point to him going to OU. Instead of showering him with all the love we would spend our time better on a guy like Thomas, who is far more likely to call the Hogs -- and is a higher rated OL. He's a huge priority, yet nobody talks about him. It's time he gets some attention. Would love to have both, but some folks just don't want to be Hogs, and that's ok.
