Seems like every year they pick us to finish last.. and just about every year we pretty much prove them right.  We changed ADs, Coaches, and philosophies this year.. why would anybody pick us any different than last place?  To make it worse, we are now playing SEC games in Little Rock which only hurts our brand more.  Only homers in Arkansas think we will not be in last place this year.. I will say though that we may beat out Ole Piss but only because the NCAA is ripping that program apart.

Like I said, I think it is a knee-jerk reaction without really having an opportunity to evaluate the program up close to determine what we really do have on the roster. This isn't about taking a "homer viewpoint", this is about being more realistic. Throw out the last 5 years except when it comes to the talent remaining on the team (most of whom played in a system at least similar to that of Morris before coming here) and the addition of an offensive innovator and a skilled and experienced DC.

How many of these prognosticators have actually been on campus watching our team as they learn new systems? How many have witnessed team speed up close and personal in our work outs? I would guess none to maybe 1 or 2 at the most.

I understand fans having diminished hopes because of what we have been through in the recent past. But these national guys who are supposed to know what they are talking about? I give them less credence because most haven't been here to see what Morris and Chavis are doing aside from watching an extremely vanilla spring game on t.v., if even that.

It doesn't matter that some of Petrino's recruits never played for him. They were still HIS recruits. Regardless of where they were drafted, there were indeed more than a hand full of Petrino recruits drafted by NFL teams during Bielema's tenure.

Good posts Guv.........I have knows for many, many years that some sort of the spread is best at AR.......when Long fired Petrino he set this program back many years as we have seen......when we hired a coach that said he was going to run the ball down Al throat.....well we got what we got.

I agree with you about Kelley.

If the Hogs don't learn how to win on the road they are always going to have issues. Granted they prolly will host a regional but after that?

Lol, you're dumb. We just beat FL in Alabama. Also, will be at Baum from now til Omaha if we keep winning.

We will do better than last.

I see only 4 losses (losses to Alabama, Auburn, LSU, and Texas A&M).

I am not convinced we will lose to Mississippi State.

Yes, LT. You get it. But make no mistake, I'm far from being in your "vise". You and I aren't that far apart. Every word I post in this thread has meaning. Start from the beginning.

Just messing wit chas.

And as the quoted coach said, "the offense sometimes disappears", as it did vs. LSU and Georgia and the reason they lost to UCF was giving up 3 T/O's. It was the offense that failed, not the defense.

Malzahn and Kevin Steele would probably disagree that they had the best front seven in college ball last year.

They saw firsthand in week 2 last season what was the best when Auburn's QB got sacked 11 times in that week 2 game.

Best career ever. Over $200 mil in the bank, made some All-Star appearances, never wasvin controversy, and never had the pressure of a superstar. Oh yea, he’ll also be a HOF’er one day. Not bad.

We have to replace the turf, what do you suggest we play on?

Play them in Little Rock?  Doesn't make any sense to continue putting any money into this stadium if we are just going to continue to take games away.  The fans 'Answered the call', the politicians and administration told the fans to pound sand.  Just stating the obvious.
