Well, that's interesting.  I remember regretting that CBB didn't offer him a scholarship and then watching him play well as a true freshman for MSU.  Surprisingly, that was his best year, so I wonder if he's been dealing with injuries?

In the 2014 the brilliant CBB offered and brought in Juan Day, and passed on this kid? Juan Day ended up transferring to Stephen F Austin where he scorched opponents for 115 yards in 2017.

Well, Day has had multiple ACL surgeries. As someone who has had multiple ACL surgreries as well I understand how people aren't the same athlete after.

But, I agree London is a good player

I realize he had injures. We RECRUITED him injured, he had 300 rushing yards as a Senior in High School. If you are a Head Coach at an SEC school, you don’t take an injured kid as the ONLY running back in the class. Shows how incompetent BB was and why he is no longer employed. Stay classy.

I remember the young man while he was here in central Arkansas. While I like to watch practically all of college football, including the BIG 10, I had forgotten this young man had gone on to MSU. I wish him the best next year. Sounds as if he certainly deserves a chance to shine for at least one season.

Knile was also 1 of 4 running backs signed in the 2009 recruiting class, not the only one.

CB left us with 2 of the top 5 running backs in the country and TJ who in my opinion is way underrated. If you want to complain about CB fine but if Running back is your problem you don't have one!

2 of the top 5 running backs in the country? Please name them and show me where they are rated that high by someone other than you.

CBB actually recruited running backs very well. I have been critical but on this aspect he did well.

Committed to your boy, booby as I recall. I guess you wanted CBB to come in and pull the offer.

IIRC, we offered before he was injured and he accepted before he was injured, so CBB just never reneged.  I'm not certain that's right, but it's how I remember it happening.

The native of Little Rock, Ark., who transferred to St. Thomas Aquinas in 10th grade, knows there are countless cities where help is needed.

April 10, 2012 your boy Bobby was fired. January 7, 2013 he committed to Arkansas. Don’t you hate it when facts get in the way of a good argument?

I knew it was in there, because I'd looked for it too.

Not sure who we'll take, but it's always nice to have options.

I would love to see a couple of O-linemen and 1 sure enough, hand on the turf clog up the middle defensive tackle.  I want a Guy who owns the middle in a down lineman.  I want teams to know, don't try up the gut, its like running into a STEEL WALL 4 INCHES THICK.

Instead of a transfer, I would have rather had a true freshman come in and give 3 - 4 solid years.  I think we missed out on Charles Strong.

Jackass.  Take a swip at a kid then get your feelings hurt when someone calls you out.  What a loser

My feelings aren’t hurt. My point was that I know he was injured while here, he was injured when we recruited him, you don’t bring in one running back in a recruiting class, especially one who was so injured he played in 3 games his Senior year. Meanwhile we didn’t offer a higher rated, native Arkansas kid who proved he was better in high school and has proven to be better while at MSU.

Agreed. And I think Billy Ferrell, with an outstanding strength and conditioning program, will play a big part in granting your wish--hopefully soon; almost certainly in time.

I forgot about Juan Day. I remember he was injured but took him cause Tenpenny had got away that year or prior one. I thought he was going to be a beast. Also I don't think London was\would have been a solid thing to choose hogs. How many Arkansas ties kids end up here? Think Pool is first one I can think of in my time on hogville.
