In the current landscape? No

Honestly, what we need is for Saban to retire and Malzahn and Orgeron to be fired all in the same offseason.

If he can recruit he can win.

To take this one farther, he'll have to get several elite players (at the same time). For example, a team will need 4-5 All-SEC guys on each side of the ball. Additionally, a couple All-Americans and a strong Heisman candidate. Gotta have the home-run hitter.

Think big, like USC's backfield—Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, Lendale White. Or in our case, McFadden, Mallett, and with a superstar on defense. Or, if you're not mixing time periods, Mallett with Knile Davis (those guys = 30+ TD passes, 1300+ yards rushing). And offense like that can win you the SEC crown.

I can't imagine us fielding a team like Alabama, with 8-10 guys per side who'll play in the NFL. But we have shown we can get close on occasion with some big-time playmakers. So look how simple that recipe is!

You probably should have given us a time period of say, 3 or 4 years.  Because I don't think Morris will be at Arkansas longer than 4 years, 5 years at the most.  Clemson or A&M will be beckoning, or one of the Big 12 teams based in Texas.

Morris is a coaching nomad.

I don’t think we could win the Big 12 in the near future.

No, I don’t see us winning the SEC under Morris. Saban probably still has several years left, Florida is about to get rolling again, Georgia is turning into an absolute monster, I think Miss State’s head coach may be pretty good, LSU is good even with a bad coach, as is Auburn, we haven’t beat A&M in a long time, Ole Miss is out-recruiting us, as is Tennessee and S.C. We’ve never won one, and I don’t see that changing.

So no, we won’t win an SEC title under Morris. However, I think we’re going to be far more competitive, but no title. It may be like the Petrino years, which is pretty good, so the next 5 years may still be really fun.

Morris or any other coach will not just move us to the top of the SEC.  We will need 3 or 4 typical powerhouses to fail and us to get lucky with the other 2 or 3 powerhouses.  That sort of happened in 2016 and 2017.  There was just 2 or 3 powerhouse teams in the SEC both years.  Unfortunately, we were among the weaklings both years.  This past year, Aubbie was positioned to take out BAMA and GEO.  But just one major injury and they were through.  Overall answer to thread.  No Morris won't win an SECC for us.

Only 6 teams have won SEC titles since Arkansas joined in 1991 - Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, LSU and Auburn. The same six won every title except 1 between 1963 and 1990. Kentucky won in 1976. So in 55 years, six teams have divided 54 titles.

Given that history, I’m not “confident” Arkansas will win an SEC title in my lifetime - but - we’ve won four division titles in 26 years and came very close in 2006, so it can be done.

I am confident of one thing - Arkansas is going to be a good football team under Chad Morris.

If we can get 2-3 on each side of the ball the caliber of the one we signed on Friday and develop the other players available to us....yes, we could win the SEC

This won't happen overnight, I'm guessing year 3 or 4

That and even if by some chance he wins the west, then he’s almost definitely facing Smart and UGA, which is fast becoming Saban/Bama2.0.  Both programs always having better and more talent.

But I have no delusions of SECC’s in this landscape. It’s nuts to even be thinking about it given how bad the program has been and that CM has never even coached a game.  I just want us to be relevant again.  Actually have a chance to win any game we play.  To be taken seriously by the big boys of the conference.  Like 2010 and 2011.  I’m hopeful CM can do that.  And I’d be thrilled if he did.

It's way to early to answer that.  I think he could bring about some much needed enthusiasm for the program, especially with an 8 win upcoming season.

Interesting or not, my history is not what you should be concerned about if Morris is a good as we hear he is.  And, that's not negative in any way.  He'll win 8 or 9 games in back to back years by year 3 and 4, with a bowl win maybe even 10.  No championships but there will be interest from other programs, noting the turn-around he has effected here, and if it's a step up he'll bolt.

What you should check is HIS history.  In approximately 25 years as a head coach he has never been anywhere longer than FOUR YEARS.  Just citing facts, which ties to my initial post here.

You can call it negative if you wish but I certainly do not think Arkansas is a destination job for Morris.  Of course a lot here will think so.

I realize that anything posted that isn't what YOU want to read is negative.  Just goes with the territory.  I won't say I told you so, but just remember this post in December of 2021.

It will be so much fun watching this team play with coaches that know what they are doing and are dedicated to doing it.. Thank God the clown is gone. Look back at our games and you'll see kids hanging with the other team for a few quarters or beating the hell out of the other team for a few quarters. Then the coaching and training caught up to them and they were beat. I am as sure as I can be that this team will shock two or three teams and sneak in with 8 wins. There for, thank you..

I think the possibility definitely improved with his hire.  And the state of AR is primed for a "rare" class of HS players.  He has to get them.

I think the super bowl showed if you can score you can win =)
