Wow.

All these people that want to run off to the Big 12 or whatever in this thread.  They finally beat it out of you guys, did they?

Sheesh.

Not me.  I've been fighting with the Big 12 movers for what seems like an eternity!  To me it feels like running from your problems.  They don't go away.  You either figure out a way to improve recruiting and don't rely on Arkansas churning out elite talent in sufficient numbers, which only happens about once a decade, or you face the same issues. 

To me it's like saying..."Well, we can't beat the teams in the SEC, so let's go try to beat the teams in the Big 12.  Who cares if/when we face an SEC team in a bowl game or playoff game when it matters the most, let's go see if we can beat Texas Tech and TCU more than 50% of the time, like we've managed in recent years." 

I get it...the SEC brass sees us as an outsider, and not an "original."  Who says that wouldn't happen in the Big 12?  We haven't been there either, and we aren't an "original."  Imagine the uproar the first time TX and OU get calls like Fla, LSU, and Bama do when we play them.  Same story....different surroundings.

Itís not Top 30. It was 19 in an article published by AP on Jan.14, 2018. It was about 13 when we entered the SEC. But those numbers arenít the point. All they do is offer proof that Arkansas has great football tradition.

There are at least eight SEC programs that historically have been considered ďeliteĒ.  There is a definite hierarchy in those programs. They arenít equal - not 50 years ago and not now. In approximate order they are Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Auburn, Arkansas and Texas A&M. Ole Miss might make a claim, but itís been almost 60 years since Ole Miss has really been considered a power.

I personally wasnít down in the mouth about Arkansas during Nuttís tenure and certainly not during Petrinoís. Anyone who expected Arkansas to regularly win SEC championships in 1992 wasnít realistic. Anyone who expects Chad Morris to regularly win SEC championships isnít realistic. But anyone who thinks Arkansas has suddenly become a doormat has no understanding of why Arkansas has been a great football program for generations. Arkansas has competed for SEC championships and will again. We are generally going to field good football teams.

I have no desire to go backwards. There is going to be no switch to the Big 12. Realignment/restructuring might occur for playoff/competitive purposes, but thatís a different question.

Judge the Razorbacks by the quality of the team on the field, not by whether we beat elite SEC teams on a regular basis. Enjoy every game and every season because you are proud to be an Arkansan and a Razorback. To hell with everyone else.

This. We have been the gnat in the ear of better teams before. We can be that again.

If that's the case you may not wanna check out 247's team rankings right now. Their average may not be overly impressive, but they're still sitting at #1.

That's more a product of quantity vs quality

I dunno what I've done that makes me a dog. I haven't, say, had a law license suspended by a state Supreme Court or anything so egregious. Takes a dog to have that happen, I'd think. Just a hypothetical example.

Anyway. Life's too short for grudges and feuds, so can we get back to the thread and topic at hand rather than you derailing the thread by chirping at me out of the blue?

That's the "Retreat" that is blown at 5 p.m. every day when the cannon is fired and flag is brought down, recovered and folded.

It is, but it originated during the days when commanders communicated with troops via bugle call.  It's what was heard when a general said "Sound the retreat". I learn something new every day.

I couldn't care less "who's running" those guys or if you're all the same person.  You admit some are.  But it is fun poking y'all while you troll the board.  From Lanny's perspective I suppose it's good for business.  For all we know you're a shill to drive offseason hits.  From the perspective of those of us who like to discuss football, it's annoying, but that is your goal to begin with.  So carry on.  I'll poke you when you poke me when I feel like it.

I get the attraction of the SEC. More money. Stronger conference. Better attendance. Better TV exposure. But damn I hate this snotty league. Twenty five years in the SEC and Arkansas is still treated like an outsider. It's not just Finebaum. Fans of other teams dismiss Arkansas. The media does it. The league office does it.

I wish the Big 12 would get its act together. Tell Texas they are going to have to be a part of the league, not run it. Drop the Longhorn Network and convert it to the Big 12 Network. Arkansas would be a better fit there. It would be easier for fans to travel. Plus, with the exception of the Longhorns, most of those places were fairly friendly toward our fans in the SWC days.

Maybe it's just me but from the first year in 92  I've always had the impression that the SEC looks down its nose at Arkansas.

The condescension is definitely palpable.  However, being old school, I believe the best way to be respected, is to dig in and do something respectable.  Slinking off to the Big whatever would not serve us well at all.

We own so much real estate in your brain. I'd be willing to bet that none of us are the same person. Also, we don't troll the board - for the most part, we bring sound and valid points to the discussion/argument. It's just that most of you snowflakes are such small-minded homers that you get upset and offended and label us as trolls.

Yeah, because they have all the ingredients to be relevant. We are going to try to hang our hats on taking players out of their state. That is a disadvantage. Recruiting is the lifeblood of any program. Those that can recruit will get respect. If you can get recruits all it takes is the right coach.
TN has no instate talent and was relevant for years by taking talent from surrounding states. They however have not had a good coach since Elmer Fudd their current AD.

Welcome aboard the pirate ship, Mike! Glad to have you.

So what you are saying s if we are not winning where we are just go down to another conference where we an win. I say stay where we are and get a coach
who can win. Not saying our present coach can't win, but don't say we can't get a coach that can win. We can get anyone out there   if the price is right.
And I don't care what anyone says whether or not we win is on the coaches shoulders. Look what Alabama did after Bear Bryant left until they hired Saban & what they have done since.
