Hogs Last Seven 10 Win Seasons
« on: August 09, 2018, 03:34:27 pm »

I made a comparison on another thread between aTm 95 to 12 seasons and started thinking it might be fun to look at some of the Hogs great seasons over the last 40 years.

Give us something else to debate while we wait for more actual football news anyway.

Here goes, which season was better?

1. 2011 Hogs 11-2 (.846)
2T. 1979 Hogs 10-2 (.833)
2T. 1985 Hogs 10-2 (.833)
2T. 1988 Hogs 10-2 (.833)
2T. 1989 Hogs 10-2 (.833)
6. 2010 Hogs 10-3 (.769)
7. 2006 Hogs 10-4 (.714)

Combined record of opponents:
1. 2010: 93-64 (.592)
2. 2006: 97-68 (.588)* (Couldn't find a record for SEMSU that season)
3. 1979: 74-59-4 (.540)
4. 2011: 87-77 (.530)
5. 1989: 71-66 (.518)
6. 1985: 68-69 (.496)
7. 1988: 67-69 (.493)

Record against Top 25 opponents:
1. 1985: 1-0 (1.000)
2. 2011: 4-2 (0.667)
3T. 2010: 3-3 (0.500)
3T. 1979: 2-2 (0.500)
3T. 1989: 1-1 (0.500)
6. 2006: 2-3 (0.400)
7. 1988: 0-2 (0.000)

Record against teams with at least 8 wins:
1. 1989: 4-1 (.800)
2. 2011: 3-2 (.600)
3. 2010: 4-3 (.571)
4T. 1979: 2-2 (.500)
4T. 1985: 2-2 (.500)
6. 2006: 3-4 (.429)
7. 1988: 1-2 (.333)

Record against teams with a winning record:
1. 1989: 4-1 (.800)
2. 2011: 5-2 (.714)
3T. 1979: 4-2 (.667)
3T. 1985: 4-2 (.667)
5. 1988: 3-2 (.600)
6. 2010: 4-3 (.571)
7. 2006: 3-4 (.429)

Bowl game:
1979: Lost to #2 Alabama (they ended up NC after that game)
1985: Beat unranked Arizona St.
1988: Lost to #9 UCLA
1989: Lost to #8 Tennessee
2006: Lost to #6 Wisconsin
2010: Lost to #6 Ohio St.
2011: Beat #10 Kansas St.

The 2011 team was the third best team in the nation that year. Alabama and LSU were just that much better than everyone else that year. That team was also in the heyday of SEC dominance.

2010 team was nearly just as good.

2006 team might have the most talent on the list, but it depends on whether or not Nutt is coaching that team before I say they're better than '10 and '11.

2010 team was the best of this group and win over LSU the best win of the 3 SEC era teams because of what it meant. 

1979 season next IMO.  Beat #2 Texas.  Only loss to #6 Houston.  Overmatched vs Bama but the start of the Sugar Bowl was fun. 

2011 > 2006 because of the bowl win.  Close though.  2006 season with our RBs and win at #2 Auburn was great.  Would put ahead of 2011 if we had won just one of the last 3. 

1988 - nearly won in the Orange Bowl when Miami didn't lose to anyone for years in the Orange Bowl.  Bowl performance by offense was record setting awful

1989 - horrible loss to Texas

1985 - bad losses to unranked Texas and A&M.  Played one ranked team in #11 Baylor.

The best Razorback teams in my lifetime (1971 - now) were...
1. ...the 1977 squad. They should have beaten Texas,  ::hornsdown::, but I can't count that against them since the Horns and Earl Campbell were a truly great team. Plus, they beat #2 OU in the Orange Bowl. 
2. 2011 comes in second for me, because they won every game they should have won, to include beating K-State in the Cotton Bowl. No one can blame them for losing on the road to both #1 Alabama and #2 LSU.
3. The 1988 team won every game they should have won as well, although they might have had a better chance to beat UCLA in the Cotton Bowl if Wayne Martin and Freddie Childress hadn't been suspended.
4. 2010 could have easily been higher if they had beaten Alabama and Ohio St in the Sugar Bowl, two games they absolutely should have won.
5. 1989 could have been even better than it was, because that team should have beaten an average Texas, as well as Tennessee in the Cotton Bowl. Had they won both, they would have won the "89 national championship when Notre Dame beat Colorado in the Orange Bowl that night.
6. 1979 is another team than dropped the ball and cost the Hogs a national title. They should have beaten Houston in Fayetteville instead of losing 10-13, and then being forced to go to the Sugar Bowl and get manhandled by the Tide. They would have beaten Nebraska in the Cotton Bowl, and forced Bama to share the "79 title.

I know that there has to be a line drawn somewhere, but 10 wins was harder when there were only 11 regular season games. The 1998 season has to be on the list of great seasons. We were 9-3, opened up 8-0 and came within a hair's breadth of beating the eventual national champion, then probably having a much better mindset the next week against MSU (and probably being able to take our kicker to that game) and having a rematch with Tennessee for a trip to the BCS Championship game. I know it wasn't 10 wins but it has to be considered a better season than some on the list.

I know there are probably some other 9 win seasons worth considering.

It was definitely a fantastic season and I think one of the things that made it so enjoyable was the fact that almost nobody (definitely not me anyway) had any idea that type of season was coming. I threw a few things around my room in the guest quarters at Ft. McClellen when Clint fumbled that ball. When I came to my senses I was worried I would catch an Article 15 for that, but I got everything put back together and no one ended up noticing...

1998 was the first season where it felt we were finally SEC competitive.  Our wins didn't come against great teams.  But the season itself was great from the standpoint the program really needed it.  Before this, the upset over Tenn in 92, win at Tuscaloosa with JJ's catch and win over Bowden's AU in WMS essentially wrapping up Atlanta for us was our highlights over the first 6 SEC seasons.

That 9-2-1 team in '82 should have been 10-2. They were robbed in Texas Stadium against SMU. I was there.

Pass interference my a$$…

That team also lost a game at Baylor in Wacko. 35mph winds, gusts into the 50s, and POURING down rain pretty much made personal survival paramount, and all football players equal. They followed that heartbreaking loss by layin' a beatdown on T&M the following week. The Arkansas 17, SMU 10, Referees 7 game took the wind out of the Hogs sails that year and they laid a big egg in Austin the following week.

The only consolation for me that year was that SMU elected to kick the extra point late in the game and settle for the tie. Their 11-0-1 record cost them the Natty. Had they gone for two and converted, they'd have won the NC for sure. They had manhandled the same Texas team that we lost to, in Austin.

That was such a letdown season for me. A 7-0 start fizzled to a 2-2-1 finish...Whoa Hogs.

Lud42, cool topic and nice research. I remember all these well.

Several interesting things turn up when you go down the list. One thing—which has been discussed before—the quality of the competition in the 88 and 89 years. (That hurt us when the bowls came around.) We played just 2 top 25 teams each year and won 1. However, in 89 we were 4-1 against teams with 8+ wins. Not bad. I was at that Cotton Bowl…a painful loss in a game we clearly should have won. Too may turnovers in the red zone.

I almost think of Petrino's 10 and 11 teams as one entity that spanned 2 seasons. Very solid with some great wins. But our bowl woes continued…our super WRs dropped many Mallett passes (he would have been MVP) as we lost to criminal Ohio State. What a skin on the wall that would have been. The 11 team had some of the greatest moments I remember in Razorback Stadium. And to close out the season, I got to see a Cotton Bowl win for a change.

The weird 2006 season is win a class by itself…the great start with the terrible end. Nutt just got so distracted, he couldn't hold things together. The highs were so high with DMac/Felix/Hillis running wild, and the lows so low with the 3 loss (LSU/Flo/Wisc) finish.

2010 was probably tops on the list for me. Definitely a better team than 2011, bc we were never blown out, and had chances to win every game. Not to mention every team we lost to was, at one point during the season, ranked #1.

2010 and 2011 were the best back to back years in Ark history.  We beat 7 top 25 teams over those 2 years.  The SEC back then from top to bottom would destroy the league today, and anything in 2006 or “back in the day in the SWC”
