And nothing has changed.
I offered proof.
You still have nothing but hearsay.

I won't even argue that you can nit-pick and question an actual poll, but still to this point, you have nothing to offer.

I have something, you have nothing.

Just say that you speak for yourself, and I'll drop it.
You would have your dissertation rejected if that survey/poll was used.

I'll say that the donors and ticket holders that I've talked with disliked Nutt.  I'd like to guess that I've talked with more than 600 in different venues but I'm not sure about that.

I was never a full fledged darksider and I never paid to fly a banner because I decided to just ignore the coach and cheer for the team..... just like I'll do if Morris or any other coach fails.  BUT I knew plenty of people who were.

Nutt's actions regarding Mustain pushed a ton of people from luke warm to total disapproval.

i know one thing those Darksider meet ups were lit, and packed.   You don't pay to fly a fire HDN banner for a HOF guy and a guy the fan base thinks is doing a good job.

search DeviceHigh on this board and see for yourself, people became e-famous due to Hooten's antics and the fans response to them.
oh btw there were die hard fans of HDN to be sure, they were called Nutthuggers some still alive today.
Here we go again, speaking for the 'fan base' again.

Poll? Proof?

Everyone needs to chill and put a disclaimer like that on their ramblings here and stop claiming to speak for anyone else, or expect to be challenged for scientific proof.

I know someone who I view as 'moderate'.
Went to games, cheered the Hogs, gives some money, etc. Pretty good sample of a typical Hog fan, I would think.
I remember talking about this subject back then.
We both kinda thought the whole thing was ridiculous.
But his opinion was that 'hey, it's been ten years, we've probably seen everything we're gonna see. I wouldn't mind a change.'
I suspect (my opinion) there were a lot of 'sensible' fans like that. Do I want to fly a plane? Heck no. Picket? Of course not.
Do I care if Nutt remains the coach? Not really.
Do I mind if someone else is the coach? Nah, it's been long enough, let's see what someone else can do with it.
The coaching equivalent of the 'Seven-Year Itch', basically. Happens a lot in this business, actually.

Keep deflecting towards off the field issues. These are the facts, whether you like it or not.
I can't and won't deny his success here.  I even stated that his win over eventual national champ LSU was amazing.

My only contention was that the dislike for him is not limited to Hogville.

Hogville is a great source of info and it's a place to converse but it doesn't have the power to fire coaches.  It was the donors and ticket buyers who fired Nutt not Hogville.

Beyond that - I have no problem with Nutt going into the arkansas sports hall of fame.  It's not tied to the Razorbacks or the University of Arkansas..... so no problem.  Nutt did enough on the field to be recognized by his hometown hall of fame.

he was forced out kicking and screaming, petty and petulant to the bitter end. And this took years mind you.

there was one heart beat alright and it was to get rid of him by any means necessary. We didn't let go of that rope that rope let go of us...

I wish Mike Irwin would come on here and post what he said about the end of the Houston Nutt era on Bo's show.  It was fascinating.

It is what it is.  His record was good enough.  There are coaches who achieved less than HDN that are in other States' HOF.  Whether you like him or not, he won some interesting games and brought in some pretty good players.  He just couldn't win an SEC title with any of them and his final year(s) were tarnished a bit for off-the-field antics.  I was on his side for a bulk of his tenure at Arkansas but grew tired of the ego and lack of a broader perspective to take the program to newer heights. 

I say give him his trophy or medal or whatever and be done with it.  Nothing to see here.

You can nitpick any coach in Arkansas history and downplay them, even Frank. Doesn't erase the accomplishments that they had at the school.
-Bad losses happen. He lost at home to Vandy. Saban lost at home to UAB and Monroe once.
-He ran off a qb, but brought in the best player in Arkansas history and only Arkansas player to be a heisman finalist.
-Who didn't get blown out by USC at that time?
-DMAC only had one carry that game. Dearrius Howard was the starter at the time
-Every hog coach doesn't have the best bowl record. Broyles was 4-6. Holtz was 3-2-1, Hatfield was 1-5.

Downplay Nutt all you want, but he deserves to be in the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame

Some of us think you are upplaying him instead of us downplaying him.  No he does not deserve to be in the HOF.

It's just funny that you always undermine people that don't donate--whether it's because they can't afford to or simply choose not to, yet you spend your time here on this free message board instead of hanging out with the other elites on the pay sites.

Amen.

Oh, they can like them, but their opinion doesn't actually count for anything... ;)

I imagine this checker guy being like Phillip Seymour Hoffman on boogie nights toward dirk diggler when he is around all these grand NEZ folks that slobbers over all the time.

This site clammers respect and not attacking people yet they allow this guy to belittle and judge Razorback fandom merit based off going to games. Yet he is on this free website making these asinine comments.

John Lennon and "Don't Let Me Down" is a several levels over this subject narrative of HDN. It's like killing an ant with a sledge hammer.
