Title: RD saying more good news today.
Post by: RandomPigInLousiana on January 10, 2020, 04:16:07 pm
Richard Davenport is saying more good news today. But we won’t be as excited as the Jacobs commitment.

If it’s a recruit committing, that's a pretty crappy introduction...

“Good news guys.. we’ve got a commitment coming today. He’s good...not THAT good. But good.”

Regardless of what it is... that's not a great way to tee up anything. Unless it doesn't have to do with a player.

How so?  If starkel changed his mind I would sure be less excited than say a commitment from any recruit with an offer. And part of the message was good news but not as good as Jacob's.

Yes.  While a lock down corner is great, this one has 2 yrs to play months of knee rehab.

St John is a much needed o line with 5 to play 4.     That's huge

When she ain't home

My daughter came walking through the living room the other day and I was watching a game on tv and talking to myself.  She looked at me all worried and said, "dad why are you talking to yourself?"  I told her "your mother isn't home and I'm not used to the quiet."

If not Franks then who do you want??  Remember who we are and where we have been.  We are beggars here in search of a GT QB with one year to play one.  We are not a LSU or OU in search of a GT QB.
Title: Re: RD saying more good news today.
Post by: tophawg19 on January 11, 2020, 09:31:00 am
Franks would be a decent 1 year stop gap guy. and if they could get him to potential would be big. Hornsby is the big target but will need a year in the weight room and under a strong qb coach to refine talent

I never even reported Tutt was in the transfer portal. The kid was a senior here last season so he is finished here. With his knees I hope he stops playing at any level.

It would be a real kicker!

We have two real kickers. One of them was plinking 55 yarders last week with James Wilhoit. He would have probably been punting for Vandy last year if his dad wasn’t such a Razorbacks fan. Another one was 33-41 on FG attempts at UTSA in two years and has two years left.

Like a coach (not Arkansas) told my son on an in-home visit - “My job every year is to find someone better than you.”

It was a play on words as there is a PWO enrolling at mid-term that is a kicker. As you said, the coach’s job is to always find your replacement. I have no idea who will be the kickers this year, competition will decide that.

I didn’t know about the PWO enrolling at mid-term but that would interest me!

I thought you were making a presumption based on PWO. As everyone knows, almost every kicker has to walk on if he wants to play for a P5 school. Ironically, it’s much easier for a kicker to get a scholarship out of high school to a G5 or FCS school.  It’s a system that has developed in the 21st century and that’s just the way it is. I looked recently at a bunch of NFL kickers. Most started as PWOs, like Dan Bailey.

My comment was directed at your reference to a “real kicker”.  Tanner Burns recruited some really good placekickers at Arkansas.  That includes Cole Hedlund, Connor Limpert and Blake Mazza. Tanner recruited Matthew to replace Connor. He’s traveled with the team for two years backing up all three kicking positions.  Barry Lunney talked a couple of times last year about what Matthew brings to the team. James Wilhoit said he was the best combo kicker in Tennessee’s 2018 class. Matthew has been working awfully hard for two years to earn the starting spot.  He definitely is a “real kicker” with SEC caliber skills.

Ease up Dad, again “real kicker” had nothing to do with the ability of our current kickers, just a play on words over the potential “good” news. Heck, he may not be enrolling, I figure it would be announced by now.

Not sure what you mean by “ease up”.  The play-on-words seems a stretch to me. No big deal.  Don’t want the folks here to think we don’t already have two good placekickers on campus already.

As I understand it, Bailey walked on and relied on an academic scholarship at Arkansas. He lost the kicking job and his academic scholarship, left school for a year, and walked on at Oklahoma State, where he later earned a scholarship.

Having endured successive dismal debacles under John L. Smith, Brett Bielema and Chad Morris have our program "seeing stars" in a most distressing and disheartening manner.  My hopes are now pinned to the "star-MAKING" talents of SP and his staff.  I'm fervently hoping that they are fully dedicated to "reaching for the stars".
