With the news today adding to the crootin haul..
« on: March 04, 2019, 08:32:35 pm »

Anybody else find themselves unexpectedly excited about football again? I’ve been on the baseball wagon HARD but it’s tough to shake the feeling that CCM and crew are going to work some magic in the next few years.

Having two brand new qbs with experience will sell some tickets vs what we had last season...I can tell you that.

For sure something to look forward to.

Morris seems to be knowing what he's doing. I like it a lot but still understand we have a long way to go, and 2019 may not be prettier than 5 or 6 wins.

When our competition has DL that are faster than our defensive backs recruiting matters more than coaching.  Great players make great coaches.

All I know is that there are 3 active coaches that have won titles. And 2 of them are in our division. Watching him coach against the best in the nation was embarrassing last season. SEC coaches had a blast his tactics last season. Out coached in EVERY game.

If we can win 4-5 games and show that we doubled the wins next season to go with good recruiting class, 2020 could be lots of fun. We will have Starkel/Jefferson at QB with some very good experienced players heading to South Bend. Win that game, program will be relevant again.

Agreed. We need to win 4/5 games this season. I'm not convinced either way on Chad Morris....but I am convinced that squad last year was middle of the road/low end Sunbelt quality.

This season probably won't be much better, but we need to at least see what his guys he's bringing in can do. Personally I don't think he survives a 2/3 win season....he will be gone if that happens.

I'm happy with the recruiting, I hope it can continue. But for the caliber of competition, his game prep and coaching decisions looked so amateur last season. Some of the assistants are WAY over their heads.

Almost?!?!
There are a number of posters that come on here, usually only on days when the program gets good news (Starkel today), and just keep that needle prick going with the “2-10, can’t coach” mantra.

All they ever prove is that that’s all they can think of to say. They’re like a man who uses 20 curse words a minute due to only having a tiny vocabulary. In short, they’re so stupid they just can’t think of any other angles to take.

It's not easy to disagree with your sentiment. Results are results, but I can't figure out how you're not optimistic. Recruiting is highest level maybe ever and it's absolutely stunning how many Bielema kids he was able to get out of the door in one year.

What game decisions specifically do you have as examples? Specific instances of Les Miles-type clock management? Kicking FGs from the 2 on 3rd down? I’m very interested. I bet there’s lots of YouTube videos you can link to prove your point as well.

Please explain to all of us in detail

1. What specifically he did wrong in his game preperations and what specifically he should have done differently.

2. Specifically what coaching decisions are you speaking of? What were the circumstances and what should he have done differently?

3. Specifically what assistants are WAY over their heads and why do you believe they are  WAY over their heads?

The punt/white flag vs Colorado State is something I'll never forget. The rest of it is a blur that I've purposefully blocked out...I'm sure there are other instances.

BUT, I'll reiterate that the team sucked so badly talent wise that specific coaching decisions like what you listed didn't amount to jack for the most part...my opinion. Bear Bryant in his prime wouldn't have coached that team to a win over North Texas.... complete talent mismatch. Thanks Bielema.

I’ll say this.  The team quit on him after the Ole Miss game.  That was the scariest part to me.  Also, when we had chances to “hammer down”, we did not.  Even when we had nothing to lose we stayed in the right lane.  Even if he thought the roster was completely void of talent he still should have won that Colorado St game.   I hope the incoming Jimmys and Joes give him the edge he needs.

Agreed. 4th and inches at the 50 when the running game had been money all night to me was a no brainer. He should have gone for it. The altitude got to us at the end.

I d]n't realize N. Texas was so loaded with talent. Do they have a lot of players that started that are expected to be drafted? Not trying to be argumentative with anyone, but I am sure that the Hogs will send a lot more players to the NFL that started or contributed last year than N. Texas. Surely ole Bear Bryant could have mustered an upset of such a powerhouse team?

They didn't however they played SMU under Morris the previous three years and knew how to scheme against the Offense. SMU beat UNT the three previous seasons and  54-32 the year before,  it could have been worse but Morris took his foot off the gas in the 4th qtr. Littrell was looking for payback and he got it.

31 to 6 your wrong.

I am sick of losing. Sick of it. I want those kids to win.They deserve it, and WE deserve it. We spend a lot of money to be fans and supporters.

Why we picked this guy is beyond me. So many other good coaches that are proven WINNERS that could recruit just as good. Instead we got a loser from SMU.

He’s literally recruiting better than anyone has recruited at Arkansas. After winning 2 games. You can knock him all you want for what transpired on the field last year, but there aren’t “so many” other proven winners out there that could do what he’s doing at Arkansas when it comes to recruiting.

But yeah, noted. You think he can’t coach.

Arkansas is always going to struggle to get above middle of the pack status in the SEC. Some of that is beyond  Morris or any coach's control. I just hope he can do his share. Time will tell.

This ain’t on CCM. We only had 9 olineman last year. Our best CB ran a 4.61 and a 4.69 at the combine. We had zero SEC level qb’s. Zero SEC receivers. One SEC linebacker. No free safety. Our best RB came in from juco. And we’ve processed 18 players that that were sun belt type talent since the beginning of the 2018 season.

This was more than an overhaul job. It was a burnt to the ashes and build a new foundation type of challenge.

And against the best coach in college football history, with the worst talent level in the SEC ( If not the power 5, but that's clearly up for debate ), he put up the most points this season outside of the national champions.

Give the guy more than a year before you claim to have all the answers about what he's capable of. Idiot.

What you said makes sense, I can see how the factors you mentioned, and combine that with the Hogs coming into the game reeling from the Colorado St. game where the Hogs had such a terrible meltdown blowing a big lead in the 2nd half. Set up all the ingredients for a perfect storm, and N. Texas blew us away. Wasn't that N. Texas was more talented on paper, but they sure outplayed the Hogs in every facet of the game that day.

True, but he has added enough players to win 4/5 games and that will be enough for many. I even think he can get to a bowl this season if a few bounces go the right way.
