I think it means Cult of Gus.

Maybe that's it. I guessed Child of Gus (as a backhanded nickname for Morris) in the past but that doesn't always make sense so I scratched that one.

My next best guess was that maybe it meant Cousin of Guvhog...

Well the internet is your friend so doing a little research I discovered CoG COULD mean the following:

Communion of Gurhal
Congress of Gamers
Cluster of Orthologous Groups

or my favorite Club Omnisports Gargenville (French sports club)

Take your pick.

I work from home and don't have a "safe search" protocol but any NSFW site is automatically blocked.  That didn't happen when I searched for "CoG".

I was pretty confident we could beat Mizzou on the field last couple of years, but guess what!!! However, i really feel confident we'll start soon (like really soon).

I wouldn't be surprised if Auburn comes calling at some point. That's why getting this first OV might do the trick.

No matter the outcome Saturday, fans need to be in the seats vs. Tulsa. If anything, to show Kelley Bryant a glimpse of what Arkansas can be. You won't impress anyone with empty seats in a beautiful stadium.

I'll be there.  Going with my brother who is a TU grad.  It was pretty cool when I learned yesterday that Bryant was going to be at the same game.

Hopefully we have a great showing on the field and a lot of fan support in the stadium.

Not that I am worried about UNC, Bleacher report is reporting-“Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant is reportedly planning a visit with the North Carolina Tar Heels this weekend as he pursues a new opportunity on the transfer market, according to Inside Carolina's Greg Barnes.”

And my family and will be in attendance as we always are!  Go HOGS!!

It's between us and Auburn. That's what I hear. Don't know how it'll shake out, but whatever Jared Stidham does at the end of this season will probably play a part. Supposedly he's on the fence if he's going to head to the NFL draft after this year.
Stidham has gotten worse every year since his breakout freshman year at Baylor. Last year he had a stud RB and line that forced the other team to play 8 in the box. This year teams are playing the pass more and his percentage is around 60 percent. No way he goes high in this draft

Problem is his 67% completion rate is 90% flare passes to the backs or wideouts.  I don't believe he can get the ball to the studs.  If he were as good as most on here think he is, why isn't he playing ahead of a raw, talented frosh at Clemson?

Even if Bryant and Kelly are equal in everything... their is one thing that they absolutely arent equal at and thats running the football. So if Ty isnt a lot  better passer than I dont see how anyone wouldnt want Bryant.

Well maybe things will turn freezing in Fayetteville like they did back several years ago. I well remember that fact that the Tigers only wanted to huddle around the sideline warmers. They looked miserable and ready to head back to the bayou as soon as possible.

You can analyze this to death from every angle, but it really boils down to one salient point in my mind. 

Is Chad Morris willing to potentially upset the apple cart by bringing in a grad transfer with the hope of winning a few more games next season, at best, when he has just started to get buy in from the players? 

Every upper classmen is just a stud Fr. away from riding the pine.  I'm not sure how bringing in a grad transfer or a stud JC player is any different, if they come in and displace the people who have been with the program for awhile.  When you look at it objectively, in some ways it would speak to the faith that CCM would be able to instill in Kelly Bryant that he could come in, make a difference, and potentially make it to the NFL. 

I don't see the downside, if you are serious about setting up a culture where you are going to play the kids who give you the best chance to win...period.  Forget seniority, legacy, and all of those factors...just field the best 22 regardless, provided they are all following the rules and doing their jobs.  From that perspective, I don't see how you complain as a player.  I think the issues start when players feel coaches are "playing favorites," because the players know who the best players are, and when they're not on the field, THAT is what causes dissention faster than anything else.

Pretty compelling story, BUT it is worth noting that it matters who you have around you...which explains a lot with regard to Rosen and Allen's numbers, versus the receivers Bryant has to throw to. 

If Bryant comes in, I think it sends a message that CCM is committed to WINNING.  Not to coddling players, or worrying about hurting feelings.  It's still early enough that if that offends some players, then maybe they're not the ones you want on the field that are committed 100% to winning.  In this offense, even with Bryant, you're ONE play away from a second string QB being "the man."  We just saw how true that can be at Clemson with a close call to a season or career ending play.

It undoubtedly matters who you have around a QB.  I also think that a talent like Bryant would be a great teaching tool for the younger QB's on the roster given he would only be there for one season.  Over those games he would mentor and break in the new WR's that are on the way.  I would consider CCM's rebuilding process to be in effect this season AND next season, so if we are rebuilding, why not make the job easier, both for the 'now' and the future?

Only school mentioned so far that i worry about is Louisville. He can see what Lamar Jackson did there and also he would get the chance to play Clemson at least once. I would be he would love that opportunity.

Hope end the of the day, we will be able to get him here. Need huge turnout for the Tulsa game to not only show him some love but show this team some love for buying in and giving 100% after week 3.
Only thing about Louisville is that he would have to learn Petrino's complicated sdchemes. He knows our offense! Morris installed the offense at Clemson and when he left they kept it with the same terminology. No brainer. Literally!

It could be very productive to have Ty and KB to support each other since the RPO can get your QB beat up.   If I am KB I want to play a lot, show leadership after the PR issue of leaving Clemson and be very productive for NFL scouts.   The best way to play at an optimal level is to walk into an offense you already KNOW.   How many transfers come in and take 1/2 a season or more to learn the scheme and terminology to even play?   KB can be productive in Spring practice because of his comfort level.

Is that not what Petrino did with Mallet. Mallet came in and I think the younger Dick brother left. Seem to work out pretty good.
Good players want to win and if getting a better QB adds wins the team will support him IMO.

Or Storey can just beat him out. Storey has this season to build himself up to be able to do that. If he can't, then he needs to go anyways.

As far as upsetting the apple cart, it definitely helps if you are bringing in a guy with KB's record and experience.  The record itself gets respect but also the fact that is a 5th year guy and has lead a team should help the transition.

The way you do it is name him the starter from day one.  Let the hurt feelings happen during the off season and spring ball.  It's a non issue by the time the season rolls around.  I would hate it for Ty but I think big picture positives outweigh the negatives.

Confused by this post.  That's exactly what I said....that the players know when there's a better player not playing, so you're not fooling anyone if you're the coach and playing a lesser talented player for whatever reason.  You lose the team as a coach when you DON'T play the best players, because if they're the right players...they want to win.  If Bryant ends up coming here...you let him compete, prove he's the best, and play him...if he does.  In our particular circumstances, that may weed out some of the players who think seniority matters, because CBB seemed to subscribe to that, but that's just a part of this process.   

But...players and fans don't always know best.  I guarantee you there are still some fans who saw Kelley come and and throw the bomb for a TD right out of the gate, and said..."That's what a strong arm buys you...he should be playing."  Then later in the game, he threw the pick...that killed us.  It's the coaches' job to figure out what gives them the best chance of winning, and it isn't always the player with the best RAW talent, if they make poor decisions or don't give it 100% on every play.

Hopefully the Hogs will show up and try to impress KB.

Sure, we don't have the tools he had at Clemson, but at Arkansas he would be able to run the whole offense. That would accelerate the offensive install and shorten the rebuild by half a season, giving us a better chance to start 2018 strong.

His ability to make plays with his legs would immediately make our offense more productive.

He got fired at Clemson with stats that would have him as the #3 or #4 QB in the SEC.
Trevor Lawrence was/is considered a once in a generation type QB.  Dabo saw that Lawrence could handle the situation and he gave the starting reps to him to get him more experience since he is the future of Clemson football until he leaves to go pro.

KB simply.....well.....got screwed.  In KB's words when this was going down, he didn't feel he had done anything to NOT be the starting QB.  Sometimes you just get beat out by someone who is better or has more upside and that is Trevor Lawrence. 

It would be such a perfect situation for KB to come and teach KJ Jefferson the offense then leave and soph KJ will be all the better for it.  My hope is that KB will want to be a part of building a program and will relish running the offense with the weapons that CCM is recruiting right now.  Sure, the road will be bumpy for him and I can certainly understand if he chooses another program, but by God its time for something good to happen for the Hogs.  Its time that we get that recruit that we weren't supposed to get that starts it all. (Like Ron Huery in basketball for Nolan out of Memphis)  KB coming to Ark would bring more spotlight on the program and get other recruits to think that it was good enough for KB to come there for his last year.  Something must be special up on the Hill.  I hope CCM can pull this off. 

I feel for Ty if KB comes.  But its whats best for the program.  This program needs talent talent talent and KB has talent even if it is just for one year

Under your analysis, if KB comes to Arkansas then Ty gets screwed.

What if Casey Dick had been a Jr BPs first year and you’ve got Ryan Mallett ready to start the next year. Yeah you feel bad for Casey but do you let that in any way influence your decision to start RM?

In sum:
1. This is not about TS
2. This is not about KB
3. This is about what is best for Arkansas
4. The coaching staff has evidently decided that bringing in KB would be good for Arkansas or at least that it is worth exploring.

I don't think "screwed" is a fair word. But if he loses out to a transfer its a bad deal. Ty has his chance to win the job now. And he will have a chance next year if he doesn't transfer. Thats just how it goes sometimes.

And this is why players should be able to leave. A guy should have a chance to make his name. If Ty gets beat out and wants to go, let him go.
