Only 11 can fit on the field at any one time. To win, we just need 1 of our 11 to beat 1 of theirs and for our coaches to exploit that.

If it weren't for Vanderbilt's four points on two safeties, those could easily be scores.

You seem to be pretty connected... What % do you give us to win this game? I believe we have the talent and FINALLY the coaches to compete. I think we can shock the world

I think it depends on our oline and defense...

Id rather play them game one than somewhere in the middle..

Not sure what our chances of actually winning are but I think we can give them a fight if we can get over the Chad Morris fun of the past 2 years and dont fold when something bad happens..

If its just these numbers we match up evenly with 3 opponents. That says 1.5 wins.

But there is more context. We haven't won an SEC game in ages. We have changed coaches 3 times since our last sec win. So, winning 1 is a solid improvement.

It is mind boggling how bad AR has been the past few years. Just stupefyingly bad.

That just shows that teams like UK, MSU, Mizzou, and OM have done more with less the last couple years.  We aren't stacked and loaded with tons of talent, but there's enough there that we shouldn't have 4 wins the last two years.  Hopefully this staff will push the kids and help them find some success.  If we can find some positive notes, we can begin to build off that and get ourselves out of this mess.  Until they start believing that they are capable of kicking ass, they will not get the most out of their ability.

Tells me we are about where we thought we are in the West - 5th in terms of talent.

Also shows that A&M is the most underachieving team in the conference.  The more things change the more they stay the same.

Perfect summary of the status quo.

Yeah. Boise State's never won one of those comparisons. They have done alright. And Missouri beat us four straight with lower-ranked recruiting classes. What matters is what you do with the players after they leave high school.

Georgia leads series 10-4


We got em back in the day in two Bowl games though

I remember the Cotton Bowl after the 75 season

We kicked their butts second half of that game.

I was at the A&M game in LR that got us into that game. One of my fondest memories as a Razorback fan. The crowd was amazing that night.

Games like those are why I am a loyal fan to this day. Even after the S!!+shows the last few years

That 1975 season—my sports consciousness was fully developed and I was 100% into the Hog universe. I knew the name of every starter on that team. And those 2 games are classics, kind of a 1-A and 1-B. But the Aggie win probably had more staying power and more unusual caveats to it. Really cool you were at that one.

With you on that one. I was 11 and at that age consumed every bit of info I could.

I remember vividly Freddie Barnes jumping like forty feet high ( seemed like it anyway) to catch that TD at the end of the first half. The entire stadium seemed like it exploded.

Funny how I can’t remember my wife’s name half the time. ( just call her honey these days. She caught me going through her purse once, wasn’t looking for money.... simply an ID......... I digress )

But some moments are etched in my memory banks like it was yesterday.

The USC game in LR the year before is also one of those. Was in the end zone that Pat Haden stepped out of for a safety. Same kind of moment with the crowd on that play. It was loud.

So since 2012, A&M has been more of an under achiever than Arkansas?

With their alumni and resources, I'd say there's certainly an argument to be made.  Think of how many more NC's LSU may have won if Miles had ever considered that having a really good QB is kind of a big deal.  To me, you can still win 9-10 games a year but still underachieve.

Oh for sure. They haven't had the success they would have liked. I'd just be willing to bet like $40 grand most people would think since 2012, Arkansas has been the most underachieving team in the conference. Especially with their records in 2010 and 2011. Not to mention an sec west title in 2006.


I'm just shocked because bphi11ips is usually one of the "we can always win 2 to 11 games a season" kind of poster and goes on to lean towards the 11 game expectation. Just thought it was out of character of him to be more content with Arkansas's record than A&M's.

We could lose 8 more straight games against TAMU and still lead the all time series against them.

And we could beat LSU 15 times in a row starting this year and still be about 5 games below .500 against them.

So tell me, if we rolled off 15 straight against LSU, are you going to talk about that streak, or the all-time series record, which we’d still be losing?

A&M hasn't hurt us. Hiring crappy coaches that can't recruit and develop Players has killed us. Trying to go cheap on coaches and staff is why we are here . Playing A&M in Texas has helped get us in front of Texas kids . but who wants to play for a Guy like Morris if you can go elsewhere . he did get better recruits than his skill set should have

No offense To Pittman, I really like him and think he will be a success because 1 he works really hard 2 the players love him and believe in him. 3 he hired good assistants 4 He is well connected and liked among coaches so replacement assistants should be easy . But to my point . He is one of the cheaper SEC coaches . He has no real coaching experience as either a Head coach or Coordinator . Again we took a big chance On an unproven guy . His hiring Odom who has H/c experience was huge as was Briles . Our recruiting started pretty good since we have yet to play a game. And should improve once players see our style

$20M+ in buyouts on coaches in a 3 year span is not “going cheap.” It’s sheer ineptitude by the PTB.

I don't think our problems since 2012 had anything to do with TAMU.

That's crazy, everything is decided on what we did the last two years with absolutely no knowledge of how far this team might have come since Pittman took over. It's as if we have the same returning QB's from last year and the same coaching staff.

No, adding TAMU to the SEC hasn’t hurt us.  Only losing to them every year since then.
