QB: Yes, but has so far regressed this year
RB: Step back, but unforeseen loss and still young, could make argument
FB: Small was better than what we currently have, but I like Jackson and Johnson
TE: Overall depth has improved, but come on, Henry is hard to replace...
WR: Big fat noooo
OL: hahahahahaha

DT: DL has regressed majorly
LB: Better talent and 3-4 plays to their strengths. Spaight was killer though, so gonna say no.
CB: Step up in my opinion! Moving in right direction
S: Rohan Gaines was great! Santos seems to be getting there and have gotten better since last 2 years

K:  :puke:

KR: C'mon man, we had something good with Korliss...
PR: Jred can take it to the house and has twice, both called back by penalties. So that one is even since he's still returning

Overall depth seems to be better, but top end talent isn't there.

Absolutely. Depth is important. But think about what elite talent does for you. What top 5 team has only players you've never heard of?

There are transcendent players in our history that we couldn't have done without. We need the next Billy Ray Smith, Kenoy Kennedy, Ken Hamlin, Anthony Lucas, Ryan Mallett, Joe Adams, Felix Jones, Darren McFadden.

I mean. We had as unstable a program as you could have in 2012. The John L. year was the darkest year of Arkansas football that I can remember. I don't think Bielema is getting it done, but our program is markedly better than when he took over. If you think otherwise, you're blind or forgetful. Maybe both.

Let's see where we end up this year, but the good news is that we're a more stable program now than we were then. If and when we do hire a new coach, it should be easier to find someone who wants to take over the program and take on the challenge of making Arkansas more than just a 7-8 win a year program.

He's proved to me that his style of offense is not going to work against good SEC teams.  We couldn't even run against TCU.  We run well against weak opponents, but usually don't do well against better defenses.  They stack the line & stuff us. No passing game either.  Offense needs to be changed....

We have an extreme amount of inexperience at WR. You don't replace the receivers we had from last season over night. With that being said, we have to improve on O from TCU to cool off Coach's seat.

This was basically the results of my preseason analysis which is why I predicted 6-6 with loss to TCU and 3-5 again in SEC.

We had 1 down year with Smith. That one year should not obliterate a program. And we were preseason #8 in the country that year. Finished 11-2 the year before in Petrino's last year and year before that, we were in the Sugar Bowl vs Ohio St. Bielema comes in and promptly goes 0-8 in SEC. Then 2-6 in SEC the next year, his 2nd. Not exactly turning it around like Nutt turned it around after 4 years of Danny Ford or like Petrino turned it around in less than 3 years after a decade of Nutt silliness. Now the Hogs are regressing under Bielema. Getting worse over past 2 years. If this year is another 3-5 in SEC or worse, anyone who says we are stable is right...same way a doctor is right when he says someone who is about to die is stable for now and resting peacefully.

In Year 5, you should be able to replace them!

Our program is as stable as the Titanic on the bottom of the Atlantic.  That thing is so stable that it hasn't moved in 105 years.

This is so true.  And all we have heard is that he is building depth.  CBB has swung and missed in recruiting more than Jose Canseco.

That's CBB's job to even the classes at position. He should have seen that a couple of years in advance and recruited accordingly.

I don't disagree but when you have to replace the amount of production and experience we had there a year ago, it won't happen in game two of the following season. I would expect a good coach to have it come to fruition at a higher pace than what we saw this past Saturday though.

I think next year the depth on defense will be good (not as good if we lose the Huco on the DL)

Like when Ford left because he just could not win, Nutt had a fine team when he got here.
If the QB play is good next year......it could be a pretty good team but Bielema has his players sleep walking thru games and it is hard to judge how good we might be with a different staff

Will be all for naught if the OL doesn't shore up...after our best O-lineman is gone too.  Especially pass blocking, because I'm not expecting a 6-7,270 QB to be so nimble footed that he'll be able to consistently escape pressure.
