  • FANONTHEHILL, can you tell us if the team goes over to the student section and sings the fight song before leaving the field the way Nutt's teams did. Don't recall seeing that this year. That is the one thing I give Nutt credit for during his years. Seems like the boys head to the locker room at the final gun, but I could be mistaken. Could you enlighten us on this?

    When is the last time you've been to a game?

    Our team always goes to the student section to sing the fight song and "Oh Lord it's hard to be humble" - after a win.

    That was not a Nutt special.

  • Houston, with all of his flaws, embedded a fight in our teams and a "us" against the world view/chip on our shoulder where we'd bring it.

    Hell, when they knew they were out, we go and knock off number 1 LSU in Death Valley.

    I fondly remember his pre-game speeches, honestly, that was what he did best. We need someone with brains offensively but also bring what he did in that regard.

    Could he be brought on, not as an assistant, but a quality control type person where he could do pre-game speeches etc? Just a thought.

    I fully agree! We need to take a serious look at Houston Nutt!

  • They not only came down, they took a trip up Dickson.  Arkansas beat number 1 Texas 42-11.  A bonfire at Dickson and Thompson burned 4 inches of asphalt from corner to corner. 

    I watched that bonfire. Epic. There was also a guy in a tractor trailer truck cab parked in front of of the Roger's Rec Hall and constantly blowing his horn.

  • Despise is a little harsh.  I can't honestly say I despise anyone.  But I intensely dislike Houston Nutt.  I would  prefer he not be anywhere in the State of Arkansas but certainly nowhere close to our university or football program.    >:(

  • I'm not a Nutt fan at all, but I understand that the decision to leave for Oklahoma State was more than just playing time. Most of all it was made by a 20 year old kid. I hope people don't still judge me by the decisions I made when I was a 20 year old.

    There have literally been hundreds of guys in his same position who chose to stay and be Razorbacks. He chose to take care of himself.

    You call that Razorback spirit?

  • Here's a little trivia!  Name two SEC coaches who finished their careers with losing records to Vandy........

  • Nutt for AD...Gus for coach.
  • #63 by PolishPigPower on 14 Nov 2017
  • I remember during that 1998 season on the coaches show they would show a bit of the pregame speech. He gave the one about there being lots of tigers and bulldogs but only one Razorback. The guy might have been a poor x's and o's coach but he could get the players and fans ready. Don't recall ever hearing anything out of Bielema's mouth that has gotten me super excited for a game.

    Saban and Belicheck aren't rah-rah guys, either.  I don't think speaking style necessarily equates to success.   It works if it is real.  For all my faults about CBB and my belief that his time has ran out here, I believe the guy is really who he appears to be.  Not everyone is cut out to be Lou or Jimmy.

  • "It's not the Xs and the Os but the Jimmys and the Joes". Oh wait, wrong forum.

  • Bret Bielema has very few of the attributes that you need in any HC at any level.  Even the strait and narrow of not getting in trouble may be false.  These are 18 to 22 year olds.  One way to control them is to threaten their playing time.  Likely the best way to control them in fact.  If you recruit lower ego kids who likely had a decent upbringing your crime problems should be less.  Unfortunately, your won/loss record will likely be worse too.

    My personal feeling are:  Before hiring Nutt at any position for the UofA, I wold rather close down the program and I sincerely mean this.

  • Nutt was a good coach to start with.  He believed in Arkansas because he grew up with that spirit.  Whoever leads Arkansas athletics and the football team has to have the firm belief that Arkansas is as great as any other member of the SEC and a vision of how to get a team and the entire state to buy in to that belief.  In 1998 an entire state thought we were.  In 2017 few do. 
         Agreed.  Tired of the we can't expect to do better mentality.

  • I think CBP saw Arkansas as having all the ingredients needed to build a successful football program. They're still here, just hard to see at the present.

    Key words “after a win”. He could have gone to many games the past five years and not seen it.

    You don't want any part of this, ever:



    Fifty! Fifty!! And, the old line, "itsy, bitsy tip of my teeny tiny tip of my little finger..."

    "You think Fla's happy? You think Ga's happy?"  Lol.

  • What the heck is WRONG with you people!?

    Ten years wasn't enough?

    Unbelievable.

    20 years old is not a kid. It is a young adult. Just like all adults they make decisions that are thought out sometimes and sometimes not. Kids make decisions without thinking like an adult. IF you believe he made the decision to leave in the middle of the night without thinking about it first and not telling his coach then you are probably wrong. We all make rash decisions but I bet he thought that one out quite a bit before doing it. It still on the surface looked like a kid when he left as he did though even though he wasn't. Judging someone's decision for what they do as a young adult is relative to the situation. Besides how do you know it was about more than playing time? Did he personally convince you of that.

  • Nutt was, and is, a cancer.  This guy can't even get a call back after Ole Miss.  The only people who scratch their heads wondering why, are probably the Arkansas fans who bought Ole Miss gear when he got fired.

    I saw a FB post people were sharing from a former player, that had several former players tagged, asking for Broyles daughter to facilitate the talk to bring Nutt back as Head Coach.  Do people not forget his ego was so bruised when he got fired that he personally tried to damage our program on his way out the gate?  Unbelieveable.

    I agree. I don't get all the people who hate Houston. I know he made some mistakes in his life, but who hasn't? The man loved this state. He loved that helmet. He could motivate like no other with his speeches. You cannot fake that type of passion. Was he the greatest play caller? Of course not. Did he make some mistakes in his personal life? Yes. All of us do. But it is undeniable that he was a Razorback through and through.
    It's funny that we hear all of this uncommon, "doing it the right", way malarkey, but no one  brings up the shady sh*t Bert was involved in at Wisky. Getting hammered at college bars on Madison. Hitting on co-eds in the bathroom. Is it good for a College football coach to be at the college bars carousing with 18-22 yr old co-eds?
    Multiple sources have seen him at establishments on Dickson St, namely the secret door bar, drunk as a skunk & involved in some activities that I wouldn't characterize as #uncommon as that term is defined by Jeffy & Bert. We will all find out some ugly truths after these guys are sent packing. How will Bo & company defend that stuff?

    Sonds like Bret has a drinking problem. That would explain the weight gain over past 5 years. From already obese to grossly obese.

    I like the way he moves both hands in 2nd video when he talks about the negativity coming back on his players. And the way he gets whispery when making the point about it being 50 yrs since OM won back to back Jan 1 bowl games. He is one comical dude.
