To be a winner you have to take your shot against the best.  Even if it means the odds are against you.  You still win your share of games.

To be a winner you have to win. It's really not that deep.

We take our shot against the best every week. Are we winners because of it?

You're one of those dudes who ride the SEC coattails, aren't you? Because somehow Alabama's success makes us better, right? Even though we went 4-8 and Alabama kicked our teeth in. Just like Clemson winning it all last year makes Wake Forest better.

You cannot spin this any other way, my man. You're saying you're okay with an exciting LOSS over a boring WIN.

That's mindblowing.

Not at all. I am not arguing with you anymore.  I want the Hogs to be competitive with the best. Would I trade Georgia's situation with a win over a podunk school in a podunk bowl.  No, I would not.

So if we go 0-12 but lose each game by 1 point, you're good with that? By your statement, you would be.

Sorry, but...[CENSORED] that.

Ha, wins and losses aren't complex issues my man. They're pretty black and white.

I understand your point of view. About being competitive and playing the best. Cool, whatever. Bottom line is you're still saying you'd take an exciting loss over a boring win.

What's complex is someone advocating for losses over wins. I'll give you that one...that's the sign of a complex mind that I cannot, nor do I want to, comprehend.

So...again...you just said you'd take an Arkansas Razorbacks loss over a win.

Is it fall yet?
So when someone suggest that Arkansas leave the SEC and go the Big 12 the answer is always that we can't give up the money.  What are those fans saying if not that we would rather lose in the SEC than win in the Big 12?  As long as the money is good enough.

To get any where close to the type team we are watching play tonight.

Fulltiltboogie
Hammerdown
Jimmiesandjoes
XsandOs

These are definitely the best two teams in the nation right now.

Coach Morris has his work cut out

We won't ever get there.  We'll never look like either of those teams defensively.  The size of their LBs and DBs combined with their speed won't be seen at Arkansas in those numbers.  Probably not offensively either when you consider the size of many of their skill players.  We can be successful though. 

You look at OU's defense.  Perhaps we could get there.  Norwood is a name tossed around here as a "lost" recruit.  He was physically manhandled by UGa all game.  Their wr's abused him including on TD passes.  On the winning TD, Fromm completely took him out of the play on a block.  OU had speed and some athletes like their undersized DE who is a great college pass rusher.

What scares me is Morrisí offense.  Not the aspect of scoring, because I believe we will. The problem is our defense and the toll itís ginna take on them.  Weíre going to have recruit quality 2s and get them experienced or hope for a bunch of 3 & outs  Iím hoping The Chief can do both of those. Itíll take until year 3 on the depth. We should see improvement in overall defense with the big 10 mentality gone. That alone should result in less time on the field.

I said that exactly.  Weíre not going to be Alabama.  That isnít our model for success.  But we could be OU.  And they were within a play of being in the championship game.

OU has won 10+ games in 15 of 18 years. We aren't in the same stratosphere as OU as a program.

We arenít going to win like OU has.  They out recruit their competition with one exception. But we could resemble them in how we play and have success. I hate it.  But itís the recruiting base we have.  I think the last stated approach could have worked but the oline was never built.  So we are going to head down a different path.

yes how much winning that happens remains to be seen.  Obviously OU level of success would be a huge win for us, but i agree i bet we look very similar to them in terms of speed speed speed and offense with a D that hopefully can force negative plays for our opponents.

Our players look nothing like those kids.


Makes you wonder about steroids etc.

Before Kirby, a lot of GA guys over here claimed they highly suspect/know that the gumps are stick'n needles in the backsides of the players. If you look at the GA players now that Kirby is at GA, they appear to look very much like the gumps players now. Thick, lean and fast and quick. Apparently Needles + Bagmen = winning formula.

Competition.  The top of the SEC is bigger, deeper and faster.  OU's answer for it has been exceptional qb play.  They are rarity though.  Ok St, TCU, Baylor, TT, K St,... not physically imposing teams.  All built similar and with the exception of K St all with similar offenses.  Why Texas decided to stoop down to their level when they could build LSU/Bama like teams I have no idea.  We have a B12 recruiting base trying to play teams with a Deep South/Fl base.  Advantage OU and OSU.

Bingo.

The thing separating OU from Arkansas is not some inherent advantage but the conference that they play in.

Without Saban the top of the SEC isnít any really tougher than any other league.  The athletes might be better, but that doesnít necessarily translate to dominant teams on the field.  Sometimes it doesnít even translate to good teams.

Take off the Saban blinders and you realize that there isnít a team in the league that we canít expect to beat at least 50% of the time if we get to where we should be.

Would depend if they are where they should be.  Good thing about last expansion is we wonít see Fl or Uga too often.  The size and physicality of the conference is different at the top.   Bama was this way pre Saban.  Just not consistently coached well for a while.

Quiet......you're bashing players with your facts.


Yet we saw Nick Saban bench a quarterback in the second half who is 25-2 I believe................for a freshman. Yet we had to ride the Allen coattail to the bank for 5 years.....

As I said, it doesnít always translate to dominance on the field.  In fact, it usually doesnít.  Saban has completely skewed reality around here.

Don't see how BA or Ellis had anything to do personally with either of those people leaving. They came to Arkansas because they loved the program and gave all they had to us. Both of them created good memories for the hogs and I think it's dumb to bash them because you don't like the previous administration.

Iron and a few others are so jealous of NWA that they now want to act like the only in state players the school recruits are from the 7a west. But these guys are still fighting the Civil War so there is that too.

Funny though, Greenlaw is a 7a west player and they don't have a problem with him.

They think you are not really an Arkansan or do not know what the south is unless you grew up in a share cropper shack in the delta.

Greenlaw is a good player


Woulda made a great hybrid.  Heís out of position and ineffective at LBer

Guys like him and Eliis have had to play MLB because they were the best we could get. Maybe if every freaking hs coach in the state would quit putting everyone on offense, the state could start producing some good lb's like they used to do.

We take our shot against the best every week. Are we winners because of it?

You're one of those dudes who ride the SEC coattails, aren't you? Because somehow Alabama's success makes us better, right? Even though we went 4-8 and Alabama kicked our teeth in. Just like Clemson winning it all last year makes Wake Forest better.

You cannot spin this any other way, my man. You're saying you're okay with an exciting LOSS over a boring WIN.

That's mindblowing.
lets talk about UCF's NC....

oh yeah they don't have one, because they don't play against the best. 

doesn't matter how much you win, if its not against the best.

so if you want to be the best you gotta play the best.

SEC and Georgia play against the best and both made it to the NC.

I don't care that we are a middle of the road SEC program.  you gotta start somewhere.  we are in the right conference, now we just have to figure out a winning formula.

I donít believe they were the best they could get


Last staff was lazy.  Stuck the NWAers in there to deflect heat.

I know you don't, but you are not the one out there recruiting. I don't see any other p5's in here raiding linebackers either.

Iron and a few others are so jealous of NWA that they now want to act like the only in state players the school recruits are from the 7a west. But these guys are still fighting the Civil War so there is that too.

Funny though, Greenlaw is a 7a west player and they don't have a problem with him.

They think you are not really an Arkansan or do not know what the south is unless you grew up in a share cropper shack in the delta.

I don't even know what a share cropper shack is......I grew up in a big house in the middle of 50 acres of hardwood and pine........

However, I do know what Midwest America and southern America is.....and the south isn't NWA. More like Topeka, KS or Branson, MO.

Other than history and some tradition what inherit advantages does OU have over Arkansas?  Forget OU, what inherit advantages does Oklahoma State have over Arkansas?

I'd say being a blue blood program for a half century with 7 national titles and 47 conference championships is a pretty substantial "inherent" advantage over Arkansas' situation.

Oklahoma State is not a bad comparison, but that wasn't the subject.

I like it when people project their personal feelings as fact. You say the last staff was lazy. Do you know the amount of hours they put into communicating with HS prospects? How much film they watched? They had faults in other areas that can be picked at rather than making things up.

That take just makes no sense at all.

You're telling me a coaching staff did not play the players and lineup that they thought would give them the best chance of winning to "take heat" away from them?

Don't buy that for one second.

To answer his question about OK State.....facilities and oil money to pump into the program. And a winning system and coach. That matters.

Arkansas can't compete with T. Boone Pickens money. Or all his oil money buddies.
