Here are just four examples, and they all happened on the same day:

Skip Bertman was extremely nice to me. Was on a business trip in BR and had time to kill. Went by Alex Box to get a business associate a baseball shirt.  Coach was just getting out of his car as we pulled up. Told him we were looking for a shirt and he said they were out. Offered a personalized autographed icture for my friend.  Invited us back to his office and walked us through the area where only player are allowed. He knew I was a HOG FAN. Treated me with respect. Class for sure. This was about 15 years ago. I still cant stand most lsu fans and love to see them lose at anything. Delighted, actually. Would not go there for football. If you want to go, have fun. Hope we win. WOOO PIG!

For example, with the Harvin comparison

Harvin had 194 collegiate carries to 133 receptions. Compare that to the NFL where he had 353 receptions to just 146 carries (along with 152 KR's).

WR's won't miss much of a beat without Hammonds IMO. Not to say that he wouldn't be the starting slot guy, but the dropoff behind him wouldn't be terrible. Contrast that to RB where if you remove Hammonds from the equation, you force Hayden to play and if any of the backs gets injured, we would only have walk-ons to fill in after.

In hindsight, no thinking man would agree to his next hire. Compare the resume's of Nutt and Bielema. Who do you think performed more due diligence?
Funny, if CBB is here ten seasons, it says here he will do well to duplicate Nutt's records.
I said that on hiring day...that we were heading for another Nutt-like regime, record-wise. Which was actually pretty good by Arkansas standards.
I believe Nutt's W-L was 75-48 overall, and I'm not what his SEC overall record was.

I think there were mostly positive, and one primary negative, for him remaining at WR.  The positives are that when you look at film of him he looks like an elite slot receiver.  He has the perfect combination of skills, size, quickness and speed to excel in that position.  Being in space with his skills makes him a much greater threat.  That said, he would also make a good change of pace back and giving him 3-6 carries out of the backfield plus packages that he motions from RB to slot and others from slot to RB gives defenses even more to think about.  The one negative is I feel personally, he was not strong in pass pro and had that issue with swinging the ball around like a loaf of bread last year that would limit carries from the backfield.  Also, at 6'0" and 197 pounds, he really wouldn't be physicially ideal to combat 240 pound linebackers coming on a blitz.

From a personal standpoint, I agree. From a personnel standpoint, I think that he has a bigger impact at RB than WR. Namely, depending on what Chase shows, Hammonds gives an opportunity for Chase to RS since they have a similar skill set and Bielema in the past has only given about 20-40 total carries over the course of a season to that style back. Something like 200/200 for Whaley and Williams. another 100 for Hammonds and then 30 or so for Hayden/Cantrell with Whaley and Williams easily able to give a bit more than 200 each. Conner will will probably get a few more carries as well, particularly in some blowouts.

At WR, Hammonds would be good no doubt. However, we also have Cornelius, Stewart, Pettway, Jones, Martin, Nance, as well as Cantrell, O'Grady, Patton... There's a lot of balls to go around and a lot of talented guys to catch them. RB is now a lot more thin than WR.

It is easy to say that now, but Ford was a disinterested drunk who couldn't even remember the players' names on his show while he was at Arkansas.  Yeah, in hindsight maybe it would have been better if he had gotten another year, but no thinking person can fault the decision to fire him.
Yes, I was beyond ready for a change. 1998 wouldn't have been anything like it was if Ford had stayed.
In the same season 1997, I sat through the 'did we score a touchdown?' fiasco in Shreveport in yet another loss to SMU(three in a row), and a rag-tag, who-cares? effort in a 39-18 loss in LR to South Carolina. Embarassing.
Danny did some good things, but it was time for a change.

The eight people who follow Vandy recruiting on a message board must be beside themselves.

Any reason to not think we would not keep recruiting him?

First time I ever went to TGI Fridays was before a football game in fall of 80. I had an older, buddy from my hometown, that I drove down to the Rock with. He managed Town & Country liquor in Fayettenam. Low and behold we end up sharing a table with his friend who was one of the girls in Playboy from the girls of the SWC issue in the late 70's.

I had a good friend who worked at Town & Country around that time.  So I remember the manager then.  Can't recall his name, but remember he died young.  Seems like around mid-late 80's.
