Folks, get real.  If we should actually beat A&M with 2 weeks to get ready, what have we done.  The way nearly everyone is describing A&M is a midlevel AAC caliber team.  Hell we should beat them and name by how bad before we tee it up.  With all the mouthing BB and company has heard within the past week from us and with all his blowing about getting this corrected, one should expect us to win.  But it won't last.  BB won't actually work hard for the long haul.  We might smoke for a game but BB has absolutely nothing he cares to offer long term.  Thats hard work.

Hogs had 9 months to prepare for TCU. Played them last year so not unfamiliar with them. Blown out in a home game by TCU because Hogs' offense could not put the ball in the EZ. But by God they sure can move it down the field.

If Memphis can beat UCLA we need to look real close at the Memphis coach when it's time to hire.
UCLA would BLOW our doors off at the moment and this guy puts a squad together at MEMPHIS that beats UCLA - I love it. I don't care if it's his recruits or not - he beat a high powered offense with his own high powered O

Actually it took an INT return. The Memphis O didn't play as well statistically as the UCLA O. The INT return was big.

Norvell may be a good coach.  Probably two seasons too soon for him to take on a program like ours (think Stan Heath...need a track record over time) when Fuente built what he is using.  What Brohm did with Western Kentucky and the marvelous job he is doing at Purdue suggest he may be ready to step up.  There are a couple of others out there as well.

Fuente has actually built a program.  He did it at Memphis before he went to VT.  They were 5-31 in the 3 years prior to him arriving.  Norvell hasn't done that.  He has one 8-5 year with another coach's players.  Fuente wasn't left a shiz program, that's why he doesn't have to say he needs his own players.

i'm sure CBB has been given plenty of time to turn the program around and things are not looking good. It's time to look ahead and start figuring things out.

A coaches past predicts his future and the past 4 years haven't been pretty. I will be in Dallas on Sat - let's see if the winning streak begins, I sure hope it does.

well you make a good point about his offense and I can tell you that he is recruiting players to MEM that havent normally come here.  Justin Fuentes got things started and when he bolted for VaTech, folks over here thought things might go south with the program but Norvell has maintained if not improved the recruiting in the short time he has been here.  MEM is a basketball school to be sure and he has the city excited about football. It was fun watching him and his team having fun in the locker room after the UCLA win.  I hope to see the Hogs that excited someday.

Personally, I think BB isnt going anywhere for a couple of years, but if he did, I would hope JLong would come over here and talk to Norvell.  He could be that lightening in a bottle that we have been looking for at Arkansas

valid points, but IMHO, there is no way Fuentes would leave VaTech to come to the brutal SEC West to a school where it is apparently difficult as Hades to recruit top notch players.   Fuentes got his big time job.  VaTech has a great fan base and he doesnt have to play Bama and LSU and Auburn every freakin year.   He might very well be a better coach than Norvell, but he isnt coming to Arkansas. We might have gotten him when he was at MEM but now, Im afraid that ship has sailed.

I watched the Memphis/UCLA highlights.  Of course highlights don't tell the whole story.  So maybe someone can fill me in on why he faked a field goal to have a kicker throw a hail mary while leading by 3 late in the game?  I'm sure there was a good reason.

I gotta say that Mike finally has started putting together some good recruiting classes and its taken 6 years but he might have something going now.   I was frustrated with him like a lot of fans were but he looks like he has turned the corner and is building something with some good recruiting.  He did get played by the Monk brothers and he did get screwed by Reggie Perry, but all in all he has been doing fine.

They were ranked because they have a top qb returning because last year they sucked also.  They were 4-8. There was no reason for them to be ranked other than mora is on the hot seat and they beat a mediocre Texas A&M team.  They will probably go 6-6 maybe 7-5 and Mora will be fired at the end of the year.

I'm not claiming UCLA is a great team, just that Memphis got it done against a ranked team. I don't care to argue about rankings - when we are ranked we never question rankings, it's when we aren't ranked that we call b.s. on other ranked teams
