Hogville turning on itself....
« on: December 05, 2017, 07:55:55 pm »

I'm really disappointed with the venom here.  If CM is our coach, let's get behind him.  He wouldn't have been my choice.  The negativity here in Hogville is really bothersome.  It's like a bunch spoiled brats who aren't satisfied with their X-mas gifts.  Isn't it about family and friends!  I don't think there's any choice that would have satisfied most of us here.  For you angry posters....I hope you don't beat your dogs...or worse.

There is no one coach that would have made everyone happy.   That's just the way it is.  No one has to be negative about it  but again that's just the way they are.   He's not my first choice but I hope he proves me wrong.     WPS

Give them a couple days to calm down. By the start of the season next year, everyone will be on board.

It's very simple.  2/3 of the people here are stupid.  They don't study sports and have no comprehension of a head coaching job or an AD job.  They don't worry about facts...just what they hear on the radio.  They don't do the homework so they spout off stupid opinions they believe to be fact.  SMH

I would have been happy with any other name. Morris alone is the name causing the uproar and people are kidding themselves if you think this board is alone.

I have about 15 people in a group chat in shock. They don't post on here. People at my work...not one excited. It is not just Hogville.

Exactly. This is a blog, it doesn’t matter for anything.

This coach will win or he won’t. Hogville will have zero impact on that.

why do you care what other fans think? why does everyone have to be happy? this ain't a stepford wife scenario.  fans don't have to be 'united" about a hire.  you know what unites fans.  Winning.

Ding. Ding. Ding. Let's say it again, Hogville has zero impact on winning and losing. It also has almost zero impact on the program; Morris was at best 5th choice by Hogville posters. He got the job.

Now, go watch the Spring game and see if you like what is offered. That is all.

The radio LOVES this hire as much as Gus does. If people went by what sports radio in Arkansas is saying we would all be in love with the hire. Bottom line is people saw the other options. All those options in most people's opinions were better choices and the rumor is none of them were interviewed besides Leach.

Time will tell and the truth will come out. In the meantime it is very reasonable to be concerned that a guy with a losing record trying to escape from the sinking ship that is SMU is now our head coach.

After we paid millions to get rid of long and bret. We bring in a guy with a worse record in a worse conference.

SMU slightly improved. Ok. He is a great guy. Ok. He saved Clemson...ok.

He is a underwhelming, boring hire. That IMO will bore recruits. Make other schools in the SEC breath a little easier.

And in hindsight makes firing Bret look like a huge mistake.

 Agree..and it's so easy to use Google. There's quite a bit of information saying this can potentially be a great hire.

Heard this same darn when Bert was hired.  Sad we “should have to do homework” to justify an annual $3.5M salary.

You need qualifications to see what goes on here? I’d say he nailed it.

Some of these ‘fans’ are a joke. They are only happy when there is turmoil and complaining to do.

Why are the people complaining considered "fans" instead of just fans?  Are they false fans?  Because they care and don't blindly follow someone, they're second-rate false fans?  Is that what it is?  I believe you completely whiffed on what I was getting at.

Please don't say he is doing it the right way.  😉

My point is that we heard an awful lot of that about a man who does not appear to have the coaching ability of Curley Hallman.

IDK if this guy is any good or not.  And IDK if you were one of the right way Bielema guys or not.  And not trying to pick a fight or be a jerk.

Just saying that kind of pronouncement post-Bielema does not carry the weight like it once did.

People can't just turn it off this quickly. Give them time to vent. Once the coach shows he has potential and begins to get the fans on his side they will come over full swing.

The healing process will begin once the official word is given on the new head coach.

I have about 15 people in a group chat in shock. They don't post on here. People at my work...not one excited. It is not just Hogville.

Just asking, but did any of your workmates even look into his history or the boxes he checks off in terms of what was wanted in a coach?

Will he be a success? Not sure. But is there reason to have some excitement? Yep.

He checks off the boxes of:
1. High octane offensive mind.
2. Solid coaching tree.
3: Experience as a head coach.
4. Major Texas recruiting ties.
5. Was building the program he was at. His record was NOT stellar, but answer me thing, would Kiffin had taken the dumpster fire of SMU much last what he did? Norvell? Strong? I doubt any would’ve done much more than Morris.

Give them a couple days to calm down. By the start of the season next year, everyone will be on board.



Sadly there are some that will hope we do bad just so they can claim they were right about something.  Sad but true.

“We’re gonna be just fine” if I had a nickle for every time I heard that throughout the Bielema era.
I hated brettt. This is a great hire.

Frank Broyles was 5-4-1 at Missouri in his only year as a head coach when John Barnhill gave him the job so Broyles would stop pestering him. Arkansas in 1958 was a lot like it is in 2017. Maybe Morris sees what Broyles saw. Maybe Morris will be a visionary.

It could happen. 

I’ll add something to that. I was in Little Rock yesterday. At some point, Arkansas will reach it’s potential. Right now the entire state is low hanging fruit.

It’s going to take winning to get people on board! Myself included! I’m thinking we will be back in a bowl game by 2020!

I’ve seen zero hard evidence provided this is a great hire. Only thing I’ve seen positive is he was a good/great OC for Clemson.

You people baffle me that keep calling others stupid because they don’t like the hire. “You should just follow blindly and support no matter what, that’s what true hog fans do! If not, you’re dumb.”

No, we aren’t stupid. We’re tired of your worn out sales pitch telling us to follow blindly and support cause you want to spin a bad situation and kiss the PTB a**. I wish I could buy into your fairytale land but I’m sorry this sucks and I refuse to fall into this neurotic thought process. And no I’m nowhere close to stupid. Very educated in fact, so your theory is faulted. Name calling is how individuals have to debate when they have no other logical arguments to make. So stop with that crap.

What makes you so sure that this is a bad hire?

Hogville liked Bielema’s white pullover. I know they will love this one.

You inspired me:

I wasn't on when BB was hired...i'm assuming the ire was similar though.  We've made a change and that's good and with a good DC that will be even better!

Oh...it was, just like it ALWAYS is on every hire.  I was pedestrian with my displeasure of the BB hire, and wanted Malzahn.  I said some unflattering things, and got a few days to think about it.  But...I still gave BB a chance, because that's what you have to do as a Hog fan. 

To the people who may think not showing up to the games next season will send a message, like they did to get rid of BB, that's not going to happen.  What it will do though, is make us look like the most pathetic fan base in the history of college sports, because he deserves a chance.  HE'S COMING HERE TO WIN GAMES AND GIVE IT HIS ALL, AND SO ARE THE PLAYERS. 

If you're pissy about the PTB who hired him...that's fine, but as fans, we NEED to show up and support this team.  If not...our next hire will be someone straight from an Arkansas High School team.

It's very simple.  2/3 of the people here are stupid.  They don't study sports and have no comprehension of a head coaching job or an AD job.  They don't worry about facts...just what they hear on the radio.  They don't do the homework so they spout off stupid opinions they believe to be fact.  SMH

The one persistent fact I've noticed is that the vast majority of those posting in favor of Mr. Morris rationalize their support not on any objective measure of the coach but rather on attacking those who hold different views.

That is a strategy that carries with it the seeds of its own failure.

While I don't expect any more of Chad Morris than what his record shows I might have been inclined to give him some time to prove himself.

However as I suspect to continue to hear his supporters do nothing but attack those who don't support him I am confident I will find this too distracting to give him an objective evaluation.

Congratulations.
