Venables is (probably not) coming to Arkansas
« on: December 07, 2017, 09:06:44 am »

My source is someone on the team.  Coach Morris told the team yesterday, "THE best defensive coordinator in the country is coming here."  Only one person that could be...  ;)

While that'd make the Chad Morris hire a lot more palatable, there's not even the slightest of chances of this happening.

He did say that. But did not name a name. I would assume  knowing his background it is Him. But who knows. I will not hold my breath.

Your source was higher than a Georgia pine when he told you this. It is yet another reason why "sources" are very overrated. Just look at all the bad info that Porktarian's and PRJ's sources gave them.

That would really raise a lot of eyebrows across the country, but it just sounds too good to be true....but there is always hope.

Guys I think it's possible. Thank you for the info. I thought it was riduculous but if we don't have a D.C. by next week it's probably going to happen.

He may very well have said it, but he may not be talking about Venables.


He sure ain't talking about Van Malone.

You are right--he did not name a name.  But we know who the best in the country is.  Lots of haters in this thread, but my info is legit.  Look at my post history and you'll see I've never brought any false info.  Just happen to know someone in this case.

Can we delete this thread? The only way - and it’s a pipe dream at that - that we get Venables is if we prevent this becoming a distraction to his current team.

If we have a completed staff sans a DC within the next few weeks, it should be clear we are waiting for someone. Venables spoke at length about a previous experience where there were rumors of a coach leaving and his team didn’t perform well and said it has disgusted/haunted him ever since. He vowed to never do that to his team moving forward.

Similarly both FOTH and a media member told us explicitly to quit talking about Venables for now and to wait patiently...

I realize that fans want to fan but if it's at all possible that he could come, it would probably be in our best interest to lay low and keep this out of the media.  The last thing we'd want is for some media type ask him pointedly whether he's leaving, during bowl season, forcing him to make a decision now if he hasn't already.

I'm as skeptical as the next person about Venables coming here and wont believe it until it happens, but I was just told this very thing this morning from someone that I definitely believe. Everything he's told me pertaining to the Hogs has been true. But he did say unless something drastically changes, that's who is to be believed our new DC will be. Although I am not going to get my hopes up with this one. Just cant see something so outrageous like this happening. We never get great news like this anyways.

Having enough sense to realize that Brent Venables is not leaving Clemson, of the ACC to move to a less secure job at Arkansas, in the rugged SEC-W doesn't make one a hater. Simply facing facts doesn't mean that we wouldn't like to see it happen, either. It just defies belief that this is even a possibility.

If this is true, then Morris is the best salesman in the country. Recruiting will be a walk in the park compared to this.

i think the chance he comes here is very real and isn't a pipe dream.  I mean all things considered i would think it is unlikely but if you listen to his first team meeting video you see where he clearly says he was asked why leave Watson and Clemson? he said WHY NOT he loves a challenge and it is very possible Venables does to.

What's to explain? He hopes that Morris doesn't view Todd Graham as "THE best defensive coordinator in the country", because apparently the OP wouldn't share that sentiment.

Sure you can but why would you want to? Fantasizing about the impossible is not healthy. Like listening to these "insider info" guys who tease you into thinking they know something even though their "info" and "sources" are ALWAYS wrong. Apparently they want you to realize they know people and are important.

He could be talking about Brent Venables or he could be talking about Marion Hobby! Venenables isnt provable but he is possible its a dream scenario but if not why not get Hobby coached with Brent has 7 years DC experience, a national championship ring, and NFL/ SEC experience

did i say i believe he is coming? no i said the chance is real that is all you can ask for.  Let me explain.  if i were to say that Nick Saban is coming to be DC at Arkansas that is stupid and not based in any sort of fact.  Now if i say Venables might come be DC assit. HC here at Arkansas that IS based in a very real possiblity but like anything it is probably unlikely.

My source is someone on the team.  Coach Morris told the team yesterday, "THE best defensive coordinator in the country is coming here."  Only one person that could be...  ;)

I doubt this is true, but it would certainly polish things up around here if so.
