    How about hearsay?  As to Taylor, I was like many who thought he was nothing more than a towel waving bagman at Auburn. All I can say is what involvement I've seen it him in Jonesboro has been exemplary. I have no idea about his coaching ability, or anything he's done at ASU, but the couple of times I've heard him speak to high school aged kids, he's had a good message.

  • Love it!  Beats Pepsi!

    Speaking of Pepsi (I know, off topic but among the changes I would like to see made) I understand wanting to make more money and I also understand certain companies buying their way onto the menu's that are available to attendee's of Razorback sporting events, but among the things that are within the control of the University, I'd like to see them be more concerned with catering to the "preferred menu desires" of the people who buy tickets and attend games.

    If folks prefer Coca Cola, give them what they want. If they want Coffee or Hot Chocolate, for goodness sakes you (the University) aren't rookies at this and it isn't your first rodeo, have enough on hand to serve everyone's purchasing needs throughout the entire game. You have surely tracked sales on all items long enough to know how much you need to last through 4 full quarters and serve everyone.

    Maybe they need to do a public survey during the spring to survey the menu desires of the purchasing public. I understand the dollars and cents thing, but these fans, these ticket holders, are Customers of the University and you want your Customer to be happy. Tailor the menu to what the public wants. Be good to your Customer. With Long gone, this might be the perfect public relations move to bring the University and the fans back together to a greater degree, regardless of the money. JMO

  • Let's talk about some of these other can't miss DC's for a minute.
    Steele gives up 27 to UCF and basically refuses to blitz, and this is with a month to prepare.
    Aranda gives up 15 in the 4th quarter playing prevent D.
    Grinch got his butt handed to him with a large helping "Thank you sir, may I have another."!!

    Guys, you simply have to face facts-- the game is now tailored for offense, PERIOD!
    The rules are setup for the passing game. Officials simply refuse to call penalties for linemen downfiled on RPO plays and receivers absolutely maul DB's on the little quick screens.

    As long as the rules are set-up this way the D will suffer. Saban saw this firsthand and adapted, Arkansas has hired a guy that will take advantage of these rules too.

    About the best that you can hope for is to create enough havoc to get a turnover and a couple of 3 and outs per half. Try to hold the opponent to less than your own O can score. If I saw anything today it was that holding back on D is just a slower death. If you give a good D1 quarterback time he WILL find the open guy.

    ATTACK! Make the QB uncomfortable and you just might get a bad pass, an interception, a sack on just a simple 3NOut. Yeah, you will give up the big play every now and then, but you do that anyway.

  • If Venables, I would think we should hear something soon. If Chavis, I would guess they are waiting until A&M finds another DC and release him which could be a while. CCM said he was hoping to have his coaches announced by Jan 1st. Seems to be delayed. Is there any connection between Caldwell and Taylor with CCM? Spoke with an ASwho supporter and he does not want Trooper to leave and says that he's a good man being talked about negatively based on false accusations.

    Only problem with the comments above is the two best teams in the country , IMO Alabama and Clemson, DO play defense.  And with Georgia, right at the end of the first half Kirby Smart, former DC, took over and changed the outcome WITH defense.

  • Chavis is a very good DC and if he does come to Hogs you will be happy. I know there's talk about the bowl game. But I wouldn't put much thought into a bowl game that doesn't matter, much less one where there's an interim and the players have checked out.

    Some will be happy, some won't.

    I'm not sure how I feel about it.  Some on here (including UU) seem to have a strong reaction to the potential of his hiring.  Others say "he was never charged with anything".  I'm not sure if there is substance to the dislike or not.  I do respect UU and do not find him to be a person who slings mud without significant reason.

    I guess we could say that Kirby Smart has lost control of his defense too? I mean, look at all those points scored on him with a lot better talent than Chavis had at A&M?

    The Rose Bowl was a good game but one that was a head scratcher for sure on OU's part. They squib to end the half, throwing a wheel route when you need 2 yards and not being nearly as aggressive in the 2nd half as they were in the 1st half.
    But at the end of the day (and what matters much more) Chavis is a very, very good DC and I fully expect him to do good things at Arkansas.

    The head scratcher was Georgia not playing better shut down defense against Oklahoma who they had to know, relied on the big chunk yardage plays to keep their offense moving. Now granted, Oklahoma was THE big play team in the country with a big play (plays in excess of a 10 yard gain) in every 1.8 offensive plays, but Georgia appeared to be playing more of a contain, though they did gain 5 Sacks, 9 TFL. Still, they let OU run all over them. Not at all what I expected of them.

    I thought Riley had them ready and hit UGA where they were vulnerable. They went right at the aggressive rush with short quick passes. That opened up the run game significantly. When UGA blitzed in that first half Mayfield was killing them. In the 2nd half OU tried to throw more down field and run between the tackles.
    Top to bottom UGA was the better team but Oklahoma err chokelahoma cropped their britches for sure.
