He's Louisville's problem now, not ours so let them worry about him.

That clown got us to the Sugar Bowl( a height we have yet to see again and the only BCS bowl game we played in while it was around) and back to back 10+ seasons.  He is a screw-up but damn it felt good to tune in on Saturdays knowing we had a chance against any team.

I feel that way now. I feel Bret gives us a better chance to win than Bobby did. At least Bret knows he needs a defense.

"That could be true, but Petrino's account has long had lots of very interesting follows that are highly unusual for public figures associated with academia, so to speak."

Such as?

Most of those "scandals" are very light in the scandalous department btw.

I'm starting to think that this was a product of the competition more than not. The way it is now, almost every one of our conference opponents could contend for any other conference's championship. This was very much not the case in the early '10s.

We would never have gotten CBB if he hadn't screwed up.

For the last 2 years we have had a chance against any team we line up against and I doubt this year will be any different. I feel bad for people that think winning is the only thing that matters, I really do.

I have moved on. I think CBB is doing well, and the team should be quite good this year.

I don't think it is necessary to trash Petrino and everything he did -- obviously, he made mistakes. Louisville could be quite good this year. They are likely to be among the best ACC teams.

I see Bobby as more of a tragic figure than an evil one.

Hopefully, CBB will win big this year and everyone will be able to move on.

I'm thankful for the success he brought us.  Hopefully we reach that level again soon.

I never felt we had a chance against any team. With Bielema, I do.

I knew we'd still have people defending Petrino, and I find it disgusting.

You never felt we had a chance against any team in '10 and '11?

Yeah it sucked winning 10 or 11 games a year and finishing in the top 5, way better now that we go 7-6 and play in the Liberty Bowl.

I didn't against Alabama and LSU in 2011. Simply because I knew the way Petrino's teams are, we couldn't handle how they played us.

We won ten games in 2006 under HDN, should we be hailing him as well?

We went 7-5 and finished 8-5 last season.  7-6 was the finish after the Texas Bowl in 2014.

Petrino lovers - "Yeah I loved winning going 10-3 and 11-2 and finishing in the top five."


Rebuttal - The dark days of our football program were a direct response to Petrino and his lack of recruiting the right way. Bielema's main struggle was having to recruit our way out of the problems that Petrino left us, which was not having enough talent and players to compete at a high level that we expect at Arkansas.

Petrino really did come aboard as Arkansas HC in a perfect kind of way where Arkansas HS talent was concerned, that paid off. He landed Mallett and Wilson, who both grew up Arkansas fans, in Arkansas, and really wanted to play there, along with all the receiver talent from places like Warren.

Even in RB talent, he had Dennis Johnson who wanted badly to play for Arkansas, and managed to get Green to transfer in, as well as sign Wingo And Knile  Davis too.

Much of the out of state recruiting he did was because of his record and offense he was going to bring in, but the talent in the state in HS football was really good back then.

Mallett never would have gone to Michigan had Butt shown very real interest from the beginning. The situation at Arkansas at the time was a big mess and Mallett knew it. So did Dennis Johnson. He almost went to OU.

This excuse for Bret is laughable as always.  The players Petrino recruits and signs thrive in his system. He can adapt with other coaches players he inherits. See Casey D transformation.

Its sad that when the current program is mediocre people have to go back and blame a coach that hasnt been here for years.

In three more years when the program is exactly like it is now will that be Petrino's fault as well, or will we finally start pointing fingers at Bret and Jeff Long?

How long can you blame Petrino? You tell me.

So what do you think of Enos? A coach the belittled CBB hired.  How did he do with BA in his first year? Ya do know Enos didn't recruit him. He inherited every one of those players last year. This year too for that matter with a few exceptions. And people, gurus, experts, talking heads, fans are predicting any where from 7-5 to 10-2 for the most part.  Oh there are a few, like you, who think we wont do anything this year.  Point is, this is a rebuilding year and still they predict this record.  Think I will give CBB a chance before I proclaim him a failure. If a monkey with a whistle can get us to the SECCG I am fairly certain CBB can.  Heck you prolly could giving the monkey's IQ vs any poster on this site. By seasons end the wheels will have finally come off the gus bus, Sumlin will prolly be gone from aTm, and even Less maybe gone from LSwho. Ole Piss may or may not get hammered but Freeze will start to feel the pressure to win "now". Even MsSt maybe in the hunt for a coach depending on how far they fall without Dak. Stability is a big key in CFB and seems to me the only two teams that are truly stable is Bama and Hogs.

If in 3 years 8 wins are the most we have seen under bielema, I'll expect changes to be made in the program.

Personally, I'm expecting big things from this program over the next 2 years. Don't think we are quite there this year. But next year and 2018, I fully expect very big and special stuff from this football program.

I loved having Petrino, but I am happy his is now someone else's problem.  It is like dating the town's trashy girl, it is fun for a little bit, but you don't want to marry her.
