Explain this obsession with Butch Davis.
« on: October 28, 2005, 02:11:57 pm »

He took 5 years to win at Miami and got ran out of Cleveland on a rail, but on Hogville, he is the second coming of Lombardi. Is it just because he isn't HDN or has there been something I've missed that would lead us to believe he could come in set the world on fire?

Miami lost over 30 scholarships and he turned them around.

Butch is a proven winner in college coaching.

Houston Nutt is not and was not when we hired him to begin with.

Obviously something you missed.  Go back and study and a little college football history and specifically Miami from the early 90s to when BD took over to the couple of years after he left and see what kind of job of rebuilding their program he did.

No attitudes were out of line.  We just have and seen all the evidence we need to see.  Check the record at Miami, Dallas, and then see what you think of him.  Hell Google the guy and see what reporters are saying.

I checked the record at Miami, He was 40-19 after 5 years. That why I asked the question. I didn't realize he had 30 schollies cut, my mistake. I always thought you asked questions to get answers.

And they lost one game the two seasons after he left under the "Maintainer" Coker.  Also, look at the draft picks and see his talent eval ability.  I know, its not hard to recruit to Miami.  But the list is impressive: Portis, Gore, McGahee, Shockey, Sean Taylor...

For Arkansas to compete, it's vital that the kids we recruit are coached up.  We are never going to be overrun with 4 and 5 star players, so it’s vital our coaches do a damn good job evaluating players.  Since Davis left Miami, it could be argued that their talent level has dropped.  I've not done any research, but I'd be willing to bet that the number of 4 and 5 star recruits they currently sign is likely on par with the ratings that Butch brought in.  If the level of talent has indeed dropped at Miami, one could conclude that compared to Davis, the current regime isn't doing as good evaluating talent.  The question then becomes, can Davis do a good job evaluating the 3 star players as opposed to the 4 and 5 star recruits?

This has been argued a million times....and some of you still don't get it.  Miami and Arkansas is like comparing apples and oranges.  Miami is in one of the most fertile recruiting areas in the US, while Arkansas produces 2 or 3 major D1 prospects.  Even in Miami's down years they could still bring in great athletes.  Comparing Nutt's record here and Butch's record there means nothing.  Larry Coker won a national championship there in his first year...do you think that was b/c of coaching??  And don't start saying, "Well Butch Davis recruited those players..."  b/c the University of Miami name is a recruiting tool in itself.  Put Nutt at that school, he would pull the same recruits, if not better, b/c that is one of his biggest strengths.  He can somehow convince a 18 yr old kid to leave his state and play for Arkansas..that in itself is a huge task.

Yeah, Miami was a real powerhouse before Schnellenberger and Jommy Johnson got there, please in the 60s 70s and early 80s we would have spanked that ass so don't tell Miami recruits itself, if it did why don't they win the national championship every year? Iguess no one ever tells the canes no. Face Butch Davis is a big name, a name alot of these kids will listen to because he's coached in the league.

You are kidding me right...???  You need to check your facts before you post and look like an idiot.  Miami's records in the early 80's:  1980  9-3, 1981  9-2, 1983  7-4, 1983  11-1 (national champs), 1984  8-5, 1985  10-2.  Yeah, they were real terrible durning that time.

THe obsession with Davis is that a actual bonfide NAME coach might consider coming here.  Thats why all the hoopla about him.  And face it, when was the last time a name guy ( and I mean a name guy at the time, so no TT stuff please 0 was interested in coming here?  Maybe Jimmy Johnson, but I have doubts as to whether he would have left Dallas after 1 year to come here. 

Dont think I am right, the ask those who want Davis or just want HDN gone, other than Butch lets have one NAME guy that is either publicly or privatly showing interst in this job.  Come on, you guys all have sources, lets hear the NAMES.

You are correct.  He left the year before they won 23 straight before the phantom interference call cost them 2 straight Nat'l Ch.  Just like Ken Hatfield has no responsibility for that 3-8 team we had in 1990 that couldn't play within 4 TD's of most of the SWC.  Way to analyze things and see the correct answer.

Let me try to understand you Logic....IF Butch coaches 2006 or 2007 HOGS to 9-2/10-1 record, its all because of Houston Nutt's recruiting & coaching.......I'm guessing that is what you would love to see happen -- 9-2/10-1 under Butch Davis.

Good read, and I think it would apply if he had been here four years instead of eight. Or at the very least he seemed to be going forward instead of backward. We have done some excellent recruiting in the last couple of years at RB and a few other spots, but we still do not recruit to our needs as well as we need to. I do not see this changing. If I did, I would be beside TulsaHawg and hogsanity in defending him. I just think he was brought in too early in his career or he maybe just doesn't have it a this level. Either way I wish him the best as a person, he just does not inspire me to see him as a successful coach a this level.

I heard on Press Row this morning that HDN is putting signs up in the locker room.  Something like "Win in November And They Will Remember."  Is anyone else tired of the abundance of cheerleading and the lack of substance?  All icing no cake.

OK, let me unconfuse you. He lost four games in his fifth year and went 5-6 his third season because Miami was  hit with the worst sanctions since SMU and not given the death penalty. He had 31 total scholarships to give out over a three-year period. Unlike HDN, Butch had a real cloud to deal with. But, of course, it's so easy to walk out the door and recruit football players in Dade County ...
Butch went 9-3 his first two seasons. He left the cupboard completely filled for Larry Coker to win the national championship.
Have you ever met Butch and/or talked football with him? Same questions about Nutt, have you met him and/or talked football with him? You'd see a major difference between the two if you did and you wouldn't be asking the question what's the obsession with Butch Davis. The guy wants to have this job. He's good enough to do something with it.

I personally believe that butch davis could do what HDN hasn't been able to.  In 1998, supposedly one of the greatest talent laden classes in the past 15-20 years, he was 2 GAMES OVER .500.  He has never won more than 9 games with 3 of arguably the most talented classes in 20 yrs.  I personally believe that another coach would not have chioked in either of those 3 years like Nutt.

This has been argued a million times....and some of you still don't get it. Miami and Arkansas is like comparing apples and oranges. Miami is in one of the most fertile recruiting areas in the US, while Arkansas produces 2 or 3 major D1 prospects. Even in Miami's down years they could still bring in great athletes. Comparing Nutt's record here and Butch's record there means nothing. Larry Coker won a national championship there in his first year...do you think that was b/c of coaching?? And don't start saying, "Well Butch Davis recruited those players..." b/c the University of Miami name is a recruiting tool in itself. Put Nutt at that school, he would pull the same recruits, if not better, b/c that is one of his biggest strengths. He can somehow convince a 18 yr old kid to leave his state and play for Arkansas..that in itself is a huge task.

You would see a complete turnaround on the field and a lot more excitement.  Butch Davis is a very well organized and intelligent football coach.  Watch that NFL show on Direct TV or Dish, NFL Playbook.  You would know thru his analysis that there is no comparison between the two.

I think they both have a strong committment to winning, except Butch has no illusions that an "ego" belongs anywhere near the offensive playbook or gameday.  Sometimes you can toot your own horn, but not so brash and brazen to the tune that you will not allow the playcalls to be determined by another coach on staff.  Oh, you will let them confuse you, bother you on the sidelines with suggestions and let the "group" come up with a gameplan, but on gameday, I have to run the show, until we call a timeout.

Butch Davis can and will turn this program around!

I was asking a serious question. I'm not really sure why everyone on here has to be a smart ass when they reply.
 The info was helpful, the attitudes sucked.

That just about captures it!

He took 5 years to win at Miami and got ran out of Cleveland on a rail, but on Hogville, he is the second coming of Lombardi. Is it just because he isn't HAN or has there been something I've missed that would lead us to believe he could come in set the world on fire?

He took five years to win at Miami? what the hell do you mean? You mean it took him five years to finally win ALL BUT ONE GAME? If only Nut ts could do that.
He lost 4 games in his 5Th year...that's what the hell I meant. 11-1 was in the sixth year. Whats confusing about that?


OK, let me unconfused you. He lost four games in his fifth year and went 5-6 his third season because Miami was  hit with the worst sanctions since SUM and not given the death penalty. He had 31 total scholarships to give out over a three-year period. Unlike HAN, Butch had a real cloud to deal with. But, of course, it's so easy to walk out the door and recruit football players in Dad County ...
Butch went 9-3 his first two seasons. He left the cupboard completely filled for Larry Cooker to win the national championship.
Have you ever met Butch and/or talked football with him? Same questions about Nutty, have you met him and/or talked football with him? You'd see a major difference between the two if you did and you wouldn't be asking the question what's the obsession with Butch Davis. The guy wants to have this job. He's good enough to do something with it.
Once again, Mr. Administrator. That's why i was asking the question. I have no problem with your answers...I'm not arguing with you...I wasn't knocking Davis...I have nothing against him. As far as I know he might be the second coming of Lombardi. I just hadn't seen anything that blew me away, but admittedly, I didn't know much about the guy. That's why I asked. I stated what my perception was and asking if there was something I wasn't seeing...Why does that offend you so much? Do you not like it that I ask questions instead of falling in line with rest of the board just because its the thing to do. If so, tell me now and I'll find another board. Otherwise back off.

Butch Davis is a Dapper Dan man while Houston is clearly FOP material.

Have to say it...

This is post of the year material.
