1. Im overjoyed the John L era is over
2. He showed he is gutless by not going for the TD from the 1 and the 4th and 4.
BUT..... Smith was brought to Arkansas as a Big Baby sitter...a figure head coach. Everyone knew that PPetrino would call the offense and Haynes would call the defense. When either part sucked, Smith not the coordinators took the hit, which is right considering he was head coach, but I never thought it was all his fault. He didnt cause injuries, he didnt fumble any balls, throw interceptions, miss tackles or miss fgs.
Everyone will talk about and remember the two times today when Smith didnt go for it on 4th down, but no one is talking about the 13 points we left on the field with the fumble on the 2 yard line and two missed field goals. If we execute there, those decisions dont face Smith and those seniors leave on a winning note.
Arkansas dominated in every offensive category except the scoreboard, http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/boxscore?gid=201211230074
. Other than the goal line situation where I would have like to seen us pound the ball three times, I thought the play calling was ok today. The defense by far turned in their best performance.
So, I guess in short what im saying is...yeah, he is gutless, he called us Alabama and yeah im glad he is gone, but Jeff Long and the people who brought him here to be a "figure head" coach, got just that.
Now lets look forward...the dude is outta here.
