Alarming, yet par for the course
« on: September 15, 2017, 11:13:04 am »

Every day since Saturday there has been at least 1 article in the Democrat-Gazette about Bielema and the coaching staff reviewing game film from TCU contest more times than ever and with a renewed vigor and attention. The articles further discuss the questions (same questions Bielema said they would find answers to in Spring practice and in Fall "camp") that they are asking and going to find answers for.

The coaches think we are all idiots and will swallow hook, line, and sinker whatever bs they hand out. You know what? They are right. 99% of us will read these articles in a non-critical way with a predisposition to agreeing with the coaches. We think they will get these darn answers and after having had 9 months since the bowl game to figure it out, they will by God get it figured out in 2 weeks and wreck the Aggies a week from Saturday in Dallas. YEAH! HELLZ YEAH! LET'S GO! WOO PIG SOOIE!  PUT ME IN! I AM FIRED UP NOW! WE WILL WIN OUT!

Meanwhile, back in reality, these coaches do not have the answers. They have never had the answers. Bielema has a long list of games in 4 years that had inexplicable outcomes.  They are all making well into 6 figures, if not 7, and will say and do anything to buy more time and chances and keep their jobs.

They likely will not be improved or play any harder come the A&M game than they did in the TCU game. They had all of August to improve as well as the first game of the year and the following 9 days before the TCU game. Reality is, Bielema is a lower tier head coach and the program will get predictable results. Just as it has for past 4 years.

The Hogs will have multiple 3 and outs vs A&M just like it had vs TCU. The Hogs' D will be on the field too long and by the 4th Q, will one worn out. A&M will score 2 or 3 TD's in the 4th Q and will win going away. I'll predict something along the lines of A&M 34 and Hogs 14.

I'd be alarmed if they wrote an article saying the coaches had given up....please pay no attention.  That is standard sports speak

They're (Hogs) not going to lose to A & M.  A & M will actually finish below Ole Miss this season.

BTW, is anyone else under the impression that the SEC West is really waning now?

Writers gotta write something and coaches gotta say something...

I don't over analyze the media during the season.  It's just the same 10 articles cycled thru with the names and dates changed.  The one issue I do have with Arkansas media is they tend drink the kool aid in the preseason.  All the issues from last year's team is always fixed, heck it's the best part of the team now.

Speaking of Par for the course- your post is the definition........
I am a par player. The coaching staff is collective double bogey player. What I describe is reality. What they describe is basically fantasy.

If this were all fun and games, no one would care. I certainty would not. But it is a multi-million dollar business. The U of A is asking exorbitant prices from fans to be able to buy tickets. The U of A makes tens of millions every season from football. The coaching staff payroll is about $8-$9 million per year. Yet, the fanbase is supposed to be positive in the face of what is now a half-decade of absolute mediocrity. The fanbase is supposed to be quiet and supportive of the program, the players and the coaches and let these coaches do their job and make their millions and give the team a 10-22 SEC record over the past 4 years.

Ok.

I will turn over a new leaf.  I will  start us every week in an internet circle singing Kumbaya, My Lord and follow it up with singing of the U of A Alma Mater song and finish it off with the fight song.

Let us all be positive for the kids. The kids are our future, even if they do not get a college degree out of this. Let us give positive vibes to the coaching staff and all of the employees of the athletic dept and the university administration. And let us pray that the new executive suites, boxes and seats sell out. Further, I sure hope the U of A can continue raising ticket prices by an average of 6% a year like they have for the past 21 years. After all, that is how the program competes in the SEC and wins SEC championships.

I am calling the U of A after I type this and buy tickets to the remaining home games and will try to attend all of them and be a cheering and supportive fan. I am an Arkansan, I am an U of A alumnus, and I am a Razorback fan. Period.

These coaches are the worst I've seen at making in game adjustments. Costs us more games than imaginable. I will say, though, that they're better at game-to-game adjustments, especially after byes. Or at least have had a history of it here. But if A&M comes out hot and plays their best game of the year against us like they always do, then what are the guys gonna do in order to change something up during the game? I don't have faith they will, and don't have faith that these players are mentally strong enough to handle pressure.

Come on. You are just following what they did vs TCU. Look how well they played vs Fla A&M. This season is far from over. SEC season has not begun. When players' and coaches' backs are up against the wall (redneck mother), they become bold and tough. That is the Hog team that will play next Saturday. I look forward to a beat down by the Hogs. This should be a double-digit win for the Hogs. A&M has struggled on both defense and offense in their two games thus far.

I recommended that the coaches look past Florida A & M and start focusing on TCU the week before the A & M game.  I was scolded by everyone who explained to me that you never look past the upcoming game.

I was right and maybe I should have recommended to look past FAMU and TCU and start focusing on A  & M.  Hoginmemphis may be right as well with his prediction.  It would shock me if we come out and play well down there considering that we never have and I'd say we're worse this year than in any year since CBB's first year.

I have no idea if they will play harder, play smarter, or beat the Aggies.  I do agree that the part about (basically) "we're going to figure it all out now" is infuriating.  It's not like all these players and coaches showed up and met each other an hour before kickoff against TCU.  Why do we always have to figure out how to close the barn door after the cow is gone?

And...it's not just TCU and it's not just this year.  The last few years of Arkansas football have been opportunities lost that can never be regained.

+1000

Well said.  It's wasted opportunities like Toledo, Texas Tech, TCU, Missouri, Rutgers, Miss St... that end up being the difference between The Belk, Liberty or Texas Bowls and other bowls such as The Citrus (now the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl), Outback, Gator and Music City bowls.

If I was him I wouldn't say much...and I would save that energy for Sat. when he looks tired and lost.

He is great at interviews, but in a game situation where is all that bravado, energy, confidence, etc...? It's not there - he's a a blowhard that is in over his head.

He's got a great gig - 4 mil a year to be a *** politician and not put a good product on the field.

HiM is dead on.  Im tired of hearing the exact same mantra every week.  If Coach B can't inspire a team in WEEK 2 then he'll have real issure in Week 10 when everyone is banged up and the bowl chances look slim.  Ive never seen a team quit in 3 straight real games, I dont count FAMU.  When a coach loses a team, he rarely gets it back.

I don't want to hear we are studying film.  I want to hear "in the offseason we decided we were going to try to do things "X" way with "Y" players.  Obviously, that's not going to work so instead we are going to spend the rest of the season doing and developing "Z"."  In other words, admit your failures and say you will do something...anything...different from what seems to be the exact same crap that has cost us game after game the last 3 years.

Too many third downs, not enough gained on first downs, been that way for a while. Now third down conversions are near impossible, because the passing efficiency has collapsed.

Every day since Saturday there has been at least 1 article in the Democrat-Gazette about Bielema and the coaching staff reviewing game film from TCU contest more times than ever and with a renewed vigor and attention. The articles further discuss the questions (same questions Bielema said they would find answers to in Spring practice and in Fall "camp") that they are asking and going to find answers for.

The coaches think we are all idiots and will swallow hook, line, and sinker whatever bs they hand out. You know what? They are right. 99% of us will read these articles in a non-critical way with a predisposition to agreeing with the coaches. We think they will get these darn answers and after having had 9 months since the bowl game to figure it out, they will by God get it figured out in 2 weeks and wreck the Aggies a week from Saturday in Dallas. YEAH! HELLZ YEAH! LET'S GO! WOO PIG SOOIE!  PUT ME IN! I AM FIRED UP NOW! WE WILL WIN OUT!

Meanwhile, back in reality, these coaches do not have the answers. They have never had the answers. Bielema has a long list of games in 4 years that had inexplicable outcomes.  They are all making well into 6 figures, if not 7, and will say and do anything to buy more time and chances and keep their jobs.

They likely will not be improved or play any harder come the A&M game than they did in the TCU game. They had all of August to improve as well as the first game of the year and the following 9 days before the TCU game. Reality is, Bielema is a lower tier head coach and the program will get predictable results. Just as it has for past 4 years.

The Hogs will have multiple 3 and outs vs A&M just like it had vs TCU. The Hogs' D will be on the field too long and by the 4th Q, will one worn out. A&M will score 2 or 3 TD's in the 4th Q and will win going away. I'll predict something along the lines of A&M 34 and Hogs 14.

You literally started the thread saying A&M would win by 20...  ???
That was the old me. I'm not that person anymore.

Too many third downs, not enough gained on first downs, been that way for a while. Now third down conversions are near impossible, because the passing efficiency has collapsed.
Agree but Bielema needs time to get this corrected. I have to believe that in the next 2 or 3 seasons this will be rectified.

I'm sorry for my poor performance.  Y'all are paying me too much for the poor job that I'm doing.  I'll get it corrected or I will resign at the end of the year and you won't owe me a dime.
perfect!

So what would you say coach?

I would stop talking and I wouldn't get on twitter  and talk about how improved we looked in practice.. no one cares about practice, apparently our kicker hits 95% in practice, who cares  just shut your mouth for once and coach your team  to  finish a damn game like a  team with strength , character and guts.......

I like the way Bielema has this team exactly one-half young and one-half experienced. That way, we can be young every season, in perpetuity.

Literally nothing Bielema could say would be worth listening to at this point. We're way over-bullshat by that guy. Do something, then talk, you friggin' idiot.

Again- honest question: required to meet with media daily. What would YOU say?

People are pissed if you talk or not, so say what you are....
