I'm on the fence for this year so far. Saturday will determine which way I go in my attitude and hope for the teams immediate future. I was optimistic about this year too. Some of the problems we've seen on offense I expected, especially at receiver, losing what we did. But I had hoped KA would be as good an OL coach as bielema was saying he is and our run game would be dominant to make up for some of the inexperience at receiver.

Results aren't encouraging so far. But we will see how they do Saturday. Defense we saw some improvement from last year. Need more. And this team needs the attitude to play as hard as they can to the last snap. Play 4 quarters of football.

Did you see what Denver did to Dallas this weekend? They stacked the box and forced Dak to beat them with the pass. Well he couldn't because Denver has the best secondary in the NFL. TCU stacked the box and forced us to beat them with the pass, but we lost too much in our passing game to do it. It is an effective strat and I bet aTm tries to do the same thing. It causes fans to question a good running game which is silly.

So say they get back from Auburn the day after the play(Sept. 23), they don't go back on the road until November 16 or 17? Wow!

Did Arkansas just low key announce that they're not playing in LR next season, or is that announced at a later time?

I like the OOC schedule.  No P5, but that's not Long's fault.  Tulsa and North Texas share some history with us and generate regional interest.  EIU is a one of the better FCS programs.  CSU has a beautiful new stadium, and the aspens start to turn in early September.  Got to be nicer to rice here and hope I can hitch a ride on the King Air to the cj-sez kegger.

CBB has been gifted a golden opportunity to win 8 games next season.

Do you know of some other FBS teams that will not require a return home game?

What's wrong with playing the return home game?

Lost revenue.  Home games net millions in revenue.  You also lose money when you have to travel.

You pay FCS ball clubs to play you so you don't have to lose a home game via a return game.

I do like playing Tulsa.  Descent regional opponent.  I'd like to see us start playing SMU now and then also.  Tulane would be a good one.
Havent you been paying attention around here? We want no part of SMU.  They'd beat the socks off us according to some.

Near CSU is the Cambria hotel..bit pricey. Candlewood is more economical. It has a crazy name, but the Gilded Goat Brewing Company is quite good. The Drunken Monkey in old town Ft Collins is a great bar. If you like BBQ, try Nordy's in Loveland..southeast of FC. If you like seafood, try Fish in old town on Oak Street. There is a rather good Cajun place as well...the Lost Cajun.

Thank you, great ideas!

This! Arkansas does not need to play more than one non-conference road game every 2 years. The Hogs already give up a conference home game every 2 years by playing in Dallas.

That schedule is tailor made for a 9 win season. It hasn't looked less bumpy in years! Too bad we'll be stuck with a lame duck coach while breaking in a new QB.
