Consecutive bowl wins
« on: September 30, 2017, 10:43:47 am »

gameday just showed CBB and said he is the only coach in ark history to win back to back bowl games.   is that accurate that we've never had a coach win consecutive bowl games ?   would have never guessed that

Before the modern era our bowl record kinda sucked.  Back in the day, we played in a lot better bowls, Cotton, Orange, etc..   Now we play in bottom tier bowls were victories are a bit easier to accomplish such as the Texas Bowl.

Hogs have never had a 3 game bowl winning streak, only other time to win 2 bowl games in a row is '76 (broyles) and '78 (holtz).

This illustrates the misperception the fan base has about the historical success of the Razorbacks program.  It's not as prestigious as many would like to believe.

Supposedly the 2nd worst of all teams with a minimum of 15 bowl appearances.

You're so negative. Surely the Liberty Bowl is quite the achievement. LOL

This is true. Petrinos last year was a bowl win.  Then we followed that with 2 losing seasons then two bowl wins in a row.

Good grief, you live up to your handle.  I will add Hatfield and Nutt are mainly responsible for our horrid bowl record.

CBB actually owns 33% of our bowl wins since the late 70's, if my memory serves.

No. The '76 Arkansas team didn't go to a bowl. The '78 team played UCLA in a bowl game that ended in a tie.

Anyway, Arkansas has had to historically "play up" in their bowl games. Bielema has had the luxury of playing down because he loses games in the regular season that he should easily win, so the team gets matched up against bowl opponents that they are waaaaaaay better than. The 2014 and 2015 Texas and K-State teams, respectively, had 6 win regular seasons. They were barely bowl eligible.

Bielema should have been the first coach in Arkansas history to win 3 bowl games in a row but he didn't because of his patented Second Half Meltdowns™.
