He's a High School coach now. Call him home!!

I did some research the other day on Burns after posting that.  I didn't realize until then he was now coaching HS ball.  He's in his mid 50's so still young.  I would love to have him back at Arkansas.  That would be another way to infuse some original Razorback Blood back into the program.

Totally agree.  My point was one part of a larger problem.  Coaching and heart are two things that need to improve just as much or more so than just being intimidators in the defensive backfield.

One of the things Hamlin said the other day is our secondary goes backward when tackling, saying that should never, ever happen.  Heart and technique.

Ken should have checked with me before the season started. I saw this coming.

It's amazing what a couple of "Hamlins" will do for a defense.  Hamlin had that dog in him.  We need more dogs.

He sees what we see:

Pretty much everything I've been saying. Clint Stoerner be on point with his analysis as well. As a defense you have to make it clear that this is a dictatorship not a democracy. You're going to do what we want you to do.

Great article.

Thanks!
Yep, real good read coming from a former great Arkansas Razorback's perspective. If he sees and says it I believe it.

Yep, this makes me scream at the TV every time..."Go get em, what are you waiting on!" As a defense you have to close that space not the offensive player. Every inch you give is an inch he gains. Could be the difference between a 1st down or a 3 & out, a touchdown or a stop, a punt or a field goal attempt, a win or a loss. It kills me every time I see them do that.

That let's me know that they are scared.

Yeah, I agree. I think there's a great deal of heart and desire with the players on our team. And I'm trying not to put down any of our coaching staff, seriously. Because I have loved the Hogs all my life. As did my Dad his, and his Father did most of his.

But coaches have to be nose to the grindstone 24/7. Very hard to be the best and have a life outside of the football program.

Part of being a great coach is knowing what buttons to push to properly have your team prepared and motivated. I think Rhoades is a good Football coach. But I just wonder if his staff is knowledgeable and experienced enough to be coaching in the SEC. There's a reason most of the defensive staff weren't position coaches for a major college football program. Either they hadn't worked their way up and were inexperienced, or they just aren't good enough. Either way, the SEC shouldn't be on the job training. Not to the degree we have going.

Is that receiver's eye popping out of its socket due to that collision caused by Mr. Hamlin?
