Dude...seriously.   You post how much you dislike Chavis in every thread.  This thread makes ZERO reference to him coming to Arkansas, yet you still feel compelled to maintain your negative mantra.  In fact, this thread is a classy post by his son.

We get it.. You don't want him here, but at least try to keep your anti-Chavis at Arkansas in threads that are actually related to him coming here.

Okay man of genius status who would you recommend that is actually realistic ??? Venables, while virtually everyone's "wet dream", was never a legitimate option. The guy out at WSU had already been scooped up by tOSU and so the number of candidates seemed to be steadily shrinking. So again I ask.....who were you advocating and why ??? Or in the end are you just bitching just to be doing so ::)

Chavis is probably better than anyone we've ever had.
It's not like Arkansas has EVER been a destination job for top DC's.
I'll be surprised if we aren't a much improved defense under Chavis.

We have had some decent defensive coordinators at times.  Probably the last really top notch DC we had (for his day) was Joe Lee Dunn or maybe go back to Goldsmith.  Since then, Willie Robinson is the best we have had if you really look at what his defense did in relation to offensive scheme.  John Chavis is head and shoulders above any DC we have hired since the 70’s. 

Now, he still has to go out there and prove the fire still burns but Saban at 66 still has plenty of fire so I think we are going to see immediate improvement game one over the absolute cluster we have observed for three years now.  After that, I expect we will improve gradually and organically as the players learn the system and more talent is infused over the next three seasons. 

We have been darn near worst in the country in many defensive statistics.  Even an improvement to the mid-60’s will look like we are the second coming of the Steel Curtain compared to the stinking pile of feces we have been seeing.  If he elevates us to a top 20 or top 30 position while Morris elevates us to a top 20 offense, we’ll be back to where Petrino was and be able to expect a floor of 7 wins (instead of having to be thrilled with that like the $15 million dollar man was). 

From that position, recruiting and stars aligning can give you a legitimate shot at the throne every 5 years or so.  I don’t expect us to be a shut down defense in this era of offense but competent and aggressive is easily within reach and the wins will follow.

so, 2015 didnt happen, right? Top 10 defense in the whole damn country? Asking for a friend b/c I think Smith sucked, or Bert ruined him, or whatever. Premise is still correct, though, and I'd go back even further to Jimmy Johnson or Monte Kiffin as the last DC on Chavis' level. IE, we just hired a future Hall-o-Fame , 2x National Title winning DC.

For the record, I believe CJC is Chavis' son.  He's an attorney in Knoxville and he's active on twitter.  Quite entertaining, actually.

This entire thread is about CJC and I'm not sure some realize that, so I figured it was worth mentioning.
