Arkansas has had teams with lesser talent than this team. But they played their hearts out. They played with pride even when hopelessly overmatched. The lack of talent on the team is NOT Coach Morris's fault. But the lack of football smarts, basic fundamentals on both sides of the ball should have been addressed since day one. I know the saying about leading horses to water, but falling for the fake fair catch ploy? To be fair to the current coaching staff, this catastrophic season can and should be placed at the feet of CBB. He left the cupboard bare and the current crop of players lacking the fundamentals. But smarts, toughness, and above all PRIDE lays at the feet of the players and current coaching staff. I'm NOT calling for Morris's job. He should be given at least three to four years to fix the mess he inherited. As I stated in the header, is this the worst Razorback football team in the last fifty years? In my opinion, yes. The lack of talent and unfamiliarity of the system I understand. The lack of smarts, toughness and PRIDE, inexcusable. Once, putting on a Razorback jersey meant something. There are a lot of kids in this state that would crawl to Fayettville if offered a scholarship. Instead we have a bunch of overhyped and overrated players on this team that couldn't be on LSU's scout team. I hope this season is the darkness before the dawn. Only time will tell.
Well my first recollection of Razorback football only goes back to a fateful December night in 1969. I would turn 7 in a couple days so my father wanted to celebrate a Razorback victory and my upcoming birthday. Well neither happened that night. I did hear a phrase that night in the parking lot of Razorback stadium that I would hear uncountable times for the next 49 years, " Just wait till next year" followed by " we have 5 and 4 star athletes lined up for the next 10 seasons". Well we still don't have a National Championship and we are now as far from one as I could ever imagine. A decade ago if you had come to me and said in the 2018 season the Razorbacks would be looking at a Cleveland Brown endorsed season. I would asked how much had you been drinking. Well move over Brown's fan make room in the Dog Pound or in our case the Pig Sty. Next year we will get 'em!
Silverfox, I was referring to the spiral. I know when the season ends, I just hope the downward spiral ends before that! My 70+ year-old psyche can't take much more of this constant pounding. I'm running out of runway in which to see us get back to relevancy again...
That was a trying time for Broyles. I recall reading that he lost 30 lbs and asked his father to save him a job selling insurance. And, it's true that if these people were around and had their way, Broyles would have been fired.
The only "spirals" with which I am reasonably acquainted are "spiral notebooks" and "football pass spirals". I'm 73, so a "death spiral" may be in the offing for yours truly in the not-too-distant future.swinebeforepearls wrote: ↑Mon Sep 17, 2018 5:00 pmSilverfox, I was referring to the spiral.

I share your fervent hope - (along with that of many other Hogs fans, I'm sure) - that our losing spiral abates and attenuates THIS SEASON.
We simply HAVE to elevate our proficiency level. We represent the analogous "Elevator Football Program" of D1 Football. Our elevator has descended to the sub basement, - - and has been idled there for some time now, - - and the only direction in which we can go from here is "UP".
