It was the same during several of Houston’s years. And even Hatfield’s. Those offenses were very effective…but not “sexy.” Many fans don’t look at the numbers. The just like seeing an offense they perceive as “wide-open.” Never mind the fact that Eno’s actual schemes are very similar to Petrino’s.
And I am not convinced Bret is gone just yet. This board seems to have decided that he is. But if we manage to win 6…and maybe even 5…I say he gets another year.
Yep. He got too smart for his own good. Thought he could hire an assistant to a pro OL coach, a guy that could teach pro OL technique; that would improve our OL technique, and attract top OL recruits. Anderson may be able to teach individual technique, but he cannot build a cohesive top-tier OL unit.
How quickly people forget how potent our offense was just two years ago. I prefer a pro style offense over a spread offense any day. A good pro style is harder to defend than a wide open spread. Give me a defense and pro style offense any day.
Arkansas lost three linemen, Brandon Allen, Alex Collins and Hunter Henry off that offense, and players like Drew Morgan and Dan Skipper have left since. It hasn’t been able to replicate their production at almost any of the positions.
