When the hosts of the Bo Mattingly Show are debating whether or not Arkansas would beat Arkansas State and there is disagreement on the matter. One host said ASU is better and Arkansas could not win the Sun Belt. What a pathetic commentary on the Arkansas program!
When the ASU coach is able to come to the LR Touchdown Club and make fun of the state of the Arkansas program and laughter ensues it goes viral with the national media.
Arkansas athletic administrators can weather a lot of things, but being made fun of by ASU in the Capitol City in front of the city’s business leaders and having statewide media questioning whether or not Arkansas would beat ASU is not one of them.
Lets play Arkansas State ten times and Arkansas will win ten times.
Anyone who takes anything like this seriously knows nothing or has an anti-CBB agenda. This is mostly the case.
I am losing faith like everyone else, buts lets be serious.
I can’t blame him though personally. His team is winning, he’s a young, up and comer who’s likely going to get a pretty decent gig soon. This helps get his name out there even more. Why not take a jab at a program that’s burning in flames right now?
I hate it, but he’s certainly got room to throw punches. We wouldn’t be in this position if Bret could do what his job pays him 4.5 m a year to do.
It is a sad state of affairs. But, Bo is gonna Bo. That’s why you saw him slip the knife in Bielema’s back with quickness.
His agenda is stirring the pot so he can get the most listeners and then the most advertisers or charge more for his advertising.
If that means trotting out the “would Arkansas beat Asu” stuff when Arkansas is God awful then he will do it in a heartbeat.
As for the Asu coaches, that’s what they’ve done for decades and it isn’t going to stop. They’re jealous haters. Always have been and always will be.
What they don’t know or care to realize is that by being that way they turn off a lot of people who might be casual supporters of their program.
And, of course people laughed. Have you read this board? Your posts? We and the people who go to those TD Club meetings are rabid fans and many of you all have spent months mocking the program.
Why would the venue (particularly since some central Arkansas ASU fans undoubtedly attended) be any different.
Lastly, it didn’t go viral. Something being Internet karaoke on some internet sports sites doesn’t make something viral. No one cares about our program or ASU’s, nationally.
But, I agree that it’s sad that this is where we are. It’s going to be a long few months full of giddy posts like this from you and others to go with all the ridiculious coaching search speculation and Malzahn posts.
I’ll be happy when they hire someone else. It will be refreshing to hear the constant drum beat stop for a few weeks.
