Our tailgate area is usually bustling and crowded, adults having fun, kids throwing footballs, a few dogs running around making friends and getting food. Yesterday it was deserted. Literally 3 tents had anyone at all. We are tent 52, and only had 6 people, no tv, no ice chests or food laid out. Friends brought bloodies, I brought chic filA. the other 9 or so tents were completetly deserted.
Driving in, the traffic was very light. The Chic Fil A folks were commenting how slow business was, for a game day.
In the stadium, the south end zone club area for concessions was deserted. we walked up for hot dogs and pops with NO wait. my buddy got a beer from the barbq place with NO wait. No wait for bathroom. most seats were empty, I video’d it for posterity sake. The few of us who were there were joking about getting down 17-0 before we started playing. at theINT, and subsequent score, people were just chuckling. several of us were happy for Ty. He’s a lot more Arkansas than most of our coaching staff.
we sure cheered for Rakeem’s runs, but there was literally NOTHING else to cheer about, until half time when that awesome Baton twirler lady came out and was awesome as always. wish our team played as well as she twirls.
Anyway, had fun on a beautiful day, Catfish hole Friday and Cheers on the square after the game, time with my son, then the twins and I got back to LR in time to watch John Wick 3.
As you all know, it could not be more clear that we need a new coaching staff. to be so completely out-coached by San Jose state and WKU, to have Ty struggle so much with our “system” and thrive so much with theirs…it is just black and white.
Contrast it with Muss-that guy shows up and IMMEDIATELY starts recruiting and coaching and our basketball team is in mid-season form on the first game. Clearly coaching is the key to winning.
I’m soooo glad that I’m not Hunter Yuracheck, as I have no idea who to hire, and man, is it an important hire.
