Something I’ve never understood since Houston was run out of town - There have been and continues to be references of how he did us wrong by jumping to Ole Miss and we’ve all seen the character assassination he’s taken over time. The hatred towards this man has been very uncharacteristic of Arkansas people and the Razorback family.
He made a couple of unwise decisions but don’t we all? By the time 2007 rolled around, Razorback Nation was so divided that there was a constant barrage of negativity towards him including the infamous flyovers during pregames and full page advertising in the Dem-Gazette demanding his removal. So when November was winding down after an 8 win season, he left. Plain and simple. Who among us would have done different? He had a family with children still in school, the Nutts felt unwanted and it was obviously time to leave. In the meantime, he’s 50 years old and had a chance to continue his career at another school and make a nice living. I would have done the same thing.
Back to the point, Houston was basically run out of town and had to leave the job he loved due to a group of people who were bound and determined for him to be fired or leave the program. He gave them what they wanted and folks continue to bash him as a traitor for going to Ole Miss. Doesn’t make sense to me.
