to both LSU and Missouri. I hardly think 3-9 is an improvement over last years 2-10 and he should be fired. Especially the way we have lost our conference games literally getting blown off the field even at home!!
I agree 100%
I think that’s an almost universal feeling among fans.
I wished the the BOTs and the AD would listen to average fan
3-9 and 2-10 both fall below Morris’s self imposed standard for Arkansas. The article below is from after the 2018 season finale. He doubles down on his “ 4-8 is “unacceptable” comments from prior to the 2018 season and says better days are coming.
Still waiting coach.
I am sure glad that they don’t!
Why? The average fan is ignorant of most things related to Razorback athletics. Some on this board prove that.
You are correct. They should make whatever decision they want without our input and only charge us ticket prices and ask for donations after a win. I like that.
Well, yes & no. Certainly the BOT needs to use its own best judgment & not that of fans who might not know all the things the board knows. However, when fans as a group start dropping out of the program & as a whole vote with their feet (or pocketbooks), the board better listen to them. I know fans can be terribly unreasonable & their expectations unrealistic, but it’s not unreasonable to expect a coach to improve the product for terrible to slightly less terrible after two years.
Morris seems like a wonderful man. He didn’t want to fail. I didn’t want him to fail. I still wish we could go 3-0 in the last three games. Heck, I’d give him the benefit of the doubt if we just wins 2 of the 3. But if we finish 2-10 or 3-9, somebody needs to explain to me how we can expect better next year. I know he inherited a mess, so I was prepared for a 4-8 record, but I expected to be more competitive in our losses & not to lose to SJS or get blown out by a bad MSU team.
That said, I know there are financial considerations & other things I don’t know, but one thing I do know is that fan support is awful & that could cost us more than a buyout.
