I don’t post much at all but today I heard and read people talking about what seed they would want to be in the tournament. It seems just last week some fans wanted Mike fired.
I can not believe the way some of our hog fans are acting. I don’t believe fans enjoy when the hogs lose, but it is strange to me when this board blows up when we lose. I see it on twitter everyday, whether it’s Bo, Dudley, or someone else tweeting after a loss, fans just go crazy. I remember someone posting a poll on twitter after the LSU win, “Can the hogs make the NCAA tournament?” I read a response, “No, they don’t have any quality wins.” The same poll was released after South Carolina, “They only have one quality win.”
I’m usually good at keeping quiet around people that don’t think mike is a good coach, maybe that’s why I’m posting here.
I have posted before on the old hawgsillustrated board about this. I’m a young fan, and Mike has been the best coach I have seen coach for the razorbacks. I obviously know about the 90’s and how great we were, but that is long gone. We have the right guy coaching our basketball team.
Obviously I know a lot of fans aren’t this way, but I could not believe the booing and yelling at players/coaches I heard from some of the fans at the Vanderbilt game. Yes I know it’s frustrating, but is it okay to yell at players/coaches?
As a fan I feel it’s my job to support Mike and this team, if we were last in the SEC I would still be at every game. Yes, I let out some steam to my dad, but not on the coach or players. Never.
We are currently 19-7 with a lot of new players. Texas A&M was supposed to be great with the new guys coming and they were picked ahead of us. Georgia returned great players and they were also picked ahead of us. Where are they sitting right now?
Once again, I know a lot of fans aren’t this way. I just had to let off some steam. If we lose to ole miss, A&M, and every other game the rest of the season, I will still be inside Bud Walton rooting on the hogs as everyone else should be.
I’m the biggest Arkansas basketball fan I know, and I know we are headed in the right direction with Mike.
