Maybe we are reaching the point we have to accept our place as a middle tier program that may on occasion put a team together that can win the West
I have only a glimmer of hope left that Coach Morris can really do somthing special here because of his ability to evaluate, his personality on building relationships, his connections to a supplemental recuiting base, his maturity in the face of adversity - he may be able to make a proverbial “silk purse” out of this ragged sows ear.
Conservatively - I’m thinking we won’t know for sure until 2021 - that’s a dismal wait considering all the failure of years past
But if Coach Morris fails - The reputation of Arkansas being the place Coaches careers come to die could become an urban fact - greatly limiting the pool of coaches needed and Arkansas always looking for a “project coach”
no matter what - I see Arkansas continuing to have success as a regional program after all - there is no pro team to divert limited resources - so the Population Of Arkansas and the Alumni will continue to want information and products that promotes a nitch market
I’m thinking we are at a sentinel time -
For me I’m all in for Coach Morris success because I don’t see Arkansas recovering in a TV Sports market culture that feeds a Globalist fandom that only honors Wins, power and player personality over team work, great effort and regional identity.
I see Coach Morris as Arkansas last hope for national success
But Arkansas will survive no matter what because the people of Arkansas love the Razorbacks - they just may not be revelant outside of a corner of the SEC West If Coach Mortis fails
Dang I hate thinking this way
