More praise coming on ESPNU today

On College Sports today, I didn’t catch the analyst name but he had Arkansas ranked 15th based on teams played and W/L record with an * to the “loss” to Auburn. He also said you can’t necessarily say they are playing over their heads because he ranked classes going back four years and had Arkansas ranked 25th in recruiting classes. He was saying they have the talent to compete.

Refreshing to want to hear Arkansas name mentioned on national radio.

Of all the negativity expressed toward the last coaching staff, they didn’t leave the program without talent.

They just didn’t coach the talent they had and didn’t keep the kids believing in themselves.

The last staff couldn’t Lead! If you can’t lead and motivate you have nothing. Coach Pitman hired a staff that can flat out coach and they teach the players and do their job! Talent takes you only so far. Heart and want too can carry you! Our hogs have both heart and want too!

CCM’s energy was refreshing after CBB super laid back attitude. And while CCM did get some talent in the doors, CSP is going to take it up another level or two.

It seems that Morris’ recruiting got us back into Texas, which was sorely needed. I’m not entirely sure that all of his recruits were what Pittman needs. Pittman, on the other hand, seems to be able to recruit anywhere. But what is critical is his looking to Arkansas and the immediate area. The other piece is that Sam doesn’t care who recruited the players, nor whether they were recruits or walk-ons.
It seems that he is hiring coaches who can coach AND recruit.
