is exactly what I was trying to get at a couple of weeks ago when I was asking Clay what other coaches were saying about the simplicity of our schemes. Other coaches in the SEC have come out and said how easy the Razorbacks were to prepare for. Maybe CCM and the staff thought that was all the players could execute, or maybe they just couldn’t coach and develop to a higher level. I do think Steve Caldwell is a heck of a football coach but not so much for the others that joined with CCM. CBL did a good job with the tight ends so I hope he is retained.
Randy Ramsey (Arkansas LB, 2014-18), after Saturday’s game
“These coaches talking like they have CTE. Only thing needed to be fix was that defense of scheme from 1857. How you do run the same defense year in and year out with no tweaks and you been in the same conference almost your whole coaching career.”
“This is beyond me. I’m speaking out Cause these people had me playing 3Tech on most calls last year. That should explain the coaching right there.”
I love Sosa… but I looked up his tackle stats for the season after I noticed what appeared to be a lack of effort Saturday, and I was shocked. I know bottling things up in the middle is his job, but he has recorded 2 tackles or less in 4 games… and he might be our best over-all talent on D.
Chavis should bear the brunt of the responsibility, but the DC can’t make tackles from the booth (or the sidelines).
It was obvious that WKU was not the least bit intimidated by Arkansas defense on Saturday. They went for 1st down on almost every 4th down play & knowing they would succeed against us.
Even though the coaches knew that their jobs were on the line, this team had nothing positive to show on Saturday. We have started almost every game this year totally flat & with no energy - no motivation from the coaching staff.
I am not surprised at comments about simpicity,I have said several times that our offense had to be the easiest in the SEC to figure out and Chavis sure has no secrets to share with anybody in the SEC…Glad this trainwreck is over but the mess they left behind will take any coach you can name 2-3 yrs to untangle.I am anxious for new beginnings and with a new fresh culture and ideas but we have so far to climb it will take yrs to do so and that is very to accept but we have no other choice.
