I have mixed feelings about this one. I don’t think this disaster is his fault, it’s been coming for a long time.
That being said, that team just completely quit on him, like I have never seen on any level. They were playing with no pride, character, heart, or anything else. I’ve never seen a team just absolutely not care before, and that was the case for sure.
Again, I think Arkansas needs to think outside the box on the hiring of a new coach. No one worth anything that’s wanted by others is coming here. The state of Arkansas is not a state that produces athletes on a regular basis, and it’s hard to recruit football players there from other places. The few Arkansas produces usually go to Alabama or elsewhere. The fans have unreasonable expectations. The most Arkansas will ever be is an average also ran team, they will always be second or third fiddle in the SEC. It’s the Trump Republican philosophy, Alabama and LSU do great because Saban is an independent, but donates to Democrats in WV, and doesn’t like a Trump. And Ed Orgeron is a Democrat as well. Arkansas needs to quit hiring Republican coaches, they have been a disaster, and true athletes don’t want to play for them.
