most of the kids we signed last year other than the arkansans, came here specifically because of morris and staff. think we would have gotten knox, tq, catalon etc. if it had just been because of the powerful arkansas football name? they were highly coveted by many schools. we will be raided if we fire morris. i am firmly convinced that it will be at least another 2 year set back of what we have seen the last 4 years.
we are young. no we haven’t shown the improvement we all wanted, but there is a good nucleus of young skilled folks. can craddock and morris figure out how to use them, debatable. what will the new defensive coordinator bring if we do indeed get one.
and the fire him yesterday crowd, where do we get the money? sure we’ve got some stockpiled but not a ton. former coach is going to sue us if he already hasn’t for his buyout. two coaches plus assistants costing us how many millions.
i wanted norvell on the last search, but dudley has stated there are personal problems there that the administration didn’t want any part of. he also coaches in a smaller conference. he hasn’t faced the bamas or lsus of the world week in week out.
and lets face it, no coach is going to turn us into a winner right away. dream all you want but it aint gonna happen right away. ticket sales might be up a tad for a year, but a new coach comes in and wins three games, same folks clamoring for morris’s head will be clamoring for the new coaches head.
i say give him another year with more of his players, and judge after that. we are a dumpster fire right now, do we throw gas on the flames?
