After re-watching last year’s TCU game and breaking down each play, here’s why I think Arkansas will be successful against TCU again this year.
–We were dominant, but let them back in by stupid mistakes. Colton Jackson had a horrible game filled with mistakes that cost us plenty! Raulerson and Froholdt made a couple, too, but Froholdt made the least mistakes.
– Jared Collins and Khalia Hacket were out of position and made a few very costly mistakes.
–We NEVER set the edge with Tevin Beanum or Deatrich Wise. They almost always leaned too far inside. If Kenny Hill was flushed out, Wise, Johnson, Beanum and Ledbetter had no chance of catching him. We over-ran plays, looked slower and took bad angles, too.
–Hayden Johnson missed some key blocks.
–McTelvin Agim was the most effective lineman with his speed, but we just didn’t play him very much.
–Kody Walker was ineffective, yet we kept running him. Devwah barely played.
–McTelvin Agim will play more.
–Our DB’s though mostly unproven, are faster than last year.
–Our offensive line is better this year and I’m hoping Colton Jackson is better.
–The new 3-4 is a much better defense against TCU and because of speed I believe it will help us set the edge.
–Randy Ramsey and McTelvin Agim and Jared Cornelius all had a great game against TCU which usually pumps up a returning player.
–Whaley, Hayden, Williams and TJ Hammonds are a better force than Rawleigh and Kody! Hayden is especially suited for this type of defense.
–Kendrick Jackson provides better blocking than Hayden Johnson.
–TCU defensive end, Josh Carraway (who gave us fits) has left for the NFL.
WHAT WE WILL MISS
–Toby Baker’s ability to flip the field.
–Drew Morgan’s clutch catching ability over the middle.
–Jeremy Sprinkle’s two amazing catches.
