  1. It's April. Signing day is seven months away. A lot will happen (I HOPE!!) between now and then.
  2. A home-run hire for sure and I love me some Vic. Top three coaches in the country is a stretch with zero titles, but his teams play hard and just grind other teams down with defense. It will be fun to see him go head-to-head with his mentor Gary Blair on the recruiting trail. I'm ready to see someone knock Mulkey down. I really, really liked Mulkey at one time. I've met and interviewed her and loved her candor. But the comments she made about the sexual assaults at Baylor and punching people who talked about Baylor in the throat soured me on her big-time. She tried to walk it back, but the damage was done with me and I cannot stand her. I got a chance to cover Vic and he's a great dude. Him, Blair and Arkansas coach Mike Neighbors are three of the best guys you'll ever meet, and all three are damn good coaches. Hook 'em.
  3. A little stunned by this. Not sure where CDC is going to find a new coach. Hope they shoot big.
  4. If figured he was an automatic to Arkansas.
  5. Aggy's top 2 recruits -- a kid who did not play this season after he was declared ineligible, and a kid who was sent home hours before a state championship game. Yep, sounds about right.
  6. Well, and if Arky actually has this hire correct, the Hogs should also be able to be more competitive against aggy than it has been, and even in Arky's poor state they have been competitive with aggy the past 2 years. So 5th is no guarantee. LOL.
  7. Happy for Rhett. I covered him when he was a QB in high school here in NW Arkansas. I thought he would have been a good fit for us as well. He had a parting of the ways with Malzahn, who is a control freak and had to go out and prove he could do the job on his own.
  8. So this "reporter" turned off the camera and put away the microphone, then interviewed and quoted the kid anyway? Putting away the camera and microphone generally means an off-the-record conversation not for publication. Yet this "reporter" did a full-on interview that he published. Nice. This is why recruiting "reporters" are often considered slimy, unethical schleps.
  9. I think Harrell can be a good OC, but there is a reason the Leach offense is called Air Raid. Too much passing and not enough emphasis on the run game. Hire Lashlee and you get the Malzahn offense. Hell, hire Kendall Briles and you get the Art Briles offense. Just kidding. Do. Not. Hire. Briles. I want an offense that spreads the defense out and uses the power run game. But Lashlee separated himself from Malzahn because Malzahn is a control freak and would not let Lashlee do the job he was hired to do. Herman might be the same way.
  10. I said this last week, too. Lashlee is from the Malzahn tree and the offense is based on a strong run game. Lashlee and Hand have a connection. Lashlee is the guy I want. Make it happen, Herman.
  11. Applewhite is rumored to be the new OC at Arkansas according to what I am hearing.
  12. As expected, Morris to Auburn as the OC. The second part of the package will be his son Chandler signing with Auburn.
  13. I covered Ash when he spent 1 year on Bret Bielema's staff at Arkansas in 2013. He's solid and would be terrific DC at Texas. He stayed one year at Arkansas and quickly hit the exit outta Fayetteville. On the OC search, I think there are better fits than Graham Harrell that would utilize the run game more, and if it were me, I'd be interviewing Rhett Lashley at SMU, who is part of the Malzahn tree. Malzahn has always built his offense around a power run game, using the spread to create space for the backs and QBs. With the RBs that we hopefully have next season, we need an OC who believes in run-first. Another plus is that Lashley has a relationship with Hand from their days at Auburn.
  14. Who expected regression. Hell, we were all expecting to challenge OU for the B12 championship. Two-year starter at QB, All-America WR, our RB added 20 pounds of muscle from last year. We need to hire Urban Meyer. If we want to win? Hire him. 3 natties speak for themself.
