Not really SEC sized. Do they think they'll grow 4 inches and put on 30 lbs in the next 2-3 years??!!

Nepotism doesn't bring championships.

I'm with my fellow commenters. (Full disclosure: I have never coached college football but I have watched a lot of it.) Anyway, this coach has already had a couple of months to prove himself and he failed. Time to look for a new coach. Is God available?

Not a pig fan, but Morris pretty much came in behind the 8-ball for this season which is no fault of his, so he pretty much has to take what he can get at this point and just hope to be competitive in the few games this season.

A good strength coach can add 35 lb of muscle in the freshman year.

They are only sophomores with a pedigree and talent. Head coaches don't offer just because of parentage. Can't afford to waste a scholarship. So, they obviously see something...........

"Morris pretty much came in behind the 8-ball for this season "
.
How so? College coaches typically are hired in December, as Morris was.

@garya...so they saw something in Jerry Jones grandson? Right. Maybe his financial statement.

@Old Guard, I doubt they'd be able to pass a PED test if they put on 35 lbs. @Delta2, Shorty Jones' scholarship only cost Grandpa $10.65M!! What are they going to do with 9 QB's on the roster??!! I can't believe they let their best player (Gragg) walk away. @FreddyBry, Nick Satan might come to Arkansas for $10M a year!

"Jai had offers from Texas A&M, Baylor, Louisiana Tech, Bowling Green and Alabama A&M prior to the camp"
Gee. This guy seems to have garnered a pretty fair group of offers for a sophomore. Maybe real coaches see more than these keyboard coaches on here.
