    Arkansas seems to be the laughing stock of the Sec football this year.

    I do hope Mr. Smith is renting up there in Fayetteville, and a short-term lease at that ;-)

    Looks like the Razorbacks are going to be at the bottom of the SEC for a long time. Jeff Long acted hastily when he fired Bobby Petrino and now he's living with the consequences. None of that forgiveness or kindness for him. Perhaps he's never made a mistake in his life.

    Agree with strick9. This proves that you cannot go our and just hire any Johnson, Smith and Herring to coach. As for JLS, We will never forget your adage "Smile, Smile and the whole collge football world will laugh at you"
    Hear that "whooshing" sound in the background, that is the Arkansas football team and program headed to rock bottom
    On a brighter note the Arkansas softball team beat Marion Military Institute today 12-0. Hopefully the AD will schedule them in football next year, How about a home game in Laredo, Texas.

    The problem was not FIRING Petrino, it was HIRING Petrino.

    Since Petrino cared nothing about defense I'm not certain we would be doing much better with him coaching. We also miss Joe Adams and company a lot more than we might have anticipated. This whole episode will take a minimum of three years to get past. We are obviously short on talent and the interim coaching staff can't be expected to restock. Just remember, Petrino would never have beaten Alabama due to his lack of respect for defense. Sooo, lets find a real coach and get the rebuilding process started.

    Or the guys can take on Bentonville or Springdale....seems to be the caliber of play most suited to their efforts. As for bowl games, lookout, Toilet Bowl here we come.

    Hey Jake - At this point the Toilet Bowl looks pretty good........ This season is over. Call in the dogs, p on the fire, it's time to come to grips with reality. The talent on defense is on par with UCA. Except for Tyler Wilson and Cobi Hamilton there is nobody who is a legitimate SEC player on offense. Hog fans drank the Kool-Aid poured by Arkansas' sycophantic sports media. The only thing to salvage now is recruiting. What can be done to help recruiting? Maintaining the status quo is not the answer. Drastic times call for drastic measures. If Jeff Long won't pull the trigger on John L. Smith, then fire Jeff Long. Ken Hatfield lives in Rogers. Hatfield knows how to deal with the media and make a "living room" pitch to recruits. This season is over. Let's do what is best for the future.

    What an embarrassing performance. You have to go back 60 years to the Otis Douglas years to the last time Arkansas' football program was such a mess. It's one thing to get stomped by #1 Alabama but to get stomped worse by Texas A&M - pitiful. Coaches and players both to blame. *** And when are you knotheads going to get over Petrino? HE LIED TO HIS BOSS!! HE HIRED HIS MISTRESS!! Long had no choice but to fire him. Have you no concept of ethics at all?
