I really hope we can hold on to Briles and Stepp for 2-3 seasons. They could really do some damage together on the field and in recruiting.

If Briles can get the offense to monster levels, would he be considered for the head coaching job when Sam is done? Let's say the next three years?

You basically need to pay Briles big money and basically name him the coach in waiting. Let Sam rebuild the team completely and really get recruiting rolling, then hand it off to Briles for the foreseeable future. It may take 6 or 7 years or more. It also depends on how long Sam wants to coach.

I don't care if we have to pay Briles $2M per year... You gotta heep him as long as you can.

Art Briles I always thought would have been the best fit at Arkansas back when Bert was hired. It makes too much sense.

Cart before the horse.

While Briles is a good OC and a young coach with a seamingly bright future, he isn't far enough removed from the Baylor scandal and has the last name that carries the stigma associated that will keep big programs away for several more years, fair or not.

Sure pay him top money for his position, but adding the coach in waiting tag would be similar to Kentucky with Joker or Texas with Muschamp, premature. The CIW tag went out of fashion because of these two, IMO.

He's already been at one program who did the CIW thing and they passed on retaining him, Baylor is out due to his previous stint even tho it makes the most sense for both parties, so your in competition to retain him from being a HC in a greater 5 conference, CIW guarantee can be saved for leverage against a lower tier power 5 school.

If briles can make franks look good I think you have to give him a ton of credit. Mullins is considered a qb whisperer but he could only make franks average.

Scheme had quite a bit to do with that as well. Yes, Merlins is overall a great QB coach, but i dont believe he used da Alpaca/Llama etc in the best way for his abilities.

If we have a decent oline, just watch. Kookaid and all.

Our scheme should be this year what it should’ve been last year.
Franks: “Hey guys, did you know I can throw a football 70 yards?!”

Burks,Knox, and woods: “No shit? Well turns out all three of us receivers here are big and fast as frick so if you can just chunk it way the frick down the other end of the field we’ll go get it!”

Franks: “awesome thanks guys!.” You can call it the manziel/Evans offense

Mullins is a qb whisperer for what coaching tebow and dak? Talk about freak athletes to work with. Mullins struggles when the qb doesn't fit the offense

Not sure I would classify Knox as fast but he should be much better this year not dealing with a hip injury all year like he was last year.

Thought it was interesting that Pittman mentioned yesterday Warren and Hammonds are our top WRs outside of the top three. It’s pretty obvious Briles values speed at WR over everything else.

Knox has good speed but at 6-5 will give defenses problems.

Burks isn't as tall but is by far the most physical and can wrestle balls from defenders hand.

Warren and Hammonds have the speed.

Kingsley Suamataia set to announce Tuesday night and it's expected Oregon. Not being able to get a visit really hurt any longshot opportunity.

Arkansas is the lone SEC representative on the top seven list, although Suamataia had multiple options from that conference. The Razorbacks have made a strong push since the arrival of assistant coach Sam Pittman, who was recruiting Suamataia aggressively while at Georgia. The prospect was named OL MVP at the Bulldogs' camp last summer and picked up the offer then.

Are we taking a look at Javyn Wright out of Vian, OK?

We have Solomon, but this Javyn kid is pretty legit as an ATH. Not sure if they’re family or not.

quote:

“I had a pretty good game,” Wright said. “The line, they helped me out a lot and my team was pretty solid. We knew it was going to be a tough game, we had to bear down and play. And then once we got going, we got going.” Wright carried the ball 35 times for 283 yards, three rushing touchdowns and threw two passes for 121 yards and one touchdown. He also converted on two 2-point conversions to help Class 2A No. 1 Vian beat Class 4A No. 9 John Marshall, a matchup that was scheduled just the day before. But even with everything Wright accomplished, his performance didn’t surprise Willis. “Same thing he’s done the last two weeks,” Willis said. “We went to Arkansas and played a [Class] 4A Gravette team, big size like this, he runs for 150 [yards] in about 102 heat index. Last week against Eufaula, who’s one of the best defenses we see, he goes for 249 [yards]. He’s got offers, we’re waiting for other guys to say, ‘Hey look at this kid’ because he definitely can go play somewhere.”


Vian beats John Marshall
