re: Trey Knox is an absolute beast - size, power, speed, finesse, toughness - NielsBoar
I agree the potential is there. The pieces are in place at RB, TE, QB and WR, given some time to develop. Can the O-line step up? Can we correct the mental errors, dumb hole mistakes and poor play calling from Saturday? That stuff is hard to accept in year 2. The plays where Starkel nailed Knox a...

re: Can we discuss this upcoming season - NielsBoar
[quote]Arkansas led the country with 20 freshmen major contributors Petrinos first year. Chad is inheriting a situation more similar to what Nutt walked into that what Ford, Crowe, Petrino, or Bert walked into. Petrinos schedule his first year wasn't as easy as chad's and he was a blown call in the ...

re: Can we discuss this upcoming season - NielsBoar
As good of a coach as he was/is, Bobby Petrino went 5-7 here in his first year. How does the talent level of this team compare to the one Petrino inherited? Which coach will have had the easier schedule in that first year? I'm generally optimistic. I can see 7 potential wins and would be ecstatic...

re: All we had to do is catch a foul pop - NielsBoar
Very true. I'm still not giving Larnach a 2-0 fastball to sit on. I would try a breaking ball over the inside part of the plate - even if he crushes it, it's most likely foul. Or maybe a fastball up (and out) of the zone to see if he'll bite. But I'm not grooving one. I'd rather start over with Rut...

re: All we had to do is catch a foul pop - NielsBoar
When Cronin went 2-0 on Larnach, I was really hoping we would pitch around him, go off speed, try to get him to swing at something out of the zone instead of challenge him. That guy is a beast. Don't let him sit on a 2-0 fastball. In that situation, I'm only going after Larnach after he goes fish...

re: Jalen Hurts dad: Jalen will play, if not “he'd be the biggest free agent in CFB history” - NielsBoar
[img]https://media.giphy.com/media/3o7aTkJH5vly0Zvec8/giphy.gif[/img] Shoot - I'd take him at Arkansas. Proven winner, strong leader and would do well in a Morris offense. Granted, not a great passer, but I don't think we have anyone on campus with a better overall skill set :dunno: Never ...

re: Is the SEC West really a tough division? - NielsBoar
It's the expectations and situation he is walking into. There are a lot of decent coaches who could take advantage of a rich recruiting area combined with a weak conference and back door their way into a national championship game. They beat Duke to win the ACC that year. They beat a good Clemson te...

[quote]If Gus Malzahn can win the West multiple times, surely you realize Jimbo will.[/quote] It will be fun to see how the Jimbo experiment plays out. Clearly you think he is a significant upgrade over Malzahn, but I'm not even sure he's an upgrade over Sumlin. It just has that feel of a team th...

Chavis to Arkansas cluster - NielsBoar
It seems that A) by leaking Chavis to Arkansas and B) by leaking that he is actually already working as a U of A employee, we may have left ourselves in a difficult negotiating position with A&M with respect to Chavis' buyout. If I was A&M, I would be saying we want to "promote" Chavis to "qualit...

re: Rank the SEC hires - NielsBoar
Would like to see a slightly different thread... one that ranks the hires taking the previous coach into consideration... 1) Mcelwain - Mullen 2) Bielema - Morris 3) Sumlin - Fischer 4) Butch - Pruitt 5) Mullen - Moorhead I am admittedly unsure where Butch - Pruitt should go. Florida is by...
