I see 4-5 star high school players in Texas, Oklahoma, Lousiana and other places and when I look at the schools recruiting them, Arkansas is not one of them. Bert seems to go after the 3 star players and hope he can compete...not gonna happen. We have no kicker and dont seem to be recruting one? We need to find a big running and passing quarter back and get away from this pro style attact. Lets make Arkansas great again and get some 5 star recruits and a new coach.

The Porkers are not a Power 5 conference team. I think a better fit would be the American Athletic Conference. Houston, SMU, Tulsa, Memphis, that's more our speed. At least in the old SWC we were semi-competitive against all those Texas teams. And believe me I followed them everywhere for bowl games and regular season games. But after they joined the SEC I never bought into the hype. And that's all they are.

He's been losing for 5 years and fans are upset now? I thought Arkansas fans were happy with the liberty bowls and belk bowls. I gave up on football when there was no change after losing to Toledo and Texas Tech. Razorback football is getting what it asked for....give him 5 more years and he'll right the ship LMAO Whew-Pig

The program was broken because Jeff Long hired John L Smith....when most likely Tim Horton would have done a better job and certainly could not have done any worse. He would have had plenty of coaches from the past that would have given him advice. John L Smith did not know where he was or who he was going to play...
