And Ndamukong Suh before him. But they were never credible threats to win it, I think. Scooby Wright was unbelievable this year and placed 9th - the defensive players just get the votes as a concession, not because anyone expects to give them the award.
You never saw The Longest Yard?
No I think her face is stuck that way
Yeah, I was kinda afraid that would be how it went. Though I couldn't find a vote count yet on Google.
Oh well, at least Archie's record is safe for one more year. And maybe if we're really lucky Amari Cooper shows up 20 pounds overweight and made out of cheeseburgers.
Is Troy's record safe?
I bet Miller can just get a surgeon to touch up his Block O into a Block M, should be no trouble at all.
I suppose a 4-6-1 season is a bit worse than 6-7. I guess if I wanted to be technically correct I should say it's the season with the most losses.
The last time Arkansas had a coach who won meaningfully more than half of their conference games I wasn't born yet.
I think we should find another Tom Herman. Scott Frost is probably a year or two away from a HC job. We need to find somebody at an Iowa State or an Indiana that puts together a potent spread office because then we'll keep him for four or five years.
That's a big relief!
We consistently do well, though. When we went 6-7 it was the worst season in school history. Arkansas does that every year!
Did you listen to this week's dubcast? What Eli's mom and Zeke's dad really drove home for me is that the university has the money and wants to pay for the trips and can't. The payoffs to the schools are enormous, but their hands are tied. These are families paying five figures just to follow their sons while their sons make literally millions of dollars for the school. It's not people starving or dying of malaria, but it's an easily remedied senseless mess.
I think the secondary does a damn fine job already.
I don't know if you caught it but Doran was targeted seven times in the B1GCG and got 4 PBUs and 2 picks. Now, Stave is unquestionably a bad quarterback, but if that's not taking advantage I don't know what is.
The ejection was at the end of the first half so he doesn't have to sit out any more time.
Agreed. And it's more like one every other game anyway - just not a huge deal.
Yeah, his regression this year isn't all on his o-line. I'm just saying it's not all on him either. Maybe he'll turn it around next year?
Looks like you're right. At least Tom Herman got the Broyles, though.
Edit; John Simon won the Bill Willis award in 2012. Not a major award, but a national named award nonetheless.
I was in the middle of the student section when Drake Johnson tore his ACL at The Game and we didn't give him shit either. Respectful silence, then applause.
Are you referring to their second drive when center Dan Voltz went down? I was there and didn't hear that. I was right in the *33 stack of the stadium and it was quiet by me until he stood up, and then it was applause.
Scooby was unbelievable- 14 sacks, 27 TFL, a dozen more tackles than Shazier had last year. Bosa's unbelievable, and the D-line doesn't always stuff their stat sheet, but Scooby didn't cheat Bosa out of anything. He was dominant in every 'zona game I watched.
He also had traffic cones for an Oline. They're 122nd in sacks allowed so they could make every d-line they play look like four all-Americans.
Both of his misses were in absolutely critical times, too. Weren't they the end of the Louisville and Boston College games when the team was thoroughly on the ropes?
Eyeballing their throwing numbers against ours it seems like we have a pretty big edge against opponents not named Penn State. Sims' only big day against a decent secondary was against Florida, and other than that their numbers are similar or a little weaker. It'll be tough to stop but not world-beating.
Apparently they're all trust funders anyway.
