Had some better performances last night but just not good enough yet to get it done.  Yeah injuries hurt but that is always part of football.  Depth and keeping composure during adverse conditions is part of getting to a winning place.  Some coach needs to teach Storey that if you run the ball in the SEC you are going to get hammered and we cannot afford to go back to Kelley.  Storey tries hard, doesn't have a great arm but the gameplan seems to be organized around what he does well, we need to keep him in the game.  All season coaches have talked about need for better protection and then you hang your QB out to dry a couple of plays and haven't coached him to get down apparently.

51,438. In wet, cold, “terrible place” conditions....


Largest crowd the hogs have played in front of all year.


Way to show up LR/central ARK/south ark and the fans that traveled from the north.

Haha, got a good laugh out of this one.

Who will start if Storey cannot go? Im rooting for Noland. If he plays in this game, will he still be able to redshirt?

Absolutely not, but with the new redshirt rule, I wasn't sure if he could play in this game and still have the ability to redshirt.

If Arkansas can win this game they better do whatever it takes to get the W. If it means Noland plays then he plays whether he losses a year or not.  To be honest, with the recruits we think we are getting none of the current guys may have much playing time in their future unless they improve greatly.  Go get this win, whatever it takes.

Kelly Bryant coming to Fayetteville this weekend. He says he is excited to see what Arkansas has to offer.

Surely the fans can show him more than 42k in a half empty stadium that can hold 76k.

I'm curious as to the planing behind recruitinf KB.  If he comes I would think he would be the starter, otherwise why leave where he is and why come here or anywhere else unless he's sure he is starting.  So, he comes in and has 1 season, what about the other recruits at the QB spot?  Do they stay, or leave, do the other incoming recruits at QB come or opt for some other school rather than wait?

Recruiting long term OBs might be iffy until Morris' son decides what he wants to do.

The way i undestand it, they can play 4 games. He has only played in one didmt he?

Ty Storey out against Tulsa. Hopefully Noland will start since it's against a team like them and can show us what someone more built for Morris's offense than Kelley or Story can do

How is Connor more built for morris offense than story? Id go along with him being more built than kelly for sure though.

Thats a question. Not a slap.

Storey has earned my respect big time. Kid may like to get his bell rung, be he is one tough guy and he has had zero problem showing his team that he is our best QB.

I often wonder what Hog football would have been if Pearl Harbor never happened.  To explain, arguably the greatest college coach of all time, Bear Bryant was born in Moro Bottom Arkansas, was a great high school player, played college ball at Alabama, and started coaching after that.  Long story short, Bryant was offered the head coaching job at Arkansas, but turned it down to join the Navy to serve his country, and we all know the rest of the story.  So yes, the greatest coach of all time was a Arkansas boy, and we missed out on him because of war.  The first of many bad breaks for the Hogs.  Sorry for the long post, Go Hogs.

Hog walk was empty. Stands are empty. Storey is out Noland to start. Whaley out. Then you find out last week Morris left Williams off the roster to bring a supposedly injured Hammonds.

I question some of the decision making by this staff especially being conservative when trying to win games.

Not sure how to read this staff at all

Good job by the defense to hold on the short field.

Does anyone else think that Cornelius has checked out

Getting a little better. A lot of confusion on the line on some of these run plays as well. They are gonna make us pass as much as they can so Noland is gonna have to make good decisions
