Is the Chandler Morris, I'm presently watching in the Under Armor All American, the one that was coming to Arkansas?  Let me guess - Auburn?
Thats him, but he is going to Oklahoma, he announced it before the game today.  I figured he was going to Auburn with his dad, but I guess he wants to try to make his own way.  Doubt he plays at all at OU though.

Last year's recruiting surprised me - Top 20?  I realize the Hogs are sitting around #50 (this years recruits), but a couple of weeks ago you were +100.  I like that there are strong Defensive Recruits in this class.  Keep up the good work Coach Pittman!

Looking like the recruiting will end up between 25 to 35 range. Agree Valley from where it was at to this and the dead period that's a solid job if it happens

  • With great power comes great electricity bill
Nevada
at Notre Dame 
at Miss State 
Texas A&M 
Charleston Southern 
Alabama 
LSU 
BYE
Tennessee 
at Auburn 
Ole Miss 
ULM 
Missouri 

So looking here, you'd like to think the schedule is favorable and a bowl season is very possible. But you just never know with Arkansas football.
We know 3 for sure losses are Notre Dame, Bama, and LSU.
I would like to think there are 3 for sure wins in Nevada, Charleston Southern, and ULM.
So 3-3 so far.

The only other game I'd say is close enough to a W would be Missouri just because not only are they breaking in a new coach, but we have their previous coach. I think we get a W against Missouri this year. Hopefully though we have a SEC win before this game comes though.
So 4-3.

Even though Morris went to Auburn to run his "high powered" offense, I'm positive they can still beat us.
4-4.

I think the rest could all go either way. It just depends on what Hog team shows up. Because we all know there is just some underlining mysterious force up on the hill. It don't matter who is on the field or who is on the sideline. No games are guaranteed in Fayetteville.

I think A&M still gets us this year, with the game being so early in the season. We will get them next year though.
4-5.

So sitting at 4-5 which is already miles better than the previous two years with 3 more games to decide. I would like to say we could beat at least 1 of the 3 of Miss State, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. Beating 2 and going bowling would be a bit of a stretch. I see us losing at least one of them.

So I'm picking 5-7 this year. Worst case would be 3-9 and a 3rd straight winless season in the SEC. Best case I see would be 8-4 and absolute best case would be 9-3

A&M will battle for the SEC West 2020, maybe more 2021, barring no unforseen big changes.  They will field the best team (4/5 star) they've had since joining the SEC (maybe ever).  Fisher's first 2 recruited classes (2019 & 2020) are Top 5.  They're returning all 11 Defensive starters and 9 on Offense.  What on earth leads you to believe A&M will GET BY Arkansas this year, but not next year?

I sure hope Coach Pittman works out, he's a very good coach but he has a totally new roll to manage now.  I'm ok with Pittman but I'd loved to see what Leach could have done at Arkansas.

Getting a team to last game ought to increase the size of that pot of money the conference gets to divvy out.  (but everybody else AR is competing against in the conference gets some of that too.)

The better the conference is, the more attractive it is to recruits.  Perhaps some kid wants to play in the SEC, but no othet team will take him.  Go Arkansas!

4* CB that was due to visit was told by the staff we no longer had room. We have 3 committed and supposedly taking 4. Think staff is feeling pretty good on a ready to play player. 4* Juco I believe.

Just not very often that Iíve seen Hogs telling 4* we donít have room.

One spot we are really missing on getting interest in is TE. Only two visiting and recruiting guys donít have good vibe in either of them. Think we only have 2 or 3 not sure.

Really not to surprising. Pittman probably had relationships with most of those guys as well as hitting the areas where the other staff members used to cover.

Looking positive on Ebony Jackson.

Franks will be deciding over the next couple days.

Sure will be nice when the recruiting season is over and we see where we stand.  Then we can get to spring ball and a lot of work.

Picked up a kicker today as well. Vito Calvaruso. Watched his hudl. Looks like we donít have to worry about KO returns next year. Kid is bombing over the uprights.

Think he is PWO but if we donít fill up in other schollys I can see him getting one
