    I guess a year and a half is the new standard for horrific coaches.

      We continue to have the best head coaching hire from the 2017-18 offseason.

          I guess this is what you get when you hire a 7-5 coach from SMU.

          The team had clearly quit on him and Arkansas had no choice. I'm sure Morris will get an 8-figure buyout for going 4-18.

            Rather than firing both coaches, the two schools should have negotiated a trade. They would have likely ended up no worse off than they will after an extensive coaching search and getting turned down by anyone worth having.

            Al coaches should rent.

            Just not enough time to get his guys. Bet they wish they would’ve kept Bert.

            I'd take 10 mil to get fired. Wonder who they'll hire next.

              Bert's record wasn't much better. He couldn't win a SEC game either.

              Except he beat LSUX2, your Boy Freezex2, your other Boy Butters....by about 100 points AND wait for it....Mullen too....oh I guess he did win some SEC games with Div 3 talent which is all anyone will get at Arky if they aren't paying them like Nutt and Petrino.
              Nobody's winning at Arky.

                Sounds like a good fit for HalfAssU.

                I wasn’t aware we’d officially gone to AI coaching, but I like it.

                They may struggle to relate in recruiting, but that’s no big deviation from the present.

                Good Lord. He was so good he was FIRED.

                People bag on me for defending Urban Meyer, a 3-time NC winner and a guy who filled UF's trophy case to the brim and dominated our rivals.....

                ....and you have the same thing for BURP. For the love of God, why? Why do you love that guy that much? I truly don't get it.

                  I guess Bert does not look so bad now. They were not happy with winning 7 or games and being reasonably competitive against most of the teams in the west. so they hired an "offensive" guy b/c he liked to run 5 wr sets. Well how did that work for them? total morons. It is called football not offense for a reason

                      You(and most of the board) mocked me back in 2015 for saying he would have been a better choice than Butters....Remember?

                      Say what you will about his record there but he was competitive in most games down to the wire. I think he lost about 8 SEC games in overtime or on the last second. He also took them to 4 bowls(2-2) I believe. Trust me 7-6 and 8-5 at Arky is coaching at a pretty high level...

                          I would STILL mock you for that idiocy. The rotted skeleton of Michael Jackson would have been better than Butters, it really isn't setting a high bar. If you think I was thrilled about Butters I welcome you to head to the archives. Is it possible Burp would have been less bad than Butters? You bet, I guess I can give you that.

                          The fact is, the guy was 11-29 in SEC play at Arkansas. That will get you fired every time, no matter how close the games were. Burp would have been just as fired as Butters was right now had he been named UF coach.

                          It still doesn't explain why you love him so much.

                            And yet you seemed enamored with the Butters hire.....
