    I think what you're trying to say is you fear Napier is Campbell without the P5 experience.

      Cambell has literally never had a season like Napier’s last 3. Not one. In 11 tries. Not at G5, not at P5. He’s never won 10 games, while BN has done it three of four years.

      This is the type of nonsense I’m talking about. It’s not fact checked or based on any sense of reality. Since we’re just rambling, my biggest fear with Napier is his tendency to mutilate squirrels. That could be tricky.

        East and South Arkansas are pretty awful. However, there are some parts of Arkansas that are absolutely beautiful and great to visit, especially if you like the outdoors.

          I agree completely. Im not sold on Napier at all.

          Howver if Napier and Campbell were the only two coaches sitting on the shelf, I take Napier every time regardless of price.

          Campbell is just a name all the all the morkn belch despite never watching 10 minutes of his game tapes or looking at his stats even. They think it makes themselves sound smart because they keep parroting what the other morons say.

            I drove into Little Rock from Memphis. First thing I saw crossing the state line was a garbage dump and it went downhill from there…..

              This is actually a pretty good option for a formal Gatorchatter slogan.

                    So in 4 years at a G5 program Campbell went 35-15, 24-8 in conference, while in 4 years at a G5 program Napier has gone 38-12, 26-5 in conference. Now one might think the MAC is tougher than the SBC, but that is irrelevant to me.

                    My worry is based on Napier's 91st and 81st passing yards offense the last two years and Campbell's similar 68th and 40th passing yards offenses his last two years at Toledo and my perception of how he plays at Iowa State. So there we are, I fear Napier is Campbell without the power 5 experience.

                        Campbell is a loser, and justifies it with his own words. He’s content winning 7-9 games a year. Napier has and is currently demanding that he gets the support required to win. He could’ve taken a major pay raise last year with Aub or this year with us. Yet he didn’t. There’s a reason for that.

                        Also, he just beat Campbell last year, and the story of the game was that he made MC quit. They are nothing alike.

                            I've done that drive many times, and it's pretty terrible. All of east Arkansas is awful. Northwest Arkansas and parts of central Arkansas (i.e., Hot Springs, Greers Ferry Lake, and the Buffalo River) are the exact opposite.

                              And yet here we few are trying to ring the warning bell in the face of an onslaught of potato love led by our fearless and glorious Leader and his sidekick, sofla. Speaking of sofla, I wonder if he got his Mullen tramp stamp removed yet?

                                Yes, he had it covered up.

                                AKA is hanging on though. Thinks maybe we will re-hire him, wants to beat the rush.

                                    Good point. I've already purged most Dwagtham from the que. It is time to get rid of a few of these.

                                      You know who has won 10 games? In the toughest division of the toughest conference?
                                      I'll let you figure that out.

                                              Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
