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

      I thought our slogan was The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

        I'm not sure there's any good here.

          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.

                        Just a reminder. Mullins got fired.

                          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.

                                  You can't win as the coach of a Muhsippi school in the SEC west. Hell even 33-39 is a miracle.

                                    Ok, I’ll give Lane credit and once again, I will happily take him as a head coach if that’s what happens. But can we also call a spade a spade. The West this year is a shell of what it has been since 2008. Lsu is garbage, Aub is garbage, and Ark and A&M are average at best. They still lost to an imperfect Alabama team and Bo Nix. It’s really no different than Mullen winning 10 in 2014, but failing to win his division.

                                      Are you claiming that the above mentioned schools are not down this year, or are you denying that Mullen won 10 games in 2014?

                                      Also, are we now going away from the well established (and correct) narrative that 10 wins today is the equivalent of 9 wins prior to 2006, skewing all these “first time” accomplishments, or is that just reserved for coaches we don’t like?

                                        Ya know. This ain't the first time you've just made shyt up. The West ain't that weak. Kiffy has replaced LSU. And the West is still better than the East. Top 3 in the East 25-8. The West 28-6.
                                        ltraz explained how Kiffy's 10 wins are different than Mullen's.
                                        You don't need two PHDs to figure his stuff out.
