and you guys know how many recruits he lost to Auburn
But you all told us you didn't want them.

So, he didn't lose any recruits to Auburn according to the same line you've been spewing for years.

Yeah, Bostad, most likely, so if he was posting this on the Rant to "rub it in", nice try.

Horton was waiting around for a staff spot, he had an ucommittable offer on the staff and we landed our 5 star as CBB is an ace recruiter.

Nice guy, good guy.. Not so much on the coaching and recruiting.

Congrats on the moral victory

Horton's recruiting territory was Arkansas and Memphis,


More like from Little Rock to Memphis.

Bobby Allen recruited NWA and River Valley, and Steve Caldwell recruited South Arknasas

And? Ziemba was the only one to pan out.

But the numbers lost don't correlate with an "Ace recruiter" defending his home turf for 4 and 5 stars, yes I'm aware that Dyer had a good year for Auburn.

Give it a few hours and barners will be thinking how the heck did we get stuck with an arkansas reject while they hire a guy who can recruit and coach.

Yes, but Horton "assisted" Allen and Caldwell in those areas as well, since his dad was such a well liked figure in this state. Horton recruited on his own from Little Rock to Memphis while Allen and Caldwell were on their own in LA and portions of Texas.

re: Tim Horton to Auburn


Didn't Tyler Wilson commit to Tulsa while Horton was at Arkansas, but committed to Arkansas after Petrino was hired?

Doesn't seem quite like Horton is the reason he went to Arkasnas...

Tyler Wilson

was coming to arkansas no matter what

quote:

Jarius Wright

didn't even visit oklahoma and their the only bigger name that offered.

quote:

Brey Cook

was arkansas bound

quote:

Knile Davis

good get didn't have many other options

quote:

Ronnie Wingo Jr

whoopty do. Didn't ever teach him how to run the ball in 4 years.

quote:

Darius Winston

Bust
quote:

Joe Adams

we let him play receiver he only had offers at CB other places.

quote:

Brandon Allen

I'm thinking the living in arkansas and bobby allen for a dad may have helped.

quote:

Greg Childs

only tenner is a bigger name school on his offer list and he's an arkansas kid didn't visit anyone else.

quote:

Byran Jones

This was all between us and Auburn. Seemed our biggest advantage was getting in earlier than them on him. He was wishy washy till signing day.

quote:

Dennis Johnson

only other BCS school to offer was okie state. He's from texarkana arkansas. He didn't visit anyone but us. most likely would have been here no matter who recruited him.


also keep in mind since he arrived here we've had horrible fumbling problems from all our RBs.

We hired the guy as a TE coach, we don't even use TE's. Quit bickering it's a good hire. I'm glad we didn't hire some random no name guy. Solid hire

He didn't have an offer from Arkansas until Petrino was hired as Nutt thought he was going to go into the MLB draft.

The first thing Petrino did when he was hired was drive down to Greenwood, visit with Wilson, and offer him a scholly.

Horton was busy with Herring's staff and bowl prep at that time.

Oh. So you're a hypocrite then?


You can't fricking say you didn't want them / weren't recruiting them and then a couple years later claim that Horton lost the recruiting battles for them.

Arky fans are so butthurt.

The little talent they got was because of this guy and now he's gone.
