re: A lot on here are very over dramatic after a win or loss - Kilgore Snout
It's funny because when you get outside of the Arkansas bubble, most people in the nation think of us as a small time program that traditionally overachieves. I love when I spend time in Chicago or California and people say things like "I love watching Arkansas, every time I turn it on you guys a...

re: spin off thread: you boys who always bitch about how we can't recruit - Kilgore Snout
Sigh. South Carolina: Population 4,900,000, Black population 1,372,000 Arkansas: Population 2,900,000, Black population 445,000 BUT GUYS! Arkansas and South Carolina are totally 100% identical!!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: That's just population differences, it doesn't ...

If you think it's so laughable then name ways that 2011 Alabama is better than 2016 Alabama. Name ways that 2011 LSU defense is better than 2016 LSU defense....

[quote]All I get out of this is that we won. Meanwhile, the fat man actually lost to Toledo and Rutgers, not almost lost...LOST. [/quote] But that's the point. Petrino could only beat the cupcakes consistently. He would get beat in the games that mattered, back then that was Alabama and LSU...

[quote]If you took the good teams from the east back then and traded them with the shitty teams from the west back then, then you would have the current SEC. You can't tell me that most of the teams in the West would win the East this year, all would be top 3 at worst in the east. Florida is...

[quote]2011 LSU was being touted as having the best résumé in CFB history prior to the egg they laid in Nola against a team they had already beaten. I mean LSU has three losses this year, how can you compare them to 2011 LSU with a straight face? [/quote] It's a logical fallacy to say that bec...

[quote]I believe he's saying our 2016 schedule is harder. [/quote] And that's the point. He started off by saying it was easier now than when Petrino was here. But it objectively isn't. I remember when people were calling for everyone to be fired almost weekly until November. Especially...

[quote]We only got Kentucky once from 2008-2011. Vandy under Franklin was a decent team. South Carolina was ranked in the top ten when we met in 2011 and we beat them (Bielema would have lost by 25+). This year we got an overrated Florida and historically bad Missouri from the East. [/quote] V...

re: member when Arkansas win ceiling wasn't 8 games - Kilgore Snout
I don't think it's a question that 2016 Alabama is better than 2011 Alabama. I think this is Saban's most complete team and the best defense he has ever fielded. LSU's defense in 2016 is better than it was in 2011 and that's against tougher competition. How is that not a fact? 2011 LSU sch...

[quote]The west is. [/quote] That's the point though. When comparing the schedules between 2011 and 2016, and comparing the strength of the conference, I think that's one of the driving factors. We now play more games in the West than we did back then. We no longer get a Vandy or Kentucky...

2016 Alabama >= 2011 Alabama 2016 Auburn > 2011 Auburn 2016 Arkansas < 2011 Arkansas 2016 LSU = 2011 LSU (2011 LSU offense wasn't great but better, 2016 defense is better) 2016 Mississippi State > 2011 Mississippi State 2016 Ole Miss > 2011 Ole Miss 2016 Texas A&M > 2011 Texas A&M (not in con...

[quote]K. We lost by 24 to Saban's best team and LSU's best team ever. We won 10 regular season games. That is a feat we should not concern ourselves with as long as we pay easily the worst coach in the west 4.5 million. [/quote] This year's Alabama team is better than 2011. And we only lost ...

Closer than the score? Our QB had a 56 QBR. LSU gained 500 yards of offense. Arkansas gained 250. Arkansas rushed for 47 yards. LSU rushed for almost 300. Arkansas had 3 turnovers and very few penalties. What was "closer than the score"? We went up quick 14-0 and gave up 41 straight....

[quote]I miss complaining about close wins instead of 30 point losses [/quote] The point being that the 2011 schedule was easier to go 10-2 in than the 2016 schedule. There were major flaws in 2011 that were masked by a cupcake schedule. The conference is deeper in 2016 than it was in 2011...

re: member when Arkansas win ceiling wasn't 8 games - Kilgore Snout
As are 2 of the teams we lost to this year. I'd actually say this year's Alabama defense is better than either 2011 LSU or Alabama defense. And this year's LSU defense may be better than the 2011 LSU defense. LSU has given up 10 touchdowns this year. Total. Tell me that isn't impressive....

That couldn't move the ball against above average defenses. If you want to truly be an excellent team you have to be able to move the ball consistently against above average teams AND be able to stop below average to average teams with your own defense. I feel like people are forgetting all the ...
