    Blew a .08 which is irrelevant. By the time the blood draw happened he was under the legal limit.

    Case dismissed

    DWI in Arkansas cannot be reduced or amended once charged. It has to be either tried to the Court or plead to. Therefore it can’t be dismissed. Thats one of the reasons DWI trial attorneys charge an arm and a leg.

    My brother in law had one dismissed. He was on a dirt road just up the street from where we live and Benton County pulled him over on state line road on the Missouri side. He spent the night in jail but the case was dismissed once they pinpointed where he was pulled over and how the officer was out of his jurisdiction.

    All I'm saying is you're showing your ass if you truly believe Chad Morris and Bret Bielema are the same level of head coach. I know I'm biased, but that's a god awful take.

    I agree that Bret is a good coach, but he had some really bad judgment calls here that stick out more to our battered wives fanbase that he doesn’t get any credit, and considering the shape he left our program in when he left... he gets even less credit.

    I can't and am not trying to argue that portion. My intent was only to say how bad Chad is as a coach, and leader of a program. And trying to say him and B are in the same realm is ignorant.

    Chad is well on his way to being the worst coach in the history of Razorback football. When we lose to Colorado State this weekend it is going to get very ugly for him

    Bret made a few terrible assistant coach hires that sealed his fate.

    Ark. Code Ann. 5-65-107. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen in smaller areas. I’m saying the law is very clear that doing what happened to your brother in law is now illegal and the judge doesn’t have the power to do it. Prosecutor would actually be breaking the law by doing it, which would result in big trouble for his law license. A high profile person in a large area will most likely not yield the same result as your BIL. It sounds like your brother won on a jurisdictional argument that the officer did not have the authority to stop him in the first place. That is wholly different from the argument you put forth for dismissal such as lack of proof of intoxication.

    Get the fuck out of here with this shitty ass take.

    Morris hasn't demonstrated ANY quality football coaching yet, however at least he is recruiting. Bert couldn't even do that. I mean how many kids did Bert recruit who never saw the field? The only saving grace for us here was at least once Pittman and Chaney left, Bert was exposed for the shit coach he is. Morris is catching shit because he is playing with the pile of shit Bert left him. I wouldn't be pumping your chest about how great of a job Bert did in fucking this program up.

    Chad might end up being a terrible coach with his own players. We will see about that. However he isn't half as bad as Bert was. You are definitely correct though. There are few coaches in the realm of how terrible Bert was.

    You could lump him in with people like Chris Ash, John L Smith, Butch Jones, etc. They might be decent coordinators, but dear god don't give them control of the team.

    I'm all for bashing parts of Bielema's coaching/leadership style.

    The stuff you guys attack just isn't it 95% of the time. If you want to bash hiring Anderson, or whatever the LB coaches name was his last year, I'll join in on that.

    I know you don’t like him, but this is pretty over the top. Bert had all sorts of flaws (the coach not the elite poster) but he was leaps and bounds better than the turds you mentioned.

    Winning at Arkansas is tough to do and you have to have a lot of shit align perfectly for that to happen. For Nutt it was having McFadden (Little Rock), Felix (Tulsa), Hillis (Conway), Andrews (Searcy), Ugoh (Texas), MJ (Fort Smith)... for Bobby it was Mallett (Texarkana), Wilson (Greenwood), Joe Adams (LR), the Warren AR boys (Gragg, Wright, Childs).. etc

    The state isn’t pumping out that talent right now.

    Damn right, this state has rarely put out top talent. The quality coaches could find a solution to this. We werent good in the 60s, 70s, and 80s (and even in the late 90s) because of Arkansas talent. It helped a lot, but we were able to get kids from Texas and Louisianna. Bert never cared for that. Look at Bert's last year. Look at the lack of preparation, the lack of discipline, the lack of effort. Its all over the field. We may be losing these past two years but we look better than we did Bert's last year here.

    Bret took a team that was struggling coming off of John L coaching, and showed he could win with the talen Pittman and Chaney assembled. Then he consistently got worse following the Texas game. Bret peaked, and then took the team worse and worse. Chad at least has improved the team from a talent perspective and an effort, and discipline perspective since taking over. He isn't doing it fast enough and there are TONS of reasons to criticize this coaching staff. Craddock included. However Bret did more damage to this program than he ever improved it.

    I am not crediting Chaney, I looked at Chaney and Pittman as a combo, Pittman was part of the package with Chaney. I credited the recruiting successes we saw with Pittman to both. I should have separated it out.

    He’s going to have that conversation with the QB’s before saying anything to the media.

    Nick is obviously more talented, but he fucked up multiple times with the alignment which killed drives too.

    I agree, but it’s improving. Add guys like 4* OT Crawford, 4* OT Garrett Hayes, 4* OG Omari Thomas, and 3* Brady Ward and you’re really starting to put together a solid OL with guys that everyone in the country wants. It takes a couple years to establish those relationships and win recruiting battles (as we’ve also seen with Muss on the hoops trail). Morris being this effective thus far is at the very least exciting. If anything, the cupboard won’t be completely bare if things don’t work out for him two years from now.

    How highly rated was the OL transfer from ND we picked up in the off-season?

    Edit; that’s Ward isn’t it? I couldn’t remember his name.

    How many wins guarantees Chad a third season? Let's look at it that way.

    If you're the AD, how many wins does Chad need?

    Three? Four? Five?

    Two?

    Can we all agree that if we went winless the rest of the way, 1-11, he's fired? What about 2-10 again?

    Same, although I'm 50/50 on us beating Colorado St.

    After that there's just no game on there I can say we have a better than 50% chance on. Obviously it's college football and things happen, but all things being equal Chad looks to go winless in the conference two years in a row. I can't imagine that being tolerated
