The "hey I'm not so gloom and doom about the Hogs" thread
« on: July 28, 2017, 04:16:09 PM »
Feel free to post whatever you want, but as opposed to the "he's got a foot" thread which seems to only invite the "Bert's fat," "We suck," "Petrino will win 7 national championships and we'll win the honor roll" posts.

Or don't.

My spy at practice says Dave Williams looks pretty dang good.  Whaley is definitely # 1, but he won't have to carry the whole load.

We've got some talent at receiver, but obviously unproven.

The line moves better, but of course until they pad up (on Tuesday I think) it's hard to say anything about the line.

Austin Allen far and above the rest at qb (no surprise).  Storey possibly turning a positive corner, but Kelley seems to have the edge, but at this point Storey will probably be # 2 on the depth chart.  Who knows what a few days of practice will bring out though.

Some meetings in the morning and practice at 4.  Same schedule for Saturday. 

My spy doesn't get to see the defense much.  His friens think errbody is liking the new scheme.

I'm getting in contact with my source in Ouachita county this weekend. Should know more about something big that's going to happen within the next three months. Will keep errbody posted.

I thought he was in jail?  Wait, that's probably just as good a source as I've got too.  Ask him if we will still be using a tee to kick off with.  Plus, it is Friday afternoon, so somebody's probably getting fired too.

I have been a fan for so long, that I try to stay at a pretty even keel.  Losses do hurt, but don't ruin my life.  I am ready for the season to begin.

I have a very good friend moving from the Atlanta area to Hot Springs Village and I may try to make a trip to see him and take in the Auburn game.  Not sure I am physically able to make the trip, but am hoping to.

Incidentally, this friend has been with me to approx 10 Razorback games and has never witnessed a victory.  I probably should make my trip early for the Florida A&M game to insure a first win.

I'm very optimistic about the production we will get from Whaley and AA this year.  Throw in some production we'll be getting from redshirt players and transfers we have not seen much of to date and we've got the stuff that preseason dreams are made of.   :helmet:

If you think you're above failure, you'll always be beneath success.

Somebody said the concession stands will have Mountain Dew this year. I thought they already did, but if not, that's a positive.  Unless you're trying to watch your caffeine.

I'll be watching and cheering, but I doubt I go to as many games this year.

Expecting good production from the offense, little production from the defense.  On a positive note, I'm excited to see how Agim and Greenlaw look.  We need them to be All SEC players to win 9.

we'll all get sucked in at some point.

I hope the defense can make a stop when they need to in the 4th QTR. that would be progress.

We've got more playmakers on defense than people think.
Agim taking on a bigger role could be a huge factor.

I’ve never experienced anyone working at CFA being a jerk or rude but yesterday I encountered a guy in the drive thru who was not only rude but a jerk. When I finally had my order and he didn’t even say my pleasure I yelled “thanks for being a jerk” and drove off.

I'll be indifferent. I love my hogs. I want so badly to be excited about the upcoming season...but until we learn how to finish out a game (especially not blowing BIG leads), I just can't. I'm trying really hard to can...but at this point, I just can't.

...as for me and my house, we will call the Hogs.

Until we can not take the foot off the gas in games we kinda have won, I agree.

I am optimistic. Think the offense will be very good and the defense will improve throughout the year as they get accustomed to the 3-4. One thing that helps the offense is that this seems to be a down year for SEC defenses.

All that said: if we go 6-6 or worse I will jump off the Bret wagon.

I have a feeling we will be a contender this year based purely on Hog fan instinct. We usually do well when nobody thinks we will be that good.

Having said that, I will enjoy the 7-5 season that I just jinxed us into.

Don't waste your time with the mouth breathers.

The trick is to get to that magical 7/8 win mark going into a bowl, that puts us into that liberty/Texas realm most of the time and we generally can win those bowls. If you win too many they expect it every time.

Our defense cannot be as bad as it was last year. I truly believe that.

We all know that Bert's teams start off slow, but how slow this year? How well will the players transition to the 3-4?

I am tired of starting off slow and having to wait till the end of the year for the team to improve.

Sorry to shit in the community kool-aid.
