Yep, he should just give up since he clearly cant recruit in the SEC.  Maybe the Big 12 will take him.

Maybe if we could win more than one conference game every 3 years, Sam could find it easier to recruit.

I've been looking for jump to conclusions in this thread.  So far, nothing.

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

Nope. I just said that IF IT’S TRUE that Pittman couldn’t sell Criswell to come to Arkansas, that would be a failure.

I’m cautiously optimistic on Pittman improving the team.

If true, that is a major failure for Coach Sam.

You were a major failure when you dropped out of your mom's cooch.

But here we are.

How would that be a failure? It would be a letdown, but in no way a failure because you couldnt flip a kid that has committed to another school.

Maybe if Chaggie would’ve recruited criswell instead of taking a commitment from his 5’9 165 pound son who can barely throw the ball 50 yards with a running start.

Good question.  Even if true, I can't conclude this would be a failure for Pittman.  Who knows what goes through these kid's heads when making these decisions?  I'd rather judge Pittman's overall success on his record here as head coach.

Agree, but one of the selling points on Pittman was his ability to recruit. My  only concern is it should be easy to flip an Arkansas kid to the Razorbacks. I expect Pittman to do it.

Can you blame a kid for going to the place he’s planned on going to? Arkansas under new management may be able to sway him and may not. If he waits till Feb to sign that would indicate that he’s mulling it over.

He's got a whole lifetime of evidence of being an excellent recruiter.  Even an excellent recruiter is not a perfect recruiter.  Let's see how this plays out.

I just want to say Mr. Starkel that I for one never stopped believing in you. I believed in you when you saved us from Colorado State. I believed you wouldn’t succeed here after throwing 5 ints in a game. I wish you luck in your future endeavors.

I don’t understand how it’s even a controversial view that it should be easy to sell Arkansas kids on staying home and playing for the Razorbacks? Does playing for your home state university not mean anything to kids in Arkansas anymore?

Well...no and why would it coming off 4-8, 2-10, and 2-10. That will inspire many kids to not come here. I’m guessing the prior staff didn’t recruit him very hard, his relationships and decision during this process are with UNC in mind...to turn back from that is not an easy decision. ESP not knowing what offense will be ran here.

We saw Ty Storey be serviceable once removed from Aggie Trash and the SMU crew. I'm not going to judge or blame Starkle, he's probably a lot better than he showed if he only had proper coaching.

Agree. I know this is probably old news/and or master of the obvious but I read technique was never addressed in Chad’s practices, all they did was run plays.

Calmer than you are.

Because that has nothing to do with criswell.

He wasn’t even offered by the prior staff so he built a relationship with UNC and committed and Pittman had one visit to try to flip him and the kid probably already made up his mind.

Come back next year when Pittman has a full recruiting cycle and if he is whiffing on a lot of in state players then you can start this.

both criswell and haynes king, the kid committed to a&m, had strong interest in arkansas. word leaked out early that morris's kid had committed and that was enough for both to look elsewhere.

chad no intention of recruiting another qb no matter where they came from.

You're really bitching about this?
Pittman hasn't been on the job a week yet. Temper your expectations.
