rEally?

Rivals info vs. Grit Kirk, believe what you will. I didn't recognize 90 % those guys listed, and none of them signed here excepting the ones that were in Rivals' database as having been here on officials.

The point remains. Bump the numbers from 3 the Auburn weekend to 6 (gasp!), and we still bring most of our guys in after the season. Also, you ain't bringing guys in on officials to LA Monroe or Weber State. You bring a shitload of unofficials in for Auburn, Bama, etc., and a few officials. In other words, the couple of rent-a-wins you play in Little Rock aren't big visit weekends, anyway.

So you're saying Grit is wrong then?  We didn't host 6 players at Auburn and several for the Tenn game?

I'm saying this:

The point is moot, though. Those are both SEC games, which should all be in Fayetteville. I'd love to see the numbers on official visits to non-SEC games in the last ten years, or Starkville, five, cause that's all that matters. I bet the number is miniscule.

What do you want me to say? If Grit says we had six and Rivals said we had 3, well, I'm glad that was some kind of groundbreaking "gotcha" moment for you that Grit contradicted what I got from Rivals. Other than that, I don't know what you are trying to prove.

Then you parse my words as if you work for a Super PAC out of Washington after I hypothetically allowed that even if your numbers are right, it doesn't prove anything that LR games are detrimental to recruiting from logistics standpoint for officials. Coaches don't typically rely on games for our big visit weekends. We had nearly 35 officials (rough number, I'm sure you'll bust me out and find that it was 33 or 34 from one of the 18 recruiting sources, as legit as they all are) the last 3 weekends of the recruiting season. That leaves 20 visits total out of the 55 allowed, and we rarely use all of our visits.

If we did indeed have 6 for Auburn and "several" for Tennessee (5 or 6), then that leaves ten visist total, which we may not have even used. So assuming Otis was correct....which is what you seem to want to do for some reason, it still proves my point: The staff will take advanage of one or two SEC games and bring a few visitors in, with the vast majority coming to campus in January and several games having zero official visitors. And especially not the directional schools of the world.


Now....feel free to pull a random sentence or two out of context to try and prove your point.

The official visitor issue, for me, isn't about what's been done in the past.  It's about what might be necessary in the future.

If there's a stud recruit from, say, Texas that has a passing interest in Arkansas but not much more than that...and let's say he happens to have a bye week during Louisiana Monroe @ LR.  He wouldn't normally be able to come at all because of his part time job, but he happens to have the weekend off. 

Has that situation happened before? No one knows.  But I would rather us have the flexibility to be able to tell one of those recruits, "Yeah, we'd love to host you on an official this weekend" regardless of the weekend.

...like every other school in college football.

Richard Davenport says 11 so take it for what it's worth.  And you're one to whine about "gotcha" moments when you swoop in with "you're oh so confidant and oh so wrong" and then throw out bullshit info to prove my wrongness.

Fact is that you put out incorrect info to support your position, got called out on it, and are now too chickenshit to admit it was bullshit info.  Pretty much calls into question else you post such as your familiarity with Chartwells when disputing someone else's numbers.

The schedule also seems to be shifting in favor of Fayetteville:

IF they give us Mizzou as a permanent east opponent, we are trading a fanbase on the east coast (Carolina) with one that is 5 hours away, with a large part of its fanbase 3.5 hours away.

IF we go Home & Home with TAMU, we are basically giving up another east team for a team who views us as one of their two closest road trips, and the closest road game for their DFW area fans.

South Carolina is always a game that we have turn-backs for every other year, simply because its so far away for the visiting fans.

We shouldn't have that issue with TAMU or Mizzou in the future.

Anyone who has been to the LSU baseball series at Baum knows they'll have no problem filling their allotment for a football game in Fayetteville.  They have a lot of fans locally, and their fan-base always travels well.

It's highly doubtful that Missouri will sell their full allotment of 8,000 to a game in Fayetteville, Little Rock, or anywhere else outside of the state of Misery.  That doesn't detract from your point;  it's just a statement of how mickey mouse the Misery football program and their support will be.

like you and others have mentioned....play friggin howlin n aMm to open the season down there for a set period of time and then be done with it....
