At this point, it would be hard for them not to.

Feliepe Franks is terrible.

Had to look it up, but apparently their new OC is Kendal Briles and their new DC is Barry Odom. Not sure why such high-profile guys would want to be coordinators there, but power-to-em.

Also, they seem to be getting several high-profile grad transfers..

We will still beat them, but they might be better than the dumpster fire they have been the last couple years.

I really didn't know much about him so I looked up his stats. #41 ranked QB in 2018 as a sophomore by passer rating which isn't great. However, he was ranked #7 by efficiency in 2019, but that was only through 4 games before he got injured.

Not saying he is all-world, but he's gotta be better than what they had.

We'll see. Plenty of programs win the off-season, but fail to translate on the field.

That's pretty much the story of almost every coach before the hit the field for their first game.

Every year we have the "arky stinks" thread, and every year, our hearts are in our throats with 5 minutes to go.

So what you are saying is that their former QB was ass, my dude?
I'd rather drink "Kool-Aid" than go thirsty.

they will definitely be better than the chad morris dumpsterfire that they were the last 2 seasons. no question.

still doesn't mean they will be good, and that still doesn't mean our game with them will be easy.

There were some sunshine pumping after the hires of Franchione, Sherman, and Sumlin.

Boyd is huge. Franks is an updgrade, but not the final answer.

The clemson kid has 2.5 sacks in 15 games. Guessing most of his PT came in garbage time. Probably has some upside, but not likely a difference maker.

A lot of things still must go right for them to make a bowl.

No where to go but up in Fayetteville.

After 8 straight losses, I have zero worry until they actually pull it off.

I've thoroughly enjoyed them being a smoldering dumpster and hope the trend continues.

I don't know if you remember OP, but Felipe Franks is very very bad.

How bad? When Mond was a freshman, he put battled Franks @ Florida. What does that say about Franks when he can't even be better than freshman Mond?

The best thing that happened to Florida last season was Franks getting hurt.

Well considering the oc is trying to rebuild his name after baylor and the dc got fired from a hc gig, it's not that surprising.

And grad transfers wanting in isn't hard to believe considering instant playing time is an easy pitch with how bad they are.

The won't be last year bad, but aren't remotely close to competing, they just may merely be annoying to some teams.

I fear it is that exact mentality that will lead to that first loss.

It's going to happen eventually. And it is going to sssuuuuuuuucccccckkkkk....

Will it suck as bad as losing 8 in a row in heart wrenching fashion?

All I know is that we better not see anything like this happen again, but at Jerryworld.

I was at that game. Thought that was going to cost it for us right there after we had momentum.
I'm not impressed with Franks.

Seems Arky plays A&M tight every year. As bad as they are now, might not be so fun to watch as they improve. Lots of tough talk in off season, but they are definitely still a threat.

Except almost every one of those losses could have gone the other way.

I don't think Franks is great but he did have 31 total TDs to just 6 INTs in 2018.

For context:

Franks passing efficiency rating:
2019: 173.4 (just 3 games)
2018: 143.4
2017: 113.3

Arkansas QBs in 2019: 109.4 (Starkel), 94.6 (Hicks)

But they didn't.
