Bold Words

Nutt slipped from No. 1 to No. 6 in this week's's ranking of the coaches feeling the most heat (one place behind Nick Saban - ha). Check out what the site's blog page has to say about our fearless leader:

"There is so much more to the Houston Nutt story than a win/loss record, and people that have not followed what has happened to Arkansas football since the end of last season, have not paid attention enough to comment on these matters (ESPN talking heads) ... He recruited a ton of talent to Fayetteville and if Malzahn had been given free reign to run the Arkansas offense last season (which would have led to Mustain staying at UA) we have doubt that the Razorbacks would be undefeated and No. 1 in the country right now heading to play LSU. How sad, but also a good lesson for coaches and managers everywhere. When you hire someone to do a job, get the hell out of their way and let them do that job."

I'm assuming they meant to say they have "no doubt" or "little doubt" that the Hogs would be undefeated and No. 1 in the country. I think the Razorbacks would definitely have enjoyed a better season if Malzahn and Mustain were still here ... but undefeated!?! Even if Mustain were around and began living up to the hype, the Hogs would still have that shaky defense, for starters.
