John L. needs to stay … for now
Firing John L. Smith is not the answer.
It wasn’t when Jack Crowe was fired after losing to Citadel either. It took six years for the program to recover. It wasn’t until Danny Ford’s fifth recruiting class, the one Houston Nutt went 9-3 with, that the Razorbacks were competitive.
Ford recruited big, strong linemen and good linebackers and defensive backs.
Plus, there were some better than average recruiting classes in Arkansas, and that helped too.
The myriad of problems the Hogs are facing right now have to do with leadership, or a lack thereof, and not matching up personnel wise.
Yes, John L. needs to step up in the leadership department, but he’s not the only one on that sideline who needs to act like their job is on the line.You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
