Defense, outside of the missed tackles, has been really good. I'm not sure how Smith is still here, honestly.

I ran out of toes, but at least they are flying to the ball.

Agree … but it is to Rice’s great benefit! So weird to see Rice have such competent defenses the past few years.

Chamberlain makes a sure tackle after a crossing reception over the middle. Arkansas to punt, as 1Q ends.

Bloom is not remotely an intellectual

Just makes it even more apparent Brian Smith should be the HC.

Did they just say it's 95F and 100% humidity? Don't let reality get in your way guys.

Officially, it's 91F and 50% humidity in Fayetteville. Feels like 98F.

10 would imply a field goal.

I suspect our score will be a multiple of 6. (Hopefully many multiples.)

I didn’t hate his first couple series, but I felt like I saw a little more out of McCafferty.

Hmmm … 2 runs up the middle result in a first down. Am I still allowed to grumble when it works?!?

Wiley Green has Tom Brady level mobility. (at least on that last play where he slipped the sack but looked like he was running through molasses he tried to run it)

RE: Arkansas game thread
I'm not exaggerating here...Bloomgren is one of the worst play callers I've ever seen watching college football. The overcomplicating, the inability to adjust, the stubbornness, and the conservativeness. Just a bundle/mess of bad coaching traits.

Our defense has been awesome, and we're one big play from being down 14-3. We can't beat good teams, let alone CUSA teams, with the current offense (yes, it's early and it can still improve).

Way to play for the FG…I miss Hatfield running the option on 4th and 5. And getting the 1st down.

But the offense is very complicated!
