Need to trust process
There has been lots of talk, after the Arkansas Razorbacks finished the 2018 football season 2-10, that Coach Chad Morris isn’t the right man for the job. We need to trust the process.
It was a long season that saw Ty Storey emerge as the starter with a great game against Eastern Illinois to open the season. Then, against Colorado State, the quarterback controversy was again a question, as Cole Kelley replaced Storey after a dismal first half. He led the Hogs to a 27-9 lead, only to see the 0-2 Rams score 25 unanswered points to win 34-27.
The next week the Hogs were blown out by North Texas 44-17, and people were already calling for Morris to be fired.
We need to trust the process. Anytime there’s a coaching change in the SEC, it takes time to rebuild a program.
Bobby Petrino went 5-7 his first season. His last year the Hogs were 11-2, won the Cotton Bowl, and finished No. 5 in the final rankings. Not only do we have a new coach with a new system, we also have a new athletic director.
The football program was in turmoil at the end of last season. We lost senior quarterback Austin Allen, and Coach Morris had to figure out which quarterback could best run his offense at least temporarily.
You also have to consider we play in the toughest division of the toughest conference in college football.
Win or lose, everyone loves the Hogs. Attendance was down, but it will be back up. Even in the cold pouring rain, over 51,000 packed War Memorial in Little Rock to see the Hogs play Ole Miss.
Give Chad Morris time and trust the process. MICHAEL HARGIS Fayetteville
