The Razorbacks struggled on the back half of the 2020-21 football season finishing at 3-7 with a 4-game losing streak, but here is why the Razorbacks future is bright.
Covid19 has made life for everyone and everything extremely hard and put everything out of whack. With one of those things being sports the Razorbacks have struggled in the world of college football for some time now and the Covid crisis has not done any favors for the Hogs.
The Hogs record does the team no justice because the Razorbacks had a very tough schedule and played some good teams back-to-back some weeks and were even robbed of a few games that we as fans will not mention any longer. A couple of games were decided by late game calls and last second clutch field goals that ultimately went in favor to the opposing teams. Take those away and the Razorbacks record would have been closer to an above .500 record.
The Hogs did well for having a new offensive and defensive coordinator as well as a new head coach. The team was unable to build real chemistry before the season due to not having spring practices. This was also the Covid year and while some fans may disagree; the Razorbacks had 3 SEC wins this season and that is the equivalent to what they’ve had in the past 3 seasons combined so that is a win for the Razorbacks.
While this may not hold as much importance as the other reasons, the Razorbacks have an athletic director that isn’t afraid to pull the trigger; The hogs athletic director has been in his position for only 3 years and it is a good sign that Hunter Yurachek is making big moves fast. From the looks of the changes he has made in football and basketball alike, the Razorbacks look to be in good hands all around in every sport.
Razorback fans should be excited for what is to come. Keep an eye on them Hogs. Woo Pig Sooie!
