Razorbacks Remove John L. Smith as Head Coach

Opinion, Team FYN Sports

In a move that most expected, Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long announced on Saturday morning that John L. Smith will not return as Razorbacks head coach for the 2013 season.

Smith, who was hired in the spring following the firing of Bobby Petrino, had trouble living up to Razorbacks’ fans’ expectations for the season, leading a team that many expected to make a run for the national championship to a 4-8 record, the most losses the team has had in a single season since 1990.

Long said that the team will retain Smith, who has compiled a 136-93 career head coaching record with stints at Idaho, Utah State, Louisville, Michigan State, and Arkansas, as a consultant for the remainder of his ten-month contract, which expires in February of 2013.

I SEC What You Did There: Predictions on the Nation’s Toughest Conference

Team FYN Sports

SEC Media Days kicked off yesterday in Hoover, Alabama, allowing media members from across the country to ask questions concerning the upcoming season to the conference’s top head coaches and players.

Although the focus is truly on those who actually play a role on the field and on the sidelines on Saturdays in the fall, a bit of the limelight goes to the sportswriters covering the event, who are always polled in order to predict the conference’s champion. The predictions have been generally off, however, as the media has posted an abysmal 4-16 record in doing so (last correct prediction was Florida in 2008).

With the press being off so much in general in regards to SEC play, I took it upon myself to make up for their miscues and release my own predictions on how the Southeastern Conference will play out this season.
