As someone who lived through what that man can do to a solid program I feel for you guys. That was a gosh darn coaching mistake if I ever saw one.

The kids were playing their tail off, and the coaches were screwin' it up!
He did it to MSU for three years.
At least he'll only do it to the Hogs for one (possibly less) until your AD replaces him.
Good luck riding the storm out.

Tonight was just more classic JLS, such as this moment after one fateful loss:
WHY did you guys hire JLS?
What the hell? Arkansas deserved this. The ONE guy you don't hire to be a caretaker for a year is John freaking Elle.

beat us up... us hiring that fricking clown makes us actually the hillbilly idiots that people make us out to be nationally.
its all true.. pile it on now while you can.. we will be back someday.. we all donate too much money for this not to be true.
Home is where the heart is. This is a map of mine.
that's a dang coaching mistake!
We aren't beating you up. We are sympathizing with humor. All MSU fans have felt what you are going through right now. Look at how Michigan State has rebounded after firing JLS and hiring Mark Dantonio. Better days are ahead.
I can't really speak for the rest of the Spartans here, but I'm personally offering condolences.
What we as a fan base went through for four years was lots of these types of moments.
Upshot for you is he'll be gone sooner than later and Arkansas can get back to business without slaps, meltdowns and defensive collapses.
OMG, your game brings back VERY, VERY bad memories of the time JLS coached at MSU. Our sympathies on your loss and having to survive him for only one year.
Nίκη για MSU
I thought he was a good guy and also a good coach, but after watching some of the losses his team suffered, I was thankful the fans didn't jump off the upper deck of the stadium. You are playing a 2nd string QB, why not run the ball and shorten the game, you had the lead? Why not run the ball in overtime? Doesn't Smith over get bored watching his QB try to hit imaginary receivers?
All I can do is laugh. I hated the hire from day 1. My worst nightmare has come true.
Thanks for stopping by guys. There are no words.
That game was like watching a time warp - all I had to do was adjust the tint so red became green, and it was like a portal to 2006.
My suggestion: Copious amounts of alcohol.

The positive for you guys is, knowing John L., you'll probably knock off 'Bama next week. Unfortunately, knowing John L., you'll follow that up with a loss to Rutgers.
The real winner tonight is Weber State.
Congratulations Weber State.. well played. Well played.

From the Spartan fan base to the Arkansas fan base....we feel your pain!
No one can field a team that can blow a lead like your coach....believe us we know.
The good news is that I bet which ever spartan owns www.firejohnlsmith.com will sell it to you cheap....that and your AD doesn't have to worry about deciding if he should keep him, and can start a search right away.
Ha! Post of the century.
Another Michigan State fan here chiming in. I feel your pain (if you will allow me to borrow the expression made famous by one your state's favorite sons). This year with JLS will not be fun, in fact it will be quite excruciating, but after you get rid of him at the end of the season, life WILL improve. At least you won't have to suffer through four seasons of his incompetent goofiness, as MSU fans did. Hang in there!
