    Randy Shannon:

    FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team's assistant coaches met with the media Sunday to discuss the game week in preparation for Florida. Assistant head coach and defensive line coach Charlie Partridge opened with comments about what it means to play in his home state.


    "I'm very excited," Coach Partridge said. "Obviously, for recruiting it's great to get exposure in that state. We don't even have to say anything. My brother graduated from there. He's going to be at the game. It's a very exciting, personal game for me."
    The Razorbacks have five student-athletes from Florida, and Coach Partridge also noted the emotions for those student-athletes heading home.

    "Any chance you have to go play in your home state, I think there's a personal side to getting ready for this game," Coach Partridge said. "We've just got to keep their emotions under control with Denver (Kirkland) getting his first start and certainly Alex (Collins) doing what he's doing. I think all of the Florida guys are excited to go back home and play in that state."

    Linebackers coach Randy Shannon is also from Florida and spoke about returning to his home state.

    "It's big; it's fun," Coach Shannon said. "It's an opportunity to play against a team that's been known for its football in the state of Florida. But also the atmosphere and the crowd is unbelievable. It's one of those games that's going to be sold out. It's a night game, so that makes it even tougher. It's an opportunity to come back and bounce back and play a big-time opponent."

    Coach Shannon also talked about the benefits to recruiting from traveling to Florida.

    "It's an opportunity that people in the state of Florida see Arkansas play, especially in the Northern part of Florida, and recruit that area and the type of kids to come in and be a part of Arkansas," Coach Shannon said.

    This will help Arkansas more than you will ever know, that is coming into the Swamp and losing again.

    That more than you ever know joke needs to be retired :).

    Make fun of Randy all you want but if Jeff Demps doesn't block a punt near the end of the 4th qtr Tebow and a great Gator team, a NC team I think, might have lost to the Canes that night and that wasn't even a great Miami team.

    It was 9-3, I believe when Demps turned the game around. Miami slowed down a very potent Gator offense that night.

    Ok.

    On the other hand Shannon coached the team that totally quit against Virginia in the last game at the Orange Bowl. UM should have had everything going for them in terms of atmosphere, emotion and a near-patsy opponent. They came up incredibly small, embarrassingly small.

    That's before Meyer told Tim to "go be Tebow" ...after that we went off on everybody averaging over 40 a game

    They were still trying to force TT To be a pocket passer when UM came to town

    Come on, dude, that game ended 26-3. In fact, UF scored enough points in the first quarter to more than double Miami's scoring output for the entire game... give me a break with the "Miami was one tough break away from winning B.S."

    We like to make fun of him but Shannon is not unlike our new WR coach (The Joker). Long tenure at a school and given a chance to be the head coach. Good position coaches and coordinators but just not ready or a good fit for the HBC title. Miami had some nasty defenses when he was an assistant.

    That may be the only time I've made a positive remark about a Hurricane.

    Sure, we can say that about almost any game. if you don't play well, and turn the ball over, you will lose. Obviously we aren't that good yet, so we can't take any team lightly.
