    Famous quote by Lou Holtz about his Arkansas head coaching days, "Fayetteville isn't the end of the world, but you can see it from there." It was a better fit in the SW Conference.

    He’s been named head coach according to 247 mods. He could take Chaney with him and do some damage to the Vols.

    He was stacking up 5* o-linemen.

    Can’t wait for the awkward presser arky rolls out every time they hire where we get to see late middle aged men that have no ties or affection for it do that dumbass pig sooey chant. Bielema was priceless, sporting that “wtf are we doin face” while he chanted like it was lord of the flies

    UGly associate head coach and offensive line coach with a reputation as a great recruiter.

    I can definitely see the Dawgs lose a few to the Hogs
    Arkansas hires Georgia's Pittman as head coach

    I wouldn’t surprise me to see us lose a commit or two. I highly doubt any of them will be to Arkansas.

    Sam Pittman is a great OL coach and recruiter. It’s still Arkansas though.

    This is a done deal and imho a huge hit for UGA...Pittman is a fantastic coach and recruiter...this will definitely hurt them...

    If you read the UGA forums they think Pittman is a bigger loss than the LSU game. He’s notoriously an amazing recruiter and OL developer...though this year there have been complaints about the OL not making holes for the run game, though Coley’s scheme is probably not helping. Last year a lot of fans were even thinking to promote him to co-OC to prevent him from being poached.

    Point being: it’s a big loss. Not sure if he’s right at Arky, definitely not a sexy hire and not any HC experience at a high level. Kinda seems like an Adazio IMO.

    No idea if this is good for the Hogs, tho they seem to like the hire, but it hurts Georgia so sounds good to me.

    Huge for the Hogs. Remember when Sam was there Dan Skipper and the boys pounded people. Sam can recruit and develop Oline. Wondering if Braun is now in play. Definite take if he is interested. This is a huge hit to Georgia at Sam’s recruiting abilities are very close to five star

    True, but a big difference between a position coach and a HC. Arky is in a deep talent hole, but he is one of theirs so I'm sure he will get several years to prove himself.
