08:19 AM ET 09.25 | If you're wondering what sort of impact the loss of Bobby Petrino has made on 1-3 Arkansas, there may be an instructive lesson at Louisville. [WDRB.com] in Louisville has posted an insightful piece regarding life after Petrino. Louisville returned 10 starters on offense from an Orange Bowl team and finished .500 the year after he left for Atlanta. Is this what we're seeing with the Razorbacks? ... Arkansas thought it could ward off some of the issues by keeping Petrino's staff and schemes in place. These are his coaches, much of it is his plan. But something obviously has changed. We hear players talk lately of a lack of attention to detail being their downfall. Well, we've never known anybody more detail-oriented than Petrino.

Hoggie, you need to drink some more of the SEC kool aid or they are going to revoke your SEC homer card.

Arky fans never got a real SEC homer card. They have had learner's permits for 20 years.

Michael Jenkins ???@michaeljenk Pete Carroll just won something illegally. This is not new. John Walters ???@jdubs88 Pete Carroll has been on the right end of both the Bush Push and now the Fail Mary. Win Forever, indeed.

I would agree except it was Golden Tate on the receiving end so it must have been a TD.

B. Petrino was very good at calling offensive plays and exploiting defensive weakneses. That's the big issue on offense.

Can't argue with the truth. Between poor tackling and the number of defenders that end up on the ground is sad.
