Ole Miss hired Lane Kiffin, and Mississippi State landed Mike Leach.

Nick, Coach O, Gus, Jimbo – the rest of the SEC West head coaches have national championships on the respective resumés, or at least an appearance in the case of Malzahn.

In terms of star power, Sam Pittman is the antithesis to the rest of the division’s head coaching personalities. For now, that’s just fine.

No one will expect anything out of an Arkansas program that went 0-for-the-Chad-Morris-era against the SEC, and has just five wins over FBS programs over the last three years.

But it’s a young team overall, Pittman nailed the coordinator hires with Kendal Briles for the offensive side and Barry Odom for the D, and for now, he’ll get the benefit of having no expectations whatsoever put on him.

However, in what’s going to be a weird year for everyone, this might just be the type of team that can come up with the right scheme and the right performance on the right day to royally screw up one of the big boys.

Set The Arkansas Razorbacks Regular Season Win Total At … 4

Bet at BetMGM Win Total Line: 3.5

Kent State, Charleston Southern, and ULM have to be wins. The other non-conference game is at Notre Dame, and the Hogs are going to be big underdogs against everyone in the SEC.

Can they beat Ole Miss at home? Can they catch Missouri in the regular season finale, or stun a Tennessee team coming off its date against Alabama?

Four wins with the schemes on both sides of the ball improving as the season goes on – that would be a strong first run for Pittman.
