Chad Morris could be first SEC football coach with consecutive 0-8 league records

It's never a good sign when bewilderment becomes a constant in Southeastern Conference football, especially when the calendar flips to November.

That was exactly the case last Saturday at Arkansas, when the reeling Razorbacks were dismantled 54-24 by previously reeling Mississippi State.

"I don't think we showed up today," Arkansas senior linebacker De'Jon Harris told reporters afterward. "I don't know what's going on."

Such comments are hardly words of support for second-year Razorbacks coach Chad Morris, who is 4-17 overall and 0-14 in league games. Those numbers are decidedly worse than the 9-12 record Willie Taggart compiled in 21 games at Florida State before being fired this past Sunday.

Arkansas hosts Western Kentucky this Saturday before having its second open date of the season, but then the Razorbacks must close with games against LSU in Baton Rouge and Missouri in Little Rock.
