Nutt: It's the players' fault

A couple of quotes from yesterday's press conference pretty much shows where Nutt believes the blame lies:

"The one thing that stood out is, boy, just the lack of execution," Nutt said.

Nutt said he had an idea that Saturday might not go so smoothly after watching his players stumble through a practice earlier in the week. That lack of concentration followed the Razorbacks (3-2, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) to Little Rock.

"(The players) thought they could just roll that Razorback helmet out there in front of a great crowd and do exactly what they did against North Texas," Nutt said. "It just doesn't work that way."

It continues to amaze me that he doesn't ever, ever, publicly take blame for a bad performance. Even if he didn't believe it, you'd think that he'd do it from time to time. Although at this point, no one's opinion of him would be changed anyway so it might not be worth bothering.

whatever Logan - you know it's the player's fault for "not executing" and the fan's fault for not "stepping up" a as the 12th hawg... I'm tired of this drunken gibberish from you! When are you people going to learn that it is not Houston's fault? The buck does not stop anywhere near the Broyles complex or the right Reverend. It clearly lies in the athletic dorms with Ben Cleveland and Marcus Monk for not being able to play hurt.

HD is so consistently arrogant it is absolutely amazing to me. Sometimes I wonder if the players wouldn't be better WITHOUT a coach...I think the quarterback could draw plays with a stick in the dirt more productively than whatever is happening right now.
