Razorbacks vs. Frankfurt Pirates

Razorbacks at Frankfort 045How to write about our 26-24 victory over the Frankfurt Pirates Sunday? Frustrating, maddening, like pulling teeth, difficult for all the wrong reasons. It was probably as unrewarding a win as I’ve been a part of in 25 years of coaching football.
In my last blog I pointed out that this space has dual purposes; to inform the public about my adventure in Europe, and as a voice directly to the Razorback players I coach. There are things I’d like to say to the first audience that wouldn’t be appropriate to publish in my role as a coach. It will have to suffice to say that the conditions we faced on Sunday made it impossible for us to carry out our game plan. I was very happy to leave Frankfurt and very glad we will not play there again.
Beyond the conditions, we did not start well, playing very sloppy football before hitting our stride. I’m mostly proud that, in the end, we were able to overcome the obstacles and come away with a very ugly win. I hope this experience has shown our players that strange things can happen in football and that we can’t take anything for granted. This week we will face our toughest test so far this season, and will have to start much better.
I apologize to my non-Razorback audience for such a vague post. I think the Razorbacks will understand, the rest of you will have to wait for the book. When that comes out it will have a LOT to say about the Razorbacks vs. Pirates!
