FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Hang in there, Arkansas fans. A couple days from now and the TCU game will be but a memory.

That’s the bad thing about having a bye week. Too much time to linger on what happened last instead of looking at what comes next.

We promise it’s almost over. This is one of the last times you will have to hear the word “TCU” again this year. Hang in there.

Arkansas-TCU was a disaster

If you’re looking for a strand of positivity after Arkansas’ 28-7 loss to TCU this past weekend, you have to look mighty hard.

In this week’s “Sound Off,” presented by Zaxby’s, SEC Country Arkansas reporters Eric W. Bolin and Trent Shadid try to find one for you. They also talk about all the negatives and, most importantly, they keep an eye toward the Razorbacks’ next game, in Week 4 in the Southwest Classic against Texas A&M.

You will want to watch the whole thing, but if you’re looking for something in particular, feel free to use the timestamps below.

Start – We start at the obvious part: The state of the state. Arkansas fans are sad, shocked and angry after TCU’s 28-7 win over the Razorbacks on Saturday 2:00 – Just about everything was bad for Arkansas. The defense had its moments, but couldn’t get off the field. How does Arkansas fix it? 4:00 – Maybe most troubling with the offense is that the offensive line is still a bit of a mess. They went through troubles last year and it seems as though those are still lingering this year. 6:30 – Let’s just say it. Arkansas has had a tendency to quit when the going gets tough. That’s a direct reflection of coaching, for better or worse. 9:00 – Why has athletic director Jeff Long stuck with Bielema so long? Look no further than Bobby Petrino. Bielema doesn’t get enough credit for saving this program from the ashes. But that goodwill is running dry.
