When John L Smith was the head coach at Michigan State University he was notorious for his quirky demeanor and the fact that he used to smack players in the face as a term of endearment. If he was a pimp on Sunset that would be a common maneuver but as a head football coach it shocked media and recruits. He was eventually fired from Michigan State in favor for the chronically uptight Mark D’antonio, and he resurfaced as the special teams coach at the University of Arkansas working for his former offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino.
As I am sure many of you know, Bobby Petrino was fired this past off season after getting into an accident on his motorcycle while having his mistress on board. He lied to everyone about the details of the accident including the police and that ultimately led to his dismissal.
While that was obviously a horrific blow to the Arkansas football program that saw them as highly ranked as number 5 in some preseason polls, it was blessing from heavens for all of us who cherish the insane ramblings of a mad man.
John L Smith is like a meth addict from Breaking Bad with a pinch more whiskey in his system. He is never not good television. The guy has no filter or common sense. I wouldn’t trust him with stuff animal let alone my son to coach and mentor. The moment the Razorbacks season ends he will immediately be fired and rumors of Pete Carroll to Arkansas will begin.
