Ex-Hog RB Davis Isn’t Buying Ex-Coaches’ “They Quit” Claims

gfx - they said itOnce ex-Arkansas assistants Bobby Petrino, Paul Haynes, and ex-interim head coach John L. Smith suggested to The Sporting News that some members on the 2012 Razorbacks quit, it was only a matter of time before one of those players responded.  Ex-Razorback running back Knile Davis — a player named as a potential quitter by the story’s author – took to Twitter with these comments:

 

“The same guys who sacrificed their time and freedom.  The same guys who gave their blood sweat and tears for that hog on the side of that helmet.  The same guys who skipped an opportunity of a life time by not entering the draft and came back knowing the risk.  The same guys that battled to get a win in the liberty bowl in the freezing cold.  The same guys that battled to get the schools first BCS birth in the Sugar Bowl.  The same guys that fought and won the Cotton Bowl.  These same guys quit on one of the most anticipated seasons in Arkansas history?!  I don’t think so.  Not these guys.  Not my guys.  #HAWG 4 LIFE”

 

For guys like Davis who are working to improve their draft stock, the ex-coaches’ comments couldn’t have come at a worse time.  Davis won’t just be asked by NFL scouts about his rehabbed foot.  He’ll also be asked about his heart.

Way to go Davis. Its hard on twitter to sound articulate, passionate and well versed, but you swung and hit the ball right back at the pitchers mound, and hard.

 

I like this guy. And he's right. I'd give him an interview.

True but I doubt NFL scouts would put much stock into the words of L Smith and Mini Petrino. The guy that needs to be worried is Tank Wright, who elected to miss the last 7 games to get some kind of surgery. Paul Haynes all but named him by name in his interview. But then again will the scouts care, since Haynes probably doesn't even know the difference between a Cover 2 and a Cover 3?
