Not only did Arkansas get hammered at home by the Crimson Tide, but Arkansas also has to deal with some serious fallout from the ordeal.
While John L. Smith's halftime interview sounded lighthearted and a little frustrated, it's already garnering some negative attention from folks around the web with video titles such as "Another Embarrassing John L. Smith interview." (That's the title of the featured video here via YouTube.com.)
Making the assumption that he was being lighthearted, there's still a problem there. Smith sounded like he was going to go into the locker room and say, "Come on, guys! We got this!"
That's not the attitude you need from the head coach of a team that has just successfully imploded. You need the "If you won't do your job, there are recruits lined up who will" approach. Of course, if this continues, the recruits may not be lined up at all.
On top of those two things, Tyler Wilson separated himself from the rest of the team by accusing the members on the field of giving up.
While Wilson believed everything he said and wants to take responsibility as a leader of the team, the bottom line is that he wasn't out there. He doesn't know how good the 'Bama defense was. He doesn't know how frustrating it was to have nothing work for you on the field that day.
This may actually get worse for the Hogs before it gets better. My sympathy is with him for having to watch that happen to his team and not be able to do anything about it.
This may be the moment in his life that he learns you need to leave emotion at the door when there are cameras in your face.
