Van Horn is the Man!!!

Van Horn is the Man!!! 


I have read some posts about the baseball team and just wanted to post some facts to clear it up.

The Razorbacks have made 13 straight regionals. One of only 7 teams to do so. Cal State Fullerton, Florida State, Miami, North Carolina, Rice, and South Carolina being the other six teams.

Van Horn has made a regional all 11 years since taking over at the helm!!!

Arkansas has won 3 of their last 6 regionals, and 2 of their last 3 super regionals. Arkansas has posted a 15-7 record in the last 6 regionals including two 3-0 marks in regionals both on the road.

In Van Horn's tenure we have won the West 3 times, One conference championship, 3 trips to the world series, and have averaged over 40 wins a season in that time.

Of Arkansas' 27 regional appearances Van Horn is responsible for 11. And of the 7 World Series appearances He has 3 of them!!!

Pretty sure calls to fire him were a joke.  DVH might be the best coach we have at the entire UA.

How many of those other six teams have won National Championships?

Love the Diamond Hogs. Gonna be interesting to see how the new ball next year changes the way DVH will have to approach the game in the future. Last few years we have been predominantly pitching and small ball. He has a really good class signed if he can just get em to the Hill.

I know it will never be like before the ball change but I am hoping with the lower seam ball teams can increase run production by 3 a game.  I love offense.  I am not a 1-0 type fan.  I would much drether see a 8-7 game.  I think there are several fans like me also.

Cal State last won in 2004, Rice only has 1 in 2003, Miami hasn't won since 2001, and FSU and UNC don't have any.  In fact, the whole ACC doesn't have any since Miami's came before they joined the ACC.  Saying Van Horn needs to go because he doesn't have an national championship is laughable.

You forgot about South Carolina. I never said I wanted him gone. Just not excited as everyone else about mediocrity.

Re: Van Horn is the Man!!! 


So you are saying that unless a NC is won a team is mediocre?....Hmmm

If we had been to a bowl game every year since 2003, won an SEC title, won the west 3 times, Played in 3 BCS bowl games and averaged 10 wins a season over that span would you call our football program mediocre?

If we would have made the NCAA tourney 12 years in a row in Basketball, 3 final fours, the sweet sixteen 6 times, SEC title, and averaged 25 wins a season  would you call our basketball team mediocre?

Speaking of South Carolina, Van Horn has a very similar level of success as Tanner had through his first dozen years. You know what happened after that. No reason to think that DVH won't win a NC. I don't think mediocrity is an accurate term.

Going to the regionals (at least!) Every season is your description of mediocre? There are 300 schools each season that do not get to do that.  #dammitman

Get a clue.  Find me one person who knows college baseball that would call what Van Horn or anyone at any school with similar number does as mediocre.  Find one article, sound bite, or anything else that states that.  Hope you have a lot of time if you go looking.
