Chad Morris bragged of the speed with which his offense would operate. There was this incredulous moment at which the used and dingy Buick Skylark that represents Razorback football would suddenly veer into the passing lane and the Skylark would accelerate appreciably.

Here's the trailer for Netflix's upcoming "Dolemite Is My Name" film, starring Eddie Murphy as Arkansas native . It'll have its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and then come to Netflix sometime in the fall.
Before we get into the meat of the 2019 schedule and assess whether Chad Morris’ second season on the sideline will be demonstrably better than his forgettable first one, we deal with the usual array of burning questions about the program as it tries to once again rescue itself from the dregs of the SEC.
