What's up everybody,
Clemson fan here. Since we both had Danny Ford and Ken Hatfield as head coaches. I was wondering, looking back, who do Arkansas fans hold in higher regard, Ford or Hatfield?
I'll give you a little background first on why this would interest me and some other Clemson fans.
For Clemson fans, Danny Ford is an icon and widely regarded as the most successful coach in Clemson history because he led us to our only National Championship in '81 and also under his guidance, we were the 5th winningest program of the 80s. It's been a long 20 years for us since he was forced to resign.
Ken Hatfield was the man who replaced the man at Clemson and is commonly regarded by Clemson fans as a mistake of a hire that ended the most successful run in Clemson history.
It occurred to me that, living in South Carolina, this might not be the sentiment of Arkansas fans at all. In fact, it could justifiably be the opposite for Razorback fans. So, I'm just curious as to what ya'll think and how you remember these two coaches. Thanks for indulging me and good luck this year! We Clemson fans will be pulling for you on on November 5th.
