Not as bad as having your coach suck...... You get the idea
Barry Lunney Jr
He's a well known Arkansas high school coach. He's a former Hog QB, and his dad was also a famous Arkansas HS coach. I think BB hired him to have an "in" with other high school coaching staffs.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
Didn't you just say Bret sucked?
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Here ya go if you wanna read:
Barry Lunney Jr., a former UA letterman and graduate assistant coach, was named Arkansas' tight ends coach on Jan. 15, 2013.
Lunney most recently has served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Bentonville High School since 2005. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Arkansas before coaching at Tulsa and as the co-offensive coordinator at San Jose State.
In his eight years at Bentonville, the Tigers won 78 games, including 25 straight in 2010-11, played in four state championship games, claiming state titles in 2008 and 2010, and won six straight 7A West Conference crowns from 2007-12. Bentonville played in each of the last three 7A state championship games and won at least 12 games in four of the last five seasons.
Bentonville quarterback Dallas Hardison broke the Arkansas state single-season completion percentage record in 2010 and bettered the record in 2011 under the direct guidance of Lunney. In 2011 and 2012, the Tigers won their first 12 games to advance to the state championship game with an offense that averaged 42.5 and 36.8 points per game, respectively.
The 2010 Bentonville team finished the season 13-0 and won the 7A state championship. The offense averaged 47.0 points per game and scored at least 40 points nine times, including 49 points in the semifinal round and the state championship game. In 2009, the Tigers averaged 38.5 points per game and scored more than 40 points in six games while advancing to the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs and finishing with a 9-2 overall record.
Lunney's first state title at Bentonville came in 2008 as the Tigers won 12 games for the first time since 2001. The offense averaged 30.2 points per game and scored more than 30 points in seven of 13 games. In 2007, Bentonville won the first of its six straight conference crowns and advanced to the semifinal round of the state playoffs behind an offense that averaged 31.1 points per game. The 2006 Tigers qualified for the state playoffs for the first time since 2001 as the offense averaged 34.2 points per game. In 2005, Lunney's first year in charge of the Bentonville offense, its per-game scoring average improved by more than 20 points from the previous year.
Before moving to the high school coaching ranks, Lunney compiled seven years of collegiate coaching experience. His coaching career began with two seasons as a graduate assistant at Arkansas. In 1998, Arkansas won its first eight games and rose to No. 9 in the national rankings on the way to sharing the SEC Western Division title and earning a berth in the Florida Citrus Bowl. Lunney served as the Razorbacks' running backs coach for the bowl game and throughout the spring of 1999. Arkansas spent the majority of the 1999 season in the top 25 of the national rankings and finished the year with a 27-6 win over No. 14 Texas in the Cotton Bowl.
After his time as a graduate assistant, he spent three seasons at Tulsa, first working with quarterbacks in 2000 and 2001 and then moving to wide receivers in 2002. In 2000, quarterback Josh Blankenship, who was named to the conference's all-academic team, ranked fifth in the WAC in total offense and receiver Don Shoals led the conference and ranked 11th in the NCAA in receptions per game.
Lunney was hired from Tulsa to be the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at San Jose State. In his two seasons there, the offense produced six all-conference performers, and tight end Courtney Anderson was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the 2004 NFL Draft. In 2003, the Spartans ranked 17th in the NCAA in passing offense and quarterback Scott Rislov ranked third in the WAC in passing efficiency and total offense.
As a player for the Razorbacks, Lunney lettered from 1992-95, starting 40 games at quarterback, and was a team captain on the 1995 team that played in the SEC Championship Game for the first time in school history. In his first game as the starting quarterback, he led Arkansas to an upset win at No. 4 Tennessee. He left Arkansas holding UA career records for passing yards, passing touchdowns, pass completions, pass attempts and total offense plays. Lunney also played baseball at Arkansas. He was drafted by the Montreal Expos out of high school in 1992 and by the Minnesota Twins in 1996 and played one season of minor league baseball in the Twins organization.
Lunney graduated from Arkansas in 1996 with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology. He and his wife, Janelle, have two sons, Luke and Levi. His grandfather, John lettered at Arkansas from 1946-49.
Well then stealing him will do UW no good. Damn it
Too many words, bruh.
Kid can't handle anything more than a paragraph at a time, and no words with more than two syllables.
at Wiscy stealing a coach from any program outside the WAC.
Did you just compare Melvin Gordon to Adrian Peterson?
Did Adrian Peterson ever run for over 200 yards on 9 carries? This kid is ultra talented man. Just wait. Runs like a deer and carries defenders with him. Just a freak.
Adrian Peterson just won the NFL MVP. Melvin Gordon hasn't started a college game yet. Hold your horses on the comparisons. This is almost as bad as Purp n Gold saying Fournette is the next AP.
You're cute. Mildly retarded, but cute.
so you honestly think this kid doesn't have talent? And will not be at top of the Big Ten next year?
Yup, Wiscy did well to capitalize while we had an interim coach in 2011 and were unable to play in 2012. Bravo, well done. We spotted you a couple of years to give you a jump start. Now if you all can just win the next 17 in a row, by the year 2030 you Badgers will be on our level.
AP also nearly won the Heisman as a freshman, and was an All-American the next two years despite playing hurt through practically the rest of his career at OU.
Wisconsin fans are semi-retarded.
Having talent and being the best RB in the B1G mean much less than being on the same level as Adrian Peterson was.
There is a difference between having talent, and being the most talented RB currently at the highest level of football. Curb your enthusiasm just a bit there champ.
At least Penn State has only been in the conference for 20 years. Wisconsin has been there since 1896, and they STILL only have 14 conference titles. FOURTEEN. In ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN YEARS.
Did he have the best RB in college football history in front of him?
Do you mean Barry Sanders?
No, he went to the other relatively big program in Oklahoma,
Ok, I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, but dude. DUDE. Montee Ball was good, but he is not the best RB in college football history.
Name 1 RB in the Big Ten better than him. Name 1 that will have better numbers, next year, just 1
