He did put up some very impressive stats during his time at SMU. Will be interesting to see if he can earn the starting job under Morris and whether he can actually compete at the SEC level.

He couldn't compete the AAC. He will not compete in the SEC

couldnt compete outside of having the career record for 300 yard games? All of this “hicks can’t play” bull I is getting old. Yeah, he was streaky and inconsistent, but I seriously have to question anything and everything you say when you make a statement about a guy who passed for almost 10,000 career yards in 3 seasons not being able to compete at the conference level he was playing at.

while our running game ended the year with a series of games with 30, 50 and about 70 yards rushing which was also obviously Ben Hicks' fault

His success at Ark will have everything to do with the following question:

Will Hicks have more time in the pocket w Ark line vs. SEC opponents than he did with SMU line vs. AAC opponents.

If Hicks has good blocking and future NFL type of receivers making circus catches for him, then he is adequate.

"Stats are for losers" - Bill Belichick.

He was not good. Could have had even bigger stats had he seen open receivers every play instead of Courtland Sutton bailing him out in double and triple coverage.

At least Gilbert was not afraid to run with the ball and score TDs unlike Hicks who would fall down by himself
