The Arkansas Razorbacks are having one of the toughest seasons on record. The team lost their coach in a scandal, lost players to injuries and arrests, and are losing on the field.

The Razorbacks have become an afterthought in the SEC West and they have no shot at a BCS berth. Just when you thought it could not get any worse, it did.

Matt Jones reported via Twitter that senior linebacker Arkansas linebacker Terrell Williams was arrested on a DWI charge Sunday morning.

More on the arrest from Whole Hog Sports:

Williams, 21, was also charged with driving left of the center lane and violation of Arkansas' implied consent law. He was booked in the Washington County jail at 4:07 a.m. after being arrested by Fayetteville police. He posted $910 bail at 9:13 a.m. and has a hearing scheduled for Monday morning.

This is another black eye for a football program that has had eight players arrested since March.

Williams is a productive player on defense and as a senior, he should have better judgment. It would be ridiculous to not hold Williams responsible for this crime; however, this is just another example of how the entire environment needs to change at Arkansas

There is no leadership on this team.

The players are playing for nothing more than draft stock or future aspirations. The players have realized that they can play for a big stat line because no one else seems to care. The coaches are all lame ducks and realize that they will be elsewhere next year.

The time for the Razorbacks to change is now, not the end of the year. The football program is an embarrassment. It all starts with the leadership, and right now, this team is void of any structure.

The fans deserve more, the students deserve more, and the Arkansas Razorbacks deserve more.
