Ugh, college football. Can we just pretend that’s not happening today and skip to tomorrow so I can boast about how all my NFL picks from last week worked out? Can we, huh? Pleeeeeeeease?
Arkansas plays Texas A&M this week. I hate all teams from Texas. The last few years we’ve had A&M’s number, but this year Arkansas is in complete disarray. Maybe they’ll do what worked toward the end of the Rutgers game: run a five wide-receiver set for every play and let Tyler Wilson try to outscore our opponent. Because, and I’m being generous here, Arkansas’ secondary couldn’t stop a box turtle.
I’ve also been really hard on John L. Smith. Granted, he’s a terrible coach, but what the hell did Razorback fans expect? Nobody we got was going to be as good as Bobby Petrino, especially not that far into the off season. There was the hope that we had enough talent that Smith couldn’t fuck it up, but clearly we didn’t. At this point I’d say just let him finish out the season.
Hey! Basketball season is coming up!
Points for discussion today: Can Arkansas turn the season around? Which top 25 team loses?
And, of course, use the thread to discuss the games today amongst other godless folk.
