Auburns inept offense ruined the Sugar Bowl. (Yeah, I know, Arkansas refusal to play after halftime ruined the Belk). Joe Mixon is just one of many thugs playing on Saturdays in this wonderful era in which we live. Remove all the thugs, no body has a two deep anymore. That being said, as far as Mixon himself, I sure as hell don't want him dating my daughter. I doubt he will ever change. Should he get a second chance? Not up to me. Or Brent, or John C. If it were up to me? Bastid woulda been watching the game from home. Perhaps Brent should have watched the Rose and like the team who called that game, never actually mentioned the atrocities themselves, and skirt the issue as is popular in our PC society. But Mixon didn't ruin the Sugar. He played football. He played it quite well. The question isn't his ability to play the game, it's does he deserve to play it. I'd say no, but my opinion doesn't count.
Fat boy will be back for 17. No way he gets the ax after 3 straight bowl appearances. Mediocrity is acceptable under Jeff Long. Unless we can get him to poke an intern then have a wreck he may be here for quite a while.
How to beat Bama... Score at least one more point than they do.... Not an easy task, considering that the person who picks up dirty jock straps in the locker room after the game was 5-stars in high school, or their scout team could beat a mid major teams starters. How do you run the ball against a front seven who eats raw horse flesh laced with gun powder and glass shards as a pregame meal? How do you throw the ball with a rush end drooling in your face after pounding you two inches deep into the turf?
4-3 or 3-4, our D is a joke. I don't see that changing by Thursday. Dan Skipper will probably commit a dumb penalty which costs us big, AA will get picked on 3rd and goal, Coach B will go on 4th down (and get stuffed) when a fg could keep momentum flowing, AA will pass for 300 and RWIII will rush for 150, yet we will still lose, for we are Arkansas, it's what we do.
Comment on TV schedule, announcers for SEC bowl games
is it just me, or does she sound like a less exaggerated Pat from the old SNL sketches? That being said, if you can get past the voice, she does call a good game imho.
Comment on Clay Travis suggests bold hire for LSU
Just a thought, but college ball and the coaching carosel there-in is such a fickle, what have you done for me lately endevour anymore. An hour prior to kick off Coach O was the greatest thing out of Louisiana since Jerry Lee Lewis, but since he couldn't beat a team that the last 20 teams said team has played couldn't beat, he's no longer a candidate. I'm not saying LSU shouldn't consider anyone else, but don't eliminate Coach O from the running just because he couldn't beat Bama. If beating Bama is the sole criteria used to determine who the next head coach should be then the only candidates that meet it are Hugh Freeze or Urban Meyer...... Kiffin??? Hmmmmm. It would be worth a shot. I'd have a back up plan though.
Gene, Peter, Ace and Paul all hate you now.......
Me too, but my wife would take issue, she's a ****cough cough***** Bama fan. Is an Elephant and a Hog considered a mixed marraige?
Comment on SEC bowl projections after Week 10
Must admit Coozmiester, after watching young Mr Fitzgerald mature into the type of QB the Hogs D HATES to try and deal with, I have erased the W I had penciled in for State and replaced it with a question mark. This game could well be a shoot out with 60 to 100 points combined and may come down to whoever has the ball last... After saying that, watch it be a 13-10 game.
I prefer buffoon.
I dunno. I think Aubie would have handed us our a$$es today even if lane kiffin was calling O and John chafis was calling D. they killed us at both lines. we caused no negative yardage plays on D and our O line couldn't have kept my grandma out or our backfield.
my thoughts exactly. but also have to ackno
Comment on Austin Allen most-pressured QB in the nation
The AA situation puts me in mind of a quote from Rocky II wherein Apollo Creeds train or tells him, "I seen you beat this man like I never seen anybody get beat, and HE KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! We don't need that kind of man I in our lives."
you Vols took our title away. we were the heart attack hogs two seasons running. but you guys have taken that idea to a new level. I understand they will be passing out nitro tablets at Neyland this weekend. I know you guys would love to win one that doesn't involve ot or hail Mary. you would probably love to see your second string guys in the fourth qtr. for a change. unfortunately this will not be that game. but you do have an element that plays in your favor. Bama has historically had problems with dual threat guys. tell Burch to let Dobbs play his game. AA passed for 4 c notes while running for his life vs the vaunted tide d last week. Dobbs is at his best when on the edge, plus he is a threat to tuck it and take off (where AA was not). run up the gut every now and again to keep em honest, but bear in mind that front seven of theirs will gnaw your legs off when you do. good luck. but you guys seem to have a store room full of that commodity.
p.s... hope I'm wrong and WPS
Our defense is porous vs the run. Dual threat qbs feast on us this year, and to top it off Dre G is out for at least a month. Swag rushes for 100+. Colonel Bear gets revenge. Rebs 42 Hogs 28.
I got that impression too. AA makes nfl throws while running for his life. Yet to hear Bama tell it AA was "gifted" those 400 yards. SMDH. ...
they better start scoring before the first quarter if they wanna beat bama. if they put up 21 points before the opening kickoff they may out score bamas defense.
possible wins- ms state, zou, fla. probable wins - none at this point. best case - 7-5 and mid tier bowl. worst case- alcorn was our last win. our defense is a sieve and we can't run the ball. aa is one tuff basterd but he can't survive double digit hits the rest of the season. our o line needs to grow up fast, other wise they are gunna get the best pro style qb in the league annihilated. note. this isn't a slam on the team, the coach, or anyone in the organization. the Hogs are doing the best they can with what they have. but the truth is, we are ARKANSAS, we don't rebuild, we don't reload, we start from scratch every September.
