Arkansas Morning is Here

The importance of today’s game cannot be overstated. Win and you make a bowl game, lose and the season could end badly. There really is no middle ground. The Cats have come to a point in the football season where they have to make a choice as to whether they are a middle-tier team in the SEC, or whether they are one of the celler dwellers for the season. Arkansas, a team that could be the worst in the conference, is a team you HAVE to beat at home to have any chance of being considered a middle-of-the-pack bowl team. Throw in the fact that “Official former Louisville coach and consumate liar” Bobby Petrino is the coach, and victory is imperative.

Do I think the Cats will win? I do, likely by a touchdown or so. After opening at 11, the line has been bet down to seven, which strikes me as being just about right. The Gamecocks have put yardage up in all their games, but have had trouble getting into the endzone until the Auburn game. I will chalk that success up to the team in turmoil in Auburn and less to a miraculous turnaround for the Hogs. But I do think the Cats are vulnerable to some offensive problems and the game will stay tight throughout. Make it 20-13 and take the under.

Evan will be manning the ship for much of the day as we focus on all things Hogs. Stay tuned, and get ready for an important night in Commonwealth……
