FYI: LSU @ Arkansas Replay Sat.

I was channel surfing last night and there was a SEC rewind game, UGA Vs. USC, on CBS College Sports. I went into the guide and noticed a ton of SEC replays on CBSCS in the coming week. The only highlight for Hog fans is the replay of the battle for the Golden Boot on Saturday night at 8:30pm CST and 12:15am CST Sunday Morning. If you want to relive the Miracle on Markham 2 set those DVRs.

FTB: Annual Report Card: Petrino Barely Passes

This Week From The Bench…

With the firing of Houston Nutt (and I was years ahead of the mob in
calling for his firing, by the way), new coach Bobby Petrino came in
with high expectations from the fans for a dynamic aerial assault. What
we got was a 5-7 team with a defense that gave every other team a great
opportunity to pad its offensive stats. While the sports columnist of
the statewide daily and the marks on the Internet paint a
sunshine-pumping picture, let’s be honest that Petrino’s first year
was not a success. In my annual tradition, it’s time to let the grades
roll on Petrino…

FTB:Time for Constructive Thinking on Improving Home Advantage

This week from the bench…

In the flurry of responses that I got last week from my column pointing out the glories of War Memorial Stadium and how improbable victories are found there, many took umbrage to it.

Games in War Memorial Stadium are labeled for history with descriptors such as the Immortal Teddy Barnes Catch or the Miracle on Markham. Games in Fayetteville, meanwhile, are most noted by the Great Shootout, which was the most heart-breaking loss in Razorback history.

FTB:Crowd Always Ready to Bring it in War Memorial

This Week From The Bench…

And it starts again. Bobby Petrino, in his first year as head coach, is undefeated in Little Rock.

All the previous Razorback coaches of any worth post-Broyles all stayed undefeated in Little Rock for some time. It took four seasons before Lou Holtz lost his first game in Little Rock. The same can be said about Ken Hatfield. Houston Nutt took seven seasons before the first loss came. Beginning in 1998, the Hogs have defended the home turf of War Memorial Stadium to the tune of 24 wins and two losses. That is an amazing winning percentage of more than 92 percent.

FTB:Bowl Game Aint Gonna Happen for Hogs

This week from the bench…

After the South Carolina, blaming the starting quarterback would be too easy, just as giving him too much credit this season has been too easy for all those who said Houston Nutt held him back while snapping the ball to Darren McFadden too many times last year. The starting QB has thrown interceptions at too brisk of a pace for this team to have any success. But the problems of this team are very broad.

FTB:Missing the Shenanigans of Houston Nutt

This week from the bench…

If you were/are one of the people who hated Houston Nutt, this is vindication Saturday.

The Razorbacks face Ole Miss this weekend, and it will be the hardest ticket to get in Fayetteville since Texas came to town in 2004 to hand the Hogs a two-point loss, which is appropriate since Ole Miss will now assume the mantle as Arkansas’ chief rival and the game that the fans circle on the calendar. “Ole Miss Week” can’t be far behind if the coming circus even comes close to living up to its billing.
