Ah, the greatest season of the year. College football kicks off in just a few more hours. For those of us who endure the rest of the year after football season ends this should be a national holiday.
I’ve got one Fantasy Football draft under my belt and two more to go.
I plan on being in the audience for the first Oklahoma State game this Saturday as they kick off against Washington State.
But most importantly, my Arkansas Razorbacks enter this season with the more excitement than they have had in years. It has been a long slog for us the 2 decades with very few reasons to celebrate.
But now we seem to have turned the corner and things are looking up. Thanks to a top-notch coach (two words for all of you Petrino haters: Bite me), a Heisman-calibre QB and a hopefully improved defense we can seriously compete in the SEC this year.
Here is our schedule and my view of how things should shake out.
Tennessee Tech: An easy win in what should be a statement game for our defense.
Louisiana-Monroe: Another easy win in a primer before a grueling two game stretch that will define our season.
at (23) Georgia: I believe this is a win. George will have a solid team but I dont’ think they can stop our Offense.
(1) Alabama: I think we can surprise here because running the table two years in a row will not be easy for Alabama. Ultimately, though, I expect us to stumble here.
at Texas A&M: This is not a true road game for us as it is played on the Cowboys field in Arlington. We owned A&M last year and I anticipate that staying the same.
at (22) Auburn: Perennially over-rated Auburn should be a victory
Mississippi: Unless Houston Nutt signs some phenom whose parole requirements allow him to stay in Mississippi this should be a win.
Vanderbilt: Why are they in the SEC?
at South Carolina: We could stumble on the road here but we typically do well against them.
Mississippi State: Win
(21) LSU: A Little Rock game. Should be a win.
We have a few that could go either way but we are fully capable of going 10-2 or 11-1.
