...I wanna start previewing the Arkansas game. But, I can't find any freakin site that wants to start talking about it. On Monday, everybody wants to relive the past weekend. There was nothing interesting about this past weekend. Auburn is bad. Mississippi State is worse. Ohio State is bad. USC is bad-ass. Alabama is good. Western Kentucky is bad. See? There's nothing interesting about it.
Which leads me to wanting to start talking about the Tide's first true road test of the season.
Casey Dick has thrown for 641 yards in 2 games, which is almost unheard of at Arkansas. They're averaging 320 yards per game passing, but only 129 yards rushing...and that's against Western Illinois and Louisiana-Monroe. Not good. They're giving up 187 yards per game through the air, and over 125 ypg on the ground.
That's right. Against Western Illinois they gave up 157 rushing yards on 46 attempts, and only 105 yards through the air on 10 completions. Had Western Illinois been a halfway decent team, they'd have beaten the Hogs. Against Louisiana-Monroe, the Razorpigs gave up 71 yards rushing on 26 attempts, and 270 yards passing on 23 completions.
Their defense doesn't look to be very dominant, and their offense is having trouble scoring on ULM and Western Illinois.
However, you can never tell about these games. Arkansas, thanks to Hurricane Ike, now gets a week off before playing us, which can't be a good thing, unless they're rusty.

Yeah, but they didn't get any extra practice time, since the game wasn't postponed until Friday. And they have to worry about playing Texas next week, so they don't want to forget too much. # posted by Mac : 5:51 PM
