Ok, now I realize that most of you are not SEC fans, but I also know a few of you are Hog fans.

The game this week is huge, with #1 Bama traveling to Arkansas to face a red hot and #10 Razorbacks' team looking to shock the nation.

Say what you will, but I really think this Arkansas team is vastly improved over last year. All things hinge on Mallet and that defense playing their best, but I love the location in this game.

Ingram coming back really amplifies this one...

What do you guys think about the game and who wins?

I think the Hogs have a good chance of winning, but Alabama may simply have too much for them to handle. I just hope it's a tight match with lots of solid play. Keep the game close and I love Arkansas' chances in the 4th.

I think Alabama is going to wipe the floor with them. Arkansas will get some points, Mallet's too good, but Alabama is a machine on both sides of the ball. I know that Arkansas has been good defensively so far, but we're talking about Tennessee Tech, Louisiana-Monroe and a Georgia team that only scored 6 on South Carolina.

It won't be close. Arkansas is always just a little overrated. They have the most arrogant fans in the world. I didn't meet a single Arkansas fan who gave Mizzou an ounce of respect in the cotton bowl a few seasons ago. All of them were quick to tell me that the SEC is a whole different level and we weren't ready for that style of play. Stupid inbreds. :clap:

My best friend scored me a ticket for my birthday. It's going to be tough, but I think we'll pull it out. My main concern is our inability to establish any kind of running game. I think our defense is much improved over previous years... but I do sort of feel like I felt when watching the Chiefs with Trent. If the Hogs don't score every time we have the ball this week, then we're in trouble.

Yeah, I don't get the Arkansas hatred, but it's pretty rampant.

I certainly didn't think we'd beat Mizzou, because Houston Nutt is a complete idiot in the post season and couldn't get our team to perform worth a shit in any Bowl game. We got stomped by UNLV in a bowl game. U...N....L....V. Good grief. I think the reason that so many Arkansas fans were arrogant about Mizzou was the fact that it was the Cotton Bowl and they thought it was going to be like Fayetteville South (and we have a lot of history with that bowl from the SWC days.)

Alabama wins. Easily, no doubts in my mind. EVEN IF Mallet can put up enough points to hang with 'Bama, the Tide will still put up points themselves on essentially every drive. The two best RB on college football are both on the Crimson Tide.

Good Luck.

All true, but even with if the Hogs had a solid rushing attack... I think we would be in trouble. Mallet will pass a lot in this one, he has to... that is the strength of the offense.

So, play to your strengths - pass to the TEs and RBs when you need a safety valve and don't hold back. That crowd should be AMAZING early on in this one, so never let up.

Alabama is going to be successful - bottom line, there are only a few teams that can truly expect to contain them... maybe, so the Hogs need to go into this one expecting a shootout for 60 minutes.

Well considering the season the two schools had that year I didn't think I would meet too many people saying MU wouldn't come within 3 scores. Instead everyone was saying that, "you might be favored, but you're not ready for SEC ball SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEY" It was something like that. It was hard to understand their inred accent through their crooked teeth. Most "other team" fans I've met actually study the matchup and have a clue about who they're playing. Not Arkansas fans. Arkansas fans don't really believe in football if it isn't played in the old slave fields down south.

I don't think our defense can stop Alabama's running game. Georgia had pretty good success running the ball last week and Richardson and Ingram is tough for anyone to stop.

If the Hogs win it's gonna have to be in a shootout because they ain't slowing down Alabama's offense.

Evidently it was pretty lame at War Memorial against NLU... to the point that Wally Hall mentioned it in his column. That shocks me, because the War Memorial crowd has traditionally been pretty rowdy.

I can't wait for Saturday, though. The atmosphere for the weekend is going to be absolutely insane. The only bummer is that we're having a postgame cookout that evening at a friend's house way out in the country for my birthday. If we win... I'm going to be hard pressed not to hit Dickson (I was there the day we rushed the field against Tennessee and carried the goal post to OBC on Dickson, and I was there the night of the national championship as well).

Man you should have met these Arkansas fans. It's obviously an overstatement to say all of your fans are like this. It's just the bar I went to down there was full of Arkansas fans, and not one of them had a clue what they were talking about outside of SEC football. It's not an inferiority complex. I understand the SEC is the best football conference. Just don't try to use that as your argument when you couldn't compete with the SEC either that year. It would be like an Iowa State fan telling a Gonzaga fan that they don't stand a chance in a basketball game because ISU plays in the Big 12. It just doesn't work.

Most of all I'm excited to watch how Ryan Mallett handle's their defense. This will be a very tough game for him. But this game could also get him drafted in the top 10 if he plays well enough. I hope not, cause I'd love to have him on the Chiefs.

Yeah, most Hog fans I've known are pretty gracious to other fans. I live in Fayetteville, so I get to witness traveling fans interacting with us quite a bit, and we're usually a pretty hospitable bunch. The only exception is Texas. When Texas traveled up here a few years back, I was embarrassed at the behavior of some Hog fans. Yelling "FUck you Texas" and "FUck Texas" and other stuff at random fans walking down the street just isn't cool. The whole Texas hatred tradition has taken on a life of its own that is far beyond the reality of the "rivalry."

Honestly I think Alabama will beat up on them, but I am not that impressed with Arkansas. The SEC is down this year IMO. My ideal NC game would be the Buckeyes against Alabama. As of right now there are no team's that scare me as a Buckeye fan, there is no Florida or SC from a couple years ago, no real team that is head and shoulders above everyone else IMO.

I think the current lofty ratings of many teams are due to the fact CFB seems down this year.

Bama seems in a class by themselves. Not sold on OSU. Miami turned the ball over four times and still hung around most of the game. The number 2 team should have put Miami away.

Although I'm interested to see how Boise does against Oregon State. That game has implications for both them and for TCU.

Not even remotely suggesting their in the same league as Bama, but I've been extremely impressed with South Carolina so far this season.

See I know many people will say I'm just being a homer, but I don't see that happening. Our defense is very very good, probably one of the better defenses we have fielded in a few years. Our offense is much improved also, and I don't think Alabama's defense is as good as they were last year.

That's a road game for us, though, so I'm not expecting anything good...

I'm not so much pessimistic as realistic. I don't see them as being top-25, but they should win 7 or 8. Still have Bowling Green, Michigan State and Illinois at home, games you'd think they should win, and they should compete with Iowa and Wisconsin, too, since they're in the Big House. At Indiana and at Purdue should be winnable (although they blew them both last year...), leaving Penn State and the buckeyes as likely road losses.

If they can get some more recruits on the defensive side and continue to develop backs and receivers to go with the recent QB recruits, they're looking pretty good going forward.

Arkansas has not had a good team in a long time. I have listened to the Kansas/Mizzou BS on here for a long time and never chimed in to say anything that wasn't complimentary. I'm not against either of those teams, but the rest of us have to hear it all of the time and typically, Missouri is my second favorite school so that was fine. But to say that all Razorback fans are arrogant is just a jackass idiotic statement.

Yeah, most Hog fans I've known are pretty gracious to other fans. I live in Fayetteville, so I get to witness traveling fans interacting with us quite a bit, and we're usually a pretty hospitable bunch. The only exception is Texas. When Texas traveled up here a few years back, I was embarrassed at the behavior of some Hog fans. Yelling "**** you Texas" and "**** Texas" and other stuff at random fans walking down the street just isn't cool. The whole Texas hatred tradition has taken on a life of its own that is far beyond the reality of the "rivalry."Probably due to Texas being responsible for destroying the SWC. Pretty much the same thing going on in the Big 12 now. :D

I wonder if Arkansas will employ anything like this:

Florida Gators to go with 5 linemen on defense



GAINESVILLE -- Florida's defensive strategy for attempting to contain Alabama's rushing attack appears to be taking shape.

UF's defense debuted a five-lineman front Saturday against Tennessee and held running back Tauren Poole to 23 yards on 10 carries. Poole entered the game as the leading rusher in the Southeastern Conference.

This Saturday's game against Kentucky will be the new formation's second dress rehearsal before No. 9 UF plays No. 1 Alabama at 8 p.m. on Oct. 2. Kentucky running back Derrick Locke enters this week's game as the SEC's leading rusher, averaging 124.0 yards per game. Florida (3-0, 1-0 SEC) is 23-0 against Kentucky (3-0, 0-0) since 1986.

Florida defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said the success of the five-man front against Tennessee likely earned it a permanent place in the Gators' defensive repertoire.

On Monday, UF coach Urban Meyer said of the five-linemen set: ``We're going to need that down the road.''

``Down the road'' likely means Alabama. The Crimson Tide's backfield features two of the best running backs in the country.

Sophomore Trent Richardson is averaging 6.9 yards per carry through three games and senior running back Mark Ingram returned from arthroscopic knee surgery last Saturday to rush for 154 yards on nine carries against Duke.

Alabama rushed for 272 yards against Florida in the 2009 SEC Championship Game, with Richardson and Ingram combining for 195 yards on 39 carries (5.0 yards per carry). Most of the runs were aimed directly at the center of UF's defensive line and the Gators couldn't stop it.

Florida's new five-linemen package places three defensive tackles on the line of scrimmage. Featured in the formation against Tennessee were senior defensive end Justin Trattou, redshirt junior Jaye Howard, redshirt sophomore Omar Hunter, redshirt senior Terron Sanders and senior Duke Lemmens. Lemmens positioned himself on the strong side of the line throughout the game and finished with five tackles and a sack for minus-6 yards. On Monday, Lemmens was named defensive player of the game.

``It's basically a big set to stop runs,'' senior linebacker Brandon Hicks said. ``We have to be stronger up front, so you're going to put heavy guys in there. We basically just try and line them up against the ball, play to beat their blocks and make a play. It's more of a big set.''

As I kid, I always thought it was hilarious to drive through Hogeye, Arkansas to see the city limits sign that read “Hogeye, Population 26.”
Thanks to some die-hard students at the university, Arkansas’ newest city has more quadrupled the population of Hogeye in under a week.
Tent City, Arkansas is located on Stadium Drive near the University of Arkansas. It is linear in topography, with the city limits beginning near the student entrance to the stadium, and running in a straight line back toward the HPER building on campus.
As of this morning, I’d say there are over 100 people living there, most of the between the ages of 18-23. Residents are transient in nature, replacing each other at various intervals throughout the day and night.
Economic conditions in Tent City seem dire at first glance because most of its inhabitants live in tents, but after talking to some of the residents this afternoon, I’d say that the fine folks of Tent City are living a pretty good life.
“We just pretty much hang out and talk football,” one of the residents told us this afternoon.
“Actually, I’m studying for a test,” said another.
The township was formed Monday morning, has been steadily growing all week. I’d say about 30 canvas domiciles made up the town as of this afternoon.
The natives survive primarily on pizza and soda. On occasion, their diet is supplemented by the generosity of local snow cone vendors, and others from surrounding communities.
For a unique look into the lives of the residents of this fascinating place, please see the below slide show.

Arkansas had the perfect storm of opportunity: at home, offense feeling good about itself, Alabama making more mental mistakes than they will the rest of the season combined. The Hogs still lost.

Props to the Arkansas defense. They played a lot better than I thought they would. DJ Carpenter was getting beaten by the Hogs DE all day. Still, without 'Bama's numerous mental fuckups this game would have been a blowout. The luck evened out when the pressure got to be too much for Mallett.

Well, Saban adjusted well and Arkansas fell a bit flat in the 3rd... much like last week. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Many are bashing Mallet for the picks and yes, they were killers... but Arkansas wouldn't have been in the lead without him, so I think everyone should temper their craziness with reality.

All in all, they played a pretty good game - could have won it and led for a bulk of the game. They showed up well... Bama is #1 and riding a long undefeated streak for a reason.

I'm not willing to give up on Mallet just from that game alone. Alabama is who they are for a reason.

From what I saw he has all the tools you could ever want to see. I saw a lot of really, really nice plays by that kid today. I want to see more of his decision making (ie - watch more games) before I make a final assessment.

The Chiefs are not going to be drafting #1 in the draft after all. So if they draft a QB in the 1st or 2nd, he won't be perfect.

So I'm holding off judgment for now.

Pretty much. In 2008, Matt Staffard was 18/33 265yds 0TDs and 3INTs against Florida. I guess the Lions shouldn't have taken him #1 overall..
