I was foturnate to witness college footbal history last Saturday night in Arkansas.
35 carries for 323 yards from the great Darren McFadden, an SEC record!
The Hogs ran for 541 yards!!! That’s right 541 yards against another SEC team! Even though the lame Spurrier’s played defense like a D. III school. D-Mac joined Georgia’s Herschel Walker as the only SEC players to run for 1,000 as a freshman, sophomore and junior.
It was a perfect Fall evening football and Hogs pleased the faithful. During halftime, ceremonies were held to dedicate the naming of the field to retiring AD Frank Broyles. Former NFL player and Hogs radio analyst Keith Jackson and longtime ABC broadcaster Keith Jackson did the honors emceeing the event. Over 200 former Razorbacks, including Jerry Jones, Barry Switzer, and others were on hand for the glorious occasion.
SEC Picks for this week:
Hogs vs. Tenn.–my gut says the Vols are the pick at home, but I’m going with the D-Mac show to roll the Vols and further ignite the Vol nation.
Bama vs. Miss. St.–Sly Croom picks off the Tide in Starkville!
Kentucky vs. Vandy–I like the Cats here, but it will close
Auburn vs. UGA–This should be a dandy between the hedges. I will go with the Richt bunch, I wonder if they celebrate as a team in the endzone after a touchdown?
Fla. vs. S.C.–Gators chomp Spurrier and the Gamecock misery continues.
Congrats to NAVY for ending the streak!
It’s for McNair to sit, start Boller!
Last night’s debacle in Pitt. was an embarrasment to anyone who loves the Ravens. McNair is not the same QB as last year, he is obviously hampered by the groin and back injuries.
MD Terps are hapless and we need a miracle to make a bowl this year. Fridge has alot of work ahead to get this team back on track.
