Please Excuse Me For A Moment While I...

Please indulge me while I take a moment to celebrate! Woooooo Pig Sooooooie!!!!!!!!

What a fantastic football game today! Regardless of who won today, the Arkansas vs #1 LSU game was one of the best of the season. LSU is a great football team and they have some incredible athletes, but today, Arkansas played like the best team in the country. For those of you who don't know or are in denial, the SEC is the toughest conference in college football and this season proves it.

To all Razorback fans, you can say what you want about Houston Nutt, but today he showed why he is one of the top coaches in the SEC. The game was coached near perfectly. He got the Arkansas players fired up and ready to come out and beat #1 LSU.

To Houston Nutt, you rocked today!! But make no mistake, the Wild Hog formation (which you have used sparingly this season) was the major factor in our victory today. Don't shelve it for the bowl game.

Darren McFadden may not win the Heisman trophy because of low numbers while he was nursing a rib injury but he is still the best all-around player in college football, bar none. 240 yards of total offense against one of the top defenses in the country. Regardless, he will still be the top pick in next year's NFL draft because he's a franchise.

Much kudos to Peyton Hillis. He played the best game of his career. Also to Felix Jones and Matterral Richardson. And to Casey Dick, who has really solidified as a quarterback these last couple of games.

It's been a rollercoaster year but we ended it by showing who we really are. Looking forward to a great bowl game wherever it may be.
