What’s funny is that while Alabama is certainly the undisputed king of the SEC hill as of today, it’s entirely possible that won’t be the case as soon as, oh, Saturday. Because the team with the “highest ceiling” among the other 11 schools is Arkansas, and the Tide have quite a chore ahead of them in beating them in the biggest game Fayetteville will have hosted in eons.
Why the Hogs? Because no SEC running or passing game has the potential to be as unstoppable as Arkansas’s air attack. The Hogs have a surefire NFL first-rounder at quarterback, the SEC’s best corps of receivers and tight ends, and a veteran line; if Mallett is on his game (and his inconsistency has been far and away the biggest thing holding him back), they really might be unstoppable.
