Nutt’s homecoming trumps ’Horns , Tide
My boss wrote a good column a couple of weeks ago. It ranked the games on Arkansas’ 2008 football schedule in terms of importance.
Here’s hoping he believes imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, because I’m basically ripping off his idea. This list comes with a twist, though, not ranking the Razorbacks’ coming games in terms of which is the most important, but which is the most interesting.
Here we go, in reverse order 12. Louisiana-Monroe. Even though this will be Coach Bobby Petrino’s debut at War Memorial Stadium, this game is sandwiched between the season-opener against Western Illinois and the first road game of the season, at a place called Texas. And let’s face it, if the Louisiana-Monroe game is competitive, it’s going to be a long season.
11. Kentucky. Sure, it’s an SEC game, and this looks like one of Arkansas ’ more winnable conference games on paper right now. But getting geeked up for Kentucky should always be saved for basketball season.
