Granted the 180.5 rushing yards per game are 38th nationally and rank No. 8 in the SEC need to improve. And we’d like to see Chris Gragg and Greg Childs stretch defenses a little deeper. How about a few more runs or maybe even a pass from wide receiver Joe Adams? That would be a nice touch.

We all know that just because we don’t see it now, doesn’t mean it’s not coming. Arkansas has enough in its arsenal to make folks look foolish for weeks to comes.

Troy Coach Larry Blakeney knows enough about Arkansas from this year and in remembering back to a 56-20 loss to the Razorbacks in 2009, to offer a compliment that is simple, but stands as high praise whether we're talking play-calling or joke-telling:

“It's what everybody tries to do, but they do a good job.”

What we've seen from the Razorback offense so far — even at its most basic — is no laughing matter.
