Saturday Roulette: How Much Can Texas A&M Score On A Dumpster Fire ... Er ... Arkansas?

by Doc Harper 9/28/2012 8:30 am

Did you know the term “dumpster fire” can become a cliché? It’s true. If you’ve seen almost any article written about the Razorbacks over the last few weeks, there’s a 100 percent chance you’ve seen the term as a description of the Arkansas football program. It’s to the point that some writers have begun to apologize to “burned out dumpsters.” After all, it’s not like other things can’t catch fire and would also be accurate metaphors for the Razorbacks. How’s about a junkyard fire? Or a port-o-potty fire? However, when the dumpster fire is shown in graphic, photoshop form, it is quite hilarious. Fortunately, there are other programs we can focus on, and bet our fantasy dollars on.

Arkansas avoided a loss at Ole Miss. But the Razorbacks couldn’t avoid slipping in the BCS standings. A 29-24 victory against the Rebels wasn’t enough for Arkansas (6-1, 2-1) to maintain its spot in the BCS. Now the Razorbacks are No. 10, failing to move up in a week two Top 10 teams lost.

Saturday Roulette: Houston Nutt's Mixtape For Sad Times In Oxford, Miss.

by Doc Harper 10/21/2011 9:30 am

Around 2006 or 2007, Houston Nutt’s Razorback teams inspired me to burn a CD of songs that would help me wallow in sorrow in the event Arkansas would under-perform and suffer a heartbreaking defeat. After seeing the despair radiating off Nutt in his Monday press conference, I began to wonder if he had songs he listened to for comfort in these difficult times, and if so, what would they be? Since this is Ole Miss week, Saturday Roulette will include a song with each pick that we imagine is featured on Nutt’s sad times mixtape (I believe he still uses mixtapes).

Saturday Roulette: Will Hogs Avoid Tune-Up Doldrums? Will Nutt Improve Against Vandy?

by Doc Harper 9/16/2011 10:00 am

Last week’s picks proved to be so spectacular I only regretted that I have but one fantasy bank account to bet on college football games. Last week’s picks notched a 7-0-1 record, which means we won enough that we can celebrate through the Razorbacks’ final tune-up game and recover in time for the beginning of the season next week.
