Saturday Roulette: Texas State Fair Edition; Can Razorbacks Extend Streak To … Two?

by Doc Harper 10/12/2012 9:30 am

Good news! It’s Red River Rivaly Shootout week, which, as mentioned last year, is my favorite non-SEC game of the year. I love the look of the red and orange side by side, two storied programs clashing, and the spectacle of the Texas State Fair surrounding the Cotton Bowl. The fair is known far and wide for its record of innovation and progress in the fried food arts. Like last year, Saturday Roulette will honor that hard work by wagering some of the new fried food debuting at the fair this year in lieu of betting our usual fantasy dollars. We had another good week last week, going 5-3. The season total is 26-21. We’re rolling! Here are this week’s winners:

Saturday Roulette: It’s Okay To Be More Interested In Other Games This Week, Razorback Fans

by Doc Harper 10/5/2012 9:30 am

Remember the scene in The Godfather when Michael tells Vito, “We’ll get there, Pop. We’ll get there.” Only they never really get there because [SPOILER ALERT] Vito dies right after that and Michael only sinks deeper into the Mafia culture. Razorback football reminds me of that scene. Unless “getting there” refers to basketball season, in which case, count us in.

Jim Harris: Unlike '79, Razorbacks Don't Quite Have CWS Title In Grasp Yet

by Jim Harris 6/20/2012 1:05 pm

Arkansas has never come quite as close to an NCAA baseball championship as the Razorbacks did in 1979. The biggest reason for that is, until late Monday night in Omaha, Neb., the Hogs had only started 2-0 in the College World Series in 1979. Obviously, the deeper a team can go in a double-elimination baseball tournament, the better the chances of taking home the title.

by Jim Harris 5/30/2012 4:40 pm

Texas A&M wants to replace its annual Thanksgiving weekend game against Texas with new Southeastern Conference rival LSU. The SEC appears to want that marquee Thanksgiving weekend matchup as well. All that was lacking was LSU's OK, and it was believed among Tiger insiders that LSU preferred to keep Arkansas as its regular season finale. Now, however, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva has spoken out and seems to prefer that the Tigers now play A&M in the date where LSU and Arkansas have met for 20 years.

Saturday Roulette: Rivalry Week; Razorbacks Have A Show To Do In Baton Rouge

by Doc Harper 11/23/2011 4:00 pm

It’s Thanksgiving week and it seems appropriate to give thanks for, among other more meaningful things, an extremely interesting and attractive collection of rivalry games on which we can bet our fantasy dollars. While it may be hard to focus on anything other than the excitement in Baton Rouge, there are several games elsewhere that don’t impact the Razorbacks, but should still be fun to watch. Welcome to a special pre-Friday edition of Saturday Roulette.
