    So game one gave us unrealistic hope. Game 2 gave us unrealistic gloom and doom. I personally think this game 3 should give us perspective.

    We had a high high, where the gloomers reminded us it's not that good. We had a low low where the pumpers reminded us it's not that bad. This game. Right here, should give perspective as to where we are at and what direction we will be going.

    Just my thought on the game. Agree or disagree?

        So, we're turning to this game to gauge how "not-so-bad" we are ? - the $6 million dollar question ?

          A game against a community college isn't a game that provides perspective. It's a game against a competent, well coached team with talent that competes for something of significance regularly that gives perspective. After all, player talent, good coaching, and competitiveness should be the baseline for any decent program.

            Even the pumpers are nervous as hell about getting our azzes beaten by a 6-6 WAC team.

              Got it fixed. Thank you. We all need the Grammer and typo police.

              Think it's the 2 million dollar question.

                So, this very team didn't beat another SEC team last weekend? I'm sorry. I thought they did. Yes, some perspective... Rational people like to have some

                  That the season ticket price increase was well timed?

                      you serious Clark? Beating an SEC team means nothing. I said a well coached team with talent that competes with quality opponents. Tell me which part of that describes Arkansas. My post was rational, yours is emotional. Sorry.

                          CSU’s defense is hot garbage, so we’ll find out if we can move the ball on a bad FBS defense. Their passing attack is pretty damn good so we’ll find out if our defense can stop a potent FBS passing attack. That’s about it.

                            I'm looking for a good push on the lines, both sides.
                            We didn't have much against CS or Kentucky, so, 3 or 4 sacks, a couple int's on defense would be nice.

                            On offense, I would like to see the run game take over. I still think our backs are top tier SEC talent. Would love to see about 250 yards on the ground.

                            I think we all know our only shot to be competitive with good teams this year, is to run the ball.

                            I see nothing in the pass game that looks anything like competent.
