Know what? This weekend is Woo-Pig Sooie time in F-town! And I tell you what, that bye week couldn’t have come at a
better worse time. The Hogs showed off their high octane offense two weekends ago in Little Rock by pounding Missouri State into submission by a score of 48-10. The offense was so potent that it threw for 447 yards, in the air, only. On top of that, 13 different players caught a pass. Throw in 144 yards on the ground and a kickoff return for a TD and you get pure enthusiasm and excitement from the Razorback fan-base.
Now, how did we all do as score predictors? Well, on the Staff side of things, Dustin was the closest with his prediction of 49-10 (a measly one point off). According to Dustin, the Hogs spin-kicked the Bears … to their death (figuratively, of course). On the fan side, there were only two entries (weak sauce), but Innarested Observer said the “men of pork” would prevail 40-17. Nice work guys.
This week should prove to be a much tougher game for Bobby P and the Hogs. Georgia is on the docket and is coming to town to experience the new Sportexe Power-Blade 2.5 synthetic turf. Georgia is 1-1 on the season, losing their first game to Oklahoma State 24-10 and winning last weekend’s game 41-37 against South Carolina. The Bulldogs are ranked 20th, but they looked like two different teams over the past two weekends. This is a crucial game for both Georgia and Arkansas, but Arkansas has the much tougher road that lay ahead. The Hogs need to win this SEC opener since we’ll play three of the current top five teams in the next five weeks (and, by the way, they’re all in our conference). I’m not concerned with the offense, I’m concerned with the defense. We’ll learn quickly how much the kids have learned over the past year.
Also this week, we’ve got an incentive to get you guys involved in this little weekly football season score picking ritual. I’m talking about free BBQ from Sassy’s Red House. Mmm. Meat.

Jonathan says: Close as hayell, but the Bulldogs eek out a victory. Also, Matt Jones will break in and streak the field.
Georgia 24, Arkansas 21
Todd says: In their last game, it was Cox vs. Cocks. Is there anybody on their team named Hawgx?
Arkansas 30, Georgia 20
Trip says: The phrase “Hawgs Vs. Dawgs” is uttered about 10,000 times too many.
Arkansas 27, Georgia 24
Seth says: “Common hot dog ingredients are (1) Meat and fat, (2) Flavorings, such as salt, garlic, and paprika, and (3) Preservatives (cure) – typically sodium erythorbate and sodium nitrite. In the US, if variety meats, cereal or soy fillers are used, the product name must be changed to “links” or the presence must be declared as a qualifier.”
HA HA HA, no der! Grow up.
Arkansas 38, Georgia 31
Dustin says: Georgia jumps out to early lead, but Hogs come back on a late 4th quarter drive to win. After a 1-2 start, Mark Richt puts his house on the market.
Arkansas 28, Georgia 27
So what’s it going to be Hog fans? Will Arkansas pull out the upset win? Will Georgia come in and command presence? Will the Hog Car ever find enough photos? We’ll know after Saturday night.
Thanks to Sassy’s Red House for sponsoring this contest. Go pick ’em!
