Hogs Guy Predicts: Alabama vs. Arkansas

Editor’s Note: Hogs Guy last appeared at the 2009 Georgia game. Since that game wasn’t won by Arkansas, he was banished until we could again beat the Bulldogs. Since that happened last week, Hogs Guy is back in full effect ready to spread Razorback cheer to anyone that needs it. This season is primed to be special. That’s why we need Hogs Guy.

Hey. I am Hogs Guy. and I L-O-V-E the Arkansas Razorbacks. They’re probably the awesomest team ever to play football at the collegiate level. Seriously. I love everything about them – their name, their jerseys, their colors, their offense, their defense, their head coach Bobby Petrino, their Ryan Mallett, their all of the receivers, and also they’re awesome. It would take too much time to tell you everything I loved about them. It’s like a lot.

Last week’s football game against Georgia was an incredible game for a while. Then it got sucky when the Hogs forgot the defensive plays of defense. And then it got better. It got better big time when Jake Bequette hit that other quarterback’s head off. OUCHIE!!1 Then the game got REALLY GOOD when Ryan Mallett threw to DJ Williams, then threw to DJ Williams, then threw to Greg Childs and then the Greg Childs ran for the 6-point touchdown. Then our new rookie kicker guy Zach Hocker place-kicked a one-point extra point for us. But Georgia somehow put their quarterback’s head back together and he threw it about 65 yards for a no-catch play. Dumb idea, because we won after that.

That means the Hogs are super awesome and have won a lot of our three games so far.

This weekend we play the Alabama Crimson Tides in a football sports contest. They’re pretty good too because they’ve won a lot of their three games so far. TV sports guys think this is going to be a good match. Which means I’m gonna have to be at the game, ready to spread Razorback cheer to everyone.

And if you’re wanting to take me on in a bet, you can. I think this is how the game will turn out – Arkansas Razorbacks 24, Alabama Crimson Tides 21. If you think you can beat me, first off, you can’t. Get a life. Second off, tell me YOUR score guess below. I’d say good luck, but you’ve already lost. And don’t even think about guessing AGAINST the Hogs. If you do, I’ll punch you on your ear falls off.

I’m Hogs Guy. Bye.
