Arkansas vs Texas A&M
« on: September 20, 2016, 12:07:57 am »


Inside Look:

Kickoff, 8:00 PM (CST) at AT&T Stadium (Dallas, TX); Televised by ESPN.
AP Poll Top 25 Rankings: Arkansas Razorbacks (3-0), 17th overall; Texas A&M Aggies (3-0, 1-0 SEC), 10th overall.
Last Meeting: Texas A&M won 28-21 OT
Series: Arkansas leads 41-28-3

So FF Family, the Razorbacks have the potential to be creating a special season right before our eyes with a potential victory over the Aggies this upcoming Saturday. The Hogs and Aggies both won and due to the craziness of college football, both teams jumped seven spots in the recent AP Top 25 as noted above.

For the Razorbacks, the best indicator of the future is the past and in this game they have gone to OT each of the last two years and have fallen short, but were right in the midst of winning. I believe Arkansas can defeat TAMU and then gets a reprieve the following weekend with Alcorn State in Little Rock before a potential matchup of undefeated with Alabama looming in the distance.

At the moment, with the Vegas Line, most of the Football Power Indexes I have found currently favor the Aggies around 75% at the time of this posting. Arkansas has slowly been chipping away at this so I'd expect it to be closer to a 60-40% margin, even tighter if more individuals are high on the Hogs before game time.

So here is what I am have had my mind around, the Hogs have the best home schedule of anyone in the country with Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida, as well as LSU coming to Fayetteville! Arkansas has hung tough with Alabama and just haven't found a way to secure the victory. The potential of these next three weeks could very well see our very own Razorbacks not only in discussion for the College Football Playoff, but right in the thick of it with those decisive victories over TAMU and BAMA.

Again, it is one game at a time mentality, but I can't contain my excitement. My wife is a huge Ohio State fan and laughs at me for thinking this way, but I think they have the pieces coming together and finally got the hot start they have been missing to get the football season rolling and truly have something to play for come November.

Nice!

Let's go hogs! I think we are coming into ourselves as a team. I like RW3 and the poise of AA. Defense has improved every week too. We have to finish the 3rd and 4th quarter. If we do, BB gets his first win over TAMU.

I have seen Alcorn play. Watched them against Pine bluff. If we lose to them.... We might as well hang up the whole entire season. It was probably the most boring game I have ever watched. The team looked like a high school team out there.

Went to a friends house last night.  He informed me that the Sports Analyst said that who ever won this game Saturday, would most likely end up being the SEC West Champs.  Even the BUZZ is starting to talk like it.  Predictions started out with Arkansas pulling off a last minute upset, now it's Arkansas winning by 10-14. By Saturday, A&M might as well not bother showing up.  Haha

28-24, Arkansas. The only thing rank on Auburn is the smell, as far as OM being ranked, they are getting the benefits of playing what were at the time, top ranked opponents. I have us going 8-4, so that's 4-4 in conference play, hopefully the surprise me.

We are on opposite ends, at this time.  My point on Auburn & Ole Miss is they're better than perceived and are on the up swing of a learning curve.  TCU won't finish with a .500 season.

A&M - 1 TD on Specialty Teams, two FG's, and 4 offense TD's = 41 (seems a bit high).
Arkansas - 3 offense TD's, 1 FG = 24

Arkansas is the unknown factor.  Can they score on what looks to be a pretty good SEC Defense? Is the defense deep enough to last 4 qtrs in a track race?  What was that cramping about in the TCU game?

I guess it was hot, that won't be a problem in Jerry's World. I promise you TCU will finish about .500. They might be 7-5, but they will be above .500.

Well you're right on the .500 - pretty weak schedule.  My meaning they're an average team.  TCU wasn't cramping.  Too much Creatine in Arkansas Juice?  Anyway, hope everyone stays healthy.

Auburn and UCLA are average teams, and PV is worse than TX ST, lol. I suspect by the end of the season, we'll be saying aTm and Arkansas are "average" teams, by your definition.

Where is your line for average teams rice?  Teams outside the top 25?  The games are weeding out the Top 25 pretenders - Notre Dame (thus Texas lol), Oklahoma, TCU, - was pretty obvious.  What are you saying Arkansas is now?  Arkansas vs  TCU (2 OT's) was a great match up.

I've seen worse than that not called targeting. I guess it depends on how the referee crew feels.

Personally: penalty, yes. Targeting, ehhh.

Play all this good defense then give up these big plays. They have 200 or so yards of offense and 2/3 on 3 plays.
