In Fayetteville, Arkansas, there are no moral victories.


What a roller coaster ride in the last few minutes of the Arkansas-Auburn game! Not that it matters in the long run – a 9-7 loss is still a loss, no matter how thrilling.

Arkansas has had leads in the fourth quarter of all three of its losses this season.

Three ranked teams (South Carolina, Tennessee and LSU) still await the Hogs on the schedule, which means that 6-6 is a distinct possiblity.

    I said more or less the same thing in my ballot this week for the SEC Power Poll, but I’ve been giving Arkansas a lot of benefit of the doubt this year because I figured they were never out of it as long as they had McFadden and Jones toting the rock. But if an Auburn team missing four starters on defense can hold them to 67 yards rushing, they’re officially deader than disco.


  2. In a perverse way, you could argue that Marcus Monk is the most valuable player in the SEC to date. I believe Arky would be undefeated right now if he weren’t injured.
