Rumblings & Rumors
"Look at all these rumors, surroundin' me everyday. I just need some time. Some time to get away..."
I'm only using this post as a reason to remind everyone about a little known 80's group called Timex Social Club who sang the song "Rumors."
Darren McFadden spoke to the media yesterday about the crazy ass rumors swirling that he would not play in the bowl game for fear of being injured. McFadden explained that after the resignation of Coach Houston Nutt, he spent some time back on his home planet of Krypton gathering his thoughts and reflecting on what will be his last game in a Razorback uniform before addressing the media and clarifying for all that he will definitely be playing in the bowl game.
D-Mac was named a first team All-American by the coaches yesterday. He is also on the short list for the Doak Walker Award, the Maxwell Award, the Heisman Award, the Nobel Peace Prize, several AMA awards and has two Emmy and one Grammy nomination.
McFadden stands at 4,585 total rushing yards and trails LSU's Kevin Faulk (4,557) by 72 yards for second place all time in the SEC. It would take 774 yards to catch #1 Herschel Walker, but if anyone can in one game, it would be D-Mac.
(You're next, Faulk! You loser.)
McFadden currently stands at #3 in ESPN's Heisman poll and #2 over at the Heisman pundit in their unofficial balloting. Have I mentioned how much ESPN and Heisman pundit suck donkeys?
Rivals also announced that McFadden, Felix Jones, and Jonathan Luigs were first team Rivals All-Americans while Robert Felton was named a second teamer.
Another rumor running rampant is that Tommy "Totally Tubular"ville will be the next head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks.
A ten year, $37 million contract is the rumored deal to lure the Tub from Auburn to Arkansas. We will see as the musical chairs being played by the SEC coaches is beginning to iritate me.
(Hi, I'm Tommy, and this time I'm putting the mandatory back-popping clause in my new contract at Arkansas for sure!)
The So-Called SEC Championship Game:
Finally, tomorrow, a team that the Razorbacks dominated handedly (LSU) will take on a team the Razorbacks would have beaten with a mere three more touchdowns plus one field goal (Tennessee) in what is being called "the SEC Championship Game."
I won't be watching this garbage and personally, I hope both teams lose. Impossible you say? Improbable maybe, but I was always taught to chase after my dreams and also to keep my feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars. So I say it can happen. If someone has to win, I am predicting a final score of Tennessee winning 3-0 in three overtimes, because I want to hear Les Miles cry some more about being undefeated during regulation this season.
