Bye Bye Freddie
Linebacker Freddie Fairchild was dismissed from the team on Wednesday stemming from battery charges in March involving Freddie and a female he had been involved with for about a year.
Fairchild was Arkansas' third leading tackler last season, but his football career at the U of A is over. Freddie plead not guilty and his trial is set for June 18th in Fayetteville.
The loss of Fast Freddie depletes an already thin linebacking core for the Razorbacks.
So, I was browsing through the magazine section last night at the grocery store and was surprised to see Athlon's and Lindy's with pre-season publications out. I guess that's normal, but I just never really think about college football publications until July or early August, but there they were with all of the fantasy football magazines as well.
I briefly looked through both and found that Lindy's has the Hogs finishing 6th in the SEC West and Athlon's has them finishing 5th. I hope both those companies go bankrupt and nobody buys those worthless magazines.
