Odds Makers On Crack: The Arkansas - Texas Preview
Arkansas (2-1) vs. Texas (3-0)
Kickoff: 2:30 CST in Austin
TV: Of course
Line: Texas -27.5
The Longhorns enter the contest a 27.5 point favorite against the SEC's top passing team (when was the last time you could say that Arkansas was the SEC's top passing team?). Mistake #1 is underestimating these Razorbacks. The first two games, maybe Arkansas was overestimating its' opponent. Against Alabama? Probably looking past the Tide to this matchup.
Casey Dick enters the contest as the top passing QB in the SEC in yardage per game with 831 yards passing in three games including five touchdowns. Texass' Colt McCoy has 833 yards and 11 touchdowns already this season. Colt McCoy sucks.
Huge Advantage: Arkansas
The only Colts I like are these...
(Me and Billy Dee like to poor out a little liquor for our fallen homies...)
(and if I find out that you took out one of my homies, I will cap your ass with one of these and then your homies will be pouring out liquor to honor you... that's just how I roll in Fayetteville...)
I got skillz position players:
With only two games under his belt this season, Michael Smith (who was suspended for the first game of the year) has the most rushing yardage of any back on either team with the 248 yards he's picked up in two weeks in a win over the most underrated all gay team in the nation - UL Monroe, and against Alabama. Texas' leading rusher? QB Colt McCoy with 194 yds. Whaaat?
Arkansas Tight End D.J. Williams and super frosh Joe Adams have 345 yards and three TDs between them. Texas' receiving duo of Quan Crosby and Jordan Shipley have six TDs and just over 500 yards receiving.
(SuperFrosh, SuperFrosh, he's SuperFroshey, yeaooowww!)
Huge Advantage: Arkansas
The rest of the positions and stuff like defense and special teams and coaches and cheerleaders:
(Longhorn cheerleaders will be disgusted by the end of the game on Saturday)
The Final Analysis:
The Razorbacks appeared to be struggling winning both games by a combined five points and losing by a small margin against Alabama last week. But, I say that looks can be deceiving! Without the threat of a real running game, the Hogs will only have to focus on containing poor Colt McCoy and the Horns' passing game. I say they do it and Casey Dick rebounds to have his best game of the year throwing for about 800 yards. The Razorbacks are playing oppossum and the Longhorns will get the shock of this young season when Arkansas steam rolls the Horns 44-24.
(How the Horns keep winning with fans like these is still a mystery to me.)
