Bobby Petrino and the Temple of Croom: The Arkansas - Mississippi State Preview

(He no nuts! He crazy!

Arkansas 4-6 (1-5) at Mississippi State 3-7 (1-5)

Kickoff: 1:30 pm
Line: pick 'em
(Horrible photo shop brought to you at no additional charge today)

It's the Hogs once every two years trip to Starkhell, Mississippi to take on Croom and the Dogs in a game of little national importance tomorrow. I'll even go out on a limb and say no national importance. The big cameras and all the talking heads will be in Norman, Oklahoma, tomorrow to see three Heisman Trophy candidates take the field in a crucial BCS and Big 12 matchup.

If you take out the screw-job that was the Ole Miss game and the total meltdown that was the Kentucky game then this Razorback squad is 6-4 instead of 4-6 and trying to play it's way somewhere other than Shreveport.

No use crying over spilled referee guts at this point as the Hogs make their last true road trip of the year to take on Ninja Croom.

The Final Analysis:

Look, I'm not going to sugarcoat this. Mississippi State is bad. Terrible. Tennessee-awful. The Hogs should win this one. Hey Croom, you call him Dr. Petrino! I'm sticking with my original 31-30 preseason pick in favor of the Hogs.
