What In The Starkhell?

The Razorbacks are finding new and excruciating ways of torturing me this season as evidenced by their come from ahead loss to Mississippi State on Saturday.

Let's face it though, there were no consensus big expectations of this team pre-season sans my undefeated prediction which is besides the point right now. Most prognosticators had the Hogs with about 13-14 wins at this point in the season anyway. Most might have figured that the Hogs would have at least 2-3 SEC wins at this point, but no one saw the upsets of OU or Texas.

This is a young team and they look it right now. The Hogs shot 62 percent from the field in the first half to take a 15 point lead into the lockerroom only to have the Bulldogs shoot 64 percent from the field in the second half to win it 86-77. Jarvis Varnado had 7 blocks for the Dogs.
