Wally Watch: August 23-26, 2007

Wally Watch

Wally Watch: Where we read Wally Hall so you don't have to.

August 23, 2007: Say what you will, but Hogs can get to #9
Primary Theme: Wally voted Arkansas #9 in the preseason AP poll and is very sick of hearing that this might have been a little optimistic.

Money Quote: "Perhaps I’m wrong, maybe even an idiot, but that doesn’t mean a posse should harass me." Love it...this quote is great for so many reasons.

August, 24, 2007: Time to read up on Delta Classic-4-Literacy

Primary Theme: A Wally Hall stew of various informational and conversational morsels.

Bold Statement Alert: "If Darren McFadden wins the Heisman Trophy, last week’s issue of Sports Illustrated, dated Aug. 20, 2007, will increase in value in Arkansas"

August 26, 2007: "Harrison's arrest should serve as wake-up call"

Primary Theme: Dissecting Marcus Harrison's recent arrest like only Wally can.

Head Scratcher: The claim that Ecstasy, either directly or indirectly, causes the deaths of "tens of thousands of young people" each year. We're not downplaying the seriousness of the situation, nor are we experts in drug policy, but our suspicion is that if Ecstasy really was responsible for a yearly death count equal to half the American lives lost during the entire Vietnam War, we'd probably be hearing a lot more about it.

Humor Alert: We're guessing that Wally's rather odd assertion that "if a player just feels he has to be stupid and shoplift, the worst place to do it is in Dillard’s, which has dozens and dozens of cameras" is a joke, and if so it's pretty funny. We could definitely see him ripping someone else for saying something like this, though.

Our Analysis: We like to give Wally a hard time (a statement that's probably Wally-esque in its obviousness), but to be fair this column was a surprisingly moderate and reasoned analysis. For the sake of this blog, we like it better when he stands proudly on the moral high ground and lets us all know how to act. Oh well, maybe next time.
