Four Reasons to Hate Florida International

In case you need any extra help getting fired up, we’ll be providing a handy pre-game cheat sheet detailing why you should hate each one of the Razorbacks’ opponents this fall. Some weeks will be easier than others …

1. It's a Boring Matchup. One week after our first SEC victory, we're itching to see the Hogs take on another conference opponent and find out if last week's nice win was a harbinger of things to come. Instead, we get another, but thankfully final, installment of the Razorbacks' beyond-boring non-conference schedule. As one writer said earlier this year - we forget who it was - "How can Arkansas look at its season-ticket holders with a straight face?"

2. It's a No-Win Situation. If the Hogs win by a lot - hey, it's Florida International, a team that has lost 19 straight and hasn't tasted victory since December 2005. If they struggle, another week of angst and agitation among Arkansas fans.

3. They've Got a Bit of a Temper. During Florida International's game against Miami last season, a national-headline-making brawl broke out that resulted in the suspension of 31 players. During the incident, one Florida International player swung his helmet at a Miami player. McFadden and the fellas may want to watch the trash talking.

4. They Make Blogging Hard. This isn't supposed to be work, but trying to find reasons to hate Florida International (and Arkansas' other non-conference opponents) sure feels like it. Furthermore, it kind of seems cruel, like clubbing a baby seal. This feature usually lists five reasons to hate the Hogs' opponent. Four is as far as we can stretch it this week.
