Wally Watch: Jan. 8, 2008

Jan. 8, 2008: Arkansas would be a good fit for BCS festivities.

Primary Theme: It's a bit hard to tell, but the gist of it seems to be the controversial assertion that Arkansas administration and fans would enjoy a trip to the BCS title game.

Secondary Themes: LSU outplayed Ohio State. The SEC is good at football.

Really Going Out on a Limb Here: "Arkansas fans would fit in very well in a championship environment." It's nice to hear that this long-running debate has finally been settled.

Choice Analogy (Cajun-style): "Early Doucet got the touchdown after he shucked two defenders as easily as he could a crawfish head"

Our Analysis: Even by Wally's standards, this is a fairly confusing column. It begins with some generic information about Jeff Long's attendance at the BCS title game and then abruptly segues into a straightforward recap of the game's major events before sort of returning to the main theme at the very end.

Although the game itself did have some interesting angles - the validity of LSU's "championship", how the BCS mess impacts the future prospects of a college football playoff (or "plus 1" game) or the significance to the Razorback football program of having recently beaten the new national champs, to name three - unsurprisingly Wally stayed pretty far away from them. He did manage to include some slightly suck-uppish comments about the greatness of Razorback fans, though (one of his go-to moves). So, as Razorback fans ourselves, thanks for the kind words!
