Another November Surge?

If you're like me, you remember 2010 as one of the great Razorback football seasons. And it was, featuring fantastic road wins against No. 18 South Carolina and No. 22 Mississippi State, and an electric victory over No. 6 LSU in the regular-season finale in Little Rock.

By the way, notice anything that the above-mentioned wins had in common? They all took place in November. That's when the 2010 Hogs really got on track and became the BCS bowl-worthy team we all so fondly recall now. Up until that point, at least in the eyes of your resident warriors of the keypad, the 2010 season had been something of a slight disappointment, featuring heartbreaking losses against Alabama and Auburn, and hair-pulling victories over Texas A&M and Ole Miss. 

With November once again upon us, the 2011 Razorbacks have been, I think it's fair to say, somewhat of a disappointment as well. Believe me, I know that sounds crazy to the casual observer. After all, the Hogs carry a 7-1 record and are ranked No. 7 in the BCS poll. LSU and Alabama are the only SEC teams ranked higher (by the way, have you heard that they're playing each other this weekend?). After the recent 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008 seasons, these are not things that I dismiss lightly.

But wobbly wins against the likes of Troy, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Vandy have to leave you worried about how the rest of 2011 will unfold. However, as last year showed, things can change in a hurry. Let's all take a deep breath and see what the final month of the regular season has to offer. November is here, and the Hogs have more than enough time to make 2011 a year to remember.
