Excerpt: A Few 2013 Predictions For The Arkansas Razorbacks

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Read the full predictions column at Sporting Life Arkansas.

As we head into 2013, it's time to look ahead and see what's in store for Razorback fans. Here's to hoping for a year that, at the very least, makes sense. Here's an excerpt from my predictions column at Sporting Life Arkansas, which you can read in full here.

I’d been planning to write some sort of fun 2013 predictions column filled with ideas of things highly unlikely to happen but fun to think about, but when I tried to come up with my list, I couldn’t come up with much that was more absurd than what actually happened in 2012.

In fact, what happened this year is pretty much exactly what a group of drunk guys around a poker table would come up with at this point last year.

So my big 2013 prediction is a year of relative normalcy. The law of averages suggests it will happen. It’s hard to imagine Arkansas has done anything so profoundly awful that karmic retribution will continue. Things started to turn around in December, after all.

No head coaching changes. No bankrupt interim coaches. Liz Honey will probably make some more videos but they won’t go viral.

And Bret Bielema will start a trend of people wearing full Razorback track suits. Hog track suits will be the new Arkansas coach’s polo. Hopefully, this will extend to the dress codes of local workplaces.
