Not That We're Superstitious, But...

Ok, that's a lie - we are superstitious, at least when it comes to the Razorbacks.

So when we see Darren McFadden on the cover of Sports Illustrated, as much as we know it's a good thing for recruiting, his Heisman pursuit and the general perception of the program (not to mention our nerdy excitement over this sort of thing) we get a little nervous. After all, there is a famous cover jinx and we all know what happened right after the last time the Hogs were on the SI cover.

So let's all enjoy the article and the attention, but be sure to keep some positive Razorback thoughts pointed in the right direction. And if D-Mac breaks his ankle climbing out of his enormous car, then we know who to blame.
