Five Reasons to Hate Troy

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.They're better than you think. Unlike certain other non-conference foes we could mention (actually, all of them), Troy can actually play. They gave Florida State all they could handle last year, and they have legit talent in QB Omar Haugabook and RB Kenny Catthouse.

2. They won their bowl game last year. Any Razorback fan has to be a little jealous of a team that can actually win their bowl game, even if it was the slightly less-than-legendary New Orleans Bowl.

3. They can throw the ball. Last year, Haugabook passed for 2,400+ yards and 21 touchdowns. Um, the Razorbacks' QBs posted similar stats, right? Right??

4. There's no upside. To be fair, this isn't really Troy's fault, but even if the Hogs win in a rout this game could come back to haunt us.

5. We seem to have bad luck in opening games against Trojans. 'Nuff said.
