If A Tree Falls But No One Is Around to Hear It

does the tree make a sound?

I am reminded of that age-old question when I think about tonight's Arkansas-Texas basketball game. Yes, that's right, the basketball Hogs will take on the No. 12 Longhorns this evening in Austin. On national television, in fact (ESPNU, to be exact).

With the Sugar Bowl on at the same time, will any Razorback fans be watching the basketball game? Being a glutton for punishment, I plan to DVR the hoops contest and keep loose tabs on it this evening, but even doing that probably puts me in a very, very small minority.

Who would have thought a Razorback-Longhorn match-up could generate so little interest?

Such are the states of the football and basketball programs.
