Thankfully, another Saturday will come tomorrow and the rotten, disgusting taste that has lingered in the mouths of Hog fans all week could be washed out.
Compared to what we have tasted this past week, can you imagine the taste of victory if Arkansas can pull off the upset of No. 1 Alabama?
Here is one positive way to look at it. The Hogs were a 30-point favorite last week, and the Crimson Tide is only a 20.5-point favorite tomorrow. It is a stretch, but I can dream.
Other than Verne, Gary, and Verne's chortle getting their first shot at SEC football on CBS this season, there are plenty of other games on the schedule to watch to this week. It is a much better schedule than we have seen any other weekend of the season thus far.
Here is a look at Saturday's schedule and games in each time slot to pay attention, flip back-and-forth between, and enjoy. To the games...
Mississippi State at Troy (7 p.m., ESPN3)- I have no genuine interest in watching this game when there are plenty of better options in this time slot, but who looks at this game and doesn't laugh? As an Arkansas fan I have no room to make fun of any school playing in non-conference Sun Belt games, especially with the beatdown State provided Auburn last week. That said, Mississippi State would be the one team in the SEC that travels to play Troy.
