Hope all y'all get to (safely) blow stuff up this weakend and smoke some meat. Cheers. America.

Bruce Feldman says Arkansas has a road to the College Football Playoffs this season. Granted, it's the #1 most difficult road in the country, but still. A road, nonetheless. Once again, did y'all realize Arkansas has a challenging schedule and might not win a lot of games? I'd never heard that idea before. A shock, I tell ya.

Since Arkansas' odds of success seem so long this season, and it's Independence Day, I think UA should make this part of a hype video this season:

Just replace "the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind" with "facing the toughest college football schedule in the history of mankind". It works.

UA really really really wants to win this Sirius XM College Sports Nation Traditions Tournament. I don't really know why Arkansas has chosen to devote so much time and energy to this, but they have. They're tweeting about it a lot, putting it in the Daily Call, and probably plenty of other places. The Hog Call is currently in the Final Four against Wisconsin's "Jump Around" and it's pretty close. The Hogs did win this last year and voting in this round goes until Sunday. No comments from Bret Bielema on his thoughts on the two traditions.

NFL.com says Arkansas' new uniforms rank among the best in college football.  Woot. Those uniforms really do look great in those publicity photos. Hope it translates well to the field.

So there's this:

I'll leave you with your own thoughts.
