Reasons to Hate: TCU

It’s time for some good, old fashioned, SWC hate.

NCAA Football: Arkansas at Texas Christian Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Southwest Conference

That’s right its time for some old school hate. Some hate your dad knew all too well. That old Frank Broyles vs. Abe Martin style fight. Who could forget that 3-0 win back in 1959? Does it matter that TCU and Arkansas were rarely good at the same time during their time in that conference? Nope. Bring out that good ol’ nostalgia hate.

Those Dang Tiny, Hard to Tackle Skill Players

Kavontae Turpin is listed at 5’9” and 153 lbs. You know how hard that is to tackle? And guess what. There’s more of them! Desmon White is listed at 5’7” 160lbs, Kenedy Snell at 5’8” 170 lbs, and Robbie Fuelling is 5’9” 160 lbs. Those little guys go against every bit of Arkansas’ beefy brand. The Hogs are throwing several players out there twice that weight. They don’t understand how anyone can be that small and fast. It’s like when a german shepard gets confused by that little yapping dog with all that energy.

Last Year’s Game

That game took years off your life, because of all that stress. Sure Arkansas won, but games like that are how hate gets born. You invested so much into that game, and it took you on a roller coaster of emotions. Hate that Kenny Hill threw the ball 56 times and you had to get winded watching that Arkansas defense run side to side all game long. And then TCU had to go and finish 6-6 on the season making you feel like that game didn’t matter as much.

Bad Nicknames

Speaking of Kenny Hill. Or should I say Kenny Trill? What kind of nickname is that? Someone came up with that nickname faster than ol’ Kenny’s star rose and fell with Texas A&M. You really couldn’t put anymore thought into in than that. This is Trill’s third game against the Razorbacks and you are tired of hearing that god awful nickname.

Super Frog

Just look at those cold dead eyes staring into your soul.

Their mascot is based on an animal that shoots blood out of it’s eye as a defense mechanism. I’m sorry what? That is all of the nope. Get that frog away from me.
