Thanks for the input!  However, we have never allowed a 2 year in a row for Arkansas.  We are here to earn that boot back and stay home, after a rough and only loss of the season last weekend our Tigers will come out Fighting.  My prediction is 35-21 LSU

I saw your name as a new "follower" to my blog. Thank you! I never heard of this, but then I don't follow college football. Nice post.
