Razorbacks vs TCU

 (Update Page throughout the game for our thoughts) Here we are, TCU vs the Razorbacks. If there was a game to circle on the proverbial schedule it would have been this one. The 15th ranked team in the country looming large with their breakneck pace. To say that this game means a lot to many of us would be an understatement.

  Garth Brooks (If you were born after Y2K, he’s a famous country singer who was prominent in the 90’s) recently caused a stir in the College Football world by saying Arkansas should join the Big 12 in a conference expansion. Pundits immediately jumped on the idea of swine joining the equine and bovine of OU and UT. This makes a ton of sense, so naturally it won’t happen. It's true that leaving the SEC would mean an initial hit to yearly conference checks. Arkansas would lose around $6 million a year in cash payouts. It's time the Razorback faithful saw that money for what it is though, the same type of money Arkansas pays out for early season cupcake wins. For...
