    This makes me smile, but I'm not holding my breath for a repeat. BAMA has a long road ahead. We lost some experience on defense. We play 6 SEC teams coming off of bye weeks and the SEC ain't easy to play in anyway. Arkansas could actually win the west, because I see us losing to them on the road. We will lose at least 2 games this year. We will have a good year, but we won't repeat.

    You are probably right, but it is a nice thought. I was hearing today that we have a chance to quickly rebuild the D from the 3 big ones we lost..in our first 3 games before we hit the SEC.
    Repeats are hard...just ask Florida..but if anyone can pull it off it would be Saban.

    We are going to be fine on defense. We just are not going to dominate.

    As a Razorback I can say I always appreciate your fans. They're not prone to acting like the white trash down at LSU or Mississippi State. I'm also to the point I don't care who wins as long as it's not FLORIDUH or LSU.

    As much as I would love for this to happen, we don't match up. Your offense is too much for our defense, and I doubt our offense is enough to overpower your defense. It will be a great game, though. If we DID win, well...I'd be riding a high for the rest of the season. Honestly, Alabama is the only game I'm marking down as a definite loss. There are other possibilities, but I'm predicting 10-2 for us this year. Anything less than 9-3 is unacceptable.

    I know BAMA is going to be formidable and if we lose a game early, we could still get back to the top, but we are vulnerable. Arkansas and LSU on the road scare the hell out of me. We play LSU on the road with LSU coming off of a bye week, late in the season. That could spell disaster for us.

    The game I'm looking forward to is week 2. Penn State at home. Joe Pa at Bryant-Denny and I am going to miss it.
