KNOW YOUR ENEMY. KNOW HIM/HER AND KNOW HIM/HER WELL.
look at this gif. LOOK AT IT.
STARE AT THAT GIF.
NOW LOOK AT THIS PICTURE
BOTH OF THESE PICTURES SHOULD FILL YOU WITH ANGER. WITH RAGE. WITH A SHEER DESIRE TO BURN EVERYTHING TO THE DAMN GROUND.
I remember going to the first A&M/arkie game. I remember being up 10-0. This pleased me greatly because I had spent close to 400 damn dollars on the game (tickets, hotel etc). I also remember getting our teeth kicked in.
I remember watching the second Arkansas game. I remember our defense performing valiantly. I remember only losing by 7 and wondering why we couldnt get more production out of Jerrod.
I will not speak of the third arkansas game. I'll let the above pictures do the speaking for me.
Now let's talk about last year. Two quick reminders:
WE ARE NO LONGER THE TEAM FROM THE ABOVE PICTURES, BUT BY GOD THE HURT IS STILL THERE. AND WHEN YOU HURT, YOU MUST HURT OTHERS. I WANT US TO HURT THE HOGS. BY GOD THEY MUST PAY FOR THE ANGUISH THEY CAUSED US. THEY. MUST. PAY.
13: Did you know Mike Evans was in a car accident this past summer? Yeah neither did I. But much like the Alabama secondary, a jeep rolling over couldn't stop him either. I expect him to have a billion yards this weekend. YES ONE BILLION YARDS.
12: The hogs won't let us bring Rev or our band this weekend. HEY HOGS F*CK YOU. JOHNNY'S GONNA LEAD THE TEAM THROUGH A FOUR WAY CROSS THROUGH AT THE HALF WHEN WE'RE UP 70.
11: EXCITEMENT METERS SHOULD GO TO 11.
10: Young freshman Daeshon Hall (Dae Dae) came of age last week with his interception (if only he'd followed his blocks). I expect him to be in the piggy backfield the entire game.
9: Speaking of being in the backfield, pleasant surprise Nate Askew is going to make the QB squeal like a pig as he bursts off the line faster than [INSERT BOBBY PETRINO JOKE HERE]
8: DID YOU SEE STEVEN JENKINS TOTALLY POLAMALU HIS WAY INTO THE BACKFIELD LAST WEEK AGAINST SMU? TIMED THE SNAP PERFECTLY.
7: Kenny Hill time. Lots of it.
6: Shout out to old #6 Matt Davis for being the NJCAA Player of the Week.
5: I'M PICKING IT. THIS IS THE GAME THAT BRANDON WILLIAMS BURSTS ON TO THE SCENE. THIS IS IT.
3: Lord help the pigs if Trey Williams is healthy.
2: 557. That's how many yards Johnny had on the pigs last year. 557. This was the game where Johnny Manziel officially became Johnny Football. 557 YARDS WILL FEEL LIKE NOTHING BY THE TIME SATURDAY IS OVER.
1: YOU DOWN WITH THE KING? BEN. DAMN. BALLENA WILL OCCUPY #1 ON THIS SPOT EVERY DAMN WEEK. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT TAKE IT UP WITH HIS BICEPS.
THE SEC GAUNTLET (kind of) STARTS THIS WEEKEND. PREPARE YOURSELF AGS. LET'S FEAST ON A MEAL OF PORK CHOPS WITH A SIDE OF BACON THIS WEEKEND.
B. T. H. O. pig.
