Living in Sheridan, I always snicker and roll my eyes when Cowboy Troy says he's "coming to my city". 

He is...on his way to Davis Creek.
Let's get rid of that dogbone-shaped logo of ours, bring back the old school 'A' with the Hog running through it, and start kicking people's asses again.

Or maybe it's because ESPN, just like every other TV network, is ratings oriented.  Arkansas has a smaller population than Florida, Ohio, Michigan, California, Texas and many other states, so they are going to cater to the larger markets. We all know that it is money driven, and ratings bring the money.  I honestly don't believe there is a conspiracy against Arkansas, mainly because, as a state and as a college football team we have been nationally irrelevant for so long.  Let us have several more years of success, and we will start getting the recognition.  But one BCS bowl doesn't propel us to national prominence.  If  that was the case then UCONN, Hawaii, and Utah could be clamoring for respect.

You had it nailed until that last line and had to drop Boise in there.

But you are mostly right. They are in the business of making scrilla and they are doing one Starkville of a job.

Mudhuts and goat castration? Sounds like they spent all summer being dicks. Especially to the goats.

Damn, y'all are some literal frickers today.

I don't care what logic there is behind it....Michigan vs. Norte Dame will have zero impact on the BCSNC game this year and they can both kiss hoggly' mom's ass.

I caught about 30 seconds of their show yesterday morning...

Lee Corso: "You can't win the SEC without a proven QB."

Fowler: "How proven was Cam Newton last year?"

Corso: "ehhh...they had a great defense!"
  ::)

Nevermind the fact the last two national champions have had first year QBs.

It does seem like Corso is doing better, it was rough watching him last year.

Sheridan? You should head head on over HWY 46 to Redfield. We'll show you how the elite live. Very cosmopolitan. Just got a Subway. Maybe grab yourself a burger from the Mammoth Orange. Who knows? You might get lucky and find a woman wif some teefs. Did you say you like bathtub crank?

Herbie just made a bold prediction. Said the guy who will win the Heisman is the guy whose highlights you will see when you turn on Sportscenter. At least he knows it's an ESPN padgent. Oh and that Luck won't win over Lamicheal James because Stanford won't be as good as Oregon.

Padgent. Yes. Awesome.

GameDay was alright for a while. The On Campus segment was pretty good. Now, it's pretty unwatchable, at least the talking heads at the desk. The taped segments can be decent. Todd McShay runs about 50-50 between having a clue and not knowing what the frick he's talking about. EA is awful. Really, really bad. What's interesting is that I've heard her on Bo's show, and she actually was a great interview. Knowledgeable and quick on her feet. Never seen that out of her on GameDay. She tries waaay too hard.

The most entertaining college football show on Saturday morning is Sports Nation on ESPNU. It goes for funny, not insightful, and manages to pull it off.

I noticed he gave the tv  :shocker: sign today when they showed his PAC 12 preview. I didn't know herbie was a wee bit freaky.

There are threads on here that piss and moan about "Why isn't Gameday coming to Arkansas?" and other threads like this that profess their hate for the show.

Personally I am over Gameday and don't care much about them coming to Arkansas any more, but the two opinions you are talking about are not mutually exclusive. It's possible to hate that show for the pointless sham that it is and still recognize the exposure it provides for your campus as well as the fun it can provide for fans before a game.

Anyway, if those are truly the 4 games in contention, then it's a no-brainer where they will go.  Add in the whole "omg Tuscaloosa tornado" aspect, with all the namby-pamby bullshit stories they can create out of that, and it's a done deal.

You just nailed it.  If Tom Rinaldi can't have a 10 minute depressing monologue, you can forget it.

nice stat scrolling across ESPiN when Ark vs Troy comes up: ARK only team in FBS in top 5 in scoring offense and scoring defense.

the rest of the show is teh suck outside of the best piece of truth spoken on the show in years, which i fully expect corso is getting fired for: criticizing boise and saying they are not an elite program and wouldn't deserve a national championship game bid if they go undefeated.  i couldn't believe it, the other 3 guys looked at lee like he just shot their dogs.

why do you hate Beano Cook? Beano rocks and is the one who got college football on TV to begin with.
