Saturday To-Do: Arkansas vs. Ole Miss

Arkansas takes on Ole Miss Saturday at War Memorial Stadium.

ARKANSAS VS. OLE MISS
11:21 a.m. War Memorial Stadium. $65.

For the first time since 1997, Arkansas and Ole Miss will square off in a football game that does not include Houston Nutt. Yes, the Razorbacks will square off against the Whatever-They're-Called-Nows and HDN will be nowhere close. He will not be clowning around and chewing his fingernails on the sidelines. He will not be doing that weird, eyes-darting-all-over-the-place thing, nor will he be diving into the stands. He will not be running it up the middle over and over and &*(%#$! over again.

Now, I'm not prepared to use the term "closure" for what this game represents for either team or their fans, but still, something about this just feels like starting over.

OK, back to the game: basically, if either the Hogs or Ole Miss are to get a bowl bid this season, they need to win this game. I'm sure Beau Wilcox has some cogent observations on the game over at Pearls About Swine, so I'll just say WPS! and leave it at that.

The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
