Focus, Razorbacks, focus

Posted By on Sat, Oct 24, 2009 at 5:57 AM

John Brummett thinks Arkansas's quirks, including an inferiority complex-influenced obsessiveness about Razorback athletic matters, can be damaging.

This last week, everyone should have been focusing laser-like on Ole Miss.

Yet the first sports story in our media and minds all week has been, invariably, the Florida controversy. The secondary story has been not to forget that there’s another game, against Ole Miss, this weekend.

That kind of wasted focus is devastating in athletic competition. Skill being generally equal, as seems to be the case with these combatants today, the victory will usually go to the participant more devoted to intense concentration on the immediate task.

Moral: We lost to Florida. Get over it, lest Houston Nutt pull off another big one.
