WILL THE BOOT LOSE ITS SHINE: With demotion of Arkansas-LSU game to earlier spot in SEC schedule?
  • WILL THE BOOT LOSE ITS SHINE?: Arkansas-LSU game demoted to earlier spot in SEC schedule.
A word from our state religion.

The SEC football schedules for 2014 are out. As expected, Arkansas-LSU the day after Thanksgiving is another grand tradition tossed on the scrap heap. It will take a little punch out of The Boot trophy given the winner, I'd think.

Arkansas will finish with Missouri as its season-ender on the final Saturday, Nov. 29.

Sorry, Missouri bores me. (OK. More exciting than Samford.)

LSU-Texas A&M gets the marquee date.

I'm old enough to remember when Texas-Texas A&M was a Thanksgiving Day staple. Now there was a rivalry. It's another casualty of the chase for dollars in big-time college sports.
