Five Reasons to Hate Troy

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2007 at 2:46 PM

In case you need any extra help getting fired up, we'll be providing a handy pre-game cheat sheet detailing why you should hate each one of the Razorbacks' opponents this fall. Some weeks will be easier than others...

1.They're better than you think. Unlike certain other non-conference foes we could mention (actually, all of them), Troy can actually play. They gave Florida State all they could handle last year, and they have legit talent in QB Omar Haugabook and RB Kenny Catthouse.

2. They won their bowl game last year. Any Razorback fan has to be a little jealous of a team that can actually win their bowl game, even if it was the slightly less-than-legendary New Orleans Bowl.  

3. They can throw the ball. Last year, Haugabook passed for 2,400+ yards and 21 touchdowns. Um, the Razorbacks' QBs posted similar stats, right? Right?? 

4. There's no upside. To be fair, this isn't really Troy's fault, but even if the Hogs win in a rout this game could come back to haunt us

5. We seem to have bad luck in opening games against Trojans. 'Nuff said.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
