Counting Down to Saturday

Posted By on Tue, Aug 26, 2008 at 1:03 PM

With everything that's happened since that epic, season-closing win over LSU (note: it is official Expats policy not to recognize or discuss certain bowl games that the red-clad Hogs played after that), it feels like's been about a million years since the Razorbacks actually played a meaningful down of football.

I'm still having a hard time believing that, after all the discussion and anticipation, the season actually starts this Saturday (Western Illinois, watch out!). But, it really does...to prove it, the team released their depth chart and everything.

The depth chart says a lot about what an interesting season this is going to be. There are tons of unfamiliar names on there, and it seems like about half of them are freshmen (that's not quite true, but there are 14 frosh on either the first or second teams). It's a new era in just about every possible way...should be fun.

We have our team of unpaid interns working overtime, so stay tuned for plenty of other season-opening content coming over the next few days.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    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.
