All Bad Things Must Come to an End

Posted By on Sun, Mar 8, 2009 at 12:32 PM

And thankfully, this mind-numbing regular season (or, to be exact, this mind-numbing conference season) is over.

Maybe it's because my precious circadian rhythm had been thrown off by the time change, but I felt kind of cranky watching today's game. I didn't have it in me to conduct my usual search for the silver lining in yet another dark cloud.

It really struck me today just how weak this team is. I know that may sound crazy considering the Hogs finished 2-14 in SEC play, but de Nile ain't just a river in Egypt.

They don't do anything well (I'm guessing that's the case with most last-place teams). They have no identity, no personality. Their offense rarely has any type of flow or rhythm, and the defense offers all the resistance of a matador.

I've walked away from many of this season's losses thinking that the Razorbacks are closer to respectability than it would appear. I can't say that I feel that way right now.

Thoughts?

    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.

    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.
