Da boot. Doubt it.

ARKANSAS VS. LSU
1:30 p.m., War Memorial Stadium. $45.

So we're not going to a bowl. Our defense has regressed from bad to disastrous. Our star running back, who had a commanding lead in league rushing stats mid-way through the season, only to struggle with injury and O-line ineptness, probably won't play. The seniors on the team who never bought into Bobby Petrino's brusque, no-nonsense style of coaching (the anti-Nutt), have surely, now, really given up caring. Plus, we're likely to get plenty of help self-destructing: After getting creamed by Houston Dale's new squad last week, LSU will be out for blood. It could — probably will — be a drubbing. But! There are worse excuses to escape further family share time than to play bean bag toss and drink Bloody Marys on a muddy golf course. And Nathan Dick, at least in post-game highlights, actually looks pretty good (he can hit a receiver in stride!), so maybe we'll at least get a few fireworks to help send off the season. Even if we get killed, the game's a rite of passage to what many a Hog fan's looked forward to since August: talking about next season. Can't wait.
