The Razorbacks are Lando

Posted By on Wed, Oct 5, 2011 at 9:15 AM

Further proof that no one is geekier than sportswriters:'s Andy Staples compares the top college football teams to "Star Wars" characters. LSU is Yoda. Alabama is Emperor Palpatine. Oklahoma is Darth Vader. Texas A&M is Jar Jar Binks (hah). And Arkansas is Lando Calrissian.

Just when you think Lando is a turncoat — after all, he did betray the rebels to Darth Vader in Cloud City and got Han Solo frozen in Carbonite — he totally redeems himself by helping Leia and Chewie escape and then by helping Leia and Luke rescue Han from Jabba the Hutt. Just when you thought Arkansas was on life support — crushed by Alabama and down 18 at the half to Texas A&M — the Razorbacks redeem themselves with a comeback for the ages. Even without star receiver Joe Adams in the second half, quarterback Tyler Wilson threw for a school-record 510 yards. As Lando would say, that arm is operational. Life doesn't get easier for the Razorbacks this week as Auburn comes to Fayetteville.
