  • The Arkansas Razorbacks take on the Warhawks of the University of Louisiana at Monroe Saturday at War Memorial Stadium.

ARKANSAS VS. LOUISIANA-MONROE
6 p.m. War Memorial Stadium. $55.

Let's just get it out of the way: Saturday's Razorbacks season opener against Jacksonville State probably didn't impress too many people. But I think the serious analysis is best left in the capable hands of Times Hog expert Beau Wilcox, whose Pearls About Swine column in this issue will no doubt include many cogent points about that game and this one.

I'll just say that this has likely been as weird a preseason as Hogs observers have seen — which is really saying something — and that fans are understandably both hopeful and anxious, especially after an underwhelming opener.

But here's the rub: Are the Hogs your team? Yes? OK, then let's all just take a deep breath and remember that this is one of only two opportunities fans will have this year for War Memorial tailgating, and perhaps one of only a handful we'll ever have again.

So get down there, have some fun, eat some grilled grub and try to remain vertical until kickoff at least. WPS!
