On one of the rare Little Rock game days, here we present, for those on the fence about seeing the Hogs take on the Dogs, five reasons to go. Plus, the Arkansas Blog has the latest on the HDN soap opera, and  A boy named Sooie is as on point as ever.

ARKANSAS VS. MISSISSIPPI STATE
1 p.m., War Memorial. Sold out.

After last weekend, a lot of dyed-in-the-wool Razorback fans might rather stay home and rake leaves than see the Hogs take on the Dogs on Saturday. In anticipation of that apathy, here are five reasons to swallow it and go cheer: 1. Drinking and eating copious amounts of grilled meats is fun no matter how much the Hogs under-perform. 2. Watching football in short sleeves in mid-November makes for a good anecdote about how crazy Arkansas weather is. 3. Even though Mississippi State is dramatically improved since last year, we'll still probably beat them. 4. It'll probably be our last win of the season. 5. Unless you're a super-fan, it'll be your last chance to catch Peyton Hillis, Marcus Monk, Felix Jones (fingers crossed after that deep thigh bruise) and the greatest running back to ever don Razorback red. Even if they might serve as a reminder for what could've been, an I-was-there image of their individual brilliance might come in handy in the next two years, when, even without Nutt, we're still likely to suck. At this point, I'm just hoping for one last muscle-man pose from McFadden.
