That would depend on measures taken to prevent the virus from becoming widespread. Ignoring how this type of disease is spread and not taking the right steps in preventing its widespread existence is definitely not ...

A severe pandemic could bring our economy to its knees, not to mention kill millions. All one has to do to understand the impact of such a thing is to read about the flu pandemic of 1918.

Every year over the 10 year period Nutt coached at Arkansas, the team never failed to follow their first SEC loss with another SEC loss (at least one). With his best 2 teams ('06, '07), he finished the '06 season with losses to LSU and Florida in the SEC Championship game and loses the bowl game to ...

This is generally true regarding Muslims and dogs. Since I've had acquaintances in the past who were Muslim, I viewed it as a chance to give them the opportunity to get to know my hound dog and conquer their phobia. It took some work. They're generally 'cat people'.
I was, however, able to conver...

| SEC Rant|| re: Everyone who thinks 2 SEC teams have a shot at getting to the playoff is wrong - Porky on 10/21/14 at 7:48 pm|
When the four teams are chosen, I could see there perhaps being more belly-aching, bitching, and gnashing of teeth directed toward the individuals on the playoff committee than than there has ever been in the history of college football. By design, a 4 team 'playoff' format is built for it.

[quote]He got absolutely destroyed on the blocked PAT in the Georgia game after our opening TD. He was on his backside at almost the exact same time the ball was being kicked.
Who knows if Henson saw that and it got in his head for that split second, but that blocked PAT was on Kirkland.[/quote]
| Arkansas Sports Board|| re: Who is our Special Teams coach? - Porky on 10/21/14 at 10:15 am|
[quote]True, but Kirkland in particular was at fault in at least two of those blocked kicks.
That very well may have been a factor. But kickers usually need to kick extra points with a somewhat steeper trajectory than with field goals. Think of it in terms of hitting a golf ball with a pi...
| Arkansas Sports Board|| re: Who is our Special Teams coach? - Porky on 10/21/14 at 9:41 am|
[quote]Also, the missed FG seemed to be more on blocking (Kirkland) than kicks, except for the Bama game. [/quote]
I remember two or three extra points being blocked. That's probably due to ball trajectory. Regarding field goals...the last one I remember was in the A&M game and it was so far off th...
