[quote]How long will the Arkansas gloating last?[/quote]
Gloating over what? Clinching last place in the SEC West in October? Completing their 23rd year in the conference with still no SEC titles? Managing to get bowl eligible for the first time in three years? What on earth could they possibly h...

Depends on the metric you use. Arky has played in three SEC championship games, including one in their fourth year in the conference. They've yet to win one, despite a close call in 2006....

Not sure. No coach ever has. Of course, only one coach has ever lasted 13 years at LSU, regardless of conference championships. But that one, Charles McClendon, lasted 18 years with only one conference ...

He will not be fired any time soon. He could lose this game, lose the bowl and have a losing season next year and he'd still be the coach in 2016 if he wanted to be.

No. Nothing that happens in this game, good or bad, will have any major effect. It can't make this season a good one, nor can it make it a disastrous one. It's a down year, possibly a rebuilding year, no matter what happens tomorrow night. Every potential for i...

It would be better if that were true, but it's not. A deeper problem exists in our program. Well, several actually.
One, Miles isn't a disciplinarian. It's a very easygoing atmosphere and you don't really have to try very hard to keep up. (e.g....
