OK, I knew this already, but the game against Alabama just reinforced the lesson. It is hard to win a football game in the SEC. I drove down to Tulsa to watch the game at the Greater Tulsa Razorback Club watch party. They met at Indigo Joe’s, which is technically in Bixby. It is a great place for a watch party.
When I arrived, the main viewing area was full of LSU fans watching the Tigers play in Starkville. Their game ran a little long, so we had to wait to move where we could watch the wall of TVs.
When Arkansas held Alabama to 14 points in the first half and then scored the first touchdown of the second half, I thought we had a chance to make the game competitive. Like my friend Ken (HOGinBA) I was disappointed in the defense.
I think I will end this now and look ahead to the inaugural Southwest Classic, Texas A&M vs. Arkansas in Jerry’s World. I’m treating myself to the Arkansas Alumni Association travel package. I get two nights at the Hilton-Anatole, a party on Friday night, transportation to and from the game and access to a party/parade pre-game. It should be fun.
