Crystal Ball 2014 — Bowl Game And Proposition Bets

Now that we’ve predicted a not-so-stellar win-loss record for the Razorbacks in 2014, what about a bowl game?

So…uh…yeah…where is this ‘None’ Bowl and why the heck are we playing some school called ‘N/A’ in it?  :-)  But seriously…we can promise right now if Jonathan Williams busts a long touchdown run in the Duck Commander Bowl, we will absolutely tweet out “HE GONE.”

And finally, just like Vegas, here are a few ‘proposition bets‘ — interesting side bets that we’re making a month before the ball is snapped.

    Breakout Player: Korliss, we might as well go with one name now.
    I’m all for long term, smash mouth, defensive football. No short cuts, build the foundation, a little bravado is a good thing, some swagger, fine. But, if your second string QB is your first string tight end you should have brought in a juco for some competition. Two of the last three SEC Championship QBs came from juco. Using your head to put a team on the field is not a short cut.
