Kneauxing the Enemy
Record, 2-8 overall, 0-6 SEC
Arkansas has not won a game in two months. They fired their head coach, Chad Morris, less than two weeks ago. They have not won a league game since the 2017 season. Arkansas has not had a winning SEC record since the 2015 campaign. The Hogs have given up an average of nearly 50 points a game over their last four games. The Razorbacks are in the bottom four in every major offensive category in conference play, and they are worse on defense.
Arkansas averages 353 yards of total offense per game. This is only forty yards less than a two loss Michigan team in the Big Ten. However, the Hogs reside in the SEC West with the likes of LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, Auburn. They have to do a little better than 353 yards per game.
The Razorbacks feature the third leading rusher in the SEC in junior Rakeem Boyd. He has rushed for 1005 yards this year with eight touchdowns. He averages 6.7 yards per rush.
Their leading receiver is freshman Treylon Burks, who has 389 yards in receiving for the season. That is not enough to be competitive.
The offensive line has allowed 16 sacks for the season, not good, but not bad.
The Hogs allow 447 yards of total offense per game, an obscene amount even in this age of high octane offense.
On defense, the Razorbacks have a pretty good sack duo in defensive linemen Mctelvin Agim and Jamario Bell, both seniors. Agim has five sacks for the season and Bell has four.
De'Jon Harris, a senior is the third leading tackler in the league. Harris, a linebacker, has 82 total tackles, 39 unassisted.
It is hard to say anything good about the Razorbacks, because they have done few things well this season. The only thing they do consistently is lose, and it is not all the players' fault.
The Purple and Gold can clinch the SEC West with a win this Saturday, and it should happen unless someone slips moonshine in their Gatorade.
