Ruscin’s Rant: 10-2 is the mark for Arkansas in ’17

Razorbacks will offer pleasant surprise this season, getting to 10 wins and even beat Alabama and LSU.

Yeah, I went there.

Why not have fun with something as trivial and silly as predicting the unpredictable?

7-5 is what Jim Rome would describe as triple U.

Unfunny.

Uninspired.

Unreadable.

I have Arkansas going 10-2 this season with losses to Texas A&M (again) and Auburn.

That means they will beat Alabama and LSU this year.

On the road.

Arkansas has never had trouble taking care of LSU, home or away, and I do not think Ed Orgeron is going to be a huge success down on the bayou.

As for Bama, Arkansas hung 30 on the national runner up last year in a loss!

This year they can hang 40 and get a win for the ages in Tuscaloosa.

Why so optimistic?

I believe in the upgrades in the talent on the roster. I work with some people who need to see to believe, but I am convinced based on the two training camp scrimmages that I saw with my own eyes. This is the most talented team since the Texas Bowl winning team in 2014.

While we were all groaning and complaining about the end of the Missouri and Virginia Tech games, the SEC became a little softer. Sure Bama still rules the roost, but who are you afraid of after that?

No matter how it actually plays out, this team is totally built in Bret Bielema’s image and will be the representation of what to expect at Arkansas going forward.
