13,440

that is how many minutes it is until kickoff for the USC vs Arkansas game next Saturday night in Reynold's Razorback Stadium…

i will admit that in my previous 30 football seasons watching and anticipating Arkansas football, I don't believe I can EVER remember a season with as much hype, anticipation, dread, fear, anxiety, hope, and despair all rolled into one pre-season..

here we are though, only a little over 9 days away and the buzz around The Hill is just getting more and more electric…

my season seats this year have moved…

we moved from the 50 yard line first row over to the Red Zone….
we went from hard, old, aluminum bleacher rows to comfortable, theatre-style, chair back seats in the South endzone..
we have two tickets on row 4 and two tickets on row 5 in section 123….
this is the center section of the south endzone which means I am only 20 rows from all needed concessions behind me…
and I can simply tilt my head ever so slightly to look up and I can watch the entire game on the monstrous scoreboard video monitor….
talk about luck for this year…

I think my getting these tickets is just a sign…

we have 12 games this year, 8 of which are in the state…
we start with #3 (or #5 depending upon the poll) USC opening weekend at home under the lights of ESPNHD….
while the game will more than likely be closer than last years humiliating debacle in LA, i still see it as a long shot to win…
that being said, I am going to predict a 9 – 3 record this season and either a Peach or Cotton Bowl trip…
next year will be THE year I believe for this team…

but anyways, so now it is only 13, 431 minutes to kick-off….

i can almost smell the brawts now….
