Arkansas Razorbacks: What We Learned In Week 7, What To Look For In Week 8

+Read full article

Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports

The rest of the SEC is starting to feel sorry for the Arkansas Razorbacks (3-4, 0-3), which have now lost four-straight games, matching first-year coach Bret Bielema‘s longest losing streak of his career.

The former-Wisconsin coach dropped four straight while with the Badgers in 2008, but none were worse than Saturday’s 45-point defeat.

After South Carolina destroyed the Razorbacks 52-7 and ruined its homecoming, head ball coach Steve Spurrier said what everyone else is thinking. “I do feel badly for Arkansas,” he said. “It’s no fun getting your butt beat like this, at home on homecoming and all that.”

It’s hard to find any positives from a game in which you’re held to seven first downs, total 30 passing yards, convert only 2-of-7 third downs, turn the ball over three times and manage to maintain possession for a pitiful 16 minutes and 35 seconds. Meanwhile, your opponent goes for a whopping 32 first downs, 537 yards, converts 9-of-16 third downs and 5-of-5 fourth downs while keeping its offense on the field for more than two-thirds of the 60 minutes.

“Today is a day that you have to put it in the memory bank and vow that you’ll never let it happen again as a head coach, as an assistant coach, a coordinator and a player,” Bielema said. “Just unacceptable.”

Unfortunately, it’s probably going to happen again very soon, and maybe more than once.

The Razorbacks are 0-3 in the SEC for the first time since 2007, and there’s little reason to believe they can win any of the remaining games on the schedule – at No. 1 Alabama, No. 24 Auburn, at Ole Miss, Mississippi State and at No. 6 LSU.

What to look for in Week 8: The shortest route from Bryant-Denny Stadium to the Tuscaloosa airport. It’s going to be a quiet plane ride back to Fayetteville Saturday night.

On top of the game being decided in overtime, it was also a shootout (Big 12 style). The two incredible plays below also came about in OT, which helped lead Arkansas to a 53-52 victory.

College football, folks. College football.
