I should have sharpened my cipherin' chalk!
In my prediction earlier this week, I stated that it would be LSU 42 - Arkansas 12 (maybe 13). I really anticipated a 30 (or 29) point win.
We're just really good.
What I did not anticipate was my beloved Tigers giving up a defensive touchdown on a fumble. We just don't do such things. But, we did.
So, the poor Hawgz ended up with 17 points, instead of 10 (or 13, if they'd have been lucky enough to get in to feel go purzition after that fumble).
Plus, we only managed to eek out 41 points, instead of the 42 I figured we would. Good on the Hawgz!
(Of course, Corch Miles called a kneel down while we still could have scored another TD, or a feel go, and made me look smart with my 42 point perdiction...but that is now all water under the bridge. I mean, you can't un-ring a bell).
Regardless, the little piglets dun their best. They only lost twice this season. Twice to the #1 team in the nation (even though it was different teams). There ain't no shame in that whatsoever. Of course, they lost big to both teams, but still, there ain't no shame in losing to greatness.
