Hard times

comment

Soulwise, these are trying times for Razorback sports fans, about as bad as we can remember.

The women's basketball coach has just been fired, unable to compete with the powerhouses of SEC women's basketball. The men's basketball team has been painfully inconsistent against opponents who are hardly powerhouses themselves. The men's football coach has been all too consistent. The track and field team wins consistently, but few bother to watch it, and even fewer spend money on it. Even the gymnastics team has been less than we'd hoped for. When you can't be successful with nubile young women flying through the air, you're really out of luck. Personally, we're ready to take up curling. Everybody watches. We don't understand why, but they do.
