Well, that's over. My...ahem, familiar refrain...throughout the game was that I hate it. I hate this game nearly every single year? Why? Same reason why the Ole Miss game is usually more interesting than it should be. Game's a rivalry to the opponent, not to the Tigers. LSU looked like they wanted to be in Fayetteville about as much as John L. Smith likes his financial advisors. No desire. Sucky game. Let's not do that again.    About the only thing that went LSU's way was the play of Jarvis Landry, but honestly, that surprises no one. His circus catch of the month of the year of the decade is the only saving grace of this game and it took that to make LSU fans not totally want to purge every memory of this game.  LSU was absolutely and thoroughly outplayed by Arkansas in every way you can think, except for coaching. The coaches gave absolutely no **** about this game and made conservative call after conservative call, continually letting LSU off the hook. 4th and 1, down a touchdown late in the game, Arkansas kicks a field goal. It was conservative calls like that that gave LSU any chance to win the game because by themselves they had no business winning it. Punting with 6 minutes left in the game when you're down? Yeah, that's a give up call if I ever saw one. This game is over with and LSU won inspite of themselves. That's the best thing an LSU fan can say about this trip to Fayetteville. It's best we just move on and dream of a possible BCS birth. We know the outcome of an LSU BCS game not against a divisional opponen: It's a satisfying beatdown of a pretty good team that sets up some nice lofty expectations for the next season and a high preseason ranking. Let's just forget this whole thing and move on to that.
