5 questions about Arkansas

Tom Murphy of The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette answers five questions about the Razorbacks.

The SEC is dominant because the South cares more about football.

What's clear to me now more than ever isn't just that the South is better at college football. It's that the South cares more than any region of the country about this game and this Saturday ritual of worshiping it.


They can never take a national championship away from you once you've won it. But let's say you're offered a trade in advance: Your team can win the national title at a given point in the next five years, but in return, your team will subsequently suffer through the worst season in program history, fire the title-winning coach, hire his former assistant and start nearly from scratch, as if the program wasn't merely years removed from a championship.

How about it? As with anything else, the answer to the question is relative. New Mexico State takes that trade, obviously. Kansas State does the same, if only to give Bill Snyder one final achievement for his résumé. In the SEC, I'd imagine that Mississippi State, Mississippi, Missouri, Vanderbilt, South Carolina – every team without a title to its name would make that trade.

But what about Auburn?
