Arkansas 47, Texas A&M 19

In an albeit dismal start to the 2009 Arkansas Razorback season........we 4 Blackfords have one small bright spot: HAVING 365 DAYS OF INTRA-FAMILY BRAGGING RIGHTS!!!!

Yes, after a slow 1st quarter start, the Razorbacks delivered a punishing air attack on Saturday to send the Aggies packing in a 47-19 rout.

In advance of the game, both my sister (Mary Prosser) and I traded traditional Aggie & Razorback barbs, both of us acknowledging neither team would be likely to be bowl bound.......kinda a "battle of the biggest losers". The Razorbacks are 2-2 and Aggies are 3-1 (wins over UAB, NM & Utah St).

As a fan, it was great to see two former Southwest Conference teams play and remember the history of long-gone Razorback greats in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 2000's that also included Stacey's Uncle, Dad and Grandfather: Hartford, Preston & Ray Hamilton.

This one's for you Mary:
