Do You Have That Nasty Feeling in Your Gut?
You know, the one that you get after eating a dozen hot wings, a plate of nachos, and a bratwurst while sitting on your ass and drinking half a case of domestic swill? Congratulations, then, you're an American. I hope everyone enjoyed their Super Bowl Sundays. I sure did.

Buckner dominates as Rebels top Hogs | The Commercial Appeal
Reggie Buckner almost single-handedly defeated the Razorbacks on Saturday. The forward was in beastmode, just as he was in the upset victory over Kentucky. Let's hope this is the beginning of a trend for the big man.

I find it hysterical that Kyle Veazey needs to warn his readers of an impending use of mathematics. "GET YOUR VOODOO OUT OF MY WHOLESOME PAPER KV!" Regardless, the biggest takeaway I find with this is that, when Buckner tallies more blocks than usual (let's say 4+), the Rebels do well. There's a correlation vs causality issue, of course, but it's fair to say that his defensive presense is a major key to Rebel victories.
