I would have never have guessed that our little brothers at Baylor and TCU would have had the success they have had in the last decade or so. I can't remember them ever being good back in the SWC days. We always expected to beat them and did. Houston was good back in the late 1980s when I started following the Razorbacks. For that reason, their current success surprises me less. I remember they were one of the first programs to go real pass heavy with that run and shoot offense.

That said, all these smaller Texas programs have the potential to be good with the right coach given the size of that state and the amount of high school talent it produces. Baylor, TCU and now Houston have proven that for all to see.

I bet this part of our schedule is bringing back a lot of memories for older Arkansas fans. We play TAMU in Arlington in two weeks. It should be another great game with them. The atmosphere at this game is always electric. Arkansas and TAMU both have a lot of inspiring band music and rowdy fans. It gets really loud in Cowboy's Stadium when we play them down there. Tune in if you want to watch a great college football game and atmosphere. I doubt it will disappoint.
