I want to cry.
Now that everyone has had a night and most of a day to calm down and be rational (HAHAYEAHRIGHTEVERYTHINGSUCKS), it seems like we should give all of you the chance to say just how bad the La-Mo defeat actually is. Is it the worst loss in Razorback history? I originally thought no, at least not worse than The Citadel. The Warhawks are an FBS team, at least. Then I stopped to consider other aspects of the defeat, like the injuries, knowing we lost GameDay in Fayetteville next week, the second worst AP poll drop in history, the doom of thinking about the rest of the season, the anger toward Petrino (both). And now I think I'd have to put it as the second worst loss ever, only behind the 1969 Texas game. But what do you think? How low of a moment is this in Razorback history?
