or What Can Browns Do For You?
If you haven’t noticed by now, here’s a clue: It’s football season.
The “Voice of the Razorbacks,” Chuck Barrett, gives sports updates and infoblurbs throughout the day on the radio on ESPN 92.1 “The Ticket.” On Monday, Sept. 27, Chuck gave a shout-out in the radio blurbs to former Hogs playing in the NFL for their Sunday stats, including noting Darren McFadden’s 105 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Oakland Raiders and Felix Jones’ 43 yards rushing for the Dallas Cowboys.
But why no love for Peyton Hillis? Sure, the former Razorback is suffering through a season with the 0-3 Cleveland Browns, but Hillis had a career day with 144 yards rushing and a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens.
Yeah, the Baltimore Ravens. The first time an individual — let alone a team — broke the 100-yard mark rushing against the Ravens this year.
But luckily it’s just sports news.
Sure, everyone in Hog country wants to know how McFadden and Jones are faring in the NFL. It’s great to see McFadden getting a chance to prove his worth, even on such a hapless team as the Raiders.
But when a former Razorback has that kind of day — 144 yards and a TD on a terrible Cleveland team against a Baltimore defense — you have to let everyone know it’s time to yell “Woo Pig Sooie!”
