The Hookstead Curse Is Alive — Arkansas Falls To TCU In Hilarious Fashion
It looks like the Hookstead Curse is alive and well for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
I had toyed with the idea of leaving the Arkansas football alone this season. I felt they had been through enough. I had destroyed their 2016 season after their fans and media outlets decided to attack me for simply questioning Bret Bielema’s story about how he met his wife. Their program got obliterated the rest of the way after “Bielemagate” began in late September.
I felt it might be too much to destroy back-to-back seasons. I said I would not engaged with the program if they agreed to bend the knee. It looked like we had found a ceasefire.
Then some Arkansas media member decided to pop off, and guess what? The Razorbacks haven’t won a game since. Saturday afternoon they fell to TCU 28-7.
It was beautiful.
The Razorbacks looked outmatched, and they crumbled late in the game. Naturally, Bielema looked like a child who couldn’t swim and had been thrown in the middle of the ocean. Classic Bielema coaching. Hype up the team, trot them onto the field and watch them get lit up.
Good luck to Arkansas fans everywhere, but always remember whatever happens for the rest of the season was your own fault. I was willing to let this whole thing go. However, I warned the fanbase there would be consequences if they tried to come at me. Well, they didn’t listen and they’re 0-1 since. Have fun. I’m sure it’ll only get easier from here.
Long live the Hookstead Curse.
