The power of the Arkansas hemicurse may have been slightly exaggerated. Despite busting his toe up in a parking lot scuffle, the fiberoptic pulse-fast running back Darren McFadden of the Arkansas Razorbacks will allegedly play quality minutes against USC, according to 790 the Zone here in Atlanta. We'll translate the results of this revelation mathematically:
Last year's result: 70--17, USC. McFadden played and ran like a banshee.
-7 (Playing in Fayetteville)
-14 (Replacing two Heisman winners.)
-7 (Presence of only SEC mascot to be shot after killing spree)
+7 (Point bump if Johnson busts Trojans all day long)
Product: 42-24, USC
See? Math is easy.
Presence of killer mascot good for 7 points alone.
