YOU CAN'T EVER TAKE THAT AWAY FROM MARQUEL WADE

Wesley Hitt

Oh, offseason. You make us forget so many things: the joy of football, hope, the desire to live, and that once, on a dark day in 2011, Marquel Wade danced in the neighborhood the possibly dead body of Vanderbilt's Jonathan Krause. You can do a lot of things as a player to be remembered, but the one that always sticks with us is leveling another player in a hit so brazen and obviously forbidden by the rules that you're thrown not just out of the game, but out of society, off the planet, and possibly out of the solar system. No one can ever take that away from you, sir.

So you should watch that and remember a few things: that Arkansas in 2011 was coached by Bobby Petrino, and blissfully unaware of the greased express slide into football hell it was about to jump down headfirst; that Vanderbilt didn't "almost win this game," but instead blew a 21-7 lead with a key Zach Stacy fumble as the killing blow; and that Marquel Wade did in fact freak out, sort of celebrate nearly decapitating someone on the football field, and get ejected in a call so easy even Marc Curles could make it. Oh, and remember who the other person really recruiting the hell out of Wade was: RON ZOOK, BABY.

P.S. You might still be mad at Marquel Wade, too, but don't be. He's in jail right now, and jail sucks, Tina Fey. There's a deep sadness in the pit of our stomach right now, and it's probably because we just thought about Arkansas football before noon.
