Brenner: Beware the air, Hogs’ QB-WR combo can’t be taken lightly

A hundred and ten to ten.

That’s the ugly margin by which Arkansas has been splattered all over the SEC canvas, the dual product of losing 52-0 at home to top-ranked Alabama and, worse, 58-10 at conference newbie Texas A&M.

The OT shocker against Louisiana-Monroe and another home defeat to so-so Rutgers fills out the demise of Arkansas.

But here’s a trip through memory lane. Once upon a time, Arkansas was ranked No. 8 in the country. It has quarterback Tyler Wilson, who holds 12 school passing records, throwing to Cobi Hamilton, whose 18.2 yards per catch is better than any other active Division I wide receiver.

That’s no fairy tale. All of that is 100 percent true, and while the Razorbacks certainly aren’t going to be listed on any AP voter’s ballot for a long, long time, Wilson and Hamilton haven’t gone anywhere.

Auburn coach Gene Chizik is absolutely right to offer Arkansas perhaps the highest compliment you can offer a team which could not defeat an FBS opponent in September: “they’re dangerous.”
