"Bring on the Cocks." No, it is not just Paris Hilton's motto, but it also the mentality around the Broyles Complex this week in preparation for Saturday's SEC Network Broadcast battle with the South Carolina Gamecocks. A mental toughness that was reborn with the victory over EMU (not the gamy tasting bird but the Eagles) is once again apparent even after the letdown against Ole Miss.

Steve Spurrier's team attempts to invade Donald W. Reynold's on a letdown of their own after falling victim to a way less than average Tennessee Volunteers squad. Can "the Old Ball Coach" get his team ready for a road game against the passing offense of Bobby Petrino? Is the competitive nature of the once-ranked Gamecock team ready to burn itself in their bellies again?

What about Arkansas? Are the Razorbacks prepared for what has to be a winning streak to close out the regular season? To be bowl eligible, the Hogs now have to beat two of their next four games consisting of South Carolina, Troy, Mississippi State, and Louisiana State University. But the spirited Hogs do not want to settle for getting two out of four and going to just any bowl that would make a used car salesman happy. No, even with a BCS bowl out of their grasp, this team has the dedication and knows that they have the ability to have the door to one of the remaining upper-tier bowls.

Whether or not they can complete the first step is yet to be determined, but a cool day on 'The Hill' Saturday will give us more insight.

Go HOGS!!!
