It’s been an offseason of bad life choices for the Razorbacks, even though it’s only May, and even discounting entirely l’affaire Hawgpanky. We had Jason Peacock using a stolen debit card to ring up a whopping $35 of fraudulent gas pump charges in March, Tyler Gilbert involved in the theft of “camouflage military clothing, a plastic purple and gold Jason hockey mask, two dog collars and and four $20 bills” in April, and now Marquel Wade, Maudrecus Humphrey and Andrew Peterson caught in an astonishingly poorly thought-out dorm-burgling spree:
Wade was charged Saturday with one felony count of burglary. Humphrey, a junior, and Peterson, a redshirt freshman, are both charged with nine felony counts of burglary. [...]
Some of the stolen items were recovered from a bookstore near campus, along with in Peterson’s room, and the report said a store clerk identified the three as regularly selling used items.
Real criminal masterminding at work here. If all felony charges stand, the Razorbacks will edge TCU out in that lovable offseason diversion, the Fulmer Cup standings, where they’re tied with Washington State for sixth place as of this writing. Give them credit for singleminded teamwork, if nothing else. But now all we can think about is this:
How awesome would it have been if Arkansas had hired Fulmer and then immediately went and won the Fulmer Cup?
