Apparently that’s that.
According to local radio and TV reports from Fayetteville, Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson has not been cleared by doctors and will not play tomorrow against top-ranked Alabama. Wilson suffered a concussion last Saturday. He also suffered a concussion last year. (Don’t think NFL GMs won’t consider that next April.)
That’s a tough break for Wilson, a tough break for the Razorbacks, and a really tough break for John L. Smith. If the loss to Louisiana-Monroe didn’t guarantee his departure from Fayetteville at year’s end, what’s likely to occur when Arkansas starts a backup against Bama probably will.
Brandon Allen went 6-of-20 for 85 yards with a TD and an interception when he was thrown in against Louisiana-Monroe last weekend. As ULM proved, anything’s possible… but if Arkansas upsets the Crimson Tide with a backup quarterback, it’ll go down in the Hog history books.
