It’s “Predict the Score” time again as the Texas A&M Aggies take on the Arkansas Razorbacks in Dallas at 2:30 CST this coming Saturday. After blowing through their opener against the Gamecocks in South Carolina, thereby shocking the football world, and then rolling over and through Lamar, Rice and SMU, as Billy Liucci of TexAgs recently wrote, “Let the (real) games begin (again).

The Aggies, who have been amazingly good (as in ranked 6th) will now be thoroughly tested by facing Arkansas, #14 Mississippi State in Starkville, #10 Ole Miss at Kyle and finally traveling to #2 Alabama in what many call the toughest 4-game stretch in program history.Texas A&M Aggies vs Arkansas Razorbacks

The Razorbacks are not the same team as they were last season, in case you haven’t been paying attention. They own an SEC-leading rushing attack, with Alex Collins, Jonathan Williams and Korliss Marshall combining for 188 yards on 36 carries. Their QB, Brandon Allen threw for two touchdowns and ran for another. In other words, Arkansas is playing tough, explosive and mad, and the Aggies need to forget about their own 4-0 start and play like they have something to prove.

The Aggies have all the talent in the world, especially on offense. It’s certainly enough to beat the Razorbacks; there’s no doubt about that. But does their much-improved defense have the strength and determination to stop the Hogs’ rushing attack? We’ll see very soon.

Shuffling cards has been the bane of many a poor soul; a lot of them just can’t seem to get it quite right. They end up folding the cards or they shuffle them so many times that they wear the suits right off of them. So we asked some pros what they thought was the right number of times a deck should be shuffled. The answers we got ran the gamut from down right absurd, to hilarious and even to some well thought out mathematical formula that supposedly figures that the right number of times for a deck of 52 cards would be 7 times for them to be sufficiently mixed, that according to Persi Diaconis as reported in the New York Times several years ago.

That is way too much for us, and we’re sure, most poker players to worry about. We just play the game and as long as you don’t shuffle like Moe of the Three Stooges  in this video, then we’re good. But if all you can do is what Mo does, then maybe you should just pick up a good automatic card shuffler and get on with the game.
