Razorbacks It Is Time

                                             IS THE SEC THE RIGHT FIT?

I have seen this topic come up between fans and on the net over the years and although I am not a Razorback fan I decided to give my opinion on it. Should Arkansas move to another Power 5 conference when the chance comes? To put it politely yes.

In my opinion the Razorbacks will never win the SEC. I am not fully sure why they have some a hard time having success in the league but they are on the whole mediocre at best. Yes the SEC is considered the best conference in the NCAA FBS level. Yes you get tons of money and TV time in the league. Yes you even have a shot going to a bowl game at 5-7. But is money really worth being in a league you will never win?

Arkansas fans have stated “Arkansas State will always win championships and go to bowl games, they play in the Sun Belt.” and yes we probably will continue our success. But, we didn’t always have this success. And I much rather be in a conference I can win than one I can’t. Arkansas has even in recent years lost to teams that are from the Group of 5. So what is the future of Arkansas in the SEC?

If Arkansas fans are okay being a mediocre team in the SEC and are okay collecting tons of money then hey that is your goal and you will be happy then. But if you the fans want championships and chances to play in the play off then the athletic department really needs to consider going to another Power 5 conference and stop being the Kansas of the SEC.

Just the thoughts of an Arkansas State Red Wolves fan. Do what is best for your program. Right now Arkansas State is in the conference that is best for our program. Things will change as we continue to build on our 6 years of success. Razorback fans do best to stop worrying about stAte and worry about the future of your program.

So what do you think? Should the Razorbacks get out of the SEC? If so which conference would you like to see them in?

Why I Choose Nintendo

MY TWO COINS ON THE CONSOLE WAR

I haven’t played a Nintendo console or game since I was a young fat kid. As a fat guy I have been all Sony…then I went to Microsoft. But as games began to be more about graphics and less story driven creative achievements, I started  wanting to play older games rather than the new ones. The problem with games these days is for the most part it is the same games just made by a different company trying to copy them. Or it is the same game just better graphics, story sucks and game play is not fun. There are a few games that come along that are great like The Last of Us , Uncharted and the early days of Metal Gear Solid and  Final Fantasy. For Microsoft, Halo…well the early Halo games. There are others but you get my point, good games are on the decline.

And now all the hype seems to be who has the bigger-better-powerful system and the creators are forgetting the most important things, the fun factor and story. Screw best graphics. Mafia 3 looked good but sucked! Halo 5 looked good but sucked! A game comes out way too early and at launch it is a mess, but have no fear a patch will fix that, terrible! Then all these FPS games focus is mainly just online multiplayer with bad or no single player campaigns.

About a year ago I started to consider going to Nintendo, where it all started, where I fell in love with games. The Wii U at the time seem to be going down hill, sells where bad and not many games in the works. So I went back to the last gen consoles for a while and played some really great games with great story. But even then most of the games where again pretty much the same, missing something, missing the fun factor. But now the Nintendo Switch is coming and I am all on board. Graphics look good so far from what I seen. It is a console that you can take with you for crying out loud!! Games for the casual gamer and hardcore gamer. And I have always liked buying hard copies over digital, Sony and Microsoft force you to download the games either way and takes up so much space. So the fact that the Switch gives you an option is a huge selling point for me as well.

Nintendo has always lead the way in new ways to play and their games are known for being fun, taking you to magical worlds. A way to enjoy a game with friends on your couch in the same room. Games that can appeal to everyone, that are DIFFERENT and GAME CHANGING. These are the reasons I am all Nintendo now. Sony and Xbox have lost the vision of what a great game really is. Not a way to see who has the bigger equipment. Besides, we all know who really wins that battle right…PC!

I have read and watched so many hatters in the last week about how Nintendo sucks, the Switch will fail,  and all the hate between Sony and Microsoft over the years, I had to let everyone know my choice and my reason. Just pick the console for you and let us enjoy ours. So there is my thoughts, my two cents on the topic.

Happy Gaming everyone.

Screenplay Writer

Hello, my name is Charperrin, 32 divorced male with a dream of directing films. I am getting started, buying all my equipment etc. Right now I am writing my own screenplays but I am no writer. I would like to find someone who has the same passion for filmmaking as I do and who is trying to chase a dream like me. I want to eventually put a film in festivals and win awards with the hope of getting noticed. If this speaks to your soul please contact me and we can discuss my plans and vision.
