After a devastating 51-10 loss in an SEC showdown against Texas A&M, it's painfully clear that the Arkansas Razorbacks cannot catch a break. 

The infamy of the 2012 Razorbacks was first established after a Week 2 loss to small-school Louisiana Monroe, which knocked the top-10 Razorbacks out of the rankings all together. 

Then, Arkansas had a perfect shot at redemption with No. 1 Alabama next on the schedule. But a dagger was put through their hearts after an embarrassing 52-0 loss in front of their home crowd. 

The disappointment continued in Week 4, as the Razorbacks were overwhelmed by Rutgers in a much more competitive 35-26 loss. 

Now, after another humiliating blowout loss, the Razorbacks have been handed their fourth consecutive defeat thanks to Texas A&M. 

According to ESPN, the loss is not just disappointing, it's also somewhat historic (according to Twitter):

#ARKvsTAMU 15 minutes from being official. Arkansas will join '84 Pittsburgh as only preseason top-10 teams to lose 4 times before October.

A top-10 team entering the 2012 season, the Razorbacks haven't come close to living up to their potential, and they haven't even remotely resembled a typical SEC team. 

Against Texas A&M, the Razorbacks had their secondary torn to shreds, as the Aggies picked up nearly 500 yards through the air and over 700 yards of total offense.  

Tyler Wilson, the prized quarterback for Arkansas, was highly inefficient, completing less than 50 percent of his passes and coughing up two interceptions. 

Things have been bleak for the Razorbacks. And with South Carolina, Mississippi State and LSU still on the schedule, things will only get worse. 

The 2012 season was supposed to be a memorable experience for the Fayetteville faithful, but now it has become a season they hope to forget.
