The Showgram: Should Tyler Wilson Play Against Alabama? Is ULM The Worst Razorback Loss Ever?

by Chris Bahn 9/13/2012 8:19 am

Welcome to the Showgram. It's the collaborative effort of ArkansasSports360.com editor Chris Bahn and Adam Alter, assistant sports director of KNWA/KARK Razorback Nation. Think of it as sports radio at your convenience. Sports talk shouldn't be available only when you're parked at your desk or stuck in drive time. This week's episode begins with a breakdown of the colossal breakdown that was ULM 34, Arkansas 31 (OT).

Jim Harris: As Hogs Learn, When Leader Is Sidelined, A Fall Comes Fast

by Jim Harris 9/12/2012 1:29 pm

We haven't heard one person anywhere say that Arkansas would have lost Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe had fifth-year senior quarterback Tyler Wilson been on the field in the second half. Not only would Wilson have continued to go over the top of ULM's gambling, pressuring defense for touchdowns to Cobi Hamilton, Mekale McKay, Chris Gragg and others, but Wilson would also have been that towering figure of sideline strength for the Razorbacks even if Louisiana-Monroe somehow caught fire and matched him score for score over the final two quarters. But, as we know too well, Wilson wasn't even on the Arkansas sideline in the second half, much less playing. His apparent concussion had sent him off to a hospital Saturday night as the ceiling fell in on the Hogs.

[VIDEO] Bahn: There's A Price To Pay For Razorbacks Losing To ULM, How Big Is It?

by Chris Bahn 9/11/2012 3:00 pm

Losing to a team like Louisiana-Monroe comes with a cost. Arkansas’ hope here is that the losses are limited to dropping out of the AP Top 25 poll and failing to reap the benefits of the marketing value that comes with college football’s most popular pregame show.

Razorbacks Make Sure 2012 Season Goes Down In College Football, Arkansas History

by Chris Bahn 9/10/2012 10:34 am

Arkansas wanted to make history this year. Just probably not like this. Thanks to ULM 34, Arkansas 31 (OT) on Saturday, the 2012 Razorbacks have left their mark on Arkansas football and the college game.

Doc Harper: For Arkansas Razorbacks, The Bobby Petrino Era Is Dead

by Doc Harper 9/10/2012 8:31 am

The loss to Louisiana-Monroe stings, but it also means the Arkansas Razorbacks are through looking backward at the Bobby Petrino era and will now look forward to the remainder of the season and whatever lies beyond, which will no doubt include a new coach.

Bahn: Odd As It Might Sound, Tyler Wilson Is Right: Jacksonville State Is A Statement Game

by Chris Bahn 8/31/2012 3:00 pm

Every yard covered on Frank Broyles Field in Razorback Stadium this weekend against Jacksonville State provides more distance between the Razorbacks and the offseason. Quarterback Tyler Wilson says the game is a chance for the Razorbacks to make a "statement." And he's right.

3-And-Out: Highsmith, Tank Wright Together Again; Razorbacks Get Younger On Returns

by Chris Bahn 8/30/2012 7:07 am

In theory, Alonzo Highsmith and Tenarius Wright playing alongside each other at linebacker is a good thing for Arkansas. Highsmith is the team’s top returning tackler and led the team in tackles for loss last season. Wright hasn’t played the position since high school, but has the size and the leadership needed in the middle. Their rapport off the field is solid and could help chemistry on the field. Only trouble is, injuries have kept them from getting on the field together. They’ve been alongside each other for the first time in a long time this week.

Jim Harris: Watch Football Evolve Before Your Very Eyes

by Jim Harris 8/29/2012 12:48 pm

A fascinating story surfaced on the Internet last week about the success of the newfangled offenses in college football at such outposts as Stillwater, Okla., and Morgantown, W.Va. The common thread in those places is, of course, Dana Holgerson, who was offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State in 2010 after a stint with former Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin (now at Texas A&M) and then became head coach at West Virginia. Oklahoma State was even better last year, not missing a beat with 28-year-old Brandon Weeden at quarterback and wunderkind Justin Blackmon at receiver.

Doc Harper: Petrino’s Departure Could Set Mythic Tone For Razorbacks’ Season

by Doc Harper 8/27/2012 5:00 pm

Bobby Petrino's messy offseason departure reminded me of a story. Several stories, in fact. There is a style of storytelling dating back to ancient mythology that is still used in modern stories like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and many more. It’s called “the hero’s journey.” One of the most important tenets of this type of narrative is that the hero is only able to truly thrive once he/she has gone through a severe ordeal that usually results in the loss of the mentor.

Jim's Notebook: Hog Fans Wild About Current Team; First Tee Grand Opening

by Jim Harris 8/24/2012 2:15 pm

Last Saturday's Arkansas football scrimmage in Fayetteville drew an estimated 15,000 fans, and I have no doubt that tonight, if there is a chance to see Knile Davis actually be tackled plus another chance to get autographs as at last week's Fan Day, the turnout would maybe double last week's. The numbers of fans willing to wait hours for autographs last week and then to wait five hours to see a scrimmage says that Hog Nation is as excited about these Razorbacks as any UA team ever.

Jim Harris: Bobby Petrino's 2012 Recruiting Apparently Finished With Flourish

by Jim Harris 8/22/2012 8:25 am

If a college football recruiting class is best defined by the last four or five signees in that 25-man group — and a few recruiting experts believe that to be the case — then Arkansas fans may look back on Bobby Petrino's last Razorback class as being his best. The last two recruits who committed to the 2012 class, Mekale McKay and Otha Peters, are likely to have a big part of the 2012 team, if preseason practice is any indication.
