Jim’s Notebook: Cleaning Up With Some Last Tidbits, On Mustain, Hog Basketball, Football

by Jim Harris 11/2/2012 1:14 pm

National recruiting guru Tom Lemming said this week that former Arkansas quarterback Mitch Mustain's transfer to Southern Cal was the "biggest mistake of his life." Meanwhile, basketball fans in Central Arkansas got some good news with an early schedule of speakers at the Tip Off Club. And if Arkansas is to conquer any of its remaining four football foes, the Hogs need to find more wide receiving weapons.

Jim Harris: Wilson, Arkansas Leave Too Many Points On Field In Loss To Ole Miss

by Jim Harris 10/27/2012 5:59 pm

For yet another Ole Miss game at War Memorial Stadium, Arkansas was left mulling the “ifs.” It wasn’t as heartbreaking as the famed 1960 game decided on an official’s questionable call on a field goal. And it wasn’t as bad as the 1990 game here, where the Hogs outgained the Rebels 3 to 1 and still lost 21-17, denied at the goal line on the game’s final play. But it was close. This one also came down to the game’s final play, a 31-yard Bryson Rose field goal for a 30-27 Ole Miss win. The Razorbacks were left lamenting how many scoring opportunities were wasted by poor execution.

3-And-Out: Gragg Ready To Play For Razorbacks, Talk With Mom Inspires Johnson

by Chris Bahn 10/24/2012 7:24 am

Arkansas looked strong on offense in beating Kentucky 49-7 two weeks ago even though the Razorbacks weren’t full strength. They’re optimistic that having tight end Chris Gragg back for Ole Miss will provide an additional threat. Gragg has been out since the first quarter of a 35-26 loss to Rutgers.

3-and-Out: Gragg Returns To Practice, Offense Protecting The Football

by Chris Bahn 10/17/2012 12:00 am

Arkansas found some points to go with its offensive yards against Kentucky. Offensive coordinator Paul Petrino points to the lack of turnovers by the Razorbacks. They didn’t have an interception or fumble for the first time this season and were able to score on six consecutive possessions to open the game and on seven of their first eight drives.

3-And-Out: Wilson 'Fine' In Practice Following Accident; Razorbacks Prepare Without Gragg

by Chris Bahn 10/10/2012 6:49 am

Tyler Wilson’s ability to take a hit and keep throwing was on display again Tuesday. Hours after a mid-morning accident on Interstate 540 the Arkansas quarterback was on the field, going through practice with the Razorbacks.

Jim Harris: Petrino's Recruiting Shortcomings Coincide With State Talent Falling Off

by Jim Harris 10/4/2012 8:00 am

While many Arkansas fans would like to believe that Bobby Petrino could wave a wand and coach anyone with two legs to victories galore in the Southeastern Conference, let’s also agree that the talent in Arkansas in 2007-08 was fortuitous for a pass-happy coach. That’s how you go 21-5 over two years while conceding the defensive side.

3-And-Out: Razorbacks Without Gragg, Bennett; Hoping For Rain Against Aggies?

by Chris Bahn 9/28/2012 7:08 am

Arkansas will face Texas A&M without tight end Chris Gragg and safety Eric Bennett. Gragg is still dealing with a bone bruise from last week’s game against Rutgers. Bennett is out with an undisclosed injury. They’ll be on the sideline with cornerback Tevin Mitchel, who has been out since the Sept. 8 ULM game and, according to coach John L. Smith, is “weeks” away from returning.

by Chris Bahn 9/26/2012 7:52 am

Offensive coordinator Paul Petrino didn’t dispute that the Arkansas offense has been predictable when told that’s how quarterback Tyler Wilson described it Monday. Petrino just would have preferred that assessment stay in-house.

Jim Harris: Once Razorbacks' Smith Realizes Where He Is, He Explains Team’s Plight

by Jim Harris 9/24/2012 5:00 pm

As much as John L. Smith went on Monday about how much he liked Arkansas running back Dennis Johnson, in a pre-luncheon press conference and during his address to the Little Rock Touchdown Club, we find ourselves feeling that way about the Razorback head coach these days. It’s easy to like him as a person. Feel free to scratch your head about the way he coaches or what comes out of his mouth.

3-And-Out: Wilson 'On Fire' In Return, Holmes Gets Look At Cornerback For Razorbacks

by Chris Bahn 9/19/2012 7:00 am

Tyler Wilson returned to practice after missing most of last week’s workouts and the game against Alabama because of a concussion. His practice time has been limited and at least one teammate could tell Tuesday that Wilson had been off for a few days.Tight end Chris Gragg said he asked Wilson to take a little bit off his passes. Having a rested arm led to Wilson throwing harder than Gragg expected.

Bahn: Some Optimism Remains For Razorbacks Entering Game With No. 1 Crimson Tide

by Chris Bahn 9/14/2012 2:33 pm

Hundreds of students began lining up Thursday night — even with the threat of rain hanging over Northwest Arkansas — in hope of securing a camping spot outside Razorback Stadium. Less than 24 hours before gates were set to open for Saturday’s game against No. 1 Alabama, the number of tents that lined Stadium Drive and stretched all the way down to Pomfret Hall had topped 100. Neither the forcasted storms nor the projected doom and gloom facing the Razorbacks (1-1) this week and the remainder of the season was going to keep them from getting the best seat possible.

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.

Jim Harris' SEC Notebook: Spurrier, Saban Wowed By Petrino's Offensive Legacy; Hogs Tumble In Power Poll

by Jim Harris 9/12/2012 1:24 pm

This week in the Notebook, we look at Steve Spurrier's and Nick Saban's admiration for the Bobby Petrino system, the winning performance of Tyler Russell in Mississippi State's big win over Auburn, other top efforts last week, and the ups and downs of the league teams in the Weekly Power Poll. Also, while Arkansas-Alabama is the CBS game of the week, Saturday's marquee game is a more familiar SEC clash that finally has some national importance again.

VIDEO: 3-And-Out: Razorbacks Put Emphasis On Ball Security, John L. Smith Prank Call

by Chris Bahn 9/3/2012 3:26 pm

If it felt like Arkansas players lost the football a lot in Saturday’s season opener, well, they did. Those three lost fumbles in the 49-24 victory were the most in four seasons. During the 2008-11 seasons the Razorbacks had multiple game with two, but you have to go back to the 2008 Cotton Bowl to find a game with worse ball security.
