Live Game Blog: Arkansas vs. Jacksonville State, Sept. 1

by Jim Harris 9/1/2012 5:52 pm

Welcome back, Hog fans and other followers. Be a part of the blog and feel free to comment in the accompanying comment section, or send me an email at jharris@abpg.com (I periodically will check the mail during the game). The game is significant not only as the Razorbacks' season opener, but it also marks the return to Fayetteville of former head football coach Jack Crowe, who lost his job following a stunning 10-3 upset at the hands of The Citadel on Sept. 5, 1992, nearly 20 years ago. Crowe left coaching for a while, only to return 13 years ago to lead Jacksonville State, where he's had the Gamecocks contending regularly for Ohio Valley Conference championships (they've won three under Crowe's guidance).

Jim Harris: Arkansas Razorbacks Shouldn't Have To Be Selling Any Seats This Late

by Jim Harris 8/8/2012 2:56 pm

The good news for Arkansas Razorback fans is that they've bought every seat available for the Alabama and LSU games in Fayetteville this upcoming football season. Arkansas fans recognize college football powerhouses and will turn out en masse to see their Hogs play them. And that's about it. Out of eight games being played in state, the Hogs are batting .250 right now in sellouts. For Fayetteviille and the 72,000-seat Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, it's a better-sounding .333 average — Baseball Hall of Fame material, but pretty lackluster in Southeastern Conference football attendance figures.

Discover Arkansas: Find Yourself at Home in The Natural State

by Living in Arkansas Staff 7/23/2012 12:00 am

There is a place for everyone in Arkansas, a 176-year-old state with a history and culture as colorful and diverse as its physical landscape. The deep woods of the Ozark Mountains, the wide-open farmlands of the Delta, the slow pace of small-town life or the conveniences and attractions of the big city — Arkansas has it all, including an endless supply of great food, good music, festivals, fishing, hunting, hiking and other recreational activities.

Jim Harris: Razorbacks Respond In Big Way To Record Crowd For Spring Game

by Jim Harris 4/21/2012 6:15 pm

Arkansas sophomore cornerback Tevin Mitchel, who wasn’t on campus for last year’s Razorback spring game, wasn’t sure how many fans to expect for Saturday’s Red-White clash, but he was hopeful for 20,000, he said late Saturday afternoon. UA senior quarterback Tyler Wilson said he almost felt choked up when he took the field and saw a record spring crowd in the Reynolds Razorback Stadium stands. In maybe the most tumultuous time in Hog football history — with Bobby Petrino suddenly no longer guiding the program and who-knows-who taking over — a crowd of 45,250 fans watched Wilson, Mitchel and the first-team Razorbacks put on a dominating offensive and defensive performance, annihilating the backups 65-0.

Jim Harris: Razorbacks Jarius Wright, Joe Adams Paid Early Price, Now Exit on Big Roll

by Jim Harris 11/9/2011 2:30 pm

On Saturday, Arkansas Razorback fans will honor seniors such as record-setters Jarius Wright and Joe Adams for accomplishments that nobody likely saw coming during the fall of 2008. But, it was those early beatdowns suffered as freshmen, and never losing their moxie that season, that propelled Wright, Adams and the Razorbacks to a spectacular run over the past two seasons.

Jim Harris: Defensive Seniors Step Up Big For Razorbacks In Shutting Down Dyer, Tigers

by Jim Harris 10/9/2011 9:33 am

Bahn: The Wright Way – Razorback Receiver Displays Leadership Potential

by Chris Bahn 4/16/2011 8:50 pm

Jarius Wright hauled in a pass, broke a tackle and headed for the end zone. He was credited with a 57-yard reception and at least 50 of it came after the catch when the safety couldn’t get him wrapped up and to the ground. In a spring that has included repeated pleas from coaches for leadership, this was as good an example as any of a player delivering. Wright heard Coach Bobby Petrino in his pregame speech challenge what might be the nation’s best receiving corps for more yards after the catch.

Tyler Wilson led his White team to a convincing 45-14 victory over the Red in Arkansas' spring game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound junior from Greenwood completed 12-of-25 passes and threw for 242 yards and three touchdowns.

Harris: Arkansas AD Long Should Bless His Lucky Stars for Van Horn

by Jim Harris 2/23/2011 2:19 pm

Jeff Long arrived at Fayetteville in fall 2007 to begin the transition to taking over the athletic director's role. He had unforeseen problems coming in the men's basketball program, the football program was certain to have changeover, and the NCAA chammpionship winning track and field program was also about to embark on change with John McDonnell's impending retirement. Only with the baseball program did Arkansas appear to have everything in place for years to come, thanks to Frank Broyles' brilliant move to bring Dave Van Horn back from Nebraska, where he had made the Cornhuskers into winners.

Bahn: Final Fayetteville Game Not The Sendoff Mallett, Seniors Deserved

by Chris Bahn 11/15/2010 6:08 am

Arkansas announced the crowd at 67,330, less than its opener against Tennessee Tech (69,596). And even if the number Saturday was 100 percent accurate, it was a decline from Vanderbilt (70,430), which was a decline from Ole Miss (73,619). That means as the Razorbacks’ BCS ranking has increased down the stretch, the crowds have decreased.
