SEC Notebook/Power Poll: Alabama-LSU Showdown Highlights Weekend; East Is A Jumble

by Jim Harris 10/31/2012 3:24 pm

Last year, it appeared the whole world was watching (except for the fans focused on Arkansas and South Carolina) when No. 2 Alabama played host to No. 1 LSU in Tuscaloosa in week 10 of the Southeastern Conference season. Neither team managed a touchdown, but LSU managed to escape with a 9-6 overtime victor, only to lose the 1 vs. 2 rematch in the BCS Championship Game 21-0 in January in New Orleans. Though 'Bama is No. 1 and LSU is in the top 5, this Saturday night's matchup in Baton Rouge doesn't seem to be generating the incredible buzz of the last regular-season game — to be sure, even Ali-Frazier III didn't have the same impact worldwide that Ali-Frazier I did 40-something years ago — it's still THE game of the day in college football. So important is it to CBS this time that the network made sure no other SEC game would be played at night. Instead fans have the unusual scheduling of six SEC games kicking off before noon.

SEC Notebook/Power Poll: Hogs, Ole Miss Eye Bowl Eligibility; Mississippi State Tries To Join Elite

by Jim Harris 10/24/2012 2:06 pm

Divisional leaders clash in the Southeastern Conference's top games this weekend, while Arkansas and Ole Miss both seek to draw closer to bowl eligibility with their brunch-time matchup in Little Rock. Each team's coach said Wednesday during the SEC teleconference that he was trying to get a handle on how the open weekend might affect this week's performance. Arkansas Coach John L. Smith said the time off helped his 3-4 team heal "the bumps and bruises" and that Tuesday's practice was very good. Ole Miss' Hugh Freeze also said his team enjoyed the week to get over injuries but that the first practice back, on Tuesday, was sluggish.

Arkansas Will Invest In 'High-Level Coach.' What Would It Take To Reach A Top 10 Salary?

by Chris Bahn 10/23/2012 9:00 am

Arkansas has money to spend for a quality head coach. Jeff Long said as much during a recent chat with fans at the Little Rock Touchdown Club. How much money would the program need to invest to get its newest coach among the Top 10 highest paid? Let’s look below:

SEC Notebook/Power Poll: Arkansas, Kentucky Feeling Injury Crunch; Gamecocks Make Big Move

by Jim Harris 10/10/2012 1:32 pm

The hits just keep on coming for Arkansas' defense, and Kentucky's not feeling too well either. On Wednesday's SEC coaches teleconference, Arkansas Coach John L. Smith revealed that end Tenarius Wright had chosen to get his shoulder "fixed" now after an MRI on Monday revealed damage requiring surgery. So Wright, who redshirted as a freshman and is a fifth-year senior, is done as a Razorback. Meanwhile, Kentucky is down to a fourth-string freshman quarterback and may be missing three quarters of its starting secondary.

Saturday Roulette: It’s Okay To Be More Interested In Other Games This Week, Razorback Fans

by Doc Harper 10/5/2012 9:30 am

Remember the scene in The Godfather when Michael tells Vito, “We’ll get there, Pop. We’ll get there.” Only they never really get there because [SPOILER ALERT] Vito dies right after that and Michael only sinks deeper into the Mafia culture. Razorback football reminds me of that scene. Unless “getting there” refers to basketball season, in which case, count us in.

SEC Notebook: Struggling Frazier Not Running As Much For Auburn; Alabama, Georgia Top Power Poll

by Jim Harris 10/3/2012 1:00 pm

Moving from a special-situation quarterback in Gus Malzahn's offense as a freshman to the starting quarterback in new Auburn coordinator Scot Loeffler's attack has proven to be a difficult transition for Shiloh Christian product Kiehl Frazier. As a freshman, Frazier backed up Barrett Trotter and Clint Moseley, who were given more leeway in the passing game while Frazier was better suited for the zone-read running plays. He played in all 13 Tiger games, including a Chick-fil-A bowl victory over Virginia, and accumulated 343 rushing yards on 76 attempts (4.3 per carry). He lost only 16 yards all season. In 2012, Frazier has just 16 net yards rushing on 31 attempts.

Aggies' Manziel Sixth SEC Offensive Award Winner Since 2008 At Razorbacks' Expense

by Chris Bahn 10/1/2012 10:27 am

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, come on down … You’re the latest weekly award winner at the expense of Arkansas’ defense. Manziel is the third quarterback to be named his conference's offensive player of the week after facing the Razorbacks. Manziel, who set an SEC record with 527 yards of total offense, joins Louisiana-Monroe quarterback Kolton Browning and Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova as players named as their league’s top performers for the week. Browning was also named the national offensive player of the week after leading the Warhawks to a victory against Arkansas.

Saturday Roulette: How Much Can Texas A&M Score On A Dumpster Fire ... Er ... Arkansas?

by Doc Harper 9/28/2012 8:30 am

Did you know the term “dumpster fire” can become a cliché? It’s true. If you’ve seen almost any article written about the Razorbacks over the last few weeks, there’s a 100 percent chance you’ve seen the term as a description of the Arkansas football program. It’s to the point that some writers have begun to apologize to “burned out dumpsters.” After all, it’s not like other things can’t catch fire and would also be accurate metaphors for the Razorbacks. How’s about a junkyard fire? Or a port-o-potty fire? However, when the dumpster fire is shown in graphic, photoshop form, it is quite hilarious. Fortunately, there are other programs we can focus on, and bet our fantasy dollars on.

SEC Notebook: A&M Quarterback Manziel 'Jumps Out' At Hog Coach; Little Shuffling In Power Poll

by Jim Harris 9/26/2012 1:57 pm

Arkansas Coach John L. Smith said Wednesday during the SEC coaches teleconference that while Texas A&M looks formidable in the offensive and defensive lines and possess a great punt returner, "what jumps out" in watching A&M game film is quarterback Johnny Manziel. A&M Coach Kevin Sumlin said that Manziel only has a portion of the offensive package as they ease the redshirt freshman along.

Pressbox Roundtable: Is Arkansas' Offense To Blame? Will Red Wolves Compete In Sun Belt? Head Coach Possibilities And More With College Football Talk's Ben Kercheval

It's already week 5 for the Pressbox Roundtable, and this week we welcome Ben Kercheval of NBC College Football Talk as our national guest to the sit-around sports chat of usual suspects: KTHV, Channel 11, sports anchor Mark Edwards, ArkansasExpats.com editor and regular ArkansasSports360.com contributor Doc Harper, and KABZ-FM 103.7 The Buzz' Justin Acri. Readers, join the panel. Let us know what you think in the comments section at the bottom of the feature.

Saturday Roulette: So You're Telling Arkansas There's A Chance? Vegas Adjusts BCS Odds

by Doc Harper 9/21/2012 9:00 am

Good news, fantasy, and not-so-fantasy gamblers! You can still bet on Arkansas to win the national title this season and you get 500/1 odds! [cue the Dumb and Dumber fans] That’s the very definition of low-risk/high-reward. Lay down $10, and with a historical number of upsets, you could win $5,000. If Arkansas loses a few more games, we might get to that magical 10,000/1 odds line. As the character Kevin from The Office once memorably stated, “When you get 10,000/1 odds on anything, you take it.” (By the way, this is not our advice and we don’t recommend it. Kevin’s character is quite dumb. But it is fun to say.)

SEC Notebook: Razorbacks Bottom Out In Power Poll; 'Fingers Crossed' For Tyler Wilson

by Jim Harris 9/19/2012 1:39 pm

This week in the Notebook, we look at Florida's turnaround under Will Muschamp, as the Gators have a leg up on the rest of the SEC East with two road victories. Also, Coach John L. Smith addressed some of the Razorbacks' struggles and changes this week. We look at some of the top performances from last Saturday and revise the power poll, sending Arkansas plummeting after the embarrassing loss at home to Alabama. (Truthfully, we could probably have a "With Tyler Wilson Poll" and a "Without Tyler Wilson Poll"; the Hogs need the senior quarterback this week against Rutgers, as Smith told the league's media on Wednesday.)

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.

Jim Harris' SEC Notebook: Disappointment For Razorback Nation As Aggies Land 'GameDay'

by Jim Harris 9/5/2012 2:10 pm

Arkansas fans keep hoping ESPN will bring "College GameDay" back to Fayetteville, such as for the Sept. 15 game with Alabama. The Saturday "GameDay" has made just one trip to Fayetteville, and that was for the 2006 game with Tennessee. It probably won't make Razorback fans happy to know that Texas A&M, which joined the SEC this season, will have "GameDay" at College Station for its first conference game. "GameDay" will originate from the A&M campus Saturday when the Aggies play Florida. ESPN is broadcasting the game as well, starting at 2:30 p.m. Also in this week's notebook, we look at some fabulous performances over last weekend and offer Week 2 of our SEC Power Poll.

by Chris Bahn 8/21/2012 1:00 pm

This football season marks the 21st for the Razorbacks as members of the SEC. Having completed two decades in the league it seemed worth reflecting on how far the program has come. Which victories over the last 20 years were the sweetest? Were there losses that hurt more than others? What coaching decisions still have folks scratching their heads? ArkansasSports360.com assembled a panel aimed at answering these questions. We have our list and we'd love to hear yours. No. 9 on our moments you would love to forget: Razorbacks Make Three SEC Title Games, Can’t Win.

'Frosted Razorback Red' Pop Tarts Soon Available From Kellogg's

by Chris Bahn 8/20/2012 11:59 pm

Arkansas is one of five colleges that will soon have its own brand of Pop Tart. ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell originally reported the deal between Kellogg's and the Razorbacks, North Carolina Tar Heels, Florida Gators, Michigan Wolverines and Georgia Bulldogs. Pop Tarts will offer "Frosted Razorback Red" as its Arkansas-themed item.

Jim Harris: LSU Will Survive Without 'Honey Badger' Tyrann Mathieu

by Jim Harris 8/10/2012 3:05 pm

As we learned throughout an amazing run for Tyrann Mathieu during his sophomore season as an LSU defensive back and punt returner, the "Honey Badger don't care," and this honey badger didn't care about team or school rules, so Mathieu is no longer part of the Tigers as of today. Not 30 seconds after the news broke at lunchtime Friday, Twitter was abuzz with national college football writers "rethinking" their choice of LSU as SEC and possibly national champion.

Razorbacks Enter USA Today Coaches Poll Ranked No. 10, Trail Alabama And LSU

by Chris Bahn 8/2/2012 1:34 pm

Arkansas finds itself in a familiar position with the release of the first USA Today Coaches poll of 2012. Voters placed the Razorbacks in the Top 10, a spot they’ve finished the last two seasons. Also similar to previous years is that the team is ranked behind both LSU and Alabama, foes from the SEC West.
