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

by Chris Bahn 9/11/2012 03:00 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.

Bahn: John L. Smith's Quirks, Motivation To Win On Display In Razorback Introduction

by Chris Bahn 4/24/2012 04:36 pm

John L. Smith's introductory press conference at Arkansas was all the YouTube clips you might have seen of Smith's 19 years as a head coach playing out in real time. Smith didn't slap himself this time. But he did deliver a death blow to the idea of a head coach that we've come to expect here the last four years.

Former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino and Jessica Dorrell exchanged thousands of phone calls, text and multimedia messages between September and April 5, including on game days during the 2011 football season.

Regardless of how much pain he was in following the wreck — State Police Captain Lance King says Petrino did nothing but groan on the way to the hospital (well, groan and provide detailed directions on how to get to the little known Physician's Specialty Hospital)— it's really hard to muster much sympathy anymore for Petrino. But there are folks that deserve your empathy. None of them are wearing neck braces. All of them have been hurt in ways that aren't as visible as the road rash on Petrino's face.

Bahn: There Is More to Mike Anderson as a Coach Than His Ties to the Razorbacks' Past

Former UA assistant Mike Anderson, announced Wednesday evening as Arkansas' new head coach, was on staff during the best run in school history. Arkansas won 389 games, the 1994 national title and went to three Final Fours with him on the bench. But if the Anderson hire appeals to you only because he was at the school for 17 years, then it's time to put away the Starter jacket, Ace of Base CD and VHS tapes. You've missed out on a lot that Anderson has accomplished since leaving.
