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).

3-And-Out: Petrino Brothers Talk, Allen Prepping To Start For Razorbacks

by Chris Bahn 9/12/2012 8:13 am

Brandon Allen would like to approach this like any other week. He’s preparing at quarterback, going through his usual routine. Only this week is far from the norm.

2-Minute Drill: ULM 34, Arkansas 31 (OT)

by Chris Bahn 9/9/2012 12:45 am

Why Arkansas Lost: Take your pick of places to point the finger of blame. Defensive breakdowns. Poor play calling. Injuries to key players, including quarterback Tyler Wilson. Ultimately it boiled down to the No. 8 Razorbacks not being able to stop the Warhawks, who outgained Arkansas 550-377. Arkansas blew a 28-7 lead in suffering arguably the worst loss in program history. ULM converted six of seven fourth downs, including on the game-winning, 16-yard run by quarterback Kolton Browning in overtime.

Bahn: Razorbacks Fun To Talk About, But Hard For Some To See As Serious Threat So Far

by Chris Bahn 9/7/2012 2:00 pm

Nobody really seems to know what to make of the eighth-ranked Razorbacks as they enter Saturday’s game with Louisiana-Monroe. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. and all anybody really knows is that Arkansas is full of interesting storylines. For now, this program is more sideshow than main event.

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.

Razorback Report Card: Arkansas 49, Jacksonville State 24

by Jim Harris 9/2/2012 3:54 pm

Arkansas was inconsistent in its season-opening win over a Football Championship Subdivision program at Reynolds Razorback Stadium, and our grades reflect it. Lots of work awaits these Razorbacks before powerful Alabama comes to town Sept. 15.

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).

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.

by Chris Bahn 8/29/2012 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.

ArkansasSports360.com assembled a panel aimed at answering these questions. We have our list and we'd love to hear yours. No. 3 on our moments we'd love to forget: Alabama 24, Arkansas 20 ...

3-And-Out: Paul Petrino Will Call Game From Field; Crowe, Gamecocks Embrace 'Challenge'

by Chris Bahn 8/29/2012 5:00 am

Paul Petrino has generally done his play-calling work from the press box. It provides a better view of the defense and can help make in-game adjustments more efficient. Petrino will take a different approach — at least to start the season — with Arkansas. He’ll be calling plays from the sidelines, something he says will help keep communication strong with quarterback Tyler Wilson.

Tweets Indicate First Live Tackling For Razorbacks' Knile Davis A Success

by Chris Bahn 8/26/2012 3:56 pm

Knile Davis’ first live tackling in more than a year was apparently a success. Coaches gave the Arkansas running back his first full contact since last August when an ankle injury on an inside run ended his season. Only coaches and select boosters were allowed inside the scrimmage, but favorable reports emerged on Twitter.

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.

by Chris Bahn 8/20/2012 9:42 am
