Bahn: Razorbacks Lost Games Late, But Anderson Didn't Lose The Team

by Chris Bahn 3/9/2012 3:47 pm

We all saw the lack of victories over the final month of the season. That’s indisputable. Forever we’ll be able to pull out an Arkansas media guide and see that a team that started 16-6 ended up 18-14 with a first-round loss in the SEC Tournament. You saw it. I saw it. Coach Mike Anderson saw it. What we didn’t see, though, was a team that quit on its coach. How quickly people seem to have forgotten what that actually looks like.

Saturday Roulette: Rivalry Week; Razorbacks Have A Show To Do In Baton Rouge

by Doc Harper 11/23/2011 4:00 pm

It’s Thanksgiving week and it seems appropriate to give thanks for, among other more meaningful things, an extremely interesting and attractive collection of rivalry games on which we can bet our fantasy dollars. While it may be hard to focus on anything other than the excitement in Baton Rouge, there are several games elsewhere that don’t impact the Razorbacks, but should still be fun to watch. Welcome to a special pre-Friday edition of Saturday Roulette.

Saturday Roulette: Chicken On A Stick, Freeze, Razorbacks Improve Bad Weekend Of Games

by Doc Harper 11/18/2011 9:00 am

There’s no way around it. There just isn’t a great slate of games this weekend, particularly in the SEC.

Thankfully, Saturday Roulette is here to help! Oh, you thought we meant fantasy betting? No, no. Gather ‘round. It’s time to tell you all a story.

Saturday Roulette: Volunteers, Tigers Can't Repeat Last Year's Ending, Can They?

by Doc Harper 10/14/2011 9:00 am

If you were thinking I’d take this week off simply because the Razorbacks are off, oh were you mistaken. All a bye week means is that you can watch football all day, stress-free. You can keep your robe on, leave your cooler by the recliner, play the first half of “Freebird,” the second half of “Layla,” and when it gets late, just the horn line in “Careless Whisper” because that’s a song only for sundown. Perhaps you’re the Jimmy Buffett type, watching games from an outdoor beachside bar somewhere in the Redneck Riviera (so jealous of you). Either way, just relax and spend the day scouting future opponents in case a coach asks for help or because you’re in the business of picking games.

Saturday Roulette: Introducing The Rigged Slots Award; By The Way, It's Bama Week

by Doc Harper 9/23/2011 12:00 pm

If the first week of Saturday Roulette was the type that would make you think about quitting your job and betting on games for a living, the second week was the kind that makes The Wife tell you, “Clock in at work early on Monday.” Saturday Roulette humbly went 3-5 last week on the type of Saturday that felt cursed.
