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:

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.

Would The Razorbacks Participate In Penn State Roster Raid? Could They? Should They?

by Chris Bahn 7/23/2012 1:47 pm

Few Penn State players are from within SEC recruiting territory. More to the point: few Penn State players would seem to be of interest to Arkansas and Arkansas would seem to have little interest or connection to any players at Penn State. However, we probably shouldn’t totally dismiss the idea that a roster refugee or two could consider the Razorbacks. Currently there are three coaches on the Hogs' staff who actively recruited the Big Ten in recent years.

Arkansas Spring Football Game: Questions For The Razorbacks To Answer

by Chris Bahn 4/21/2012 8:14 am

Much of the Arkansas football news entering today's Red White game has centered on off-the-field matters. But football will have our attention today at Razorback Stadium as the Razorbacks kickoff the Red-White game at 2 p.m. Below are six questions we’re asking entering the final practice of spring:

Bahn: Taver Johnson's Familiarity With Haynes, Petrino Success Big Selling Points

by Chris Bahn 1/17/2012 4:00 pm

Taver Johnson was willing to overlook the fact he’d never been to the Ozarks — never even been to Arkansas — and join the Arkansas staff as assistant head coach and linebackers coach. Johnson had the choice to remain on staff at Ohio State under Urban Meyer, but saw the opening at Arkansas as an opportunity he needed to take.

Taver Johnson Joins Razorback Staff As Assistant Head Coach, Linebackers Coach

by Chris Bahn 1/15/2012 6:20 pm

Arkansas has added another Ohio State defensive coach to its staff. Buckeyes cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson is joining the Razorbacks as linebackers coach and assistant head coach, just weeks after Paul Haynes joined the staff as defensive coordinator. Johnson and Haynes worked together coaching the Ohio State secondary.

Buckeyes Banned From Bowl Following 2012 Season As Punishment For 2010 Infractions

by The Associated Press 12/20/2011 9:44 pm

Ohio State players broke the rules and got to play in the Sugar Bowl anyway. Jim Tressel knew about infractions and let it all happen. Now the Buckeyes and new coach Urban Meyer will pay for it next season.

Bahn: Haynes' Reputation As 'Grinder,' Talent Developer Fit Petrino's Razorback Staff

by Chris Bahn 12/13/2011 2:02 pm

Shortly after arriving in Fayetteville on Sunday, new Arkansas defensive coordinator Paul Haynes began familiarizing himself with the unit he would be taking over. Haynes watched film until about 1 a.m. with a graduate assistant, taking notes on plays and personnel. That willingness to jump right into the task at hand is a pretty telling glimpse of what attracted Bobby Petrino to Haynes, a six-year assistant at Ohio State. Petrino calls it “grinding.”

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.

Are the Hogs' talented D-linemen and receivers really as deep as advertised? Can Dennis Johnson pick up where he left off? Will ASU cover in Blacksburg?

Jim Harris: How Sweet It's Still Not for Razorbacks with Buckeyes' Newest Blemish

by Jim Harris 7/8/2011 3:24 pm

After waiting months past time it should have done something, Ohio State now is trying to get ahead of the NCAA by penalizing its football program, including vacating all its 2010 season wins and the Sugar Bowl victory over Arkansas. Some difference that really makes to the Razorbacks; it's still a 31-25 loss on the books but maybe it can serve this year's team as further motivation to top last year's 10-win season.

Bahn: Vacating Wins No Real Punishment, How About Coaches And ADs Vacate Their Salaries?

by Chris Bahn 7/8/2011 3:15 pm

While Ohio State announced Friday a variety of self-imposed sanctions that included vacating its Sugar Bowl victory against Arkansas, that doesn’t mean things change for the Razorbacks. Technically, they still lost the game despite the Buckeyes trying to avoid stiff NCAA penalties by vacating the win. Now we get to see if the NCAA handles this Ohio State mess any better than it did before the Sugar Bowl.

Harris: NCAA Can't Catch the Rule-Skirters, But Will Hammer the Liars

by Jim Harris 6/1/2011 3:07 pm

In the end, it won't be any shady recruiting that led to Bruce Pearl's firing at Tennessee; it will be his lying to investigators. It won't be the trading of memorabilia for tattoos or the car deals for Terelle Pryor that has cost Jim Tressel his job as football coach at Ohio State, but rather the lying about how much he knew and when he knew it. These guys grew up in the Watergate era but didn't take much from the biggest presidential scandal of our time. It's not the act, it's the lying.

What Are the Arkansas Razorbacks' Peers Spending In the 'Marketplace' For A Coach?

What can Arkansas do for the future to pull in some of that money left on the table? Spending money on a coach is a start. Here’s more from the Arkansas Business analysis:

Harris: Arkansas Had Ridiculous Number of Chances to Beat Ohio State, But Didn't

by Jim Harris 1/5/2011 2:38 am

For a longtime follower of Arkansas Razorback football, this almost hurts too much to write. But Ohio State did everything it could to hand the 77th Allstate Sugar Bowl to Arkansas, and the Hogs -- from a freshman not scooping up a blocked punt and scoring to NFL hopeful quarterback Ryan Mallett not deliving in the clutch -- refused to take it.

AP: Ohio State Holds Off Arkansas to Win Sugar Bowl, 31-26

by The Associated Press 1/5/2011 12:04 am

Ohio State might want to send a thank-you note to the NCAA for helping to end its bowl misery against the SEC. Terrelle Pryor threw two touchdown passes, helping the No. 6 Buckeyes build a big lead, and Solomon Thomas made an interception with 58 seconds remaining that sealed a 31-26 victory over eighth-ranked Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday night.

Harris: From Holtz and Bear to Petrino and Tressel

by Jim Harris 1/4/2011 11:50 am

With a decided manpower advantage, Arkansas' fans won the party in the French Quarter on Monday. But don't think Ohio State's supporters didn't compete as hard as they could. Now comes the reason everyone is down here in the Crescent City, and Arkansas can secure a win on the football field if it doesn't give the ball away.
