by Todd Traub 10/30/2012 9:40 am

Former Arkansas State assistant and Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin led the Steelers past the Washington Redskins in Stripe Bowl I while former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett finally got some minutes, after biding his time behind Tom Brady, as New England trounced St. Louis in London.

Pro-Arkansas: Raiders' McFadden Still On His Feet; Cowboys' Jones Shines In Loss

by Todd Traub 10/16/2012 9:02 am

Darren McFadden (Arkansas) has had to scratch out from tough yards for the Oakland Raiders this year, but so far he has avoided the injuries that have derailed past seasons. Felix Jones (Arkansas) gained over 90 yards for Dallas but couldn't help the Cowboys overcome Baltimore.

Harris: Razorbacks Won’t Necessarily Stop Anyone But Could Be More Opportunistic

by Jim Harris 9/21/2012 11:58 am

About this point in the season last year, Arkansas was way behind its opponents in takeaways. Then-head coach Bobby Petrino seemed to credit it mostly to luck — he insisted the turnovers would start balancing out the Razorbacks’ way. If we apply that logic to this Hog team under Petrino’s successor, John L. Smith, then turnovers should start coming Arkansas’ way by the bushel. In just three games, Arkansas is minus-8 in the turnover margin: six lost fumbles and four interceptions while claiming one fumble and one interception.

by Todd Traub 9/18/2012 10:48 am

He's no Tom Brady, but Mallett's no Brian Hoyer either.

Inside The 2012 ArkansasSports360.com Football Preview Magazine: Razorback Title Dreams Keep Wilson, Hamilton, Davis On Hill

by Chris Bahn 7/16/2012 10:35 am

Tyler Wilson had a quality debut season as a starter at Arkansas. It wasn't enough to satisfy him or talented teammates like Knile Davis and Cobi Hamilton, who returned for a shot at a national title despite drawing NFL interest.

VIDEO: Razorbacks' Wilson Checking Schedule For Return Trip To Manning Passing Academy

by Chris Bahn 5/6/2012 7:44 am

Tyler Wilson’s development as a quarterback has included hours of film study of how NFL greats play the position. Wilson has also found himself noting things as simple as how the pros carry themselves walking into a room. Wilson got the chance for in-person viewing last summer working as a counselor at the Manning Passing Academy. He has the opportunity to go back in July, depending on his schedule.

Bahn: Ryan Mallett Learning With Patriots, Wants 'Multiple' Super Bowls As QB Starter

by Chris Bahn 5/4/2012 12:00 pm

Former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett made his way around the lower level of Razorback Stadium posing for pictures and signing autographs for nearly 40 minutes during the Red-White game on April 21. It didn’t matter if the fan was a grown man, college girl or a child, Mallett took time for them. Mallett, the record-setting Razorback quarterback now a reserve with the New England Patriots, was particularly generous with the kids and even when he tried to break away from the crowd, he couldn’t. There was always one more person to pose with or sign for and Mallett did his best to oblige. Remembering Mallett working his way around the stadium became a great starting point for an interview we did a few weeks later.

Jim Harris: Unless Goodell Wants Touch Football Rules, Game Will Always Be Violent

by Jim Harris 5/2/2012 3:43 pm

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell received more ammunition in a sadly tragic way Wednesday in his aim to make professional football a safer sport. Coincidentally, the news that former great NFL linebacker Junior Seau may have committed suicide at his home in California, ending his life at age 43, came on the same day New Orleans Saints star linebacker Jonathan Vilma was handed a season-long suspension by the NFL for his participation in the Saints' bounties-for-hits program of recent seasons. It's important before we go any further to note the distinction of Goodell's desire for a "safer" sport, rather than a "safe" one. Football will never be safe. Heck, soccer has its share of injuries, and basketball too. There are not "safe" sports.

New England Patriots Select Former Razorback Jake Bequette With 90th Pick

Razorback Pro Day 3-And-Out: Mallett Returns To Throw, Joe Adams Can't Get 40 Time Down

by Chris Bahn 3/6/2012 6:33 pm

Running routes and catching passes during pre-draft work can be a bit of a mixed bag for receivers. Drills often require adjusting to a new quarterback and quickly trying to figure out the habits of the guy throwing the passes. Jarius Wright, Joe Adams and Greg Childs experienced that at the NFL Combine last month. There were no such problems for the trio at Arkansas Pro Day. Former Razorback Ryan Mallett, drafted in 2011 by the New England Patriots, was on hand to throw.

AP: Manning Gets MVP, Leads Giants Past Patriots In Super Bowl

by The Associated Press 2/5/2012 9:28 pm

Take that, Brady. You too, Peyton. Eli Manning is the big man in the NFL after one-upping Tom Brady and leading the New York Giants to a 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl — in older brother Peyton's house, at that. Just as Manning did four years ago when the Giants ruined New England's perfect season, he guided them 88 yards to the decisive touchdown, which the Patriots didn't contest as Ahmad Bradshaw ran 6 yards with 57 seconds left.

Homegrown Heroes: Former Springdale Bulldog Damian Williams Producing For Titans

by Chris Bahn 11/15/2011 1:46 pm

Damian Williams had no idea what coaches’ expectations were when they moved him into the Tennessee Titans’ starting lineup. Whatever the standard, Williams can’t possibly be underperforming at this point.

Jim Harris: Razorbacks Jarius Wright, Joe Adams Paid Early Price, Now Exit on Big Roll

by Jim Harris 11/9/2011 2:30 pm

On Saturday, Arkansas Razorback fans will honor seniors such as record-setters Jarius Wright and Joe Adams for accomplishments that nobody likely saw coming during the fall of 2008. But, it was those early beatdowns suffered as freshmen, and never losing their moxie that season, that propelled Wright, Adams and the Razorbacks to a spectacular run over the past two seasons.

Dolphins' Struggles Leave Some Wondering 'What If' The Team Had Drafted Ryan Mallett

by Chris Bahn 11/3/2011 6:00 am

Miami is struggling and winless through its first seven games. Some of the Dolphins troubles stem from play at the quarterback position. Quarterback play is far from the only area that is lacking, but it’s an area where the team definitely needs improvement. So that leaves folks in Miami second-guessing the Dolphins’ 2011 draft. Specifically, the part where Miami passed twice on former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett.
