by Doc Harper 10/15/2012 9:00 am

These last two Arkansas games were definitely an improvement over the games in September.

Doc Harper: Seattle To OKC Move Reminds College Fans To Appreciate Rooted Programs

by Doc Harper 6/13/2012 1:00 pm

Imagine if instead of sending a DVD to Razorback donors pleading for them to Answer the Call to improve Arkansas’ athletic facilities, Jeff Long had gone to not just the donors and other Razorback fans, but all the taxpayers of Arkansas and told them “Raise taxes for new facilities or I’m moving the Hogs to Albuquerque.” And then imagine SEC Commissioner Mike Slive saying something along the lines of “The facilities in Fayetteville are no longer viable. In order for Arkansas to continue SEC play, the facilities must be upgraded." Of course this is all absurd. The Razorbacks are sometimes referred to as Arkansas’ pro team, but they’re absolutely not.

Midseason Lull Fuels Arkansas' Postseason Baseball Run

by The Associated Press 6/7/2012 8:32 am

Matt Reynolds was every bit as frustrated by Arkansas' midseason swoon as everyone else around the program. The Razorbacks third baseman still doesn't fully understand what happened during the 5-8 stretch that saw Arkansas fall from the No. 3 team in the country to nearly out of the rankings altogether. What Reynolds does know is the Razorbacks (42-19) came out of the struggles closer than ever, and he believes it's that unity that led to a sweep of the Houston Regional last weekend. The 2nd-round draft choice of the New York Mets also believes that bond is what will carry Arkansas this weekend when it travels to Waco, Texas, to face Baylor in a super regional.
