by Chris Bahn 7/24/2012 10:24 am

Arkansas running back Knile Davis and quarterback Tyler Wilson are making the trip to the headquarters of Sports Illustrated, CBS Sports and ESPN as part of an awards campaign conducted by Arkansas. It’s an exciting opportunity, but one that does not seem to have distracted Wilson from the real task at hand. Football games aren't won in a TV studio, ya know.

That's why the LPGA's Northwest Arkansas Classic (presented by Wal-Mart) has the best field that could be assembled in all of golf. If they wanted to call it an LPGA major, they could — it has that great an assemblage of talent, starting with the one-two punch of Yani Tseng and our own Stacy Lewis.

Jim Harris: Five Great Razorback Bowl Games Worth Recalling

by Jim Harris 1/4/2012 3:16 pm

With just 12 wins among its 38 bowl games all-time, the Arkansas Razorback program’s best post-season performances aren’t too hard to assess. As the Jan. 6 AT&T Cotton Bowl approaches, with its No. 6 vs. No. 8 matchup of Arkansas and Kansas State, let’s look back at the bowl games that mattered to the Hog program, both in their immediacy of the UA victory and what the win did for the program long-term.

Sports Illustrated Looks At Kevin Kelley, Last Week's Pulaski Academy-Cabot Game

by Chris Bahn 9/16/2011 2:16 pm

Kevin Kelley’s unconventional approach to football is well known to folks inside the state of Arkansas. Cabot, for example, can attest all too well that the Pulaski Academy head coach is willing to try some unusual things. Consider last week’s game in which Kelley had his team attempt four, and recover three onside kicks in jumping out to a 29-0 lead with just 8:35 remaining in the first quarter. It was odd enough that Pulaski Academy has received another round of national publicity.

[Update] Long, Arkansas Respond To Sports Illustrated/CBS Arrest Rankings Story

by Chris Bahn 3/2/2011 5:40 pm

Typically, ranking No. 2 on a Sports Illustrated poll involving college football would be nice achievement for a program. But Arkansas and Coach Bobby Petrino could probably do without seeing their name on SI’s most recent “Top 25.” CBS News and SI worked together on a piece centered on Top 25 football programs giving out scholarships/keeping players with arrests in their backgrounds. Pittsburgh (with 22 players arrested) was the only school listed higher than Arkansas (18 players) on the list. Iowa and the Razorbacks tied for No. 2. But what does this mean?

What They're Saying: Reaction to Bobby Petrino's New Deal With Arkansas

by 12/15/2010 1:03 pm

Bobby Petrino took a beating nationally when he chose to take over at Arkansas three years ago. His departure from the Atlanta Falcons conjured up all sorts of columns and commentary, little of it flattering. Few expected the Razorbacks-Petrino marriage to last long. What’s the reaction now that Petrino appears to be committed to Fayetteville for at least seven more seasons?

Moncrief SI Cover Not Just Big In Arkansas

by Chris Bahn 12/13/2010 1:00 pm

Arkansas fans have likely counted the Feb. 13, 1978, cover of Sports Illustrated among their favorite all-time. It featured legendary Razorback Sidney Moncrief soaring toward the goal while a helpless Texas player and thousands of Hog callers looked on in awe. That cover isn’t just a favorite of Arkansans, though. SI writer Joe Posnanski includes it at No. 5 on his list of the magazine’s 32 best covers.
