by Chris Bahn 6/8/2012 8:00 am

Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long has hinted for months that a change could be coming to the Razorbacks' football uniform. Long’s messages on Twitter have generated some speculation among fans, and photos that appear to have been leaked from inside the Arkansas football facility have ramped the conversation up in recent weeks. Included among the photos distributed is a charcoal grey/black uniform. TJ Carpenter asked Long about the photos Thursday afternoon in an interview with Hog Sports Radio. Here’s what long had to say to Carpenter:

TJ Carpenter: Razorbacks Make Transition From Playing With Uekman To Playing For Him

by TJ Carpenter 11/21/2011 2:00 pm

The Razorbacks are now faced with a tough task: focus on football in the face of tragedy. Sports at its core is entertainment, but sports also inspires. It drives people to believe in something, to work together to attain a common goal. Arkansas players are faced with making the transition from playing with Garrett Uekman to playing for Uekman.

TJ Carpenter: Winning Arkansas Teams Always Have South Carolina's Number

by TJ Carpenter 10/31/2011 3:30 pm

Arkansas didn’t look good against Vanderbilt this past weekend. In fact, the Razorbacks haven’t looked good for four straight quarters since a game against New Mexico in Little Rock in the second week of the season. But Arkansas is 7-1 and fans shouldn’t be worried.

TJ Carpenter: Would Razorbacks Running Up The Score Against Vanderbilt Impress The BCS?

by TJ Carpenter 10/24/2011 12:14 pm

Arkansas got off to a slow start against Ole Miss, but easily could have run up the score late. They chose to instead run out the clock. While margin of victory is not an official component of the computer rankings, it sure seems like the slim victory against the Rebels led to Arkansas is getting jobbed, badly, in the current BCS standings. Arkansas went from being the highest ranked one-loss team in the country to being third in that category, dropping a spot in the BCS standings from 9th to 10th. Why?

TJ Carpenter: Arkansas-Ole Miss Rivalry Reveals Different Directions Four Years Later

by TJ Carpenter 10/17/2011 1:47 pm

In the fourth year of a coach’s tenure you can usually tell the direction he has a program headed in. Four years after Arkansas and Houston Nutt parted ways, the Razorbacks have sought to prove the world wrong for doubting their abject stance on whether or not the man could coach. Nutt has sought to prove he actually can. Four years after an ugly breakup, setting out to accomplish these things, where are they now?

TJ Carpenter: Benchmark Heading Into LSU Should Be 10 Wins For Razorbacks

by TJ Carpenter 10/10/2011 1:32 pm

It was just another day at the office for the Razorbacks as the romped past Auburn. Many people were surprised by the final margin of victory. I saw it as a great team doing what they were expected to do at the beginning of the season. But as seasons progress expectations change, and Arkansas has been a team who has been expected to do less and less as the season progressed. Injuries and disappointing results put a lot of fans in wait-and-see mode. All that changed in the fourth quarter against Texas A&M.

TJ Carpenter: Offensive Identity In Razorbacks Run Game Rests With Johnson, Green

by TJ Carpenter 10/3/2011 3:01 pm

Bobby Petrino challenged himself, his staff and his players to find an offensive identity. In the fourth quarter down eight Arkansas passed the football nine times for 96 yards and rand the football 11 times for 60 yards and a touchdown. Identity found. Every game Arkansas has been able to close out against a ranked opponent over the last three-and-a-half seasons it has done so by running the football consistently.

TJ Carpenter: Razorbacks Look Good Even When They're Bad

by TJ Carpenter 9/12/2011 11:44 am

It seemed at times Arkansas couldn’t do anything right, but that’s the point. On a night when Arkansas seemed to commit every mistake in the book, looked sluggish at times, and consistently gave up big gains through the air to New Mexico, they still absolutely destroyed their opponent. That impresses me.
