Saturday Roulette: Vegas Still Likes Razorbacks' Odds At BCS Without Petrino

by Doc Harper 4/13/2012 8:22 am

Before last week’s news broke, Arkansas’ odds of winning the national championship this year were 15-to-1, good for eighth best odds in the country. One might think that losing a coach who was an insanely good 60-38-3 against the spread in his career (29-19-3 at Arkansas) would hurt Arkansas’ chances. However, oddsmakers announced this week that Arkansas would remain at 15-to-1.

Two-Minute Drill: Arkansas State 45, Troy 14

by Jim Harris 12/3/2011 8:57 pm

While the Red Wolves’ offense took a while to get rolling, the opportunistic defense took control of the game with a 60-yard fumble return for a score by Darryl Feemster and a blocked punt recovery by Don Jones to stake ASU to a 17-0 lead. Troy never was closer than 10 points the rest of the way, as the ASU offense found a good mix of Ryan Aplin’s scrambles and his pin-point accuracy on sideline routes to gain 283 yards in the second half while the defense clamped down on Troy, allowing just 98 total yards in the second half. Aplin connected on 25 of 37 passes for 356 yards and three touchdowns. Senior receiver Dwayne Frampton had 10 catches for 153 yards and a score, breaking the ASU record for career receptions. Besides a 30-yard scoring strike to Frampton, Aplin passed for a 10-yard touchdown to Taylor Stockemer and a 9-yard shovel pass to Rod Hall.

by Chris Bahn 12/1/2011 4:00 pm

TJ Carpenter: Expect These Razorbacks To Be Wide Awake At Alabama

by TJ Carpenter 9/19/2011 11:25 am

For three weeks Arkansas has been sleepwalking through its schedule under the pretense the team is working on fundamentals. I suppose that is partially true. But in the second half against Troy, the Razorbacks finally dropped the rouse. Their boredom caught up with them. When the Razorbacks take the field against the Crimson Tide on Saturday it will have been exactly 364 days since a 24-20 loss and a late-game collapse doomed them to a less-than-perfect season. It will have been exactly one year to the day since the Razorbacks and Bobby Petrino circled this game on their calendar. Does anyone honestly want to argue the Razorbacks weren’t the least bit distracted against Troy?

Report Card: Arkansas 38, Troy 28

by Chris Bahn 9/18/2011 6:00 pm

WHAT WE LEARNED: Work remains. Not so much to hit the panic button and planning New Year’s in Dallas, but enough to have us wondering if Arkansas is ready for a huge leap in competition against No. 2 Alabama. Even if nobody expected the Razorbacks to be tested, it was probably a good thing they were before facing the Crimson Tide. As Twitter follower @jimr3105 put it: “it was like a Straight A kid getting a D. #Wakeupcall.”

Bahn: Razorbacks' Petrino Knows How To Pace An Offense (And How To Get A Laugh)

by Chris Bahn 9/16/2011 2:00 pm

Teams don't show all they've got in tune-up games. Most folks who pay attention to college football would agree that’s the case. Doesn’t mean Coach Bobby Petrino wants to talk about it. In fact, Petrino did his best to shoot that idea down — with humor! — Thursday when a local TV personality asked about further opening up the playbook in the coming weeks.

Saturday Roulette: Will Hogs Avoid Tune-Up Doldrums? Will Nutt Improve Against Vandy?

by Doc Harper 9/16/2011 10:00 am

Last week’s picks proved to be so spectacular I only regretted that I have but one fantasy bank account to bet on college football games. Last week’s picks notched a 7-0-1 record, which means we won enough that we can celebrate through the Razorbacks’ final tune-up game and recover in time for the beginning of the season next week.
