by Chris Bahn 4/29/2013 9:41 am

While contract details haven’t yet been finalized for seven players with Arkansas ties who were drafted over the weekend, we do have an idea of what they could earn, based on 2012 contracts.

Tyler Wilson, Other Arkansas NFL Prospects Seek Return on Training

With millions of dollars at stake, players like Tyler Wilson must maximize the months leading up to the NFL Draft.

Jim’s Notebook: Cleaning Up With Some Last Tidbits, On Mustain, Hog Basketball, Football

by Jim Harris 11/2/2012 1:14 pm

National recruiting guru Tom Lemming said this week that former Arkansas quarterback Mitch Mustain's transfer to Southern Cal was the "biggest mistake of his life." Meanwhile, basketball fans in Central Arkansas got some good news with an early schedule of speakers at the Tip Off Club. And if Arkansas is to conquer any of its remaining four football foes, the Hogs need to find more wide receiving weapons.

Doc Harper: Regardless Where They Play, These Razorbacks Just Aren’t Very Good

by Doc Harper 10/29/2012 8:46 am

It never fails. Whenever anything goes wrong for the Razorbacks in Little Rock, the anti-War Memorial Stadium crowd comes out in full force as it did Saturday afternoon after Arkansas lost to Ole Miss in the old stadium on Markham Street.

Report Card: Ole Miss 30, Arkansas 27

by Chris Bahn 10/28/2012 2:00 pm

WHAT WE LEARNED: So it was Kentucky and Auburn after all. Arkansas had put together a pair of impressive victories and seemed to have the season headed in the right direction against those teams, but it might have been the opponents more than the Razorbacks. Now the team needs three victories in its final four games — including three Top 25 opponents — to salvage bowl eligibility. Seems unlikely.

Bahn: No Redemption For Razorbacks, Just More Frustration In Little Rock Loss

by Chris Bahn 10/28/2012 7:38 am

There was no redemption in the Rock for Arkansas on Saturday. Instead, players got just another dose of disappointment. Rather than avenging an earlier loss at War Memorial Stadium, the Razorbacks were just frustrated by an Ole Miss field goal that sailed through the uprights as time expired in the Rebels' 30-27 victory.

Jim Harris: Wilson, Arkansas Leave Too Many Points On Field In Loss To Ole Miss

by Jim Harris 10/27/2012 5:59 pm

For yet another Ole Miss game at War Memorial Stadium, Arkansas was left mulling the “ifs.” It wasn’t as heartbreaking as the famed 1960 game decided on an official’s questionable call on a field goal. And it wasn’t as bad as the 1990 game here, where the Hogs outgained the Rebels 3 to 1 and still lost 21-17, denied at the goal line on the game’s final play. But it was close. This one also came down to the game’s final play, a 31-yard Bryson Rose field goal for a 30-27 Ole Miss win. The Razorbacks were left lamenting how many scoring opportunities were wasted by poor execution.

2-Minute Drill: Ole Miss 30, Arkansas 27

by Chris Bahn 10/27/2012 5:31 pm

Why Arkansas Lost: Mistakes doomed the Razorbacks, who put up big numbers on offense and made some critical stops on defense, but couldn’t seem to get out of their own way. Arkansas had a punt blocked which led to a touchdown and Tyler Wilson was intercepted twice, one of which led to an Ole Miss score. Arkansas held the Rebels to field goals on three drives, but couldn’t come up with stops when needed. Ole Miss ran its two-minute offense to perfection in the final 2:09, hitting a field goal as time expired to win the game and mark the first time since 1997 the Razorbacks lost two games in War Memorial Stadium.

Jim Harris: Arkansas-Ole Miss Matters More Than Anyone Would Have Thought In August

by Jim Harris 10/26/2012 12:30 pm

This season's key point for Arkansas has become Saturday's game in Little Rock with surprising, 4-3 Ole Miss. Arkansas, expected in the preseason to be a factor in the national championship picture, can get back to .500 (4-4) with a victory at War Memorial Stadium. Ole Miss can make its bowl hopes a lot more realistic with a win. Surely no one saw this Oct. 27 game as being meaningful when preseason practices began. The shape in which first-year coach Hugh Freeze found the Rebels had most observers wondering if they could handle Football Championship Subdivision opponent Central Arkansas in the opener. Houston Nutt's tenure ended with the Rebels on a 14-game SEC losing streak, and expectations for Ole Miss when the media, coaches and players convened at media days in July in Hoover, Ala., were that the skid would continue well into 2012.

3-And-Out: Gragg Ready To Play For Razorbacks, Talk With Mom Inspires Johnson

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

Arkansas looked strong on offense in beating Kentucky 49-7 two weeks ago even though the Razorbacks weren’t full strength. They’re optimistic that having tight end Chris Gragg back for Ole Miss will provide an additional threat. Gragg has been out since the first quarter of a 35-26 loss to Rutgers.

3-and-Out: Gragg Returns To Practice, Offense Protecting The Football

by Chris Bahn 10/17/2012 12:00 am

Arkansas found some points to go with its offensive yards against Kentucky. Offensive coordinator Paul Petrino points to the lack of turnovers by the Razorbacks. They didn’t have an interception or fumble for the first time this season and were able to score on six consecutive possessions to open the game and on seven of their first eight drives.

Doc Harper: Arkansas Beating Kentucky Wasn’t A Surprise, Dominating Was A Shock

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

These last two Arkansas games were definitely an improvement over the games in September. Even though Auburn and Kentucky are not good teams, those victories shouldn’t be discounted because of the level of opposition. It’s clear the Razorbacks are better than they were and fans have reason to be optimistic as the season goes on.

Report Card: Arkansas 49, Kentucky 7

by Chris Bahn 10/14/2012 5:42 pm

WHAT WE LEARNED: Arkansas seems to have leveled out a bit. Now the Razorbacks are beating inferior teams the way they’re supposed to beat them. Keep watching those holiday season travel prices for Birmingham, Shreveport or Memphis. No guarantees, but Arkansas seems to be making a strong push.

Jim Harris: Freshman Lightning Strikes Twice With Williams' Scores; Hogs Humble Kentucky

by Jim Harris 10/13/2012 11:55 pm

The first bolt of lightning — Jonathan Williams' 74-yard catch and run down the left sideline on Arkansas' first offensive snap — was the first sign that this Saturday night would belong completely to the Razorbacks. After a real bolt of lightning very close to Reynolds Razorback Stadium and a 65-minute suspension of play midway through the first quarter, the freshman Williams struck again with the same play on the opposite side. Tyler Wilson led Williams perfectly on the wheel route, and Williams sidestepped a freshman Kentucky defensive back for clear sailing down the right sideline and a 77-yard scoring play, giving Arkansas a 28-0 lead. The game was essentially over, but not before yet another lengthy delay at 9:30 p.m. with Arkansas holding a 49-7 lead.

Bahn: Razorbacks Present John L. Smith With Game Ball, Thank Him For Remaining Positive

by Chris Bahn 10/13/2012 10:54 pm

John L. Smith walked into the postgame media session with a grin on his face and a football tucked under his arm. Smith’s grin was courtesy his team’s 49-7 victory against Kentucky on Saturday at a rain-soaked Razorback Stadium. His football came courtesy of his team, who presented him with the game ball following their beat-down of the Wildcats. Their reward to the coach had a two-fold reason.

Bahn: Getting Back Into Win Column Brings Back Confidence For Razorbacks

by Chris Bahn 10/12/2012 10:00 pm

It was a start. Arkansas players realize that a win last week at Auburn doesn’t guarantee they salvage the season. They know there is a long way to go before they have officially turned things around in 2012. But ending a four-game losing streak, getting a win against a BCS opponent and knocking off a Southeastern Conference foe was encouraging.

The Showgram: Celebrating Razorback Optimism, Tyler Wilson's Zero Touchdowns

by 10/11/2012 12:34 pm

Optimism abounds in Fayetteville. Not just because it's time for The Showgram (the collaborative effort of ArkansasSports360.com editor Chris Bahn and Adam Alter, assistant sports director of KNWA/KARK Razorback Nation), but because Arkansas has ended its four-game losing streak.

3-And-Out: Wilson 'Fine' In Practice Following Accident; Razorbacks Prepare Without Gragg

by Chris Bahn 10/10/2012 6:49 am

Tyler Wilson’s ability to take a hit and keep throwing was on display again Tuesday. Hours after a mid-morning accident on Interstate 540 the Arkansas quarterback was on the field, going through practice with the Razorbacks.
