FAYETTEVILLE - The Arkansas 2016 football schedule was released Thursday and it features a batch of high-profile games at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium.
FAYETTEVILLE – Saturday was not the first Bret Bielema publicly scolded his all-conference running back. Alex Collins had drawn his coach’s spleen more than a couple times in both their nearly three years together.
FAYETTEVILLE – Dre Greenlaw was once an afterthought on the Arkansas depth chart. The Fayetteville High School product needed to put on weight. He needed to learn a new position. He needed time to mature.
FAYETTEVILLE – As much as a fan base collectively exhaled after Arkansas’ four-overtime win against Auburn on Saturday, Brandon Allen admitted he did much the same.
FAYETTEVILLE – All the mess and hot air about the early weeks of the Arkansas season and barring something spectacular, the Razorbacks will find themselves back even with a final third of the season left remaining come this time next week.
FAYETTEVILLE – “I hate Auburn.” Bret Bielema famously said those words four months ago. It immediately made the Arkansas-Auburn game the most anticipated on the Razorbacks schedule.
FAYETTEVILLE – The Razorbacks had Auburn on the ropes. Will Muschamp’s defense was on the verge of falling behind 21-0 as it approached the halftime break.
FAYETTEVILLE – Gus Malzahn offenses are best when he has a quarterback with nimble feet, one who can get around the edges of the offensive line and pick up yards in chunks. A quarterback adept at pulling off gadget plays here and there, too, has been a Malzahn staple.
FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas freshman running back Rawleigh Williams III suffered a serious neck injury in Saturday’s game against Auburn.
LITTLE ROCK — Lost in Auburn’s 75 offensive plays against Kentucky is a Sean White decision that is more of a reminder than anything else.
FAYETTEVILLE – Saturday’s forecast at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium calls for rain. It’s a coincidental joke considering the two teams playing inside that day, their preseason expectations and the spoils hinging on the outcome.
FAYETTEVILLE – When the opportunity arises, we like to take a look at the Arkansas football team’s next opponent through a closer lens.
FAYETTEVILLE – The chances Arkansas makes its way Saturday from the depths of FBS when it comes to sacking the opposing quarterback are slim. Auburn doesn’t pass enough, probably, for that to happen.
FAYETTEVILLE – Punch. Counter-punch. Dodge. Feint. Jab. Cross. Hook. Uppercut.
FAYETTEVILLE – Predictions for the Southeastern Conference basketball season were made at SEC Media Day on Wednesday in Birmingham, Alabama, and Arkansas was picked near the bottom of the league.
FAYETTEVILLE – In the last six-plus seasons of Auburn football, one particular year stands as an outlier. The 2012 team had a record of just 3-9. It came two years after the school won a national championship and one year before it returned to the title game. Peppered elsewhere are good, not great 8-5 seasons.
FAYETTEVILLE – A week removed from the scandal that wasn’t, Bret Bielema and the Arkansas football team have returned to making preparations. The midway point of the season has gone and with it the team’s bye.
FAYETTEVILLE – The Arkansas baseball finished its fall season this week with coach Dave Van Horn injecting several new players into last year’s College World Series team.
FAYETTEVILLE – The saga surrounding Arkansas, Alabama, ESPN, the SEC and hiring practices may finally be at a close.
FAYETTEVILLE – The broken arm Jared Cornelius suffered against Texas Tech in September was a gruesome injury. Just about a month later, the Arkansas wide receiver is nearing a return to the field.
