FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas golf coach Brad McMakin and the rest of his team haven’t been shy about sharing their feelings as they prepare to host the NCAA’s Fayetteville Regional at The Blessings beginning today.
The Razorbacks are confident. Actually, they’re oozing with it. They’ll be shocked if anyone else navigates their unforgiving home course better over 54 holes this week.
FAYETTEVILLE — Outfielder Matt Vinson won’t forget the conversation he had with Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn a year ago. It was critical to his recent success.
Starting center fielder Jacob Morris had broken his thumb trying to lay down a bunt in the team’s final home game against Auburn. He was going to be out for the rest of the year. So Van Horn turned to Vinson to let the junior know the Razorbacks were counting on him to become an everyday player as they moved into postseason play.
FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas first baseman Dominic Ficociello said the juniors on the Razorbacks’ roster have accomplished plenty in their college careers.
They’ve played in NCAA regionals and super regionals. They’ve collected key NCAA Tournament victories. They’ve been to Omaha for the College World Series.
