Arkansas Razorbacks Internet Chatter: January 14, 2014 - Kentucky Preview, Recruiting, Track & Field

Andy Lyons

News, notes and interesting reads for Hog fans. Burger King All-Americans are people, too, Calipari.

Arkansas vs. UK – If the Florida game last Saturday was "gut check time" for Arkansas, then tonight's matchup with No. 14 Kentucky and the bajillion McDonald's All-Americans will be a test of the Razorbacks' manhood. If Arkansas cannot find a solution to Michael Qualls struggles it could be a long night. The small things will also be big against Kentucky. Those small things doomed Arkansas Saturday (free throws, turnovers, shot selection).

Note: Anderson, in his press conference Monday said this about all of Kentucky's McDonald's All-Americans: "There's some Burger King All-Americans, too, that are pretty damn good, too." It was humorous and thought I'd share.

John Calipari – Cal is up to his old tricks once again, telling his team stock full of McDonald's All-Americans that they're still not good enough. I guess that's Cal's way of getting his team fired up to play in one of the more difficult venues in college basketball. Tell them they aren't good enough, get them to play with a chip on their shoulder – it's genius.

Football Crootin' – As the February 5 National Signing Day approaches and coaches and assistants make final pushes for the best the Class of 2014 has to offer, there are some names to keep an eye on if you're a Razorback supporter. Arkansas' 2014 class is sitting at 20 commitments as of now, but signing any of these guys could help round out the class very well. Here are more recruiting notes from Richard Davenport.

Arkansas Track and Field – Arkansas' track and field programs, both men's and women's, are easily the least frustrating and most successful teams on campus. Under unbelievable leadership with men's coach Chris Bucknam and women's coach Lance Harter, both teams have begun the 2014 season ranked among the top seven teams in the nation. The men's team opens the season at No. 1, and the women's team is No. 7. Arkansas' track and field program is simply a dynasty. There's no two ways about it.
