#HaithWeek – Last basketball season when Missouri came to town Arkansas escaped with a narrow and controversial win over the Tigers. Arkansas then traveled to Columbia and got trounced by 30 points in Anderson's first return to COMO. In that game, Missouri head coach Frank Haith was restrained by his assistants after stepping toward Anderson for some unknown reason. But Haith declares he and Anderson are good friends and there is no bad blood between the two (also talk about Bielema/Barry Odom in the link). But Haithers gonna Haith, I guess.

New Border Battle – I've heard several good names for the budding Arkansas-Missouri rivalry, but I like Border Battle best. I've even seen "the Ozarkalypse" thrown around. It's clever, but I don't know if it'll stick. Nonetheless, Hogville Nation has taken to the message boards to discuss Tuesday's Border Battle. "Frank the midget is the one I can't stand," says one poster. You're going to want to read this. Here are the keys to an Arkansas win Tuesday night, also, via Hogville.

Alvin Bailey – Former Razorback Alvin Bailey is headed to the Super Bowl as a key member of the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawk offensive line. Bailey would have been a senior last season with the Razorbacks, but opted to declare for the NFL Draft, and thus far, has worked out in his favor. KARK Channel 4 News in Little Rock caught up with Bailey's uncle, who is largely the reason behind why Alvin chose Arkansas in the first place. The Bailey's are a proud, and very large family as you'll see in the feature.

Born to Run – As part of a 14-part series, documenting and reviewing each SEC football team's season in 2013, Team Speed Kills presents the Arkansas edition. Arkansas ranked in the top 25 in fewest penalties and net punting yards, which if you're good at, probably isn't a good thing. Regardless, Arkansas saw some good things happen, especially in the LSU game. QB play will be a key moving forward, TSK says, and you're crazy if you think they're wrong about that.
