Arkansas Razorbacks Internet Chatter: April 29, 2014: Korliss Marshall, Recruiting News, Patrick Beverley

News, notes and interesting reads from around the interwebs.

Freak Show – Bret Bielema said sophomore running back Korliss Marshall had a couple of runs this spring that he called "freak shows." And that was before he exploded for 99 yards and two TDs in the spring game... on six carries. As Doc and I watched Marshall put the Arkansas defense in the rearview on his 59-yard TD run last Saturday, I, in amazement, laughed and stated the obvious: "He's really fast". To which Doc replied, "no, he's Osceola fast. I love him so much." Here's more on Freak Show's big Red-White game.

Post-Spring Power Rankings – Another Red-White game is in the books, finally closing the door on Bret Bielema's second spring with the Razorbacks. Arkansas didn't necessarily look like world beaters in last weekend's spring game, but how do they stack up with the rest of the SEC West after spring ball? Here is Barrett Sallee's take.

What offseason? – You may wonder or at least have the occasional thought as to what college football players are actually up to in the summer months after spring ball and before fall camp. Are they working out and getting better or are they gettin' with the honeys at the club more often than not? Well, former Auburn tight end Phillip Lutzenkirchen is here to give you answers.

Daniel Bush – If it looks like Arkansas' new assistant recruiting coordinator is in his mid-20s, it's because he is. Like most of us entering college, he had no idea what he wanted to do as far as a career path. But after getting help from his high school football coach, Bush GOT HIS FIRST GIG AT ALABAMA UNDER NICK SABAN (why can't we all be so lucky?). We'll obviously see how he handles his new crootin' responsibilities, but he feels this new job is just an extension of his duties at Bama.

Patrick Beverley – The former UA guard and his Houston Rockets fell once again in overtime to Portland Sunday night, bringing the series count to 3-1 in the Blazers' favor. But Beverley is sure the series is a far from over. I believe you, Pat. We believe you. Let's get it.

Mike Bolsinger – Another former Razorback made headlines last Friday as Mike Bolsinger earned the first win of his career at Wrigley Field against the dreadful Cubs. The Diamondbacks have gotten off to a rather Cub-like start to the season and needed a jolt from its pitching staff. And Bolsinger was there to provide that. Sooie, Mike.
