Arkansas Razorbacks Internet Chatter - Football Review, ProHogs, and Kingsley's Block Party

Checking in on the Razorbacks this season, both past and present.

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

There are still over two weeks until Arkansas' Liberty Bowl against Kansas State, so now fans will just have to sit and wait. And wait some more. Right now, most content is reflecting on the season the Hogs had and ESPN has a good review of the their roller coaster season that went from the lows of losing to Toledo to however many miracles the win against Ole Miss took. The look ahead to 2016 shows why Arkansas should be optimistic much like it was last offseason - a more experienced defense should go a long way.

The 2016 season will happen without offensive line coach Sam Pittman. For the past three seasons he was a huge part of the Razorbacks' coaching staff. How many offensive line coaches get to brag about their players getting on their team's media guide. He will certainly be missed next season and plenty of players have been emotional about his departure. One just had to browse twitter about the time the news broke to see how disappointed some lineman were.

The college season might have wrapped up but the NFL is right in the middle of the playoff race. You can check how your favorite ProHogs are doing here. After a slow start Darren McFadden has fit in well with the Cowboys, getting another 100-yard game. He is up to 669 rushing yards this season, so a 1,000 yard season is unlikely with just three games left, but its nice to see him stay mostly healthy for a season Jarius Wright and Javontee Herndon also caught five passes each for the Vikings and Chargers.

Maybe some Arkansas basketball can fill the football-less void you have. The hoops Hogs have recovered well after a slow start and are putting some nice wins together. One big change has been the defense of Moses Kingsley. The Hogs had a Steven Hill-style block party against Tennessee Tech. Kingsley talked here about how fun getting those blocks can be, plus some fun little quick hits about the rest of the team to get you up to speed before conference play.

We should also give a shoutout to Blake Anderson, Arkansas' Assistant Director of Sports Turf Operations. He recently won the Sports Turf Managers Association's third annual "Mowing Patterns Contest" for his work at Baum Stadium. Congrats!
