I'm going to try my best not to be lame and pretentious while I write this, but I've said it for a while now – Jonathan Williams is the best running back on the Arkansas roster. And those who think Alex Collins is certainly could make a case; he's had a pair of terrific seasons. Collins really tore it up his freshman year and was probably the lone bright spot in the horrendous 3-9 season of 2013. But personally, I like the style of running back Williams is – strong, great feet, reads his blocks really well. He might just be the top running back in the SEC.
BERT made his way into Oklahoma yesterday evening to speak to a group of Tulsa-based Razorback fans and the turn out was really good, like record crowd good. Bielema, especially after the 7-6 season and positive momentum heading into the offseason, typically draws a good crowd of people. People are excited about Arkansas football again, and Bielema is relishing in it.
Not only is this weekend a big one for both the men and women's basketball teams and the baseball team as it heads to Vanderbilt, but it's also a huge couple of days for track and field as it hosts the NCAA Indoor National meet Friday and Saturday. The Traveler did a couple of previews for it, one for Lance Harter's No. 1 women's team and one for the No. 3 men. There are still some general admission tickets left, but it may cost you a little bit.
You don't need me to tell you that March is one of the best months of the year for sports fans. But the regular season was pretty insane, too. Kentucky went 31-0, lots of guys didn't care that the person they dunked on was someone's child, and Jerian Grant at Notre Dame basically climbed a dude and dunked on him. Tons of craziness went on, but luckily we have all of it in 40 vines. But there's not a single vine of Michael Qualls bodybagging someone, which is wrong on a lot of levels.

It was pretty easy picking a winner this week after seeing this.
