Jared Cornelius coming back from injury was a huge plus for the Hogs in the second half of last season. He's got plenty of talent off the football field as well. ESPN's Edward Aschoff has a feature on Cornelius' skills in music. Cornelius has been making a name for himself as DJ JRed. He has produced plenty of beats that can be found on SoundCloud and iTunes, and can play seven instruments as well. As he looks to have a bigger role with the Razorbacks this year, his producing career will continue to grow as well.

A position change for Frank Ragnow has not lowered expectations on him this season. Despite never starting a game at center, he was named to the Remington Trophy watch list. The SEC is well represented on the list, with eight teams' centers on the list. More about his move can be found here, including Ragnow's mindset going into the season. He says the line is as athletic as Arkansas has seen, it is just a matter of getting comfortable with the new line. And that comfort level could be the key to the success of the offense.

Wondering where Arkansas will land on the multitude of top-25 lists this preseason? Whole Hog Sports has a recap of who has and who hasn't added the Hogs. Most have them on the outside looking in. So far CBS Sports is the only major publication with the Hogs in at No. 20. The best chance to jump in to the rankings will come early though with a road game against TCU coming in September.

The scenario is bleak but clear for Arkansas baseball. After losing to Missouri State, a series win against top-5 ranked Mississippi State is the only way to finish the regular season above .500. Here are the scenarios that need to happen for Arkansas to make the SEC Tournament as well. The article also talks about the issues that need to be fixed that will result in a Razorback in, not surprisingly it surrounds the starting pitching situation that has plagued the Razorbacks all season.
