ESPN is currently having a look back in the time machine for each SEC program, taking a look at where each stood 10 years ago. 2006 was one of the most successful, drama-filled, and coincidental year for the Hogs. It was the season that started with the blowout loss to USC, the Mitch Mustain experience and ended with a bowl loss to Bielema's Wisconsin Badgers. That season was also the breakout year for both Darren McFadden and Felix Jones, the Leigh Tiffin game against Alabama, and the 31-14 win over Tennessee that College Gameday came for. Amazing how 10 years have changed things.
Of all five draft picks from Arkansas, its not surprising that Hunter Henry will have the highest expectations, and most likely the highest production. Phillip Rivers will be throwing passes to him in the future and already has high hopes for the tight end. The organization hopes that Henry can be the long term replacement for Antonio Gates (no pressure bud). He should be a part of a an explosive passing game right out of the gates though.
Its getting to do or die time for Razorback Baseball. After an ugly loss to Missouri State, three major SEC series remain. Arkansas is currently in a 4 way tie for 10th place, with one of the four likely being on the outside looking in for the SEC Tournament. The path to making the SEC Tournament is laid out here. If the Hogs can get some wins at home and tread water on the road, they should be able to hold on for one of those spots. If they want to make the NCAA Tournament, they will probably have to make quite a bit more noise in the final 10 games of the regular season.
It's been a dramatic week or so in the SEC West. Last week alone, four Auburn players were arrested on marijuana charges, Alabama's defensive line coach resigned amid NCAA questions, Laremy Tunsil put the $$ in Ole Mi$$, and just last night, Texas A&M went through a night that would have caused Hogville to flatten the Earth if it had happened here. After a 5-star quarterback decommitted, their wide receivers coach went on a Twitter rant about loyalty, which promptly led a 4-star receiver to decommit. It has our comrades at Good Bull Hunting reeling.
