It’s been two days and it still feels like Arkansas stole that game from Vanderbilt. Arkansas’ frantic comeback puts the Hogs in a pretty good spot heading into the second half of the SEC schedule. Relive the final moments of the game through Chuck Barrett’s radio call. It’s been a while since I’ve heard a radio call for three free throws be so exciting.
Some Vanderbilt fans were very upset after the loss and understandably so. It’s been a rough season for the Commodores and blowing a 15 point second half lead will cause even more frustration. One fan however, took some frustration out on the court once the game had ended. Thankfully nothing came of it besides some humorous videos. And considering the fan directed their aggression at Manny Watkins of all people, seems pretty safe it was an angry fan with little instigation.
We’re now less than a week from National Signing Day and right now Arkansas sits at 22 commits with 3 decisions to come on NSD. Chevin Calloway, Brad Stewart, and Malik Young all have Arkansas and at least one other SEC school in their list of finalists. There is also a couple of other recruiting notes, including an explanation to why Jeremy Patton will be on campus this summer rather than enrolling in this semester like he originally planned.
A week after Deatrich Wise made noise in the East-West Shrine game, two more Hogs will hope to improve their draft stock in the Senior Bowl. Toby Baker and Jeremy Sprinkle will participate and the game can be seen on NFL Network. Sprinkle will look to improve his stock after his poor decisions before the Belk Bowl and as a Punter Baker very likely could go undrafted but still is looking to impress prospective teams.
Just two days after trading for Logan Forsythe, the Los Angeles Dodgers made a move to add Brett Eibner to their roster. Forsythe projects to be the team’s new starter at second base. Eibner will have to work his way up the depth chart and may bounce back and forth between the big leagues and AAA to start.
