The SEC Nation crew is heading to Fayetteville for the opening weekend of the season. The show broadcasts from each SEC campus throughout the season. Joe Tessitore will be the host this year along with Marcus Spears, Paul Finebaum, Kaylee Hurting, and Greg McElroy. Fans can show up to the mobile studio similar to College GameDay. The show broadcasted from Fayetteville last year for the Alabama game and set up on the grassy hill just north of the stadium.
Barford is a 4* combo guard prospect according to 247sports. Originally from Jackson, Tennessee, he has offers from - in addition to his five finalists - Alabama, Auburn, Wichita State, and many others. He was an honorable mention juco All-American last year after averaging 20.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 5.1 assists, and 2.4 steals per game for Motlow State Community College in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
Daly made a 10 on the par 3 7th at the PGA Championship and promptly tossed his 6-iron into the lake. Icon.
The is pretty sweet. I don't know why Arkansas chose to filter the video in sepia tones, but it's still good. That's freshman Ryan Pulley trying to guard him. Pulley's gotten rave reviews this spring and could end up on the two-deep, but he probably wishes the team didn't choose this play to highlight.
Today is finally the Razorbacks' day in Bill Connelly's advanced stats breakdowns of all 128 teams. It's a thorough guide on the Hogs' roster, schedule, and stats from last year that could be relevant this year. Check it out.
ESPN's SEC bloggers break down the Hogs, their schedule, and make predictions. I agree with them in that Texas A&M is the most important game, however I also hate "most important game" rankings because obviously every game is important (well, except for you, UT-Martin). Also, they list WR as Arkansas' biggest question mark and fail to mention Dominique Reed. They have the Hogs at 8-4. In their league power rankings, they have Arkansas 5th. That's somewhat odd, because Arkansas will likely be better than 8-4 if they finish 5th in the league.
Despite all the recent negative vibes surrounding Arkansas basketball, at least one national analyst, Joe Lunardi from ESPN, is picking the Razorbacks to make the NCAA Tournament. He has Arkansas as one of his "Last Four In", meaning Arkansas would be one of the four teams to play in Dayton. Considering the local expectations for the team, Mike Anderson should win coach of the year if this happens.
Fisher is a consensus top 100 point guard out of Memphis. Arkansas has been on him for a long time and were expected to be a finalist, so we'll see how this goes. Hopefully, the Hogs can get him to take an official visit during an exciting weekend on campus. He'd be a really big get for Mike Anderson.
Big news for Arkansas' top in-state prospect. Agim has a top four of Arkansas, Baylor, Texas A&M, and Ole Miss, but the Razorbacks are the favorite. Nobody has made a prediction on 247's crystal ball other than for Arkansas in over a year for the Hope defensive end. Here's our 6-months-to-go recruiting class analysis published earlier today.
The Hogs had a shot at Evans. He was on record recently as saying Arkansas was recruiting him the hardest, but apparently he will stay a bit closer to home and go to Ole Miss. Missouri, Kentucky, and Auburn were other finalists.
