    Hope Watermelons on the Razorback Field

    When Hope native, David Johnson, would run the Arkansas Razorback practice field, all he could think about was Hope Watermelons. Johnson said that every time he would run back to the huddle, he would tell his teammates Scott Bull (Quarterback), Jerry Eckwood and Ike Forte (Running Backs), “It’s so hot out here! I would give ANYTHING for an ice cold Hope Watermelon right now!” Johnson, an Arkansas Razorback Full Back from 1974-1976, thought long and…

    Razorback News – August 17 Scrimmage

    FAYETTEVILLE – After Saturday’s closed 110-play situational scrimmage, Arkansas Coach Chad Morris insists his mind stays open through Wednesday’s scrimmage and perhaps beyond before announcing the Razorbacks’ starting quarterback for their Aug. 31 season-opener against Portland State. “I don’t know the exact time we’re going to name a starter,” Morris said post scrimmage.  “I want to go through definitely Wednesday and see where we’re at.  We’ve got some work that we’ll do later in the…

    Razorback August 10th Scrimmage

    FAYETTEVILLE – From the all you’ve got is their word Arkansas Razorbacks  closed scrimmage Saturday, Arkansas quarterbacks Ben Hicks, Nick Starkel, John Stephen Jones and KJ Jefferson all fared well after redshirt freshman Jones jump-started the offense. “John Stephen got in on the second series and he led his team down, his group down and scored,” Arkansas Coach Chad Morris said. “He showed just his ability to make plays happen when the pocket breaks down…

    Razorback Player Feature-Colton Jackson

    FAYETTEVILLE – An illustrated dictionary defining “no good deed goes unpunished,” could post Colton Jackson’s picture. Because for returning just three games into the 2018 season off July 24 back surgery,  it seems  left offensive tackle Jackson  got punished for  the  Razorbacks’ 2-10 record. According to his University of Arkansas media guide biography, Jackson, starting eight of Arkansas’ last nine games, “allowed just one sack over the course of 305 pass blocking plays.” That stat does…

    Razorback Player Feature-Austin Capps

    FAYETTEVILLE – Austin Capps hasn’t ridden the two-way street for the Razorbacks as easily as he did starring for Star City. Still, Capps persists plowing first through one football facet and then another at the University of Arkansas  like he plowed through the fields of the cotton and soy beans  farm back home. Farm boy Capps starred at Star City as a 4-star recruited defensive lineman also known to shine on the offensive line. It’s…

    Razorback Player Feature – Deon Stewart

    FAYETTEVILLE – If he were a boxer instead of a 5-11 Razorbacks  wide receiver, it could be said that Deon Stewart once ate his way from welterweight to light heavyweight. Beginning  his final University of Arkansas season,  Stewart weighs  a middleweight.  The 161-pound  fifth-year senior  from Hardy finds  that’s hard to stomach. “I had a goal weight and I didn’t meet that weight,” Stewart said  “That was kind of a downer for the summer for…

    Arkansas Razorbacks Jordan Jones Interview

    By Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Starting Year Two, the Chad Morris Arkansas Razorbacks regime added team speed it desperately sought. But it didn’t add to its top speed. Jordan Jones, the receiver recruited out of Smackover and redshirted in 2016 by Arkansas’ former Bret Bielema regime and lettering in 2017 as a reserve for Bielema and for Morris in 2018, remains the fastest Razorback, second-year strength coach Trumain Carroll confirmed at the outset of Arkansas’ …

    Arkansas’ 2020 Football

    FAYETTEVILLE – The Arkansas Razorbacks’ 2020 football vision doesn’t include War Memorial Stadium and Little Rock for the first time since before the stadium opened in 1948.

    D’Vone McClure plucked from nickel back to linebacker

    By Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Calling Arkansas Razorbacks junior D’Vone McClure plucked from nickel back to linebacker becomes not only an accurate summation but a timely pun. For the native of Rixey and graduate of Jacksonville High has been “Pluck” the vast majority of his life. “My auntie gave me the name and it stuck,” McClure said.  “I go back to Jacksonville and nobody calls me D’Vone.  Everybody calls me Pluck.  Literally, that’s all I’ve…

    Nate Allen – Feature on Linebacker Grant Morgan

    By Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Missing their best in the spring prepared Arkansas’ linebackers for among the worst that could happen to them and their defense this fall. And even if the best holds forth healthy all year, his spring absence created more autumn depth. Arkansas’ best senior middle linebacker and 2018 SEC leading tackler, De’Jon “Scoota” Harris, missed spring ball for surgery repairing a chronic foot injury. Harris returned full tilt starting with Arkansas’…
