    Nate Allen on Arkansas vs Kentucky/Saturday Advance

    FAYETTEVILLE – Like champagne, Nick Starkel strives finishing with a kick. Quarterbacking  Arkansas possessions finished by kicking a PAT  is Plan A and a field goal Plan B. But Plan C punting  will do, Arkansas Razorbacks Coach Chad Morris emphasizes going into tonight’s SEC game at Kentucky. Razorback junior quarterback Nick Starkel (#17) from Argyle, TX takes the snap to drop back and pass against San Jose State at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in…

    Razorback’s Senior Defensive Lineman Jamario Bell

    By Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Finally as an Arkansas fifth-year senior, Jamario Bell chimes in the right position in the right health, playing the right way. All those rights make Bell the wrong man for opposing quarterbacks to see. As a Razorbacks defensive end, the 6-5, 265, Junction City native has caused  opposition Dysfunction Junction 3.5 times this season ending plays wrapping quarterbacks sacked. That leads the 2-3 Razorbacks in sacks this season, a major feat given…

    Razorback Feature on Desi Sills

    It wasn’t like former Arkansas Basketball Coach Mike Anderson didn’t want then freshman Desi Sills shooting last season. And it’s certainly not like new Arkansas Coach Eric Musselman doesn’t want now sophomore Sills playing defense. But, the different emphasis the former coach and current coach placed and place on Sills’ game manifests as the 6-1 guard and former 2-times state champion Jonesboro High School Hurricanes shooting star adjusts to his new coach and new system.“I love…

    Nate Allen on Arkansas Razorback’s Isaiah Joe

    FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas’ basketball coaching staff has changed entirely yet Isaiah Joe’s Razorbacks role remains as implacably steady as his implacably steady demeanor. Whether planting his skinny 6-5, 175 frame taking a charge from a powerfully out of control 260-pound power forward or effectively dialing long distance shooting threes like his 113 for 273 last season, sophomore guard Joe seems filling the bills for new Coach Eric Musselman’s Razorbacks like he did making the 2019-2019 All-SEC…

    Nate Allen on Razorbacks Starkel & Hicks

    FAYETTEVILLE – Upon last summer’s Arkansas arrival and emergence of graduate transfer quarterback Nick Starkel it became natural to forget incumbent graduate transfer quarterback Ben Hicks’ command of the Razorbacks last spring. Arriving last January as a graduate transfer from SMU where he had been redshirted in 2015 by former SMU coach become Arkansas coach Chad Morris and was Morris’  SMU  record-setting starting quarterback in 2016 and ’17, Hicks took spring practice hold on the …

    Arkansas Razorbacks Basketball Media Day

    FAYETTEVILLE – Viewing one Eric Musselman coached practice Thursday on Arkansas’ basketball Media Day denotes many changes from the previous Mike Anderson regime. At least one aspect hasn’t changed.  Isaiah Joe, the now sophomore Razorbacks guard via Fort Smith Northside, still takes more charges than American Express. Joe cashing in on taking charges seems just as appreciated in Musselman’s all man-to-man halfcourt defense as it was in Anderson’s multiple pressing defenses. “Taking charges is part…

    FAYETTEVILLE – Ashdown frowned as Montaric Brown went down. Known more in his native Ashdown, or anywhere he else he goes, as Buster  than  Montaric ,  Arkansas Razorbacks  cornerback Brown went down from a leg injury during the second half of last Saturday’s game vs. Colorado State. With two pass breakups, a fumble recovery and four tackles,  third-year sophomore Brown  represented Ashdown and the Razorbacks well last Saturday at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. But Brown was…

    FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas last year couldn’t win a wild 34-27 game against the  Colorado State Rams in Fort Collins, Colo. But last year against Colorado State the Razorbacks didn’t have transfer quarterback Nick Starkel, freshman receivers Trey Knox, and Treylon Burks, freshman backup defensive back La’Darrius Bishop or even senior tight end Cheyenne O’Grady missing last season’s first two games apparently on disciplinary suspension. These Razorbacks had them all. And they all contributed to Arkansas…
