    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Though a linebacker by trade, Grant Morgan also plays on Razorbacks special teams. So for his first opportunity  as a Razorback, the fifth-year senior from Greenwood  relishes having a full-time special teams coordinator as much as the punters and place-kickers do. The Razorbacks had no special teams coordinator during Morgan’s two years under Bret Bielema and first year under Chad Morris. Barry Lunney had the title last year but was busy coaching…

Reed figures Fort Smith becomes  sort of his new hometown. Reed, senior tight end Blake Kern of Lamar and  redshirt freshman offensive lineman Beaux Limmer of Lamar all met with media on Zoom Monday night following the Razorbacks’ closed practice.

    Arkansas Razorback Rakeem Boyd Solid NFL Prospect

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE –  Barring injury it seems Sam Pittman will live up to his promise making Rakeem Boyd a better 2021 NFL draft prospect than had Boyd turned pro in 2020. Boyd already seemed a solid NFL prospect as the junior Arkansas running back netting 1,133 rushing yards in 2019.  He did so despite playing for the second consecutively  miserable 2-10 Razorbacks team under the Chad Morris regime. However after talking to new Arkansas…

    Football Zoom Razorback Kickoff Luncheon

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Coaches begin every football season telling every player how much he means to the team while those on the back bench quietly disbelieve they mean it. This COVID-19 coronavirus year they do.  New Arkansas Coach Sam Pittman drove that point home in Friday’s annual Razorbacks Kickoff Luncheon, a luncheon without food held virtually on Zoom because of COVID-19. College teams practice knowing they can be a day away from an outbreak…

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – The way Brady Latham has practiced lately compels finding him a spot to play on Arkansas’ offensive line, new Razorbacks head coach and former 2013-2015 Razorbacks offensive line coach Sam Pittman said after Thursday night’s practice. With left guard the by far the line’s most open spot, Pittman and offensive line coach Brad Davis presently have the redshirt freshman from Jenks, Okla. at first-team left guard going into Saturday’s mock game.…

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Most likely it’s time.  Time perhaps enhanced these off these last two Fridays first  leading the offense through an excellent scrimmage and then this week rallying the offense after it was defensively dominated. Whatever, Arkansas Coach Sam Pittman sees a marked  progression in graduate transfer Feleipe Franks conversion from former Florida Gators quarterback to the quarterback leading the Razorbacks whom he joined last January. “ Obviously Feleipe is running a lot…

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Sam Pittman presumed after Arkansas’ offense was defensively dominated in last Friday’s Razorbacks scrimmage it would take sufficient offense to practice much better this week. According to fourth-year junior right  offensive tackle Dalton Wagner after Tuesday’s practice, Arkansas’ offense verified the head coach’s presumption. “The offense, we came out swinging,” Wagner said. “We knew what our standard was. We knew that the scrimmage on Friday wasn’t our standard and isn’t what…
