National Picks - Week 4

The 2012 college football season is about to reach the 1/4 mile pole. Arkansas is lagging far behind and will need to make a Mine That Bird-like charge to get back in the national consciousness - at least for positive reasons. The Razorpod crew is still fired up, though, and the national picks roll on.

Patrick Williams (8-10): Oregon, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Clemson, Arkansas, BYU
Johnny Fayetteville (10-8): Oregon, Notre Dame, Kansas State, Florida State, Arkansas, Missouri
Tom Logan (10-8): Oregon, Michigan, Oklahoma, Florida State, Arkansas, Utah
Jimmy G (12-6): Oregon, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Florida State, Arkansas, Southern Miss

The Razorpod crew's "Faces of Arkansas Football" bestows this week's honor upon Fred Thomsen. Fred coached the Hogs from 1929-1941 and compiled a record of 56-61-10.

Career Highlights: Led Arkansas to its first ever bowl game in 1933 when the Hogs faced Centenary in the Dixie Classic (7-7 tie). Arkansas won its first SWC title in 1936 with a 5-1 conference record and 7-3 overall ledger. Amassed ten ties during his tenure.
Career Lowlights: Arkansas had to vacate the 1933 SWC title for using an ineligible player. Had more ties than wins in the 1932 season as Arkansas went 1-6-2. Arkansas went 13-25-2 over Thomsen's last four seasons.

Take a bow, Coach Thomsen. You are this week's "Face of Arkansas Football".

See ya next week,
Jimmy G
