Razorpod Picks - Week 2
A new feature of this years pick column will be the "Faces of Arkansas Football". Each week a former Arkansas Razorbacks head coach will be featured. Razorpod could think of no better way than to start with Joe Kines. Coach Kines was the head coach at Arkansas from 1992 to 1992. A glorious season (minus one game) that included Arkansas' initial SEC game and campaign. Kines finished his Arkansas career with a record of three wins, six losses, and one magnificent tie (against who else but Auburn and Pat D(t)ye himself). Career highlight - leading Arkansas to its first every SEC win at South Carolina (45-7) just one week after the infamous loss to The Citadel elevated Kines to the head coaching position and a 25-24 upset of 4th ranked Tennessee in Knoxville. Lowlight - just about everything else. Arkansas was 1-6-1 Kines other eight games including a 22-6 loss at Memphis State that featured having four punts blocked by the Tigers (by the same player, actually). Also, Kines unwittingly hired his replacement when he brought Danny Ford in as a consultant. Here's to you, Joe Kines, a "Face of Arkansas Football". On with this week's picks.
Patrick Williams (3-3): Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Florida, Arkansas, Oregon State
Johnny Fayetteville (5-1): Nebraska, Georgia, Iowa State, Texas A&M, Arkansas, UTEP
Tom Logan (6-0): Nebraska, Georgia, Iowa, Florida, Arkansas, Auburn
Jimmy G (5-1): Nebraska, Georgia, Iowa, Florida, Arkansas, Northwestern
Congratulations Tom Logan for an undefeated week.
See ya next week,
