Razorpod Picks - Week 3

Louisiana-Monroe Week is in the rearview mirrer, though objects are closer than they appear. Arkansas is moving on to face number one Alabama in the SEC opener on Saturday, and the crew has predictions on that game and more. Picks and records are below.

The Faces of Arkansas Football rolls into week two, and Razorpod is proud to honor Coach Francis Schmidt. Schmidt coached the Hogs from 1922-1928 and compiled a record of 42 wins, 20 losses, and 3 ties. Career Highlights: 1927 team finished with 8 wins against just 1 loss. This set a then-Arkansas record for most victories in a season. 1928 team went 7-2 and finished second in the SWC. Career Lowlights: 1924 team managed to finish 7th in the SWC despite a 7-2-1 record (conference record was 1-2-1). Lost 60-13 to Baylor in his first season as head coach. 1925 team was shut out 4 times in 9 games. Left Arkansas for TCU after the 1928 season. Congratulations, Coach Francis Schmidt, you are this week's "Face of Arkansas Football". (All information provided by the 2012 Arkansas Football Media Guide)
