Ole Miss Preview

The crew (minus Logan) takes apart the Ole Miss game set for Historic War Memorial this weekend.  The picks look pretty much unanimous, with a few exceptions.  Can Arkansas' defense hold the Rebels or is the key matchup the Arkansas offense vs. the Ole Miss defense?

Auburn Wrap; Kentucky Preview

This week's edition of Razorpod is upbeat, reflecting the Hogs' 24-7 win at Auburn last week.  We are all SMILING as John L has commanded, and we have a good time looking forward to the Kentucky game in Fayetteville this weekend.  Picks are horrendous as usual, with Patrick Williams vying for the all-time cellar position, 8 games under .500 only a month into the season.  It wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, and its not over for P Williams either, as he continues the double-up-to-catch-up strategy that has always served him so well.

National Picks - Week 6

Week 6 of the college football season is upon us, and the leaves are changing Iowa anyway. Wonderful trip with Patrick Williams and his Iowa crew last weekend, but reality is clearly back upon us. The Hogs embark on their second straight road trip as they head to Auburn, Alabama. Coach John L. Smith remarked that the Hogs really travelled well last week. As in they literally travelled well. They got on and off the plane, found their hotel rooms, rode the team to the stadium, and made their way back to Fayetteville with all their luggage. If you really do make the most improvement from your first road trip to your second, the Hogs should be something else this weekend. They may even help the valet park cars. Travel like a champion, Arkansas.

National Picks:
PW (13-17): Nebraska, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Auburn, Northwestern
JF (17-13): Ohio State, West Virginia, LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Texas Tech
TL (17-13): Ohio State, West Virginia, LSU, South Carolina, Auburn, Ole Miss
JG (17-13): Ohio State, Texas, LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Syracuse

This week's "Faces of Arkansas Football" honors Dr. Lou himself. Coach Lou Holtz patrolled the sidelines in Arkansas from 1977-1983 where he compiled a record of 60 wins, 21 losses, and 2 ties. Holtz replaced Arkansas legend Frank Broyles, and he immediately paid dividends.
Career Highlights - Led Arkansas to an 11-1 record in his first season and capped it off with an Orange Bowl win over Oklahoma and a number three ranking, 1979 team went 10-2 and appeared in the Sugar Bowl, demolished number one Texas 42-11 in Fayetteville in 1981, beat Florida in the 1982 Bluebonnet Bowl as the Hogs finished the season in the top 10 of all the major polls.
Career Lowlights - 7-5 season in 1980 that included a loss to Rice, questionable pass interence call in the SMU games cost the Hogs a shot at the 1982 SWC title, 6-5 season with no bowl appearance in his final season - 1983, dealing with athletic director Frank Broyles.

Congratulations, Lou Holtz, you are this week's "Face of Arkansas Football".

See ya next week,

A&M Wrap; Auburn Preview

JimmyG and Patrick Williams return from Iowa City on this week's edition of Razorpod, glad to have not witnessed even one play of the Hogs' 58-10 whitewashing at the hands of Johnny Manziell and the Texas A&M Aggies.  The crew, led by Johnny and Tom, details the loss and the crew has a spirited discussion of John L.'s decision to kick a field goal down 38 points.  The picks contest is shaping up to be a good one, with Johnny, Tom, and Jimmy G all tied in first place.  Patrick still well below the Mendoza Line and no amount of double-up-to-catch-ups will help him.
