Depth Chart Update: Two Weeks Until Gameday

Depth Chart Update: Two Weeks Until Gameday

Looking at the two-deep with two weeks to go. Quarterback Austin Allen, SR Ty Storey, SO OR Cole Kelley, R-FR No surprises here. It sounds like neither Storey or Kelley has established themselves as the clear backup thus far. Running Back Devwah Whaley, SO David Williams, SR OR Chase Hayden, FR Maleek Williams, FR Chase Hayden is really impressing the coaching staff so far. He keeps this up and there could be some competition with David Williams to back up Whaley. David Williams could be the short yardage guy while Hayden’s speed can be utilized in other ways. Fullback Kendrick...

Arkansas Football Phraseology: Targeting

Arkansas Football Phraseology: Targeting

phra·se·ol·o·gy noun a mode of expression, especially one characteristic of a particular speaker or writer. This series will take a brief look at some terminology that is both Arkansas Football specific and those that are used across the College Football landscape. Targeting In the 2016 season the Arkansas Razorbacks were on both sides of multiple targeting calls, some of which seemed sporadically enforced. The main underlying goal of the rule is sound in that it attempts to lower the number of avoidable shots to the head and neck. There are many of these hits that just are not...

Positional Preview Part Seven: O-Line, Nowhere to Go but Up, Right?

Positional Preview Part Seven: O-Line, Nowhere to Go but Up, Right?

For Arkansas to succeed, the O-Line must improve. It feels like a lifetime ago when Arkansas when the offensive line was on the cover of the media guide and you heard “did you know Arkansas’ line is bigger than every NFL line?” Every. Single. Game. In 2016, it was a struggle to say the least. Austin Allen was constantly picking himself off the ground, even to the point opposing players were going on about how tough he was. Needless to say that needs to change in 2017, and so far it sounds like things have gotten better. There are two reasons for that, experience and continuity....

ProHogs: NFL Fall Camp Updates

ProHogs: NFL Fall Camp Updates

How are some former Hogs doing with their NFL squads? Fall camp is underway for all 32 teams, and there are former Hogs scattered around the whole league. Last year we ended with Trey Flowers getting a Super Bowl ring after a big performance. Now there’s a whole pack of Razorbacks who have moved up to New England. Let’s check on him and some other notable Hogs. After a underwhelming rookie season, Pete Carroll has some good things to say about Alex Collins. He has slimmed down a little and looks faster as well. Collins has said he paid close attention to his diet this summer and he...

Diamond Hogs Summer Report

Diamond Hogs Summer Report

Summer Leagues, Recruiting, and Coaching Changes As collegiate summer baseball leagues are coming to a close, the fall semester is well within view and the Razorbacks are eager to get back on campus in search of a second consecutive regional host for the first time in over a decade. Of those playing this summer, perhaps no one had more success than center fielder Dominic Fletcher who was named the California Collegiate League All-Tournament MVP this week. For the tournament he hit .470 with 2 hits in each of the 4 games including a double, home run, and 3 RBI to lead his team to the league...

Notes From First Fall Scrimmage

Notes From First Fall Scrimmage

Who impressed in the team’s first scrimmage? Arkansas ended the first full week of fall camp with a 140 play scrimmage. You can check out some unofficial stats here. Obviously there aren’t any huge takeaways to be made but these scrimmages do help us learn more about who is winning position battles, what units look improved and who might surprise us this year. First at the QB position, Austin Allen was his usual efficient self. He went 19-22 and cleared 300 yards with a long touchdown to La’Michael Pettway. Ty Storey looks to still have the lead for the back up spot as he came out...

Who Redshirted In 2016 That Will Make an Impact In 2017?

Who Redshirted In 2016 That Will Make an Impact In 2017?

A few players who could make that leap. Predicting who will make the big jump from an unknown to a difference maker for a team is difficult. A handful of guys redshirted freshman year and have carved out a nice role on the team. Kevin Richardson, Santos Ramirez, Karl Roesler and Austin Allen all redshirted their freshman year. All four should get a healthy amount of playing time this year. These four are my most likely to make the jump from redshirting to having a significant impact. Part of it comes with talent, and the other is opportunity to play. You won’t see Cole Kelley on this list...

Positional Breakdown Part 6: Specialists, Uncertain Potential

Positional Breakdown Part 6: Specialists, Uncertain Potential

Punters are people too! Often overlooked until something goes wrong, the specialists are always an important part of the game. Last season field goal duties were split between Adam McFain and Cole Hedlund. McFain has graduated so duties will fall squarely on Hedlund, who was reliable on extra points but less so on field goals. He went five of seven but never connected over 38 yards in 2016, putting some more pressure on the Hogs’ offense. If Hedlund can add that extra point level consistency to longer distances then he will be exactly what the Hogs need. He was one of the top recruits...

Maureese Wren Commits to Arkansas

Maureese Wren Commits to Arkansas

6’4” 215 lb. ATH from Mesquite, TX The Razorbacks have been needing an outside linebacker for the 2018 class and it appears they have one in Mauresse Wren. Wren plays both wide receiver and outside linebacker for his high school in Mesquite, Texas but the Hogs have been recruiting him for his defensive work. GodBless .. pic.twitter.com/6zuiyn9IQZ— WEAPON X (@MaureeseWren9) August 3, 2017 He is a three-star according to 247Sports but has seen a big upward swing in the rankings in the past couple of months. Wren chose the Hogs over fellow Power 5 schools Baylor, Washington,...

Previewing the Hogs’ Opponents: Defense

Previewing the Hogs’ Opponents: Defense

SEC defenses won’t be much better and may regress in 2017. Can the Hogs capitalize? This is Part II of our stats-based look at Arkansas’ 9 Power Five opponents for 2017. (See Part I here.) To look at defense, I decided to who is bringing back the most sacks per game and the most interceptions per game. There are some similarities to our Rushing and Passing chart. TCU is bringing back a lot of production. South Carolina is not bringing back much. Overall, three teams finished higher than Arkansas on both charts: Alabama, TCU, and LSU. Two teams finished lower on both:...

Positional Breakdown Part 5: Quarterbacks, Fighting for the Future

Positional Breakdown Part 5: Quarterbacks, Fighting for the Future

We know the starter, but who’s the backup? As we go into his senior year, Austin Allen is one of the top returning quarterbacks in the SEC. He leads returning quarterbacks in passing yards, passing touchdowns and quarterback rating in 2016. All that to say the only way anyone else at quarterback will be there because of a blowout or an injury. The most important thing involving the quarterback is everything surrounding him. Allen will be throwing to a new group of receivers and will be hoping the offensive line improves and keeps him upright. Because in addition to throwing a ton of...
