Whaley looked a good deal quicker after dropping a few lbs. Hayden looked like he is 100% recovered and is a little better at blitz pick up than Hammonds. That figures into how the snaps are divvied up quite a bit.

Patton and O'Grady at TE with Cantrell getting a lot of work also.

At WR, it's funny how recruiting works out sometimes. Nance was looked at as a buddy-system pick up to get Martin or just a guy. If you watched the two last fall, you'd think Nance was the 4 star and Martin the wing man..

Martin looks the part, but just hasn't stayed healthy or learned the offense well enough or something.

I'll say Cornelius has the chance to be to this offense what Trey Quinn was at SMU. Pettway seems to be rejuvenated with the coaching change but needs to be more consistent.

I'll say, Cornelius, Nance and Pettway with Woods being a freshman. This staff is high on Woods, though and he will get a lot of looks as he did in the spring game.

He was missed twice when he was open in the endzone, so hopefully the QB, whoever it turns out to be, can get these guys the ball better than on that cold day at WMS..

I mean, you see the vitriol here. We do a good job of keeping it contained and removed for the most part but it's  unreal.

I'm convinced that razorback fans do not deserve success. Being a baseball fan and a Razorback fan do not go hand in hand. I wish the Razorback fans would stay the heck away from this place and let the Razorback baseball fans enjoy this team without the vitriol.

This past weekend was miserable for me. If not for the regulars who post here and the guests who add to the discussion, I would have said screw it and let them have it. Following baseball shouldn't be miserable.
I haven't even logged in until just now because I knew how bad it would be.

I would put the UA's academic center that Jerry just finished up against any school in the SEC.

Stanford is impressive.  That's where president's kids go to school, but it's not for everybody.  I know people who could have gone to Stanford and they just didn't like the vibe of the students.

One man's trash is another man's treasure.

Right! The Stanford band has a terrible reputation around the country for their antics...

Not to mention, Debi Thomas, the Olympic figure skater (and ex-wife of a former Hog) has a degree from Stanford. How did that work out?

I'll tell any who don't know. She couldn't cut it due to the business side of medicine and is living in a trailer in WV with her unemployed BF and selling some kind of gold bars online in a controversial pyramid scheme.

I know that is an extreme case, but some need to get over this one-size-fits-all attitude of such and such degree is worth so much more $$$ than another degree yada, yada, yada.

No degree from Harvard or any other college guarantees anything, it's what the individual does with the degree afterward and the knowledge they collected along the  way and how they apply it.

Stanford is a very impressive school and has a really good CFB program. I don't know if Tiger Woods obtained a degree from Stanford although he went there, but I do know it didn't do him any good when Elle Nordgren was bashing in the windshield of that SUV or all the calamities that followed..

It appears Knight is starting to wear down a little. He's still pitching well, but not at the level he was early season. So that's concerning a little.
He has been taken for granted to get that guaranteed Friday win. He's showing that he's not Superman.

Knight generally pitches once every 7 days and averages less than 6 innings per start. I am surprised that he would be wearing down.

This past weekend was miserable for me. If not for the regulars who post here and the guests who add to the discussion, I would have said screw it and let them have it. Following baseball shouldn't be miserable.

I recused myself from being around for game 3 last Saturday ... not solely because I was upset at the way the series was playing out - and I was quite upset over it ... I recused myself from the thread so that I wouldn't be tempted to say ANYTHING that might be misconstrued by casual followers as the type of vitriol that happens in other forums, and be tempted themselves to tirade about what was transpiring ... apparently it became worse than anything I could've imagined ...

I am sorry that things got so far out of hand that one of the best mods on Hogville was tempted to let the Hyenas have it ... in retrospect perhaps I should've controlled my emotions a little better and found a way to contribute that might have either helped stem the tide of negativity, or at least taken some of the bullets so that you didn't feel so overwhelmed ...

Now to my rant ... I'll be as brief as possible ...

I can't understand, even in the disappointment of being swept, what it must take to seek out, contact, and denigrate the people who actually had to endure the losses - live them first hand - and realize it was they who bore the responsibility for losing. Not us, the fans. We didn't swing a bat; we didn't field a struck ball; we didn't throw a pitch ... we didn't stand in the on deck circle thinking, "what must I do differently to help us win? What should I change? Should I change? How do I turn this around myself?" That's a lonely, lonely place to be - and there was an entire team and coaching staff that was probably thinking and feeling just that, whether they would admit it or not ... Those guys have worked their rears off - not just for a fall and a spring - not just for a year or two - some of those kids have worked their entire lives to get to that level of baseball, and that level of success ... they're doing all they can in the moment, sometimes trying too hard, but it's all for a shot at something much bigger.

And as fans we have the unmitigated balls to think WE are more disappointed than THEY ?!?

As baseball fans we all know that this game is a beautiful, amazing, game - based on failure. The mere act of hitting a round ball with a round bat, or throwing a curveball, while seemingly so simplistic, is so utterly complicated that we sometimes fail to appreciate the miracle of physics and coordination we are witnessing. The casual fan has absolutely no concept of what they're witnessing - all they know is the instant gratification of hit, run, score - or pitch, field, throw ... they have no sense at all of what it takes to train one's self to do those things with such skill that they become seemingly effortless ... and all the while your opponent is training himself to see that you fail in your endeavors ...

I have no patience with people who would attack the coaches and players of this team who are doing all they can to have a successful season, achieve personal and team goals, and perhaps secure a professional career; ever mindful that they are impacting thousands of fans who follow their successes and failures while representing the state and university emblazoned on their jerseys ... what amazing pressure they must endure, if only for our fickle pleasures and petty reactions.

End of rant. Go Hogs.

Great job by Andrew Landry.
Almost won at the Bob Hope this year too.

Landry joins John Daly, David Lingmerth, and Austin Cook as former Hogs who have won on the PGA Tour.
I fell out when CBS played the Arkansas Fight Song (momentarily, but they did) when Andrew was walking down the 18th.  They don't even do that for Spieth (The Eyes of Texas) nor Justin Thomas (Roll Alabama). So we did get some sweet pub.

I love to heckle players, but some of our fans get genuinely offended and I've been asked to be quiet and to stop.  Just saying...

Iíll give you a former playerís parent prospective: IMHO, if youíre more than 5 years older than the player, save your heckling for the blue, I enjoy the students heckling the ballplayers, especially from the hog pen (the ballplayers think itís funny too), but listening to grown men insulting young adults seems counter to the culture of the ballpark and Razorback athletics.

As a lifelong Red Sox fan - I became conditioned to heartbreak regarding baseball at an early age.
I can't imagine turning on your team for any reason - much less over losing a weekend series.
Those folks sending those emails aren't baseball fans - they've got to just pay attention to the Hogs.

Between Andrew Landry and the Lady Razorbacks, it was a good day for Razorback golf!

WPS!
