The band spells out "Go Hogs" during halftime of every Arkansas home game.
With an upcoming out of conference game approaching this Saturday when Rutgers travels to Fayetteville, Arkansas to take on the SEC opponent, DoubleGSports.com reached out to one of the top bloggers covering the Razorbacks to ask a few questions about the matchup. Doc Harper runs the website called Arkansas Expats and can be found and followed on Twitter @doc_harper. Take a look and see what Doc had to say about the upcoming game between Rutgers and Arkansas.
DoubleGSports: It’s been a disappointing start to the season for the Razorbacks. Do you feel this is a team that can turn it around, or has the coach already lost the players?
Doc: The great hope is that when/if Tyler Wilson returns, things will get back to normal. Fans are hoping he’ll play Saturday but he hasn’t been cleared yet. The coaches may have lost the players but Wilson hasn’t. The coaches have even deemed Wilson the team spokesman...

FAYETTEVILE, Ark. -- Tyler Wilson had a moment before the Alabama game when he wanted to do anything but heed his doctors' orders.
Concussion or not, the Arkansas quarterback wanted to play against the No. 1 Crimson Tide.
"Give me my helmet," Wilson thought. "I don't care what anybody else says, I'm playing."
Of course, Wilson didn't play in...
John L. Smith does not have a future career in motivational speaking. In fact, he may not have any job in the near-future as his Arkansas Razorbacks have lost to Louisiana-Monroe and Alabama in the last two weeks. At a news conference this week, the head coach noticed how down the media members were so he instructed them all to smile -- in an extremely awkward way, as seen below.
DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY
John L. Smith is the Arkansas Razorback’s head coach and is a really eccentric guy. He commanded these reporters to smile at his press conference. Arkansas fans aren’t too happy with Smith now and are calling for a new coach. Arkansas has lost to Louisiana-Monroe and Alabama in the last two weeks. This may be the shortest interim head coaching stint ever.
HT Team Speed Kills
Arkansas Razorbacks head football coach John L. Smith made things awkward for the media at the start of his weekly press conference on Monday by insisting that they smile, which was strange given that the team just came off a 52-0 loss to Alabama this past weekend.

John L. Smith is the gift that keeps on giving, unless you are a fan of the University of Arkansas football team. As a Spartan fan, I am too familiar with his many shortcomings as a coach.

Preseason expections were high for this Arkansas team despite the loss of Bobby Petrino, whose departure from Fayetteville was highly publicized, especially on this site. Still, with John L. Smith at the helm many thought the Razorbacks would compete for an SEC crown. Many thought they had the title to potentially compete for a national title.
Well, three games into the season following...
Arkansas seniors Alonzo Highsmith and Tyler Wilson have tried to provide some leadership this week for a Razorback football team that is reeling heading into Saturday's game with visiting Rutgers.
Arkansas Razorbacks: John L. Smith met with the media yesterday and started out by yelling at them to “smile” and “get your head up.” How much more of this can we take?
