Last week the Arkansas football team lost yet another staff member when Taver Johnson left to take the defensive backs coaching position at Purdue. Johnson spent the last two seasons as the Razorback’s assistant head coach and linebackers coach.
Johnson and Purdue coach Darrell Hazell were on the same coaching staff at Ohio State for four years, from 2007-2011, and is a main reason...

Arkansas Razorbacks running back Alex Collins found himself in an awkward situation with Southern Miss defensive back Ed Wilkins on Saturday.
Seen here is Collins somehow managing to get his jersey stuck in Wilkins' helmet on a play.
Hilarity ensues as the referees and trainers attempt to detach the helmet.
Eventually, they were successful in their...

The Arkansas Razorbacks survived a scare last Saturday as they defeated the Samford bulldogs 31-21 in Little Rock. The Arkansas football team played some seemingly uninspired football as Samford was in the lead heading into the fourth quarter.

The win for the Arkansas football team on Saturday was closer than most Razorback fans and coaches would have preferred. The Samford Bulldogs (1-1) actually took the lead into the fourth quarter 21-17 and had Arkansas fans in an eerily similar situation to last year’s ULM game. Arkansas (2-0) finally rallied the troops and cruised to the...
Arkansas football coach Bret Bilemea released his depth chart for the season opener against Louisiana. Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins are the top two at running back. Will Hines nudged ahead of Jared Collins at cornerback.
Brandon Allen was silky, but that was no surprise. And it probably shouldn't have been that the blue chip freshman running back was as advertised. Alex Collins was the real deal Saturday in his first Arkansas scrimmage.
