Knile Davis Making the Most of His Playing Time Against the Colts

From pee wee on through the NFL coaches are always telling their players one thing: If you don't start you still need to be ready to play. Everyone is one play away from having to go the whole game. It sounds like an empty promise designed to give backup players--that is, until someone gets hurt and you do have to go in. The question than becomes can you prove you belong or...

2013 Prospectus: Arkansas Razorbacks

So the coaching search at Arkansas begins in earnest, as disastrous interim head football coach John L. Smith finally rides off into the sunset with a nice sendoff (but a mercifully quick one) from athletic director Jeff Long.Smith has been retained as a “consultant” until his contract runs out in February, but I seriously doubt any new coach who comes to Fayetteville will want...

Arkansas facing crisis of confidence

The easiest crisis to pinpoint is the quarterback. If Tyler Wilson is less-than-full-speed on Saturday, Arkansas will almost certainly struggle, especially given how dominant Nick Sabans Alabama defense has looked in their first two games. Even playing at home in Fayetteville, and even with running back Knile Davis healthy and stronger than ever, the Hogs are a passing team....

Alabama Crimson Tide at Arkansas Razorbacks Week 3 College Football Preview

The Tide continue to roll regardless of their opponent and it shouldn’t change much in this matchup. The status of All-American quarterback Tyler Wilson is vital for any chance of an upset to be made.
