2012 Arkansas Spring Game Results: Post-Petrino Era Begins

Less than a month after former Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Bobby Petrino crashed his motorcycle with his alleged mistress on it, lied about it, paid her $20,000 and gave her a job, then consequently lost his own job, the football team played it's annual spring game to try to get the fans excited about Razorbacks football yet again.

It worked.

Quarterback Tyler Wilson, fresh off leading the Hogs to one of their best seasons ever from an offensive standpoint, was 31-41 for 467 yards and three touchdowns in leading the Red team to a 65-0 win over the White. Though Wilson is missing some of his favorite targets from last year's team, he managed to find receiver Chris Graggs for two touchdowns in the first half, signaling an early connection between the two.

Couple Wilson's performance with the anticipated return of running back Knile Davis from last year's season-ending knee injury, and there are plenty of reasons to be excited again in Fayetteville. Just don't go joyriding over it.
