Will Bobby Petrino Go Gator?


Urban Meyer's departure from Florida has set the coaching carousel spinning. Will Bobby Petrino stay at Arkansas, or is he going Gator?

Urban Meyer Steps Down (Again)


I love December traditions - Christmas decorations, family visits, letters to Santa and Urban Meyer's annual resignation from the University of Florida. Jokes aside, the coaching carousel is about to start spinning a LOT faster. Fasten your seatbelts!

2010 All-SEC Team Announced


The AP's 2010 All-SEC team was announced earlier today, and congrats are in order to Knile Davis, D.J. Williams and DeMarcus Love for making the 1st team (D.J. was one of five players to be chosen...

The Hogs Are Heading for Sugar!


Auburn beats South Carolina and Arkansas is heading for the Sugar Bowl. The Expats break it down.

Ryan Mallett as Vanilla Ice?


Straight from the twisted mind of Every Day Should Be Saturday's Spencer Hall comes this awesome parody of "Ice Ice Baby", starring our own Ryan Mallett. Enjoy...



Final thoughts on the 2010 Battle for the Boot between Arkansas and LSU. A great game!

Sweet as Sugar? Arkansas 31, LSU 23


If, after the Alabama game, anyone predicted that the Hogs would cap a 6 game winning streak by knocking off LSU with a punishing, clock-eating ground attack, please raise your hand. No one? That's...

Boot Battle Memories #1: The Wood, Brought


The final clip in our Boot Battle series needs no introduction. Ladies and gentlemen, a post-game interview so amazing it inspired its own hip hop remix...BRING THAT WOOD:

Boot Battle Memories #2: Just Another Miracle


The last time LSU visited Little Rock, they were victimized for the second time by miraculous doings on Markham St. Casey Dick ended his tumultuous career as the Arkansas QB by tossing a...

Boot Battle Memories #3: Miraculous


Memory #3 doesn't need much of an introduction. The Miracle on Markham, ladies and gentlemen:

Boot Battle Memories #4: McFadden Explodes


Continuing in our series of favorite LSU-related memories, the #4 slot goes to an event from what was ultimately a fairly crushing game: the 2006 one in War Memorial. But, Darren McFadden's 80-yard...

Chris Low: "Hogs looking for season-defining win"


ESPN.com's Chris Low says the LSU game will define the way Arkansas fans remember this season. We agree 100%.

Open Topic: Jordan Jefferson


Expats readers: I'm curious to hear what you think about LSU QB Jordan Jefferson. Although he hasn't looked particularly impressive in his two previous games against the Hogs, and was outright...

Boot Battle Memories #5: Casey Dick's Block


Over the next few days we'll be counting down (or building up?) to the Arkansas-LSU game by posting some of our favorite clips from past battles for the Boot. Coming in at the #5 slot, we have this...

Hey, It's LSU Week!


Hey, it's LSU week! The Arkansas Expats are looking for your favorite Hogs-Tigers memories.

Knicely Done: Arkansas 38, Mississippi St 31


Just another nice, relaxing day in Starkville, right? Knile Davis went from being the hero to the goat and then back to the hero as the Hogs gutted out a hard-fought win against Mississippi State....

Thursday Hodge Podge


A few quick links to help you pass the time between now and kickoff: * the Hog Database says the Mississippi State game is the most important one the Razorbacks have played since 2006, and follows...

Houston Gets Nutty


We try to stay away from Houston Nutt coverage around these parts - it's been nearly three years since he coached at Arkansas, after all - but sometimes it's too hard to resist. Apparently inspired by the Rebels' epic beatdown at the hands of Tennessee, the Right Reverend went on a somewhat unhinged rant about the state of the program at his Monday press conference. Here's the full transcript...definitely worth a quick read.

A Good Day for D.J.


D.J. Williams is on a hot streak lately. We explain why.

Razorbacks Are Ready for the Stretch Run


As we move into the regular season's final act, it's clear that Arkansas is peaking at a good time. Although we shouldn't get too excited by the win over UTEP - the Hogs were almost surely going to...

Mission Accomplished: Hogs 58, Miners 21


After a couple of early hiccups, the Hogs accomplished both their key missions for the UTEP game in rather easy fashion: 1. rack up an impressive-looking win 2. avoid any major injuries (although R...

Under Seige at Auburn


Quite understandably, Auburn fans have a pretty serious bunker mentality these days. But, even the craziness of the last week doesn't fully explain this post. If the title - "Gene Chizik: Coach, Father Figure, Captain" - doesn't make you want to read it, nothing will. Utterly fascinating stuff.

Quick Tip About UTEP


Should you want to do some background research on UTEP, check out our fellow SB Nation blog, Miner Rush. There's not a lot of content about Saturday's game up yet, but that's ok...we've been slacking a bit on that front too.

Seeking YOUR Input on the Fate of Reasons to Hate


I was just about to sit down and provoke our interns into a rage-filled fervor so they could generate ideas for our weekly "Reasons to Hate" post when I realized something: last week we didn't run...

Beaten By Cam Newton Twice In One Year?


How does the Cameron Newton situation affect Arkansas? The Hogs might be his victims twice in one year.

This One Time at Band Camp...


It's been an interesting season to say the least: big wins, tough losses, records falling left and right...and now we have the unlikely spectacle of the football jocks and band nerds coming...

Three Quick Links for You
