My real name is Stephen Ursery. A native of Little Rock and a graduate of Little Rock Central, I have lived in Atlanta for 12 years, thus fulfilling my lifelong goal of living in a city with mind-numbing traffic, lung-scorching air quality and a dwindling water supply.

My favorite Razorback memories are as follows:

(in person): the defeat of North Carolina in 1984 in Pine Bluff and the football team’s 1992 upset of undefeated Tennessee in Knoxville;

(on TV): U.S. Reed’s halfcourt buzzer beater to beat Louisville in the 1981 NCAA Tournament; the 1994 national championship victory over Duke; the 2000 Cotton Bowl smashing of Texas; and the 2007 triple-overtime defeat of No. 1 LSU.

My favorite Hog basketballers include U.S. Reed, Darrell Walker, Alvin Robertson, Lee Mayberry, Corey Beck, Corliss Williamson, Scotty Thurman and Dwight Stewart. For football, the list includes Derek Russell, Darren McFadden, Felix Jones, Quinn Grovey, Anthony Lucas and Steve Atwater.

An Almost Breakthrough: Alabama 72, Arkansas 66
