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.

All Too Familiar: Oklahoma Sooners 78, Arkansas Razorbacks 63

After last weekend's UConn game, I was really hoping for a better showing from the Razorbacks today. In fact, I was kind of thinking they would win. As Rick Perry might say, "Oops." Instead, the...

Lots of Twitter buzz right now that Paul Haynes, who spent 2011 as co-defensive coordinator at Ohio State, will soon have the same title with the Razorbacks, minus the "co-." Check out this tweet...

Willy Robinson Is Out as Defensive Coordinator

In Other News, the Basketball Season Has Started

I have a confession to make: I haven't paid much attention at all to the Razorback basketball team this season. That may mean the federal government will revoke my blogging license but so be it: I...

Poll: Which Bowl Game Would You Rather See the Razorbacks In?

After Friday's shellacking at the hands of LSU, the Hogs won't be appearing in a BCS bowl. But they will almost certainly snag an invite to a good one, probably either the Cotton or Capital One.  I...

Not in Their League: LSU 41, Arkansas 17

Wow. I feel a little numb. That glorious and all-too-fleeting 14-0 lead seems like it was about 5,000 hours ago.  I don't have much to say right now other than LSU is good. Like really, really g...

R.I.P. Garrett Uekman

In the midst of our giddiness and excitement over the Hogs' looming showdown over LSU comes an awful reminder of the fleeting nature of life: Razorback redshirt freshman Garrett Uekman, a tight end, was found dead this morning. Cause of death is not known at this time. Our thoughts go out to Garrett's family, teammates and friends.

It's Always Something with Razorback Basketball

The Interwebs have been ablaze this afternoon with rumors that Razorback basketball star Marshawn Powell suffered a severe knee injury during practice this morning. Check out this recent tweet from Matt Jones of the Democrat-Gazette: "I'm in North Little Rock. Lots of chatter about Marshawn Powell. He is injured but the extent is unknown. Hope to hear more soon." I'm confident that Stan Heath is somehow to blame.
