A youngster’s questions and answers with Arkansas’ Woodhall

Before the shutdown, Hogs' double amputee Hunter Woodhall sat down with 11-year-old J.D. Olson for a wide-ranging interview and here is that question-and-answer session.

Arkansas baseball radio color analyst Bubba Carpenter had some high praise for junior right fielder Heston Kjerstad the other day when he said he could play in the big leagues now.

Eric Musselman didn’t want to talk about past games with Kentucky this week, but Arkansas fans are going to turn back the clock Saturday.

MSU’s hiring Leach makes Pittman even more forgettable in critics’ eyes

If Arkansas’ hiring of Sam Pittman was vanilla, it became a little more so last week and the guess is that's just fine with the new coach who may be more comfortable under the radar.
