Clint Stoerner, former quarterback (96-99) and current radio personality was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated early Saturday morning in Fayetteville. Stoerner was also charged with violation of implied consent, meaning he refused to take a blood, urine, or breathalyser test to determine his blood alcohol content.

*The 66 points scored against UNT is the sixth-highest figure in school history and the most in a non-overtime game since 1928 (a 73-0 win over Texas Southwestern). The Razorbacks scored 71 in a seven-overtime victory at Kentucky (71-63) in 2003.
*Arkansas generated 713 yards of total offense, which is the second-highest figure in school history. The record is 859 yards against Pittsburg (Kan.) State in 1936.
*Darren McFadden recorded his 16th 100 yd. rushing game, tying Ben Cowans for the school record. He also moved into second place on the schools all-time rushing list (153 yards behind Cowans).
Arkansas Defensive Tackle Marcus Harrison pleaded not guilty Friday to possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession, speeding, driving on a restricted license, not wearing a seat belt and failure to appear.
The charges stem from his arrest Aug. 24 for possession of an Ecstasy pill and two marijuana cigars
His trial is set for Nov. 20, three days before Arkansas faces second-ranked LSU in Baton Rouge in the regular-season finale.

Several blogs have been weighing in on Darren McFadden’s Heisman chances since the Kentucky loss. The overarching opinion, he could/would win it if he didn’t have Nutt for a coach.

Hogs Still Have Hope But Does McFadden?
Corey Beck’s condition was upgraded to fair Wednesday after being shot in the face and hand during a robbery attempt Sunday. Beck and a friend, Timothy Wilkins, were in a car when they were approached and shot. Beck, who was driving, managed to direct the car to a local fire station. Wilkins was treated and released from the hospital on Sunday.
Many around the blogosphere are picking up on a couple of stories about Arkansas fan unrest over Houston Nutt. There appears to be a campaign to encourage people who want Nutt fired to wear black to Saturday’s North Texas game. Also, money is being collected to fly Anti-Nutt banners over the stadium for the rest of the season. They’ve collected enough to fly the first plane, also during the N.Texas game. Hog Blogger, Every Day Should Be Saturday, Fanblogs.com, and Losers with Socks have made note of the situation. With the way Arkansas fans have been “showcased” by ESPN this past year with the FOIA request, the lawsuit, and the reaction to the whole Springdale mess, I have little doubt the national sports media will eat this up next weekend.

Danny Nutt Banned From Coaching Booth
I didn’t realize that the NCAA had restrictions on who could be in the “Bench Area” or the coaches booth. D. Nutt, who was seen Saturday in the coaches booth, has been notified that he is no longer allowed in either area. The UA won’t be punished for the previous transgressions.

I didn’t mention this in the post below but wanted it noted that for a decade the first SEC loss of every season has been followed by a loss in our very next SEC contest. Think about that. This is a crazy stat. Congrats Houston. I can’t say that your not consistent.
