Before We tackle the basketball stuff lets round up the other Hog loose ends….Arkansas Baseball split a two game set against Van Horn’s former team, Nebraska…Tuesday-UN 6-UA 1 Wednesday- UN 4-UA 9. The Hogs were ranked #15 by CFN’s Hoops & Helmets Rankings (a combined ranking of a schools Basketball and Football program).
Now onto tonights game…Sonny Weems sprained his knee during practice on Tuesday…but he’ll play tonight. March 11, 1999 was the last time the Hogs won a NCAA tournament game. Arkansas has only faced Indiana one other time, a 75-70 loss in 1949. The Expats have a Q&A with Former Hog and current Buzz Radio Host Pat Bradley. The Razorbloggers look at tonight’s game. Pelphrey touched on “The Shot“, you know that shot taken by Christian Laettner in 1992 that knocked off Pelphrey and Kentucky in the Elite 8 during his press conference earlier this week. Bill Clinton might be at tonight’s game. Around the SEC Kentucky and Georgia lost their First Round NCAA tournament games. Ole Miss won their First Round NIT game. And Finally (via the Expats) Wally Hall put up his guide to Little Rock in his column on Thursday. Tre Baker or Arkansas Sports 360 pretty much rips it apart. Then Baker posted his own Alternate Guide to Little Rock for each of the visiting teams and it’s hilarious…
Starkville fans, prepare to be amazed. Spread out across the metropolis are eating places called “McDonald’s”. You’ll be fascinated by the technology used to fulfill your gastrological indulgences: Watch as they make your hamburger from INSIDE the building. Listen as the French fry machine plays “Oye Como Va”. You won’t find sweet tea here, but you will be able to observe technology dispense your drink using an electronic pump device. Rest rooms are indoors as well, complete with running water.
Hope your bracket doesn’t get busted and GO HOGS!
