The coach who inspired Nolan Richardson’s “40 Minutes of Hell” philosophy, Don Haskins, has died. UA freshman Ethan Tracy made his Razorback debut memorable leading the men’s golf team to victory while earning medalist honors at the Maryland Intercollegiate in Cambridge, Md., Sunday. The Women’s Soccer team improved to 4-1 on the season after defeating Samford 1-0 in double overtime Sunday.
Two big notes…The 4 and 1 fake to Michael Smith/bomb to Chris Gragg to the ULM 7-WOW. That’s why you hire Bobby Petrino. Second, Casey Dick just became the first Razorback to post back to back 300+ yard passing games.

This Week From The Bench…
I believe the new coach is much more willing to take that chance. Whether you like it or not, the fate of this team almost certainly lies on the shoulders of your fourth-year quarterback. Players who are good as freshmen and have unproven ability will rise or fall with the play of Dick. He will make the difference if they become great as players and a team. We will see this season if Dick can pick himself off the grass with turf in his helmet and if his teammates still believe in him to carry on the battle to hit back.
