The Trough

I’ve been killer busy at work and since there hasn’t been much happening, this blog tends to fall to the wayside. But here are a few stories I’ve looked at the past week or so…

Razorbloggers:Razorbits (the boys throwing to Felix). Felix gets his rookie card. Matt Jones on the hot seat and Brett Goode is out in JAX. John Pelphrey talked to reporters recently. He also is planning a tourney at BWA and likes Snoop Dogg. D-mac picked his jersey #. Here’s a Petrino Q & A. If your in a barroom brawl pick a Hog for a wingman. Finally, the Sporting News is pulling for Casey Dick.

Friday Trough

Defensive Coordinator Ellis Johnson is leaving for South Carolina. Pat Bradley’s 3 point record in the SEC falls….and here’s a Bradley Q & A. The hogs got a rude wake up call when they returned from Georgia Sunday Morning, They were greeted with a 1:30 am practice (Via Expats). If they don’t improve they might be on the outside of the NCAA Tourney looking in. Robert Felton and Peyton Hillis look to shine in the Senior Bowl. AS360 has found a link to Petrino’s 2006 Louisville Playbook. Here’s a recap of the Ladyback hoops season since the loss of Ervin. The Gym’backs are #8 in the nation. UA junior Madison Palmer was named SEC Female Diver of the Week. FYI…Hog Baseball is less than a month away!

Mallett Floods Dorm Room

New Transfer QB Ryan Mallett moved into the dorms in Fayetteville this week. He became friends with TE Ben Cleveland during their recruiting process and stayed in touch over the past year. So, it made sense when he transferred that he’d move in with Cleveland. While putting a box in his new closet he knocked the fire sprinkler head off and flooded their dorm room. Reports have the water at 4 inches at it’s deepest point pouring out of windows and into other dorms. Cleveland wouldn’t speak about Mallett but his father said that all of Ryan’s shoes were destroyed and all of his clothes were wet. I would’ve loved to see this.

Whole Hog Sports

Update: I didn’t see The Hog Bloggers take on this yesterday (with ms paint goodness) or I would’ve linked to him as well….

Speaking of Nutt the Expats Remind us of Orville Henry’s Thoughts on his hire at Arkansas and Here’s AS360’s idea of a picture worth 3.6 million dollars and a new shirt. Here’s the Video Highlites of the Arkansas win over Missouri from Tuesday and more Pelphrey Awesomeness. The Basketball Ladybacks took care of Missouri at their place Tuesday as well.

Pre-Presser Trough
