Weekend Trough

Pelphrey’s Hogs Beat Northwestern State 90-59 Wednesday. They’ll be playing Appalachian St. Saturday in N.Little Rock. Pelphrey told the players they’re plans for a Christmas at home with their families depends on this win. Reggie might be headed to Texas A&M. Patrick Beverley is accused of being a baby’s daddy. Ben Cleveland is Happy with Petrino. McFadden is an International Star. Three former hogs have made the NFL Pro Bowl. All the Hogs are eligible for the Cotton Bowl and the kickers had a pressure packed practice. Finally a Twist on a Christmas Classic.

Houston Nutt Resigns As Arkansas Head Coach

At the 6:30 pm press conference Houston Nutt made it known that he resigned the position of Arkansas Razorback Head Football Coach this morning. Reggie Herring was named interim head coach for the bowl game. Jeff Long will begin the search for a new head coach as soon as possible. Chancellor White will ask the Razorback foundation to release the “Golden Handcuffs” and treat Houston as if he had been fired (He’ll be getting a nice severance package). KATV, Arkansas Sports 360, and the Memphis Commercial Appeal are reporting that Houston is one of two lead candidates for the Ole Miss Rebels job that was vacated when Ed Orgeron was fired this past weekend. Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Rick Neuheisel, a former Colorado and Washington coach, is the other lead candidate although Nutt is the firm leader.

Antwain Robison is back starting at Defensive End and Marcus Harrison is back from his suspension on the second team.

To the surprise of some, Alabama has the SEC’s current leading rusher in Terry Grant. McFadden and Jones are third and fourth respectively.

Here are two Razorback Reports. They Cover Harrison and Robison, Saban’s #’s vs. teams coming off bye weeks, Arkansas/Alabama open date trivia, and Herring talking about the “problems” with Alabama’s passing game.

Thursday’s Razorback Report (Wednesday’s Practice Roundup)
I just wanted to pick this great quote from Reggie about being happy with the defense’s effort this week…

“I don’t know about being happy,” Herring said. “We ain’t happy until we go undefeated and date the prom queen. Right now we’re just taking it day to day.”
