  • RESIGNED: Jimmy Dykes.
After saying earlier this week that he hoped to continue as Razorback women's basketball coach, Jimmy Dykes has resigned, reports KATV .

Athletic Director Jeff Long's statement said in pertinent part, "I support his decision."

Nobody mentioned the incident in which several team members knelt earlier this season during the playing of the National Anthem. It enraged many in Arkansas, many of whom almost certainly had never seen a women's basketball game. Absent that episode would Dykes have survived a three-year record of 43-49? We'll never know. I'll still say Dykes handled that incident well.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
