Monday Evening Hodge Podge

Posted By on Mon, Aug 4, 2008 at 5:29 PM

Greetings Expats readers...apologies for my long absence from the blog, but I've been living in a tent outside the Green Bay airport for the past few weeks, waiting patiently for Brett Favre's triumphant return. Now that the biggest event in the history of the universe is behind us, I can resume my regularly scheduled Razorback blogging. So, with that in mind, some links:

* The freshmen football class started their first training camp as Razorbacks today, and Arkansas Sports 360's Chris Bahn has the full report. Kind of crazy to think that the first game is coming up in less than 4 weeks.

* What's the top SEC rushing offense of the past 15 years? Any Hog fan would tell you that it's obviously the recent McFadden/Jones/Hillis attack, but according to one Tennessee blogger that team ranks no higher than third. Check out his full list here, and prepare to be morally outraged.

* If John Pelphrey owes you money, now is a good time to collect: he just got a raise.

* Reader Eastville Holdings passes along an article about former Hog Shawn Andrews' battle with depression. The Expats staff will be keeping a good thought for him...I'm sure he can rely on the rational perspective and cheerful nature of the Philadelphia Eagles' fanbase to help him through this tough time, too.

* Georgia celebrated being ranked #1 in the preseason coaches poll with a fun weekend that saw two players arrested and two hospitalized from a bar fight. Come on guys, is that the best you can do? I'd expect more from the #1 team in the country.

* A Florida fan previews their October 4 tussle with the Razorbacks. His predicted final score is 45-24, although we won't spoil the surprise by telling you who he's thinking will come out on top.

* The word out of Dallas is that Felix Jones might play "a larger role than expected" in the Cowboys' offensive plans. Even famed Hog fan Peter King took a few minutes out of his Favre vigil to write: "Felix Jones is going to be good. Maybe really good. He runs smoothly and with a fluid determination. You aren't going to see many backs cut with the quickness and decisiveness Jones runs with."

  • Where in the World is Charles Balentine?

    Charles Balentine remains well-known among Razorback fans for hitting the 3rd biggest shot in Arkansas history (we'll give you two guesses as to what #1 and #2 are), but many other details of his storied career are slipping away into the mists of time.

    Razorback news and notes from around the web (warning: some of these links aren't exactly timely, but then again you probably already knew not to count on us for hot-off-the-presses info): * Nate Allen rips Jeff Long a new one (he even busts out the Y-word).

    This year's NFL draft has come and gone. ESPN can put Mel Kiper back in the closet, or he can go back to the Pentecostal Church he pastors.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
