I Give Thanks for Stefan Welsh

And Courtney Fortson.

And Rotnei Clark.

And John Pelphrey.

And last-second wins.

And my cable system, which carries CSS and allowed me to watch that last-second win.

Hold on ... I'm still trying to catch my breath after jumping around my den like a total idiot after Welsh nailed the game-winning shot ... OK, I'm ready.

What a nice victory for Pelphrey's young Razorbacks, one that will hopefully do wonders for their confidence. To not only pull out a last-second win on the road, but to do so after trailing by as many as 10 points in the second half - that was impressive.

And what a joy it was to see the fast-paced offense, the bulls-eye three-point shooting and the dynamic freshman duo of Fortson and Clarke. It felt like old times.

Maybe their final record won't be anything special, but I think this year's team is going to be very fun to watch. And after the plodding, grinding style of the Heath era, that's something we can all be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Woo Pig Sooie!

    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.

    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.
