You Have Got to Be Kidding Me

Posted By on Thu, Feb 12, 2009 at 6:36 PM

Per Brandon Marcello at Whole Hog Sports' Slophouse blog, Courtney Fortson has been suspended indefinitely. That's right. Courtney. Fortson.

During Pelphrey's press conference this afternoon, a reporter remarked that people might say that Arkansas now has no chance against Kentucky on Saturday. According to Brandon, this was Pelphrey's response:

“I wouldn’t blame you for saying it. But by the same token, I’ve played enough and coached enough to know that it’s still a game. It’s not played on paper. We’ve got an unbelievable home court. If you have an unbelievable attitude, encourage your teammates, [and have an] understanding of what it’s about to be part of a team, anything’s possible. I’m sure some of the same things were said before Oklahoma and Texas, and I’m not going to sit here and tell you it’s not accurate. But I’ll tell you this, we’re going to work our tails off to get prepared.”

Stay tuned to The Slophouse for more updates.

And Chris Bahn of has a story up now and has promised updates.

  • 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.

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
