Bruce James calls the Hogs 

Saturday’s game Arkansas (1-0, 0-0 SEC) vs. Vanderbilt (1-0, 0-0) Where: Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Fayetteville Time: 6 p.m. Radio/TV: The ARSN network will broadcast the game on radio affiliates. What James says: God forbid we lose to Vanderbilt, but we didn’t look good last week. And I don’t like those new Oklahoma-style jerseys, though [David] Bazzel does. About Vanderbilt: They gave up a lot of rushing yards to Wake Forest (5.6 yards per play) in their opening win. With their big road win last week, Vanderbilt is going to come in with confidence, play hard and give us all we want, but they just don’t have the talent to hang with us. We’re going to punish them with the running game and wear them down. Keys to the game: Arkansas cannot give up the big play like they did last week, can’t have fumbles like last week and must play a lot better. It’s hard to tell what we have defensively. We do have some genuine SEC-type backs on offense to control the ball against weaker teams. Arkansas will have to keep the football away from Vanderbilt’s quarterback, Jay Cutler, and the way you do that is running the football. The pick: 32-21 Arkansas. Watch former Arkansas All-American defensive end Bruce James along with David Bazzel and host Steve Sullivan on KATV, Channel 7’s “SportsWeek” Sundays at 10:30 p.m.

  • Hitting students

    A friend once joked that I love Arkansas so much that if they ever cut me open, they'll find an Arkansas-shaped heart beating inside my chest. It's true. But just as the state was beginning to show off her spring beauty last week, I was reminded of what a dark and imperfect place Arkansas can be.
