Tough Non-Conference Schedule Awaits Lady Razorbacks

Tough Non-Conference Schedule Awaits Lady Razorbacks

Posted on 30 July 2015 by Allen

Arkansas

University of Arkansas women’s basketball coach Jimmy Dykes promised a tough non-conference schedule and he has delivered as the Razorbacks face four teams from last year’s NCAA Tournament in 2015-16.

The University of Texas, South Dakota State, Oregon State and Rutgers highlight the 13-game non-conference slate as Dykes moves into his second season at the helm. This season, Arkansas takes on six opponents away from their home arena with three true road games and three games at neutral sites. The Razorbacks were a perfect 6-0 in non-conference games away from Bud Walton Arena last season.

“We’ve put together a non-conference schedule that will test us and show both our strengths and weaknesses,” Dykes said. “This is exactly the kind of schedule I need to prepare for the always-tough SEC schedule in January. “It is a great balance with different kinds of teams, all of whom have unique skills that will challenge us. We have an extremely young team with eight newcomers and they will have to grow up quickly during the fall before we face the rigors of the SEC schedule.”

The season opens with an exhibition game against Missouri Southern Nov. 8. The Lady Lions are a familiar opponent for the Razorbacks in exhibition action with Arkansas winning six consecutive contests.

The first regular season game sees Arkansas host Southeastern Louisiana Nov. 13, in a game that is slated as the team’s Elementary Day, so fans can expect an early tip.

Arkansas continues hosting Sam Houston State Nov. 15, before facing the first of four NCAA Tournament teams in South Dakota State Nov. 18. That game is in Brookings, S.D. The Lady Jackrabbits upset Arkansas in Bud Walton Arena in the team’s first overtime game of the year and went on to earn a No. 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament. They were eliminated by No. 3 seed Oregon State in the first round.

Arkansas hosts Tulsa in a rematch from last year’s 64-53 road win for the Razorbacks on Nov. 23, before hitting the road for the San Juan Shootout, a Thanksgiving tournament where they face Louisiana-Lafayette and Oregon State. Lafayette tallied 16 wins last year and returns most of its roster while Oregon State was a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament and reached the second round. The Beavers had wins over powerhouses North Carolina and Stanford last season.

The Razorbacks open December with Missouri State, a team Arkansas defeated on the road, 59-50, last season. The Lady Bears had 18 wins a year ago. The third NCAA Tournament team on the non-conference schedule welcomes Arkansas to New Jersey, Dec. 6, when the Razorbacks travel to Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights were 23-10 last year with a 64-52 win over Arkansas in BWA. They advance to the second round defeating Seton Hall and falling to UConn.

December continues with a home game with Oral Roberts followed by a trip to Bulter before the Razorbacks face Texas in Oklahoma City, Okla., as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge Dec. 20. The Longhorns are quickly climbing back into the ranks as one of the top teams in women’s basketball.

Last season, Texas reached the third round of the NCAA Tournament and they return 13 players including four seniors from a year ago.

The non-conference schedule wraps up with home games against Mississippi Valley State Dec. 28, and New Orleans Dec. 30.

Auburn picked to win SEC at SEC Media Days

Auburn picked to win SEC at SEC Media Days

Posted on 17 July 2015 by Allen

Auburn

The competitiveness of the Southeastern Conference was showcased in the annual media voting at SEC Media Days, as for the first time in the 23-year history in the poll, media were divided on divisional champion and overall SEC Champion. By a narrow margin, the Auburn Tigers were picked by media in attendance to capture the 2015 SEC Championship. Auburn received 96 SEC Championship votes, while the Alabama Crimson Tide was close behind with 80. The Georgia Bulldogs were third with 28 votes.

Alabama, however, was picked to win the SEC Western Division with 1,405 total points, while Auburn was second with 1,362. Alabama received 92 first-place votes in the West, while Auburn collected 108. The Crimson Tide won the Western Division vote due to receiving just three votes for fourth place or lower in the Western Division, while Auburn received 26 such votes. Points were awarded on a 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 scale.

Georgia was selected to win the SEC Eastern Division with 1,498 points, including 166 first-place votes. Tennessee was second with 1,231 points and 36 votes to win the division, while Missouri was third with 1,196 total points. The two-time defending East representative in the SEC Championship game also received 20 votes to win a third consecutive division title.

Five times since 1992 the SEC Media Days predicted champion has proceeded to win the SEC Championship, including Alabama last season.

The preseason All-SEC Team will be announced on Friday.

Kirkland and Tretola Named To Outland Trophy Watch List

Kirkland and Tretola Named To Outland Trophy Watch List

Posted on 15 July 2015 by Allen

Arkansas

Arkansas offensive linemen Denver Kirkland and Sebastian Tretola have been named to the Outland Trophy watch list, given annually to the nation’s best interior lineman. The list was announced Friday by the Football Writers Association of America.

Kirkland enters the 2015 campaign with 21 consecutive starts and has played all 25 games of his two-year career. The junior played more than 750 snaps at right guard last season and graded out at 79 percent while allowing just one sack. He was penalized only three times throughout the entire 2014 campaign. Kirkland will move to left tackle this year where he will be tasked with protecting the quarterback’s blind side.

Tretola started the final 11 games of the 2014 season at left guard after he transferred to Arkansas from Iowa Western CC. He played more than 690 snaps and did not allow a sack, averaging a grade of 79 percent, tied for the second-highest mark on the team. The senior also launched a Heisman campaign after he threw a 6-yard touchdown pass on a fake field goal against UAB.

Kirkland and Tretola were part of the largest offensive line in the nation in 2014 – averaging 328.4 pounds per player. The Razorback offensive line was bigger than any starting unit in the NFL. It paid dividends as Arkansas led the Southeastern Conference in fewest sacks allowed (14). Kirkland and Tretola also helped pave the way for Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins to run for 1,000 yards each, the only duo in the FBS to top the 1,000-yard mark.

Denver Kirkland’s Preseason Awards

The winner of the 70th Outland Trophy, named after the late John Outland, an All-America lineman at Penn at the turn of the 20th century, will be announced on ESPN at The Home Depot College Football Awards on Dec. 10 for the first time from the National Football Foundation’s College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

Fry Earns Spot on Groza Preseason Watch List

Fry Earns Spot on Groza Preseason Watch List

Posted on 09 July 2015 by Allen

usc

Junior Elliott Fry has been named to the 2015 Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award watch list, as announced by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission Thursday morning. There are 30 kickers featured on the list, and Fry is one of three from the SEC.

The Frisco, Texas native is no stranger to the Groza Award, as he made the semifinal cut last season and was also named its “Star of the Week” after connecting on all four field goal attempts against East Carolina.

Fry has grown into a standout kicker after walking on to the team in 2013, and has since earned a scholarship through his outstanding commitment to the team on and off the field. After earning the job as a true freshman he has earned conference honors in each of his first two seasons in Columbia, including second-team All-SEC recognition in 2014.

Just two seasons in to his career with the Gamecocks, Fry already ranks second in school history in field goal accuracy (76.7 percent), third in PATs made, tied for third in PATs attempted and fourth in points scored. His current streak of 99-straight PATs made is already a school record and last season his 105 total points scored were the third-most in the program’s single-season history.

The Award is named for National Football League Hall of Fame kicker Lou “The Toe” Groza, who played 21 seasons with the Cleveland Browns. Groza won four NFL championships with Cleveland and was named NFL Player of the Year in 1954.

The team will kick off the 2015 season in less than two months, with a game against North Carolina on Sept. 3 in Charlotte, N.C. that will also air on ESPN.

Mr Commodore

Derek Mason picked up a big commitment from Cameron Tibb, a 3 star defensive tackle from Greenwood, Indiana who will add some beef to the defensive line. Tidd made the announcement on Twitter Thursday.

At 6’3 250 lbs Tibb is a junior who is flying under the radar in most recruiting circles. He had picked up offers from smaller schools like Bowling Green and Air Force. If he has a big year this season you know bigger schools will come calling. Nothing is official until he signs the NLI but it’s good to see Tidd is confident in his decision. Coach Derek Mason knows a lot about defense and can put him in a position to be successful on the field.

The Raiders will likely be a pretty big underdog in Tuscaloosa but it should be a fun game.

brohm louisville

Vanderbilt vs Western Kentucky has been moved up to Sept. 3rd. The game will be televised live on the SEC Network. Kickoff is set for 7 PM Central at Dudley Field in Nashville.

Commodore fans have to be a little worried after last year’s team laid an egg on Thursday night when they kicked off the season against Temple at home last year. The Hilltoppers were 8-5 last year with a bowl win. They are also returning stud QB Brandon Doughty who will likely be an NFL Draft pick next year.

The Dores have everything to lose and very little to gain by beating WKU. If Derek Mason’s team wins, it’s expected but if they lose, it will get nasty on talk radio on Sept. 4th.

Vanderbilt will likely be better on defense this year but offense is still a question mark. Ralph Webb will be the starter at running back after a standout freshman year. Quarterback and receiver is where the trouble was last year.

It’s sad but Western Kentucky is a must win for this year’s squad.

Posted on 16 June 2015 by Allen

miss st

Mississippi State junior defensive lineman Chris Jones has been recognized as a Sporting News preseason first-team All-America selection, the publication announced this week.

Jones, a native of Houston, Miss., has totaled 58 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, six sacks and five pass breakups in his first two seasons with the Bulldogs. Earlier this month, he was named to Phil Steele’s preseason All-America squad.

The versatile Jones and MSU are participating in summer workouts on campus before opening preseason camp on Monday, Aug. 3.

Hogs Falls to Miami in College World Series

Hogs Falls to Miami in College World Series

Posted on 16 June 2015 by Allen

Arkansas

The University of Arkansas baseball team (40-25) saw its remarkable season come to an end Monday evening, falling 4-3 to Miami (50-16) at TD Ameritrade Park in the College World Series.

Arkansas went from a 15-15 record on April 4, to making its eighth appearance in the College World Series, marking one of the best turnarounds in program history.

The Razorbacks faced deficits of 2-0 and 3-2, but rallied back both times to tie the game thanks to a Bobby Wernes RBI single in the eighth inning to send Tyler Spoon racing home to knot the score 3-3.

The Hurricanes would use a leadoff double in the bottom of the ninth, before a walk-off single handed Miami a 4-3 victory. Rick Nomura led Arkansas at the plate with three hits and a walk, including a sixth-inning single to plate the Razorbacks’ first run of the game.

Freshman right-hander Keaton McKinney was gutsy on the mound, battling through an injury to toss 4.1 innings and give up just two hits and one earned run. It marks the eighth time this season McKinney has thrown four-plus innings and allowed one earned run or less.

Clark Eagan added his 18th multiple-hit game of the season, singling twice and scoring run, while Brett McAfee added a hit, including an RBI single to tie the game in the seventh inning.

Andrew Benintendi ends his remarkable season with a .371 batting average and a nation-leading 20 home runs. He became the first SEC and National Player of the Year in program history and is in line to become the third player in SEC history to lead the conference in home runs and batting average.

The Razorbacks finished the 2015 season winning 40 games for the sixth time in the past seven years. Arkansas reached the College World Series for the first time since 2012 and the fourth time since 2004.
