September 24, 2014

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The 2014 season didn’t start well for the Arkansas Razorbacks, getting handled 45-21 Aug. 30 at Auburn.

The last two wins are most impressive, going into Lubbock, Texas, and downing the Red Raiders 49-28 and beating a Northern Illinois team 52-14 that had won 17 straight road games — and just missed out going to a Bowl Championship Series bowl last season.

Some things Poteau Pirates' Friday night win taught me

September 24, 2014

There were several things I learned from Friday night's Poteau home opener against Campus, Kan.:
1. The Colts are the fastest paced fast-break football team I have ever seen. However, for a team that like to run inside screens, their receivers are timid. On the split screen, the receivers had the ball on their hands numerous time but dropped at least seven of those passes due to the presence of Austin Archey and his fellow Pirates as the Kansans wanted no part of those head hunters.
