If Darren McFadden doesn’t return home from New York with the Heisman Trophy, the award has lost all merit.
The trophy clearly reads, “Most Outstanding Player in College Football.” No other six-set of words could describe McFadden, who shred LSU’s defense to bits last Friday with 206 rushing yards, 34 more passing yards and four combined touchdowns as the Razorbacks won their first game over a top-ranked team in 26 years.
After much anticipation and hard work, Arkansas has an official hockey team.
The Arkansas Razorback club hockey team has been practicing at the Jones Center for the last two of months in preparation for its first season as a part of the American Collegiate Hockey Association.
Arkansas started each half slow in Saturday’s 62-51 win over Oral Roberts. The Razorbacks fell behind by double-digits in each half, including a 10-0 deficit to start the game and trailed 36-26 less than three minutes into the second frame.
Arkansas overcame the deficits, thanks in large part to Darian Townes.
Despite not scoring a point for the first seven minutes of the game, Arkansas used a second half surge to come away with a 62-51 win Saturday over Oral Roberts.
Gary Ervin led three Razorbacks in double figures with 16 points. Darian Townes scored 14 points and Patrick Beverley added 13.

After the stress of finals subsides, many of us will be tempted to simply bask in our newfound freedom over the winter break before we have to return to the grind in January. For most of us, a break is not only needed, but also well earned. However, it would do us all some good to remember there are plenty of others out there who could use a break, as well.

Last Thursday, Jeremiah Born participated in an activity he thought would be harmless fun, but it sent him to jail charged with a felony instead, he said.
