The NFL draft is coming up this week and will bring a lot of excitement to fans across the country. I have been keeping up with the draft, especially Arkansas players, and how that plays out in the long run.

The achilles tendon is a vital part to normal daily activities. It is one of the longer tendons in the body that stretches from the heel all the way to the calf muscles. It allows you to extend your foot and do something as simple as point your toes to the floor.

Last week, a video went viral of a 7-year-old cancer patient scoring a touchdown during Nebraska’s spring game. I saw it posted many times before I caved and clicked on it — thinking I’ve seen this song and dance, I won’t cry, I won’t get goose bumps.

Upsets and underdogs are some of America’s favorite sports tokens. It wouldn’t be a good season of any sport if someone didn’t lose a game they were supposed to win — what would be the fun of that?

Ah, March, the time of year when it’s acceptable to leave work at noon, hit the nearest sports bar, and cheer for schools you’ve never heard of. This week I thought I’d take two of the major and Arkansas-relevant storylines and give you my take on them.

Streaks are very special in the world of sports. Long winning streaks don’t necessarily translate into championships, but they are fun to experience while they last. Sports have become a focal point in our culture, and winning streaks add another element to slip into casual conversations.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association does not have the best reputation in the national media. Within the last month, the hairy situation and botched enforcement job at the University of Miami has caused a firestorm of criticism to be thrown at the NCAA — especially its head honcho, M…

I for one, live for rivalries. I can smell one from a mile away. I love the calendar revolving around one date circled with a big, hideous red pen. Although poisoning trees is a tad insane, I have always longed for a rivalry of that magnitude and being an Arkansas fan has under-delivered.

ESPN features a signature week each February as their “Rivalry Week.” Before the game Saturday that featured Arkansas and Missouri, many may have not thought of it to be a rivalry game. In the wake of the Hogs thrilling 73-71 victory, a rivalry may have just been born.

Basketball is a funny game. No other sport is influenced by the atmosphere in the building and the emotion that builds on the court like basketball is. The game moves quickly up and down the court and a team needs to possess the ball for only a few seconds before a shot is made or missed and…
