Wednesday Hodge Podge

* Today's Wally Hall column probably deserves a full Wally Watch, but I don't have time.

It Was 20 Years Ago Today...

It isn't the most important moment in Hog history, but it's still one worth noting.

Staring Into the Void

Last night's entirely uninspiring but not at all unexpected loss to Florida not only marks the merciful end of the basketball season, it also signals the beginning of a loooong dead zone in the major Razorback sports before football kicks in again.

All Bad Things Must Come to an End

And thankfully, this mind-numbing regular season (or, to be exact, this mind-numbing conference season) is over.

Wally Watch: March 8, 2009

Wally Watch: Where we read Wally Hall so you don't have to. March 8, 2009: Angst building, but Pelphrey needs more time.

My Dinner with Nolan

OK - so maybe that headline is a tad misleading. Along with approximately 500 other people, I was fortunate enough to attend last Saturday's dinner honoring the 1994 national championship team.

Wally Watch: February 27 and March 4, 2009

Wally Watch: Where we read Wally Hall so you don't have to. February 27, 2009: 2009 Razorbacks could learn from 1994 Hogs Primary Theme: Something is rotten in Fayetteville, and the way to fix it is by following the example of the ’94 national champs.

I Can Now Die Happy

That's because I met Dwight Stewart - perhaps my all-time favorite Razorback - and have the photo above to prove it.

Best Mug Shot Ever?

How he'll do on the field remains to be seen, of course, but presumed-future-Arkansas-star-QB Ryan Mallett has already turned in one of the best athlete mug shots ever.

The Formula for Victory

1994 National Championship Team in Attendance + Weekendlong Festivities + John Pelphrey's Boots + Nolan Speech at Halftime + Playing Worst Team in the SEC* = Blowout Razorback Win Now, if we could just replicate that formula about 25 times a year we'd be in business.

Time Flies When You're Having...Well, Fun Isn't the Right Word

On January 6th of this year, the Hogs beat Texas in what I think we can all agree was one of the most glorious Razorback sports moments in recent memory.

Brual. Absolutely Brutal.

Yikes. So much for feeling optimistic.

Tuesday Diversionary Maneuver

In the ExPats' never ending quest to bring you diversion from obsessing on the current basketball season, we offer up the most unlikely Florida State Seminole of all time: Myron Rolle, Rhodes scholar.

A Noble Failure

Thanks to the wonders of satellite radio, I had the pleasure of listening to last night's game.

Houston Nutt Named Emperor of Mississippi and Other Fun Facts

Ok, it's been well-established that the basketball team is not exactly the most fun topic of conversation these days, so it's time to shift gears to something lighter: one Mr. Houston D. Nutt.

SEC Basketball Power Poll Ballot: Week 7

And now ... the moment you've been waiting for all day: the unveiling of this week's SEC Basketball Power Poll (like the JFK assassination and the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, this will be one of those "where were you when?" moments).

Sustained Mediocrity

I remarked recently that if you had told me in April 1994 how the Razorback basketball program would perform over the next 15 years, I would have been very, very surprised.

The Plot Thickens...

Well, it looks like the Ol' Greybeard's unsourced report on why Marcus Monk is no longer eligible may have been close to right.

The Meteor Should Be Crashing Into Earth Any Second Now ...

This morning has produced that rarest of events: a Wally Hall column that contains something other than unintentional comedy and incomprehensible passages.

All Hail Jodie Meeks

45 points from Jodie Meeks (a Bud Walton record) + Courtney Fortson nowhere to be found = a 16 point Kentucky win.
