The Razorbacks opened the 2017 football season by dismantling the Florida A&M Rattlers, 49-7. The running game was on display as the Hogs rushed for 236 yards. Devwah Whaley had 63 yards on 12 carries for 5 YPC. Debuting as a true freshman, Chase Haden had 120 yards on 14 carries for an eye-popping 8.6 YPC. The defense looked much improved over the last year, tackling much better and getting a TD on an 18 yard scoop-and-score from a forced fumble.
Next, the Hogs host the TCU Horned Frogs in Fayetteville. TCU was #26 in the AP poll and #28 in the coaches poll, while the Razorbacks did not receive any votes. QB Kenny Hill returns for his senior season. Hill was inconsistent last year, mixing Heisman-quality moments with picks and missed passes. As their best player, you can be sure that containing Hill will be the Hogs’ top defensive priority. Expect the Razorback passing game to be a bit less vanilla than against Florida A&M. Offensively, the Hogs need to clean up some of the blocking whiffs and duplicate last week’s stellar rushing performance. If they can achieve these objectives, expect the Hogs to gig some Frogs.

The 2017 Paul & Susan Henderson Golf and Rally, a collaborative effort of the Greater Dallas Razorback Club (GDRC) and Arkansas Alumni Association-Dallas Chapter (DCAAA), was a blast. We had to reschedule the event due to thunderstorms – we didn’t want a golf course full of folks swinging metal lightning rods. Coach B could not make it on the rescheduled date due to his commitment to football camps – and the small matter of Mrs B being a little close to due date.
In his place Coach B sent coaches receivers coach Michael Smith and linebackers coach Vernon Hargreaves. These guys were great – very personable and really made an effort to interact with all the fans who made it to the event. The golf was a little less attended but we still were able to put 17 teams on the course. The dinner had close to 125 people in attendance and coaches were really good at talking about the team. We had several former players show up as well. Tony Bua was big hit with all who attended. Tony is a great guy, who by the way owns a roofing company in Dallas so if you need a roof let me know I can get you with him.
Coach Smith discussed the offense, and despite only having one guy back he really likes the young guys he is coaching. He says David Williams will come in and likely take the 3rd spot until the newcomers can get the playbook down especially pass pro.
Coach Hargreaves touted the changes in scheme saying it will fit the roster much better than the 4-3 did in the past.
Slim Chickens catered the event and did a fantastic job.
For everyone that showed up to play golf, enjoy BBQ, and listen to Coaches Smith and Hargreaves – thanks a million. Because of your support the GDRC was able to raise money for our donation to the Razorback Foundation in support of Razorback athletics.If you missed it this year, not to worry – we’ll be doing it again next year.
For all Hog fans in the Dallas metroplex (and those that are visiting), join us at Buffalo Wild Wings (BWW) in Addison to cheer on the Hogs on game day. The BWW managing partner is a HUGE Hog fan and the atmosphere in BWW on game day is the next best thing to being in the stands. For the latest in GDRC info, check in with us periodically
