Monday News and Notes

The Razorbacks' 19th win of the year ties a record for first year head coach John Pelphrey. The win ties him with the legendary Eugene Lambert (1942-43) for the most wins ever by a first year Razorback head coach. Eugene busted off 78 more wins (1942-49) for his alma mater before leaving the U of A to coach at Memphis (1951-56) and then at Alabama (1956-60).

I present to you (courtesy of the Eugene Lambert overall record chart! You can thank me later.

Arkansas' signee Rotnei Clarke broke the all-time scoring record in the state of Oklahoma on Saturday night as 3A's #1 Verdigris advanced to the state tournament. Clarke, who averages 41.1 ppg, broke the state record that had stood for 19 years held by Maud's Ty Harmon.

The Razorback baseball team only made it six games into the new season before blowing their stack and blowing their undefeated season. Coach Dave Van Horn was ejected as he went nose to nose with the first base linesman and Texas A&M won 15-7. The Hogs bounced back the next day beating The Ohio State University (also known as the 13th best team in the SEC) 8-6 and are now 6-1. The Hogs begin a five game homestand on Tuesday weather-permitting, and right now we're looking at a possibility of four inches of snow tonight.
