Coach Petrino will be getting his first taste of Razorback football at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock on Saturday when the Razorbacks take on UL-Monroe in the new opening game of the Razorbacks 2008 football season. The game at War Memorial marks the 60th anniversary of the stadium and will feature some of the members of the 1948 Razorback football squad as honorary captains.
Jimmy Dynomite Harris has a good look back at the most significant games played at War Memorial Stadium.
(Can you smell what Coach Petrino has cooking!?)
Don't look now, but the SEC's top passing quarterback last weekend in passing yards was... Casey Dick.
My comprehensive early season Heisman trophy straw poll has Casey Dick #1 followed surprisingly close in the poll by Razorback kicker Alex Tejada.
And congratulations to Phil K for being the closest in predicting that pretend game between Arkansas and Western Illinois last weekend.
As always, a complete breakdown and preview of the upcoming game against UL-Monroe will be posted on Friday.
