Arkansas Razorbacks podcast: Hiring an ‘Arkansas person’ as AD

Arkansas Razorbacks podcast: Hiring an ‘Arkansas person’ as AD

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Welcome to SEC Country’s  daily Arkansas Borderline Erotic podcast, the most-listened-to Razorbacks podcast in the country. In this episode, John Nabors is joined by Eric Bolin as they discuss what direction Arkansas should go when looking for a new athletic director. SEC Country launched the Borderline Erotic Podcast on Aug. 29, 2016. It is named after the colorful way coach Bret Bielema  described how he felt after Arkansas defeated Texas in the 2014 Texas Bowl. Here is a rundown of some of the topics discussed in the 305th episode of the Borderline Erotic Podcast: Arkansas looking for an ‘Arkansas’ guy Nabors started the podcast with Bolin discussing how the Razorbacks should handle the hiring of their next athletic director. Former AD Jeff Long did a lot of things for the university that were extremely positive. But many people never warmed up to Long because he wasn’t an “Arkansas guy.” It seems odd for those outside the state, but having a leader with Arkansas ties has its benefits. The Hogs need someone who can understand what this state is all about and the culture it provides. Arkansas is an extremely unique and profitable state where people across all four corners share a passion for their Razorbacks. Whoever the chancellor decides to hire, the new athletic director will have their hands full in the early going. Nonsense: Kevin Sumlin out at Texas A&M In the nonsensical part of the podcast, Nabors brings up the nonsensical story of Kevin Sumlin reportedly being fired from Texas A&M.

Tennessee basketball vs. Purdue: Time, TV channel, how to watch online

Tennessee basketball vs. Purdue: Time, TV channel, how to watch online

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee has yet to be tested this season, but that will quickly change Wednesday. The Vols kick off the Battle 4 Atlantis at noon ET against No. 18 Purdue. Tennessee won its first two games against Presbyterian and High Point by an average of 33 points. The defense has been stellar, especially in the first half against the lesser opponents. The storyline will be if the defensive system can stress a solid team such as Purdue enough for the upset. The game will serve as a good early barometer of where the team actually stands. RELATED:  Can better Tennessee defense lead Vols to NCAA Tournament? The Vols have looked better than their predicted 13th-place finish in the SEC. This will be the platform to prove just how good Tennessee can be this season. The goal of the team is to come back with the hardware from a tournament victory. Grabbing a solid RPI win in November to help bolster the tournament résumé come March wouldn’t hurt, either. Tennessee-Purdue basketball: Game info, details Time: Tip-off is at noon ET on Wednesday, Nov. 22. Location: Imperial Arena, Paradise Island, Bahamas. How can I watch the game? The game can be watched on ESPN2. How can I live stream the game? The game can be seen on the WatchESPN app. (Cable or satellite subscription required.) How can I listen to the game? The game will air on the Vol Sports Network. Check local listings. Projected starting lineup: Tennessee basketball Point guard: Sophomore Jordan Bone Shooting guard: Sophomore Jordan Bowden Small forward: Junior Admiral Schofield Power forward: Sophomore Grant Williams Power Forward: Junior Kyle Alexander What’s next for Tennessee? Win or lose, Tennessee is guaranteed three games in the preseason tournament. Depending on how the Vols do, they will face either Villanova or Western Kentucky on Thursday.

What the Kevin Sumlin rumors might mean for LSU this Saturday

What the Kevin Sumlin rumors might mean for LSU this Saturday

LSU football is in the news every day, and  the Bayou Bengal Briefing is here to keep you updated with the latest headlines five mornings a week. Join us every Monday through Friday for the biggest news on Tigers football, recruiting, baseball and more. Enjoy! Deja vu all over again LSU faces Texas A&M this Saturday, a team that may or may not be in crisis mode. Reports from the Houston Chronicle surfaced Tuesday afternoon saying Texas A&M plans to part ways with coach Kevin Sumlin after the LSU game. If this sounds familiar, it’s because it is. In 2015, similar rumors swirled about then LSU coach Les Miles heading into the matchup versus A&M. Last year, interim coach Ed Orgeron was working for his job versus the Aggies. Now the Aggies’ coach is in the position Miles and Orgeron were in. And people say this isn’t a rivalry game … So what does this mean for LSU? Well, nothing good. If you thought Tennessee was energized playing LSU with an interim coach, imagine how energized A&M will be playing with Sumlin’s job at stake. Remember: LSU saved Miles’ job with an impassioned win over Texas A&M. Well, at least for another 10 months. Does this guarantee an A&M victory? Of course not. There’s a reason LSU is favored to win by more than 10 points. Throw in the fact that it’s senior night and LSU is playing for a 9-win season and you have more than enough reason for LSU to play passionately as well. But it’s worth mentioning that Texas A&M’s players are going to be fired up. More than usual. And that could create for a pretty darn good football game. Checking in with the CFP The latest edition of the College Football Playoff standings were released Tuesday, with LSU slotting in at No. 18. That ranks LSU fifth among SEC schools, behind No. 1 Alabama, No. 6 Auburn, No. 7 Georgia and No. 14 Mississippi State. Only Mississippi State and No. 16 Michigan State rank ahead of LSU among three-loss teams. It wouldn’t be absurd to see LSU vault a few spots higher with a win over Texas A&M. Auburn and Alabama play this Saturday, as do No. 13 Washington State and No. 17 Washington. On top of that, No. 8 Notre Dame plays No. 21 Stanford and No. 3 Clemson plays No. 24 South Carolina. There are plenty of ranked matchups that can allow for LSU to climb up the ranks, provided the right teams win. An Auburn win over Alabama makes things particularly interesting for LSU, being that LSU defeated Auburn. There isn’t a way LSU can break into the Top 4. That’s out of the question. But sliding into the Top 12? It’s not impossible, believe it or not. Injury report As of Tuesday, here is a list of players who should be considered questionable for Saturday versus Texas A&M: Edge rusher Arden Key was absent from practice Tuesday. He made an appearance Monday wearing a chunky brace on his right knee. Left tackle K.J. Malone was dressed out but not fully participant Tuesday. He was wearing a non-contact gold jersey and sat out for most of the individual and position drills. Outside linebacker Corey Thompson, edge rusher K’Lavon Chaisson, linebacker Donnie Alexander and fullback Tory Carter also wore gold jerseys. Good stories you should read In case you missed them, here are two cool stories from SEC Country Tuesday: Alex Hickey spoke to die-hard LSU superfan and Ed Orgeron Radio Show fan favorite “ Evil Twin” about what compels him to be the star of every radio show. It’s a really cool read you won’t want to miss. Defensive end Christian LaCouture is preparing for his second senior day. In two years. That’s gotta be weird, right? In LSU basketball news After surprising the basketball world with a 77-75 win over Michigan Monday night, Will Wade’s LSU basketball team fell to No. 13 Notre Dame 92-53  Tuesday. The loss knocks LSU into the consolation game of the Maui Invitational Wednesday versus Marquette. That game will be played at 7 p.m. CT Wednesday and broadcast on ESPN2. What’s up with the ‘croots? SEC Country’s LSU recruiting guru Sam Spiegelman is an indispensable resource this time of year. With the early signing period fast approaching, not following Sam on Twitter is willfully foolish. So fix that by clicking here. And in case you need further convincing, here are some stories you might’ve missed from Sam this week: Ranking Louisiana’s top 30 prospects for the Class of 2018 4-star WR Kenan Jones updates his commitment status 4-star WR Devonta Jason scheduled an official visit to Baton Rouge Why an SEC rival is beating out the Tigers for 4-star CB Devin Bush Wednesday in made-up holidays For whatever reason, on the day before Thanksgiving we celebrate “ National Jukebox Day.” Which is a great holiday. Jukeboxes are awesome. So I’m going to tell my favorite story involving a jukebox. A few years ago, I was in Jacksonville on New Year’s Eve to cover the Taxslayer Bowl. Around 11 p.m., I walked into a Waffle House outside my hotel to grab a quick bite before the new year was upon us. Some guy walked in gleefully holding three dollar bills and asked the woman behind the counter “How many times can I play that Drake song?” The answer is 15. With three dollars, you can play Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Goming Home” 15 times at a Waffle House. So as I ate my meal, I heard this song. As many times as it took me to finish eating. Enjoy.

Alabama has time and the No. 1 spot on its side The latest rankings keep the Tide in prime position for the playoff, even if they were to lose to No. 6 Auburn in the Iron Bowl. Miami improves to No. 2, but the options are dwindling for two-loss teams such as Ohio State, USC and TCU.
