I know.Its been awhile.I haven’t talked about my home state Razorbacks in awhile.
Arkansas earned their first 2019 football commitment today.Following his visit,2019 Defensive Lineman,Trevor Hopper made his commitment to Arkansas.
Arkansas basketball is 20-9 (9-7) in the SEC after winning seven of their last eight games.The Razorbacks just beat Alabama on Saturday night,76-73,with Senior Guard Daryl Macon leading them in scoring.Arkansas will play SEC-leader and number twelve-ranked Auburn and Missouri to close out the season.
Thank you to ESPN’s articlehttp://www.espn.com/college-football/insider/story/_/id/22440336/georgia-bulldogs-clemson-tigers-lead-quarterback-future-power-rankings and Flemlo Raps,a youtuber who just came up with a video similar to my blog post for the post idea.
Who will win Georgia’s Quarterback battle?Will it be Jake Fromm who led Georgia from a play way to win the National Championship or the consensus number one overall player in the country,Justin Fields a dual-threat with loads of potential.I mean why redshirt a guy with Fields’s talent?Jake Fromm has proven,though,that he is a winner.He took the starting job from a former five-star in Jacob Eason and then led the team to the National Championship,and almost won it.Justin Fields is one of the best athletes at the Quarterback position that we’ve seen at the high school level.Jake Fromm was the star of the first season of “QB1 Beyond the Lights” and Fields will be the star of season two.I mean,injuries could definitely happen and we have yet to see “Spring Ball”,so my pick is Jake Fromm who is a proven winner at the collegiate level.
I know guys.I haven’t blogged about college football in a while.Remember when I said that most of my posts would be about college football?Well,that’s changed.Change is common.It’s college basketball season but I thought I do a college football blog about once a week.No more questions of the day now that I’m blogging on just one website.
Cam Akers was a highly-touted five star athlete out of Mississippi.He could play anything from QB to Running Back and even Defensive Back sometimes.His best position though was Running Back and he chose Florida State over instate Ole Miss and various other power five programs.Cam Akers and the Seminoles were National Championship contenders and ranked number three in the nation to begin the season.That soon changed after 1.Alabama blew the numen-three ranked Seminoles out,24-7.Florida State QB Deondre Francois was knocked down hard during the game resulting in his Francois’ only season action.Francois was done for the season.After the season Head Coach Jimbo Fisher left for Texas A&M.This all leads up to Cam Akers who was expected to be a superstar in his first season in Tallahassee but that didn’t happen.He rushed for 1,024 yards.He was a star not a super-star.Can he rush for 2,000 yards?With Willie Taggart at the helm as the new Head Coach I think he can.Akers has the pieces around him to do it.Akers will be an NFL prospect for the 2020 NFL draft after having rushed for over two thousand five hundred yards this season.So essentially,Is Cam Akers rushing for one hundred yards,over or under?Over.
Yesterday in college basketball,13.Kansas beat 20.West Virginia headed by a surge in the second half.3.Villanova cruised past 4.Xavier,95-79,and 14.North Carolina is playing the best basketball of any team in the country.

Cameron Shelton,a Chino Hills High School Freshman Guard at the time was a starter and had made his first move to a non-Christian school in his life.Chino Hills is a public school.Shelton started as a Freshman in the 2014-15 season.The undefeated state championship season for the Huskies was when things started to turn for the bad for Cameron Shelton.Chino Hills went 35-0 and won a California state championship headlined by the three ball boys:Lonzo,LiAngelo,and LaMelo.Shelton was the sixth man in the undefeated season but he wanted more.
Cameron Shelton decided to transfer to Damien High School.Shelton would have to travel one hour to get to school but he was avoiding the transfer rules where he would have to sit out a season.Shelton is doing great at Damien High School and will go to mid-major Northern Arizona this upcoming fall.
Today is a month before Selection Sunday and everybody knows where pretty much everybody is going to be seeded.Let’s recap the big games yesterday.
The SEC is looking like they will get eight teams in the tournament.Alabama shut down 15.Tennessee 78-50 after the Vols had beaten 24.Kentucky.8.Auburn handled Georgia,Texas A&M beat Kentucky by eleven,and Arkansas handled Vanderbilt.The eight teams in the tournament for the SEC are Kentucky,Auburn,Alabama,Arkansas,Texas A&M,Tennessee,Missouri,and Georgia if they can continue winning with two opportunities to boost their resume both times against 15.Tennessee.

Swim Sports is officially my second made up sport.This sport has not just been created by me,it is now just showing to you.This is like,Throwball.Their’s Throwball history but I didn’t show you it until just two years ago.So its like that,pretty much.

19.North Carolina snapped a three-game losing streak by blowing out Pitt led by Luke Maye’s twenty-six points and eight rebounds.
The top three teams in the country all won yesterday.
4.Duke and 19.North Carolina are ready for a clash on Thursday.
4.Duke,(18-3), lost at 2.Virginia,(20-1), 65-63 in Durham,North Carolina.This shows that Virginia is a legitimate “Final Four” threat.Virginia’s defense is the best in the country and that’s why they beat the Blue Devils.
In other ACC news,10.North Carolina lost their second straight game to NC State in OT.
In the SEC-Big 12 Challenge,Alabama beat 12.Oklahoma,Arkansas beat Oklahoma State,5.Kansas beat Texas A&M,Florida beat Baylor,14.Texas Tech beat South Carolina,Tennessee beat Iowa State,and Kentucky beat 7.West Virginia.The SEC won the challenge.Most notably,two of the nations’ top point guards,Collin Sexton and Trae Young,and Sexton and Tide held Oklahoma’s star to just seventeen points.Kentucky came back from a seventeen point deficit to defeat 7.West Virginia,83-76.Kentucky Forward Kevin Knox had a career night,propelling the ‘Cats to a victory.
LeBron James is the youngest player to score thirty-thousand points in his career.James and the Cavs aren’t playing great right now,though.They just fell to the Spurs and their record is 27-19.Make sure you tell me in the comments if you want me to do a post on the NBA Trade Deadline,because the Cavaliers will need to make some moves then.
