Razorback Brew 3/24: Beat LSU

Good morning! Another year, another Sweet 16 appearance for Arkansas men's basketball. A big congrats to the Hogs for their run to the second week of the NCAA Tournament.

Razorback baseball and softball have monumental weekends ahead of them, while track and field continues to reap the rewards of another Indoor title.

Now, what's all been mixed in today's Brew?

🎥 One on one with Nate Thompson
⚾ Taking on college baseball’s best
🐗 And much, much more!


Win this pitch. Entering SEC play, the Diamond Hogs are batting an impressive .309 at the plate. Maintaining that average against top-tier pitching, in hitting coach Nate Thompson's words, will be accomplished by taking it one inning, at-bat, and pitch at a time.

Hogs+ senior contributor Clay Henry visits with Thompson to chat about the team's start to the year and more as Arkansas prepares to face top-ranked LSU this weekend.


🔼 Titanic Battle. If it seems like it's been forever since Arkansas baseball has played on the road, you'd be correct. Today marks 34 days since the Diamond Hogs' last away game, and they're breaking the stretch with an elite opponent in No. 1 LSU.

The Tigers are the top-ranked college team no matter what poll you browse. They sport the same 19-2 record Arkansas has at the moment and will have ace Paul Skenes on the mound for the series opener, who is a perfect 5-0 on the year with a 0.59 ERA. He'll duel with Arkansas southpaw Hunter Hollan, who is also an undefeated 4-0 with an ERA of 2.36.

First pitch today has been moved up to 12pm due to inclement weather later this afternoon. Catch it on SEC Network Plus.

🔼 Weekend At Bogle. No. 17 Arkansas softball is coming off their first-ever series win over Alabama and will look to sustain their momentum against No. 10 Florida in a return to Bogle Park this weekend. It's the Hogs' first home series in five years against the Gators, who are looking for revenge after they were swept by Courtney Deifel's squad in 2022.

Speaking of the skipper, the first 500 fans at Bogle Park today will receive a Coach Deifel bobblehead. Tomorrow's game will feature post-game fireworks and is to be a “red out.” And if you're headed to Bogle on Sunday, bring the pup for “Bark in the Park” is back for Sunday’s series finale – all pets get in free in the Berm.

Tune in to SEC Network Plus at 6pm tonight for the marquee matchup.

🔼 Traditions Lasting. The women’s golf regular season for Arkansas concludes this weekend at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic, taking place at the University of Georgia Golf Course. The Razorbacks are far from strangers at the event with this being their 27th appearance. They will be joined by 10 top-50 programs in the field.

Arkansas will hit the links starting today through Sunday for three rounds of play.

🔼 Crowded At The Top. A title at the 2023 NCAA Indoor Championships helped Jaydon Hibbert and Carey McLeod join Ayden Owens-Delerme on the newest 2023 Bowerman watch list. Jaydon set the new collegiate record on his first and only attempt in the triple jump at the NCAA's, while Carey made his mark with a victory in the long jump.

This marks the first time the Arkansas men have had three athletes among the top 10 on a single iteration. Click here to view everything the trio has accomplished this year.


Spring forward. Winter is in the rear view mirror, but our friends at Theo's Fayetteville have the coolest new dinner menu in the Natural State.

Duck Confit Quesadilla is the crown jewel of the new Late Winter/Early Spring menu, complete with blended cheese, tamarind BBQ, crema, and pico.

Dickson Street Sliders are climbing up the charts with house ground beef tenderloin, provolone, bacon marmalade, caraway aioli, and house pickles on a brioche bun.

And the Key Lime Martini is vanilla vodka, triple sec, and a graham cracker rim for only $6.00 on Martini Night every Thursday!


Celebrate the run. Arkansas ran into a buzzsaw against UConn in the Sweet 16. But we’re tipping our caps to another run to the second weekend in the Big Dance.

And the Hog baseball team has a huge series this weekend at No. 1 LSU, and we’re getting you ready for first pitch.
