Razorback Brew 1/22: One for the books

Today, the Gymbacks are back with a new record.

Good Morning. Points were as plentiful for Arkansas gymnastics, and a few Hogs punched their tickets to the NFL’s conference championship weekend.

👀 24 Hours Away. The Hogs+ original film “Walk on Air” — the story and aftermath of Michael Qualls’ incredible buzzer-beating dunk vs. Kentucky — debuts tomorrow on Hogs+. Click here to watch the trailer.

Now, what else is in store for today’s Brew?

🎥 Face-to-Face with Mr. Walk on Air
🎾 Sweeps at home
🐗 And so much more! 


Mr. Walk on Air. Fan favorite & SportsCenter top 10 regular Michael Qualls sits down to tell his story, reflect on his favorite memories as a Razorback, and update us on where he's at now. All while celebrating the 10th anniversary of his career-defining buzzer-beating dunk against Kentucky.


Head Hog Eric Musselman and host Chuck Barrett discuss the Razorbacks thrilling last second 78-77 win over Texas A&M, in which Tramon Mark finished with 35 points and hit the game-winning shot. They also break down the 77-64 home loss to South Carolina from Saturday and take a look at the week ahead.


🔺 One For The Books. History was made Friday evening as the No. 4 Arkansas gymnastics team set a new program high score of 197.525 in their top five match-up against No. 3 Alabama. The Gymbacks and Crimson Tide ended up matching scores in what resulted in a tie in Tuscaloosa.

Arkansas did not score lower than 49.300 in any of the four events and registered seven scores of 9.900 or higher on the night, including the vault shown below from Leah Smith.

The Gymbacks return home for an SEC dual against Auburn this Friday. The meet will begin at 6:45pm at Barnhill Arena and will be streamed live on SEC Network Plus. The contest is the first-ever Compete for a Cause Meet for Arkansas, in which the team and fans are encouraged to come dressed in colors that show support for or recognize causes close to their hearts.

🔺 GameDay Ready. All eyes will be inside Bud Walton Arena when Arkansas men’s basketball hosts Kentucky this Saturday. ESPN’s College GameDay show is coming to BWA for the first time ever to highlight the Hogs’ matchup against the Wildcats later that same day at 5pm. Check out the announcement video here.

🔺 All That Racket. The Arkansas women’s tennis team completed two sweeps it their doubleheader against Bradley on Saturday at Billingsley. The Razorbacks took the early lead with graduate Kelly Keller and sophomore Anet Koskel teaming up for a doubles sweep to claim the first point, while seniors Morgan Cross and Indianna Spink cruised to a 6-1 victory in the top spot. Arkansas will be in Ann Arbor, MI this Friday to take on Purdue at the ITA Kickoff Weekend.

🔺 Undefeated Lanes. Seniors for the Arkansas swim team fittingly had a dominant Senior Day by accounting for five individual event wins as well as being part of two winning relays in the Razorbacks’ 151-103 victory over Vanderbilt. Arkansas finished first in all fourteen events in its penultimate meet before next month’s SEC Championships.

🔺 Big Play Dre. Former Arkansas linebacker Dre Greenlaw had not one, but TWO interceptions against the Green Bay Packers during Saturday’s Divisional Round win for the San Francisco 49ers. His second INT on Packers quarterback Jordan Love in the final minute of the game clinched back-to-back NFC Championship game berths for the Niners. Greenlaw and San Francisco will host fellow former Hogs Frank Ragnow and Dan Skipper of the Detroit Lions this upcoming Sunday.

Greenlaw was built for moments like this. Hear about his faith in tough times, the decision to choose Arkansas over playing for father's team, and everything else that led to this moment in this episode of the Hog Pod.


Regroup and rebound. It was a tough weekend for both Hog hoops teams—we’ll discuss how they can bounce back. Plus, Arkansas gymnastics returns to Fayetteville after setting a new program record!
