Razorback Brew 3/31: Enter With Caution

Today, the Diamond Hogs look for their 16th-straight home win.

Good morning. Last night, we were reminded that anything can happen in March. Watch the Hogs+ documentary "Do You Believe In Fairytales?" on-demand on HogsPlus.com.

Arkansas track and field also refreshed us on its continued dominance down in Texas. We’ll dive into that and more to start your weekend.

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

🎥 Party like it’s 1998!
 ⚾️ Hogs welcome the Tide
🐗 And much, much more!


Anybody can beat anybody. 25 years ago, Arkansas women’s basketball embodied those words to the fullest.

The Hogs+ documentary “Do You Believe in Fairy Tales” tells the incredible story of the 1997-98 Razorback women’s basketball team. Hear interviews from Christy Smith and Wendi Willits, head coach Gary Blair, assistant coaches Amber Shirey and Vic Schaefer and more as they reminisce on making the Final Four as a 9-seed.

So sit back, grab some popcorn, and relive the fairytale that was Arkansas’ run in the 1998 NCAA Tournament.

🔺 Enter With Caution. Two 20-win ball clubs are facing off today at Baum-Walker Stadium as No. 6 Arkansas hosts Alabama for a weekend series in Fayetteville.

It’s been brutal for visitors coming to Baum-Walker recently. The Razorbacks are riding a 15-game home winning streak and are 18-1 overall on The Hill. Southpaw Hunter Holland and his perfect 4-0 record will be on the mound first as Arkansas goes for its 16th-straight victory in front of the home crowd and win No. 22 overall.

First pitch in the three-game series is scheduled for 6:30pm tonight on SEC Network Plus.

🔺 Cardinal Crusade. Arkansas got itself a nice win Thursday at the Texas Relays as Mackenzie Hayward claimed victory in the pole vault with fellow Razorback Bailee McCorkle finishing fourth. Mackenzie hit her winning height of 13-7.25 (4.15) last year and was good enough for sixth place. Now, she’s the first Razorback to win at the Texas Relays in eight years.

Today begins the illustrious Stanford Invitational as the rest of Arkansas track and field begins its outdoor season. A plethora of Razorbacks including Bowerman watch list icons Ayden Owens-Delerme and Jacob McLeod, and Arkansas shot put record holder Jordan West will be out west against top-tier competition. Click here for a full run down of the weekend schedule.

🔺 Above The Cut. After an even-par round of 72, future Razorback women’s golfer Maria José Marin's made the cut at The Augusta National Women’s Amateur. The first-ever South American to play the esteemed course, Maria remains one of just 13 golfers to be under par through two rounds as the field decreases to 36 for the weekend.

🔺 Abnormal In Norman. The Arkansas Gymbacks ended their season on a high note by posting a 197.275 at the NCAA regionals, the program’s best-ever regional score. In addition to the new best team score in Norman, OK, Arkansas also had a new regional floor high of 49.500 with help from freshman Frankie Price, who ended up tying for first in the event with a score of 9.950. Graduate transfer Norah Flatley competed all-around and posted a score of 39.525, second-best in the session and third-best on the day. Norah’s mark of 9.950 on beam was the highest of the evening session and tied for second across both semifinals.

Check out the full results from the NCAA regionals here.

🔺 Hogs vs. Dogs. No. 11 Arkansas softball will look for its 10th consecutive SEC road series victory as they take on Mississippi State in Starkville this weekend. The Hogs have won two-consecutive SEC series against top-15 teams. Hail State may be outside of the polls, but they’re tried and tested. The Bulldogs are 11-4 at home, and will start three hitters who all have at least five home runs, 25 RBIs, and are batting at least .310.

First pitch at Nusz Park today is at 4pm on SEC Network Plus.


Happy days are filled with happy hours. Having a fun-filled and delicious dining experience isn't complicated. Keep it simple with a few friends after work with our friends at Theo's Fayetteville with dishes like Loaded Cheese Fries complete with house cheese, hand cut fries, pickled Anaheim peppers, bacon, scallions, and garlic aioli.

Plus, warmer weather means a brand new late winter/early spring dinner menu—plus Martini Night every Thursday!

Don't make it too hard on yourself. We'll see you at the table.


Grinding away. After a big series win over Florida, Q and Z catch up with Arkansas softball coach Courtney Deifel as the Hogs head to Mississippi State for another SEC series.
