And Then There Were 16

Arkansas Razorback Baseball

Baseball is a team sport, but it certainly doesn't hurt to have the best player in the NCAA on your team. Arkansas was reminded of that last night as they were able to husk their way past Nebraska to advance to the NCAA Super Regionals.

  • Do-or-die: With potentially the greatest season of all time on the line, the Razorbacks came out of the pen slow, but rolled on to a spectacular 6-2 win, knocking out Nebraska in a 2-1 series.
  • Carrying the team: It was a team effort, but Kevin Kopps, with 8 strike outs in 7 scoreless innings, and Charlie Welch, who had a 3 run homer that sent Baum bonkers, certainly helped. "Heroes get remembered, legends never die"

What's next? Hogs will host NC State this weekend at Baum Stadium (schedule TBD). Woo Pig!
