About HogBlogger

Former "money man" and graduate of the University of Arkansas. Was watching the "Game of the Century" before TipsterHog was even born. HogBlogger would be glad to talk to you about any Razorback player from Bill Montgomery to Joe Ferguson to Darren McFadden.

The Razorback football program has definitely stepped it up to become part of the national conversation. Now the Hogs probably have as far to go as they have come.

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. Of course, you need to be pretty good to get to the point where luck can help you out.
