(Fayetteville,AR) Yes, Arkansas won big. BUT! Where is the passing game? Tyler Wilson throws a pick early in the game and they don't call a pass play the rest of the game? What will happen when the Razorbacks go on the road and cannot move the football on the ground or if they had a large deficit to overcome? I understand a win is a win, but Arkansas is getting by only because of the run game.

On the other side of the ball, the defense played exceptional getting three interceptions and a sack. It's hard to say anything bad about the defense right now. Let's hope they can continue to play tough and physical when they are on the field more. Rutgers only had the ball for 4:27. Some would say all that matters is the W, but a storm is coming and will the Hogs survive.

(Fayetteville,AR) The most shocking development in this young season is not the major injury to Matt Barkley (partially torn ACL - 7 weeks), but the fact the mighty Alabama Crimson Tide are 1-2. The Tide was up 24-21 in the 4th quarter on Michigan and let the lead slip, losing 35-24. They bounced back to clobber Western Kentucky (0-3), 48-7. But then, go to D.W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium and get absolutely demolished. Arkansas was in control the whole game. "I couldn't believe the holes that were open. It seemed like they (Alabama) were blitzing every play and somehow we would block it just right and myself, KD or DJ would break a big one," senior fullback Kiero Small said.

The three turnovers were drive killers with one pass in particular being intercepted as Alabama was moving the ball with force. It was obvious Coach Jenkins wanted to keep the ball out of the hands of the Crimson Tide offense. The Hogs milked the clock and ran the ball creating the bleak situation that the Tide found themselves in going into the 4th quarter. "It feels really good to finally have us beat the Nick Saban coached Alabama team. We cannot stand that school and finally are making this a decent rivalry instead of being Bama's doormat," Coach Jenkins chuckling with ESPN.

(Jonesboro,AR) Arkansas State's inability to convert on third down may not have been the sole reason they lost, but it didn't help (3-12). The Hogs defense seemed to be all over the field as they intercepted Ryan Aplin three times. Neither team could punch it in the end zone consistently as there were empty red zone trips.

Dennis Johnson had a great game on the ground going over 100 yards. Surprising senior fullback, Keiro Small is contributing huge plays, adding 2 touchdowns. "We have got to get more pressure on the quarterback. We only came up with a couple sacks this week against a team that is no where near the talent level of the Alabama's and LSU's," comments from Arkansas coach Von Jenkins. Arkansas takes an Alabama team next week that lost to Michigan in the opening week.

"The 1996 season is underway here in Tampa Bay. Bradley wins the draw back, to Hamrlik, passes to Klima. Klima enters the zone, meets the defense then retreats to center ice and drops it to Shaw. Shaw passes it up to Selivanov at the blue line, Alexander gets a step on the defenseman cuts toward the net, backhand, GOAL!!!! Alexander Selivanov starts out the season with a goal!! 45 seconds into the season Lightning lead 1-0."
That's how the season would start for the Lightning, Selivanov assisted by David Shaw and Petr Klima. Later in the Period, the Isles would strike back. "Tampa on the pp for the first time this seaon, Bradley is out to take the draw and drops it back to Hamrlik. Hamrlik shoots save made and kicked out to Petr Klima. Klima gets it stolen by Scott Lachance who passes it to Muller. Muller clears it and it banks off the boards in on Puppa. Puppa, turns and kicks it in! Goal Islanders. It's tied 1-1" Definitely not Puppa's finest moment as the puck takes a direct bounce off the boards behind him and in.
The second period was filled with action, mostly for the Lightning as it started out with Rob Zamuner fighting with Steve Thomas. "Uh OH, here we go, It's Robbie Zamuner and Steve Thomas. Zamuner gets a couple of punches in as Thomas counters with 2 big jabs to Zamuner. Zamuner tugging on the jersey, levels Thomas with a couple of big punches! Zamuner wins this one easily and David Ortega of Ft. Myers wins a 20 dollar gift certificate from Hooters in our knock em out, grab a drink promotion congrats Mr. Ortega."
Tampa Bay would go on to score 3 goals in a span of 30 seconds during Zamuner's 5 minute major. Poulin scored on a nice pass by Chris Gratton. Selivanov got his second assisted by Bradley and Hamrlik. Capping off the second period scoring Bradley scored on a backhand assisted by Hamrlik and Puppa.
Tampa Bay clamped it down on defense in the third as Puppa played solid throughout the period. However, that didn't stop Steve Thomas from scoring, with an assist by Kirk Muller 6 minutes into the period. Selivanov had a chance at the hat trick with 5 seconds in the period but was denied on a slapshot. That's it from us here in Tampa as the Lightning win 4-2. Join us October 4th as your Lightning take on the Quebec Nordiques in the Great White North!

I did this as a read along so that people that wanted to read could instead of cluttering up my dynasty thread on the main board. So here we go!

August 25 1995...

It's time for a new season Lightning fans! Time for a new start from our team in Tampa. The 1995 campaign was one for hockey fans to forget, especially us down here in Lightning Land. As the NHL tries to put away memories of the lockout Tampa Bay is putting forth a huge effort to erase their last place finish. A lot of credit must be given to coach Terry Crisp and GM/President Phil Esposito on how far this expansion team has come in such a few years but neither are happy with last season's finish. Esposito is quoted as saying, "Last season was disastrous, we've made strides this offseason to make sure it doesn't happen. We've gotten more skill in the forward position and we are going to have very healthy competition for playing time."
That is very true as Esposito has brought in players such as Brian Bellows and Patrick Poulin to help out the younger players. Tampa Bay is also looking for a breakout year from Alexander Selivanov. The talented winger will be playing alongside team MVP Brian Bradley. Bradley says he's excited to see Selivanov grow as a player. "He's really got a nice scoring touch and is developing his all around game to help take some pressure off me offensively."
Defensively might be where this team struggles. Their top 6 defensemen are Roman Hamrlik, Bill Houlder, Cory Cross and whoever steps up. Hamrlik is starting to hit his young stride in the NHL and proving that he was worthy of being the 1st draft pick in franchise history.
Goalies should be solid this year with Daren Puppa returning to the keep pucks out. The veteran net minder is poised for a big year. "You know I've really trained hard this year and I think we're gonna have a good year. We picked ourselves up a solid backup and he's gonna relieve me some, just not too much." Daren is of course talking about Jeff Reese, picked up in a trade from Hartford. J.C. Bergeron is also there battling for the backup role.

It should be a fun season Lightning fans, and I expect to see everyone out at the Thunderdome on the 1st as your lightning take on the New York Islanders. Pregrame starts at 630 here on the Lightning Radio Network, followed by the game at 7. This is Bob Evans wrapping up this preseason look at the Tampa Bay Lightning.

I may have made some bad trades, but I felt like a major roster movement was required.

To Tampa Bay:
Trevor Daley
Henrik Zetterberg
John Scott

To Columbus:
Trent Lofthouse
2017 3rd round pick

Analysis: I felt like Matt Finn was ready to step in to the top four, so Daley became expendable. Zetterberg was aging and either Huberdeau of Lofthouse should be able to anchor my new first line.

To Edmonton:
Marian Gaborik

To Columbus:
Jeff Skinner

Analysis: This trade was mostly about shaving cap space and getting younger.

To Washington:
Alexander Ovechkin

To Columbus:
Evander Kane
Dennis Wideman
2017 1st round pick
2017 2nd round pick
2018 3rd round pick

Analysis: I'm gonna be honest, I really don't know why I did this. Most likely because Ovechkin's contract was coming off next year and I was worried I wouldn't be able to resign him. In return I got a real solid left winger, a bounty of draft picks and Wideman, who was thrown in as salary.

To San Jose:
Dennis Wideman

To Columbus:
2017 1st round pick
2017 5th round pick
2017 6th round pick
2017 7th round pick

Analysis: Because Wideman wasn't needed, I traded him to a team that needed a defenseman. In return I got four more draft picks, although the last three were mostly for maximizing return, but they can prove valuable, as my 6th round pick in 2014 has blossomed into a prime defensive prospect.

Free Agents:
Ian White- To back my powerplay
Martin Erat- To provide some fourth line scoring

Another reason is to get my team to cap floor.

(Lawrence,KS) Both teams had early season jitters as neither one could convert on a third down with any consistency. The downfall of Kansas was all the attempted options that were stuffed. The Arkansas defense also had several balls bounce out of their hands.

Offensively, Knile Davis looked very rusty as he could not get anything going. Dennis Johnson could not stop fumbling the ball with Kansas recovering one. Tyler Wilson made a couple bad reads and paid the price with two interceptions on throws that should have never happened. This was a decent win, but there is a lot of room for this team to grow and improve.

Game 92 vs. LAA

This game was similar to that phrase you always see on a side-view mirror: things are closer than they appear.

The Tigers had to worry when the Angels came within one after the 6th. They responded, however, in the 7th, when Mark Trumbo homered and Geovany Soto had an RBI single.

The 9th was treacherous from Valverde. He loaded the bases, but no runs scored. Even if there is a save situation, he won't be used. Valverde threw 20 pitches.

Game 91 vs. LAA

Tensions escalated early in this one. Andre Ethier tripled in his 1st at bat; however, the next batter, Adam Jones, was likely intentionally hit in the shoulder.

In the top of the 2nd, Kendry Morales was plunked as well. The Angels ended the inning with a run on a sacrifice fly.

The Tigers continued to score in the second, and Andre Ethier was hit in his arm. That prompted a warning, but the struggling Ervin Santana was ejected.

Long reliever Danys Dallimore saved the Angels' pen by going 6 and 1/3 innings afterward.

Ricky Romero turned in another nice performance; I think he's making the turnaround.

Starting tonight, a new dynasty will be created with Von Jenkins coaching at Arkansas and Colossus Crunch at Missouri. Jenkins and Crunch have quite the history as both have spoiled the other one's season: Crunch, a former assistant at Western Kentucky and Jenkins former assistant with Middle Tennessee State.

With the unexpected departure of Bobby Petrino and Gary Pinkel testing the waters in the NFL, the challenges for Jenkins and Crunch are enormous with already established programs. Will Arkansas finally nail the SEC title? Can Mizzou show that they belong in the nation's best conference? The first meeting between the Tigers and Hogs was back in 1908 with Mizzou leading the series, 3-2. The third win by Mizzou was an absolute blowout in the 2008 Cotton Bowl, 38-7.

Cincinnati, OH--- It only took one inning for the Reds to top off the Tigers for the second consecutive days. After trailing 4-0 in the 2nd inning, the Reds came back with a little offensive of their own. Drew Smyly ( 6.92, 4-5) struck out the first 3 of the four batters he faced but in the 2nd, Cincinnati made him pay; touching him up for 11 runs on 9 hits in just 1.1 innings." I've never seen anything like it," said Dusty Baker following the 11-4 win on Saturday. The Reds have only scored double digit runs twice in the 2012 season, both coming against St. Louis on April 9th and 10th. "To score that many runs after they put up 4 on us early was huge," said Jay Bruce who connected on a grand slam in the 2nd inning of the Reds win. Homer Bailey couldn't find his stuff in the 2nd and gave up 4 runs on 5 hits in the 2nd, and it looked like it was going to be a bullpen game for the Reds. Bailey managed to get through the 6th, thanks to the Reds productive offense. Justin Verlander ( 3.28, 5-5) will try to stop the Reds offense on Sunday, as the Tigers look to avoid the sweep. Johnny Cueto ( 2.56, 3-4) will take the mound as he looks to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Pittsburgh in his last outing. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10, first 10,000 fans will receive a Brandon Phillips bobble-head..

(Seattle,WA) Justin Verlander had the game under continue until the 5th inning. Everything spiraled out of control when Jack Wilson was hit by a pitch with Joel Zumaya on the mound. Wilson looked as if he was going to charge Zumaya and the benches of both teams were prepared to stampede the field. Luckily, Wilson chose the right thing and just walked to first. "Zumaya is a dirty player. I know it for a fact. He was purposely trying to send a message to me and my teammates. As far as I'm concerned all the Tigers are scum," Jack Wilson told reporters. The last game of their series should be interesting as tempers are flaring up and emotions let go.
