FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Welcome to SEC Country’s daily Arkansas Razorbacks podcast. On this episode, we talked about the upcoming NBA decisions for Arkansas basketball players Daryl Macon and Jaylen Barford, Arkansas baseball and more.
SEC Country launched the Borderline Erotic Podcast on Aug. 29, 2016. It is named after the colorful way Arkansas coach Bret Bielema described how he felt after beating Texas in the 2014 Texas Bowl.
Here is a quick rundown on some of the topics we discuss on this, the 147th episode of the Borderline Erotic Podcast.
Macon/Barford decisions looming
Trent Shadid was joined on this episode by friend of the pod John Nabors. The guys open by discussing the ongoing drama surrounding Daryl Macon and Jaylen Barford. Will those guys return to the Arkansas basketball program for the 2017-18 season or enter the NBA Draft? The Razorbacks are, obviously, hoping to have those guys back but an opportunity to begin their professional careers could be too enticing.
Knight on Golden Spikes watch list
Next, Trent and John talked about the Wednesday news that Arkansas ace pitcher Blaine Knight was named to the Golden Spikes Award midseason watch list. Knight has been unbelievable for the Arkansas baseball team in 2017 with a 5-1 record and 54 strikeouts to just 5 walks.
That led into a broader discussion about the Arkansas baseball season so far. The Razorbacks are 26-8 overall and 8-4 in SEC play entering this weekend’s home series against Georgia.
Trent then touched on some football recruiting. The Razorbacks are hosting several recruits from Texas this weekend. It will certainly be important moving forward for Arkansas to sign a few more guys from the Lone Star State.
