With your bacon, have some Hogs for Breakfast. It’s SEC Country’s weekday column and roundup on all things Arkansas. Opinion, numbers, inane babble and more! And now with ironic exclamation points! There is no place like it on the web.

The 2018 commitments rolling in

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema doesn’t anticipate the Class of 2018 being a large one. The Razorbacks don’t have a lot of seniors they’ll be losing.

But when you want to be a Hog, you call ’em. John Mincey did on Tuesday. Mincey, a 3-star defensive lineman from Georgia, announced on Twitter after visiting campus.

A young group of linebackers

Linebackers were a problem for Arkansas last year. The Razorbacks just didn’t have any. Now with a 3-4 defense, they’ll have to find some.

SEC Country’s complete roster preview continued Tuesday ahead of fall camp with a look at the inside linebacking unit. It’s interesting, to say the least.

OLBs pass rushers? Converted DEs?

State-wide columnist Nate Allen has an interesting piece on just what exactly those outside linebackers in Paul Rhoads’ new 3-4 alignment will be doing.

Best tennis player in Arkansas history dies

Peter Doohan, a former Razorbacks tennis star, died Friday after a long battle against ALS. Doohan upset defending two-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker in the second round of the 1987 major. Doohan, 56, was in his native Australia when he died. He had spent time as the tennis pro in Fort Smith, Ark., just down the road from Fayetteville, earlier in his life.

Someday we’ll stop killing ourselves playing this game

Direct from the story:

A neuropathologist has examined the brains of 111 N.F.L. players — and 110 were found to have C.T.E., the degenerative disease linked to repeated blows to the head.

One of them was former Arkansas standout Ronnie Caveness, who died in 2014. It’s a fascinating and horrifying study in the New York Times.

Tweets and the like

The answer is Mississippi State or South Carolina.

Probably a good call here, Trent. Thankfully for me, I have always been of the opinion Nutt was a better coach at Arkansas than he got credit for. *ducks for cover*
