ESPN’s Mark Schlabach at Little Rock Touchdown Club (Part 3)

Tyler Wilson

Earlier I wrote about where I think Arkansas could win a national championship with just two more wins.

Below is a portion of an article by Jim Harris of the website Arkansas 360:

AND ON BOBBY: Schlabach, on Arkansas’ coach: “I said when he was hired that Bobby Petrino would make Arkansas a contender for the national championship in three years. And hey, I’m from Atlanta and not many people there like the guy.”

BEEN THERE: Much talk and reflection among Touchdown Club hosts David Bazzel and Rex Nelson and prayer leader Gary Underwood were over Garrett Uekman’s untimely death Sunday in a University of Arkansas dormintory less than 24 hours after he’d been a part of the Hogs’ 44-17 win over Mississippi State in Little Rock.

ESPN’s Schlabach said he was encamped with the University of Miami’s football team five years ago when Bryan Pata was murdered during the season. Pata was gunned down in broad daylight outside his apartment as the season was winding down; five years later, no one has been arrested in the case.

“It’s one of the worse things that can happen,” said Schlabach, who had seen the reports the past 24 hours of the Little Rock native’s sudden passing, the cause of which hasn’t been determined. “It’s always said to see [a dream] end that way.”

As for how Arkansas’ players might react through the week and at LSU on Friday, Schlabach said, “Kids are very resilient at age 18 to 21.”
