A look back at the Friendship Bulldogs

March 22, 2013

There was a time when small schools dotted the landscape of Arkansas.
I don’t mean small like Ouachita High School, I’m talking about schools so small that it would take two of them combining to make Ouachita High.
One of those schools is Friendship High School. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, the Bulldogs were a fearsome team.
In 1938, they defeated Hot Springs, Little Rock and North Little Rock in a single season. They may have also defeated Malvern that year.

Trying to legislate college football games?

March 22, 2013

The debate has been raging for as long as I can remember, with most of the arguing coming from Jonesboro, that the University of Arkansas should play Arkansas State University in football.
I can’t say I am for or against this kind of game.
On one hand it would be kind of fun to see the two big in-state teams play each other.
On the other hand, however, there is no real reason for the game (from the Razorbacks’ standpoint).

I'm sure my busted bracket is not alone

March 22, 2013

Well that didn’t take long. The early games of the day I was looking like a genius with my picks being on the right side of all the close games.
When I suffered my first loss (Oklahoma State falling to Oregon), I felt I was still in good shape because I didn’t have the Cowboys going any further.
Then the big one happened. To be honest I never saw it coming and since I went to sleep fairly early, I never saw it period.

The Big Dance officially starts today

March 21, 2013

Well, the day is finally upon us. We have had our last chance to fill out the brackets and get in on March Madness.
If you were anything like me this year, you might as well have been blindfolded while throwing darts at different schools.
I must have filled out five or six different brackets for various contests and as I finished each one, I just stared in disbelief at what I had done.
I’ve had my troubles with brackets in the past, but that was mainly due to upsets happening that no one expected or that one rare year where there were virtually no upsets.

The making of a champion, Part 2

March 20, 2013

Malvern Lady Leopards head coach Jess Martin and assistant coach Cleveland Gordon, who has been with the team four years, have a theory with their practices.
They aim to make the practices as hard as they can so when it comes time for an actual game, the players are having fun.
That’s not to say that they don’t occasionally have fun in practice as well.
Martin praises Gordon’s role on the team whenever he gets the chance.
“He is the enforcer — the bad guy coach,” Martin said jokingly. “He has a great rapport with the kids. He works hard and does a lot of stuff that goes unnoticed.”
