Hogs Insider: With Chuck Barrett&Voice of the Razorbacks, Chuck Barrett, looks ahead to today’s game at Alabama and the honor Jeff Long received in a new installment of Hogs Insider

"’It’s not even gonna be close!’ That’s what Razorback great Billy Ray Smith, Jr. recalls Lou Holtz telling the Razorbacks prior to their matchup with top-ranked Texas in 1981. Arkansas was unranked and given little chance to topple the mighty Longhorns, but Holtz, Smith, and some crazy Razorback fans were at their best that stormy Saturday, and Arkansas blew ’em out 42-11."
