    You probably don't know Henry Swann. He's based out of Mobile, Ala., and works in hotel construction. Chances are, you are familiar with his alter ego, the fictional character Alabama Tom.

Arkansas Preview

Returning Starters: 12

Offense: 7

Defense: 4

Pros - Slow and steady wins the race...well at least that's what Arkansas fans are hoping for . Bret Bielema hit the reset button, and is trying to completely change and rebuild the Hogs. He will have one of the top running games in the SEC, and I think from top to bottom they improve slightly in year two.

Cons - Lack of playmakers. QB, Brandon Allen, has struggled to move the chains... making the team one dimensional.

Breakdown:

Aug. 30th at Auburn - Loss

Sept. 6th vs. Nicholls State - Win

Sept. 13th at Texas Tech - Swing Game

Sept. 20th vs. Northern Illinois - Swing Game

Sept. 27th vs. Texas A&M - Swing Game

Oct. 11th vs. Alabama - Loss

Oct. 18th vs. Georgia - Loss

Oct. 25th vs. UAB - Win

Nov. 1st at Mississippi State - Swing Game

Nov. 15th vs. LSU - Lose

Nov. 22nd vs. Ole Miss - Loss

Nov. 29th at Missouri - Loss

Last season, Arkansas won 3 games... I think they top that in 2014, but I don't see them doubling their wins. I think the Razorbacks are looking at a 4 or 5 win season, but that will depend on them beating Texas Tech and NIU. Maybe the biggest question is... will they win an SEC game this season?
