Prior to Sunday’s SEC Tournament championship game, Arkansas’ players did some trash talking to their opponent, Kentucky. They reportedly got in the Wildcats’ faces in a Bridgestone Arena tunnel and Razorbacks’ forward Bobby Portis said being able to play UK was like getting a wish granted. The fervor Arkansas’ players have for Kentucky is a feeling that is apparently replicated by the Wildcats’ players. Following his team’s victory against the Razorbacks, Kentucky junior center Willie Cauley-Stein said “we don’t like that team,” referencing Arkansas. Wow. Willie keeping it REAL. “We don’t like that team.” Said winning title was one thing, but they just wanted to beat “that team.”— Ashley Scoby (@AshleyScoby) March 15, 2015Willie Cauley-Stein after the game re: Arkansas, “Straight up, we don’t like that team.”— Brett Dawson (@BDawsonRivals) March 15, 2015Full WCS quote on not liking “that team” pic.twitter.com/EoGtkE2VTJ— Ashley Scoby (@AshleyScoby) March 15, 2015It’s not often that you see college basketball players openly discussing their dislike for another team, but we love it.

Nemanja Matic is pleased to see Manchester United back in the winning habit, with the midfielder admitting that the club “doesn’t accept drawing or losing a game”.The Red Devils had become painfully familiar with seeing points slip through their grasp towards the end of Jose Mourinho’s reign.The Portuguese collected just one victory from his last six Premier League outings at the helm, with United slipping off the top four pace as a result.

OIe Gunnar Solskjaer has been charged with bringing about a reversal in fortune and has made a dream start to his tenure with back-to-back successes.A 5-1 mauling of Cardiff has been followed by a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Huddersfield, with Matic seeing United rediscover their spark as they endeavour to deliver the results expected of them.The Serbia international told BBC Sport after helping United to see off the Terriers at Old Trafford: “After Cardiff, we gained more confidence. It was important to win at our stadium, to bring a smile on the face of our supporters.“We made some mistakes. We need to see what we can do better. It’s a completely different atmosphere when you win games.“This club doesn’t accept drawing or losing a game. This is the way we have to try to win the next one.”Matic was the man to put United on their way to another welcome three-point haul on Boxing Day.His opening goal was his first for the Red Devils since March, with the 30-year-old one of several players to be enjoying a new lease of life under Solskjaer.He added: “It’s always important to score early if possible. After that, we have more space to play.“I’m happy with my goal.”United will be back in action on Sunday when they play host to Bournemouth, with there still an eight-point gap for them to bridge in order to return to the Champions League spots.

LINCOLN, NE – SEPTEMBER 10: A general view of Memorial Stadium during a game between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Wyoming Cowboys on September 10, 2016 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Nebraska defeated Wyoming 52-14. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)It’s been a tough season for Nebraska, highlighted by their winless record so far. However, more unfortunate news struck the Cornhuskers in the form of a huge transfer.Earlier this week, Tyjon Lindsey received his scholarship release, as the former four-star recruit is ready to transfer. Although he’s ready to start a new chapter at Oregon State, the potential-packed wideout didn’t forget to say goodbye to his supporters at Nebraska.This heartfelt message proves Lindsey will miss his time with the Cornhuskers, but he’ll embrace his new opportunity to shine on Saturdays.Thank you @HuskerFBNation and the TRUE GBR FANS who’ve shown me nothing but unconditional love and a warm welcoming when I first arrived on campus. ?The Marathon must continue… pic.twitter.com/T6SiqIBtsq— T-WAYNE (@tyjonlindsey) October 8, 2018Last season, Lindsey finished with 12 receptions for 76 yards as a freshman. In his time on the gridiron this year, he had three catches for 22 yards.The Cornhuskers will continue relying on JD Spielman and Morgan Stanley Jr. on the outside. Nonetheless, losing a gifted athlete like Lindsey isn’t ideal for Scott Frost in his first season at Nebraska.
FAYETTEVILLE, AR – SEPTEMBER 2: General view during the game between the University of Southern California Trojans and the Arkansas Razorbacks on September 2, 2006 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Southern California won 50-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)The 2018 college football season hasn’t been kind to the Arkansas Razorbacks. After opening the season with a win, the Razorbacks lost six straight games before getting back in the win column two weekends ago against Tulsa.Last weekend, another number in the loss column moved Arkansas to 2-7 on the year. If that wasn’t bad enough, the team had to play host to LSU this weekend.The Tigers enter the game as the No. 7 team in the nation and have one of the fiercest defenses in college football. That defense has been dominant tonight against the Razorbacks, who have zero points on the night.And yet again, if that wasn’t bad enough, the Razorbacks are now tackling each other on offense. On what appears to be a botched handoff, two Arkansas players ran into each other and fell down.Check it out.Oh lord Arkansas pic.twitter.com/GkoOFljjzE— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) November 11, 2018Not great.LSU leads 14-0 late in the second half.
