On Saturday, September 18, the Arkansas Razorbacks rolled into Athens to take on the Bulldogs of the University of Georgia in a week 3 SEC match-up.

The Razorbacks, led by head Coach Bobby Petrino, would win this contest by a score of 34-27.

Arkansas went into the game ranked 12th and Georgia with no rank after a week two loss at the hands of Southeastern Conference foe South Carolina in week 2.

It was an evenly matched game, but it was the end that made it truly spectacular.

It almost seemed like Arkansas had the game at the end of the third quarter with 24-10.  But the Hogs just were in fighting form to have their first on the road win with head lead by quarterback Ryan Mallett.

With less than eight minutes on the clock, Georgia’s red-shirt freshman quarter back Aaron Murray slid in a ten yard touchdown pass to sophomore tight end Tavarres King to bring the score to 24-17.

Georgia kept trudging even when fans had already filed out of Sanford Stadium earlier in the game’s first half.

The Dawgs were able to tie the game up at 24-24 on a three yard rushing touchdown by sophomore tailback Washaun Ealey. At this point, the fans at home and those who had chosen to stay at Sanford Stadium were on the edges of their seats as Georgia was looking at a potential overtime contest.

Arkansas took control of the game with 47 seconds left and Arkansas junior quarterback Ryan Mallett took three plays to begin the first game winning drive of his career.

With 15 seconds left on the clock, Arkansas junior wide receiver Greg Childs scored the game-winning touchdown on a 40 yard pass from quarterback Ryan Mallett.

After the go-ahead drive by Arkansas, UGA tried a Hail Mary pass with five seconds left on the clock, but it would bring no positive result.

This game was Georgia’s second consecutive loss to an SEC team this season.  The Dawgs will face in-conference rivals Tennessee, Florida and Auburn in the coming weeks.

Smoker’s tea gets flamin’!

Every semester within the first couple of weeks of the year, there is an organizational fair that is held where only the recognized Greek fraternities and sororities on campus are allowed to attend. This organizational fair is called Smoker’s Tea.

This semester’s Smoker’s Tea was held on September 13 in the old gym, and those in attendance included Alpha Iota, Alpha Omega, Alpha Xi, Chi Delta Phi, Gamma Psi, Phi Alpha Phi, Phi Delta, Sigma Beta Sigma, Upsilon Delta Sigma, and Zeta Pi.

Smoker’s Tea is a way for anyone interested in Greek life to meet all the Greeks and see what each Greek has to offer. Each organization has a table and as many of their members as possible in attendance. They have baked goods, candy and other little things to give away to the interested people that come to their table. All the members that attend Smoker’s Tea for the different organizations are on hand to answer questions that potential pledges might have about them.

J.D. Umberson, a freshman business major from Gainesville said, “you learn what everyone is about and what you would get out of them.”
It is a fun way for people not in a sorority or in a fraternity to get to know each Greek; but it is also a lot of fun for the people in sororities and fraternities as well, because it promotes a sense of community.

Not only does it give potential pledges time to interact with the organizations, but it also gives the organizations time to interact with each other,” said Phi Alpha Phi member Jordan Fleming a junior musical theatre major from Marietta.

Even though the gym was really hot this year, Smoker’s Tea was fun for anyone who attended and really showed the community at YHC.
