    All I can say is Amen to the last two paragraphs. I am not sure how he did it, but at the end of the game Pat Bradley always had around 15 points.

    Most of the wounds were self-inflicted. Both he and Eddie Sutton took the program to a very high level. However, whenever you have a "chip" on your shoulder sometimes you cannot see the forest for the trees. Unlike the programs at Duke, North Carolina UCLA, where the coaches built and left strong follow-ups Arkansas was left a garbage pile, that of today has still not recovered. An interesting legacy but not what it could bave been.

    One thing Coach Richardson did and did better than anyone else was motivate his teams! They played hard as hell!! His players took charges every game. Keith Wilson, Corey Beck, Arlyn Boweres, and Clint McDaniels took charges almost every game. I still think it is incredible how the 94-95 teams went back to back final fours and won one of them with only one player that ended up sticking in the NBA.
