Good, not grand, opening

Glitches abound in Smith’s winning debut

Posted: September 2, 2012 at 3:52 a.m.

Arkansas tight end Chris Gragg scores a second-quarter touchdown on a 30-yard pass from quarterback Tyler Wilson as Jacksonville State defender Rashad Smith falls behind. The touchdown pulled the Razorbacks into a 14-14 tie with the Gamecocks. Gragg finshed the game with 7 catches for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns.

John L. Smith’s debut at Arkansas turned out successful, he just wishes it had been a little smoother.
