Marcus Monk's Watch Continues

Razorback ExpatsSenior Analyst IFebruary 3, 2009

If nothing else, the saga of Marcus Monk has certainly been an interesting one.  He went from star football player, to injured star football player, to NFL prospect, to a guy who may join the basketball team, to a key contributor on the basketball team, to a guy who is now wearing street clothes. Officials are trying to resolve a mysterious issue about his eligibility.

It looks like the latest chapter in his Razorback career won’t be ending any time soon. John Pelphrey didn’t have any new details to reveal in a press conference yesterday.  Over at the Slophouse blog, Brandon Marcello is predicting that Monk won’t play tomorrow against Tennessee. If he’s right, that will be four straight missed games at a time when the Hogs can least afford his absence.

So, what next? The crack team of Razorback Expats investigative reporters hasn’t been able to dig anything up, but this situation is starting to have a bad Adebayo/Pate feeling to it. In the meantime, we’re encouraging fans to start a candlelight vigil outside the Arkansas athletic department until this is resolved.
