One of the cool things I found out while perusing Razorback Expats the other day was the fact (keep up the good work, guys) that Sports Illustrated has opened the vault. You can now read articles, view photos, covers, etc. of anything in the Sports Illustrated collection. For some good reading anytime, head on over there.
One of the better Razorback articles written in the past 10 years by S.I. was almost nine years ago. Unfortunately, it was written about former Razorback All-American Brandon Burlsworth two months after his tragic death. The article is outstanding, but the reason that the article was written is what still makes you shake your head in disbelief to this day. This article is fairly timely as well because Razorfest 2008 is coming up next weekend and some of the proceeds do benefit The Brandon Burlsworth Foundation. More on Razorfest next week. It was a life gone in the blink of an eye, and it doesn't seem like it's been nearly nine years either.
Have a good weekend.
