Hogs McFadden Ready for Heisman Hype

The opening of S.E.C. Media Days down in Birmingham marks the official countdown to the Heisman for Arkansas Running Back Darrin McFadden..

McFadden comes back for his Jr. Season after finishing as Heisman Runnerup last year...

Mcfadden's been fantastic over the last 2-seasons, rushing for more than 27-hundred yards and 25-touchdowns.

The Hogs Big Mac knows the Spotlight is on HIM in 2007.

McFadden says "It's a lot of excitement for me...great feeling, great expectations.. I hope to live up this."

Hogs Head Coach Houston Nutt can't believe his good fortune to have McFadden back another year.

"We've never had a Doak Walker winner before. Never had a player get on a plane to New York as Heisman candidate before. And, don't forget.. we have Felix Jones who was a Heisman candidate before McFadden. We have a wonderful backfield."

The Hogs open their season against Troy September First.
