Mike Irwin is the senior reporter and analyst for the Razorback Nation team. With over four decades of experience Mike's career stretches back into the Frank Broyles era which gives his reporting a knowledge and perspective that other media outlets cannot match. He has won several AP awards over the years and has reported live from three Final 4's, four College World Series, five Cotton Bowls, the Orange Bowl, numerous other bowls, NCAA basketball and baseball regionals.

Mike and his wife Mary live in Fayetteville. They have two sons, Josh and Terry, who are also Fayetteville residents along with four grandchildren; Clark, Mikaela, Athan and Ella.

In his spare time Mike likes to play golf and work on home improvement projects around the house. He spends as much time with his wife, kids and grandkids as his busy schedule allows.

Mike believes that the best part of his job is getting to talk to Razorback fans all over the country. "The passion they have for their beloved Hogs is truly remarkable," he says.
