if you throw it slightly forward, almost sideways, and it is deflected and hits the ground behind the QB, is it a fumble? Or does it warrant a review?

Not a fumble. Incomplete pass. But review may be needed to ensure forward pass was initiated.

It depends on whether it helps a ranked SEC team survive against an Arkansas team or not.

It’s the trajectory of the pass before it is touched by anyone other than the QB. So, the tip shouldn’t affect it one way or the other. It if was forward leaving the QB’s hand, it’s a forward pass - period.
