Naming things after directions is sooooo yesterday and dated.  Take a page from the real estate developers like Lindsey and jazz it up with some bullshit "homage to history".  For example, instead of Victory Village South, it should named The Village at Carlson Terrace.

why not Hurt Village

Once in Yamsylvania, we had the potato famine. Which did not upset us because, hey, we eat only yams! Then we realized it is better to starve on potatoes than eat yams. We became so poor we had to raise monkeys for their fur. OK, we raised them for their pleasant smell and many tasty parasites. The kids today, tell them about parasite stew, and they look at you like you're some kind of nutty man, crazed from yam poisoning.

While I see that my reputation precedes me, your hostility is misplaced in this instance, good sir.

I did not know that there was a Victory Village for every compass point.  In fact, I wasn't aware there was something called "Victory Village" until today.

When I was a kid in the 60's there was a public swimming pool in Cammack Village that was pretty nice.  As I recall the lifeguards were cops who would hassle you, but I think their real purpose was to make sure there was no integrating going on.  I think after they gave my mother her third ticket she started driving us out to Lake Nixon.

If only that village were surrounded by scary animals, that might be a good plot for a movie...

They do have a sense of humor about their reputation, at least.

Based on its popularity and in response to fan requests for more reserved tailgating spots, Victory Village was expanded before the 2015 University of Arkansas football season.

In addition to the previously available reserved tailgating spots in Victory Village North (located above Lot 44 by the John W. Tyson Poultry Science building) and Victory Village East (located across Stadium Drive from Lot 44 on the Administration Hill), a new location, Victory Village South, has been established south of Bud Walton Arena near the Gardens.  Victory Village South will be located on an open grass lot directly west of the new Basketball Performance Center.

Spots in Victory Village can be reserved on a single-game or season-long basis. Tailgating in Victory Village will only be permitted with a reservation.

For more information or to reserve a spot in Victory Village, contact Intents Party Rentals at 479-251-8368.
In addition, Razorback Athletics will continue to provide the popular AT&T Fan Zone at the Gardens for free. The AT&T Fan Zone at the Gardens includes inflatable games for kids, live music, televisions and food and drink vendors.


If you rent a spot on a day we lose, do you get a refund?

My bad. I thought you were giving me shit. It's hard to tell when people are actually serious around here.

I guess no more erector set seats. They need to bowl it in completely. Looks odd as hell and reduces noise.

Looks awesome, but do the tower renovations on the west side corners mean they are putting a facade there?  I'm guessing since you can't see it that it will still be the same erector set on that side but 100% awesome everywhere else?

When the Vols were taking it up all three and filing out last Saturday, I noticed their stands were all the piss, shit and aluminium of ours.  They're stuck with all 102K of that.  We're not.   We better think this through.

Wouldn't surprise me if in the future we actually reduce seating to increase comfort. This is what TCU did putting in tons of chair backs and giving more room. It was awesome.
