Alright you sorry, lousy stupid son of a bitches in Lousiana and Alabammer.

Come on up to Fayetteville and get your ass whipping that is due to you in front of 15 thousand happy college students and a loud 72K crowd.  Drive up the mountains and admire our scenic beauty and then get your ass whipping and drive all downhill back to your shanties to drink your Dixie Beer and frick your ugly Jorts wearing wives.

The underlying issue that no one on the LR side wants to talk about is the attendance. There shouldn't have been that many empty seats for New Mexico game... and there were probably 50,000 people watching on TV on the golf course at the time.

Ole Miss is a better draw to get people into the stadium vs Kentucky.


We all like to talk about how great the WMS environment is, and it is, but the whole golf course tailgating scene has really worked against it in recent years.

But you'd also see a stadium maybe 2/3 full at best if it was that big of a snowstorm. Obviously with many folks will be heading up Friday morning after Thanksgiving, a snowstorm like that would damper the crowd along with our high flying offense. No thanks for me wanting to play in a blizzard vs LSU.

So would I.  I'm with the good doctor on wanting to be at a game in a driving snow. 

The only game game I've ever been to where there was even snow around was the 1995 game against the school now known as Louisiana-Lafayette.  The game was November 11 that year and I was a freshman at the UA.  It snowed quite a bit the Friday night immediately before the game, but didin't snow any on the Saturday of the game.  The game was in the afternoon and they had cleared off the field and the parts of the bleachers were you put your butt.  However, all that snow and ice was pushed down into the place where your feet are, so you were basically sitting there with your feet resting on packed ice and snow. 

We won 24-13 against a Ragin' Cajuns team that featured Jake Delhomme at QB and Brandon Stokely at WR.  I'm pretty sure my feet left with a small amount of frostbite.

Oscar Malone had a big game, rushing for like a buck fidy or so.  We had good seats, but moved down to the front row chairback seats behind the LSU bench. Got on TV as channel 5 asked me and my friends who should be the next coach (this was the year Crowe got Crowed after losing to the Citadel and Kines was the interim with Danny Ford as a "consultant".)
I said Ford should be coach and my 2 buddies, not huge college fans, answered Barry Switzer and Lombardi.

I think Danny could have at least won a SEC Championship had his heart been in it. His soul never left his ranch. And with all that, he was still twice the Coach that replaced him.

I was at all of those games.  Baylor 91 was terrible - probably the coldest.  Not much snow at all, just spitting.  I assume because it was so damn cold.  And Muzzy, I was there with you.  Dumb, maybe, but I was there.  And people forget that it was on national TV back when that was a huge thing and it seemed like we were never on.  At least we were treated to a 9-5 shootout (loss).  We had like 60 yds passing and about the same in rushing.  What a shitty, shitty game all around.  Ironically, that was the first game I remember them selling pizza.  I remember this because I came thisclose to shoving it down my pants trying to warm up.  Fucking cold.

Auburn 93 was pretty rough since there was a ton of snow just sitting there, they didn't shovel the stands, and I thought I was going to lose a toe.  Then, I went immediately after an camped all night outside Barnhill just to get a voucher to buy student season tix for basketball...and man, was it worth it (NC year).

Texas A&M '85 (I think) in the driving sleet was pretty damn bad.  I still feel the sleet hitting my left cheek blowing straight in over the Broyles Center from the north.

LSU '93 was a day game (only redeeming factor) on the same day I played my last HS football game.  I somehow ended up with like 20 tickets and you couldn't pay people to go.  That was a cold motherfucker.

I was there also with my brother and our 2 boys, ages 4 and 5 at the time. I think we left a little after the half. My son's first Fayetteville game. Made it up to him, though, by taking him to the Tennessee game in '99.

I was there also with my brother and our 2 boys, ages 4 and 5 at the time. I think we left a little after the half. My son's first Fayetteville game. Made it up to him, though, by taking him to the Tennessee game in '99.

I was about the same age as those boys, and that was my first Razorback game that I remember.  I spent the entire second half in the vehicle because of the snow and cold.

The 93 Auburn game was homecoming. I was doing my time at ASU while becoming a resident of Arkansas so I could transfer up here and not pay out of state rates and remember first hitting snow at Clarksville on the way up to spent the weekend in Pomfret with the girlfriend. (I used to spend entire weekends in her room, she had a roomie from Rogers that would really treat my friend that would come up sometimes very well) We also had to camp out that weekend for basketball student tickets. It was fucking brutal to still be October.

The coldest one I remember was a Fayetteville game vs Ole Miss.  We won 35-0 (something like this), but the sleet and rain went the entire game.  This would've been probably 12 years ago or so.  Our season tickets were still close to the top of the West side.

The most rain that I've seen was against Tulsa back when RRS was 2 sides and the East side was only 1 level.  It rained so hard we couldn't see the field from our seats (we were on East side close to the top).  I remember walking back to the car and the water coming off the hills was probably 4 inches deep.

The coldest game I ever went to was in either 98 or 99. I don't remember who it was, maybe one of the Miss schools. It was sleeting its ass off. One of my best friends and I stayed for the whole game. The whole 2nd half we were standing in our band section because they left. I remember we were blowing them out and at the end they were trying to score. "The PA announcer says "Please don't let them score!". They turned it over and he says Thank you for not letting them score!". For some reason I thought that was the funniest shit. Walked back up the hill and took forever for me to get my keys in the doorlock my hands were shaking so bad.

Man, you young 'un's. Let me tell you about MY coldest experience at Razorback Stadium.

Homecoming 1972. My brother's freshman year in college at the U of A. I was 12. We started that year ranked #5 in the nation. Had Joe Ferguson as a senior. Dark horse national championship contenders. Got killed by USC at WMS in our opener. Things went downhill from there and we had 4 losses by the time SMU came to town for our homecoming. It snowed all morning and by game time it was close to blizzard conditions. I was wearing cloth tennis shoes and by halftime I could barely even feel my feet. By that time we were also behind by a couple of TDs and well on the way to another loss. We all made our way back to our old station wagon and turned the heater on. I had to take my shoes and socks off to let my feet thaw. Never been so cold before or since. I've also never again worn cloth tennis shoes to a football game. :abe:

Texas A&M '85 (I think) in the driving sleet was pretty damn bad.  I still feel the sleet hitting my left cheek blowing straight in over the Broyles Center from the north.

I was a sophomore at the U of A in '85 and attended this game.  The stands were almost empty by game's end.  That was a cold MFer.

Don't know if many of you attend away games but one of the Mississippi State games early in Nutt's tenure, maybe 2000, it was cold, sleeting, freezing rain.  Just downright crappy.  Similar to that 1985 TAMU game in Fayetteville. 

I was at all the other cold ass games y'all have mentioned except for that Baylor game.  The Liberty Bowl in 2010 and the Cotton Bowl in 2002 would probably get my votes as COLDEST games I've ever attended.

The girl I was dating at the time made it all the way to the fourth quarter and then told me she couldn't feel her feet. I couldn't believe she made it that long. We wound up eating at El Sombrero and listening to Arkansas win it on a fourth down stop.

UA can take LSU, but 2 games must stay

By Wally Hall


LITTLE ROCK — By now some of the disappointment has dimmed.

The LSU game is moving to Fayetteville, replaced in War Memorial Stadium by Ole Miss.

For Arkansas Razorbacks fans in central, south and eastern Arkansas, the game with LSU had become one of pride.

A Thanksgiving weekend showdown.

For the Razorbacks fans in west and Northwest Arkansas, the joy is probably still pretty intense.

Where the disappointed fans are thinking no more miracles on Markham Street, the happy fans are thinking what 10,000 Tigers fans will do for their economy, especially when the games are played on Friday.

Most of those LSU faithful would come to the Rock and tailgate starting on Tuesday or Wednesday and stay until the day after the game.

They fried their turkeys with all their secret ingredients injected into their birds. They talked, drank and ate.

Now, they’ll take over every empty lot in Fayetteville and make it a hot spot for Tigers football.

It is understandable why some are disappointed: The LSU game had become a huge sporting/social event. It was a tough ticket and a hearty party with an estimated 20,000 tailgaters who were ticketless.

Yet, there is reason for the move, and it is about recruiting.

Bobby Petrino will let his boss Jeff Long be the face man on this decision, but the football coach wanted the game moved because NCAA rules only allow recruits to make one official visit to an off-campus facility.

So at Arkansas’ season finale every other year, there were no recruits, and make no mistake, the final visit is very important. Kids tend to remember the last thing they did.

Plus, there is the fact that next year if the LSU game were in the Rock that would have meant three consecutive weekends the Razorbacks were traveling.

The Razorbacks are at South Carolina on Nov. 10, at Mississippi State on the 17th and play LSU on the 24th (yes, it is a Saturday for now).

It seems the decision to swap one of the best teams in the SEC for one of the worst was made with one intent, to do what is best for the program.

All those disappointed fans will be over it by the time the Rebels come to town Oct. 27. It will still be a tough ticket. Arkansas has a long history with Ole Miss.

Plus, there are still two games in central Arkansas, and that should be continued beyond the 2016 contract.

The games in Little Rock connect the entire state. That’s what makes the Razorbacks special, and they are the undisputed No. 1 sports program in the state.

That’s because the family tree, rooted in Fayetteville,has a home away from home in the Rock.

Those two games make every game a family homecoming.

Kevin Crass, chairman of War Memorial Stadium, and all of the commissioners handled last week’s news with strength and dignity.

Crass and his son were at the Razorbacks basketball game Saturday and no one cheered louder or harder for the Hogs.

There is no doubt Fayetteville is no longer a sleepy college community. Northwest Arkansas is a thriving metropolis and it can easily handle six home games, and deserves every one of those.

Right now, the UA and its fans have a win-win situation.

No one is clamoring for more than one basketball game or one baseball game, which sold out in less than 24 hours. They just want to keep those and their two football games.

Granted, War Memorial Stadium isn’t as luxurious as Reynolds Razorbacks Stadium, but the grand old lady is constantly being updated and more improvements are being considered.

And the players love playing in both of their home stadiums.

Last week’s news of the game switch might have been disappointing, but it was what was best for the program, like keeping two games in central Arkansas.

Look at the benefits of the move. It will actually allow more Arkansas fans to see the Hogs in LR. LSU always used their full allotment and then some via  secondary market. It will also bolster that inflated win percentage many boast about.

I love how he twists it saying LSU fans are coming up on Tuesday just for the game and staying until Saturday just for the game leaving the underlying thought that the LR economy would take a hit through less hotels, restaurants. 

No, nobody in LA has any family in the LR area.  And no, they wouldn't be staying with relatives for Thanksgiving.  No, let's go out of state for 4 days and have a turkey sammich at a Holiday Inn.  Give me a damn break with that crap.

I also doubt they are allowed into the part to set up on the Tuesday before the game.

I was there.  Awesome game.  Maybe the drunkest/foolest I've ever been at a game, but we finally hurt all their good players (I think maybe 6-8 of their starters eventually left the game) and pulled it out at the end.  I'm thinking Brandon Holmes played running back and just showed that he was the toughest MF on the field.  That dude was stout.

The most rain that I've seen was against Tulsa back when RRS was 2 sides and the East side was only 1 level.  It rained so hard we couldn't see the field from our seats (we were on East side close to the top).  I remember walking back to the car and the water coming off the hills was probably 4 inches deep.

Coming back to this one. 

Probably the most rain I've seen was the 2000 Alabama game.  Judas, I thought I was going to have build an ark.  It was just gushing down the stands and there was a river on each sideline.  All the women in our crew went back to the car at halftime from getting "cold".  My brother in law at the time had this "super rain suit" (whatever).  I had my trusty (and lucky) poncho. He started freezing his balls off and took off with 10 min left to go.  He asked me to come to the car with 5 min to go.  Yeah, sure, whatever, just leave so I can watch the ballgame.  That was the game that Robby Hampton hit Poydras in the north endzone (who disappeared into the students) with seconds left to play .  Man, that was a thrilling win.  Got the death looks and silent treatment the whole way home, but who gives a aMm - we won!

Another gully-washer was '97 vs Auburn.  Man, we sucked ass.  Something like a 29 pt dog to Dameyuene Craig and came "close" (see:  lost by less than 3 tds - my homer bet covered!).  That was the game that we were mixing drinks in the 32 oz cups.  I would chug half the cup, look down after swallowing, and the cup was filled back up with rain again.  Finally said frick it and just drank straight from the pint as there weren't many around and security just didn't feel like fricking with it so long as you weren't making an ass of yourself.  There weren't many that stuck around to the end of that one.  I barely remember the end.

Officially, the Arkansas season finale with LSU is moving from Little Rock to Fayetteville so the Hogs can avoid a third trip away from Reynolds Razorback Stadium to end the season. Travel is the primary reason cited in a university news release, Jeff Long’s comments to us and a Bobby Petrino radio appearance.

Finding room for another 20,000 or so fans also helps. It’s no secret the Fayetteville venue is larger and presents an opportunity to generate more revenue.

But as we’ve told you since December when we learned the move was being discussed,: recruiting is a major reason for the move.

That reasoning hasn’t escaped the notice of Tony Barnhart, national football columnist for CBSSports.com. Barnhart, known as Mr. College Football, was on the Tim Brando Show and offered his thoughts on the venue swap.

Barnhart doesn’t expect the LSU game ever gets moved back to Little Rock. That weekend is too valuable to recruiting, he said:

“That’s a big recruiting weekend. When you’re off campus, guess what? You’ve got no place to take them. There is nothing to tour. You don’t have the facilities. This is a huge recruiting weekend for Arkansas for obvious reasons. That’s why — I promise you — the LSU-Arkansas game will never go back to Little Rock.”

Never?

Long stressed to me last week that the move wasn’t necessarily forever.

I’m not so sure.

These are not mutually exclusive statements.

Long can't officially state that the move is permanent. But anyone with a brain can see it's going to be.



Apparently, Barnhart has a brain.

baylor 1991 - final swc game in nam. not much shelter from storms back then at razorback stadium - very cold and inches of snow. jason allen went down that game and so did th razorbacks.
I was there, but fortunately in the Tyson sky box.  Billy Ray Smith was sitting on the couch behind us, and he and I pretty much finished off a bottle of scotch that was under the sink in the bathroom.

Normally, I don't like the indoor sky boxes, but that day, with a late kickoff and the cold and snow, being inside was just fine.

When I think of wet games, that 2001 Tennessee game isn't far behind the Bama game the year before.
Band couldn't even stay out, so they piped the fight song through the speakers for the running through the A. I remember the entire crowd that was brave enough to stand out in the rain singing along loudly enough to the point that it sounded like we had just all sang on our own in unison. Really fricking cool.

That was also the first night of the south endzone. Security was overwhelmed and everyone and their daughter/uncle/grandpa were in the concourse of the indoor/outdoor club areas to stay dry and warm. It was shoulder to shoulder on both levels.

Multiple lightning delays... one that I was convinced was really just because you could barely stand up straight it was raining so heavily. Clusterfuck of a night, but one people always remember.

A lot will also depend on how the future sschedule shakes out.  We might not be playing LSU at the end of the year when they go to a more "permanent" schedule.  Who knows what will happen, especially if it goes to 9 conference games.

Remember it well.  I almost added it to the list, but most of the rain had already happened all day prior to the game.  By the time the game came, it was still raining somewhat, but it was the lightning and the delays.  One of those "weird" nights and a sparse crowd for ESPN game vs Tennessee.  Great game (and cover!) although it was like 13-3 or something.

And since we seem to have another theme of games where there were only like 6 people at the end, the 2003 Florida game was up there despite the great weather.  Yes, this was the "Bua game".  We were down something like 31-3 at half and the place just gutted.  Then, we staged a huge comeback and damn near came all the way back.  It was like a carnival experience for those of us still around.  At one point, I turned around and there was literally no one for 25 rows behind us.  Strange.

I know you all have been waiting with baited breath on my 2cents on this.  I have been a
Little Rock guy since childhood, coming here from the Delta when the speed limits were 55 and gas was about the same.  For the past twenty years or so I have thought that we as a program NEEdED little Rock games for many reasons, among them fan support and a winning atmosphere.


Now, this day, with this coaching staff, I say fuck that shit.  If BMFP wants to play them all on the motherfucking moon because he says it gives a better chance
To win, then I say buy a gotdammed space ship and save me
 A seat.

Fuck it, little rock should be happy with what ever scraps are thrown our way.  The university is in Fayetteville, frank had an interstate highway system built(complete with a fucking TUNNEL) to make it easier to get there.  I am in favor.

I was at both of those games, and at a lot of the games mentioned in this thread. 

I'll never forget going to the Mississippi State game in Fayetteville toward the end of the '97 season.  It was in the afternoon on a pretty nice day, and there were maybe 30,000 people there at the start of the game, and that's probably being generous.

We won the game, but I just mostly remember it for how empty the stadium was.

Well, since this thread is already derailed, I'll just mention the 2002 Troy State game in Little Rock: cold, windy, raining pretty much the entire game, and we played like ass. The final was 23-0 or something like that, but it took a couple of defensive/special teams TDs to get there.

I stayed in Marrs Electric's box suite for that one. On the walk up to the stadium some idiot TN fan in a jersey with Ice Man (I think their QB at the time had the nickname) on the back of it was talking shit and got the hell beat out of him. We got em all separated and the dude just kept walking with a bad bloody nose, left a trail the whole way up. You could hear the group yelling "The Ice Man Cometh" all the way into the stadium. Of course they wound up winning and the guy talked shit the whole way back.

I was a junior that year.  If I remember right, it was like opening weekend of deer season and we were playing our way through the end of a really bad year.  I think it was like the next-to-last game of the year.  It was a really, really nice day, though.   

I remember them selling student tickets for $1 per game that year just to try to get some students out there.  There was a LOT of apathy at that time in the fanbase, for good reason.

It's probably going to be C-USA vs. the Belt in this bowl per this article:
http://arkansasmatters.com/fulltext?nxd_id=512622

"A college football bowl game could be in Little Rock's future.

The idea came up today during a meeting of the War Memorial Stadium commission.

Nothing has been decided yet, but the commission hopes to enter talks with the Sun Belt Conference, whose head comes to town tonight for UALR basketball games being played through Saturday.

War Memorial officials want to talk to the Sun Belt about a Conference USA/Sun Belt Bowl in Little Rock next year.

Although it's still early in the discussions, one suggested name for the bowl game is the Rice Bowl because of Arkansas' ties to the rice industry."

In Mobile, you can git dronk and go piss in the gulf.

Get ready for the Diamond Bowl brought to you by Sissy's Log Cabin. DTS callers will dazzle our special guests with authentic frontier gibberish.

I think there is potential and they are being smart with the conference tie-ins.

It's not ever going to sell out, but because they are pulling from two conferences with regional presence, there are going to be years where the bowl has a very respectable turnout compared to other lower-tier bowls.

The draw of lower-tier bowls isn't so much the destination... it's just the fact that fans get to go to a bowl game. It's not an automatic, every year thig for most of these schools. If Tulsa is playing LA Tech (assuming they join he SBC when the WAC folds), I'd bet 40k is an attainable goal for the Rice Bowl. ASU, Troy, North Texas, MTSU, UAB, Southern Miss, etc. would all bring folks.

The Liberty Bowl is a shithole in a shithole town, and ECU brought a very respectable contingent in 2009.

As long as its a doable trip for both schools I think there is potential for some decent crowds.

Hopefully a tradition will develop for the winning team to go antiquing in Keo, or perhaps burning England and Coy to the ground.

OT but what is the deal with odd hand motions and furniture sales?  Hank does the weird repetitive robotic motions and the Sams guy is always rocking the ZZTop thing.

The Sam's guy is the walking, talking definition of morbidly obese.  Saw that guy once in his Grand Cherokee (with gold plated badgest, natch) and it looked like 10 pounds of sugar shoved into a 5 pound bag.

You guys quit hatin on scott & Keo. ( since I live out that way)  Cothams is ok, one of the few local joints we have close.  don't be threatening to burn it down.  also, FYI this will be the next major growth of central arkansas, since there's nowhere else to expand in LR/NLR.  keep this hurr, tho.

Nothing wrong with England, Scott or Keo.  Quickest way to get out in the country from LR.  Lots of oxbows to catch the cats/crappie on.  Too durn hot, though.  And enjoy your dirt washed down there from the Boston Mountains.  I wish I could get it back.

Saw this being discussed on TD. LSU's AD made a remark insinuating that he'd prefer LSU vs. A&M to be on Thanksgiving. Interesting, I guess.

http://theadvocate.com/sports/lsu/2187346-123/scheduling-could-be-sticky-in.html

Then there’s the matter of who LSU would end the season with. Since Arkansas joined the SEC in 1992, that team has been the Razorbacks. But Alleva is warming to the idea of ending the season against A&M, and he said he gets a similar vibe from College Station. That rivalry would be a natural season-ender for two schools with so much similar territory in common, but one of the problems is what to do with Arkansas?

The coldest one I remember was a Fayetteville game vs Ole Miss.  We won 35-0 (something like this), but the sleet and rain went the entire game.  This would've been probably 12 years ago or so.  Our season tickets were still close to the top of the West side.


To echo a sentiment from earlier in this thread...I was at this game on my band recruiting visit.  It was my first exposure to Arkansas football, having grown up in Texas in a family that only cared about pro football.  It. Was. Miserable.  We ended up leaving sometime in the 3rd quarter because my little sister was so miserable.  But the fans won me over.  I'll never forget that.  It was 1998.

Give us Mizzou in this spot so we can lay that ass-whipping on them each year after their roster is beat up and depleted.

So, Mizzou really is the new Vanderbilt...

I don't give a frick when we play Corndog University.  We'll whip that ass in October in front of a national and INTERESTED audience.  They can play A&M after we've left them both irrelevant in the national title race while we whip the shit out of Mizzou the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Why are we automatically assuming we'd play Mizzou on that day?
It could just as easily be Tennessee or Vandy. Scheduling is a complete mess right now.

I'm just free styling here--but myself and many other Hog fans fricking hate Mizzou right now. Hopefully those that make these kinds of decisions are picking up on that.
