“This is an exciting opportunity for our program and our fans to be featured on the first Thursday night of the 2017 college football season on the SEC Network,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. “I was excited about the possibility when the SEC offered the opportunity and I think it’s a great way for our fans to kick off the season and the holiday weekend. I want to thank Kevin Crass and the War Memorial Stadium Commission as well as several local hotel owners for working with us to accommodate Florida A&M in Little Rock on these dates.” :suicide:

A reply to the article.

Smart play by the hogs. Will give them more time to prepare for TCU before the bye week, and should be plenty rested for Texas A&M after. I see a potential 3-0 start in their future.

It'll be Vandy as it's contracted to be an SEC game I believe.

Long isn't buying out the contract because he's a man of his word. When LR agree to extend to deal through 2018 in order to help out a prior season Fayetteville schedule, Long said then he'd honor the contract.


That's right.  I forgot they're obligated to put an SEC game there in 2018.

This should pretty well guarantee the "you can't even sell out one game" excuse will continue for another year. Hopefully next year's last hurrah will be a legitimate opponent at a reasonable time.

There was a day when this didn't matter for a LR game. 

I might go down, just to have a 3 day party in LR.  Oh, wait, LR is good for about 6 hours, 3 of which are tailgating.

That day changed when NWA folks quit coming to LR for games (not that I blame them, just saying).

Most NWA folks prefer to act like LR is a shit hole rather than go there for a game.

They can just tell all non-essential personnel to stay home that day.

That's not an act on my part.  I've been robbed in LR.  My brother in law was murdered in LR.  My mom died of the cancer in LR.  No, I'm not acting, LR is a shit hole, but I still go to the WMS games.
