KARZ-42 announced today that it has been granted the rights from XOS Digital to begin airing classic Arkansas Razorback football games during primetime beginning July 6, 2011 at 7:30pm. The weekly show will be titled "Razorback Classics" and the first broadcast will be the 1969 game against the Texas Longhorns. The game was played in Fayetteville and was billed as "The Game of the Century" at the time. Other games set to air include the 2002 "Miracle on Markham" versus LSU and the 1978 Orange Bowl versus Oklahoma.

As part of the agreement with XOS Digital, KARZ-42 will have the ability to utilize new and social media to generate viewer submission on games fans would enjoy seeing most as well as fan interaction during the broadcasts. The agreement also allows for instant classics to be aired the following Wednesday once the game is deemed "classic".

Nexstar Broadcasting Vice President and General Manager of Little Rock Television and E-Media Operations Mike Vaughn says, "'Razorback Classics' is a tremendous and unique opportunity for Razorback fans to experience the greatest and most memorable games the hogs have ever played and we're excited to have it on KARZ-42." Vaughn added, "It's the perfect fit for our media properties as KARK and KARZ both have direct connections to the hill with Razorback Nation and have the built-in fan base of Hogville.net to really help this great program take off."

Nexstar Regional Programming Manager Brandon Scott is thrilled to have "Razorback Classics" on the KARZ schedule. Scott said, "We're always looking for new and original programming on KARZ and 'Razorback Classics' is something we couldn't pass up. As a true hog fan it's exciting to know that each week viewers can relive the glory and the excitement or watch legendary games they have only seen clips of. We hope Hog fans will begin to make appointment viewing each week especially as the season draws near."

KARZ-42 will air "Razorback Classics" each Wednesday at 7:30pm starting July 6, 2011. The first four games are as follows;
7/6- 1969 vs. Texas, played in Fayetteville7/13- 2002 vs. LSU, played in Little Rock7/20-1978 vs. Oklahoma in Orange Bowl7/27-1991 vs. Texas, played in Little Rock Read more at arkansasmatters.com.

They should just start at the beginning and play them non-stop. Season by season. Basketball, too.

Razorback Classics! Let's start out this series by showing a frickin' loss to a hated rival.  :suicide:

Can we get over the fricking '69 texas game? I've never heard of a school so obsessed with a game that they lose.
Does anyone think that the ut network on espn will show ut classics that they lose?
I'm asking you as fans, don't give up on those players, don't give up on us, it's our program, it's the state of Alabama program...it's not one individuals program, so hang in there...

I'm not sure I'd count the LSU "Miracle on Markham St I" a classic.  Sure, it had a great finish, but didn't we play like crap for about the first 56 minutes of that game?  How about the 1981 ass-kicking we gave #1 Texas in Fayetteville?

I have mixed feelings about them showing the 69 Texas game. The 60's were a great decade for Razorback football and if they are trying to educate younger fans about that I guess I'm ok with it. Assuming of course this is the only game tape/video still available from that decade; if the 1965 Cotton Bowl or the 1965 Texas game were available I'd pick either one of them over the Big Shootout. I watched the game live and I'm over it. Sort of.  :notexas:

I would rather see the 2008 LSU game. That was Petrino's first year and great to get a win with a cupboard left bare by Nutt. It shows that great things were coming with Petrino at the helm.

59 minutes.

And another vote for the 1965 Texas game.  But, I have never heard or read anything suggesting thre is a complete tape of that broadcast.  I think in Orville's book is says NBC did that game.  I don't think KARK has the treasure trove of news and sports footage from the 60's that KATV has.
 
Speaking of NBC, I hope they have a copy of the UNC game in Pine Bluff.  I guess they will be doing baseketball. ???

Has there ever been a more improbable victory march in a more important game in the SEC?

Certainly not since we've been in there.  81 yards in 19 seconds.  For a championship.  I'd say it's a classic.

Given what then happened to us the following week in that SEC Championship game, I'd just as soon have not completed that pass!

 Believe me, seeing the "chirpy" LSU dip and his little mealy mouth girlfriend that were sitting in front of us take the walk of shame was worth the SEC beatdown.

 I've always wanted to see the 1970 Sugar Bowl vs Ole Miss replay. Yeah we lost that one too but Bruce Maxwell had probably his best game and I'd like to see it.

That was a great game.  I was there in the old Tulane Stadium.  Archie and Bill Montgomery both played a terrific game.  As you can see, my seats were not all that great.

I see now why we had that oil shortage a few years later.

I could not agree more. It's like hey, everyone come over and let's pull out those old tapes.... you know, the one where you got kneed in the nuttz by the bully on the playground, or the video of your girlfriend dumping you for some other dude. Yeah, those would be great to watch over and over again..... jeeesh.

So our program is the equal of a never was local boxer/muscleman for a loan shark who gets a lucky shot at a title and is OK with a loss because he went the distance?

Gotcha. Roll the footage '69 Texas game.

Now when do we get to see the sequels where we get a rematch, win the NCAA title, lose the title to a street thug, win title back against said thug and avenge the death of a friend by a title match on foreign soil vs the old guard CCCP.
