That one had everything but the proper ending and was the wildest berzerker hog crowd I've ever been a part of.  Any other team in the country except UNLV would have lost by 20+ points; that may have been the best semipro team of the 20th century.
Definitely back in the day.  If Ron Huery bangs your girlfriend recently, that is not cool.

I've taped a many of Razorback games, both football and basketball, that we lost.

I never, evar, watched even a portion of any of those games. I taped over every single one of them.

There's no shame in losing. Everyone loses.

There IS shame in being proud of giving a good effort and coming oh so close to victory.

That's the difference in who we've been and who we are now.

The days of being content just to be mentioned as one of the dogs in the hunt are over.

That mentality is what's going to lead us to the promise land.

Althought I agree that being content will not lead to the promised land, sharing the atmosphere that was Barnhill against UNLV is a must.  That was Hog fans at their best...that was a spirit squad, including Robkin, at their best. 
That game could teach a majority of younger Hog fans what atmosphere is all about.  It's not bass guitars, ribbon boards, and expensive courtside foldup chairs, I can tell you that much.

Don't get me wrong. I'll watch games we've lost especially if I was AT the game (like '91 UNLV.....we were tent #62, I think, and set up in the tunnel along the east side of Barnhill on Wednesday afternoon..... and recently the '11 Sugar Bowl) as I like to see what the broadcast was like. I'm just sayin' those games shouldn't be on a 'Classic' list.

I'll agree that the 1st half of '91 UNLV was classic right up to Mayberry hitting the 3 to put us up at half. Getting behind by 20+ in the 2nd half...not so much classic.

You want a classic basketball game, show the '92 LSU-Shaq OT thriller from Barnhill with Dookie V screaming "Get the gold trophy!" when Day gets fouled and puts it away in OT or the 1st and only visit to Barnhill by Kentucky in '93 complete with Corliss and Hawkins waving the state flag while standing on the scorers table after the game (still my favorite game I've ever attended and I was at the UA-UNC game in PB in '84 as a 15 year old pup).

I would love to watch the Arizona game (at Arizona) corliss' freshman year-he had "a foot" and didn't play but sheppard was awesome. And then mayday vs shaq in both barnhill and baton rouge.  Day had 43 in BR and Mayberry had 35 in barnhill with Dickie v calling the game.  I had a ticket to the baton rouge game but didn't go because I had an important paper due the following Monday.  The professor gave us an extention on Monday and I haven't forgiven myself since.

I was at both LSU and KY games.   Those should be primer material for all freshmen ever attending a basketball game.  I remember it being so loud in the KY game that all I could hear was a buzzing sound.  That and someone (Hawkins I think) dunking on Mashburn.

I realize no one has to watch games that we have lost, but having been a Razorback Fan for almost 50 years, unfortunately, heartbreaking losses are part of who we are.  I think this fact makes the winning, when it happens, that much sweeter.

I have a good friend of mine that I have taken to 6 or 7 Razorback football games, and he has yet to see a win.  We have been thinking about making the trip this year to Tuscaloosa, but don't wish to jinx the season.

A new sports program debuts tonight on KARZ-42.

Arkansas Sports Nation airs weeknights at seven o'clock with Kerri O'Hara and Jason Snavely.

Click the video box for a sneak peek.

Here's the official news release from KARZ-42:

Shortly after announcing it has been granted the exclusive rights to air classic Arkansas Razorback football games, KARZ-TV 42 makes another big announcement. The MyNetwork TV affiliate will be launching a daily, local sports show during primetime. The show will be called "Arkansas Sports Nation" and the first broadcast will air Tuesday, July 5, 2011 at 7pm.

The fast-paced show will be hosted by KARK 4 Sports Director Kerri O'Hara and Anchor Jason Snavely. It will consist of the day's biggest and most important stories in the sports world as well as an updated Razorback Nation report each night. The show will also thrive on in-depth coverage of local high schools, colleges, youth sports and even outdoor and water sports.

Kerri O'Hara says, "A half-hour show gives us so much time to work with than our traditional newscasts do. We have so many talented high school, college and professional athletes in Arkansas that deserve more attention. Now, we'll be able to give it to them, plus hear from coaches, experts and analysts who will help give the viewer a more in-depth look at the stories."

"Arkansas Sports Nation" replaces the 7pm newscast and Nexstar Broadcasting VP and GM of Little Rock Television and E-Media Mike Vaughn says, "With traditional newscasts near the 7pm time-slot, 'Arkansas Sports Nation' is a tremendous way for KARK, KARZ and ArkansasMatters.com to differentiate the outstanding sports coverage that all of our platforms provide and give both viewers and advertisers something unique to be part of and enjoy."

I don't mind watching losses if they have aged a bit. I'm not yet in a mood to watch the 2011 Sugar Bowl, but I'm okay with watching the 1962 Sugar Bowl.

I'm watching.  Surprised we don't have a game thread.

Can someone explain why we had that touchdown called back?

Didn't put 'em away when we had the chance.

It's almost like Nutt was coaching us that game.
