So we all agree people from Kansaw are Yankees?
The US government was reluctant to put a land-grant institution smack dab in the middle of the part of the state with strong Confederate roots.
I learned in a horticulture class that the whole reason the University of Arkansas is in Fayetteville (and not closer to Little Rock/East Arkansas) is because the people in NWA didn't fight for the Confederacy. The US government was reluctant to put a land-grant institution smack dab in the middle of the part of the state with strong Confederate roots.
Competitive bids were accepted from towns expressing an interest in being the location of the school. Elections for bond issues were held in Independence, Pulaski, and Washington counties. Washington County, like most of Arkansas still in post-war financial straits, voted $100,000 in thirty-year bonds, with the town of Fayetteville offering $30,000 to start the school, more money than the Prairie Grove/Viney Grove area, also in Washington County.Fayetteville was already noted as a center of education, being the location of such institutions as the antebellum Arkansas College and the Fayetteville Female Seminary. William S. Campbell, in his history of Fayetteville, notes: “On the basis of compliance with provisions of the enabling act, solvency of bids, healthfulness of location, amounts tendered, and educational achievements, the bid was awarded to Fayetteville.”In October 1871, Fayetteville officially won the bid, but in order to comply with the deadline of the Morrill Act ten years previous, the school had to open by February of 1872. The board selected the property for the campus in November 1871. A farmhouse on the McIlroy farm about a mile northwest of downtown Fayetteville was fitted with seats, blackboards, and stoves. It opened its doors to students as Arkansas Industrial University on January 22, 1872. Of the eight students at the new university, one was a woman, Anna Putman, reflecting local attitudes in the tradition of the famed Fayetteville Female Seminary at a time when women had little schooling of any kind. UA began and remained a coeducational institution.
The old legend was that when the UA was approved a young Frank Broyles was made coach and he wanted to keep the school in the lilly white north.
I just wanted everyone to agree that beer mixed with tomato/clam juice is gross.
Google Kansas St Sluts....
I don't know about the clam juice, but I like red beer, particularly with a brunch. Sort of a low-rent bloody mary. And you have to mix it with your favorite can of lager, it doesn't work with heavier ales and such.Does this come from Kansaw?
their mascot is fricking incomplete. motherfricker has human arms and legs but a furry head.
Must be Kansaw's equivalent to Pedobear. Oh the possibilities. Some of you photoshop genuses need to get on this pronto.Is it just me or does it's face also look like a fucking shark too?

Some of 'em look like a goddamned Tex Avery wolf.
You shut your whorish mouth.Don't you blaspheme the Tex Avery wolf. He'd be a perfect woopigga.
