I wonder why it is taking so long to announce this.
Evidently Reece Davis tweeted something about Arkansas & Florida St playing...I'd rather have Rutgers. I think we would beat FSU, but you just never know. They've got Bama'esque talent on their defense. It would definitely be a challenge.
2 days ago he tweeted that 'FSU had contacted Boise, Arkansas, Wyoming, OU, TxAM and others about a game. No takers as of yet.'
Matt Jones just tweeted that it is a done deal.We play Rutgers September 22 in Fayetteville
Friday or Saturday?
there's also this:Robbie NeiswangerArkansas also announces sites for games. The Arkansas-LSU game will be played in Fayetteville. Arkansas-Texas A&M still TBD
Jacksonville StateLA-Monroe (in LR)BamaI know this has been discussed, but FUCK ME I do not like the looks of that.
EDIT: I see we lost at Fordham in 1940. We may not have traveled farther north than St. Louis since then.
“Playing the LSU game at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium directly benefits our program in a number of ways including most importantly providing an additional 20,000 Razorback fans an opportunity to cheer on our team and in this great rivalry game,” Arkansas athletics director Jeff Long said in a release. “By re-arranging the rotation and playing the regular season finale in Fayetteville, it will also prevent our team from a competitive disadvantage of traveling three straight weekends in the most crucial part of the season.
I don't mind moving the game to RRS so much, but this statement really shows how little Long knows about Razorback Football history. Ask the coaches and players if they feel "competitively disadvantaged" when they play in Little Rock.
Everyone keeps saying this...even though we didn't look any better against LSU(who was inferior to Bama, IMO) after playing a full SEC schedule.Bama was badass and we weren't...that's all that matters. Bring em on this year...we'll be well prepared just like we were 2 years ago and hopefully this year our running game and defense are improved enough to close it out.
I'm guessing Long has talked to the coaches about this a lot more than you have.
