Yeah, why would it be a competitive disadvantage to pack up the entire football department and move it 200 miles? Which is the same process (though shorter distance) as packing it up and moving it to, say, Tuscaloosa, Baton Rouge, Gainesville, etc. I guess to some people away games aren't considered a competitive disadvantage.Fortunately for us, it seems our AD and head coach do realize this and have the guts to start taking the steps to do something about it. I don't mind the high school stadium getting Ole Miss and the likes of Louisiana Monroe until the current contract expires, but after that, I hope that like every other school that used to do it they realize the tremendous waste of resources it is to play home games at an away location.
We TRIED to schedule a game with Boise. They didn't want any part of us.
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.
Jesus Christ, some of you frickers can't comprehend English worth a aMm. Nobody said they feel competitively disadvantaged when they play in LR. What he said is, and I fricking QUOTE: "it will prevent our team from a competitive disadvantage of traveling three straight weekends in the most crucial part..."For fricks sake, if you're going to bitch about something at least be honest with regards to what you're bitching about.
Funny that it wasn't a 'competitive disadvantage' in '98, '00 or '08 when we had 2 road games prior to LSU in LR and beat the Corndogs every time (only other time it happened was '96 and we lost to LSU in LR then). Just say the truth: it's so we can get 20k more at one of our biggest games and we could bring in recruits to campus if necessary. Any other reason is BS.
I still have my doubts about a sellout the day after thanksgiving. They ought to keep it on Saturday.
Yeah, no way a possible match-up of top 5 teams sellout. Only LSU has the type of quality program to consistently sell-out a day after Thanksgiving game.
The USC-e game between two top 10 teams last season wasn't a sell-out.
That's what I'm saying, we suck as a program. We seriously need to lower expectations around here.
I get the feeling that some would be ok if we moved to the Big East and played all our home games at Waste Management.
Got a source a link for that? Not that I don't believe you, but my girlfriend's grandpa is a huge Boise fan and likes to talk aMm a lot. He thinks they'd walk through the SEC easily.
What is this "big east" that you speak of and do we have an invite to join?
Your girlfriend's grandpa is a rutard? That sucks dude.
We've been nationally relevant as a program into November 4 times in the last 30+ years. We've never won the SEC and we haven't beaten Bama in the last 5 games. So yeah, to most of the country we do suck as a program. ...
Maybe he meant in the National Championship hunt. We've been there in November four times in the last 30 years.1988, 1998, 2006, 2011
