How about Texas Tech in Arlington, and lower the damned ticket prices.
I'd rather play Okie Light. We already compete in recruiting and it would be a better win for us than Texas Tech. It's sort of weird that we don't ever play OU or OSU even occasionally and they're not that far away.
Used to play the Okie Aggies all the time until Jimmy J became their coach and they started beating us on a fairly regular basis. That would be a good one to pick up again.
I would love to see one of the service academies come to F'ville.
Except that Jimmy was 0-2 against his alma mater while at Oklahoma State. We stopped playing OSU because they got tired of being treated like a cupcake. Arkansas and OSU played 27 times between 1950 and 1980, with 24 of those games taking place inside the state of Arkansas. When they started demanding home-and-home series Frank correctly told them to frick off.
Whoever it is, I'm hoping we play in Jerryworld. It's the best stadium, our fans travel well there, and it helps with recruiting Texas. Plus, I've made that trip every year and I want to go again. Wow, you really sound like an Arkansas fan. Cheaper tickets would be nice though. I had a friend who went to the TCU game played there this season and the tickets were 1/2 what they were for the SWC.
Personally I am against anymore big boys. We've got plenty of them to get to the NC. IF we are going to continue in Jerry World it unfortunately NEEDS to be a big name because it is the perfect place to have a showcase game. How about Oklahoma in Jerry World? Even if they are in a down year you still get respect for beating them and don't get dogged too bad if they beat you. Okie light to me makes no sense because they aren't typically this good and aren't a "name", and they could beat us.
Didn't necessarily mean to imply that we quit BECAUSE of JJ. Can't blame OSU for wanting to play more of the games in Stillwater but we were still the big dogs back then. They are much more of a "name" nationally now and we are still trying to regain our national status. I just think it would be a good matchup for JerryWorld.
Agree 100%. I'd love to see that game. I just never pass up an opportunity to be a smart ass.

respectfully gonna disagree. Last year, (& in prior 2 yrs) aTm was one of our non conference opponents. We are still playing 8 conference games & they are taking someone's place. If we don't play a big name, we will have a slightly weaker schedule. ...
respectfully gonna disagree.......

Let's rotate Rice, SMU, Baylor and Texas Tech.
Let's not. Who are you people afraid of? Let's take on every motherfricker in the country early. Michigan, Nebraska, USC, whoever. Bring 'em on.We play the best of the best every year. What's one more decent game?Bring. Them.On.
We played A$M plus three chumps for n/c games, lost twice, and still finished #5 in the country. We bea LSU, we probably finish #2. We don't have a strength of schedule problem.
