Here's a slide from the Powerpoint presentation that shows the distribution of ticket sales to both Fayetteville and Little Rock games.

Looks like one main thing.  The recruits we want to get outside of NWA and LR are not coming to the game with their parents regardless of where it's played.

The alumni are also not coming from those areas.

Why play

SEARK isn't doing shit for either place and central arkansas really only like LR games.

That's one way to look at it.

Another way is to say that people from Central Arkansas care more about the Hogs regardless of venue, since a higher percentage of central Arkansans travel to Fayetteville than NW Arkansans to Little Rock.  See how that works?

I don't see how we could expect SE Arkansas to support the Hogs financially.  Have you driven through that area recently?  It's depressing as hell.

it really is, which is why I don't buy the argument that we are alienating that portion of the fan base.

the other part of that, is that so many people up here have zero connection to central/south arkansas so why would they drive to LR?

The obvious answer is to see the Razorbacks play.  The same reason why so many drive to NWA from central Arkansas.

The student section on Saturday at RRS was maybe 1/4 full, and that's being generous. 

Granted, the rest of the stadium wasn't very full, either, but it's been my experience in recent years that when the team starts struggling, the students are among the first to quit showing up (regardless of where the games are played).
