my god you're a degenerate
It was on SEC+ which is on the Watch ESPN app if you have it on a smart TV.
Get nervous in the first half?
Bunch of Debbie Downers. If you didn't watch the game and just see the score, today was a good day. I thought you guys knew better
We should try making halftime adjustments before the opening kickoffs.
But he said we’d make them during the game! Before halftime!
One of my favorite games of all time.
Hard to choose between that and the 03 game.
never read this site b4 so ...
meh this wasn't super insightful.
if we are going to beat texas we have to run for 150, burks has to have a really good day and the defense has to make some plays. also, briles has like 5 bonehead calls each game. he needs to cut that down to like 2. we had two 3rd and 2s on saturday and we ran a qb sneak for 1 and a end around with burks in a formation that kept everyone in the box. i don't know what kind of boss pittman is, but i would be reaming briles for both of those calls this week.
i think texas -6 is about right. a spread under a touchdown in a college game means there isn't a heck of a lot between the teams.
I think it really breaks down to if we can control their smaller but athletic D-line we should be fine. Also what you said limit the Kendall WTF plays.
lol he assembled his staff for a bit
I love that guys energy and love for the university
We had quite the logo in the early-to-mid 1930s, but after that it's been one kickass logo after another.
On years we play texas in fayetteville that are end in 1 we win. 1951, 1981, 1965 is the only outlier. So sounds like we win 2021 based on history.
He really is a complete player. Tough to find any flaws
Don't sell yourself short. You can do it
flying up there saturday morning. first time in fayetteville for like 5 years. cant wait
Don’t fall down and hurt yourself this time.
I would say I'd buy you a beer but the lines at Rice game were so insane I'm not even going to try, only place they weren't ridiculous lines was north endzone
You will probably be in a fancy pants luxury box anyway tho
Nah not this time. I actually have no idea where my seats are. Uncle said he had 4 and was only using two
I will be in a box for auburn game though :)
do they sell beer in all areas of the stadium now?
Yes. I'll be in section 103 if want to play popcorn trick with me
Seriously though the beer lines aren't worth it, you will miss an entire quarter. Unfortunately my wife isn't going bc she likes going to games but also doesn't care and will stand in line for me. you bae
I will try north endzone or not drink
guess i'll just have to get liquored up before going in the stadium. shouldnt be a problem!
Staying at hotel called the graduate that looks like it’s pretty close to the square.
Is there somewhere close to that to grab a sandwich that won’t have a line before meeting up with friends?
Graduate is a cool hotel. Hugo's is a block away, Derek's special and some fries is my go to but they have lots of good food
edit: just saw the long line part
Yeah been to Hugo’s a bunch but on a game weekend it will be a mess I’m sure
If the hotel has it's bar area open (it was under renovation last time I stayed) they have good looking burgers but I've never had one
All places are booked up already/will have a line. Wife was going to have brunch with friends saturday in rogers and everything was full up there.
Sounds like airport breakfast and hoping the tailgates I go to have some food
Razorbacks launch subscription-based content streaming network
by Talk Business & Politics staff ([email protected]) 16 hours ago 213 views
The University of Arkansas announced Tuesday (Sept. 7) a subscription-based content streaming network to showcase the Razorbacks.
The service is called Hogs+, and it’s set to launch Friday (Sept. 10) at arkansasrazorbacks.com and hogsplus.com. According to a UA news release, Hogs+ is a partnership with Sport & Story, a Fayetteville company headed up by executive producer Bo Mattingly that produces documentary films, podcasts and other content.
The UA said in the release that it’s among the first college athletics departments to launch its own direct-to-consumer subscription-based streaming content network. It will feature exclusive content that will take Razorback fans behind the scenes with their favorite teams, athletes and coaches.
A subscription costs $7.99 per month. Hogs+ subscribers that are not already Razorback Foundation members will receive a complimentary Razorback Foundation membership, discounts on Razorbacks merchandise and other benefits.
“We’re excited to launch Hogs+, an innovative way to connect our fans to their favorite student-athletes and coaches with compelling behind-the-scenes content,” UA Athletic Director Hunter Yurachek said in a statement. “With help from Sport & Story, we’re able to provide Razorback fans with something no other athletic program in the nation is providing. Our vision is to always be our best in anything we do. Hogs+ puts us at the forefront of delivering engaging and inspiring stories about our athletic programs, student-athletes, coaches and letterwinners.”
The UA says Hogs+ production crews have been embedded with Razorbacks football coach Sam Pittman and the football team since the first team meeting in early August. The behind-the-scenes content will be seen in the first four episodes of “The Follow” on Hogs+.
“I’m grateful for Hunter Yurachek’s vision that allows us to connect Razorback fans to their team in a way they have never experienced before,” Mattingly said in a statement. “Streaming compelling original content directly to consumers is the future of college athletics, and we’re proud to help make the University of Arkansas an innovative leader in college sports by delivering this premium content every week through Hogs+.”

Tusk to Tail: A 34-year history of hating on the Longhorns

Pat Green has a song called “Texas on My Mind.” It seems like Texas has been on the mind of most Hog fans all summer. It was already the game circled on most of our calendars. We also learned that our old SWC rival will be joining the SEC in 2025 along with Oklahoma.
Texas. Just the mention of the word boils the blood of most Razorback fans who are 40-plus years old. Just seeing burnt orange does the same thing. That color is not allowed to be used in my kids’ drawings. Just kidding … maybe.
Let’s hope the game lives up to the buildup. This game is set up to be the first since the north end zone was finished to have a full house, sold out, electric and insane atmosphere. The north end zone expansion was finished in 2019 before the final Chad Morris train wreck season. Crowds were scarce. And we had just 25% capacity last season during the pandemic.
We haven’t seen what this new car can do yet.
Time to take it out for a spin.
My first introduction to Texas was Oct. 17, 1981 when #1 Texas came into Fayetteville. They had just blasted Oklahoma 34-14 the week before in Dallas at the Red River shootout. They came to the hill riding high as a 6-point favorite. The Hogs were coming off a loss to TCU and Lou Holtz was not excited about going back home to play Texas. I’ll never forget Holtz’s quote.
“Coming home to play Texas is like coming home to your wife with lipstick on your collar. Sometimes, you might be better off not coming home.”
The Hogs jumped out to an early lead after Texas fumbled the first snap and Billy Ray Smith recovered. The Hogs scored quickly and often. I remember listening to it on the radio as dad and I could not get home fast enough to watch. The turnovers just kept coming from the Longhorns and the Hogs’ scoring never stopped. Arkansas rolled to a 42-11 legendary victory over the #1 Horns. The field goal posts and party went to Dickson.
My introduction to seeing second ranked Texas in person was Oct. 15, 1983 at Little Rock’s War Memorial Stadium. This was Holtz’s last season as the Head Hog. Our tickets were in the southeast corner of the stadium right next to the Texas band. I was 13 and remember how annoying their band was as they talked trash across the chain link fence between us. It was the first time I remember feeling hate toward another team. After hearing “Texas Fight” all day as they rolled us 31-3, there is no doubt this is the game where my passion to hate the Horns began.
There were plenty more opportunities.
• Oct. 17, 1987 at Little Rock
The one that hurt the most. Arkansas came in 4-1 and ranked #15. Texas was unranked, 2-3, and not very good. The Hogs were up 14-10 with 1:48 to go, and Texas had 56 yards to go for the win. Steve Atwater put a Steve Atwater hit on a Texas receiver early in the drive and the ball came loose. Four Hogs and a Longhorn jumped for it. All the Hogs were pointing that we had the ball, but the center for Texas somehow got downfield in the scrum to come out with it.
Texas had used their last timeout in the middle of the drive, but with the clock stopped on an incompletion with four seconds left, Coach Hatfield called a timeout. It gave the Longhorns time to draw up a play instead of hurrying against the play clock.
Texas QB Brett Stafford found Tony Jones over the middle between Atwater and two other Hogs for a 16-14 win. In four seconds, the deafening crowd went to stunned silence. I’ll never forget standing there in shock with the other fans, then walking out in dead silence with my dad and neighbor. Hatfield infamously opened his coach’s show the next day with scripture. “Jesus wept.”
• Oct. 21, 1989 in Fayetteville
It was homecoming on The Hill my sophomore year. The Hogs came into the game ranked #7 and undefeated. We led 14-13. Then the Horns scored 11 straight to go up 24-14. We scored on a Barry Foster run to make it 24-20 in the third quarter but that’s how it ended. We went down to Little Rock the next week and beat Houston in one of the best games I’ve ever seen in person, 45-39.
• Oct. 19, 1991 at Little Rock
This game was dubbed The Last Shootout, with the Hogs leaving the SWC for the SEC the following year. Jack Crowe’s Hogs were not very good but the crowd was. Gardnere was the QB for the Horns and had #10 on just like Stafford did in 1987 for Texas. But there would be no Texas magic this time. The Hogs held on 4th and 10 from the 50 with 0:30 left for a 14-13 win.
There have been more recent memories, good and bad.
• Jan. 1, 2000 at the Cotton Bowl, Dallas
There was an insane alumni party at the Adams Mark the night before. The next morning came early, and hangovers were everywhere. The thumping the Hogs put on Texas was the best cure.
• Sept. 13, 2003 at Austin, Texas
KATV dubbed the VHS tape they sold of this game Ambush in Austin. It was an early afternoon game with a heat index well over 105 degrees. Texas came in ranked #5. The Hogs got down 7-0 early and then went up 21-7 and never looked back on their way to a 38-28 upset. We partied on Austin’s famous 6th Street til the wee hours of Sunday morning. There were not a lot of Texas fans out that night, but Matthew McConaughey was. I saw him leaving as we were walking into a bar. Hog fans that were there said he was rude and pissed off. All right. All right. All right.
• Oct. 11, 2004 in Fayetteville
#8 Texas vs. the unranked Hogs. Houston Nutt vs. Mack Brown. Vince Young vs. Matt Jones. The Hogs were down 22-20, 3rd and 8 with 2:48 to go. Arkansas was in field goal range to possibly win. Matt Jones scrambles. Fumble. Game over.
• Dec. 29, 2014, Texas Bowl, Houston
I saw this one with Tusk to Tail. I had great club seats with my dad. It was the Hogs all day 31-7 and “Borderline erotic.”
These games just mean more.
Do I have to say it? Hell yes, I do. Beat the hell out of Texas!
Editor’s note: Now in its 10th year, Tusk to Tail is the sport of tailgating as organized, performed and perfected by a group of Hog fans who have been tailgating together sober and otherwise for more than a decade. The primary focus of Tusk to Tail will be to follow the Hogs through the fans’ perspective with their insightful, irreverent, smart-alecky and sometimes practical style. The diehards may also be followed on their Facebook page. Or follow the crew on Twitter and Instagram, all @TuskToTail.
This should be the other way around
I want to have his babies.
Curious about you youngsters' hate list
I'm old sWc old so Texas automatically jumps to #1. Never gave a shit about aTm until they came in and took LSU from us and had to deal w some of those weirdo alums professionally.. Don't know where to put OU.
5. Ole Miss (folks older than me really didn't like them at all)
7 Bamma (I accept we can't do shit about them as long as Saban is there)
Aggies and not particularly close
Fuck the Aggies the most
LSU and Florida are up the list for me. Aggies close behind, Texas right there as well but it’s died off since we hardly ever play. That’ll change once they join the conference.
He forgot 2008
That year didn’t count
Nope. Gas leak that year. Whole thing's a wash.
Longhorns about to take one in the cornhole iykwim
Lots of drinking game experience above that belt
He’s gorgeous and I love him
I’m here with my daughter and she wanted Hugo’s. Wait was stupid so we just ordered to go and ate at hotel, took 20 minutes
That might be the move tomorrow
the first and second floor of your hotel has plenty of places to sit down & eat. Hugo’s is too fucking crowded before covid anyway. You don’t even have to go inside, they have a guy outside doing to go orders
