    Gonna share this in a few threads.

    https://www.arkansasoutside.com/rebranding-the-buffalo-national-river/

    Cliffs: Walton group conducting surveys to gauge interest in turning national river into national park and preserve. Walton, Bass Pro, and a couple other groups also buying loads of land in the surrounding areas. No public transparency or plan in place, Walton group not really engaging public.

    I had wondered if this younger guy, name escapes me atm, would change some of the engagement since he is so open in so many of his investment/development deals

    Haven’t seen much about this but it’s interesting. I know the younger Waltons that I went to HS with (Tom and James) have had a big hand in the trail development and preserving and development of some of the parks and trails in the NWA area and had a ton of involvement in the bike trails.

    It’s very reasonable to think there’s some sort of play they’re making to profit off of it… but they are very outdoorsy type people. Id be interested to learn more about it.

    With the current distinction it can’t be exploited for minerals. If the change it, then it opens up for mineral exploitation.

    Philanthropy Walton and his brother, Tom Walton, who are mountain biking enthusiasts, were influential in the Walton Family Foundation's US$15 million charitable contribution to establish the Razorback Regional Greenway in 2015. [13]

    There’s a reason Bass Pro bought all the land to the north and Walmart bought everything to the south.

    Pitt will be back, Enos not so much. Offense dropped from the 30’s to 100’s, defense went from 100’s to 50’s.

    Pittman gets hot easily, and tired, so it's a laid back affair.

    We're about a year away from Pittman roaming the sidelines on a one of those 4 wheel scooters the fatties at Wal-Mart use.

    Sam Pittman Declines Answering Question So Many Angry Hog Fans Want to Know

    It’s never, ever a good thing when the number of fans your offensive coordinator exchanges testy emails with is more than the points his offense can muster.

    And yet, improbably, just a few weeks after Dan Enos’ Emoji-gate with UA students, the Arkansas football offense once again sputtered to a near standstill, mustering only three points in a dreadful performance the likes of which didn’t seem imaginable heading earlier in the season with such an experienced quarterback, loaded running back room and sure-handed receivers.

    The second quarter of Arkansas’ 4-point loss to Mississippi State saw Arkansas produce a total of 23 yards. On the game, Jefferson finished with just 97 yards passing, his lowest output in more than two years. “I thought we could exploit them in the secondary,” Pittman said afterward. However, the offensive line simply couldn’t hold up long enough to buy KJ Jefferson time throughout most of the game, and then when some better protection came in the the fourth quarter, Jefferson’s accuracy seemed shot. “It’s very frustrating. Everything’s frustrating. Hell, you’re frustrated. You should be. Everybody’s frustrated,” Pittman added.

    “There’s one head coach and I’ve got to figure out how to get it done. And I’m obviously not doing a good enough job.”

    Arkansas Football Returns to Familiar Ground
    Arkansas now looks as bad on offense as the lowest part of the Chad Morris era.

    “We have no creativity on offense,” former Arkansas football player Javontee Herndon Tweeted. “Our playcalling sucks. Too many bubble screens with 6’4+ WRs. No throws down the field. Why is AJ Green not playing? Can we put 14 & 16 in the game for explosive plays? When will our OL learn to block the T/E switch?”

    Frustration is boiling over from every corner of the Razorback fanbase. Folks are ready to see at least one head, maybe more, roll.

    “The offense is dead and Dan Enos has killed it,” Arkansas basketball reporter Jackson Collier Tweeted. “When you’ve reached the point where announcers are saying the route patterns don’t make sense, the halfbacks don’t look like they understand their blocking assignments, that there’s no identity, etc. you’ve reach death status.”

    Of course, the ire falls on more than just Dan Enos’ shoulders. There’s plenty directed toward the offensive line coach, Cody Kennedy, too:

    It sure doesn’t help Kennedy’s case that Jefferson has now been sacked at least four times in each of the last six games, all Razorback losses. That’s the longest such streak among SEC teams in 20 years. “Movement has given us problems all year and you saw it again today, “Pittman said. “I felt we’d have success against this team because we knew where the movement was coming from. I don’t think we got surprised with the movement. I think we got physically manhandled on some of the movement.”

    Arkansas vs Mississippi State Struggles
    Offensive lineman Brady Latham, too, was asked about the offensive line’s struggles in protecting Jefferson.

    It’s troubling that after six straight games of this, he still doesn’t know what the issue is. “There’s nothing exactly that I can put my finger on,” Latham said. “I can just say that we need to go play as hard as we can, every single snap. We need to take pride in what we do. We need to take pride in playing for Arkansas, and we need to get it fixed.”

    Well, they have been trying to get if fixed for about a month and a half now.

    Failing to accurately diagnose the issue – and then prescribe a remedy – has cost the Hogs a handful of winnable games. Arkansas football fans have seen enough of the dysfunction.

    The struggles are enough to warrant a question posed by Best of Arkansas Sport’s Andrew Hutchinson in the post-game press conference. Would Pittman consider making an in-season staff change?

    “Oh, I don’t really want to answer that,” Pittman responded.

    The fourth-year head Hog has always prided himself on being a straight shooter but declining here is totally understandable. Firing Enos and/or Kennedy mid-season is obviously a dramatic step. It would entail a lot of shuffling around of responsibilities internally and may also deter future candidates whose families wouldn’t want to walk into a place where they could get sent packing so relatively son. If Kennedy was let go, it would likely mean Pittman would do a lot more hands-on coaching of the offensive line himself.

    The problem, as much as Sam Pittman doesn’t want to answer that question for now, performances like this are forcing his hand.

    It’s not just the Razorback fans who deserve better than what the offensive line is producing these days. It’s the rest of the team as well, the defensive and special teams guys who are giving it their all to keep Arkansas in these games.

    They need help in the worst way.

    Sam’s presser was sad. Just a defeated old man with no clue what to do, and he’s packed it in. Enos being this horrific and Kennedy being such a terrible recruiter and coach ended his tenure early. Flat out admitting he didn’t know what to do isn’t something you want to admit unless you know your goose is cooked and you are looking for some early retirement.
