Razorbacks to Big 12: Selling our Southern Souls

  Garth Brooks (If you were born after Y2K, he’s a famous country singer who was prominent in the 90’s) recently caused a stir in the College Football world by saying Arkansas should join the Big 12 in a conference expansion.

Razorbacks vs. Tennessee Live Blog

  Ladies and gentlemen, I'm ashamed to admit that I gave up on this Live Blog.When I sit down with a big thermos of coffee on a comfy couch to write commentary for our loyal customers- the last thing I'm expecting is a punch to the gut compliments of a 150 yard kick return on the opening kickoff.
