Okay, so just got back from the rally a few minutes ago.  These are some of the highlights:

First: Scotty Thurman sat at our table.  What a great guy.  Says his son is coming along at sports but will probably opt for football over basketball.  Is a huge razorback of course.  Scotty spoke for about 15 mins.  Told the story of Mike Anderson and Nolan's recruitment of him.  Says Mike showed up everywhere he went.  He had narrowed his recruitment to 5 schools, TX, OU, AR, Pitt and he did not name the 5th, but implied it may have been Syracuse.  He said after his trip to Pitt, he got home about 1:00 AM and the phone rang.  It was Nolan.  Asked him how the trip to Pitt went and if he had decided where he was going.  Said he was thinking about TX.  Nolan said the Tom had never beat him at anything and there was no reason to go there.  He then mentioned Pitt.  Nolan said why would a LA guy want to go where it was so cold.  He then said that he told Nolan he was coming to AR just so he could go to bed.

Coach Anderson spoke next... talked the excitement that he was seeing everywhere he goes.  Like old times.  Spoke about securing the commitments of the already signed class.  Spoke about Rotnei and how well he shoots the ball and his incredible BBall IQ.  Thinks it will be a special year for him.  Talked about the fitness level of the team.  Says they can only have two hours a week contact with them, so they do 4 x 30 mins workouts.  Says the players can only handle about 10 mins before they are completely gassed.  That will change he says, and has gotten better recently.  Says to a player that they have responded very positively to the up tempo pace.  Says Sanchez is going to be one of the toughest, most physical players he has coached.

He asked for patience from hog fans.  Says it might be 25 mins of hell and 15 mins of what the hell was that.  But promised that we are going to compete at the highest levels and that NC was where they are aiming.

Says TX and Memphis would be focal points of recruiting, but that they would be expanding the search nationally to get the best players in the country.

Spoke highly of Coach Richardson and says the most important thing that we as fans can do is fill Bud Walton.  Says in the day it was the most intimidating place to play in America.

I spoke with him briefly, about 2 mins, after getting him to sign a hat.  Told him I was at the dedication game in Bud Walton where we spanked Mizzou.  He said that after the game, Norm Stewart came over to Nolan and said, either you guys really "[CENSORED]" good, or we really "[CENSORED]" suck.  Then he reminded me that Mizzou went 16-0 in conference and we won the NC.

Was a great night.

Coach Anderson also said that the players would be introduced to Cleveland Street.  Says Big O used to sneak a ride from a passing car going up the hill then run down.  Says they had to post trainers along the route just to keep him on track.

Thanks for the update TH188.

Scotty spoke at the Tulsa Razorback Club in November, and was fairly entertaining and at ease, given that he had said it was his first time speaking to one of the clubs.

I appreciate the clubs giving updates when the various coaches pay a visit.

Here is a +1 for you taking the time to give us an update. My guess is Tom Penders is a member of Hogville and didn't like the Scotty story.

Fortunately she takes after her mother.... and yes I'm worried as a Nutt coached QB on draft day about the next few years.

Great Report and good looking Kid.  I started stepping up my combat shotgun course runs since I have a 13 year old daughter at home.

That's a great saying... but even that is better than 40 minutes of "what the hell" and a weeks worth of bitching.
