And a new football center, game-day locker rooms (needed badly), elevators, big screen......

Don't forget a new kitchen for Twist.

My wife and I will be making the trip down for the basketball game this Saturday. I signed us up for the event going on at DWRRS that day:

http://www.arkansasrazorbacks.com/february-17-showcase-event/

For some of the activities like taking pictures on the field, kicking the 30 yard field goal, are those limited to people that place deposits only? On the first bullet point it states to be entered into a drawing you have to place a deposit for club seats. Does that apply for the drawing only or the rest of the bullet points? Just curious if anyone on here has further info about this event otherwise stated on the website. Thanks in advance!

We haven't had a "carpet bagger" moment in a few hours.


Holy crap! I had forgotten just how racist some of those old Looney Tunes cartoons were!  :o  Wow!
Still love Bugs and Sam, though.

LOL. But it would have been better if Bugs had called it "The War of Northern Aggression."

I hate it too, but I get smited everytime I mention it.  It looks like we ran out of money.  The only reason that is considered a "tradition" is because we didn't have a complete stadium.  Kinda like my dads old truck had a tradition of rolling down the windows when it was hot. The tradition went away when he finally bought one with a/c.

Pretty cool that the old truck would roll it’s own windows down when it was hot. I’d have kept it...

We're getting new turf, the font is to match the current font on our jerseys.

I like the ideas of making this area an intentional, designed 'water feature.' When it's still, it makes a nice reflecting pool. And, it could have dancing fountains like the Bellagio Hotel...they could go off after touchdowns.

When headphones quit working for one team, the refs make the other team stop using them also.  I've always thought the the Auburn coaches working up in the box that day should have been made to go stand in an elevator somewhere until the situation was resolved.

I don't know for sure, but I would bet we don't get natural grass any time soon.  If I recall, one of the reasons we went to turf is that it plays a little faster.  I could be wrong but I thought that was something  Petrino said at the time.

I believe the current turf was installed in 2008 and Petrino did prefer turf over grass. It's 10 years old which is time for replacement. When asked when the font would be changed to match the current font, Long has replied when we change the turf in 2018.

I haven't complained about the font, even though its not my favorite.

But the turf looks awful on TV. Idk if it's the angle of the lights hitting it or what

They are elimating flood lights to save money to pay for the expansion. New requirement.....all fans attending a night game must use their smartphone flashlight to light the field.

Coach Morris wants speed, turf is faster than grass and allows for more practice inside the stadium.  We will be staying with turf.

Both teams have to play on the same surface. No advantage either way.

Well, with the crap that was on display on that field the past few years, that may have something to do with it.

Pretty sure we bitched about the "Changes" that were forced down our throats at the time the ram rod left it's holster. We liked the way things were. Slobbering hog, uniforms, the Hog leaning on the A etc... We didn't need a special font.! The world has too many of them already.
 Look... If I get my family all packed up for a vacation and take them to Pine Bluff when we've been going to Lake Catherine every year, and they bitch about it; Who's the A-hole..?

Holy cow! Somebody call Jerruh and Sam's kids! Let's pony up for that bad boy! Think of all the Frito Pies and Pepsi's that Twist could sell with the ads running on the field during the game. This was obviously a missed opportunity by our previous AD.

Oh, I was being sarcastic. I don't live there any more. I left town in 1986. I still have family there and visit from time to time, but I have absolutely no urge to go back to live.

It is really sad to see what it has become. The video I linked makes me sick and sad.

Oh, I was being sarcastic. I don't live there any more. I left town in 1986. I still have family there and visit from time to time, but I have absolutely no urge to go back to live.

It is really sad to see what it has become. The video I linked makes me sick and sad.

I live 3 miles west of Pine Bluff. You're right, the downtown area is indeed pretty sad.

I have lived outside Chattanooga, TN, for about 20 years. I love this area and I am still shocked every time I go back to Pine Bluff at the difference between there and here.

I figured you were joking. But it was to easy to type my post.
