Love the basketball team and MA.. BUT......
« on: November 18, 2017, 04:11:34 pm »

There is just one tiny thing that I wish could change...."Fastest 40 minutes of basketball" slogan. UGH   40 minutes of HELL sounded so good but I guess in today's world that is considered offensive. Blah

I'd say the world we currently live in is actually more accepting of casual light profanity than the 90's. Am I missing something?

I notice some of the players still say 40 minutes of hell. I'm sure it's still used, just not the brand the university puts out. So maybe it is a political thing, which is stupid. What was the slogan at Mizzou? UAB? Has it always been "Fastest 40"?

They stopped out of respect to Nolan because we haven't bared any resemblance to that since the early 90''s.

We play in the era of the "TOUCH FOUL" and 15 TV & Team timeouts. Momentum can no longer be sustainable venture because were forced to see a 15 second ad about a drug who use is barely more beneficial than it's side effects.

I can forsee it's name (40 minutes of hell) make a return once the court is re-named and some of the good ole boys offended by Coach Richardson pass away.

Yes. Go watch a movie for teenagers from the 90's. Way more foul language and sexual innuendo than you will have now. I was surprised to discover this.

Simply put, Fastest 40 is about offensive philosophy. 40 minutes of hell was more of a defensive idea.

Does that mean it can't be "hell" as they say just because the sentence isn't finished.

40 Minutes of Purgatory??

CMA wanted to start his own thing, from what I understand. That being said, I think it would be a brilliant PR move to reintroduce 40 Minutes of Hell, with Nolan's blessing, beginning this season. A sort of official passing of the torch, maybe even with an accompanying ceremony.

This team, along with what's in the pipeline, should usher in a new era of Arkansas basketball, which we all hope will be reminiscent of Nolan's heyday. I would LOVE to see the return of 40 Minutes of Hell, especially now that we can back it up. Great recruiting tool, too.

Why not start a petition? I think it would be seen as high praise by Mike and the team.

40 minutes of HELL sounds so good, I loved it back in the day. We would be down 17-1 against Kentucky. Then Nolan would give the team the 40 minutes of Hell signal and suddenly it was Arkansas 27, Kentucky 25.... out of nowhere... the good ol days... yeah I'm getting old...

40 Minutes of "Hell, yes!"

No we don't play at the defensive end like Nolan's teams played.

We can't. The NCAA is constantly finding ways to insert themselves deeper into the games with more rules and tighter officiating. If the 94 team played today like they did back then (and that was not a dirty team), they wouldn't make it past the Sweet 16 because of foul trouble and free throws for the other teams. It's rare to see more than one or two trips up and down the court without a whistle these days.
