The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville
« on: February 28, 2017, 11:39:18 am »

Over the last 2 or 3 days I've noticed the WholeHog Sports writers (RD & others) refer to Arkansas as The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville in their columns... such as so-and-so has scholarship offers from Texas, Alabama, and the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.  Does anyone know anything about why this is?  Do they just want to make sure the readers are not getting Arkansas and UAM confused?  Just seems strange, unnecessary, and kinda' dopey.

Obvious some little tit for tat going on amongst some ADG staff. RD posted an email address for those wishing to bring it up with his editors/higher ups.

I think they should have to say "The FLAGSHIP CAMPUS of the University of Arkansas system...at Fayetteville".   ;)

No, they are calling them UALR, although they had branded their athletics as "Little Rock".

It's stupid. Tennessee is technically The University of Tennessee at Knoxville. As there is a UT Martin and Chattanooga.

But they call it Tennessee. As we should be Arkansas

It is just the University of Arkansas. The other schools are offshoots of that university. The flagship school needs no locational marker unless the offspring begin to rival the parent (UC Davis, UC Berkley, UCSD, etc...).

There are a LOT of University "systems" similar to the University of Arkansas system with multiple campuses. Most have one larger "flagship" or "main" campus. The flagship campus population might not always be the largest though. Case in point UCLA is larger than UC Berkeley but Berkeley is considered the "flagship" campus. The University of California system is also comprised of 10 campuses.

Maybe one of the higher ups of the Democrap is a Texas University in Austin grad.

The news director of KARK is a shorthorn so it wouldn't surprise me.

Ever since the guys from from Hawg Illustrated took over whole hog sports it gone down hill quickly. Ending the comments under the articles was a horrible idea because they don't give a direct link in message board  to the actual article in order to have a comment about the article. I also feel like most of the articles are cheerleader fluff piece in order to please Jeff Long in allowing them access  and less real substance like what Davenport writes or what Mike Irwin tells us what is really going on behind the scenes on the radio or on hogville.

You are complaining about not being able to comment on the article?

They did this same thing in the late 80s when the media was pushing for the Hogs to play Arkansas State and UALR in basketball.  All of the ADG articles referred to us as "UAF".  Once the Hogs won the NCAAT, they accepted the status quo and moved on.

Has nothing to do with political correctness.

Also, almost every other school where @            applies also does that. Academically, you often hear about UT-Knoxville. When talking about the university as a whole, I always say UC-Boulder. UNC is often referred to as UNC-Chapel Hill, and so on and so forth. UM-Ann Arbor...UW-Madison, UT-Austin, etc...

Sports are one of the few areas where you don't see the city distinction since it is rare for two schools in the same university system to have teams in the same division/conversation.

No big deal. Just like the University of Texas at Austin, University Of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, University of Mississippi at Oxford, University of Georgia at Athens, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, the University of Oklahoma at Norman, or the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. I would expect our glorious sportswriters to make the change on them asap.

Just because you say it doesn't mean most do. I believe most do not say the city name for any "main" or "flagship" university.

Doesn't make any difference...most ADG readers are just other sports journalists anyway.  Apparently they need the help identifying where the campus is.  Erin Andrews thinks we are in Arizona.
