You must have went to college in the 50's or something. Kids always find a way to do what they want. I knew guys that rented a home during the summer solely off donating plasma.

I was there for the Nolan days and the championship. I can't imagine the suffering these poor SOBs have endured. Let em wear their shark suits and go nuts.

WTH is going on up there. Sellout crazy crowd. Introducing Chad Morris. And then a bunch of student band idiots dressed up as sharks in blue and white?! Looks like Kentucky fans have taken over BWA.....

Don't know, don't care. The Bud was rockin.

Keep it up. Students are supposed to be weird. It was true when I was there. My wife and I literally laughed out loud. Help me out though. Someone was holding a sign with a graph. What was the graph charting?

Great job students!  That's what college sports is about. #ShArkansas is the kind of thing that can get some national attention if you play it up right. Maybe someone who doesn't like the blue will donate some basketball jerseys to wear over it or order some Red Shark Costumes....

I had a frat brother that would always so those medical lab tests for money. I guess he's fine now (53) but he lost all his hair at 23. I have no idea what drugs he tried out but didn't mind being a guinea pig.

Easy to pick out the uptight fans in this thread. The student section gets involved in an entertaining yet supportive fashion and yet many of you have complaints about it. Probably the same people who don't stand up. Good grief. Step outside your comfort zone and let loose occasionally. Some fresh air is always nice. Be supportive of the group of kids who came up with a fun idea which actually cost them a few bucks.

Sure, they can try to find a color variant that is more in line with our team.

However, as they ordered these from a distributor with short notice, I'm not entirely sure they had red and white shark costumes available, considering sharks generally aren't red.

Drug use has become rampant on campus.
I was a frosh there in '79 and well, it was the same thing then...well maybe a few different drugs (Rorer 714 was still in production), but that's all...its called having a good time while you can because when you get into the 'real world' one must conform

ad: speaking of drugs and how popular Rorer 714, aka quaaludes were at the time, a guy in our pledge class name was Trey....he dressed up at a Halloween function that we had with the KAT house dressed as a round pill with Rorer 714 out fit around his body thus TREYLUDE, brilliant idea....great days...I left those things alone though...a little fire and brew was enough for me

The kids spent their own money. For those who don't like the color, chip in and order 100 red and cardinal shark costumes. I hear that the wholesaler is offering volume discounts.

Way to go kids! Please lead us old folks who have forgotten how to be crazy and impulsive in showing our support for YOUR team.

I'm sitting here on my couch literally cracking up laughing at the idea that you guys got together and found a place to buy all these outfits, got a good deal, spent $40 a piece or whatever you said, and then showed up the game with literally a handwritten sign with the word "SHARKANSAS" scrawled on it, waving it around.

hahaha I LOVE IT

I think the last time I saw something so absurdly funny related to Arkansas sports was back when gameday was here for the Tennessee game and someone in the crowd had a sign that said "More Like Awesomesas."

Thought it was pretty catchy myself. Instead of complainig, commend them for bringing the excitement. Someone with an alterations shop or two should come up with the pattern, do them in our colors and give to those students. Hell, we here in Hogville could take up a collection to off-set some of the costs.

LOL.  That was turrible.  Think it was, "Who's she?" tho.  Even during the 90's championship seasons, those signs elicited a bit of a groan from the student section.

Go to walmart.  Buy some red fabric dye.  Take one costume and do a test run to see how it turns out.  could ruin it.  Could look awesome.  Just a thought.

I'm always looking for good luck, and if this helps with that then wear them to every game all season.

At least noone we face are named the sharks, not many teams are.

That building has needed some energy for a while now.
