getting rid of slobbin hog should have got him fired. just another example of him not understanding the culture here. and he never wanted to learn about it.

One of the great ironies of his time here was the removal of the slobbering hog but the continued use of the old "ARKANSAS" and "RAZORBACKS" fonts in the football endzones. With as much hoopla as he generated for that new font, it's never been repainted on the endzones.

No, not negated. Slobberin' Hog was iconic. It was the way in which Razorback basketball was played. He also took the option away from the baseball team to have characteristic and traditional baseball uniforms in favor of his trademarked crap font. If we can have variation in colors that aren't part of the U of A color scheme we should be able to have a different font that actually has been traditional at U of A.

Im pretty sure Slobbering Hog, after being released from the hardwoods, collided with Popcorn Hog and they destroyed themselves in a matter/anti-matter fashion.

I've been on the natural grass at Kyle Field in College Station and it's pristine.  As a former athlete, I would 100% prefer that to turf.  Problem is, it's super expensive to keep it that way for 7 or 8 games.

It is known.

Jeff Long did get rid of popcorn hog. He has two more heís working on getting right now.  Not going to tell you their names but Iíll give you a hint:

_eltaboy

Kenn_forAD

If you can figure out who Iím talking to then thatís fine.  Those with wisdom probably can apply some of that wisdom and figure out this riddle.  If youíre a real dumba$$ then you might not be able to figure it out. 

Heís keeping a dossier on both.  In fact he brought the dossiers to the BOT meeting yesterday but didnít get in there to share his findings in these two rabble rousers. 

Kong may go down...but some of you are going with him.

Arkansas has four iconic representations of the Razorbacks brand - the Hog call, the fight song, the cardinal (and its slight variations, with emphasis on slight), and the running razorback logo. All four transcend generations and are institutional. 

Attempting to force logos and traditions on a century old fanbase is the height of arrogance.

Disagree on how many iconic representations we have.  We also have the big Razorback helmet on the three wheeler, jelly sandwiches halftime tradition, Tom penders wondering around aimlessly in the bowels of barn hill arena in a phantom of opera kind of way (a well tanned phantom of the opera), and forest city joe, the very definition of iconic representation when it comes to message boards and call in showns.

While the removal of Popcorn hog was one of his greatest achievements, they historic amount of negative karma that was placed upon the basketball program due to the removal of Sloberin' Hog, can only be compensated for by bringing Slobberin' Hog back.  Nothing else will ever remove or lighten the dark cloud.
