2 things:

A&M can also tell recruits the same thing, exposure in DWF, etc, so it's a wash. And I would tap the breaks on calling that stadium the "finest football facility in the world". Jerry may think it is, but it has lot's of issues. People who live here know it's not all that.

First, Arkansas is the OUT of state school; we do and always have had a nice presence in DFW, and it is not all that far from Fayetteville.  But our presence there cannot compare to that of the Aggies, who probably have 10 times the alumni in the DFW area that we do.  Plus, their location is only a couple of hours from Dallas.  So - yes - they get the same things we do, but they ALREADY have a huge presence in DFW and are one of the cool in-state schools to go to.  We are not.  So we get more BENEFIT out of that exposure than they do.  How is that not obvious?

As for whether or not JerryWorld actually IS the finest Football facility in the world, in the perception of HS recruits (especially those we target), it unquestionably is the most prestigious. And that's all we care about.

I don't think you've got the right perspective about this, Delta.  This is not a big cash cow for Jerry; it is for us.  Well, let's put it this way; we make more money playing two games there than we would hosting a game in Fayetteville one year, then playing the return in College Station the next.  PLUS, we get all of the DFW area exposure and the prestige of playing in the finest football facility in the world every season - both of which are solid recruiting tools.

There's a reason we twisted A&M's arm to sign the extension when we acquiesced on letting them play LSU on Thanksgiving weekend.

This series at JerryWorld is all about what WE want.



Jerry gets all of the parking fees and concession money. That ain't exactly chicken feed.

I live two miles from it and I can assure you, as stadiums/arenas go, it is all that. It's a phenomenal facility.

It's still the Taj Mahal of sports venues, but I seriously doubt playing there one game a year will ever have any real impact on recruiting when nothing else does.
We can always hire Hugh Freeze to run our recruiting program. I hear he has some 'out of the pocketbook' ideas that will get you a top 5 recruiting class every year even though all you have to offer at Ole Miss is a gasoline station that has good catfish and a grove with trees that you walk through to the stadium. Sounds like catfish and trees makes the best players in the country 'come a runnin' to become a Rebel Black Bear.

How are the frog legs at the Calaveras Grill ???

Haven't had a bad item there yet. That said, haven't tried frog legs.

Nor have I tried them at White River Fish Market.

Now, the taco trucks can get pretty entertaining.

Hammett House in Claremore (suburb NE of Tulsa) serves calf fries and turkey fries. Didn't know turkeys were built well enough to have "fries". I have tried neither.

My grandmother, a true saint, died not knowing those calf brains were mountain oysters.  Nobody had the heart to tell her.  Bless her heart.

There are 50 mexican places better than Ted's in Tulsa.

North Tulsa has Stutt's and Wilson's BBQ and White River Fish Market. Nothing fancy, just good food.


Mr Taco on Lewis around 244 would be one of them.

This was 280 or 285, whatever the interstate on the coast side of town. The drives up to Napa and back were always pretty easy, I even ventured into Oakland once to say I'd been there.

You are as likely to see good T/A at a restaurant as you are at the Tulsa collection of strip joints. Better to sit at the bar at the Hard Rock Casino by yourself and see if you can attract a working girl. She might give you a coupon for the all-you-can-eat buffet when you finish upstairs with her.

I had a girl approach me at the River Spirit one night. She said she charged some rate for hair dressing services and gave me her number. I was keeping my hair in a buzz cut at the time.
