According to the Baton Rouge paper, A&M vs. LSU will happen Thanksgiving day. Arkansas vs. LSU moves to middle of the season.

Thanks SEC.  Can't wait for those years when we play Bama and LSU on back to back weeks.  We better get something big out of this.

I heard last fall that this [letting A&M have LSU for Thanksgiving] was A&M's price for agreeing to play us in Dallas. They wanted to keep it home and home. It was just a rumor from some A&M folks though, so I didn't believe it.

The logical thing would be Missouri vs. Arkansas that weekend. I don't trust logic to rule the day though.

I'm not sure who else it would be.  Everyone else already has a traditional rival for that week.

I heard the same rumor.  I figured ATM's price for agreeing to play us in Dallas was the price agreed to in our ten year contract with them.

Here's to hoping both teams have 2-3 losses at that point next season.

I hope Long at least got his two cents in. We have enough obstacles when it comes to trying to win the SEC. Slive is creating another one by pulling that national tv game rug out from under us. Maybe we'll be playing Bama or another upper SEC team on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Playing a&m at the palace in Dallas is a nice consolation prize and I hope it will turn out to have a more positive impact on our recruiting than the lsu game. 

That Friday time slot will be difficult to replace from the standpoint of national exposure though.

Who said "Winning takes care of Everything" ?

I think that applies here and had we won more games in the past we probably wouldn't be sucking hind tit with the SEC brass right now.

We can change that by winning.

I'm a little bitter just because I love the atmosphere for this game. I always looking forward to this game in November. It's just become tradition. Whatever. It's not like the fans' opinions matter anymore.

A lot of people "called" it. It was talked about quite extensively when A&M joined the conference and when that foofarah was happening about keeping A&M-UA in Dallas.

The good thing is going to LSU and LSU coming to Fayetteville on a weekend with students on campus.   Unless the game is the weekend before Thanksgiving, you will have a real campus atmosphere.   if it is the weekend before Thanksgiving, some students will leave early.    Baton Rouge and Fayetteville will be a lot better for this game.  Better road trip and Fayetteville will rock when LSU comes to town.   

Losing the tradition we are used to sucks, but LSU weekend on campus will be much better, IMO.    Making a road trip to BR, will be a must too.

Stupid Tiggers. As soon as the University of Texas at Austin gets their head out of their tail and realizes they need to play A&M again, A&M/UT will be on Thanksgiving weekend, and LSU will be crying.

I have always used this logic as well. 
If you (school or state) aren't part of the deep south dumb*** old school, they (people involved with the sec) will do everything to make you look stupid and make your life harder.  That's fine though, we will keep building Wal-Mart stores in their backyards.  And what makes this even worse is the new guy (ATM) comes in and gets catered to like royalty.  Hell, even usce has gotten great hype for the last 5 years or 6 years and they usually get pounded by Arkansas, but you won't hear about it outside of Arkansas.  Now don't get me wrong, I love the money that the sec brings to our program and seeing our teams play against the best competition, but maybe it's time mizzou takes over the role of the "red-headed step child."

Good!

I loved the rivalry with LSU, but if they'd rather play A&M on Thanksgiving weekend, then let 'em. This seems like a losing battle and one that would make Arkansas look quite petty.

Besides, I'm sick of hearing corndogs say they don't consider it a rivalry. I'd rather play a team that wants to play us, like Missouri. Maybe we could play the game in St. Louis or KC every year for recruiting purposes?

When it happens, I hope no one still considers it a rivalry. It would provide a perfect opportunity to get out of this "forced rivalry", as everyone calls it. LSU fans never considered it a rivalry, anyway.

I'd rather just stomp their arse each year and call it just another game.

Wow... we get stuck with Mizzou, in some game that is completely meaningless, and will be relegated to TruTV os some sh$& like that.

Unbelievable. This is the kind of trash that I knew what going to happen with the expansion, and the exact reason that if it WAS going to happen I wanted it to be two teams I actually enjoyed watching or had some interest in playing.

The HOGS are "getting the boot" by the SEC! What is funny here is that A&M will not be some great power in this conference!  LSU will kick their tails for years after Sumlin gets over his current level of talent that he WILL NOT be able to maintain!

You are asking a lot out of those longhorns to pull their heads outta der azzes.  Deloss would have to kick the bucket first.

We now play Mizzou that weekend. Big f***ing deal. I'll take that easy W knowing that we will have a yearly match in Dallas vs A&M and the fact that Alabama is no longer our first game on the sec schedule.  Now I enjoyed beating the piss out of South Carolina with or without Spurrier throwing visors around, but that game never developed into a rivalry.  Mizzou could, let's give it a shot and let's keep that Friday afternoon slot on Thanksgiving weekend too.

WPS and all hail CBB.

TV influenced it too. 

Really, you are making Jeff Long the only hope and savour for the hogs?

I'm not too concerned about the jacked up 6-1-1 schedule.  I'll wait until the D4 thing gets settled then see our conference schedule is shaping out before crying to Jeff Long about a raw deal.

Exactly, man. We don't get LSU at the end of the year anymore. Alabama is suddenly no longer the conference opener. LSU and Arkansas first played in 1901, but we weren't yearly opponents until we joined the SEC, and the stupid Golden Boot thing has only been around since 1996. In my eyes, the "rivalry" is just as manufactured as this new Missouri rivalry, and I'm afraid LSU feels the same way about us as Texas as long they're having to play Florida every year as the cross-divisional, not to mention worrying about Alabama like the rest of the SEC West. I suppose I COULD buy this whole "but we're losing exposure!" bit, but it's not like we've killed it in recruiting previously, and I'm betting our recruiting is the best we've ever seen in the age of recruiting services under Bielema, regardless of where the LSU game is placed on the schedule. Until I see tangible evidence this move has affected us in a way that's decidedly negative, I'm going to focus on the positives, which are more immediately noticeable.

Until Missouri decides to get a coach who's worth being a millionaire, this should be an easy win for Arkansas nine out of ten years. And luckily for us, that tenth year is this year and we're not playing them. It's a conference game and we play in the SEC, it's not like we're going to get flack for "scheduling" a weaker opponent like Missouri. We love to moan about how tough our schedule always is. Well, here's a bit of alleviation. We're dropping South Carolina, who's suddenly relevant for the first time in literally ever, and now we get to end the season on a positive note more frequently.

Glad to find a like mind on this thread Zero.


Lol It has been known since A&M joined the conference, they would take our spot in the LSU game. Why are so many of you shocked by this?

All I want is the yearly national exposure that Friday game gives us.  That is all.  And an utter beat down on Mizzou.

What is so great about playing A&M in Dallas? Once you've been to Jerry World once...you realize the sound is horrible, the ticket prices are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE and other than it being in Dallas and watching the game on the video screen rather than on the field....I'd much rather play the game on-campus.

And I live about 10 miles from Jerry World....

John, it's about performance, not expansion.

No...it is all about the number of TV viewers in the state of Texas.

Blatant falsehood!  You can't go to Silver Dollar City too many times! 8)

I like you Albert but can't disagree more with this!
