We don't need to talk about playing A-State until we are fielding teams capable of beating them.

This topic is gettin national play

http://collegefootballnews.com/2018/01/arkansas-razorbacks-arkansas-state-red-wolves-football-spring-game-sun-belt_heat

What topic? That blog (not news, but an opinion piece) is about a spring game between Arkansas and Arkansas State. I've never really heard that topic thrown around before.

Did you read the blog post?

Yep. Here's what it says on his bio:

a relentless provider of content for College Football News and A-State Fan Rules.

Nothing about that makes it "national" news or opinion. But not surprised it would be started on a thread by LRRandy.

sheesh. The topic of Arkansas playing A state has had numerous threads down through time on this forum. While the article is discussing a spring game it is still a discussion about the two teams playing.

And what makes you think I am "riled" up about what it says. You post stupid junk on here all the time. That's what riles me up. If it happens it happens. I won't lose any sleep over it. It's sports......not life.

The thing is though it has more to do with what some random ASU fan wants. Thus it should be on a different forum then that is devoted mostly to them. Maybe Seminole will let you help moderate that forum.

SB Nation is a "national website" wherein there are specific sub-sites and topics. Just like the one you posted.

Scared what could happen? A spring game between Arkansas and Arkansas State?! The horror!

Technically any U.S. website is a "national" website. Is College Football News a credited national media source? No. You linked a blog post, dummy. It's not complicated.

Frankly I have never had any interest in A State. Born a Razorback fan and 62 years later still one. Wearing my Razorback blazer today with it a little cool in Florida. Let us play them one time and maybe then A State would stop crying.

Not scared that it should happen, but from the Hogs perspective, there isnít one compelling reason to play the game.  The Hogs have absolutely no incentive to play the game. They have absolutely nothing to gain by playing them.  Iím sure someday the Wally Halls, Rick Fires, and the A-State fans of the world will get their wish.  In the grand scheme of things it doesnít matter, (as one poster duly noted, itís just a game) but Iíd druther not.  However, when Nebraska State plays Nebraska in football, then Iíll gladly start supporting the Hogs playing A-State in football, too.

We will just have to wait the boomer generation out when it comes to things like this.  The old money has dug in their heels on this and budging them from it would involve too much upset. 

I'm a Razorback fan for life, and I would love to play ASU in every sport, maybe not every year but often.  Even if we lost the game, we've had worse losses and survived. 

But the old money ain't getting younger and soon there will be a time when the AD doesn't run the program to please the dinosaurs.

This is a college sports message board and the subject falls within the rules of the board. Maybe it's just you that does not need to talk about the subject.

What a terrible opinion.

Not really. I can see the 2 Universities playing a football game against each other once a year. It would be in WMS with the 2 schools splitting the stadium and alternating home  and visitor designations. It would be called The Governor's Cup Classic and all proceeds would go toward the renovation and expansion of WMS. That rivalry would easily pack an 80,000 seat stadium. Once the expansion and renovation is complete and paid for, the teams would keep the money from the tickets they would sell with the stadium getting parking and concession money.

So now the Hogs have to give up a home date at least every other year to help pay to upgrade a stadium so they can play in it once a year?

They don't HAVE to do anything they don't want to. It was a suggestion.

It would be more than just one game so they wouldn't need to charge anywhere near that much.

Well letís see...what would increasing WMS nearly 50% cost?...$100,000,000, at least?
That might not be close.
Issue 20 year bonds at 3% with annual payments totaling over $6.5million?
80,000 seats...$83 per seat, per year for 20 games. Not factoring in concessions & parking for the game or stadium upkeep expenses for 20 years.

But no school is going to sacrifice the income from one game, much less foot the bill to renovate the Stateís stadium.

It would be more than just one game so they wouldn't need to charge anywhere near that much.

So they are going to play more than once a year..........Now I get it. All conference games for both schools every year is against each other.
