Here it is from what I consider myself to be a sane Arkansas fan.

The Hogs had a horrible season , many reasons led up to it , the loss of a great coach who just happen to be a horrible person , injuries to players at inopportune times and above all lack of leadership on the field and from the AD. I make no bones about it , the season was horrible , Im glad its over , Im glad we are moving on, Im proud to be a fan win or lose.

Arkansas State has had two really good seasons , sure they are in the Sun Belt , but to win your conference two years in a row is a feat a lot of team have never done. They are playing their level of talent week in and week out and winning right now , that is commendable. You got hosed by Gus , not really for leaving per say , but for leaving after promising that he would never do it , well I guess all coaches say that , but he really sold it , he came in , had a heck of a season and says he left you at a higher level , you won your conference and are going to the same bowl game , sounds like the same level to me.

I want to be able to root for ASU , I really do, but I get tired of hearing about how Arkansas will not play you , is it right? Im not to say , would I like to see the two teams play at War Memorial every year , heck yeah it would be fun. What bothers me though is I hear the local yocal radio and admin from ASU saying they do not want Hog fans at their games , they say that they do not need us there , well I take that to heart and do not go. Then I hear the ASU fans laughing at the Hogs misfortune , a little trash talk is good for the game , heck its what its all about , but when you cant be happy for your own team long enough to stop worrying about Arkansas then its riducules.

As far as Arkansas fans go , I think the people on here are mostly idiots , they want to talk about how you are in the Sunbelt , CUSA didtn want you , oh you lost your coach , oh we are better , its a little low class and uncalled for. The ones who get on here and say ASU sucks or ASU is the little step brother need to step back and see how this community has come together to support this team , I like it , I think its great and hope it continues and ASU grows and grows, but the classes fans who say classes things need to go

I guess its like this , a little good hearted trash talk is cool , but use some brains if you have them , enjoy your teams good times , no when to bow out and realize your team sucks , and enjoy the game people , because its just that a game played by kids who love what they are doing

I mostly agree with what you say. I have to say though, there is just as much trash talk coming from one side as the other. I, personally, would love to see both teams do well.

Its people like you who call yourself a Hog fan that make me sick , you are not a fan , you are a hateful and sad individual who stand for nothing in this world other than to make others mad. I almost feel sorry for you seeing that this is how you get your kicks , but I dont , I realize you are now and will forever be a low life.


I am a life long Hog fan , have been since I was born , will be the day I die , and its people like you who embarrass the fan base buy making us all seem to be as ignorant as you

I suppose that there is a finite probability that it will happen at some point in the future, but I wouldn't hold my breathe, if I were you.

It's going to take some real, tangible benefits directed at UA in order to reverse a policy that can be traced to John Barnhill (if it ain't broke, don't fix it) and an ASU administration that's willing to lose money (UA usually does not pay as much for their pay-for-play opponents as ASU has been accustomed to) in order to placate a fanbase that's only concerned about sizing themselves up against the Razorbacks.
