We should be Playing Arkansas Today

Growing up that was the game I went to more than any other game because people didn’t want to go the day after thanksgiving.

frick A&M for trying to make us their Texas.

If we could just not play Arkansas all together anymore I’d be happy. Especially no longer on this day

I have been lamenting that game all day. I always looked forward to the day after Thanksgiving…not so much the opponent, but definitely the game!

Just because you are young and don’t know any better, doesn’t mean the rest of us want 1:30 Black Friday games.

Point proven.



LSU fans never felt that Arkansas was a true rival in football. Not a season ending, bitter rival. Just your typical SEC West division rival.

And we needed a last second FG to beat these bums. House needs to be unemployed no later than 8 am Sunday morning.

re: We should be Playing Arkansas Today
I feel like it's a very millennial opinion, but I do agree. this was our black friday game growing up.

But at the same time, I dgaf about Arkansas, I loved the game because it felt special being on black Friday where there's only a handful of games.

I'd honestly love bringing back Tulane and making it thanksgiving week. Especially if they stay good.

Arkansas was a forced game after they joined the conference.

As an alum since 72, I disagree. Once Tulane ended, the Ole Miss game was our only long time rival left. That Arkansas series had so many memorable games and neither team had any true rivals left until LSU and Bama really heated up but LSU would never take Auburn’s place.
So that left LSU - Arkansas. I personally loved those games the day after Thanksgiving.

frick twolame. If you play them they can start getting kids from you. You let that shite school stay where they are. Yeah I know they are winning in G5 but you don’t want them going to Big 12 or some other P5.

I loved Arkansas on Fridays. Would eat myself to a coma Thanksgiving, then get some Black Friday shopping in early that morning (online) while also watching crazy people shop on all the news channels, then watch the game at 11 am.
