re: Dallas Baptist is a small private School of 5,000 - spiderpig
DBU gave the Hogs all they wanted at Fayetteville in the regional final (4-3 win) last year. They're tough....

re: How does your school select its Board of Supervisors, Regents, Governors, etc.? - spiderpig
Arkansas' Board of Trustees is chosen by the governor. It's a little complicated because the 10 Trustees govern all five UA four-year campuses, the law and medical schools and a bunch of junior colleges, not just the main campus in Fayetteville, so student representation, for instance, is not feasib...

re: Sports you have not won a natty in - spiderpig
Arkansas: Baseball -- numerous CWS appearances, one natty runner-up. At some point I'd have to think DVH will win one. Just have to get to Omaha and then get hot (see Virginia last year). Women's Cross Country -- Have finished 2nd at NCAAs four different times. Just have to have it come togeth...

re: Handy chart for knowing who gets what seed in the SEC tourney - spiderpig
USCe is not guaranteed to be in the top 5 after losing to Georgia. If they lose tomorrow at Arkansas, they could drop as far as 8th, depending on whether Ole Miss and Georgia also win. If Arkansas, OM and UGA all win, UGA is the 5, OM the 6, Arkansas the 7 and USCe is 8th. The Chickens would be 1-3 ...

re: Mizzou Fans, Will Arkansas Become Your New Archrival? - spiderpig

re: Business $ Valuation of Football Programs - spiderpig
First variable that jumped out at me when I looked at that list is that the top 14 programs listed all have stadiums of 80K or greater capacity and pretty much sell them out. The exception to that is Wisconsin, which also has an 80K stadium but is below several programs with smaller stadiums. Ticket...

re: Arkansas fans, Little Rock? - spiderpig
There are three reasons we keep playing LSU in Little Rock. 1. As noted above, big-bucks boosters in Little Rock like Warren Stephens, who threatened to completely cut ties with UA if games were pulled out of WMS. 2. Whiny fans, not only in Little Rock but in areas south and east of LR, who pi...

re: Have you heard 1 instance of Mack Brown's - spiderpig
Oh, trust me, there are plenty of Texass fans who want to run Mack off. Although a lot more are focused on their OC as the scapegoat. A lot of them want Texas to go hire Gus from the Barners as the new OC. I think Gus is leaving the Barners, all right, but it will be as an HC somewhere....

re: Mississippi State about to be SCREWED by the bowl selections - spiderpig
FWIW, Stewart Mandel of SI.com, who generally seems to have good info on this stuff, projects MissSt to the Chick-Fil-A. He's got Arkansas in the Sugar, USCe in the Outback, Florida in the Gator, Georgia in the Liberty, Tennessee in Music City and Kentucky in Birmingham. But he also has LSU in the C...

re: South Carolina champs? - spiderpig
No, no, no. The SEC fix is to always protect the #1 team. They want that NC again. If Alabama had played well enough to be in the game in the fourth quarter, the refs would have made sure they won at Columbia in October. If it's close late, the flags will favor Allbarn. Count on it. In this case, th...

re: I consider cotton bowl more prestigious now that its in JerryWorld - spiderpig
I don't know about prestige, but IMO Cotton is more desirable as a destination playing in JerryWorld (and I've frozen my arse off in the old place on Jan. 1 more than once). If they ever add a fifth BCS bowl, I think Cotton would be a better candidate than Cap One or any other bowl. Then again, Cotto...

We've played in the Cap One twice and our crowd there was OK but not great. But I agree that we'd be very disappointed if Auburn chokes us out of the Sugar bid....
