Title: Pettway visiting or not
Post by: hogfan71 on January 30, 2015, 07:28:39 pm
Is Pettway visiting this weekend and if not do we have anything to worry about on signing day with him not signing with us?

Playing hoops. He'll visit after signing day.

Thanks. Does he still plan to sign on signing day or wait until after his visit?

They were Calling the Hogs.  That "Club" area looks pretty legit for a smaller school in Arkansas.

Curious to know, how many high school games across Arkansas call the Hogs?  Or is this more of an occurance when Coach shows up?

I've never been to a high school game where they Call the Hogs.
I'm sure it was because Coach B was there.

For some reason, our student section at Jonesboro has been calling them at games, I think it's because a lot of them are attending next year.

I think it's a common event whether it is in AR or around the world where a group of Hog fans get together.  I've seen it in TN, TX, LA and in Germany.  Being a Razorback is like being in a brotherhood.  When the brotherhood meet, they call the Hogs.

I was on a tour bus in Alaska. We made a stop at a particular scenic place in the road and the driver...a 20'ish young lady...asked, "Does anybody want to call the Hogs!?"

You don't have to ask ME twice!

My daughters cringed, knowing what was coming.

The rest of the bus were like tennis fans, with necks snapping between me...and the driver (who was now calling 'em with me)...and back.

Turns out, she graduated the year before and took a touring gig in Alaska before chasing her career.

I was in the Bahamas in the late 90s , looked across the bar seen a guy wearing a Corliss Williamson basketball jersey , so I bought him a drink , from one HOG fan to another is what the bartender told him . So, he comes over and is actually from the Bahamas and had a very distinctive accent , he thanked me for the drink , but wanted to ask me for a favor , I said what was it , he said he loves the HOGS and has never called the HOGS the right way , can you help me , I said most definitely , after calling the HOGS , he was a friend of the bar owner and I can say that the drinks just kept coming !!!

Not sure if you are screwing with us or not here, only one of the greatest traditions in college athletics. I have called the Hogs in Saudi during desert storm before and during tournament games in 91, talk about goose bumps! However it was not all sunshine and daffodils we were embedded with a unit from Kansas :puke:

This has either got to be a joke or you are a troll of the highest order! Calling the Hogs was voted, on College Sports Nation XM 91, as the number 1 tradition in all of college sports! They poll every year now, but the Hog Call was the winner of the first ever poll! Beating the likes of burning couches at West Virginia, Howard's Rock at Clemson, Army vs Navy, Sooner Schooner, Bevo, A&M Yell Leaders AND 12Th Man, script Ohio,  just to name a few.
