We moved to Northern Indiana 4 years ago. My in-laws are pretty evenly split between Indiana basketball and Purdue basketball, only a passing interest in Butler. Since moving here I have watched more of the Big Ten network than any southern boy should ever have to see, just gross.  Everyone pretty much loves Notre Dame football, even nastier. It is time for my vengeance!. Come on Hogs.

Enemy Checklist:

Friday 3/16/18 Beat Butler BB
Sunday 3/18/18 Beat Purdue BB (although Purdue losing in 1st round is tempting!)
Saturday 9/12/20 Beat ND FB
Saturday 10/4/25 Eh who am I kidding, no way ND doesn't pull out before the return game.

Not surprised. No Hogfan would be torn no matter who WE play. Just like I have been saying there are a lot of posters on this board who aren't Hogfans.

Whatís weird is I happened to watch Purdue more than other team outside the SEC this year and now we have a good chance to play them. If we can get past the bulldogs I think we can beat Purdue if we can get the game up tempo. Haas is good but canít run the floor, if we speed up the game we can neutralize him

Toured Bulter's campus last October. Hinkle Fieldhouse is amazing especially with the filming of "Hoosiers". Beautiful campus.

Take a quarter.  On one side, write Arkansas.  On the other, Purdue.  Now, flip it.  The one you want it to land on while in the air is where your true loyalty lies.

With me, I don't need no quarter.

You shouldn't be torn about anything if you're a Razorback fan from birth.

This is such a dumb statement. I went to school at the UA and grew up in Arkansas and recently moved back to Arkansas as an adult. It sounds like youíre probably in similar shoes. Of course weíre going to be straight up Arkansas fans.

This guy did not go to school at the U of A and grew up in Indiana. He moved here and came to love the hogs. Why on earth should that mean he must turn his back on his alma mater and home state?

You can look at this negatively or positively. Positive viewpoint is that you're certainly guaranteed a team in the Sweet 16; negative viewpoint is that two of your 3 teams will have to lose to each other in order to get there. It's strange how certain seedings affect people. Of course Butler and Purdue is a conundrum many fans will have, which is why the committee put them there.

Yes.  At least he saw the light after moving to Arkansas, and has become a Razorback fan (many stay with their original teams).  Give him credit for that!

Although my parents met at the U of A, and I was born in Fort Smith, I don't remember living anywhere but El Paso, where my folks moved when I was about 2 years old.  I was always a rabid Hog fan, but I ended up going to the local college, UTEP, for financial reasons.

That didn't stop me from rooting against them (UTEP) the two times we have faced them in football (1989 and 2010).  That said, there would at least be a pang of consideration should we run up against them in basketball.  Well, I would root for the Razorbacks, without a doubt.

But the difference here - and in this sport only - is that I learned to love basketball watching UTEP (actually, Texas Western at the time), not Arkansas.  In the middle 60's, when I was becoming aware of sports, Arkansas had no presence or recent history in hoops.  They were bottom feeders in the SWC, a conference that never made any noise in the NCAA tournament anyhow.

Meanwhile, Texas Western was a very good program under Don Haskins (The Bear), and were quite popular in El Paso.  Of course, most of you know that Nolan Richardson played for the Bear, and that his 1966 team won the National Championship by beating Kentucky in the finals (this was memorialized in the movie Glory Road a decade ago). 

I actually saw that team play in person; ironically, Arkansas came to town to play in the Holiday basketball tournament (Sun Carnival) that TWC hosted, and Dad took me to see the double header.  Arkansas lost to #4 Iowa, and the Miners (Texas Western) defeated Loyola-New Orleans.  The next night, Texas Western stunned Iowa, serving notice of what was to happen at the end of the season.  UTEP - as they became a year later - continued to have a very strong program through the time I graduated and moved to Dallas in 1976 - just as the Arkansas program was about to explode under Eddie Sutton.  That took my Hoops love to new heights . . . but I originally learned to love the game following Texas Western/UTEP. 

My point is that even though most everyone who posts here has legitimate "love" for the Hogs, there are many who also have legitimate, specific history with another team.  That doesn't make them any less of a Razorback fan.

My father graduated from Mizzou, I grew up going to Mizzou games from the time I was 5 till I was 13 or 14, and yet I still have been adorned in red for every Arkansas-Missouri game.

You know what they say, when momma calls, you come home.
