Maybe this can evolve into the War Memorial game and Fayetteville gets the Mizzou game back at some point.


Playing UCA is better preparation for our SEC schedule than playing folks like Alcorn State and/or Arkansas State, Tennessee Tech, Missouri State, etc.

the gap between UA and UCA in football is huge. Wouldn't be interesting after the first series when everyone sees the mismatch. I saw UCA play in Jonesboro a couple years ago and UCA's sideline looked tiny compared to A-state.

I do think it would be fun to play stAte sometime. I think this state will forever be Hog country. There isn't everything to lose like people think.

  • Hogs fan, and I don't do bandwagon.

Why not Arkansas State?

We're not talking about playing a G5 team, we're talking about playing an FCS team.

And... using A-State fans logic here... "if Hogs are going to play an FCS team, we might as well play an Arkansas FCS team, and keep the money in-state"

I'd be fine with playing UCA at War Memorial every year.  Especially at the beginning of the season.  It would be a good "practice" game, and LMAOOOOOOO it would piss off the A-State fans something proper

Using that logic, we would be better off bussing UCA to Tuscaloosa or Gainesville or Stillwater and bringing back their money to the state.

UCA also has a Defensive Back named Leandre Rucks from Strong, Arkansas who is 6'6".

I don't know how Cornelius (5"11"), Jones (6'1"), Stewart (5'11") and Nance (6'0") would fare against a 6'6" DB.

Martin (6'4") would be a better match-up against that type of length DB.

I'd rather play arkansas state in a home and home every year than play our "home" games against mu in WMS.   We'd make more money and get that recruiting weekend back every other year.  Both stadiums would be sold out.

Rucks might be a Safety for them and not a Cornerback.

In general Wide Receivers don't just "blow by" Safeties.  For a WR to get behind a Safety it usually requires a Safety to take a bad angle, or for a Safety to take an incorrect assignment.

I would agree to this after next year. From 2012 to 2017, UCA probably would have came close or would have beaten Arkansas. They were ranked higher than North Dakota State last year heading into the playoffs. 2012 they reached #6 and would have given smiley issues.

I think playing UCA and Astate would be better than playing Alcorn, Texas St, NMSU, FAMU etc. You have the same thing to gain playing all of them so why not? The other SEC schools do.

Arkansas would play their home game of the series in Fayetteville.

Arkansas State would opt to play their end of the home and home at War Memorial Stadium.  Of course State would have to pay the rental fee for WMS.

Both would likely sell out, very predominantly with Razorback fans.

Thatís ok, the new state will be Northwest Mississippi.  It will just be a coincidence that another JUCO of the same name resides in another state.  Kind of like Pittsburgh State University in Kansas.

Change it to ASU and I'm in.  I'm not a fan of either school, but playing UCA would be embarrassing, and probably inappropriate, since there may soon be a ban on playing FCS schools.  This game would excite many people about the game in WMS and Arkansas could play all SEC games in DWRRS.
