Was there ever any doubt?

Someone finally got this right.

Truthfully, the Razorbacks are pretty well liked outside of Arkansas by the average fan. I’ve always thought that has a lot to do with the mascot. And the Hog call. And the fight song. And the classic logo. All unique and consistent over generations.

You are right on all accounts plus there is one more reason we are well liked.  We've never been dominant enough for a anyone to hate us!

Sadly true.  Good enough to be known, but not good enough to be hated.

I almost added that people like to pull for the underdog, especially the underdog who occassionally becomes a giant killer. Arkansas football gets a lot of respect from college football fans old enough to remember the years before 2012. The Hogs probably get the least respect on Hogville, where they are often disrespected.

If you expect Arkansas football to be Alabama football, you’ll forever be disappointed.

The Razorback is the best mascot in college sports.

The Razorback is unique.  I'm so glad we aren't another Bulldog, Tiger, Wildcat, etc.  It's ferocious, nasty animal.  Our logo is outstanding also.

It will be interesting to see how much front facing Hog will show up on things now that Long is gone.

Not necessarily the hog logo I had in mind.  It doesn't bother me like some, but it gets way too much use for my taste.

That thing looks like slobbering Hog's tweaked out, retarded cousin.

There are definitely a couple that are forgettable on that timeline.  1930's Hogs are pretty bad.  Other than that, I think we are good.  Popcorn Hog was pretty terrible too and he's not on the list.  Pumbaa is in the conversation as well.

Current one is the best IMO.

The 1950's Razorback logo is perfect for baby Razorback gear.



I like this leaning hog for a secondary logo:

The leaning hog has always been my favorite. That one is great.

I agree on leaning Hog.  I'm not sure if that's because it was prominent when I was growing up in the 80's or what, but I have always loved that logo.

Did any of you receive a survey from the U of A regarding mascot styles and which you would like to see on certain types of apparel? They listed the popcorn Hog and several vintage ones. They also asked the question on what items would you like to see the forward facing Hog, if any.

I did.  I think it was in relation to the new store/online marketing deal:

The T-Rex Hog is awful....let it be gone.

The Hog on our helmets got a little meaner looking in Nutt's first few years. Sharper angles and a bit more scowl. I think that is what we should be sticking with. I will say, though, that the throwback cartoonish '64 Hog we wore a couple of years ago was dope.....
