Why is Arkansas hosting Ole Miss in L R ...
« on: September 16, 2018, 01:38:47 pm »

..... and Vandy in Fayetteville? 

Ole Miss will bring significantly more fans and probably generate more interest from the Arkansas fanbase than will Vandy.  Goodness, we only have 7,000 undergrad enrollment and not a significant number of alums in Arkansas. 

' just curious ...... and thanks!

You do realize Vandy has beaten the Hogs at Fayetteville before donít you?
Looks like they probably will again.

Yes we have won in Fayetteville and U A has beaten Vandy in Nashville .... but the point I should have 'better - stated' was Mississippi in Fayetteville; Vandy in Little Rock would probably sell more tickets for the U of A.

No clue who will win this year, but good luck to you the rest of the season!

The Ole Miss/Arkansas series has a history of Little Rock games.  For a while, this series was played in Little Rock and Jackson.

Thanks. I honestly believe IF Vandy would ever commit to facilities and such they have the potential to be another Stanford or Northwestern for the SEC. Great in academics and really good in athletics.

Yep. We were at the last game in Jackson when we played the last time there.

Was about to buy tickets from the ticket office on this one, and saw where they had jokingly put the face value of the ticket at $85.  See you on Stubhub!

haha!  Good question.  To focus on the big sports, everyone seems happy with basketball and baseball facilities.  Not sure the future of football facilities.
