I miss the MayDay era
« on: January 12, 2019, 06:20:28 pm »

This type of sloppy basketball would not be the norm. They had the cockiness and attitude to wipe any team out.

I think that 89-90 team may be my favorite team all-time. 30 win and a final four.

We heard it on a radio interview with Arlyn while we were driving to the game one night. He grew up in housing by the interstate in Memphis. He was scared of the trucks. His Mom started calling him Truck ... and it stuck. One of my favorite Hogs.

People seem to forget about this team, but I thought they would have given the Championship team a run for it's Money.  What an awesome combination of tenacity, grit, and swagger.  Those guys were also my favorite Razorback team!.  Lenzi Howell took off during the NCAA tournament that year.  The Final four was in Denver that year, and I really think the altitude had more of impact on them than, Duke, or Vegas?  The 1978 - 1979 were a very close second.  That Squad had some ballers also....

For my money, that's the best Hog team of all-time.   They just played in an era where the truly elite teams were some of the best of a 20 year period dating back to the end of the UCLA reign.

Stop with the past, donít you know we are not that program anymore.
Just be happy, we win more than we lose. Cause the program is better now than when heath/Pelphrey coached.

That is so true.  The 1978 - 79 team had returning starters from the Final Four Team.  I just hate the way they lost to Indiana State, if I remember correctly Coach Sutton didn't put Super Sid on Bird, until the Second Half, and he shut Bird down.  That god awful Travel call on U.S. Reed was heartbreaking!!!!.  I don't know, those 2 teams, I really think are the best in the history of Hog Basketball, no disrespect to the National Champions, but man, those 2 teams were amazing.......

Bird tripped Reed on that travel call.  Should have been called for a foul.  We win if that happens.

What's even crazier is the guy that hit the game winning shot, actually travelled.  That loss ranks right up there with the baseball team's "dropped" foul ball in regards to heartbreak for me as a die hard RAZORBACK FAN.....

Carl Nicks tripped U.S. Reed. Bird wasn't guarding Reed, or anyone else.

And it wasn't commonly called a travel by SWC officials when a player is tripped and gets back up, IIRC. 

I thought they bumped knees - not so much of a trip per se.

And Bob Heaton traveled his ass off.

I think we all miss the MayDay era...question is, does anyone in the athletic department miss it--or even remember it?

The best Hog basketball player nickname and reason given for it concerned "Boothead": Ron Brewer Sr.
Asked by the announcer for Raycom or Mizzlou or whoever was doing the Arkansas-UCLA sweet 16 game in Albuquerque in 1978 after the Hogs' big win why everyone called Ron Brewer "Boothead," Marvin Delph said, "'Cause his head is shaped like a boot." Words don't give it justice, you had to hear it delivered on air. Priceless.

Ah, I just remember it and us all screaming @ the TV.  Guess in my mind over the year I just substituted Bird as doing it.

At The Pit in Albuquerque. That particular round of interviews eventually included Boot's grandmother. She went on and on about stopping at Stuckeys.

My best friend's favorite team since we were little kids has been the Celtics.  So when Bird went there all was forgiven.  For me, it was my "favorite" team was the one playing Bird and the Celtics.

Yep, bent out of shape by the belief we're entitled to more, somehow, because we had great success in the distant past.  No, working for it is unacceptable;  building is unacceptable.   Instant gratification!  Now now now!
