I've always wondered how they do this.

The mowers have rollers behind or in front of the blades that mash the grass down. The lines in the outfield that are lighter green have been mashed down away from you and when they make a return pass it mashes down the opposite direction creating a shadowing effect that looks darker. Would look opposite if you were looking in from the outfield.

You can do a homemade job to a push mower. Tie a heavy pipe behind the mower and and will give you a sharpe looking striped yard.

What year did this Cedric Houston play for LSU
Sorry, I meant Cedric Harris. I know the Ashdown baseball coach and Arkansas had no shot at Jaden and they knew it. Hill did take a visit to Arkansas as a courtesy visit because it was his home state. Cedric had him LSU all the way, so LSU did not STEAL a player from Arkansas.

Arkadelphia question
« Reply #21908 on: May 20, 2019, 08:01:42 pm »

Sorry, not a recruiting question, well, not UA. I am bringing a group of players to camp at Ouachita Baptist Friday night and they will camp at Henderson St on Sat.  Since the camps are back to back and in the same city, we have decided to stay the night in Arkadelphia.  Can anyone give me recommendations on cheaper/clean hotel in Arkadelphia.   Our school doesn't pay for these kinds of things, so this old coach is footing the bill.   GAs, food, camp fees and 4 hotel rooms kind of adds up.  I know the good ole internet I can google hotels, but was wondering if anyone here might have and hookups or recommendations. Coming in from Texas.

Thanks

Since the semester is over, won't Henderson or Ouachita provide dorm space at a very reduced rate?  Kids can bring their bedrolls.

You might be coming in the Caddo Valley Arkadelphia area at a bad time, with Memorial day weekend coming up people will be flocking to Degray Lake and I was there Sunday afternoon, Lake is near perfect, so if the weather stays rain free places might get a little pricey.  Just my take.

Malvern is about 20 miles further east and they have a couple of hotels. Benton/Bryant are about 40 miles east, but itís all interstate so itís about a 30 minute drive.

I know a handsome young fella from DQ who used to hit golf balls from behind newberry into OBUs campus to listen to the sound the balls made hitting stuff.  Thatís a treat.

Also the VFW in caddo valley appreciates your business.

 If you contact the AD at each school they will be fighting to host your team for free. As a OBU alumn trust me... ;) Those guys have been trying to 1/up each other for over a century...

My guys had a great time at both Camps.  I was amazed at the proximity both schools were to each other. I was told they were across the street from each other, but I had no idea that they actually were. Could see one stadium from the other.  Ended up taking 6 kids.  My 3 kids that are class of 2020 were all offered by both schools.  All 3 have higher than 3.5 GPA's so add that to their football skills, it was not hard for both staffs to offer.  The also loved my 2021 kids, but D2 only orries about 1 class at a time.  One of my 2021 kids already has a couple of D1 offers, but just wanted to come compete with his teammates.

Nice area in Arkadelphia, looks like there are building a new football stadium, maybe high school also, road was blocked so i couldnt get all the way down to see.

Thanks for the recommendations

Did you happen to drive on down to Caddo Valley and out on Scenic 7 to DeGray Lake?  The view of driving across the dike at near sunset should be used as a recruiting tool on either of those Colleges brochures.   One of the best lake views in the country.

How is the food at Baum? Are the food offerings pretty traditional concession fare?

If you can't be happy about the food at Baum, you probably shouldn't eat at sporting events.  I always get the tacos.

I havenít been to a game at Ole Miss since they finished their expansion project. Does anybody know whether Section S and the areas around it are still for visitors? Iím pretty sure thatís where I sat the last time I saw the Hogs play there.

Not sure where visitors start the game but after halftime, you'll be able to pick any seat you want - as the Grove means way more to them than the game.

Last time I was there during Hunter Heave half visitors were behind end zone and others at opposite end in corner. No real bad seats there actually as not huge stadium.

I never liked those end zone seats and never stayed there. East side lower section, as far south as you can go is the good hog area. Usually you can just walk around there and find a seat.

Last time I was there was the Henry Heave game as well and sat in the end zone, but it looks like with the expansion the end zone is for students now. Looks like K, S, S1, a part of R, and a part of S11 are for visitors now.
