A thirtysomething Hog fan who has his name on Senior Walk just below the north tower of Old Main for an MA in English, Class of 1999. As a native Arkansan (from Crossett), I have been working on a Ph.D. in Hogology since the late seventies, early eighties, those being the years of my earliest sports memories. My dissertation director, Frank Broyles, said I can count my posts here as chapters in my dissertation, that is after I explained to him what a blog was. I do actually work in academia itself as an academic advisor to college students at Oklahoma State. I make it to Razorback football games when I can. Happiest outings of late, 10 Liberty Bowl vs ECU, 08 vs. LSU, 06 vs. Tennessee, 04 vs. Alabama, 03 Independence Bowl, 00 Cotton Bowl win over Texas. .

Doc and I didn't huddle on this one. It just so happens that the trivia question I have in mind for this week involves the 2002 Miracle on Markham. Doc related where he was for the game. As...

This Week's BIG Razorback Trivia Question

Did You Catch ESPN's Roundtable Last Night?


You don't take a serious walk outside these days unless the sun has just about met the horizon. That is what I did yesterday evening. When I came in from my walk it was after 9 PM Central and I...

Hogs - Flat As Nebraska Tonight


I am sitting here with the baseball game going into the bottom of the ninth. Three outs left. The Hogs need to get two home to keep the game going or three home to end it. But the past eight...

Razorback Football Trivia: The AP Poll Edition

Fashion Week in Fayetteville


Does the devil wear Prada or a hog? Is it the catwalk or the hogwalk? Is a football jersey considered ready to wear? Well, haha, I don't know if those questions are really being asked in...

Your First Razorback Trivia Question of the Summer


First, congratulations to the Diamond Hogs for advancing to the College World Series in dramatic fashion. I could only hear the game by radio, and I tell ya, my emotions hung on the voice...

Feel Good Movie Or Mayan Doom?


If you grew up with a grandfather, like mine, who liked to watch Hee-Haw, you might be able to recall the poor farmers on the show singing how if they didn't have bad luck, they would have no luck...

Some Good News For A Change: Hogs Win SEC Outdoor Championship


Admittedly, we are a football and basketball fan blog, with some attention paid to baseball. If we weren't such a bunch of masochists, I suppose, we would pay more attention to the track team,...

Some Razorback Trivia - Well, Just Because


I am looking forward to kicking off the summer of Razorback trivia in earnest once the baseball season comes to an end, which I hope is after a long stop in Omaha. But I had a good trivia question...
