They should dress out a top notch high school team in Razorback uniforms to play their opponents; they could come out with more wins than what's happening now.

Coastal Carolina may be the assurance they win three games this year.

We get it. Arkansas will never have the talent other SEC schools can recruit.
We get it. Arkansas has abandoned central Arkansas in favor of the latte crowd in the NW Arkansas.
We get it. Jack up the ticket prices.
We get it. BB ball may work in Wisconsin but not here in the south.
BUT...can't we at least have a football team that LOOKS like Razorbacks instead of one dressed out in some funeral procession colors. There MIGHT be some good ole boys left in this state that want to he Hogs and wear the REAL colors.
Oh what the hell; this team and its coaches are not worthy of Razorback Red. So continue to wear whatever colors suits them. How about black and blue. Pretty symbolic of the beating they will continue to experience.

If y'all are so hung up on rooting for a team from Arkansas, there are other options.

Unless they run the table, Bert's gone. And who was the idiot who faked the injury before the TD run only to have to get up immediately during the play and have to run toward the ball carrier? Prototypical Razorback.

" there are other options."

Indeed. My allegiance lies elsewhere. But if I want to talk sports to anyone in Arkansas, I'm relegated to the hogs.

Why don't they play Ar STATE in Little Rock each year.They could increase ticket prices and give the increase to Childrens Hospital. Everyone wins.

This team has problems that relates to a lack of focus on the task at hand. Too many false starts, blocks in the back, interfering with with a punt return, and the fake injury was unforgivable. There is a lack of concentration as well as execution. The talent level may not be up to par with most of the other SEC teams but it is much better than what they are showing on the field.

That 100 yard KO return should have been called back, there were TWO blocks in the back! The one at the tail end of the run was especially blatant. All I can say is thank you, hapless Hogs. I started the season with $100 bet on the first game and have been parlaying it ever since. So basically I've doubled my money betting AGAINST the hapless Hogs every game! You do the math. Ole Piss game may be difficult since they lost Shea for the season. But I have faith in the hapless Hogs not letting me down!!

It's one thing to lose but to be embarrassed like that is really hard to accept.

Under Jeff Long the Razorbacks are returning to the popularity of the pre Frank Broyles era. There was a time when the Hogs were not even on Saturday radio.....
