One game doesn't define a program. But two?

Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long remarked on last Saturday's Razorback loss to ULM during a ceremony Friday for the Hogs' new football facility. Stephens Media passes along his quote:

“One game does not make a season. One game does not define a program. One game does not indicate the success or failure of a program. One game does not cause me to doubt the direction of our athletic program. With your help we are building a program that can compete year-in and year-out with the very best in this conference and in this nation. Six years running the national championship in football has come from this conference. We’ll be successful. We'll not be deterred. We'll not be discouraged and make no mistake about it, the future of the University of Arkansas Razorback athletics is very, very bright.”

I still like Coach John L. Smith's reported statement that, if ULM can beat the University of Arkansas, why can't UA beat Alabama?

No game in any sport is worth jeopardizing the long-term health of a player, BTW.

WPS.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
