Calling the Hogs in Blytheville

Posted By on Sat, Jan 19, 2013 at 6:36 AM

HOG CALLING: Blytheville newspaper heralds Hogs 1960 visit.

Nice piece of sportts history in Sporting Life Arkansas by Evan Demirel pegged to today's Razorback basketball game with Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss.

In 1960 and 1962, the Hogs played Ole Miss at Blytheville. Yes, Blytheville, after a cross-state bus run that included a ferry crossing one year. Blytheville had a newish 3,200-seat gym, described as a "Taj Mahal" for the area between St. Louis and Memphis.
