Hendrix to hit gridiron

It's official. Hendrix College will play football again. No date set. The administration has been lusting after this as a student-body builder.

Maybe the Hogs would consider re-establishing their old rivalry and special trains between Fayetteville and Conway. Arkansas State is too risky, I know. But the Warriors, for now at least, shouldn't pose a threat. Hendrix will play in Division III, where no athletic scholarships are offered.

From the looks of it, I'd say Rhodes in Memphis, by dint of proximity, seems the likeliest arch-rival.

ALSO: Arkansas Sports 360's account of the action includes comments from Hendrix trustee and former Hendrix football player Wm. R. Wilson Jr., a Perry County mule farmer who also works part-time at the federal building on Capitol Avenue. He played in the last Hendrix game, a squeaker over OBU in 1960, and makes the provocative suggestion that football players were smarter than the average student.

  • Democrat-Gazette editorial writers flunk on teacher law

    The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette editorial page's animus toward the Little Rock School District and its teachers' union has never been more apparent than in recent swipes tied to Education Commissioner Johnny Key's plan to waive the teacher fair dismissal law, particularly targeting 22 schools graded D and F on the state's test score-dependent grading system. It's tunnel vision, at best. Fake news is more like it.
