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.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
