Wednesday: An open line and video report

Posted By on Wed, Sep 7, 2016 at 3:22 PM


Here's the open line and the daily video. Also, unsurprising stadium news:

* STADIUM EXPANSION: As expected, a committee of the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees approved a $120 million bond issue for a Razorback Stadium expansion that will cost $226 million counting interest on the bonds. Ticket sales, private contributions and other revenue streams to athletic and Razorback Foundation treasuries are to cover the rest. The full Board votes tomorrow. The stadium expansion was approved earlier in an 8-2 vote with Trustees David Pryor and Cliff Gibson voting no. Gibson voted no in the committee approval today, the Democrat-Gazette reported.
