Ho-Hum...Another Hall of Fame for Frank

Posted By on Wed, May 14, 2008 at 1:04 PM

"Hi, my name is Frank (some call me 'Frank of the Ozarks'). I'm mostly retired now, do a little consulting every now and then. Over the years, my hobbies have included raising jaw-dropping amounts of money to build world-class facilities for the University of Arkansas athletic teams, going to the Masters every year, meddlin' with the Razorback football program, feuding with Nolan Richardson, and - oh yeah - getting inducted into Halls of Fame."

If you haven't heard, Frank Broyles will be inducted into his ninth Hall of Fame in early June, when he enters the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Hall of Fame. Love him or hate him, the honor is richly deserved. In addition to engineering the move from the SWC to the SEC and overseeing the construction of a number of top-notch facilities, Broyles' resume includes the following items, courtesy of Bob Holt of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

"Broyles was Arkansas’ athletic director from 1973-2007 and oversaw a program that won 43 national titles (42 in cross country and track and field, one in basketball ), won 57 championships in the Southwest Conference and 48 SEC championships, and played in 22 bowl games."

Congrats, Mr. Broyles. The first Jägerbomb is on us.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
