Re: “John Neal Rock&Roll wins round 5 of Musicians Showcase

John Neal rocks! Glad to see a veteran LR musician rewarded in this.

Re: “Hard times in Hogland

Happy Holidays, Jeff. Ha ha. I would guess the longtime folks who preceded the Long arrival and have lost their jobs, or have been reassigned to cleaning the latrines or anything well below their abilities as they fear for their future, are having a happy holiday these days, all sugar and spice, thanks to this guy.
Jeff Long is the kind of guy corporations bring in after they buy a business. Say, like when a major newspaper corp. buys a family-owned paper like, say the Gazette. Some jerk tool comes in, taking over for the longtime management everybody came to know and some to abhor for their good ol' boy ways, and clean out the deadwood and move other long-timers to jobs they hate and know they have to leave. They do this, tick everybody off, make a variety of really stupid moves, then peter-principle themselves on to something else, and then a guy you have halfway tolerate comes aboard to get it settled down.
That's Arkansas' athletic dept. The old regime was tired and needed to be retired, a guy with absolutely no connections to the place had to turn it upside down, and the next group will be easier to deal with.

Re: “On football, race and Little Rock

Panic fan, read the book before commenting. I know that it's on more than what happened 50 years ago. Nevertheless, what happened 50 years ago will always be in LR's history, sorry 'bout that. So will the South's Jim Crow history, slavery, and all that. It's what WE DO with the lessons from the past that will define us. Good thing we're not lynching people like we were in 1927 either. That's in the book, too. Arkansas and LR have an interesting history, to be sure. As for Central today, I wish the Tigers would learn to carry the rock again. 38-0 was Friday's score, Dogtowndiva, bad guys. Maybe it will turn around for the winningest program in Arkansas high school fb history.

Re: “The To-Do List, Sept. 9-12

Not a word on the Carbon Leaf show? Would have been nice for the Times to give it some pre-show notice for the first time this great Virginia band has come to Arkansas.

Re: “About those Hog uniforms ...

Hey Sister, Boise and of course Houston Dale Nutt may claim 5-6 in 1997, but that's thanks to a forfeit. Cal Davis' 66-10 romp over Houston Dale apparently was the result of an ineligible player, leading to a forfeit. So 4-7 became 5-6. Still a losing record, of course. But Dale will do anything to improve that mark.
He's probably trying to see if the Heisman committee will make Reggie Bush forfeit USC's 70-17 win over the Hogs in 2005, since the NCAA only made USC "vacate" the wins, not forfeit them.

Re: “Boozman plays Hog card

I remember the great John Boozman. Yeah, John Boozman, quarterbackin' man. That was a tough day for all of us when Boozman went down against LSU and probably cost Frank Broyles a national championship. But boy could that Boozman pass the buck, er, I mean ball with the best of them.
Yeah, Razorback hero John Boozman, who learn so much on that football field and gave us such great memories.
Wait, I'm thinking about Jon Brittenum.
Never mind ....

Re: “What if it had been a Hog hat?

Cue the Eric Clapton music: "You can leave your hat on...."
