Re: “Go Hogs. To Fayetteville? Pondering War Memorial's future.

As an alum, it's sad to me (but true) that we are losing the rest of the state's support for the short-term interest of financial gain on ticket sales. It will cost us dearly in the long run. One day we'll wake up and realize we've lost something very unique and special; the position of being THE team for an entire state! It's already occurring. I'm from north central Arkansas, and the UA used to be, as recently as 10 or 15 years ago, the preferred destination for most of our high school seniors. Not anymore. And you also very rarely saw anything other that Razorback license plates, decals, flags, etc. Again, not anymore. You are more likely to see ASU or UCA these days. And on game day - social media posts are just as likely to be Howl Yes as they are woo pig sooiee! Some of us have been screaming about this for years, to no avail. We have people running the program now that don't understand the history and tradition, and as a result, we're losing something very special. In the end, the program will suffer financially as well, as the support further erodes and drys up from everywhere other than NWA. Sad sad sad...
