Bama Blasts The Razorbacks, Eight Straight For Florida Over Tennessee

Alabama 52 – Arkansas 0

1. Crimson Tide dominate Tyler Wilson-Less Razorbacks – haven’t loss an SEC opener since 1991.

2. Kevin Scarbinsky: “Put the greatest Razorbacks of all time in their prime on the same team, assemble a veritable Who’s Who of Hogs, and it still might not have been enough. Not against this Alabama team.”

3. “If there was one constant among the observers in the Razorback Stadium press box on Saturday, it was the opinion that John L. Smith is a nut.”

4. “There are nine games left and the most popular discussion, which probably began at halftime Saturday, is about who will be the next head coach of the Razorbacks.”

5. Wilson: “We’ve got a big game against Rutgers next week. I’m going to do everything in my power to be a part of it and be the starting quarterback to run out there on the field and get a win.”

6. Razorbacks have been outscored 79-10 since the QB’s injury.

8. “From that 7:33 mark of the third period until the final horn, the Vols totaled 35 yards of offense and no points while Florida piled up 311 yards and 24 points.”

9. Will Muschamp: “As the game wore on, I thought we were winning the line of scrimmage.”

10. Pat Dooley: ” I don’t know that I have ever heard a Tennessee fan base so confident before a game against Florida.”

11. John Adams: “The Gators surged. The Vols folded. The streak continued.”

12. Mike Bianchi: “Let’s not forget, the two coaches in this game, Dooley and UF’s Will Muschamp, came into Saturday with a combined 0-15 record against ranked teams. “

Auburn And Arkansas Finalize Football Schedules, Two Other SEC Schools Impacted

Two SEC schools finalized their 2012 football schedules yesterday and a third school will notice the difference:

 

* Auburn has placed an open date between its September 22nd game with LSU and its October 6th game with Arkansas.  Both games will be at Jordan-Hare Stadium, but bye week will allow the Tigers to rest up between the two huge SEC West showdowns.

* Arkansas has officially added Rutgers – now minus coach Greg Schiano — to its home schedule on September 22nd.  The Razorbacks will then play in New Jersey on Rutgers’ campus next September.  In addition, the Razorbacks are moving this year’s home game with LSU from Little Rock to Fayetteville for the first time since 1994.  An additional 20,000 tickets can be sold to the UA-LSU game at Razorback Stadium.  Arkansas’ game with Ole Miss will move from Fayetteville to Little Rock for the first time since the Hogs entered the SEC in 1992.

* The site of the Arkansas-Texas A&M contest is still up in the air at this point.  Arkansas wants to play the game in Arlington, Texas as planned, A&M wants the game at Kyle Field in College Station.

Little Rock Might Upgrade War Memorial Stadium To Keep Hog Football

The University of Arkansas is spending $40 million on a brand new football complex in Fayetteville.  The school is also planning to expand Razorback Stadium. 

People in Little Rock are paying attention.

Afraid they might lose the two games played annually by the Razorbacks at War Memorial Stadium, there’s now discussion to upgrade and expand the 63-year-old venue.  The school and the War Memorial Stadium Commission currently have a deal that runs through 2016.

Arkansas is the only school at the FBS level that plays multiple “home” games away from its campus each season.  As Bobby Petrino has improved the Razorback program, ticket demands have gone up.  And Razorback Stadium can seat about 22,000 more Hog fans than War Memorial Stadium.  For that reason, there’s already speculation that the season finale between Arkansas and LSU could be moved to Fayetteville this fall.

Obviously the folks in Little Rock can see the writing on the wall.

Arkansas Eyeing Stadium Expansion

We’ve written the following a number of times already (and we’ll continue to do so) — The SEC’s new television contracts will allow several schools to expand and upgrade their athletic facilities in the coming years.

Just last week, Arkansas unveiled plans for a new $25-$35 million football operations center.  But according to ArkansasNews.com, that’s not the only project being discussed in Fayetteville.

Arkansas AD Jeff Long told a touchdown club yesterday that part of UA’s master plan is an expansion project at Razorback Stadium.  The project — which is still in the discussion stage — would involve enclosing the north end zone.  Long said that would add 4,000 to 6,000 seats to the stadium.

Expect stadium expansion/upgrade talk to boom across the SEC thanks to the millions that are now pouring in from CBS and ESPN.
