    Sure seems like Eddie’s name should be up there too… maybe because I come from that era. Thoughts?

    • Roadhog

      Agree. I too was there during the Sutton era. He put Arkansas basketball on the map. Eddie was a great guy, very accessible, humble about his success, at least in this fan’s experience.

      I agree – Eddie recruited and coached some of the greatest ball players in Hog history, and had great success doing it. He deserves some love.

    A great day for Arkansas and Razorback basketball. Wonderful to see all those legends. Good game, too. The team is playing well now, with momentum I think. If they can continue to play this way their season will be successful, regardless of post-season.

    • Roadhog

      PS: I hope the current Razorbacks grasped the significance of the pomp and circumstance surrounding this game, that they will realize they are part of a once-great tradition, and that they dedicate themselves to returning this program to its former glory. The way they have been playing suggests that they are finding their identity as winners.

    If we can keep up this intensity, we’ve got a good shot at the NIT. I’m not optimistic that we can beat UK, and don’t think we can win the SEC Tourney. Perhaps making it to the finals could get us there.

    Regardless, this team is finally showing some manhood and not giving up. That is good momentum to finish strong and set us up for next year.

  • OwassoHog

    Ok… finally decided to get this off my chest.

    Is it just me or does anybody else find this hypocritical of the university to “honor” a man that “lied” to his country about a sex with “young” woman under his leadership (including impeachment and disbarred/give up law license) so recently after making such a “big” deal about “integrity goes a Long way” when dealing with another man that “lied” about a “young” woman under his leadership???

    Doesn’t this seem VERY odd? (trying not to be political so tried to stay strictly to the correlation between the two similarities).

    • Tomahog

      I cannot argue your point. My beef is the fact the Bill Clinton has not played basketball at UA. Why do we retire a number in honor of a non player. Purely a political move and I am disappointed that the U of A cannot honor just the players and leave out the politicians. The politicians are in our lives way to deep without pulling them into our sports arena.

      • OwassoHog

        Did they “retire” 42 or just present him with a jersey… seems like they do this all of the time at the White House (usually with the player of #1 – it seems).

        Sure sounds like a double standard here by UofA.

          Benghazi, too, also.
