Razorbacks head coach Sam Pittman wants to bring back the Texas vs. Arkansas rivalry. AND he wants to play them every season...
quote:

"Personally, I love the rivalry games and would hate, once Texas gets into the league, not to play them every year, for the fans and everybody else," Pittman said, via ESPN.com. "I'm not calling out Texas. Texas has a great program, and I have high respect for them. I'm just saying for the fans, and obviously for the team because we've got a lot of Texas kids on our team, I think it would be a neat home-and-home each year."

"I would want to do that for the state of Arkansas and what it means to so many people here, to be able to play Texas every year," Pittman added. "Now, I'm not saying, 'Man, we want to play Texas.' I'm not saying that. I'm saying -- for the fans, for recruiting, for the tradition of this game and things of that nature -- I would like to play that game every year. But, certainly, I'm not counting out the Longhorns by any stretch."

Why does Arkansas get to demand a cupcake every year?

From the 60s to the 90s this game has had a lot of close games.

Don’t worry, they’ll screw us over just like the last expansion. Being so long in the SWC we’re used to it.

Texas week was always a big deal back in the day, just like this last time we played. Sam grew up seeing it himself and knows it would be a big deal again. Sam knows our program well, we’re fortunate to have him. Right man at the right time.

You're not alone Sam. We all want the easy conference win too.

Honestly, I really like Sam Pittman. Him being at Arkansas is good for the SEC.

Sad that he has to qualify his comments like that so clearly so his words don’t get misrepresented by the media

Guess that tells you how shitty the media is nowadays

Enemy of the people. ESPN was discussing the "January 6 insurrection" the other day...
