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