I always thought The Hill was in reference to Bert’s stomach

I stand corrected

Oh wow it’s because of the landscape. We can finally put this debate to rest

Western Kentucky is like that too. Hence the “Hilltoppers”.

I used to have to walk up that same spot after racquetball class and the few minutes it took do that should have been worth another PE credit.

Because they filmed a video of a kid running up a hill?

Far out man.

He doesn't even start at the bottom. there's a grade change from that street to that dorm of about another 15 feet.

Edit, you can't even see the street I'm referring to because that first concrete area is a building pad on frat row. The street itself is another good 20 ft below that.

Its pretty hilly on Arkansas' campus.

I hated driving near the campus. My ex went to the U of A for a year and I had to be in Fayetteville for about two months for assistant manager training down there for Wallyworld during the winter months. It never got bad while I was there but I always wondered what it would be like if it got slick out there.

That hill made me miss a significant portion of Sophomore year.

You can lose weight If you just walk around campus. I don't know what hill it was called but Nolan Richardson made his team run up this hill each practice.

Cleveland Hill.

Ditto missing a class or two because I didn’t want to go up the hill. That definitely wasn’t an uncommon occurrence at all.

No joke, my fat arse lost 30 lbs my first year of college just from walking to class.
