Arkansas fans HATE the idea of a Thursday Night Kick-Off

Arkansas fans HATE the fact that the school has decided to move the 2017 season kick-off against mighty Florida A&M to a Thursday night in Little Rock, ARK to please the SEC Network.

Remarks from the school’s Twitter feed weren’t nice:

“This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of.”

“So no students will be able to attend because they have class the next day in Fayetteville”. 

“When money is more important than the fans and tradition….this happens”

Some went for Jeff Long, the Arkansas Razorbacks’ AD: “Can Frank Broyles come out of retirement as AD please?” as well as: “Further proof that Jeff Long only cares about NWA [Editor’s Note: We should think that’s not the rap band, but Northwest Arkansas] and not the entire Razorback fanbase.”

Tailgaters weren’t happy. “How do they expect to sell tailgate spots that people are required to be in by 10.30am on a workday? Horrible!”

The good thing for Arkansas fans is at least the Razorbacks – who have a small history of struggling with ‘below-par’ teams shouldn’t struggle with Florida A&M. The Rattlers went 4-7 last year, losing 70-3 to Miami (FL) in its season opener.

One thing they may struggle with? Attendance.

 

 

 

 

Clemson suspends four for Georgia clash

Clemson has suspended four players before the season-opening clash against Georgia.

Defensive end Corey Crawford, guard David Beasley, cornerback Garry Peters and offensive tackle Shaq Anthony were all told that they weren’t be going to Sanford Stadium to face the Bulldogs….who dismissed starting safety Josh Harvey-Clemons earlier this off-season.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said: “A huge part of our program is teaching accountability, responsibility and that there are consequences for your actions. These are four good young men, but they broke a team rule and as a result, they will each miss a game. I am hopeful that they will learn and grow from this and have a great 2014 season on and off the field.

BOTTOM LINE: Crawford’s going to be a major loss, particularly with Clemson trying to stop Gurshall.
