Apologies for referencing that terrible Hank, Jr song, but I'm more excited about this football season than any other one I can remember and it's making me a little loopy. I'm guessing many of you are feeling the same way.
Since this is our first year covering football on the new Arkansas Expats site, I thought I'd share a few details about what we'll be doing on game days throughout the fall:
First of all, we'll put up an open game thread every Saturday so you can discuss the game while it's happening. This should be a fun way to interact with your fellow Hog fans, and if I may add a personal note I'll be counting on your help here to keep me posted on how the games are going since I live in a place (Berkeley, CA) where, for some reason, SEC television coverage takes a back seat to the Pac-10.
Following that, we'll put up a post game thread that, if all goes well, will be a place where we all talk about how awesome and spectacular and amazing the Hogs' performance was (at least 7-8 times this fall, that is).
The point of all this is to give you all the the opportunity to share your thoughts, voice your opinions and connect with other Razorback fans. The best part of doing this blog, hands down, has always been the little community of fellow crazies that has sprung up around it, and we're hoping these Saturday forums can be a way to get people to actively participate and enjoy it with us.
Woo Pig Sooie!!!
