We now interrupt our regularly scheduled blog programming with a note about some specialized content that will be appearing on the site over the next week:
We were recently asked by EA Sports if they could sponsor a week's worth of posts leading up to the release of NCAA Football 2011 next Tuesday, July 13th. Although this initially set off some alarm bells due to our rigidly anti-corporate ethos, we soon realized it was actually pretty cool - they weren't interested in telling us what to say, but instead wanted to spark a discussion about college football fandom and what being Razorback fans means to all of us (ok, and maybe sell a few games too).
To be honest, finding interesting content to write about during the summer doldrums can be a bit of a challenge, so we were quite happy to have the suggestions - we think it will make for a really fun week's worth of material here on the site. With that in mind, here's what's on the docket:
Today: Where I Come From: Calling the Hogs at an Early Age
Tuesday: All-Time Favorite Arkansas Teams
Wednesday: Tailgating Traditions
Thursday: All-Time Favorite Razorbacks
Friday: Most Memorable Moments as a Hog Fan
Monday: Expectations for the 2010 Season
Tuesday: NCAA Football 2011
These topics should be fun to write about, but we also suspect that each post will provoke some interesting discussions. So, please join the conversation in the comments thread...we can't wait to hear your stories.
