Bill, Nolan, Eddie, Corliss... The whole gang was back in town to celebrate the success of a storied program.

For those who were unable to make the pilgrimage to Bud Walton today, here is a video of the celebration. It includes the pre-ceremony video that highlights all six of Arkansas's Final Four runs and speeches from Nolan Richardson and William Jefferson Clinton.

Clinton had the line of the night (which comes around the 13:30 mark):

"I had successfully watch us defeat Michigan, Arizona and Duke. That's 51 electoral votes. We have six. Somebody asked me if I was crazy. I said, 'If you had been waiting for this as long as we have, it would be worth every single one."

On his twitter account, Mr. President has posted a picture of him receiving a jersey commemorating his support.

From all accounts and based on the video, it was one of the more special times to have ever been in Bud Walton Arena.
