Guess the April Fool's Story

New, 3 comments

A lot of crazy stuff has happened in the past year. Which story is real?

Kevin C. Cox

We've all seen April Fool's posts spamming around the internet, and despite our desire to tell you that Bret Bielema was taking an assistant coaching position at Alabama or that Alex Collins broke his toe kicking a curb, we didn't have the heart to slander those players and coaches names in a headline that might come back to bite them or us some day.

So, we at Arkansas Fight wanted to poll the users and see how close attention you've been playing to the weirder and wilder stories that have passed through Razorback land this year.

1) On September 24, 2013, just like the upcoming movie Noah, the floods came and damaged the floor of Bud Walton Arena. The water damage pushed the Men's and Women's teams into the HPER for a period. No foul play was suspected.

2) June 3rd, 2013 in Manhattan, Kansas. Leading 3-2, Arkansas opted to intentionally walk Kansas State center fielder Jared King, but an intentional walk bounced away from Arkansas catcher Jean Ramirez and Ross Kivett scored to tie the game for the Wildcats. Arkansas would go on to lose the game 4-3

3) March 2nd, 2014 in College Station, Texas. In their 3rd consecutive SEC Indoor title run and 9th straight SEC title run including Outdoor Track and Cross Country, the Razorback Men finished with 121 points over 2nd place Florida with 106. All of this happened despite men's 4x400 meter anchorman Neil Braddy losing his shoe at the beginning of his leg.

4) Last summer, during a speaking engagement in front of actual people, now-former Ohio State President E. Gorgon Gee called Bret Bielema a "thug". Or, rather, he said Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez called Bielema a "thug." Hilarity ensued.

Vote and tell us which one is the fake story, and have fun in the comments and make up your own April Fool's Stories.
