I have been to a lot of Southeastern Conference Championship Games. My first one was in 2000 when Auburn lost 28-6 to Florida – a trip that came about on a whim from my dad getting tickets the Tuesday before the game.
While in the midst of searching for a new head football coach, the University of Arkansas Athletic Department on Thursday (Nov. 29) announced it is investigating the possibility of expanding the north end of the Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
A crowd gathered in front of the Broyles Athletic Center on Friday morning (Nov. 23) for the dedication of a statue honoring former University of Arkansas head football coach and athletic director Frank Broyles.
On Tuesday (Nov. 20) the Burlsworth Trophy selection committee announced the top 10 semi-finalists for the 2012 award. The Burlsworth Trophy is awarded to the most outstanding football player in America that began his career as a walk-on.
The Sunday morning phone call from my father has become a staple of our relationship. Every Sunday, like clockwork, he and I discuss the Hogs at length. Every Sunday, win or lose, in season or out of season. No exceptions.
The 2012 season is rapidly winding down, and our long Hog Nation nightmare is about to reach its ultimate conclusion with the hiring of the next Head Hog. As with most of you, this new chapter cannot come soon enough for the Tusk to Tail crew.

Saturday may have been the Hogs' fourth 11 a.m. kickoff in the past five games, but it was the first early game in Fayetteville this year. Tusk to Tail was prepared, providing a lavish brunch that may have been more memorable than the game itself.
