Razorbacks Don't Forget

For those of you unfortunate enough to have missed the Razorbacks' drubbing of New Mexico's Lobos last Saturday night, let me fill you in on something pretty cool.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock (where the game was played) became Patriot Central.  The ordinarily fiery-red running Razorback painted on the center of the field became this:

And looked like this on the field:

And the stands almost became Old Glory as alternating sections wore red or white shirts; the students wore blue:

And people actually did it!  It looked very impressive.

There was even a special logo designed for this particular game -- Razorbacks Remember:

I'm told the halftime show was very moving.

I'd say the nation, as a whole, pulled off a fitting tribute to 2001's national nightmare.  Let's pray we never have to be quite that creative again.


  1. Good effort by the 'Backs, both in winning and in the tribute.

    Wish I could say the same about my Beavs, but Wisconsin pretty much used us as T.P. on Saturday.

  2. We still have not watched any football, but good on 'em pigs.

  3. Good on your Hawgz! Yeah, I think the whole nation pulled off a fitting tribute. I mean, except that s*$#head in The White House.

  4. Very, very cool... especially the aerial shot of the stadium.
