Arkansas Needs to Hire Some Hogs

If Houston Nutt fails to deliver a conference champion I'd like to offer up these three gentleman to coach the 'Hogs:

Head Coach: Mark Mangino

Offensive Coordinator: Ralph Friedgin

Defensive Coordinator: Toledo Tom

They could rename the field where Arkansas plays "Buffet Field." The marketing would rival Microsoft except that this product might work.

Why a Sports Blog?

This question comes often when I tell someone that I'd like to write about sports. It's accompanied by a look that would send shivers down the spine of Robert Mugabe (He didn't play at Miami). My response takes two forms:
