We also rehash War Memorial’s feeble attempts to keep football interest with Jim Harris, and talk about a lackluster basketball performance against Georgia.
@TJCarpenterShow – firstname.lastname@example.org – War Memorial thinks expansion talk will help them keep Arkansas interested in playing games there beyond the existing contract. They are mistaken.
