The way Arkansas got into the SEC wasn’t facilities or a great record in football. It was because they travel ...away games they show up and out. They would have Tyson as a sponsor and all food was free. We knew where the pre-game event was, there was no sign in, and everyone called the hogs. Even if you wore a shirt from another team, they embraced you, the college football fan.
I know this because I taught there for over 12.5 years and was involved in athletics and academics.
So, you want to join the AAC, it’s all about the money! Travel to as many away games as you can, and we will get an invite.
Show up and everything else will take care of itself! GMG
