It has recently come to my attention that at Arkansas they must pre-approve any sign a person wants to bring into a football game. Are we going to a football game or trying to get a home loan?
I thought this policy might be a new one in light of Bobby Petrino’s recent transgressions, but according to Arkansas AD Jeff Long this policy was in place before Petrino hired his mistress and wrecked his motorcycle. Can you imagine being the one to say yes or no to a sign brought to your office? Is there a list of words that are unallowable like UK’s twitter list?
I decided to go down to Fayetteville and investigate.
Upon my arrival in the Air KSR (our private jet), the administration there was less than helpful. They were busy hiring Jessica Dorrell’s replacement. However, while they were distracted, I helped myself to their trash to see if I could find any unapproved signs.
After searching through many trash cans with labels such as “Nolan Richardson’s Legacy” and “Dust off of our National Championship Trophy,” I found these signs in a trash can that was labeled “Unapproved Gameday Signs” (should have searched this one first).
To be perfectly clear, and I cannot stress this enough UK fans; DO NOT, under ANY circumstance, take these signs or any like them into Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on October 13th. And definitely do not make them into t-shirts.
