100 Things Arkansas Fans

Should Know & Do Before They Die

By Rick Schaeffer/Forward by Quinn Crovey

 

“Woo, Piigg, Soooooey,” followed by the roaring sound of “Razorbacks.” With arguably the most unique cheer in college athletics, the Razorbacks are an unforgettable team with an equally unforgettable history. Written by Rick Schaeffer, an expert in Razorback’s history, 100 Things Arkansas Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die (Triumph Books, September 2014) is filled with moments, facts, stories and people all Hog’s fans should know.

 

100 Things Arkansas details the extensive history of the University of Arkansas’ football and basketball teams from winning the 1994 NCAA tournament to the story behind the Razorbacks original mascot and the Razorbacks 1999 win against Texas in the Cotton Bowl. 100 Things Arkansas has everything you need to know about Arkansas athletics. Stories include:

 

  • How the Razorback uniform configuration is considered a curse
  • Hugo Bezdek’s role in changing the mascot from the Cardinal to the Razorback
  • Former basketball coach Eddie Sutton, who worked to get people at a traditional football school to love basketball
  • The first Razorback to letter in four sports

100 Things Arkansas is a must read for all who call themselves Razorback fans. With facts and stories from all eras of Hog’s history, it is the perfect tool for all fans to buff up on their Razorback knowledge.
