We had a great time at the game last weekend. Razorbacks defeated Troy in front of about 75,000 rabid Hog fans (Qwest Field in Seattle is 68,000). The culture surrounding Arkansas football was amazing. The whole stadium was a sea of red. There are so many cheers and songs that everyone knew, we felt a little conspicuous not knowing them. With no competing state school, no pro sport teams, and being in the football crazy south it isn't a wonder everyone here is a fan. A very impressive feature of the stadium was the video screen. It was and may still be the largest LED screen in the world and has a incredibly clear and crisp picture (it's just over my shoulder in the picture above).
