Yes this has some politics to the story, but he is a former Razorback so I post it, Please lets not discuss his politics… neither FOR or AGAINST. Just let those that might be interested in the story get to read it, those that are not don’t have to read it.
Lets just leave it as a link and not discuss it because it will boil down to fighting and name calling and get removed.
Yep. You beat me to it on posting that. As long as we’re talking about former hogs in the US Senate, J.W. Fulbright was a Razorback football player in the 1920’s. Also a little known fact: Dale Bumpers was a drum major in the Razorback band. David Pryor was president of the UA student body.
Well, before I even look to see what ticket he’s running on or who he’s running against, I will vote for him. A Razorback and NFL player, who later joined the military makes him a very good man and he’s always been a great ambassador for Arkansas.
I’m fine with @votan posting this as long as the discussion doesn’t veer off into political debate. What we don’t want is the political back and forth that overwhelmed our moderators last year.
If this thread erodes into that, we’ll delete it, but I see nothing wrong with acknowledging that a couple of former Razorback football players are going to run against each other for a U.S. Senate seat.
Believe Jake has been in political arena for a long time. He has been very into it. Have been following his tweeter for a few years now, I was wondering when he was going to run. He needs to find a way to separate himself from the other football player he is running against as far views on issues. Hard to see a difference right now and it is hard to beat an Incumbent. It will be interesting how he goes about it,
