State of the Hogs: Dr. Pookie

Here is a front page commentary: … ouis-trip/

Great story about a great Razorback. Love these young men who only want to play for thier home state team. Pookie is a great example of using his time on the hill to prepare himself for a future that might now include basketball.

Having just retired from the corporate world I know the value of good HR Business Partners. I joked with my wife that many weeks I spent more time talking with my HR partner than her.

Thanks for the story Clay. Love to hear about our guys and gals doing well after their time on the hill.

I remember Jonathan Modica and how hard he played, and he was also good. I am very happy to know that he had the wisdom to decide education is the key to his success. And he made the effort to complete his education and pursue a carrier in business. I am proud of him for his accomplishments. Wishing him more success and happiness.

I am unbelievably proud of Jonathon. He’s a terrific person. You could see that the first time I shook his hand. I thought he was going to break mine!

There’s so much I would like to type. I’ll leave it today at “thank you”.

Professors Jordan and Wicks deserve thanks for their mentoring of Jonathan. Those in the teaching profession deserve all our thanks. I’ve been blessed to be able to personally thank some of my former teachers for pushing me to succeed.

Great story.

Numberhog always had Pookie’s back. A lot more than most will ever know.

Yeah, I kinda know about Mr. Numberhog. I say that with respect. If Pookie is Dr. Pookie, then Lynn is Mr. Numberhog.

He has certainly had my back as well.
