Meanwhile, there’s more Hog coverage to chew on in the December ArkansasSports360.com print edition. Northwest Arkansas Editor Chris Bahn gets a sit-down with the new Hog-in-Chief Jeff Long. Bahn’s piece opens with a great anecdote about Long’s very first Hog call:
In his first act as athletic director, Long couldn’t afford to flub the most sacred tradition in Arkansas athletics. He took instruction on how to do it, ran through a couple trials and headed off to his introductory press conference.
More than a year later, he’s still not 100 percent confident in his ability to call the Hogs.
“I’m not sure I’ve got it totally down now,” Long says with a laugh. “Sometimes I come forward too quickly. It’s a work in progress for me.”
And then there’s this great cover shot of Long by Mike Pirnique, with Long rolling up his sleeves, ready to get to work.
