If you were planning on attending an Arkansas football game this season with an oh-so clever sign describing former coach Bobby Petrino’s “extracurricular activities” or current coach John L. Smith’s financial troubles, we’re sorry to disappoint.
A tweet sent out on Monday morning from the account of Razorbacks athletic director Jeff Long stipulates, “All signs Students and Fans would like to display at FB games must be approved in advance.” Those fans seeking approval are given a number for assistant event manager Julie Cain.
We don’t envy the phone calls Julie must already be fielding. Or the signs that rival SEC fans plan on making on the road as a rebuttal to Long’s mandate.
All signs Students and Fans would like to display at FB games must be approved in advance. Call Julie Cain at (479) 575-3134 for approval
