The equipment manager will be packing either visitor RED Razorback uniforms or home WHITE Razorback uniforms.

I hope the equipment manager doesn't make the mistake of packing BLACK visitor uniforms like he did for the Missouri game.
Black with red numbers?.......Arkansas State Red Wolves !

Butler is kinda like Arkansas in that they're a mid-major that had some success at one time back in the '90's and early 2000's. Then they decided to move up in class to the Big East and sank like a rock, never to be heard from again.

When Arkansas is good..........they are great
When they are not...............they might as well let the bus run in Detroit.

However, my bracket is filled out and entered in about 6 different contests.
Arkansas.......making the Final Four and losing to Kansas in the semi final !

Memphishog, what does ASU have to do with this, BTW the Jonesboro boys and girls won their state titles, and the Jonesboro boys have the best team in the state, as they did last year, have a nice day.
