Updating the Arkansas Civil War

A group calling itself "Grateful Hog Fans of Arkansas" put an ad in Saturday's editions of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, supporting Razorback coach Houston Nutt and his staff. The ad ends with this statement: "We're looking forward to a 2007 season filled with success, victory and unity." The ad appears to be a response to an ad in Thursday's Democrat Gazette that was critical of Nutt and athletic director Frank Broyles. That ad concluded with, "We urge both of these men, who have on numerous occasions vowed their love for the University of Arkansas and its athletic programs, to step down immediately." ... We're not sure what the Democrat Gazette is charging these days for a three-quarter page ad, but the Wiz will gladly undercut the paper's rate for any Razorback fan or group that wishes to get their message out to the masses.
