Laugh if you want, but it’s technically a neutral site. Additionally, the distance and the driving time from Fayetteville, AR and Norman, Ok to Tulsa are almost exactly the same.

The geography lesson is free.

It's pretty neutral. Distance-wise for sure. A lot of Arky fans will make that trip, and the OU fans in Tulsa aren't the type that go to a bunch of games or think of basketball as their primary sport. Crowd will be no worse (for Arky) than 60/40 I wouldn't think.

Hard to get excited about this since it’s a noncon game and, as we all know thanks to the education provided to us by several of our posters, those games are meaningless and shouldn’t even count toward our record. Otherwise, I’d be pretty happy to see us renewing a good regional rivalry.

Crutchfield has been taking some subtle shots at Ou I feel.

Arkansas claiming TY and Buddy Hield as top 10 picks.

I know the geography. Just also know Arky fans are more boisterous in Tulsa than OU. OU is 3rd in Tulsa, whether alumni base #s reflect that or not is irrelevant.

I love playing Arkansas in the non-con. Feels like a good regional game.

Cool game. Great idea. I bet we're outnumbered butts in seats.

As a resident of northwest Arkansas and U of A grad, but life-long OU fan this is exciting news.

Norman is about 4 hours away so I don't get to go to many home games but I'll be in Tulsa anytime OU wants to play there, especially against Arky.

The USC game in 2018 was a blast.

Agreed. And they look to be pretty solid in the next few years.

Crutch did help recruit those guys but just off.

I'm good with this. Any neutral site winnable game is usually pretty advantageous to SOS metrics.

Have the hogs ever been realistic about their athletic programs?

New coach (who has shown he is a pretty good coach) and some nice recruiting.

I can see them being a consistent top 25 team in the near future.

I mean, football is in the crapper right now but overall it's been pretty balanced across the three main men's sports since joining the SEC. National title in basketball, consistent top 10 team in baseball (and a pop fly away from a NC), and have won the SEC West three times in football which is more than a lot of other SEC programs even though we suck right now.

Even as mediocre as Mike Anderson was in basketball we were still like top 5 in the league in wins for the majority of his tenure.

Hey welcome to the forum! Always like having fans from other programs stop by.
