    And of course, both times were bad for LSU.

    It's because of War Memorial. That field is a sh!thole. The play clock kept going out also. The SEC needs to step in and tell them they either need to renovate and upgrade a whole hell of alot, or no games can be played there anymore.

    Is there a real reason we play that game there anyway and not in Fayetteville?

    Because of the rich Arkansas alumni that live in Little Rock, they donate tons of money to the University and threaten to pull funds if games are not played in War Memorial. My Dad is an Arkansas grad and that's what he told me, don't know if that is just speculation though.

    University of Arkansas politics. They have to play in the Capital every year.

    Then this needs to be taken out of the hands of Arkansas. When TV equipment is directly interfering with games because of a POS stadium, then yes, the SEC should definitely step in and assert some authority.

    They did. They ordered the cables removed. We can play football without a skycam.

    what about the play clocks constantly going out, talk about a home field advantage.
