    I heard that as well, that along with on the Mike and Mike show this morning they said that he is from Arkansas and has family in the area. Anderson is a perfect fit and will definately energize their fan base. I think that most on here can remember the Arkansas fan support under N. Richardson, was the only one that could come close to U.K.'s fan base.
    Anderson will imo do a good job there, thats why I hate to see him in the SEC, will make the Hogs tougher to beat. However....... U.K. will still beat them.

    Maybe he has family there but he didn't grow up in Arkansas. He is from Birmingham AL. He didn't play at Arkansas. Maybe he has kids that live there with their families? That could have happened with the 17 year stay previously. There obviously is some family connection because the move is lateral at best from a program point of view.

    I agree, Pitino and Richardson had some classic battles, the Arkansas rivalry then was as intense as any. I wish that I had classic on my cable package, that would have been a good one to watch again. ESPN classic shows alot of those type games.

    O.K. then, thanks for the correction and I must have misunderstood. Regardless, imo Arkansas fans have wanted Richardson or that style back since he left and now they hav it.
