Arkansas reached its first BCS Bowl last season. Coach Bobby Petrino had the team ranked in the Top 25 from start to finish last season for the first time since 1989.

Fans seem to be energized and thankful for the success. Some even took to 1-40 just outside of Morrilton to post a billboard thanking Petrino.

A pair of pictures of Petrino with a message from fans sit in the foreground with an aerial photo of Reynolds Razorback Stadium in the background. Across the top is the message:

“THANKS COACH PETRINO FOR BRINGING WINNING & EXCITEMENT BACK TO RAZORBACK FOOTBALL

—THE ENTIRE RAZORBACK NATION”

Printed on the bottom is a quote from Petrino (also in all caps because, you know, people are excited):

“MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT… IT’S OUR TURN.”

—COACH PETRINO

Arkansas recently wrapped up spring practice. Petrino has said he expects this team to be in the BCS title hunt in 2011.

(And, no, the picture isn't great. We'll get a better one if we can, but figured you'd want to know about this sooner rather than later. If you have a better photo send it to cbahn@abpg.com).
