Bahn: If Moving LSU Game Is Best For 2012, What's Best Beyond This Season?

by Chris Bahn 2/19/2012 8:54 am

Travel makes Little Rock dates on the Arkansas schedule very much road games. Passionate fans and great tailgating on the golf course don’t cut down on the nearly 200 miles that separate Fayetteville and Little Rock. Traditionally, it’s an inconvenience that the athletic department and coaches are willing to overlook. But with the LSU game moving to Fayetteville it makes it natural to wonder what this means for the future of two games played annually in War Memorial Stadium. That three-plus hour bus ride isn’t going to get any shorter. Transporting equipment and personnel doesn't suddenly become less of a pain.

Petrino, who made a Friday morning appearance in “The Zone” on 103.7 The Buzz to discuss a variety of topics, offered his thoughts on the move in an exchange with host Justin Acri.
