"When I get said, I stop being said and be awesome again. True Story." - Barney Stinson
Yeah I'm not liking how much Collins is liking his visit. Hopefully he looks at the big picture...
Sorta but Arkansas doesn't compare to Wisconsin. Upside is the weather though.
Ball tweeted, "Danny o brien just messaged me this.. 'let's do this'... it shall be done then my man. #wiscONsin."
Huge meth problem.
Look at Milwaukee.
I hope we get Collins because Bielema is a douche and too many Razorback fans are insufferable. But please stop trying to imagine what's so horrible about Arkansas. You're embarrassing yourself.
I've lived here for over 10 years after living in Madison for most of my life prior to that including my time at UW. I've been tremendously lucky because both places are great. In northwest Arkansas the public schools are very good, our neighbors are nice, there is abundant natural beauty, the weather is terrific compared to Madison, crime is low, and the cost of living is low. Golf, mountain biking, hiking, and tennis are all better than what Madison can offer. Walmart and the Walton family have dumped a crap-ton of money into the university and the surrounding area.
Now, Madison and the metro area have more amenities. Better shopping, better dining out, better city parks, more museums and zoos, more options in general. Football-wise, Madison has a better game day atmosphere in almost every way. Camp Randal is bigger and louder than Razorback Stadium. Tailgating in Madison shames Arkansas tailgating. But Madison tailgating shames everywhere in the country not named Baton Rouge.
Are there rednecks? Sure, but have you ever been to Stevens Point or any small town north of Point? If there is a drug problem in Fayetteville, its pot… because it's a COLLEGE TOWN. Kinda like Madison. But it’s just college kids who get stoned and talk about how the world should be, kinda like Madison. There is far more violent crime in Madison. Ask Monty Ball.
Frankly I miss Madison and all it has to offer. It’s my favorite city in the world. I’ve got 2 daughters who wear their Badger gear to school proudly. But my wife (also a Badger) has huge reservations about ever moving back up north. The bottom line is: if you've ever actually spent time in both Fayetteville and Madison it's easy to see why someone might prefer one over the other.

I lived in Milwaukee for 7 years. Pine Bluff and West Helena in my opinion are worse.
You are forgetting the rednecks below sp. Just as many
Somebody should tell Lance to sack up and come clean
Good post but outside of those areas you mentioned Arkansas as a whole is pretty crappy. I live in Arkansas btw in Arkansas county.
