Overview

The University of Arkansas and its Razorbacks hold a special place in the hearts of Arkansans, not simply because the state has no professional sports teams, but because of the colorful players and coaches to have passed through the campus gates. Author Nate Allen chronicles the good, the bad, and the funny from Arkansas history in his second book about Razorback athletics, More Tales from Hog Heaven. Fans will be able to read more tales about the football program's adjustment in 1998 from the dour Danny Ford to the upbeat Houston Nutt, and about Lou Holtz's one-liners that seared their targets, but sometimes boomeranged. They will meet the legendary track coach who told one of his Irish athletes "to row back home," and read about sportswriter Orville Henry's penchant for deflating self-important bowl officials. More Tales from Hog Heaven will prove to be a must-have addition to any Razorback fan's library.
