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 pass through the campus gates. Nate Allen, in Tales from Hog Heaven, chronicles the good, the bad and the funny from Arkansas history. You'll read about the adjustment in 1998 from dour Danny Ford to upbeat Houston Nutt, and about Lou Holtz' one-liners that seared their targets, but sometimes boomeranged. You'll meet the legendary track coach who told one of his Irish athletes "to row back home," and about sportswriter Orville Henry's penchant for deflating self-important bowl officials. Tales from Hog Heaven is a must-have addition to any Razorback fan's library.
