Hog Fans Answer NCAA Tournament Trivia

News
The Razorbacks face off against their first NCAA Tournament opponent, the Wofford College Terriers at 8:50 P.M. Central Time.

Until Selection Sunday, many in Arkansas had never heard of the team. Our Lauren Conley asked around to find what Arkansas fans knew about the Wofford Terriers going into Thursday night’s game.

When shown a cue card with Wofford spelled out, many couldn’t quite pronounce the name right.
Responses varied from Woe-ford to the correct Wofford.

When asked by our Lauren Conley what Wofford is, one fan responded, “I have no clue.”

He was also unable to answer who the Hogs would play in Thursday’s game.

“Mississippi. No! We’re playing 9:00. I don’t know.” Said Phillip Harrington.

Others, had studied up.

“Wofford…It’s the team that we’re playing tonight.” Said Colton Echols, a student at the University of Arkansas.

“They’re from South Carolina…They’re the Southern Conference Champions, so they did enough to get into the tournament.” Said Student Phil Gore.

The mascot was a trickier question.

“Do you know their mascot?” Asked Lauren Conley.

“Ummm, no?” Said Colton Echols.

“Well it’s not a hog. I know that because we’re the only hogs. Ummm, a, umm a mule.” Said Brian Watson.

“Sounds like a bulldog to me.” Said Harrington.

Only one person asked, got the question right.

“The terriers. I study a little bit of basketball.” Said Gore.

Many fans say they put the Hogs at least to the Sweet Sixteen in their Tournament brackets.

Though some are voicing concerns about the possibility of playing North Carolina, and not feeling so confident the Hogs could pull out a win against the Tar Heels.
