Another piece of history.

I often wonder what Hog football would have been if Pearl Harbor never happened.  To explain, arguably the greatest college coach of all time, Bear Bryant was born in Moro Bottom Arkansas, was a great high school player, played college ball at Alabama, and started coaching after that.  Long story short, Bryant was offered the head coaching job at Arkansas, but turned it down to join the Navy to serve his country, and we all know the rest of the story.  So yes, the greatest coach of all time was a Arkansas boy, and we missed out on him because of war.  The first of many bad breaks for the Hogs.  Sorry for the long post, Go Hogs.
