PRE-GAME BILL’S BLOG Bill Smith is in the media center at War Memorial Stadium today as your eyes and ears for this BCS showdown. Remember the ground rules for the blog: no screen names or handles, please use your real name and hometown to join in; as a moderated chat, not all comments automatically reach the blog; this is a family-friendly and sportsmanship blog — we’re all one section together in the stadium; and we welcome in all, including folks from down south.
EARLY MORNING: Chilly, to say the least, in the Rock.The temp is 33 with a slight west wind around five.Main blog will open around noon today, but periodic updates as we get ready. One of them being this — the TwitTix are claimed for this game — we’ll detail that in the main blog as we had over 200 comments on Thanksgiving to the #ThanksArk hash tag to enter. But if you just need one seat, you may be in luck today. Watch @ArkRazorbacks this morning for a last chance single ticket — no pairs left — to get into what is bound to be an epic contest
