Hello and Season’s Greetings.As the year comes to a close and we enjoy the holiday season, I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon what has been a tremendous year for the Razorback program and express my thanks to the Razorback Nation for their sincere and passionate support.Even in the midst of uncertain economic times, the Razorback fans have continued to provide the resources essential to all 19 of our sports programs. We are blessed to have such a loyal following and we are thankful for the support of the 462 extraordinary young men and women who represent the University of Arkansas in the classroom, on the playing fields, and in the community. I would also like to extend warm holiday wishes to the outstanding faculty and staff at the University of Arkansas. Their hard work and dedication to ALL students is the very cornerstone of this great university. While the past year has been filled with numerous athletic achievements, I am also extremely proud of the accomplishments of our student-athletes and staff in the community. Our student-athletes have answered the call and the evidence of their impact can be seen in the smiles on the children’s faces they have met with throughout the year.An exciting new year is just around the corner and 2009 promises to be another great chapter in the history of the Razorbacks. Until then, I would like to wish you and your family the best in this special holiday season. Happy Holidays and Go Hogs!!
