Like knee high socks and shorts that were too short, the Slobbering Hog was a tradition as the painted-on mascot at the half-court of the Arkansas Razorbacks' home court of Barnhill Arena. Parents & grandparents still have nightmares about the anorexic Slobbering Hog from the old days, not unlike Hogzilla. Everyone hated the Slobbering Hog. Jeff Long, the athletic director (AD) of the Arkansas Razorbacks from the beginning of 2008 until November 15, 2017, finally put an end to this sad looking image and updated it. He felt as if Slobbering Hog was ugly and mad people sad and rightfully so. So, he consulted with marketing and developed a plan to remove the hideous image from the floor of Bud Walton Arena, and was able to do so to the benefit of crying of little children everywhere. Joyous cheers could be heard, echoing off of the Boston and Ozark mountains.
Now that Jeff Long is no longer in charge of the Arkansas Razorbacks, Slobbering Hog needs to stay in the past, with the socks, the shorts and the crying children. The new Arkansas AD Hunter Yurachek needs to make this a top priority
