Whither Razorbacks

What do SMU, Rice, Fordham, U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy and Duke have in common?

They all used to be nationally ranked, nationally recognized college football programs that are now little more than cannon fodder for the present stable of football machines. Fordham, perenially a ranked team back in the '30s and '40s, is now a Div. I-AA program.

Could Arkansas be going that way, big enough to be a Div I-A school, but never again to be a big-time football school?

Time will tell, I guess. I don't think Houston Nutt can be the person needed, though.
