Hogs on Ice?

By: 23 January 2012 2 Comments

Yep!  The U of A has a hockey team.  It’s a club sport, but these guys are good!  They’re so good, in fact, that when I went to their game against Tulane Friday night, I found out that the Tulane team decided it was better to forfeit the game than play these guys.  I later heard that Tulane was planning to show up for Saturday night’s game or else they could get kicked out of the league.  Instead of disappointing their fans who showed up to see a hockey game, the team played an inter-squad scrimmage.  It’s difficult to see just how good this team is when they have to split up their good players to play against each other.

The Arkansas team is known as the Ice Hogs, and they play in the South Eastern Collegiate Hockey Conference or SECHC.  The SECHC has all but two of the teams in the better known football SEC: Kentucky and LSU.  Currently, the Ice Hogs are tied with Alabama at 12 points in the West Division.   They are 6-1 in the conference and 15-6 overall.  The Ice Hogs have two shots at taking down the Frozen Tide on February 3rd and 4th at the Jones Center in Springdale, AR.  Come on out and check out your U of A hockey team!

    My grandson plays for the Ice Hogs. These guys work very hard to be the best they can be. Can’t understand why they get no recognition from the University of Arkansas. Go Hogs Beat Bama!!!

    Libby — I’m not sure why the UA doesn’t recognize the team, either. I’d never heard of the Ice Hogs until Nicole posted the pics of the team. Good luck to your grandson and the team!
