Homecoming may be more of a 'Thriller' than Arkansas fans counted on

Big Red, the University of Arkansas' wild-pig mascot. Halloween Eve. Thousands of people wearing Razorback pig hats and Halloween garb in the stands at a football game doing the "Thriller" dance. Oh, and alcohol will play a supporting role.

DVR was invented for just this moment.

Frankly, 1) Michael Jackson's "signature" move = not such a hot idea; 2) while I love the dance, this seems way, way too complicated. Sober people in the parking lot mess it up. Still, I hadn't planned on watching the Razorbacks host Vanderbilt in the 5 p.m. (EDT) tilt. Until now.

This is wonderful! I wish all college teams would do this on Saturday and that half-time would be televised. It would be awesome!

Our director, Dr. Christopher Knighten, has made it very clear in learning this dance that we place our hands on our hips. In doing this, the move becomes not one of sexual context, but a simple move we see many professional dancers do, which is exactlythe role the band is assuming on Saturday during halftime. We do not wish to offend anyone, only to get the crowd excited for our team.
