It's official. Hendrix College will play football again. No date set. The administration has been lusting after this as a student-body builder.
Maybe the Hogs would consider re-establishing their old rivalry and special trains between Fayetteville and Conway. Arkansas State is too risky, I know. But the Warriors, for now at least, shouldn't pose a threat. Hendrix will play in Division III, where no athletic scholarships are offered.
From the looks of it, I'd say Rhodes in Memphis, by dint of proximity, seems the likeliest arch-rival.
ALSO: Arkansas Sports 360's account of the action includes comments from Hendrix trustee and former Hendrix football player Wm. R. Wilson Jr., a Perry County mule farmer who also works part-time at the federal building on Capitol Avenue. He played in the last Hendrix game, a squeaker over OBU in 1960, and makes the provocative suggestion that football players were smarter than the average student.
