It wasn't mentioned in the story, but Arkansas was also fined $25,000 for rushing the field, and would be fined $50,000 for doing it again. While of course no one wants anyone to get hurt, it's hard to believe that's not a factor.
The worst part of it all is the name of the program. #KeepItClassyArkansas. As if the Razorback fans, who have suffered through everything they've suffered through for two and a half years, are somehow lacking class for taking over the field and celebrating with players after the game. That's unbelievably sanctimonious.
Arkansas should be beyond thrilled fans kept showing up to games. Nobody ever has to buy tickets or make donations, but that's especially true after a 3-9, 0-8 season that followed up a 5-7 lost year.
The Division of Student Affairs launched a social media campaign, #KeepItClassyArkansas, Friday morning but it was quickly met with anger and criticism on social media.
On Friday afternoon, the organization took to Twitter, saying "Our attempt to create a catchy hashtag to remind all to stay off the field for safety reasons was a #fail. We know you are classy. GO HOGS!"
"We really apologize to the Razorback family. We did not intend to offend anyone with our earlier message."
