Arkansas has committed $24-35 million to building a new, state of the art football complex for Bobby Petrino and his program. Athletic director Jeff Long expects construction on the building to begin in the fall.
“I can’t tell you if that’s September, October or November. We’re putting together those timelines now,” the AD said.
Long also said that a fundraising campaign is coming soon to Razorback Nation: “I think you’ll see later in the summer kind of the mass, broader appeal for fans to step up and join in. Right now we’re in the not so quiet phase. Everybody knows we’re out fundraising. We’re still focusing on individuals who might want to step up and help us.”
