In 1909, the term Razorback was first uttered when coach Hugo Bezdek, proclaimed that the team played like a “wild band of razorback hogs.” The team went undefeated that year and the Razorback name stuck. In 1910 students voted to officially change the name to the Razorbacks and would shout “here come the hogs” as the team took the field.

Through the ups and downs, the good and the bad, I will always root for my Hogs.🐽👍
