Yeah, this will work
Arkansas has some pretty big games on their schedule this season, including Alabama and LSU at home. With such high profile games will come plenty of media attention, so you can imagine why Athletics Director Jeff Long wants to make sure he does whatever it takes to ensure the Arkansas community is portrayed in a positive light.
That is why Long is saying that any fan who wants to bring a sign to a game this season must be sure to arrange and have their sign approved by the school ahead of time. That’s right Razorback fan, when you come up with a witty and comical phrase to paint on your piece of poster board, you must be sure to get approval before bringing in to the stadium on game day.
All signs Students and Fans would like to display at FB games must be approved in advance. Call Julie Cain at (479) 575-3134 for approval

Over on Crystal Ball Run I took a look at some of the signs that would likely be approved by Arkansas, and one sign that might not. Of course, don’t be fooled by this. People are going to get signs in to the stadium without receiving any sort of approval from the school. It’s just something that will be next to impossible to enforce and hold up over the course of the season.
Nice try Jeff Long. You are a standup guy, especially with the way the Bobby Petrino scandal played out. But this is as close to you will get to Vanderbilt keeping players from swearing.
