SOOOOOOOOOO PIG SOOOOIE RAZORBACKS!!!! It can be heard across the state of Arkansas every fall as rabid Razorback fans cheer on their Arkansas team.

The Hogs were originally cardinals, until 1909 when their head coach called his boys a “wild band of razorback hogs” after a win over LSU and it stuck.

Tusk IV, the hairy hog that attends all Razorback home football games, is a Russian boar, which closely resembles the wild hogs known as razorbacks native to the Arkansas wilderness. These razorbacks are tough and at times ill-tempered — animals whose fearlessness and doggedness were the inspiration for the Razorback nickname. (SOURCE)

  1. The Hog Call is one of the most recognizable chants in all of sports. Here are the basics:
  2. Raise your arms above your head during the The Hog Call, yell “Wooo” and wiggle your fingers for a few seconds.
  3. Next, bring both arms straight down with fists clinched while yelling, “Pig.”
  4. Then extend your right arm with the “Sooie.”
  5. Repeat these steps two more times and finish by yelling
  6. “Razor-Backs” like this:
    Wooooooooo. Pig. Sooie!
    Wooooooooo. Pig. Sooie!
    Wooooooooo. Pig. Sooie! Razorbacks!

Other Arkansas traditions include: : “Tusk,” playing games in Little Rock, running through the “A,” Hog hats, Maxine’s Tap Room.
