FORT SMITH, Ark. â€” For University of Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long, things could not be better as far as the athletic programs at the Fayetteville institution are concerned.
First off, I hope that all of you have had a happy and safe summer break. I've enjoyed the more relaxed stretch of the year when I don't have to worry about high school and Carl Albert State College athletics. There was just enough Legion baseball, camps and golf tournaments to keep me out of trouble.
However, I now have to get back to reality, which is the 2012-13 athletic season is just around the corner. In fact, I'm actually going to start getting ready for it next week.
