26 Mar Hog Pod Episode 3: Three Men, Two Eras, One Goal
This is the story of three Final Four-caliber coaches—Gary Blair, Vic Schaefer and Mike Neighbors—all on one staff at Arkansas. It’s the story of how things fell apart for Razorback women’s basketball, and how Neighbors—who once was responsible for getting Diet Cokes for Blair—is working to bring it back.
We begin where it all started, with Blair and why he decided to leave Arkansas (3:00) and why he thinks Neighbors will be successful (8:37). Then, we visit with Schafer about not wanting to leave (19:20) and why Neighbors is ahead of schedule (20:40). Finally, we go full circle with Neighbors himself about what it was like working for Blair (26:30), what he learned from him (30:00) and how he’s working to restore the program to its former heights (35:10).
