Jerry Jones is giddy about Arkansas football playing at Jerry World

Jerry Jones’s alma mater is playing football at his stadium this season, and Jones can’t wait.

Arkansas will play Texas A&M on September 27 at the Cowboys’ home stadium, and Jones — who played on the Arkansas Razorbacks’ 1964 National Championship team — told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette that he considers having the Razorbacks play on the Cowboys’ field is the highlight of his career.

Nothing, nothing, nothing has made me prouder with the Cowboys or anything — [hosting] the Super Bowl, the Final Four — than to know the Arkansas Razorbacks are playing football in that stadium,” Jones said. “That’s just a dream come true for me.”

Jones has said since the first day the stadium was proposed that he wanted to see it host major events, but he also always said he wanted Arkansas to play there. Now Arkansas and Texas A&M have agreed to play there every year from 2014 through 2024.

“When I was thinking about building it, there wasn’t a day that I didn’t think about helping those Pigs out by playing in that stadium,” Jones said.

Arkansas, which is coming off a 3-9 season, could use the help.

  1. If he put half that passion into hiring a decent GM so he could just sit back and be a business man ONLY , the Cowboys might do something for a change.

  2. I’m currently bracing myself for a 4-12 season :-/

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Romo goes down with a minor injury midseason to limit hits taken….. This is going to be a rough year for Dallas. Slated to finish last in the NFC East.

    This is the direct result from Jerry Jones’ poor draft record. Very few pick from the past 5 drafts are still with the team. Its the polar opposite of a well run organization like Baltimore for example.

    The worst is that Jery thinks he’s doing a great job too….. Hire a real GM!!

  3. Jerry knows how to make money. He hasn’t figured out how to win at football without Jimmy Johnson – but his ego prevents him from doing anything that he doesn’t control, or gives credit to others where its due.

  4. Jerry is usually giddy. Reminds me that owners should be routinely drug tested.

    But who cares about owner behavior, because after all, they’re the ruling class? Their policy decisions effect millions and they can do that while high.

  5. And for his next act, he’s going to flood the stadium and have sea battles with pirate ships!!!

    What a YoYo!!

  6. I can’t get the image of JJ sounding like Roscoe P. Coletrain…”there wasn’t a day that I didn’t think about helping those Pigs …COO coo coo cooo…”

  7. “nothing, nothing, nothing…” until the next shiny object appears.

  8. And there you have it folks! Sad thing is the Allas Cowboys followers keep forking over their money to “Giddy Jerry”. Only when that stops will changes at the top come about. Until then the “Great Pretender” will keep cashin-in. When nothing changes, nothing changes.
