I find it amazing that I was able to get people from Mississippi, Texas and Missouri to wear hog hats...

'cause hawg-hats are sho-nuff cool! I mean, who wouldn't wear one?
Soo-eee ... PIG!

I think it just so seriously caught them by surprise. Probably won't happen again.

As a Mizzou alum the rivalry is just beginning.
As a part of the FIRST family we'd put just about anything on our heads to help build up the robotics community in Arkansas and strengthen the relationship they have with the University in Fayetville.
FIRST trumps college sports, but... I won't be wearing the hat as my alma mater introduces themselves to the SEC this year.

As a student at Texas A&M it was a bit much ;P
But hey, gotta support your sponsors!

Everyone was very gracious about it and our sponsors did appreciate it - most of them had never been to a FIRST event before and the teams at the Ozark Mountain Brawl certainly made a very good impression on them!
