Arkansas unveiled details of an estimated $300 million plan for athletics facilities, including the enclosing of the north end zone at Razorback Stadium.
The plan released Tuesday could take up to 30 years and affect each of the university's 19 athletics programs.
In addition to the end-zone enclosure, the plan also includes a basketball practice facility near Bud Walton Arena, an academics and dining center, and renovations at the baseball team's Baum Stadium and the indoor and outdoor track facilities.
Athletics Director Jeff Long also included plans for a 5,000-seat competition venue for sports such as gymnastics and volleyball, as well as concerts. Those sports use Barnhill Arena, which Long said might have outlived its usefulness.
Never miss a local story.
Long, who is in his fourth full year in charge of Arkansas athletics, said there is no timeline for any of the projects and that the plan is a "wish list."
He said each project would be completed as demand warrants and money would be raised through private donations, ticket sales, television money received from the Southeastern Conference and sponsorships.
Muschamp apologizes for 'just the language'
Florida Coach Will Muschamp apologized Tuesday for his colorful words that were caught by television cameras during his team's 17-6 loss at Auburn last week. But the emotional first-year coach said he has no plans to temper his sideline antics.
"Just the language," Muschamp said. "It's hard when you've got a 6-year-old and a 10-year-old at home, and you've got to go home and explain to them what you said. So that's not good, and that's not how we're going to run our program. That's it."
Moseley Auburn's new QB
Clint Moseley is a small-town guy about to arrive in college football's big time. The sophomore quarterback for No. 19 Auburn will make his first start Saturday at No. 1 Louisiana State.
"It couldn't get any better," Moseley said Tuesday. "Aggressive defense. No. 1 team in the country. All the hype coming up to it. It's Death Valley. Yeah, it's a little nerve-racking but, at the same time, how could you draw it up better?"
Moseley is replacing Barrett Trotter, who started the first seven games but completed only eight passes in the last six quarters for the nation's 106th-rated pass offense. Moseley, a 6-foot-3 223-pounder from tiny Leroy, Ala., has attempted nine passes, and all four of his completions came when he took over in the second half of last weekend's 17-6 win over Florida.
■ Everett Wess, attorney for the man accused of poisoning the trees at Auburn's Toomer's Corner, asked a judge Monday to reduce the charges to misdemeanors. He filed the motion on behalf of Harvey Updyke Jr. in Lee County Circuit Court. Wess said in filings posted online Tuesday that the state of Alabama "has explicitly set the value of an oak tree" at $20, which would be below the level for a felony.
■ Auburn guard Jared Cooper will miss the rest of the regular season after undergoing surgery on his right leg. Cooper started the first six games at left guard before the injury.
Tulane coach resigns
Tulane Coach Bob Toledo has resigned after another slow start, Athletics Director Rick Dickson said Tuesday. Dickson said he and Toledo mutually agreed the coach should resign after a 15-40 record in four and a half seasons.
