Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long has never been shy about interacting with Razorbacks fans via Twitter.

In fact, Long's account (@jefflongua) is seldom silent, which made a lengthy absence after Arkansas' 34-31 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe interesting.

But Long emerged from his two-day social media hiatus late Monday night with a message for Arkansas fans:

"We're all disappointed in Sat., none more than S-A's & Coaches We will pull together not apart Join us for RedOut to show support for players"

We can only assume it means Long wants Arkansas fans to wear red to Saturday's game against top-ranked Alabama. A game that would've featured two top 10 teams and had ESPN's College Gameday on campus if not for the Razorbacks' epic collapse against ULM.

That's fine.

Just don't let Alabama hear you make plans for a blackout game (right Georgia?)
