    Nice Information, thanks for sharing. Hope we will read many other good things from you in future also.

  • Opinions vary this morning…Jerry Palm of CBS Sports has the Hogs in his first four out.

    While Joe Lunardi of ESPN doesn’t have Arkansas in his last 12 out.

      Hey, Sunshine, good to see ya here. Where ya been? The Razorbloggers have been pretty quiet this season. Hope all is well.

      I don’t make the kind of bank the big boys get to predict the future, but it seems to me that if the Hogs can win 2 or 3 of the next 4 plus a couple in the SEC tourney, they should make the cut. The late game collapse at Starkville troubles me, as the team has been streaky all season. Sometimes I think the team has turned a corner, then they go several minutes without a basket. There have been so many close games in conference play that I must rate the Hogs a mid-conference team. Also I worry about a late season slump, because of fatigue. If the Hogs are to advance, the bench will have to produce, the way Bell did on Saturday. IMHO.

    Our first win in Starkville in 14 years. Let that sink in for a minute….Perhaps the tide is turning.

      I would not put much in it, they have lost 9 straight but at least we are getting better. We do have a chance at ky on Thursday to turn the tide.

    I ‘ve been watching the Hogs all year, and they have gotten better. Still have a ways to go though IMO.
    I don’t think they have to beat UK in Lexington to be tournament worthy, but do think they have to keep it close and still win the other 3 regular season games, plus win at least 2 in the SEC tourney. That should allow us to sneak in.
