I don’t think most feel the wheels have fallen off. I think most are frustrated that with a team of 7 seniors we might squeak into the NCAAs. No one expects final fours every year but a sweet 16 would be nice every now and then. After non conference play, we had visions of a 4or 5 seed which would helped an NCAA run. However, we are staring a 9 seed in the face now.

Macon is playing really well right now. Barford has been slumping but played better Tuesday. We definitely need both of them playing well.  Everyone has been complaining about the pressure defense but I thought SC was the first game we’ve seen it full court in a while. Mixed in some matchup zone to get Thompson and Gafford in at the same time.
I remember the concerns early in the year about the minutes for Barford and Macon. Maybe Anderson scaled back the Full Court press to get the minutes out of them without using them up. It’s February now so no holding back. The Vandy game is huge, as they all are at this point.  I think we’ll see lots of full court pressing and pushing the tempo. That’s how the Hogs were rolling in December and hopefully they’ll get back to that.

Well that is how we roll against the overmatched which was most of our December schedule.  SC was an opponent to press considering how they turn the ball over, how poorly they often shoot and it was also in BWA.

There are degrees of pressing obviously. I’m talking the traps and denying the inbound pass. Early in the season they used their length to trap early and Beard was doing a good job of playing the passing lanes. Any full court in January was pressuring the dribbler and jump trapping near half court. I think we’ll see the defense we saw Tuesday again Saturday. Hopefully with similar results.

Arkansas last reached the Sweet 16 back in 1996.

That's 22 years ago.

How many current players on the team are younger than 22 years old?

Wheels have not fallen off.

Wheels burned away and have not been put back on in a couple of decades.

Current coach is in year 7, and still no sign anything is going to change any time soon.

THAT is the source of all the ill-will and discontent. No reaching the NCAA Sweet 16 for 22 years.

this is all so true to me, but i am just trying not to lug around this level of baggage.  Trying to focus on this year's goal at this moment. for me that is get to the dance.  And then lets see what kinda damage is done and to whom.

Anything less than the SEC regular season title *which now looks impossible* or making it past the round of 32 in the NCAA will mark this season as a failure IMO.

It will also make seven years into the MA regime with neither of those goals accomplished...

Ya, but lost 8 of the last 25.  You can't win if you're losing.

All I want is to be consistent.  Follow up playing a good game with the same fire and intensity the next game.  Don't come out and lay an egg... that is what most fans are used too & that's what most complain about.  I like the 3 game win streak, & it is vs. teams at the bottom of the SEC, but sometimes winning breeds winning.  A tough stretch coming up, but beat TXA&M and UK at home... now you've got some good MOJO going into the final few games.  Need to somehow get payback vs. Auburn, and then you can't get donkey whipped @ Bama & @ Mizzou.  Got to give yourself a punchers chance in those road games.

I'll say 2-3 for the final 5 games.  I like wins in 2 of our remaining home games... not sure which 2, and I just can't see us winning in Tuscaloosa or in Columbia.  The other home game, it's a toss up, could be a loss vs. UK or vs Auburn.

Most college basketball teams struggle with this. There's usually only one or two elite teams that play consistently, and even then, they tend to lay an egg here and there.

After starting 1-3 in sec play, everyone would  have taken 8 wins out of the next 11 games (which includes 5 on the road).

Coach A is getting the fellas hot at the right time.  Maybe all the naysayers will jump on the bandwagon in time for the SECT.  If we can get on a run there we could finish with a 5 seed, maybe even a 4 if we blow some teams out like we did the Aggies.

Another thing thats almost as good.  If we torch the Big Blue Babies we could actually knock them OUT of the NCAA tourny.

I will. I will. 

Theres always some extra room after a loss, its the best time to get on!

Tough loss vs Big Blue.  Should of won that one at home, but Im sure they felt the same way in 2014.  I fully expect to beat Bama and Mizzou, Auburn might be tough though.  Whatever the case, Coach A has done a masterful job getting a bunch of INDIVIDUALS to play like a TEAM these last few games.  Ive seen a decrease in selfish play from all but 1 Sr.  We will get a 10 seed and upsdet a 7 and a 2 on our way to the SWEET 16.  Woo Hoo, WPS Go Hogs Go
