When the bracket first came out, I think it was Seth Davis that picked us to beat Butler and Purdue on the selection show. Kenny and Charles also picked us to advance past Butler.

If we decide to play like we did against Auburn and Florida, we'll be in the sweet 16.  If we play like we did against Missouri, then we're going home.

Seth Davis has us going to the Sweet 16. He says:

"I conveniently ticked off two fan bases (Butler and Purdue) when I picked Arkansas to go to the Sweet 16 during the selection show, but hear me out. First of all, Iíve liked Purdue all year and said I was openly rooting for the Boilermakers to go to the Final Four. But I saw them play twice in person, and I came away suspecting they would be vulnerable against teams that had a lot of perimeter athletes. Arkansas has that in spades, but what it really has is 6-foot-11 freshman center Daniel Gafford. Most teams have elected to play Isaac Haas straight up, but Gafford is the kind of player who could really do it well. And if the Razorbacks can neutralize Haas with one guy, that would give them a huge advantage. Remember, Arkansas nearly knocked off North Carolina in the second round last year. That team is very difficult to prepare for on a 48-hour turnaround."

Bilas just said the seeds should be reversed to general agreement of everyone on the ESPN set.

The popular vote is showing Butler as the most likely upset.

No one has to be a great fan of MA and I am certainly not but his record as a 1st round favorite at UAB, MU, and Arkansas is 6-0.  He draws mid-range seeds and gets by round one to lose to a top team in round two.

On Friday night when we were playing beautiful basketball against UF on both ends everybody was watching Duke - UNC.  Then we got to play a #3-seed on 15 hours rest, which they all saw. We didn't play well.  Shocking.  The notion that Arkansas was no better than a #10 seed after going 8-3 down the stretch with wins at Bama (#9 seed), A&M (#7 seed), Auburn (#4 seed), and at neutral UF (#6 -seed) is a load of crap.

Bilas said before the Tennessee game that Barford and Macon were playing great basketball.

He obviously hadnít watched the first two sect games when Macon was struggling.

If those two both hit on all cylinders, the rest of the team just play consistently decent, a sweet 16 could happen......at least.

If we decide to play like we did against Auburn and Florida, we'll be in the sweet 16.  If we play like we did against Missouri, then we're going home.

If we are moving the ball and playing good perimeter D we really should be able to beat Butler.

Purdue is another story. If we play our best game we could still lose. Itís absolutely winnable but it isnít as simple as saying weíll win if we play like we did against AU and UF.

I just cannot wait for Friday. If we beat Butler I really think Iím gonna head up to Detroit on Saturday.

If we play like we played against AU and FU, and play good defense, we can play with anyone in the country.  Stop drinking the Purdue kool-aid

Purdue does a couple things very well that seems to give the Hogs fits. They shoot the 3 extremely well, and they are tough on the boards.
