Very little love

Look at the brackets by some talking heads. Only Dennis  Dodd has us winning two games. Most don't think we get past Butler

We don't match up well with Purdue if we do beat Butler. Purdue has good size inside and has the 2nd rated perimeter attack. We are ranked 223rd in 3 point defense. Horrible match up for us.

From Bleacher Report Feed:

No. 2 Purdue

As long as the Boilermakers navigate Cal State Fullerton—and hey, like we said earlier, assume nothing—they'll have a favorable second-round matchup. Arkansas and Butler rank 223rd and 311th, respectively, in three-point defense. Purdue and its second-rated perimeter attack can shred either program.

The 7-10 game is always a trendy pick.

Nobody gave the Hogs a chance against UNC last year and it took a screw job for the heels to move on.

Sports journalists are always biased to the Big East because ESPN is HQ'd in CT, and plenty of others journalists live/work in those areas.

Who cares.  In four days we will know who was right.  Pundits' opinions won't change the outcome one iota.  If we're better, we'll win.  If we don't, we weren't.

Right. All Arkansas fans should be so used to not getting "love," their emotional armor is a foot thick.

Time to play the games, the talking heads with the suits are paid to sit there and act like they know what they are talking about, only to have their brackets destroyed after the first day of games.................

Hah hah hah. All Sunday evening was one big cry fest about how the ncaat committee ripped off the hogs, set us up to lose, etc. Their emotional armor is about as thin as cheap tissue paper.

The very 1st thing that was said about the region the Hogs are in was by Seth Davis and he said he thought the Hogs would go to the sweet 16 with wins over Butler and Purdue.

I have watched Purdue twice this year.  They can shoot lights out and the Haas Kid aka Dolph Lundgren will give Gafford a lesson.

I watched them 3-4 times also, and they looked tough.

If anything, St Mary's got no love. Top 25 and is not even in the tourney. I'll take 1-5 more games.

Both Kenpom and Fivethirtyeight which use mathematical models have Butler ranked higher than Arkansas. In other words, Butler is the favorite.

I have not seen Butler played, but it looks like the NCAA did not do Arkansas any favors.

I saw them play twice late in the season and they looked like a 9/10 seed. They are by no means bad, but not great either. I just do not think they do the things well that the Hogs really struggle with. They are not beastly on the boards, they shoot 35% from 3. Their guards are good but, at least the 2 games I saw, I did not think they were all world or anything like that.
