Has Arkansas a 6 seed in the Midwest

When the preseason sec projections came out, I said I’ll believe Ms. St., LSU and Vandy finish above us when it actually happens.  Katz agrees

I’m sorry to tell you but Texas and Indiana are better than 8 SEC teams right now, and we are just going to get better, Mike’s teams always do.

Maybe those teams are better but it doesn't mean we will be successful in conference play.  I'm not sure if it's the familiarity, the crowds, or the officiating but when SEC play starts I often fail to recognize the team we saw in the first month of the season. 

Not sure if I can agree that Mike's teams always get better.  With a senior lead team, we got blasted by a 10 seed in the first round of the NCAA tourney last year. 

All that negativity aside, I think our fortunes are looking up.  Going into this season we had to wonder if Gafford would have any help.  The new kids have chipped in a lot of production.

it is totally possible i am wrong about this, and given the "nature" of being a hog fan i wouldn't be surprised if i was, but something about this team feels different.  I feel like they have "gelled' what ever you want to call it better than previous ones, they appear to have found and embrace their roles, sure they are young and will improve and i am not saying Ship or bust, but watching them play so far outside of the FT's it is calming for the first time in along time.

I would love so much if they got in to the big dance in tulsa that barely over an hour from here, and KC would be amazing as well.

Got to go to Omaha for the first time this year, and if they play in Tulsa i will definitely be there.

Yea we always seem to stumble out of the gates when SEC play starts.  Then we get on a run and finish above .500.  Hopefully we start strong this year...first three games (from what I can remember) look very winnable.

Cart way ahead of the horse, but if we somehow made the elite 8 in Kansas City the place would be a sea of red

That would be a dream location.  Great city, great amount of UA students and alumni, great venue, and great nostalgic B-ball town.  Great food; BBQ, Bristol's, and the Hereford House.

Nice that the kids are getting noticed for their early season efforts.  I will keep banging the same "we won't know anything until SEC play" drum. 


I agree! Let's not forget that two games (Texas and Indiana)  were indicative of how games will go in the SEC. Both games were close and went down to the wire. In the SEC, for the most part, this will be night in and night out. It's one thing to play Texas and Indiana close in nonconference with easy games in between, but to face that type of competition almost every game will truly let us know if this team is for real. I never played basketball at that level, but I've watched long enough to know that the grind of playing tough games back-back-back with a short turnaround can be tough for young players to overcome. However, it would not surprise me if this group finishes 12-6 or 13-5 in conference play. If we finish 10-8, I still think it's a successful year for a team that had a major overhaul.

6-1 right now and I could see the rest of the season shaking out similiar to:

W- W. Kentucky
W- UTSA
W- Georgia Tech
W- Texas St.
W- Austin Peay
W- @ aTm
W- Florida
?-  LSU
L- @Tenn
W-@ Ole Miss
W- Mizzou
L- @ Tex Tech
W- Georgia
L- @ LSU
W- Vandy
W-@ S. Carolina
W-@ Mizzou
W- Miss St.
L- @ Auburn
W- aTm
L- @ Kentucky
L- @Miss St.
?- @ Vandy
W- Bama

That's 22-7 with two toss ups for either 22-9 or 24-7. I think that either of those records would firmly put us in the tourney and if we manage 24 wins before the SEC tourney we might be looking at a 4 or 5 seed.

WAYYYYY too early, I know (heck I only had them winning 15 to 19 games prior to the season), but looking at how the rest of the SEC has fared so far I'm not sure that this is too far off. Having to play at Auburn, Kentucky, and MSU to close the season out will be brutal. We need to make sure we take care of business against aTm, Vandy, and Bama because we could also play ourselves right out of a bid at the end of the season.

Most reasonable minds thought 18-19 wins and anything better than 8 sec wins was gravy... didn't take long to ratchet up expectations...

Texas has lost 3 in a row to Michigan St., Radford, and VCU. They play Sunday against Purdue, so they could be looking at 4 in a row.

Texas has talent. Majorly underachieving with it. Shaka's seat could be warming. Keeps getting top recruits though so I think he will be given time to coach Baker and the others. If he can't win with them, he's out of there.

I don’t know if the record will indicate it but to my eye this team is better than last year. They play better on ball defense and most importantly this team is unselfish. It’s now pass pass pass, no more dribbling for 25 seconds then putting up a junk shot.

You are absolutely correct. I think that there is actually a selection committee statute to that effect.

Lunardi has a team we beat at home as a 6 seed and a team we should have beat but lost in overtime as a 7 seed but doesn’t have us in. I really don’t think he is paying much attention to what is going on.

This team has the looks of a final four team in two years, if only we could have Gafford the next two.

Nice to be off to a good start.  Still, smart to not get too excited just yet.  Have to see how we handle the consistency of solid or better competition that comes in league play...true road games in particular.

We are 1-1 against major competition.  Both games could have gone either way.  Things look promising, but we just don't know for sure yet.

With this record we'd have a chance in the SECT to play our way in... 1 win probably..2 wins definitely... 21 wins at anytime and we are in..... worst case, 19 wins after the sect is 50/50...

I agree we are ok, but I disagree about it being an awful loss. Admittedly, my standards are different. Any loss at home to an unranked team, I consider it a bad loss. Any road/neutral site loss to a team under .500, I consider it a bad loss.
