The linked schedule still doesn't reflect one of the exhitbition-game opponents, but we now know all 31 regular-season opponents, sites, and dates ...

The linked schedule still doesn't reflect a home game against Georgia Tech on December 19, and it's still not reflecting one of the exhitbition opponents, and it's got some of the dates/games out of chronological order ... BUT, we now know all 31 opponents, sites, and dates ...

First impressions ...

The non-con is interesting, not great but not anemic, either ...

* Texas in Armed Forces Classic at neutral site (El Paso) on ESPN to start the season on Nov. 9 ... this is actually about 3 days later than the official start date for the 2018-19 season ... gives a team with 8 new faces a chance to get a little more practice time, but would you rather have a home game against a Texas State first?
* Road games against Colorado State (December 5) and Texas Tech (Big XII-SEC Challenge on January 26) ... is a split too much to ask?
* Home games against Indiana (Nov. 18), Western Kentucky (Dec. 8th), and Georgia Tech (Dec. 19) ... if Hogs can take at least 2 of those 3, that's good for a young team
* Texas-San Antonio in NLR on Dec. 15 ... no TV, no marquee name, no surprise
* UC Davis, Montana State, UT Arlington, Florida International, Texas State, and Austin Peay all at home in Nov and Dec ... can Hogs sweep these games (plus UTSA in NLR)?

SEC slate is brutal ...

* Home-and-away against Texas A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Vanderbilt ... a split seems doable, anything better would be gravy IMO
* Florida at home on Jan. 9, and its the first time since the 2013-14 season that Arkansas won't play in Gainesville ... Hogs finally broke thru at SECT to snap an 8-game losing streak to the Gators, but an early conference game against a brand-new Hogs' backcourt makes me think the edge should go to Florida.
* Road games against Tennessee, Auburn, and Kentucky just feel like losses right now, probably lean the same regarding the road game at SCar, although that's early February and Arkansas will have half the SEC slate behind them, so maybe experienced enough to win on the road in the SEC by then?
* Home games against Georgia, Mississippi State, and Alabama are winnable, but if you ask me now I'd guess 2-1 would be best-case scenario

Not having seen this team play yet, let alone get practice reports, if I had to call it today just looking at the sked I'd predict 17-14 (8-10 SEC) or 18-13 (9-9 SEC) ... if the latter happens, Arkansas could be on the NCAAT bubble going into SECT.

This is where it's done... 6 or 7 wins is almost a must, if you are getting to double digit wins in the SEC .. the magic bullet/# for NCAAT... 10-3 & 10-8 is in like flynn.
