For some reason, that happens a lot whenever we do become ranked.

Miss State has had a cake schedule with their only loss being when Cincy drilled them in the only game they played against a decent team.

This needs to be a win.

Nervous about this game....Seems like a win if you look at their schedule, teams, stats, etc. But being Gafford's first SEC road game and the fact we don't play well there along with the fact that we go in with the ranked target on our backs has me doubting a little. Hopefully, they stay sharp and get off to a fast start and some early buckets. Those slows starts at home won't work out so well on the road. They should win.

We have been a lot better on the road the last few years.

Their next best opponent was SF Austin. Really bad schedule.

We have enough seniors on this team that we should be able to handle a little hostility. If the game is left to the skill of the players, I believe we win. WooPig and Woo22.

I would hope after they called us out last year in their win at Bud this team comes out for the kill.

However, Ms St is a talented team even if they haven't played tough competition yet.

I think it's better to catch them early in the conference season.

Theyve whipped us the last two times we've played. So we should have no trouble getting up for this one.

We are better prepared, but I wouldn't discount MSU because of their schedule.  Pomeroy takes into account their SOS and still lists them as the #34 defense.  It's not surprising that a Howland team defends well, and they play the type of D that given us trouble in recent years.  Like Houston they are probably laying in wait and have been able to focus on this game for a while with their crap schedule.  My guess is that they will defend well.  Their offense has not been impressive so far, but they aren't devoid of talent.  All it takes is for a couple of guys to go off at home, and we are in for a tough game.

By the numbers they look similar to Minnesota on D.  Our perimeter players need to have good games.  On O they are good inside but haven't been efficient from the arc and have suspect ball handling.  The favorable scenario is that our pressure takes them out of their offense, we get some easy baskets to keep the crowd out of the game, and hit enough treys to maintain control.  The miserable scenario is that they keep us stuck in the mud on O and hit some shots that they don't make every night.

People who vote on the top 25 SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO AT LEAST WATCH THE GAMES. Anyone putting Tennessee and Oklahoma ahead of us isn't watching US PLAY.

As long as Barford uses his bullRush to the goal scoring technique we should be ok in this game.

Every game in SEC will be a war, especially on the road. The good think is if/win we dance...we will be battle tested in close games. The young guys will be getting their baptism by fire in SEC play.

MD is not made up entirely of northerners. Not even close. Have you been there?

One of the announcers from the Tennessee game said something about if they could steal a road game early in the season it would be a great thing. I think the same thing about this game. Not necessarily a steal, because I think we are the better team, but road wins are hard to come by in this league.

OU and Tennessee are both deserving of those rankings.

But anyone who still has Arkansas outside the top 25 is likely not paying enough attention to deserve a vote.

If we hadn't lost to Houston, I could easily see us clocking in at #15 this week. I feel we would be above Seton Hall, Gonzaga, Cincinnati, Texas Tech, Kentucky, TCU, and Miami. Hopefully no more fluke losses set us back.

I don't expect it to be easy but to have a great season requires us getting tough wins on the road.  A great test tonight.  I think it could go either way.

Tennessee handled a very competitive Wake Forest team on the road and then nearly knocked off Arkansas on the road.  They're a good team and they have performed consistently well all season.  All the Hogs have to do is show that they can play like a top 25 team on the road this week and they'll start moving up in the polls quickly.  We'll have some answers here in about 8 hours.
