finish there?    When was the last time both our BB and FB team did this?   Most of us have more hope with our fb team because it seems like Morris is recruiting better players.    Is MIKE giving us this hope for the future?  HOW?

It's sad that it's even a possibility. Understandable for Chad Morris, but for Mike in his 8th year? Unacceptable.

Arkansas is 1-2 like 5 other teams in the SEC. 3 other teams have not won a game. Arkansas has been in every game with a chance to win. Make a big shot, get a stop and make free throws they're 3-0. We're closer to being at the Top of the SEC.

Dan gets that last dunk and gets absolutely hammered, blow a dang whistle and somehow Gafford makes his and-1 and we win.

I figure we’ll finish around 11th in conference. 6-12 conference record feels about right. Makes for a 16-18 regular season.

Stop. Basketball won’t. The league doesn’t have that horrific bottom feeder.  There is a lot of parity.  I still see the Hogs finishing above their 10th place prediction.   Ole Miss’ start though is one team we weren’t expecting.   UGa and their frontline will win some games too.

The sad part is that we need to go at least 5-4 on the road to make up for the two home losses we already have. Winning road games with a youthful team can be difficult. We could afford to lose one home game because we had won a road game to equal it out but you can’t lose home games. It is going to be a tough row to hoe for this group to finish .500 in the sec

That would take away one of hogville biggest excuses if it happens. What argument will be made if he's never had a losing season is taken away?

Seriously why is the football program held to a different standard?  We need new blood in the basketball program.

Standards have definitely been lowered but we will see what HYs standard is soon if season plays out as one of MAs worst.

I’m afraid that like others before me have said, that we’re most likely gonna have to wait for him to retire unless he has a couple losing seasons in a row.

Could happen. Meanwhile a transfer QB for football team that finished 2-10 is generating more interest in offseason than Hogs BB team in the middle of conference play.

For you maybe... For me this team is fun to watch. Name one game this year that we had ZERO chance of winning...

Expectations are fine and they have been elevated for sure. But who put them there? It wasn't Heath or Pelphrey. Just saying.

And before you beat whatever drum it is you have just know I was a Texas fan before I went to the U of A 😁. And missed this whole "we used to be good" thing you all have going

Our BB team will be fine.  Like old Nolan was fond of sayin', "All sickness is not death."

My goodness, y'all need to relax.  Come down off the ledge.  We'll probably end up in the middle of the conference.  Not as good as we hoped, but not as bad as we feared.

No, you see that is apparently called apathy. Or you can even go by the motto, If you're not first you're last...

But many people forget

Ricky Bobby: Wait, Dad. Don’t you remember the time you told me “If you ain’t first, you’re last”?
Reese Bobby: Huh? What are you talking about, Son?
Ricky Bobby: That day at school.
Reese Bobby: Oh hell, Son, I was high that day. That doesn’t make any sense at all, you can be second, third, fourth… hell you can even be fifth.
Ricky Bobby: What? I’ve lived my whole life by that!

We're much closer to 0-3 than 3-0. We will be 1-3 tomorrow. We have lost 2 conference home games and 4 on the season. the time for moral victories in our BB program are long past.These are the cold hard facts

I guess not.  I think they'll be fine.  Three games into the conference and some of you have them dead and buried.  Small sample size, huh?

Nope, apathy would be not caring about the record.  Which I do certainly care about, especially if they can get to the NIT and play a few more games to develop.

I'm definitely NOT apathetic about your avatar.  I'll rec the daylights out of that every day and twice on Sunday.

Team is now playing like freshmen.  It played much better than that the first 5-6 games of the season.

I think that's due to two things.  The opposition hasseen what Joe can do if he's left open, so they play right in his grill...and he's no threat to drive on anyone.  If he gets hit by a pinky, he bounces off and loses his dribble.  That effectively eliminated a potential weapon.  We haven't seen the same defensive intensity we saw to start the season.  I really feel like once Mike identified the starters, we saw the team lose their edge. 

I don't think Mike is doing a great job with who he has in the game at the same time.  We are pretty potent when we have Gafford, Chaney, Jones, and Joe on the floor.  We're just missing one cog in the wheel, and hopefully someone will emerge and we'll have a starting 5 that can play with about anyone.  From there...the bench has to step it up enough to at least get quality minutes to rest them. 

This team...does not have the scoring firepower to play the 40 fastest minutes.  Maybe in a year or two they will, but not now.  I think we would do better with a little slower pace, feeding Gafford, and playing more straight up man without all the trapping, and as much switching.  We get exposed by Gafford ending up out at the 3 point line on the switches, and we'll lose a lot more if that continues.
