Dead last, as we should be. I heard the sportsbooks had our win total set at 4.5....about right from what most on the board have predicted for the year.

Don't see how they'd have us any higher than last overall.

I imagine they will predict a 100% increase in wins for the year, which at 4 still puts us dead last.

14th

Nah.. I figure about 12-13.  They always have more of axe to grind against someone other than Arkansas.  They will have to pick some team over that team.  Consider it bonus points in a way.

14th

Some will probably leave the 14th slot blank and write us in for 15th.

I really don't want to be perceived as being a male "me-too'er", - - - - but "LAST".  We should expect that, based upon last season's performance.

However, - - STARTING ranked last does NOT mean that we SHOULD - or WILL -  necessarily END UP ranked last at next season's conclusion.  That's what I'm counting on.

The Hogs should be last until they prove different. If I was a coach or a player that would really Pi$$ me off. Tacklin Fuel!

Any pundit that ranks us above 12th going into the season would need to have their head checked.  On paper, we are definitely bottom 3 after these last two seasons.  Realistically, we will win one SEC game or at most three.  I think only Vanderbilt and Ole Miss are expected to be that bad also.  Of course, someone else may suck more than expected but thatís hard to predict.  If we finish 6-6 or 7-5, we will be ahead of projections and will be picked marginally higher next year which is shaping up to be the year we just might blossom into a competitive team once again.

2 things that hold us back the most
-Oline starting quality and depth
-LB starting Quality and Depth

The 2 issues were painfully obvious during the spring game and the media will seize upon that to vote us 14th.  I know I would if I were in the media.   I also think the media will seize upon the new QB starter and completely write him off, but I differ with them on Hicks.  QB, Oline and WR were major problems last year because our Oline almost got the QB killed and seldom gave him time to find an open receiver.  Our QB didn't know the offense and wasn't good enough to compensate for the Oline and WR failures at times. 

Hicks KNOWS the offense and can get us out of bad plays.   Hicks allows the playbook to be opened up too.  The Oline had too many injured/missing guys this spring to get a good read on them. 

It all comes down to the Oline giving the QB time and running lanes for some very good RBs.  The Oline can improve but how much?
-If the Oline gets everyone back from injury
-What happens at Center with Clary, Robinson or even Clenin
-Jackson's light comes on
-Clenin has been here long enough it is time for his light to come on
-Nwanna catches up
-Capps now has some experience but does it let him play without over-thinking?

The media types aren't completely negative and this one thinks we could be a Surprise team.

You know, it wouldnít be impossible for us to be the surprise team but until we play a few games, Iím just going to keep my expectations modest.  We have some talent.  If everything cane together just right and we caught a few breaks, we could win a few games we think are marginal right now.  I mean, hell, we are due.

The media won't give us much improvement because of the recent class but it will make an impact.  I'm not as positive about the Oline as the writer but I get it.

When we are picked at the bottom, Hogville will explode about how these national pundits don't follow Arkansas and don't understand how good the undersized 3* out of East Texas is going to be.

I will say this: Anyone who believes those JUCO OLinemen were just brought in just to ad depth is seriously mistaken. I wouldn't be at all surprised if one starts at Tackle and the other at guard opposite Capps.

No better than 12th, likely worse.

If they were grad transfers I would be more optimistic, but it takes a lot a JUCO guys a while to get adjusted.  You really don't see them peak until year 2.
