I don't think that S. Carolina will be as big of a factor as some think.

I point to the outcome of 4 games:

TCU, A&M, Auburn and LSU.

An Auburn win at home carries a lot of weight and cures other things.

JMO mind you.

I would throw TCU in there. South Carolina is a must win. We can lose, and most likely will, to LSU and auburn and still have a good season.

Oh it totally does but I don't think the season hinges on it. Of course the records of both teams by the time the game gets here could sway that either way.

All opinion of course but my reasoning is that A&M has been such a thorn and Auburn will always be a biggie.

Those two wins would "help" if we fell in games like TCU or SC.

I know if I have to pick 2 of the 4 mentioned, I take the 2 I mentioned.

Of course, I want all 4 though. :)

I feel like those are 2 different conversations. Haha. Want to win VS need to win.


I think we can all agree A&M needs to go down this year.

I'm not sure why I think this, but I believe that this will be the season of the unlikely and improbable for Arkansas. Not just because they need to win, but maybe because I think it just sets up that way. Keep in mind that 2 out of the last 4 years when it seemed like Arkansas had no chance, we had every opportunity to beat Alabama. We didn't, but the opportunity was there nonetheless. If you can beat Alabama you can beat anyone on the schedule. I just think it is our time and that the oblong ball finally takes bounces in our favor at key times.

Phil Steele said he could see us going anywhere from 5-7 to 9-4. I think I see us going anywhere from 7-5 to 10-2 depending on the odd bounce of that oblong ball.

6-6 season with loss to A&M would put CBB in first place...on the coaching hot seat.

Another season under .500 in SEC.

Losing to TCU and Texas A&M means we are most likely 2-2 before going on the road to play South Carolina.  Also we have a bye week before playing Texas A&M. So we really need to at least win the Texas A&M game.

I'll say A&M and SCarolina.  We win those two and we start the SEC slate at 2-0 going into Tuscaloosa.  Lose that game and we are 2-1 going into Auburn game.  I will take that right now.

Agree.  If the team gets these two and one of LSU or Auburn it would be a fine year.  I think they can get all four if the cards are played right.

I fully subscribe to the 1-0, one game at a time or philosophy that Coach Bielema preaches.  I try not to look ahead.  That being said, the team needs to make a statement that they are physically and mentally tougher than they showed in 2016.  In my opinion, that opportunity comes September 23rd in Arlington against A&M.

Being 4-0 in the non-conference is the first must, but beating aTm and USC and starting the conference season 2-0 is absolutely critical and could set the tone for a 9-10 type season. We all know the struggles with Aggie of late, so that's my first critical game. Going on the road to Cocky is also big, but not as mentally challenging as beating the Ags has been.

Well if the team starts off 0-1 then I am pretty sure this place would be shut down for a couple of days because people would be extremely pissed.

TCU and A&M

Loser of the A&M game, I think the coach will be gone at the end of the year.  Might finally be the year we beat them.

USC should be a win.  They aren't a contender in the East.

Auburn, LSU, and Bama I see us struggling with as I think they'll finish 1,2, and 3 in the West.

A&M absolutely. I would throw in South Carolina and Mississippi St. before Auburn though, just because Auburn's expectations are so high for the season. If those expectations pan out then a loss to them isn't so bad.

Because if we lose to TCU it sets up for a terrible season.  The TCU and aTm games are the ones that will set the tone for the season period!

Bielema and Staff have 2 weeks to prep for aTm.  If we lose that game after a bye week a 6-6 season is a real possibility IMO.

But I don't disagree that other games have strong meaning.

You are missing research.


TCU lost the least amount of production in p5 schoools this year.
TCU won 23 games in 2014-15
TCU added Sonny Dykes and Sonny Cumbie is considered one of the brightest young coaches in the US.


Not afraid of dykes? You forgot what Texas friggin Tech did to us then talked smack about afterwards? Will we win? I dunno. But I'm smart enough to research all the teams before I put out an ignorant blanket statement.

 Extremely pissed probably doesn't even come close to what would be. Jeff Long would be lucky to just be fired.

You guys short selling or down playing Auburn haven't been paying attention.  I see them in the top five, along with Bama.  I see three losses, Bama, Auburn, and LSU.  We can and need to win all the rest.

Ignorant blanket statement? I asked a question, bud. So what if TCU won 23 games between 2014-2015? Completely irrelevant. They're coming off a 6-7 season with some pretty ugly losses. They only averaged 16.5 points per game over their final four and I'm supposed to be worried about returning "production?" This is also the same team who beat Kansas by one point. Beat A&M and a loss to TCU becomes easy to forget.

Sonny Dykes hasn't been at Texas Tech since 2010 and his last coaching job was at the University of California where he was fired. No, I'm not scared of Sonny Dykes.

A&M & Auburn

Need both.

I think it'll be TCU and A & M.  If we win both, that'll be a good sign.  If we split again, it's more of the same nonsense.
