Complete the Phrase:"Arkansas basketball is ______. "
« on: April 18, 2017, 08:37:56 pm »

Arkansas basketball is Nolan Richardson.

Arkansas basketball is 40 Minutes of Hell.

To ME, that is what Arkansas basketball IS and ALWAYS WILL BE. 

Arkansas basketball IS PRESSING AND TRAPPING FOREVER UNTIL THE WILL OF THE OPPONENT IS CRACKED LIKE AN ICICLE ON A COLD FEBRUARY DAY.   :razorback: :razorback: :razorback:

IT ALL BEGINS AND ENDS WITH NOLAN.  :razorback:

I love the fastest 40 so much but I hate so many timeouts and touchy calls, they should do timeouts every 5 instead of 4 minutes, it'll speed the game up more than you think.

...hopefully coming out of a 20 year hibernation.

The hogs should never be out of the tourney with the high school talent that the state produces.

Do you realize that fastest 40 has nothing to do with game play.  It refers to the first 40 minutes of practice smh.

All Razorback historians and knowledgeable fans recall that the 40 Minutes of Hell moniker came from a players comment about the strenuousness and fast pace of Nolan's practice regimen. The name stuck and CMA has riffed on it by using the Fastest 40 tag.

Dang WIKI...  His teams typically played an up tempo game with intense pressure defense - a style that was known as "40 Minutes of Hell."

But SB Nation supports your view...

"The first 40 minutes of my workouts is almost nothing to do with basketball - it's more conditioning drills," said Richardson. "Jump rope, we got a medicine ball, water balls, we run figure eights. We don't even shoot at the basket. So one of the player said, 'Hey coach, do we do this every day?' And I said, 'Yeah - you see how long it is.' I said, 'How long is a game?' He said, '40 minutes.' I said, 'We do it every day for 40 minutes then.' He said, 'Coach that's hell - that's like 40 minutes of hell.' I said, 'Oh really?' And I just dismissed it.

Sounds like you were right on the origin but it has since became known as the style of play of Nolan's Razorbacks.

It originated as a description of practice but then evolved into being the nickname for the up-tempo style of gameplay. Boy we can argue about anything nowadays...........

I can go with the "40 minutes of hell" thing. And no that doesn't mean full court pressing all the time. That just means 40 minutes of high octane pressure defense period. No matter what defense your in. Pressure bust pipes.

26-10 and making it to the field of 32 is far from average my friend. That's a winning percentage of 72%. Just saying...Carry on...

I'm not talking about the smaller schools playing in smaller conferences either ;). I'm talking about schools playing in big name or power conferences that aren't playing cupcake schedules to pad their win total. I don't remember him putting a time frame on it either :-\. I've come to a conclusion about you. There just isn't any help for you. Your anti-Arkansas. Every time someone says something positive about them you have to come back with something negative. I'll pray for ya. God bless!! ;D

Whenever you get through with the negative energy 16 games over .500 is pretty good.

So, if they are back with one nccat game win, what does that make SC, with a elite 8? Guess Northwestern is "back" too. Rhode Island and USC as well.

Oh, and we heard the same thing 2 years ago after the one NCAAt win over Winthrop, then we got a big fat nothing the next year.

Dude, we've made the NCAA tournament 2 out of the last 3 years. Kill it please. Your making yourself look bad. I felt the same way 2 years ago until Portis and Qualls both left. We'll see what happens with Barford and Macon. Arkansas is the type of program that needs continuity in order to be at our best.

Funny thing is the OP completed the phrase with a coach that's been gone 15 years and a "style" that really has not worked in almost 20 yrs.  But pointing out what the program has been the last 10 years is what makes someone look bad?  Ummm, ok.

paying a certain unnamed person to gin up support of the coach on message boards, using old style bully tactics, good old strong arm tactics, and must be paying by the keystroke, which is the only thing that can explain not using spaces after periods.... to keep Mike Anderson in place.  A bonus will be paid out in a lump sum if Anderson retires as the coach of the Razorbacks.

Any style can work if done correctly. You just have to have the right pieces in place to play that style and if not you have to change some things up. And I think Mike proved this year that he can change some things up if need be.

Emotionally gut wrenching. Feast or famine. Aggravating. When we win, my mind has conditioned itself to ask, Why can't they always play like that. And when they lose I want to punch a wall. I've gotten to the point that I don't watch or listen to live broadcasts. I check to see if we win before I watch replays. It's the only sport on the hill I do that with.

He did win a few games ( 260 at Arkansas ) and had a .780 win % here. But I guess that's not good enough.

That's pretty good in my book. Like I always say. "Just Win Baby" I don't care how you win, just win. Winning is the only thing that matters to me. I don't care how you do it.

We had fun under Sutton but my gosh we played sorry schedules year after year while he was here. His win totals and % are bloated to say the least.

Under Sutton, we were not considered a threat nationally outside of Super Sid's senior year to anyone living outside the confines our state borders though. When we went to the Final Four with Triplets, it was considered a MAJOR upset when we beat UCLA and we were easily the more talented team.

We would enjoy some nice rankings, don't get me wrong, but those rankings are worth the same as today's.

Sutton was fun but definitely a cut below that 5 year run Nolan put together in the early 90s.

For the younger generation that was born and remembers Razorback basketball after the Eddie Sutton era all they know is the Nolan Richardson "40 Minutes of Hell" era. So you really can't blame them for their perception of Razorback basketball. He set the bar pretty high for the new crop.

Here's the deal. If AR fans would ever let go of the fact that we'll most likely never compete for an SEC or nat'l championship in football and throw our energy behind basketball, we'd be much better off. It was said on the radio recently the the UofA is a football school, but Arkansas is a basketball state. MUCH more basketball talent in this state, but we're so obsessed with football that basketball suffers.

The potential is there for AR basketball to be very good every single year. But kids just don't see the same passion from fans about the Bball hogs as the do for the football team.

So my answer to the fill in the blank is

Arkansas basketball is ... a sleeping giant.

Arkansas basketball is a roller coaster ride...sorry but true.  Half the time it feels good, half the time it makes me want to puke.  I'd like to be a more consistent program.  I'd like to have a more balanced roster year in and year out.

A rollercoaster.

improving if only slightly and slowly.
maybe about to be relevant again finally. 
little better than mediocre if you want to be really optimistic.
blah.
uninteresting.
irrelevant.
a has been program.
rarely able to beat or be competitive with the top teams played. 
better than when Mike was hired.

Arkansas basketball is "needing continuity".

One good season needs to follow another. Sustained success.

These rumors about Macon are making folks very antsy. Losing Hannahs AND Macon would be a blow. That was your 3-pt shooting last year.

I actually like CBB, it was more of a jab at hogsanity because he preaches that he is just being "critical" or objective but when you read what he posts in the football forum he seems very much pleased with a coach who is putting up mediocre numbers. Spare me on the comparison of conferences in basketball and football. The SEC was very very close in having multiple final four teams, and two of the toughest games for UNC in the playoffs came at the hands of SEC teams.

improving if only slightly and slowly.

blah.
uninteresting.
irrelevant.
a has been program.
rarely able to beat or be competitive with the top teams played. 
better than when Mike was hired.
Safe to say one could swap the football and basketball programs and both would fit. Baseball and track are the two lone standouts.
