Because it''s Arkansas...
« on: October 27, 2017, 07:30:34 pm »

Lots of hype for the Hoop Hogs. Lots of folks excited.

Because this is the Arkansas Razorbacks, and I have repeatedly learned my lesson, here are my real expectations.

Hogs will be mildly disappointing.  Not consistent. Good enough to get hopes up a few times during the season, but not good enough to deliver on those hopes.

Won't be ranked. Will be low seed and early out in NCAA tournament, that is if they make the field of 66 or whatever it is now.

Won't gel together well. There will be maddening, inexplicable losses in what should be sure wins.

There will be a few wins they should not get, but somehow will anyway.

Will not win the SEC title, neither regular season nor conference tournament.

You might be right but youíre not a psychic or anything for predicting it if it turns out like you say it will. Truth is, nobody should know what to expect.

The last 5 years hasnít been terrible. So you are saying that Mike Anderson is a bad head coach?  The 2 of the last 3 years was better than what we have seen in awhile.

I wouldnít worry about his opinion anymore than the next poster. Heís entitled to his prediction. He could be right. Iím guessing we are better than he expects.

It can lead you to think we have had poor leadership all the way down the line. We should pay an AD for more than getting building projects completedb

He has the right to post.

It surely does come off as an attempt to put a damper on those of us who are excited and I donít get that. But itís his opinion. Now you have to decide if his opinion means a damn. I like the poster. But this post of his sucked, imo. But I do respect hm anyway.

Not bad. Just a little above average:

Itís progress.  We are talking about a program that has been mediocre for awhile.  We will be seeing the similar things with football soon if we keep a crappy coach for much longer.  At least in basketball we have a coach getting us out of being just mediocre and starting to move us to above average.

I wouldn't discount the pessimism. That is how things have gone recently. In order to break out this team will have to play as a team, find an identity, be tough and find someone who can take the clutch shot. A tall order-we'll see. Mike is recruiting better, hopefully he starts holding his team more accountable on the court.

Your right but other than Kentucky the whole league is a big national disappointment.

Is that really some bench mark for success or just an indication of how bad the conference is that we play in?

Don't really believe what you just said. Let's see I thought SC and Ky went pretty far in NCAA tournament. Actually the conference  should be stronger this year than last.
