Title: 2017-18 Hogs record prediction
Post by: redleg on October 05, 2017, 11:32:10 am
Looking at their schedule, http://www.arkansasrazorbacks.com/sport/m-baskbl/schedule/, I predict that the Razorbacks will finish the regular season with a record of 24-7 overall, 13-5 in SEC play. Losses will be UNC and Ok St in non-conference, and at Auburn, at Florida, at Texas A&M, at Ole Miss, and Kentucky in SEC play. Anderson's teams always seem to find a way to lose 2-4 games that they should win every season, and I think Ok St, at Auburn, and at Ole Miss will be those games in the 2017-18 season.
Arkansas should receive a bid to the NCAA Tournament regardless of what they do in the SEC Tournament, although one or two wins in the SEC Tourney in St. Louis would help their seeding.

A Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tourney is possible, with a final overall record of 27-9.
Jalen Barford will be at least 2nd Team SEC, and Daniel Gafford will be on the SEC All-Freshman Team. Coach Anderson will finish second in the SEC COTY voting to Alabama's Avery Johnson.

I disagree on the five games above with the final record being 30-6.

I am not convinced that Arkansas can go to Oxford and win a game. For some reason, Ole Miss has had the Hogs number for over a decade now. It's very frustrating, especially since Ole Miss basketball should not be considered on the same level as Arkansas, and the Hogs should beat the Rebs 4 out of 5 games.

This crew can score the basketball. I think it's addition by subtraction losing Dusty Hannahs as at the end of his career at Arkansas he was letting loose with shots where only the ghosts of Al Dillard could make them. I say we win 32 games this year and make a helluva run in the NCAA tournament. Maybe even Final Four.

Well, tbh when Macon and Barford announced they were coming back, I did briefly entertain visions of the Hogs cutting down the net in the championship game again until I read a few threads on here. But that's what Hogville is for, to dash our hopes against a stone.

You know, it may seem irrational but when the Powerball or Mega Millions gets up to half a billion plus, I buy a ticket. I know its almost guaranteed I won't win but up until the moment those bouncing balls dash that madly hopeless optimism, I know there is a chance no matter how slim. So, dream away fellow pig trail traveler. Dream away.

Lots of high expectations for HOG fans.  Don't get crazy and try to get someone fired if they don't meet those unrealistic expectations. 

We lost 3 very important players.  Moses Kingsley was an experienced post scorer, defender, and rebounder.  Dusty Hannahs changed how the other team played us defensively every time he was on the floor.  Manny Watkins was a glue guy who did whatever he was asked to do.  Those kind of players aren't super easy to replace with inexperience.

If we win 10 non-conference games and 11 SEC games pre tournament, that's a good season.  Our record would be 21-10 going into the SEC tournament.  Anything less than that would be disappointing, anything more would be a pleasant surprise.
Title: Re: 2017-18 Hogs record prediction
Post by: redleg on October 17, 2017, 11:19:23 am
I think Arkansas is a little better than that. The 2 and the 3 are strong this year, but someone is going to have to step up at point guard and help out Beard. The 4 is looking pretty good too if you count Gafford at that position (but I consider him a center). None of the power forwards are a threat from 3 point range, except maybe Hall or Bailey. Thompson is going to have to step up and help Gafford in the paint!
I feel that scoring in bunches during those runs that Arkansas has throughout games, and playing solid team defense from start to finish, will be the difference between only winning 20 or 21 games and barely making it into the NCAA Tourney, and winning 26 or 27 games and finally making it past the 2nd round for the first time since 1996.

Nothing wrong with thinking highly in your expectations...Just dont get carried away. Those three played big roles but Manny played some good minutes down the stretch. Dusty and Moses I was left with wanting more from those two.

Hall is already a better Watkins but not even close to as experienced, Beard has lost 20 pounds and looks better than ever, only question I see is if Gafford and Thompson can step up be a Kingsley

Gonna have some quality wins with that record. If they can limit or not have any "bad" losses, that is an easy tournament team a la Vanderbilt from last year. With the right wins and losses, I think this team could be safely in with 19 wins pre-SECT.

Joel Berry broke his hand today and will be out for the beginning of the season so if we happen to play UNC in the 2nd round of the early season tourney, that has become a very winnable game based on him being out and what they lost to the NBA last year (Tony Bradley and I believe at least one or two more solid players) as they try to work through chemistry issues with a bunch of new starters.

The reports I'm seeing online state he'll be out four weeks, which leaves the possibility he could be back to play against Arkansas Nov. 24.   If Berry does miss the game, UNC will be without its top five scorers from last season's team.   Yes, could be a big break for the Hogs.

Post by: mhuff on October 26, 2017, 04:33:29 pm
I have yet to see consistent play offensively or defensively by a CMA team. Whether we can play consistent defense is going to determine our win loss record. As long as the ball goes inside, I believe the offense will take care of itself. Gafford will be a target that I believe his teammates will take advantage of.  I also think the PF position will contribute significantly, especially when Thompson is on the floor. If you put a SF in there that can score, we will be ready to rock and roll because our guards can take care of business.

This is the year that CMA has to show good coaching ability. He has the talent to run people off the floor if they are properly coached.

I mean, he said 25-28 with a nice tourney run for this season. Yes, he did type the words "next year" but I think you're making something out of nothing. Don't we want to have a good season and still improve the next season? Isn't that always the goal? Not sure where the "crap" is in his post. He wasn't punting this season and putting all on next season, which is what "wait till next year" truly is.

I don’t bet. But I’d consider betting this prediction is off.

Do you bet?

If this season happens, Mike Anderson deserves to be fired, especially considering the overall talent and depth that they actually have on this team. I still say a minimum of 22 wins is very likely, but I can see as many as 26 in the regular season. Not sure what that guy is looking at. I would say he might be over-estimating the value of Hannahs and Kingsley, and under-estimating the value of Barford, Macon, and the new players.

MA has a chance to win some support back with a good season. If he starts out slow you can be sure there will be complaining. Anything less than tournament and it will be ugly.

Early tough schedule concerns me. If we start off with a few good surprises BWA will be rocking early. I think that's key.

Not a big believer in MA but loved last years run. Keep it going coach.

You may be right on both but I'm having a hard time with a Mizzou loss, even though I'm hearing they have a really good class coming in.

Pre season first team all American is a Mizzou freshman.....?

there was constant complaining during the 27 win season with Portis and the 26 win season last year. Of course some here will bellyache. We already know. The question is how many sheep follow.

We will not go undefeated. There will be player substitutions some won’t like. There will be some open shots made against us and we will miss some open shots. There will be some bad rotations on D. There will be some gambles that don’t pay off. We will blow some layups. Somebody will take too many shots. Somebody else won’t take enough. We won’t rebound as well as we wish.

Welcome to dangnear every team in the country. Bet our fans freak out more than dangnear every other fan base.

So true.  The facts are pretty clear:  MA has been a big upgrade for our once floundering program.  But that doesn't matter to a small but vocal minority.  For them, if he doesn't win 'em all he should be fired.

9-4 non conference

11-7 conference record

20-11

Anderson's lack of good half court offense will keep them about the same as the past. Most likely an NCAA Bubble team.

Don't freak out if we lose a game this weekend. We are short on depth, still trying to gel together, and we are playing a couple teams projected to finish top 2 in their league.

Wow a lot of you guys are optimistic. I think this team is probably about as good as last year, maybe slightly better. With the OOC schedule we are playing, 9-4 is equivalent to the 11-2 we had last year. We play 9 Top 100 teams in our OOC, with only 5 of those games being at home, and two of those are lose-able as we host Minnesota and OSU. How often this century have the hogs ever done well in non-conference play against quality teams, especially away from BWA? Maybe the fluke UT-OU season and the time we beat Michigan? The SEC will be slightly softer then I would've thought 3 months ago due to the investigations, but is still more improved overall.

9-4 Non-con
12-6 Conference play
1-1 SECT (probably get a 4 seed, lose int he semi's)

22-11 going into the NCAAT

Schedule allows us to be a 7 seed. Lose in the 2nd Rd to the 2 seed.
