Re: Arkansas vs. Kentucky

We almost got through an entire conversation without someone finding the need to get snippy. Had to know that eventually someone had to attack someone else's opinion when they disagreed. Seems the way of the world. I don't care for 'that scheme' either. To earlier comments - agree ... I can't say 'n...

Re: Arkansas vs. Kentucky

-Enjoyed the banter this morning. The usual suspects (I'm counting myself in that bunch) holding to their long-standing positions. That's good to know - that we all are firmly locked in on our beliefs. :-) For General - I just can't buy in - haven't for some time. What Coach A is selling no one buys...

Re: Arkansas vs. Vanderbilt

Baked - Reading some entertaining stories on the Porter situation at Missouri. If it was true that he was practicing outside the lifelines of the team, that's not good news for him nor his dad (an assistant coach). If I'm the HC, I'm first wondering why he'd be doing that before the school gave him ...

Re: Arkansas vs. Vanderbilt

The numbers suggest the Hogs simply cannot afford a loss at home against Vandy. Most of the RPI projections would drop the Hogs into the 50s with a loss at home. I see this game being close at half as Vandy runs their offense and the Hogs chase. The 2nd half will be different ... the Hogs legs will ...

Re: Arkansas vs. LSU

For Baked, GH .. There isn't an ounce of any emotion in my posts specific to the Head Coach. None. Nadda. My views are tightly focused on the basketball product. I have the utmost respect for the program and Mike's performance as point for that program. I DO however not care much for the style and s...

Re: Arkansas vs. LSU

Following up on the conversation with GH and Baked ... the numbers ... after all of saturday's games .... has Arkansas sitting at 40 ... (insert an 'i said that would happen' here :-). But to the conversation, I agree there's the opportunity ... get to 20 wins and .500 in the SEC (stay in the top 8)...

Re: Arkansas vs. LSU

Rats. i was hoping we'd see a different outcome ... but the numbers ... once again .. didn't lie. With the exception of winning the boards, same-o, same-o. Well .. no 'o' to speak of :-) Who thinks the new AD is having buyers remorse after forking over the 2 year extension last week? Oh - and here's...

Re: Just not a very good basketball team right now..

The numbers tell the truth and the numbers ... well .. they haven't changed much this year nor during Coach Anderson's time with the Hogs. Thoughts to comments on this thread (if you care to read :-) 1) agree - Anton brings little to the game. He isn't defensive-oriented (he tends to switch too easi...

Re: Must Win vs Ole Miss

Good to see Arkansas pull back some from that trapping defense (maybe Mike's reading this board (ha)). As well, good to see a win. Had opportunities to make it a bigger spread but at this point. the RPI math isn't paying attention to close games or blow outs, its all about the W. So ... good there. ...

One Trick Pony Explained

For the General ... Admittedly an over-simplification, I refer to the style of the defense (which is arguably the calling card for Coach Anderson) as a one-trick pony. That one-trick pony defense leads to the shortcomings once in the half-court. It bleeds over to the offense where a consistent and p...
