For what it’s worth I like it when journalists go out on a limb a little bit and don’t follow chalk…but 1-7 for the SEC? I know he would say it is all about the matchups but at some point I think you step back and realize “wow, I didn’t pick the SEC to win a single game outside of Bama.” Just hard to believe with the talent and the coaches in this league that March Madness is going to be a total bust. But…we’ll see.
By RPI, the SEC’s second best team is UT at #22. Of course, Arkansas has fallen like a hot potato. We were beat last week by the Aggies, the SEC’s #2 team by W/L record, but they were destroyed by Alabama. Outside of Bama beating Houston, not much good can be said about the SEC this season, thus far. [Maybe Tenn besting Kansas, but then they also lost to Colorado.]
I never get a good vibe after reading The Athletic when it comes to Arkansas
sports. It may be a personal injustice only but have difficulty accepting that as well.
And I definitely have disagreement issues with most all of Seth Davis’ articles…
