His twitter handle makes sense as it’s the last four digits of his last name. However your circle’s nickname for him is certainly also appropriate as proven recently by his 7 fouls in the Red-White game in 27 minutes of play.
He does play like a “manimal”. And, I’m really glad he plays for the Hogs and not our opponents.
Marcus Carr still in college?!! Sheesh. Seems like he’s been playing college hoops for like a decade now started at ISU I think. Doesn’t seem like Texas has much size on frontline. Advantage Arkansas I would guess although Bishop could be a problem.
Texas will be a handful because they are an experienced team and that means they’re going to be great on defense especially with Beard as their coach… this will be a very good game to learn from win or lose.
My early gut feeling says Texas wins this game by about 5 or 6 points. Experience usually wins out over young talent early. But come March…likely a very different outcome if these two teams match up again.
I hope you’re right bayou. I think there’s going to be a learning curve to get our offense and defense flowing the way we want to. Muss said today that the defense is not where he needs it to be. Texas with their experience and hard nose style of play may give us fits trying to run our offense… but if we play with the intensity that I know we can it should be a great game.
This is going to be in front of a sold out arena of fans who hate us, and will be looking for revenge for the beatdown we put on them in football,would be extremely tough for a very experienced team much less one still trying to figure everything out
Oh how I would love to see that brother!! Win or lose, the game it is going to be a great teaching tool for us. We will have been in a very hostile environment before the season even starts! I think that is huge for this team… this team has a lot of individual talent.
The key is can we mold them all together and get them all on the same page on both ends of the Court…I think if we are good enough to go into Texas in front of a sold out crowd, opening up a brand new arena,and beat them! Then we are further along then the last 2 teams and we know how well they’ve done… I just wished it was going to be televised
