I like part of the data. What I fail to understand is why SOS teams above us are so far over rated. As well as the top 25. I’d like to see the hogs play Wichita State every year. Just to shut loud mouth Greg Marshall up.
The pundits use all of the data to their advantage. I know as well as God made green apples that come time for the big Dance our hogs will be in the same region as North Carolina. Our seed will be lower than we deserve as well.

If you click on the first link listed (the ESPN), a link to Lunardi’s bracketology is on there. He currently has us as the fifth seed in the West. UNC is the third seed. So, maybe Lunardi realized AR has to beat UNC to advance in the tourney. Good thing about them being the 3 and us the five, we wouldn’t play them until the Elite Eight. Oh and Wich St is the two seed

The hogs should be able to play there way to the 3 or 4 seed. But no matter what we will be in the region with North Carolina.
Wichita State won’t get a seed any higher than the Hogs. They are serious over rated. I just hope we win the the games we are suppose too.
This is a sweet 16 year.

One more power rating. Also 21st.


And 26th in ESPN’s BPI rating:

BPI, by the way, gives us a 71% chance of beating EOE-K next week and makes us a 6.3 point favorite in that game.

I would like to see us play Wichita State, Bradly, and Butler. We could have a good Home & Home series. OU played WSU at WSU and beat them soundly.

Greg Marall made a comment a couple of years ago that he would schedule a home and home series with anybody in the country. It would be good to see us play them. I agree with you on Playing Butler. I don’t realize what Bradley team your talking about!
Our schedule has improved but there still room to make it better.
