If we go into Miss St and beat them I’ll go full AP and claim we’ll be a final four caliber team by the end of conference play.  I fully expect us to struggle on the road early in conference.

Would be really nice to sweep next week. With what happened in Houston,  I’d be surprised if we come out flat on our next road trip.

Seen it too many times.

And this year there are truly no gimmes in the conference.  I don't care how ugly the win is, but we really need these next 2 games to show we can win on the road in the conference.

If you think you're above failure, you'll always be beneath success.

Yeah, the Mississippi State game worries we way more than the Auburn game. We've done well against Auburn despite how bad we've been on the road in recent years.

We do seem cursed against MSU on the road and any SEC road win is difficult.  However, MSU SOS is like 345 and the only game I’ve watched was their toughest game on the road an Cincy.  Cincy won by 15 and the game was never in doubt.  ESPN is showing us as favored by 4.5.

I was just stating “paper facts”, Buh-locky. Even our best teams have struggled there so I’m in no way suggesting a win. I’ll take an ugly 1 pt win down there any day.

Don't you love how we always get good when the conference is stacked and suck when it's trash?

In both sports, think about how many times we’ve played the eventual national champions. USC was winning 5 games when we scheduled a home and home. Texas comes on as they make a title run. Florida is on our schedule when they have Tebow.

The #Fastest40 Facts
• Arkansas debuted in the AP Top 25 Poll on Monday for the first time since March 2015, checking in at No. 22.
• The Razorbacks have a 396-111 record all-time as a ranked program, including a 5-2 mark under head coach Mike Anderson in SEC road games.
• Daryl Macon was named SEC Player of the Week on Monday, joining current assistant coach Scotty
Thurman as the only Razorback players to ever earn the award twice in a three-week span.
• Dating back to 2015-16, Arkansas is 8-3 in its last 11 SEC road games, including a 6-3 mark last season.
• Following Saturday’s win at Tennessee, Arkansas’ RPI jumped from No. 15 to No. 4 according to the NCAA, while its strength of schedule is at No. 16 in the nation.
• The Razorbacks have two AP top-20 wins in the last five games and multiple top-20 wins in the same season for the third time under Coach Anderson.
• During the last four seasons, Arkansas ranks second in the SEC in league wins with 35. Mississippi State ranks 12th in the conference with 19 victories.
• For the first time since the National Championship run in 1994, Arkansas has scored 90-plus points in nine of its first 13 games.
• Arkansas is one of three teams in the nation to rank in the top 10 in points per game and assist-to-turnover ratio, joining No. 4 Duke and No. 25 Creighton.
• The Razorbacks lead the SEC and rank No. 9 in the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio thanks to 115 assists and just 50 turnovers in the last six games.
A Win Would
• Give Arkansas a seven-game winning streak in five of seven years under Coach Anderson.
• Send Arkansas to a 2-0 start in SEC play for the second time in the Mike Anderson era and the sixth time since joining the league 27 seasons ago.
• Give Arkansas a victory in its SEC road opener for the third time in the last four years.
The Best Guards In The Nation
• In the upset win against No. 19 Tennessee, Daryl Macon’s 33 points and Jaylen Barford’s 28 points marked the first time Arkansas has had two 28-point scorers in an SEC game.
• Against current AP Top 25 teams, Barford (22.7) and Macon (22.3) have combined to average 45.0 points per game in three contests.
• Barford is the only player in the SEC to rank in the top three in points per game (3rd) and field goal percentage (3rd).
• Against Tennessee, Daryl Macon became one of six players in program history to record multiple 30-point games against SEC opponents.

Another 6-3 record on the road this year would be good enough for a 3 or 4 seed in the big dance.  Maybe better.

True. Doesn't make my call any less true.  We can both be right you know.
