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.

we always struggle in starkville.  corliss and scotty teams struggled at the dump.  not sure what it is about that place.

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.

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.

• 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.

Um, Tennessee was 19, lost to us at home, and only dropped to 23.  Maybe we'll be at 25 next week if we beat Auburn on the road.  But, that's going to be a tough one.

If we beat Auburn we'll stay ranked. I think that's a given.

Beating Auburn is not a given, however. They look a lot better than Mississippi State.

If we don't play beyond the shit calls, we will not get a win there.

Somebody said it the other day: If we can't blow them out on the road, we will not get the calls and be allowed to win. The refs own the game, regardless of sport. And by God you (Arkansas) better know your role, and shut your mouth.

Apparently we were in this same situation 3 years ago as my memories on Facebook brought it back up.

“Dear AP Press, please stop ranking us in the Top25 before we play a road game. That’s twice this season”

Some things never change.

Hey you never know, we might be ranked if we win both home games this week over a 10-4 team and an 11-4 team.  8-)

13-4 with an RPI in top 20 might do it.
