Will The Real Razorback Basketball Team Please Stand Up?
Talk about your Jeckyl and Hyde type season. I can’t figure out what’s going on with the Razorback basketball team this year.
This team started off the season playing UCONN close on the road (A Husky team many considered championship contenders before the season started), but since then has managed to lose to two of the worst teams in the conference by double digits in their house (Georgia and Tennessee) and has yet to even sniff a road victory. Up until Saturday, it seemed nobody could beat the Hogs in Bud Walton Arena, but Florida lit the Hogs up from three point land and cruised to a 30 point shellacking of the piglets in a game which you never felt Arkansas had a chance after the first few minutes.
At this point, I’m about ready to give up on any hopes for this years team. Coach Anderson’s going to have to find some way to light a fire under them the rest of the way if they have any hopes for post-season play. They seem to have regressed as the season goes on and now it appears even their home magic has left them.
Oh well. There’s always next year.
