Arkansas Prediction: What’s Going To Happen
This will be a whole lot of fun.
The offense will be high-flying, the defense will be all over the place in the backfield, and Arkansas will be interesting again after a dud of a 2017.
The system and the offensive coaching staff will make up for the talent – the skill guys just aren’t there compared to the stars of the SEC West. But the improvements on defense – and the experience returning – will mean a return to a winning season and a bowl game.
Guessing The Preseason Regular Season Win Total Will Be Set At … 7.5
After winning four games last year, will there really be a three-win improvement?
The Hogs should be able to get by Eastern Illinois, at Colorado State and North Texas for a nice base of wins, and they’d better get past Ole Miss, Tulsa and Vanderbilt at home. And then it gets tricky.
Where are the other victories coming from? At Auburn, Texas A&M, LSU, at Mississippi State or at Missouri? There’s no Georgia or Florida on an SEC slate that’s relatively manageable.
Yes, doubling last year’s win total is really possible.
