10-2 Florida. 15:50 to go in the 1st half.

Arkansas' playing terrible D and can't hit a shot. Not a good combo.

We're staring 0-3 in the SEC right in the face.

The Gators can't keep Fortson out of the paint. He's looking good.

Yeah, he started out with a couple of bad TO's. But, he's settled down and has been causing trouble since then.

We are the worst foulers in the league. We have to lead the league in and-1's.

If you're going to foul, FOUL!

Me and my $15 would appriciate it if Arkansas can keep this close. That's all I'm asking....

Welsh fouls a 3-point shooter for the 2nd straight game. At least he didn't follow it up with a tech this time.

37-34 Florida. Halftime.

This is about as good as we could ask for in a road game @ Florida. We need just stay in the game and then make plays down the strecth.

UF is going to go on a run eventually, and go up by 10, 11 points. We need to be able to stop the bleeding and not let it get to 17, 18 points and then make a run of our own.

The Ghost of Stan Heath has struck Arkansas. We're back to passing it around the perimeter until the shot clock gets to under :05 and then we jack up a shot.

Memo to Pelphrey, you may want to put someone on Nick Calathes. He's single-handedly beating us.

The job they did on Forston in the second half was impressive cause that kid is very good. Washington really battled to keep Arkansas in it in the second half.

I am proud of the effort from the basketball team. Arkansas is a good squad and its a strong win.

What has happened to Arkansas? They beat 2 top 10 teams and they fall flat on their faces..... I didn't watch the first half, because I had something going on, but I love the way Calathes is playing..... he's very underrated and should be in the conversation for best PG in the country...... He can score, rebound, and pass...... I'm also loving the way Erving Walker is stepping up..... and Kadji has been big for us so far in SEC play..... once Parsons, Werner, and Hodge find their stroke we'll be dangerous in the SEC tourney and maybe even the NCAA tourney.... also Tyus is playing better than I ever expected him to....

like i said..it's called playing above your head....Ark got hot at the right time and caught 2 good teams cold at the right time.

Hence the :zipit:.

But, at least we know our ceiling isn't just getting to the tournament. We've been a top 10 team before and we will again.

I think teams now have a blueprint on how to play us. Pack it in tight and keep Fortson out of the lane and Washington from getting a lot of easy shots.

When Rotnei and Welsh aren't hitting from the outside, which they haven't over the last 3 games, we're a very easy team to defend as they are our only outside threats.

Until they start hitting their shots - and Rotnei had 3 or 4 wide open 3's that he just missed - we're going to struggle.

We were one of the top 10 (maybe top 6 or 7) programs from 1978 - 1998. There's no reason why we can't get to that point again.

actually there are plenty of reasons y'all may never get to that point again and I think it starts with coaching hires.

Since we signed Tyus, I knew he would be a big time player for us. I loved his skill set. He is very good. He is only in his second year and its really coming together for him.

Yeah, any coach should be able to replace their top 7 players and not miss a beat. :sarcasm:

We'll be fine. Pelphrey does need to find someone that can defend the post though.

Very impressive showing for the Gators. Nice to see progress. Not sure what happened to the Hogs...they were never really in this game...mentally, that is.

Pel is a very good coach. He will get it going there when this team has some seasoning next year, especially if they find help for Washington inside.

like i said..it's called playing above your head....Ark got hot at the right time and caught 2 good teams cold at the right time.

The stats don't show that. OU's BGriffin had his average 21 points and 13 boards, OU's guards dropped in 13 3's, etc. Texas shot poorly, but so did AR. They outrebounded us by 13. Neither OU or Texas were caught off guard or put in bad performances. The difference is we have abandoned what helped us win those games. The talent is there, but playing as a TEAM has been shoved aside.

There are also some serious chemistry problems behind the scenes and we have have guys who have thrown fundamentals out the window. Plus, our effort in SEC play has been about half what it was in December. Pel has his work cut out for him.

batman is a broken record...comes in talking big...Ark then does not perform(thought that was AK's problem) then he disappears.
