After reading Wally, and listening to Bo yesterday, it's obvious they believe Arkansas will beat Florida today. They watched the Florida game against Auburn on Thursday night and came to the opinion Arkansas might be a better team, and still has a chance of making the tournament.
I have no problem with that. Let's say Arkansas is the better team. All this talk about this team being young and inconsistent is a bunch of crap. They might be inconsistent, but it's not because their young, I can promise you that. If I were you I would be looking at the coach on this one. South Carolina was a young team. They started three freshman, a sophomore, and one Senior, and weren't even as talented as Arkansas. They definitely were a team Arkansas should have beat. I don't care where they played the game. It also goes without saying, LSU falls into this same category.
As for the game tonight, I don't know who will win it. I really don't care. This is a terrible conference that is rated seventh nationally in strength. It's filled with teams that aren't even mediocre. They're terrible.
That is why I think talk like yesterday is foolish by these men. All their doing is trying to breath life into John Pelphrey, and put him in a better light. Making it appear as if John Pelphrey really has it going in the right direction. It's not, people. Arkansas played the sixth easiest non conference schedule in the country earlier. That's out of three hundred and something teams.... Just because Arkansas raked up a bunch of wins against inferior talent, and are competing in a league that is pathetic, doesn't mean the Razorback basketball program is taking huge steps forward this year. And it most certainly doesn't mean John Pelphrey is the caliber of coach this program needs going ahead with the young men coming in. Fact is, he's not.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequeces of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of it's powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state."
