College Basketball Polls: Arkansas Razorbacks Get 8 Votes In Coaches Poll

New, 1 comment

The Hogs are at least on some coaches' radars.

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

We're still smack in the middle of football season, but that isn't keeping basketball from starting up. We're just about a month away from the first game in Bud Walton Arena (less than a month from the exhibition games).

That means it's time for the first polls to come out. Arkansas is hoping to have its best season in years and the Hogs are getting at least a little bit of respect in the first Coaches Poll. The Hogs got 8 votes, the only non-Kentucky or Florida SEC school to get any votes. And, no, Mike Anderson is not one of the voters.

Here's the full poll. Among Arkansas' opponents:

Kentucky is #1

Florida is #7

Iowa State is #14

SMU is #22

Dayton received 6 votes
