Now with the SEC regular season in the books, the only thing to look forward to and getting the bad taste from the Mizzou loss is bowl projections. We have already compiled a lot of the bigger projections for the country. Arkansas most likely falls in the Pool of 6 bowls for the SEC, a repeat trip to the Liberty Bowl is extremely unlikely, and most places (and also myself) think that Texas A&M is the clear choice for the Texas Bowl. That leaves 4 options for the Hogs, the Music City Bowl, Belk Bowl, TaxSlayer Bowl, and the Outback Bowl.

It’s also that time of year Seniors will be prepping to get their draft stock up and a handful of Razorbacks will be participating in different games. Jeremy Sprinkle got an invite to the Senior Bowl where he will join Toby Baker. Three Hogs, Dan Skipper, Deatrich Wise, and Brooks Ellis will all play in the East-West Shrine Game. This year’s draft probably won’t have as many Razorbacks taken as last year, but still should have a couple taken off the board.

The SEC has long held claim to being the premier college football conference, but this year certainly wasn’t up to that standard. Edward Aschoff looks back at the year that was for the conference, which happened to be a whole lot of Bama dominance and a cloud of dust behind them. Arkansas found themselves for better or worse right in the middle of that cloud this season.

The hoops Hogs picked up their fourth win of the season, but again Moses Kingsley was not able to get into double figures. It’s still early, but the preseason SEC Player of the Year has not had the same start that he had last season. 12 rebounds last night were a welcome sight, but Kingsley is still struggling on the offensive end, averaging less than 10 points per game.
