Arkansas continues to rise in the AP with their nine game SEC winning streak. This week, with big monumental wins over sixth ranked Alabama and a top 40 LSU team.
The final scores from both games may not show it but the Razorbacks were so much more dominant. Moses Moody, Davonte Davis and Jaylin Williams have all come along nicely during the streak and have helped push the Hogs up the rankings.
Not every AP voter were as high on the Hogs as many others. Check this out from Woo Pig on Twitter:

I am mot very familiar with many of these writers but the most notable is Jon Rothstein of The Athletic has the Hogs at 16. At least he had them higher than others but Eric Musselman: The Importer, deserves his team at twelfth.
Honestly, how high could they be if all the writers ranked them above 16 or more? I mean, Villanova lost to a bad Butler team. Check out what Ben Brandon said:
I'm so thrilled with the Hogs. #12 is awesome!— Ben Brandon (@BenBrandonHoops) March 1, 2021
With that said, Villanova lost to 9-13 Butler by 12 points and dropped from #8 to #10. Come on now.
“Come on, MAN!”
All joking aside, being the 12th ranked team in the country is plenty to boast about on a Monday!
