Basketball Preview Part 3: Loaded SEC makes for another challenging schedule

Basketball Preview Part 3: Loaded SEC makes for another challenging schedule

Last season, Alabama broke into the NCAA tournament field despite 15 losses and a losing record in SEC play. What put the Crimson Tide over the top was playing the nation’s third-toughest schedule as measured by RPI. And once again the schedule will pack a punch, although that comes mostly from a loaded SEC slate this time around.

Arkansas wrap-up: Bama wins big, but leaves for home with lots to fix

One of the great challenges of watching the 2018 Alabama football team play is convincing people that when the offense, directed by Tua Tagovailoa, is capable of scoring points at will, there remain significant areas of concern that could affect Bama’s march back to the college football title game.

Arkansas preview: Bama is catching Razorbacks in transition

Although the Bret Bielema era ended rather unceremoniously in Fayetteville, through at least the first four games of the year, Bielema suddenly looked like Vince Lombardi in the rear-view mirror as far as most Arkansas fans were concerned.

Arkansas lost games to Colorado State and North Texas. As bad as that was, the Mean Green of North Texas blew out the Razorbacks. The combination of factors necessary for North Texas to blow out an SEC team occurs with the frequency of ice ages. Apparently 2018 was the year of the Mean Green Woolly Mammoth.

This week, there is a fairly competitive slate of games top-to-bottom with the exception of Alabama’s road trip to Arkansas and Ole Miss hosting Louisiana-Monroe.

By Chris DePew TideFans.com Staff Feb. 24, 2018 Alabama got pushed around in the paint and couldn’t make up enough ground with a last-minute rally as Arkansas escaped Coleman Coliseum with a 76-73 upset.

Arkansas wrap-up: Tide’s biggest opponent is complacency

Against Arkansas, Alabama mixed in a complacent second quarter with three solid quarters of football and beat an overmatched Arkansas team 41-9, coming within one missed Razorback PAT from matching exactly TideFans.com’s predicted score in our preview. It wasn’t a win that’s going to win any style points, but style points don’t matter for Alabama, who has a guaranteed spot in the final four so long as it keeps winning. Alabama kept things simple, didn’t show much to future opponents and just bludgeoned poor Arkansas into pork soup.

Arkansas preview: Hogs lack the horses to hang with Bama

Texas A&M had enough raw talent, moxie and sense of duty and loyalty to the head coach to make life interesting for Alabama last week.

Arkansas does not. Or, at least, it shouldn’t.

There’s not an easy way to talk about mismatches that occur within the borders of the conference without sounding condescending, but a cursory look at where certain teams fall in the five-year rolling average for recruiting rankings tells the story. In Texas A&M’s case, the Aggies have been in the top third of SEC classes most of those years. For Arkansas, getting out of the bottom third even one out of five times has be
