My First Year: Arkansas’ Eric Musselman on Isaiah Joe, transfers and Undertaker
LINK

quote:

So again this offseason, The Athletic will check in with select freshmen and head coaches about their first year — the things they learned in Year 1 that will shape Year 2 and beyond. Next up: Arkansas coach Eric Musselman, who led the Razorbacks to a 20-12 season despite having no players over 6-foot-8 and little depth.

I have been so close to getting the Athletic a few different times but something always stops me

I renew on their half off sales they tend to do all the time.

Didn't they cut a bunch of writers? Have you noticed there being less content?

Yeah they trimmed some of the less popular teams. And no not really, about the same. Just less sports going on. Starting to get Cards stuff now and I like Saxon.

Always nice to see the hoops program get more pub.

Yeah, I've seen a few different articles about the team and Musselman over the last year or so

Thanks, going to give it a try

Thought I'd share this here since this thread already covers an article from the Athletic

quote:

By Dana O'Neil


quote:

Arkansas is going to be the surprise team in the SEC, isn’t it? — Bill B.

Arkansas will have 10 new, eligible players this season — four freshmen, three sit-out transfers and three transfers that can play immediately. Is this the biggest roster turnover in college basketball this year? Almost all of the 10 are highly rated recruits or have been, at the very least, moderately successful at their previous stop. With all the new faces and talent, how does Eric Musselman navigate the Hogs to a deep run in March? — Ryan R.

quote:


I’ll start with Ryan. Yes, no doubt Muss has assembled a lot of moving pieces to create a roster, but he did the same at Nevada to pretty good success. If anyone can juggle the collection, he can.

Musselman also didn’t just grab whatever guys he could. He went after talented players who addressed needs, and more who helped mend glaring weakness from last season — size and rebounding. Jalen Tate, who comes from Northern Kentucky, is 6-6; Justin Smith, who arrives from Indiana is 6-7; and at 6-9, Vance Jackson is a solid three or four.

As to your question, Bill, I think there are definitely pieces here to become a sleeper. Along with those experienced players, Arkansas adds a top-10 recruiting class, with Davonte Davis, Moses Moody, Jaylin Williams and K.K. Robinson. That’s a boatload of talent.

The big question is whether Isaiah Joe stays in the draft. He averaged 16 points last year and brings versatility, scoring and experience to the roster. If he returns, yep, this is a great sleeper pick. Without him, not a bad one, but not as much a sure thing.
