I think you're being wayyyy too generous. Arky will lose on the road at UK, @ USC and @MSU. They might pull off an upset against either UF or LSU at home, but I think 6-6 is probably most likely, 7-5 the best case scenario.

I think that Pertrino's system "might" kick in during the second half of the system.  Now, whether they will have enough talent to make it work, we shall see.  But you might be right, things might get ugly for the Hogs before they get better.

I'll say 5-7.  I expect Petrino to get it going in fayetteville and I will credit his coaching prowess for my predicted upset over Alabama but I don't expect arkansas to be very good this year given what was lost, given players having to learn the new schemes, etc.

There isn't getting around the fact that Arkansas doesn't have the horses to beat every team on their schedule.  And they don't have the depth to beat quality teams down the stretch.  Or at least that's what the paper tells us.

8-4 is a best case scenario.  That scenario being that Petrino's system goes into effect against Texas.  If Arkansas knocks off Texas, they'll beat Bama at home.  Which gives them the cushion to make the next brutal stretch work out "not too bad".  Meaning they should be competitive in that stretch.  

Now the issue I have with this is that Arkansas is SO unproven, SUCH a mystery, that they could very well have the horses in the stables and the depth to match and no one would know it.  Early indications are that the entire team has bought into Petrino's system VERY early on.  The weakest position being LB.  

I think reality will lie somewhere in the middle and 8-4 is a likely prognostication.  But on paper, right now, Arkansas is certainly one of the least impressive teams in the SEC.  The problem is that the paper is never right.  So watch out SEC.

8-4 is "likely"?? :eek:

I just don't see it! I don't see the Hogs beating any of the following...Texas, Florida, Auburn, South Carolina, or LSU. Wins over any of the aforementioned would be mild upsets at best. I see Bama, Kentucky, and MSU being toss-ups which leaves you with 4 definite wins. This puts the window somewhere between 4-8 and 7-5. This Hog team lost too much and is in a major transition period this fall. Time will tell whether or not adding Petrino was a good move, but positive results won't be showing quite yet!!
Phyllis-But it is a big deal. You almost killed Stanley.
Dwight-Yeah right! I filled him full of butter and sugar for 50 years and forced him not to exercise!

Like I said, you don't know anything about what the reality of the Hogs' status is, no one does.  They beat Texas and that automatically moves them  into the 7-5 to 9-3 range.  8-4 is likely with losses to Florida, Auburn, and LSU and then one more from the rest of the teams.  The Hogs aren't nearly as depleted as you think they are, they were largely not utilized last season.

7-5. will win 3 of 4 out of conference (lose to Texas), then 4-4 in the sec. Our offense will be fine, its our defense. We will be a worse version of Florida last year, having a good offense but no one on the defensive side who can stop anybody.

Granted, but the justification of your prediction is predicated on winning in Austin and yet you state at the same time that "nobody knows the reality of the Hogs' status", so..... which is it?? Sure, they beat Texas and I'll have to quickly change my prediction, but everybody is in that same "what if" boat at this time of year! :D All of that said, it sure seems like it's more often that people sell them short at this time of the year as opposed to giving them props, so..... Of course that was under Nutt though!!

We shall see!! :p

Obviously predictions based on paper are rarely right, as things just don't always play out like the stats would suggest. It is always a possibility that Arkansas could pull out a miracle and win 8 or 9 games... but the problem is, as you have already noted, they don't have the horses to beat everyone on their schedule. Arky plays the last 3 national champions this season. My god. Throw in tough road games against USC, MSU and UK.... then a home game against Bama who will likely be a 9 win team this season...  I just don't see 8 wins in that schedule. Not this year. There's too much recovery time needed after the departure of D-mac and Jones. Arkansas only won as many games as they did last year because they had a once in a lifetime player like McFadden. This year will likely be a long uphill battle for the hogs... things will have to get worse before they get better.
