This team didn’t pile up the quality wins last season, but great returning talent and a deep recruiting class has nearly every Razorback hole filled. They’re not about to compete for the SEC title, but they do have a shot at finishing in the top half.
The recruiting class is uninspiring, but I love this team's depth. There are talented options at nearly every position, meaning Arkansas is ready for the SEC long haul. Just like last year, this group will get stronger down the stretch.
I have a really good feeling about this team (especially Ryan Mallett), but they also have plenty of potential to make me look really stupid.
