Baller’s 2008 SEC Football Preview: Arkansas Edition

Posted by Baller on June 11, 2008

Editor’s Note: Discuss this article NOW over at ACC vs. SEC! – Baller’s AVS Official 2008 SEC Preview: Arkansas Edition

2007 Record- 8-5 (4-4)
Returning Starters- 12 (5-Offense, 5-Defense, K, P)

Players To Watch Out For: Jonathan Luigs, DJ Williams, Casey Dick, Adrian Davis, and Michael Smith

Key Losses: Darren McFadden, Felix Jones, Marcus Monk, Michael Grant, and Matteral Richardson

2008 Strengths: The Hogs lost anybody and everybody from their 2007 squad. But two areas Bobby Petrino will not have to worry about are the two most important spots on the field, offensive line and defensive line. The hogs return skill, speed, and experience at these two spots.

2008 Weaknesses: The running back position is obviously going to be a weak spot for the 2008 squad. Also the wide-receiver position lacks experience and the offense will surely falter very quickly if Casey d**k does not learn the playbook fast. On defense, Arkansas lost its entire secondary, so look for them to give up more than the 205ypg they averaged in 2007.

2008 Overview: Arkansas has a favorable home schedule with UF, Bama, Ole Miss, and LSU all coming to play in Arkansas. But add in their road schedule, Texas, Auburn, UK, SCar, and MSU, and the Hogs will be lucky to come away with 5 wins in 2008. Good luck Bobby, you are gonna need it.

    I agree with you on the Hogs. They lost too much talent and don’t have the pieces to compete, especially against their schedule.
