It’s Almost Here

Posted by Brett Kincaid on January 27, 2011

Fear not, Razorback fans.  While the basketball Hogs may bring you down this winter, hope is on the horizon.  Arkansas Baseball returns to action next month.  With a bevy of newcomers, this crop of Razorbacks promise to continue the tradition of superiority at Baum Stadium.  Baseball America, the premiere provider of college baseball news, is not overly impressed with the aforementioned newcomers.  The Hogs did not crack their pre-season Top 25 rankings, which were released today.

Several familiar faces did, and many of the SEC teams Arkansas faces this year are included.  Florida tops the pre-season charts with defending champion South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and LSU also in the first group of rankings.  I expect Arkansas, Mississippi, Auburn, Alabama and Tennessee will visit the Top 25 at some point this year.  And after taking its lumps last spring, Georgia is poised for a big turnaround in 2011.

Arkansas opens its season Feb 18 at home against Delaware State.  Follow this link for the full schedule.

UPDATE:  USA Today released its version of the Top 25 today with Arkansas making an appearance at #24 in the pre-season.
