Is Arkansas in the wrong conference?Immediate reaction to New York Times’s article

I got this article from someone I cannot name and are my hogs in the wrong conference.They have had just one top ten finish since joining the conference in 1991 with South Carolina,and since then has squandered time with Bret Bielema.While it would be easier in the Big 12,Arkansas get seven million dollars a year in the always dominant in football and baseball SEC.I mean at this point West Virginia and Texas are in the same conference but Texas A&M and Texas don’t meet once.Colorado’s move to the Pac-12 is difficult to examine.Former Arkansas player and (and Ole Miss) head coach Houston Nutt said “You’ve got to be better at recruiting and evaluating.” Which I mean in the backyards of powers Alabama,Georgia,Texas A&M,Florida,and LSU is really easy,Arkansas with former Texas high school and SMU Head Coach Chad Morris goes into the lone star state with just one game a year in Texas,in Arlington against old Southwest rival Texas A&M who’ve they have lost to,what six times in a row now?While analyists have talked about that it is great that Arkansas,Rutgers,Boston College,and Louisville (and Pitt,West Virginia,Syracuse and others) that they are in power five conferences,I think those programs would beg to differ.

College Football Week 1 Review:Notre Dame defeats Michigan,Tua steals the show against Louisville,and LSU rumbles past Miami

Notre Dame defeats Michigan,24-17.How will Michigan handle another bad start to a season?Can they pick it up and win a Big 10 championship for the first time in the John Harbaugh era?I don’t think so,the way this is going.

Four college prospects (all who are freshmen) who could land the NBA’s number one pick next June

Hey guys!Welcome back.Note:I’m just talking about one Duke prospect because that may bore you.

R.J. Barrett,SF/SG-Duke-Barrett is the most obvious nominee as he may not even be Duke’s leading scorer as the former number one player in the 2018 class after his reclassification from 2019.Barrett is a long wing with six-sven size and the ability to defend the one through the four.

Nassir Little,SF,North Carolina-Ten miles away from Durham,the extremely athletic and willing defender that is Nassir Little will be UNC’s best player (Luke Maye may have something to say about that).Little brings versatility but may not be able to defend any other position,other than the small forward.Little may have the best chances as Duke has many ball dominant player.

Bol Bol,C,Oregon-The seven plus foot center,and the son of former NBA giant Manute Bol,needs to gain more for his size of two hundred twenty-five pounds.Bol provides a reliable scoring option and is a great rim protector due to his height.Bol should be Oregon’s next star but may be the longest shot out of these four prospects.

Romeo Langford,SG,Indiana-Langford,and Cam Reddish,may be the best two scorers in the class.Langford is nice and tall for a two-guard,so maybe he will turn into as mush of a defensive threat as he is on the offensive side.Langford is a good ball handler,and should have many instances doing that in the Hoosier’s offense.

Others who could:Zion Williamson,PF,Duke,Cam Reddish,SG/SF,Duke,Keldon Johnson,SF,Kentucky,
