My neighbor is an Arkansas grad. Lives five houses from me, we play golf together at the same club (he has a razorback cart and mine is Black and Gold) and both are retired from Army Aviation. He is also making the trip to Jacksonville, we are traveling seperatly cause I hope he is the one to come home early.

I saw the bracket from the NY Daily News Sports section had Wofford beating Arkansas and losing to UNC.

GO TERRIERS.................See you in Jacksonville.

I know we haven't been given a tremendous amount of love by the media for this game- Lappas and the NY Daily News notwithstanding. However, I believe we have an incredible chance to win.

This is going to be a game of tempo dictation. We have been pressed and played up tempo teams already this year -see top 35 tempo teams- VMI, Iona, West Virginia and ETSU. The only one we didn't do well against was WVU.

I am cautiously optimistic, too with our defensive help that we play against good guard play. Add that we are a veteran team and have a Socon player of the year who can shut you down defensively and I like our chances.

I saw a brief interview with Arkansas' coach and one of their top players. The coach was effusive with praise for Wofford and indicated that he knew we had a good program which made me happy. Then the players interjected that he'd "never seen us and never heard of us" which made me even happier.

Arkansas may have a roster full of five star talent, but we have a roster with five star heart and so long as that is the case, then Wofford has a chance. We'll see who delivers "40 minutes of Hell" on Thursday night.

I saw that interview too. I get the feeling that the Hogs players will not listen when their coach tells them how good we are. They consider us a joke. They are already looking ahead to UNC, Wisconsin, etc. This means we have a chance if we play well. If I were a Wofford player, I would definitely consider the "I've never seen or heard of them" quip bulletin board material. It would make me angry and fire me up that I was regarded that lightly and flippantly. Of course, I'm guessing geography isn't this guy's strong suit. He probably couldn't even locate South Carolina on a map, let alone tell you where Spartanburg or Wofford is, so I'll give him a little bit of a break. :mrgreen:

Can't find the video, but the article below references the quote. Scroll about 60% of the way through the article. It's not as offensive in print, but trust me, there was plenty of tone and inflection in the real statement. Either way, so long as they see North Carolina looming, I think they'll be somewhat distracted. If UNC loses to Harvard or struggles, I bet they come out against us as if they've already advanced to the Sweet Sixteen.
