ARE YOU A CHICKEN? Is what people asked Chris Mack about playing Kentucky and doing it on “Convenient Cal’s terms,” and it appears that’s going to happen.
So who else could Louisville hypothetically schedule form the SEC?
Why not keep things the same as they were on the original Louisville basketball schedule and find a way to play against Arkansas?
In Erik Musselman’s second year as head coach he possibly has one of the most intriguing teams in not only the SEC, but in all of college basketball?
“did he really just say Arkansas is intriguing?”
As the Arkansasians would say “Jerk a Knot in Your Tail” because yes, Arkansas is going to at least be fun to watch this year as Musselman deploys his notorious “transfer ball” style. You’re not familiar with transfer ball? Phew, buddy… For your sake I hope Louisville gets Arkansas just so you can see what I mean.
At Nevada, Musselman became known for his ability to land the highest profile transfers time in the portal and in two years at Arkansas he’s proven that it wasn’t a fluke or location that kept things moving.
So far Musselman has landed eight transfers total at Arkansas, headlined this season by Jalen Tate (Northern KY), Justin Smith (IU), Conner Vanover (California), and Vance Jackson (New Mexico), all of whom will be apart of this years team.
Also did I mention that Muss reeled in the nation’s 8th best recruiting class according to 247 Sports, which features star guards Moses Moody and KK Robinson, as well as big man Jaylin Williams.
Much like with the other names on this list, the matchup against Arkansas would be one that would put this young Louisville club to the test. Muss’ teams are always very good at forcing turnovers and playing elite level defense, without making many mistakes. We’ve yet to see how a young Chris Mack-led team will fare early in a season and this matchup would only make sense if it were on the schedule.
How about since Las Vegas is cancelled we move this party to French Lick, Indiana… I’ve heard some call it the Vegas of the Midwest.
