Very good article. I am so proud of the Hogs. A key call that was not made near the end was an obvious charging call. The best team yesterday is on the way home. Thanks Hogs for a great season. Thanks Wally for your wise observations

One of Wally's best. Couldn't agree more. We get the shaft when we play elite teams and have for years. What can you do?

The NCAA should be more concerned about the terrible officiating in this tournament, and less concerned about flags and what bathroom a weirdo uses. And yes, if you are man who thinks you are a woman, or vice versa, you are not dealing with a full deck!

Lets not blame the officials on losing the game. They certainly didn't help but neither did
getting out rebounded by 10 boards.
I didn't see the officials score a single one of those last 12 points Carolina scored and I
didn't see them miss those last two free throws for us.
"Losers look for someone to blame. Winners fix what needs fixin!"
The Hogs had a pretty good year and we should be proud and hopefully next year we can be a better seed and won't be facing a #1 seed in our second game.
As an Auburn friend recently said to me, "It's time for Spring Football!"
"Love dem Hogs!"

Proud of the Hogs and I enjoyed the game very much, even in a losing effort. One of the main reasons I enjoyed the game is that Dick Vitale didn't show up. What a pleasure it was to listen to the commentary for this game, commentary that was, for the most part, unbiased.

I agree with Harry2016 and wally. I especially agree with Hannas when asked if he thought he might have been fouled on a drive late in the game and he answered " I got fouled a lot". But when you go to the Box score you will see his Free Throw results for the game was 0-0. And the team as a whole shot 5-8 over the entire game. Three of those attempts and makes came on one play so Arkansas had an opportunity to shoot 5 free throws in the rest of the entire game.

I can understand some of the fans wanted to blame the officials for this loss, but a reporter with the alleged stature of a Wally Hall? It seems bush-league of him to whine about the refs. After all, he is in the Hall of Fame.

Can anyone explain the logic of having Manny Watkins playing more minutes than either Hannahs or Macon. Watkins gets 4 points in 29 minutes and Macon has 19 in 26. And Dusty only played 19 minutes himself. Imagine Kentucky having Fox or Monk not starting just to make their bench points look better. Wouldn't blame Macon for not coming back next year.

Spoken like a true man not playing with a full deck muleheaed... er... rider.

Oh... and hogs17... Hannah was on the bench because the last 7 times he had the ball he had 5 turnovers. Watkins plays because he's the second best defensive player on the team. (After Kingsley) Macon was only on the bench when his leg went bad! But thanks for your opinion.

Boudinman... no one here is dissing the razorbacks heart. But when reaching fouls by NC continually go uncalled while the Hawgs get charging calls over and over is just infuriating. It's Razorbacks v Florida on football all over again. Let people vent... the one Non-call on Berry changed everything and even my NC friends have admitted that. But it was an awesome game. Time to get serious with the diamond Hawgs (men and women).

Proud of the way the Hogs battled, they outplayed Carolina yesterday. You have to score in the last 3 minutes to win the ball game, period. Barford's block from behind, Berry's charge/travel no call and Macon's tipped shot were all extremely frustrating. The Elite, Blue Bloods(Carolina, Kentucky, Duke, etc...) seem to get a lot of no calls a game. Carolina's game is getting to the line, but 25 to 8 and the Hogs only shooting 2 in the 2nd half is ridiculous. Like someone else said, you've got to play your way into a better seed where it's harder to make those "no calls" in the later rounds. Anyway, better year for the Hogs next year. Even if the ADG insists on calling them UAF, even though no one else in the country does. Go Hogs!!
