First off..I am not even going to get into this teams strengths and weaknesses because it is without a doubt, a rebuilding year. New guards, new coach and a new system. It would be amazing if this team could just break even this year. However, expect them to be a seller team all year and finish dead last in the Sec West. There will be better years ahead for Arkansas basketball. I like Heath, he's a lot different than Richardson and that's good because Arkansas basketball needed a change. Dont expect to see 40 minutes of hell next year. Expect a slower version of basketball and in time, expect Arkansas to be back but this is clearly a rebuilding year for the Razorbacks. It could get ugly.

"For our team, this is not a rebuilding year," Stan Heath said on TSN. "I want to make that very clear, contrary to popular belief. We lost quite a few guys, but I really like the attitude and mindset of the guys."

It will be a long year. And if Ronnie Brewer doesn't stay in state, next year will be long as well. Hit the JUCO's coach.
