Arkansas just needs to avoid ‘screwing it up’ to make NCAA Tournament, bracketologist says

Loss at Florida doesn’t hurt Hogs’ hopes of dancing in March Madness

By Bart Pohlman

If CBS Sports bracketologist Jerry Palm is to be believed, Arkansas just needs to avoid “screwing it up” in its final games to make the NCAA Tournament.

Palm joined Sports Talk on Thursday, and said the loss at Florida isn’t going to hurt Arkansas’ chances at going dancing.

“Arkansas is in a good position,” Palm said. “They just need to not screw it up. Losing at Florida doesn’t qualify as screwing it up.”

At the end of the day, the Razorbacks, who currently sit at No. 29 in the NCAA’s RPI, are going to make it, Palm said.

“I believe Arkansas is going to make it,” Palm said. “I haven’t taken them off the bubble yet, because I believe they’re susceptible to getting jumped.”

Palm currently has Arkansas as a 10-seed playing 7-seed Miami in Sacramento. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi also has the Hogs as a 10-seed, playing 7-seed Dayton in Tulsa.

A first-round game in Tulsa would be an exciting prospect for Razorback fans, as the BOK Center is only a two-hour drive from the University of Arkansas’ campus.

Palm said there’s a chance it could happen.

“I think if the selection committee has an opportunity to put Arkansas in Tulsa, they will, because they like to keep teams close to home,” he said.
